Insta-Forum: How Do You Feel About Bethesda’s E3 2017 Press Conference?

Bethesda had a short-but-sweet press conference, showing off some heavy hitters like Wolfenstein II and The Evil Within 2. But how did you like the event?

We are now down three of the larger press conferences at E3, and Bethesda continues through 2017 with another showing. Sure, it had less pizzazz than Microsoft’s onslaught of games (with varying degrees of “exclusivity”), but there were some strong points: notably Wolfenstein and The Evil Within 2.

But there was some padding to fill out the relatively short, 30-minute conference. There was the much-expected VR showing with both Fallout 4 VR and the latest edition in DOOM‘s series, DOOM VFR — notably only on PC via HTC Vive.

Of course, Nintendo got a bit of love with a brand new trailer (showing amiibo support) for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch. In case anyone has ever wondered “I wonder what traversing Skyrim with the Master Sword would be like.”

And finally, some iterations on previous software and announcements. The Elder Scrolls Online will be getting ‘Horns of the Reach’ and ‘Clockwork City’ DLCDishonored will be coming out with a standalone expansion; and Quake Champions is nabbing BJ Blazkowicz as a new hero.

But enough about what actually happened, what did you think of the mini-conference? What game or announcement stood out the best? Do you think Bethesda had enough announcements to warrant their own conference? Let us know below, and light this comment section aflame.
