Time not moving fast enough? Well the Daily Reaction crew is here with our tips on how to spend the next 10 days until E3 2105. Enjoy!
Chandler: Watch the Fallout 4 trailer again. Hold mixed feelings about the visuals. Speculate on if the game will be good or bad based solely on the extremely limited information we know, and reminisce about the good old days of Fallout. Attack anyone on the internet who liked New Vegas more than Fallout 3. Harbor a deep love/hate relationship for Nathan Drake Collection, just because you can’t fully hate the half-tuck.
Dan: With your anger still smoldering over the Fallout 4 visuals, you can take out your aggression online with this week’s Trials of Osiris challenge on Destiny. So, make sure to gather a group of your best buds, turn on every download you can find to make that ping nice and red, and go get ‘em tiger. Remember, if they can hit you, you aren’t downloading enough E.D.M. You angsty teen, you.
PS. Don’t forget your
Rockstar Red Bull energy drinks.
Chandler: If you missed The Industry comic on Friday June 4th, go back and check that out. I’m sure it will have been hilarious in its own special way. In fact, why not take a look at all of them and then catch up on some of the past Daily Reactions while you’re at it? It’s Saturday, so you should probably play some Witcher 3 today while thinking about all that yard and housework that you should be doing instead. It’s ok. It can wait.
Dan: With only 48 hours to go till The Elder Scrolls Online takes over your life, it is best to make sure you do finish up playing everything else. Haven’t gotten to the Lighthouse in Destiny? Well, at this point it is too late, you aren’t going back and you know it. Haven’t beaten The Witcher 3 yet? Well, no one has, there’s just too much to do. So, now is the time to start working on that cough so you can call in to work tomorrow, because you, the couch, and that family pack of Red Bull from Costco will have to get it done.
Chandler: With The Elder Scrolls Online mere hours away, you can try to play other games, but you know you’ll be compulsively checking the countdown timer until the game unlocks on Monday at 9 PM PST and you can finally dive into Tamriel with your friends. Instead of wasting your time trying to figure out what to play in the meantime, maybe you can hop online and plan out your character loadout. Your TESO race and faction may be the most important life choice you ever have to make.
Dan: With ESO officially out, why are you reading this. Go play it. See you just before the atrophy kicks in.
Chandler: Two major life choices in one week? Well, listening to the Bad Gamer’s podcast isn’t so much a choice as it is a simple necessity. Be sure to compulsively check the internet for new announcements, leaks, rumors, or Illuminati conspiracies to ensure that you’re the first one to know about Nathan Drake’s new 1080p moles. Sully calls it his “beauty mark.”
Dan: With only a few days to go before the first of E3’s press conferences kick off, someone somewhere will have leaked something or posted a rumor about some highly anticipated game making an appearance at the show. So, either you are pissed off that we are seeing yet another [insert name], or [insert name] just looks terrible. Maybe we are finally getting The Last Guardian, but we aren’t, because by now Bird-Cat has died of old age, and so has the last guardian himself. Either way, the internet has probably fueled your rage batteries so that you can ready your keyboard for the wars ahead.
Chandler: Last day of the work week before E3. You ought to be following up on those reports, or filing some kind of form with someone in corporate, but you can’t keep your eyes off the clock. Why? E3 conferences aren’t until Sunday at the earliest, and it’s not like you’re actually going to DO anything when you get home. Try to forget about E3. It will make it go faster. Seriously. Forget about E3 2015 for right now. Don’t think about E3. You still have many hours to wait until E3, so Friday is all about not thinking about E3 and doing something non-E3 related. E3.
Dan: Forgotten about E3? Good. Well, now its time to remember. Make sure everyone else knows that you are going dark over the next week. By now you should already be prepared. Bottled water? Check. Canned food? Check. Answering machine letting people know you aren’t dead, but to come check on you after the week lets out, and to burn your hard-drive if you don’t make it out? Check.
