E3 EA's Conference... Typically boring...

There's a lack of E3 posts so, I'm looking to fix that. Starting with EA... Like every year prior, it's boring as Hell. As usual, they start off with another Madden game, showcasing a story mode called "Longshot," which didn't catch my interest... But it felt like a step in the right direction in adding new content to Madden. Next was Battlefield as they're going back to basics with a World War 1 meeting and multiplayer... Woot...-_- They showed a Fifa trailer, and also showcased Madden and NBA being in e-sports. For the elderly on Mylot reading this, "e-sports"is where people play video games competitively at selected venues for money. I'm personally ashamed to see video games based off of football, basketball, and Soccer thrown into this form of entertainment... -_- There's also another Need For Speed game. It's a car racing game, but this felt like Fast In The Furious with the "car-jacking" gameplay. It looked nice graphic wise, but I don't get why it's called "Payback." Next was a game called "No Way Out," which seems to a jail-break story with a revenge angle. The selling point seems to be the mandatory "two-player co-op" based story mode... I'll look into further to see if it gets interesting. Next was a new IP from Mass Effect developers Bioware, called Anthem. It put me in mind of Attack On Titan and Kabenari Iron Fortress... All that was shown was a cinematic trailer with no hint of what the plot was, yet I'm sure there's hype for it... Next was their service EA Live, which is a part of their online service "EA Access," moving on...-_- The next NBA game will have a story mode called "The One." No it's not as interesting as it sounds as it's "career mode," from what I saw. For those who don't play video games "career mode" is a mode in a sports based video game where you create an athlete and have them go through a "career" in the in game sport. And an hour into the conference, they got to the game everyone wanted to hear the most about:"Star Wars:Battlefront II." It might be me being a casual Star Wars fan, but the gameplay of multiplayer and what little single-player they showed was standard "third person shooter" fair. There will also be pre-order DLC, but I'm not interested in that. They also showed thirty minutes of multiplayer gameplay, which got boring to watch after ten minutes... So yeah EA's conference was boring, which is standard for EA these days... So what are your thoughts on EA's E3 Conference?

@TiarasOceanView From what I've seen it has a cult following, which would explain the remake. See some gamers are fiercely enthusiastic about franchises they enjoy. As a result certain games get further installments, or remade... Well they get remade if there's a high enough demand for it. Or in the case of Shadow Of Colossus(as far as I can tell) if the sales and market is already there. There are people who own certain games on a console, but will buy the HD edition on the next generation console, just to play it on that console. In some cases it makes sense to do this because some consoles like my PS3 aren't backwards compatible...

I had a geekgasm from Dragonball heroez! A dbz fighting game that plays like Marvel vs. Capcom 2. I am also hyped by Bethesda for the sequel of Evil within and Fallout 4. I am disappointed with Marvel vs. Capcom infinite, the characters looks off.

@CaptAlbertWhisker I was gonna bring up Marvel Vs. Capcom in my thoughts of the Sony conference. And Dragon Ball Heroez? You mean Dragon Ball Fighterz? Because I would flip my $#@! if we EVER get a port of Dragon Ball Heroes... But yeah I'mma give my thoughts on Dragon Ball Fighterz when I post about Microsoft's conference. And whadda ya mean "the characters look off" in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite?

@Hanyouyomi thanks for the correction, I am indeed talking about Dragonball FighterZ. About MVCI characters looking off, look at Chun-li's face.
The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite story demo has been live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One since Monday ...
