Pretty livid I didn't go with 'Be there or be Square' for the strap right now.
Well, at the very least they kept it brief. Square Enix offered a quick 30 minute recap of its offerings over the next few months, dropping in the announcement of a new PlatinumGames joint, Babylon's Fall, as well as the mysterious looking The Quiet Man. And that, pretty much, was that.
Also hello, welcome to the second day of E3 conferences that kicks off nice and early and takes us through to the early hours of tomorrow morning.
After yesterday's incredible shows I'm genuinely thrilled to see what's in store.
We can expect a detailed look at Life is Strange 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Just Cause 4.
Which is quite a lot to be getting on with already really.
But hey we're never satisfied, so give us a look at Crystal Dynamic's Avengers game and Left Alive as well while you're at it.
Oh and look, thanks to our lovely tech team we have side by side comments now up with our live reports.
So it's all one love-in once again. Thank you, boffins! Thoffins.
Hooray for the Tech Team! Do they get a day off now for good behaviour?
They don't have to work 'til 5am this morning, so...
Dream announcements in the next 60 minutes or so - Final Fantasy 12 on Switch, a new Final Fantasy Tactics from Matsuno for the Switch, all Final Fantasy games from now on to be set in Ivalice.
And Nomura to be banished from making games ever again as he's demoted to janitor.
If ffvii remake is to be at thid years e3 is more likely to be in sony's or square enix's show?
Whatever they show on FF7 remake it'll be very early doors seeing as the project was seemingly rebooted not so long ago.
Just give FF7 remake to someone else and trap Nomura in a dungeon to make KH Games forever until he learns the definition of optimization.
Would also be up for this.
I hope to see some more localized Dragon Quest XI too.
MFW Final Fantasy 7 doesn't show up
How could I forget? I'm really looking forward to Dragon Quest 11, though I keep forgetting about it as it came out in Japan so long ago.
This'll be a pre-recorded video, so if you're hoping for some bizarre celebrity cameos going horribly awry you might be disappointed.
E3 Monday 2018 is go go go.
The big man Matsuda takes the stage.
Or the video or whatever you want to call it. Anyway he's talking to us. Pay attention will you.
Kicking off with Lara. Is it problematic to say I preferred the old classic Lara?
That is the correct opinion.
The third prequel for Tomb Raider, in which Lara might finally become Lara, is kicking off things.
Plenty of mild peril in this cutscene intro, as is the norm for this new Tomb Raider.
There's more of a survival element to this one, a little bit of Batman detective mode because hey it's 2009 all over again.
"Become one with the jungle." So it's Tomb Raider 3: Snake Eater?
What happened to her dual wielding? Wasn't that the climax to the first prequel, which was then conveniently forgotten for its sequel.
Anyway stealth is fine, and obviously Eidos Montreal know a thing or two about embracing different play-styles coming off the back of Deus Ex.
And Thief also though the less said about that the better.
Also this is really dark and it's quite bright here in Brighton so I don't know really but they're really doubling down on the shadow part of this Shadow of the Tomb Raider right now.
Well that's gone a bit grimmer than the earlier games, which was just what the series was calling out for.
I'm sure it's going to be a fun diversion and I'm going to play it, but I'm also looking forward to the deboot of this series.
Final Fantasy 14, the absolutely fantastic MMO that's all I've ever wanted from Final Fantasy and yet I can never find the time to actually properly play it, is up next.
"body here looks recent" you were talking to him 10 seconds ago
I want a stealth game where upon finding a body, the guard's like "OH MY GOD THEY KILLED STEVE YOU GUYS"
And watching this trailer for Stormblood and the imminent patch Under the Moonlight just makes me think I should sack off all other games for a while and just get stuck in.
Alright, this Monster Hunter World crossover has pushed me over. Let's take down Rathalos in FF14!
The Life is Strange prequel, which we've already glimpsed, is up now - it's a free download later this month and will lead into the full Life is Strange sequel.
Dragon Quest 11 now, which is a certified banger.
Can't quite believe we're getting a proper single-player Dragon Quest soon over here, and after the slightly disappointing Ni No Kuni 2 I'm very much up for a deep, lengthy traditional JRPG to play.
This looks great, but while the trailer was playing all the FF12 diehards at Eurogamer all made a pact to properly make a go of playing Final Fantasy 14.
So there goes the rest of my free time the next few months.
Still no news on the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11 - or the 3DS version coming west, I don't think.
Babylon's Fall, a new game from PlatinumGames.
No idea what it's about, but it's out in 2019 and yes I will definitely play it. Wonder if it's what Kamiya is on at the moment?
Did you just call me an FF12 diehard?
No. You're not invited, go back to playing Kingdom Hearts.
(also please do actually join our group because you're better at games than any of us).
Octopath Traveller, which is out so, so soon gets its moment in the spotlight.
And now Just Cause 4. It's a fairly rapid run through everything that's on Square Enix's books at the moment.
In keeping with every game at this year's E3, it has weather.
I just hope it has a bit more of a personality and a reason to exist than Just Cause 3, which was very much inessential.
Weather is the new throat stab
Out in December - which I think we might have known already.
Is this... Deus Ex?
Or Marvel. Anyway it's a live action trailer for something all-new.
The Quiet Man. I have no idea.
Has a Remedy vibe to it, though there's a bit more hand-to-hand combat in it. It's PS4 and Steam, and we'll find out more in August - presumably at Gamescom.
My mum always said if you've got nothing nice to say, say nothing.
So I'll keep quiet during this Kingdom Hearts 3 recap.
That might have been it, seeing as we've gone straight into a quickfire recap.
So, The Quiet Man, a mysterious looking live action/fisticuffs thing, and a new PlatinumGames joint.
Is about the sum of it.
Hmmm. At least it was only 30 minutes.
Well... that was dry.
Dry bowser indeed.
Well, things can only get better from here on out. Ubisoft is up next at 9pm BST, and they'll certainly have more to discuss.
And I shall see you then.
