E3 and Beer


We all know what the most important thing in this page is, right?

Theresa has beer.

She'd had to wait a few more years to get that legally back home!

Meanwhile, there's a bunch of new announcements coming out of E3. We've got some brief looks at Mass Effect Andromeda's gameplay, we've got Titanfall 2, Walking Dead season 3, new Fallout 4 DLC, Dishonored 2, and, most intriguingly but oddly of all, a story mode for FIFA 17.

Oh, yeah. Also a remaster of Skyrim for the PS4 and XB1. Let's talk about that.

Skyrim was okay. It wasn't great.

There. I said it.

Why do I say this? Well, first let's start with the block of wood you drive around. It just doesn't matter what your block of wood is. Sure, you can customize it with specific abilities but it remains a block of wood with no emotion, no motivation, no background, and no life to it.

I think Mass Effect spoiled me.

The other problem is it is an open world where you don't matter. You kill someone, everything just more or less goes on following its prescripted routines. You become head of a fighting guild or a mage college and you're still treated the same no matter where you go instead of as leader of a powerful organization. Hell, you don't even get to govern your organization! "You're leader now! Here's your apartment! No go away."

Seriously, what's up with that?

See everyone Thursday!
