The Daily Moot (11/15/18)

News Picks

1. Playstation will NOT be Attending E3

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (11/15/18) image 2

  For the first time in E3’s 24-year history, Playstation will not be attending the event. In lieu of E3, it sounds like Playstation has something unique up their sleeves, saying that are looking for “inventive opportunities to engage the community” and that they “can’t wait” to share their plans. What exactly are these plans? Your guess is as good as mine. Hopefully we’ll be hearing some specifics in the near future.

  2. West Virginia Makes “Reclamation Day” from Fallout 76 a Reality   In honor of Fallout 76, November 14th has been officially named “Reclamation Day” by the state of West Virginia. Fallout 76, which takes place in West Virginia, has brought significant amounts of attention and tourism to West Virginia, and it's clear the state has benefited tremendously from the game’s publicity. Despite being a post-apocalyptic franchise, the relationship between Fallout and West Virginia has been nothing but positive; making Reclamation Day official is just the icing on the cake.

  3. USC is Paving the Way for the Future of Esports   The University of Southern California has just announced the launch of their Esports Union (ESU). Unlike other collegiate esports teams, the ESU will act as a varsity team for the Trojans, helping pave the way for esports as a major sport in the public eye. They are currently focused on League of Legends, which was founded by USC graduates Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill, but they intend to add Overwatch and Super Smash Brothers in the near future. This is a great sign for the future of esports and should help legitimize elite gamers as serious competitors worthy of attention from powerhouse universities.

  4. Nintendo Shuts Down Rumors of the N64 Classic   Following the success of the NES and SNES Classic, many die hard Nintendo fans assumed that a N64 Classic would be the next logical step. Unfortunately, Nintendo shut down those rumors, explaining that they only released the NES and SNES Classic as a marketing scheme to promote the Nintendo Switch. Although they didn’t rule out the possibility of a N64 Classic in the future, they have made it clear that they won’t be releasing it anytime soon.

  5. Telltale Games is Going Under   After a year filled with scandals and turmoil, it appears that Telltale Games is finally shutting down. Although they had a good run, especially with series like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, it seems that Telltale Games couldn’t overcome their poor management decisions. Many of their games are starting to be removed removed from the Steam Marketplace so now is likely your last chance to buy their games before they’re gone for good.

    Would have liked to see a N64 classic. I always liked playing mario 64.

    🚫 Sony at E3 2019... Stupid Move.

    Not really !

    E3 has not the same appeal it used to have in the past.
    Some actors of the market started making their own events, which isn’t a bad move at all.

    It would have happened sooner or later.

    I think thier skipping 2019 because of the ps5 rumors and also 2019 might not be a big year for them in terms of game releases. 2018 had a lot of big releases from RDR2 to Spider-Man and god of war.

  • Ninjero LV.20 Nightmare Nov 17, 2018, 02:16 AM

    Yeah, Days Gone, Cyberpunk 2077, Kingdom Hearts III, and Ghosts of Tsushima, Code Vein, and Shadows Die Twice look really lame. We might also get Death Stranding and the Final Fantasy VII Remake, which no one want, either. /sarcasm

    Chances are, they're doing this because they're having their own show, the same way that Blizzard has Blizzcon, EA has whatever, and other developers have theirs.

    In the world of competitive gaming, it makes a little more sense to have your own show because you can focus all of your energy on attracting a variety of core & casual gamers instead of focusing on how to stand out to them versus your competition at a major industry event. E3 is potentially a little less relevant in the current landscape.

    Smash like here if you can’t wait for a PS5 or any new console from Sony, maybe an all 4K PC like graphics gaming system would be great!!

  • K1ngdomCome LV.10 Nomad Nov 17, 2018, 03:05 AM

    If people play console because they cant afford a pc then I'm sure they won't be waiting for a "4k pc like gaming system"

  • Ninjero LV.20 Nightmare Nov 17, 2018, 04:36 PM
