Bethesda Press Conference

I think I'm just going to write up E3 thoughts whenever they strike this week, instead of waiting for my normal posting schedule.

I just watched the Bethesda Press Conference and it was... ok?  I have to fess up, I'm not a huge Fallout fan.  Or Doom fan.  Or Dishonored fan.  I don't even think I like the Elder Scrolls as much as most people.

Honestly, I usually play a Bethesda game for a week or two, grow bored of it, and move on with my life.  That's where I'm coming from, so keep that in mind.

I watched the press conference anyway because it's E3 and I'm interested.

To me, Doom looked super generic and bloody but not all that interesting.

Dishonored 2 was basically a pre-rendered concept trailer so who cares.  I'll hold off having real thoughts until I see gameplay.

Elder Scrolls card game looks like it wants a piece of that sweet sweet Hearthstone money.  Now that Blizzard has proved there's a market for mobile digital card games it's not surprising that we'll start seeing more.  Could be good, who knows.  Again, I'll wait for gameplay.

Fallout 4 shows some promise.  I liked Fallout 3, but didn't love Fallout 3.  This looks like more of the same... but with some other features added and slightly better graphics.  I'm interested enough that I'll probably pick it up on release and play it for a few weeks, but I don't anticipate it being revolutionary for me.  The most exciting part of Fallout 4 for me is actually just watching everyone else get so excited for it.  I loved seeing it blow up on Twitter during the conference.  That was really cool.

The most interesting thing to come out of the Bethesda conference for me was actually Fallout Shelter, the mobile game.  I saw that and instantly knew that I could kill some time with it.  I'm super excited that it comes out tonight.  I'll play it this week and get back to you.

What did you guys think of the announcements?
