It's always difficult to know what's real at E3 and what's not.
You sit and watch a trailer for an upcoming game that looks like the best game ever made and it inevitably disappoints. Conversely, the game you saw at E3 that looked like another average game ends up having stellar play and becomes your next favorite.
The problem is: You just can't tell by watching a five-minute trailer at E3. So you have to look beyond the trailer and imagine two different scenarios. First, imagine that the game you just saw is better than the one you just saw, and two, imagine what will happen if it is worse.
This is what causes the E3 show to be both exciting and disappointing at the same time. But we try as hard as we can to keep a positive outlook. It may not sound like it sometimes, but we do.
This week's show is our first after this year's E3 show, and we talk about a bunch of games: Skull and Bones, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Burger Time, Resident Evil 2, Déraciné, Gears of War 5, Anthem, Kingdom Hearts 3, Dead or Alive 6 and Death Stranding, among others.
And there's no way we could wedge in everything we wanted to talk about. So we'll come back at you again next week to talk about things like Assassin's Creed Odyssey. But that's next week.
For now, please give a listen and join in as we discuss the new games in ESH Cast #590: I don’t know what I saw, but here’s what I think I saw.
