Fallout 4! Dishonored 2! Doom 4! It’s all here and it’s all for the press!
Here, you shall find our live blog of Bethesda’s press conference!
Mike’s gonna be here because Brian is too busy being an adult to be here for the beginning of the conference.
6:47: Oh Wow, Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb seem to hosting Bethesda’s pre-show. There’s banking on my nostalgia….go on….
6:53: They’re getting a lot of mileage out of the Fallout 4 trailer. As they probably should.
7:03: Getting a lot of mileage out of that 4 second clip of Doom Bethesda released is actually kind of funny.
7:14: You’re a guy shooting aliens on Mars with a shotgun. This is certainly Doom. Though this game does look very nice with some really interesting melee finishers thrown into the mix. What is concerning is how long you can “just shoot guys” before that gets old, now matter how good your game looks.
7:19: Ok, the chainsaw is really absurd and this game is really bloody. Also getting beaten to death with your own arm can’t be fun.
7:24: Doom Snapmap seems to be their open source map creator. That could be really cool. Here’s the thing though, I can’t imagine this game running nearly as well on consoles. I can actually see it being a mess there. This looks like a PC-assed PC game and I hope the Snapnap helps leverage that.
7:29: They tore out a demon’s heart and made him eat it….
7:31: Doom looks very interesting
7:33: Battlecry. Yeah that looks like an Alpha.
7:34: I know it’s really easy to compare every class-based online shooter to Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch but Battlecry looks a lot like Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch.
7:39: From what I could tell from that pre-rendered trailer, that seems like some more Dishonored if you’re into that sort of thing.
7:42: Yeah, there’s gonna be more Elder Scrolls Online.
7:45: “We want some of that fucking Hearthstone money!” -Bethesda on Elder Scrolls Legends
7:47: Consensus is pushing it…..
7:48: Best week of entertainment ever? I dunno man you just announced an Elder Scrolls card game, I don’t know how you come back from that.
7:53: Alright, gameplay time
7:55: Oh, that lip-syncing is still a little….rough…
7:59: That looks like some fallout but that definitely not a bad thing. This looks really good
8:01: Yup, VATS is still in this game.
8:05: As far a stupid gimmicks go, that’s really good one
8:07: Fallout Shelter. You create That’s a pretty cool idea for a phone game.
8:09: Is it bad that I’m more interested in this than I am in Fallout 4?
8:16: I’m sorry, I passed out briefly because I couldn’t handle it, Fallout 4 is the Game of the Show before the show even began. I’m am so fucking impressed that I cannot describe it.
8:23: Bethesda has brought the big stick to E3. Good luck to all the conferences tomorrow night that are following this. You’re going to fucking need it.
