E3 2018 – A Reflection

It’s now been just over a month since E3 2018 came to a close. Now that I have fully rested from late nights (among other activities outside of E3) I believe it would be a good time to reflect on this year Electronic Entertainment Expo.

From EA’s unenthusiastic kickoff, to Nintendo’s extensive Smash Bros. reveal, you can find out what I thought of E3 2018, after the break. Be warned, the following will be in depth

E3 2018 – The Smashing Return of NintyBeats

Out of all the surprise announcements from E3 2018 this week, there is one I bet you definitely never saw coming… the return of NintyBeats!

For those unaware, a couple years ago I used to run a regular segment which existed solely to give appreciation to the musical history of Nintendo games. Without the music, a lot of games would loose so much of their charm and personality.

What’s a better time to revive the segment than with a preview of some songs featured in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Prepare for auditory pleasure, after the break!

E3 2018 – Nintendo Direct Overview and Reactions

Unfortunately I could not post live updates as I was hosting an E3 viewing party as part of BourneNintendo as well as manning the E3 Bingo Board. I’ve decided that, instead of posting all the updates in multiple posts, I’ve decided to just talk about everything, along with my reactions, in this one post. Not only will it save us bandwidth (not a total issue), but you don’t have to keep loading new posts! Win win!

Anywho, I swear I always start off with the same statement, or similar, either way, that was definitely an interesting Nintendo Direct. I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of announcements as well as impressed, though there have definitely been better Nintendo Directs in the past. Heck, the Nintendo Direct before this one felt more like an E3 Direct!

Without further ado, if you missed out on the direct, you can find our recap after the break!

BourneNintendo – Nintendo E3 Viewing Party 2018

E3 2018 is so close, I can nearly taste it. The real question isn’t what games and hardware will be announced next week, but just what heck would E3 taste like? Well, if I had to guess, pineapple… and cake, but the really good kind of cake.

If you are in Bournemouth next week, why not come down to Bournemouth University’s SUBU building to play some games and watch the entire event live. As part of BourneNintendo and LGBT+ Gaming Society, I am hosting a Nintendo E3 Viewing Party to collectively fanboy over each and every announcement Nintendo makes. Not only that, but I will have the Switch set up to so we can also play some great games while waiting for Nintendo’s presentation. Oh, did I mention there will be snacks to?

When

Tuesday 12th June 2018 from 15:30 until 20:00

Where

Fifth Floor SUBU Building at Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus

Fern Barrow, Poole BH12 5BB
