Soul of the Samurai – Vidjagame Apocalypse 376

Ghost of Tsushima is out now, and its release seemed like a great excuse for us to grab friend of the show Greg Moore and count down five of our favorite samurai simulators. Then it’s on to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2, Deadly Premonition 2, Ubisoft Forward reveals, and your favorite modern retro games.

Question of the Week: Now that we didn’t have it, do you think we still need E3? Have you changed your mind about this? Why or why not?

  1. haha @mattyj…I realize I’m not answering the QotW when I’m commenting first 🙂 Just commenting on the general episode 🙂

  2. I miss everything being concentrated on a weekend, it got you done for the summer, it got the hype in control. Now it’s like everyone can just do whatever throughout the whole year, the news cycle is just a neverending current of news, and it sure helped Ubisoft not to have to talk in front of a live public this year, considering the lineup changes and allegations. I live in Montreal, and the studio has a reputation.

    As an RPG fan, most conferences were ok at best, Sony was alone, yet they didn’t announce a killer app for the PS5. Still waiting on Nintendo for Zelda 2.

  3. As someone who’s never been to E3 in person, all I want is 5-6 stage shows filmed for my enjoyment. The blistering highs, the butthole clenching lows.i already kinda miss marking out over big surprise releases.

  4. I don’t really miss E3 at all. As someone who’s never gone, and will never go, E3 was just a series of trailers that all show up at once every year. The press conferences were really just a generator of laughs whenever something went wrong, or something embarrassing happened.
    At least with everyone doing their own thing, you didn’t have to que up a hundred trailers to watch in a few days in order to see everything. It was more spaced out, and more palatable.
