E3 is over, and this year’s big games have release dates (save your pennies now). After descending on Los Angeles, the large group of gaming journalists, companies, and PR reps from around the world are heading home on planes, trains, and automobiles.
As they head back to their offices to praise or malign the games they saw, our own editor, Chris Harding, enjoys a grand adventure in Las Vegas. If you see a British guy with a love for danger and gas station hot dogs, buy him a drink. You won’t regret it.
For those of us who couldn’t attend E3, here’s what we will be doing this weekend.
This weekend will feature a Kyle Durant trying to make the NBA since NBA2K19 was only 2.99 on the Days of Play Sale. I will also crack open my PSVR again and try out some Batman VR and Beat Saber finally.
I’ve now started Dark Souls 3 so I’ll be putting some time into that as well as playing Resident Evil Revelations 2 in coop with Hope and giving some attention to a review game. I’m seeing my favourite band Tool in Amsterdam next week so much of the weekend will be spent readying myself for that!
I’m still pinching myself that The Witcher 3 is coming to Switch, so I’m going to try and get a little further into its expansions on the PS4. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, and which deserves to be finally finished.
Cocaine, neon lights, slots, repeat.
Beer, the flashing blue lights of my VR headset, and Immortal Legacy. Repeat.
I’ll be celebrating with some fathers this weekend and trying to decide if there’s anything else in the Days of Play Sale I have to buy. We will probably finish LEGO Jurassic Park. (I hope.) For games that don’t consist of blocks, I have started Dying Light, and it’s made me very interested in the sequel. If nothing else, I’ll probably give the new content in Path of Exile some more time.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
