I had to watch half of the PC Gaming Show while driving over to Graev's where I was able to catch the rest with him. Was this the very first year for this showcase? I liked it. I think fair exposure for PC gaming at E3 is always a plus. The entire event is so skewed towards console games -- not that I personally mind that these days -- that it's nice to see a bit the other direction. I thought Day9 did a nice job hosting.
Read on for our thoughts on specific games shown.
Overall Thoughts on PC Gaming Show
There were some real winners and some real stinkers shown during this show, but that's mostly my personal preferences of not being interested in particular games. In general I think the show was fine.
Overall score: "Fine to Good"
While we’re waiting for Satisfactory, have you tried Factorio? As far as I can tell, the former will be like a 3D version of the latter. 🙂
Actually I havenâ€™t. Something about being in that first person immersive perspective does a lot more for me than the isometric POV. If you think Factorio will provide the kind of experience Iâ€™m looking for… I might have to give it a shot.
They’ve been doing the PC show for at least few years now. I think the first was pretty clunky with a weird talk show shtick. They seem to have sorted it out the last year or two by having Day do a more traditional stage MC kind of role.
I’ve totally missed them then. Definitely on my list of conferences to watch/attend moving forward.
