Game with the Dtoid community
E3 2014 has finally come to a close. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was very happy with what was shown. Microsoft came out with a bang this year, focusing on what we all wanted from the get go, games. Sony’s presentation was decent as well, even if it did become a bit, long-winded towards the end. And then there was Nintendo, the doomed company who just can’t seem to get with the times…Oh, did I mention they absolutely killed it this year?! Yea, because they did, in my opinion anyway. Nintendo’s digital direct as well as on the floor games coverage via their TreeHouse Direct presentations absolutely made me fall in love with games all over again.
I do have one complaint though, one that I saw echoed on my Twitter and Facebook feeds, out of all the amazing games shown, how many were slated for 2015? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome that next year is gonna be rad for gaming, but damn, seems like the rest of this year as well as the holiday season may be slim pickings.
Oh well, I’ll be plenty busy anyway in the coming months with moving and all, so there should be plenty to keep me busy until the flood of games next year. How about the rest of you Friday Faithful?
What stood out to you the most?
And on that note…..let’s get to the games!
New to FNF? Read this!Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in theforums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in thecommunity blogsthanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.
