Tridrakious is gone, but Taborius knows…the show must go on! So what does Taborius do when Tridrakious is not around to keep him on track? Well…you’ll just have to watch to find out.
Taborius and Tridrakious discuss the possibilities of Capcom being bought by one of the “Big 3”. The chances of Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo purchasing the japanese giant is very likely.
With franchises like Monster Hunter, Resident Evil and Street Fighter, what could happen if Capcom were bought out by one of the console makers?
Alright, Sony had way too much to talk about and while they started strong and ended strong…the middle of the conference was very much mixed.
LittleBigPlanet 3, The Order: 1886, Destiny (including alpha and beta announcements), Batman: Arkham Knight, a slew of indie titles led by Hotline Miami 2 and finishing the event with Uncharted 4!
Mixed in the middle was announcements for PlayStation TV, a PlayStation Now release date and various new services and even shows/movies (Ratchet and Clank is getting all the damn love.)
Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Just Dance 2015, Just Dance Now and even Shape Up were the bulk of the conference. However, Rainbow Six: Patriots finished up the their presser which was a nice addition to a fairly bland conference.
E3 2014 kicked off with Microsoft leading the charge. From their conference you could pick up the vibe that Microsoft (and it’s publishing partners) strongly believe in the future of cooperative player…who knew gamers like playing together. A few standouts were,

Phantom Dust (remaking or sequel to late PS2 generation game from Majesco)
Project Spark, which now features 100% more Conker!
Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac Games’ first Xbox exclusive and it simply looks amazing.
