The EA Play event on Saturday, June 9th, set the mood for the rest of E3. The EA Play event was a boring, lackluster affair that saw EA spending more time promoting how “woke” they were about bully prevention rather than unveiling games people cared about. It was a precursor of the faux “social progressivism” pushed through video game agitprop that would later define this year’s trade show, indicating that the hardcore gaming industry you grew up with is now in a galaxy long ago and far away.
Microsoft tried to save the day by actually showing a bevy of games – a few of which actually look like they’re worth playing. But then the company stumbled over itself with Gears POP! and Gears of War 5, both of which illicited groans from the hardcore audience. Even bringing back a geriatric Dante in Devil May Cry 5 wasn’t enough to wash the cringe away.
Worse yet is that Grand Admiral Phil Spencer virtue-signaled heavily about being a “privileged white guy” during the E3 Coliseum, which is why they were focusing more on diversity in their corporate structure and in games like Gears of War 5, as opposed to making products people actually want to buy. This was reiterated later on in a Women in Games panel at the E3 Coliseum that also pushed for more females to replace males in traditional masculine game roles.
Bethesda and Nintendo kind of fell flat on their faces this year, but Sony was the one who took the cringe cake.
Neil Druckmann got triggered a while ago when some gamers noted that they didn’t like the homosexuality featured in The Last of Us. In order to find catharsis for his triggering, Druckmann responded by saying that he would be adding more diversity in his games to combat anti-SJWs. This culminated in a sloppy, sweaty, lesbian lip-lock in The Last of Us 2‘s E3 trailer that aired during the Sony E3 press conference. While Google and SJW media outlets rampantly work hard to squelch dissent, gamers made it known that they were not fond of Druckmann’s SJW antics.
Nevertheless, Druckmann succeeded in getting revenge for the SJWs, using The Last of Us 2 as a vehicle for the rising force of the Imperial Intersectionality.
These stories and so much more in this E3 edition of the Weekly Recap.

Did you know that Ellie was a gay lesbian? Well, if you didn’t know before you sure as heck know now that Ellie is a gay lesbian.

EA’s Patrick Soderlund Calls Battlefield V Critics Uneducated
Now here’s a bold move from Electronic Arts, the CCO of the company, Patrick Soderlund, outed gamers who have been critical of Battlefield V by calling them uneducated. All the details you could possibly ever need for Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu have been laid out. Details about The Division 2 have also emerged, revealing that the game features a map that’s 20% larger than the first game, and a dedicated endgame after level 30. A new Nintendo Switch exclusive called Daemon X Machina is on the way, as it features a fast-paced, third-person mech setup based on concepts from the director of Armored Core. And yet another Star Wars author decided to take a dump on the fans, calling them detestable if they happen to be anti-SJW.
Feminist Frequency Strikes Again
It wouldn’t be a cringe-worthy E3 if we didn’t have Anita Sarkeesian and the Feminist Frequency troupe parading around some flimsy numbers to push for their gender diversity agenda. In this case, the culture activists took aim at the amount of women featured in games at this year’s event, criticizing companies for not adding more female leads to games, even though more than 50% of the games they monitored featured the option to play as a male or female. If you need to wash your palate of that nastiness there’s some new footage of Free Radical’s version of Star Wars: Battlefront 3, which is worth checking out for people who enjoyed the original Pandemic games. The Taipei Game Show released its attendee stats and it basically further proves what most stats have always proven: majority of hardcore gamers are male. And the moderators over the Battlefield sub-reddit have censored all discussion regarding historical accuracy for the upcoming Battlefield V.
