Salty Truth's E3 2017 Top 5

By Corey Floyd


Last week we were graced by E3 conference. The gaming world comes together in the Ultimate pissing contest to see who can shit on who for the next year. Sony vs Xbox while Nintendo does their own thing. It's always very a wild time and thing you will see is always golden. I Just want to talk about a few things I liked in no particular order.  

5 Cuphead. A few years ago they showed a reveal trailer of this game and I fell in love. I look at the term gamer a little differently than most. I don’t think it just means you play this one particular game really well and you don’t play anything else i.e Madden, COD, Overwatch. When i here that there gaming is just whatever the hot item is I cringe mainly because It has no originality to it. One of the reasons I love Xbox is because they give indy companies a chance to show what they can do. Cuphead is great example of that. It’s a arcade style run around shoot em up like Contra but it’s looks like a old school cartoon. It looks really fun and family friendly. Which is a rarity on any list of mine lol. Here's the Trailer for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TjUPXAn2Rg

4. Assassin's Creed Origins . Now the quality in this series has been called a fall from grace. Since it got to a point they were putting out a games every year. Plus the Unity game failure and subpar sales of their last installment. They went back to Lab took their time and revealed this. One of the things I really enjoyed was they are telling the origin story of the assassins after 7 installments and DLC we never heard how it all began and I wanna know. The gameplay mechanics have been changed. Over the years the mechanics never changed they were too easy. In a gameplay trailer you see they took a few pages from the Dark Souls series. Lucky for us not too many pages. Dodging looks paramount also there's a falcon you can use to look at the terrain ahead kind of like a drone. Also this was the first time we have a Black protagonist and it’s not  DLC or a poorly made PSP title so Hooray !!!!!The trailerr will be put right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2iBAPsQRto

3. Anthem. This is supposed to be their answer for Destiny. Which in my opinion was lackluster due to the fact they did not give you a full story on release and 75% of the DLC was trash. Anthem from what has been shown is a single or multiplayer game where you build and customize these exo suits and fly off and explore the world and take out baddies. Now Luiggi reminded me that it was a EA game so I will tread cautiously on the title. But I’m still excited. Don’t fuck this up EA.

Here’s the trailer, what do you think?. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQhbHwkMSA4

2. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
I’ve always enjoyed the Wolfenstein series personally. Not many games out there where you can take out the worst people in the world. Unless there a game about the KKK. Anyway, the trailer gave us a very bleak America where they took over. From the trailer, it looks like they did some more world building as well as interesting characters. Its definitely the most brutal installment a shotgun blast to the face leaves quite a mess in this game. Plus there’s a giant robotic bog you can control that shoots flames. The trailer right here of course   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZwU5Xil0sA . Is it just me or does this make me feel like one of the Inglorious Bastards in this game?

1.  Beyond Good and Evil 2 was one of the best moments at E3. The sequel to acclaimed playstation 2 title has been in development hell for almost 10 years. Th3 second installment of this Ubisoft title does not have an official release date. From the game developer of the project who was holding back tears after the trailer reveal we learn this will be a prequel of sorts for the series. I say of sorts cause we have not seen Jade who was the main character from the last one. Little else is now for now but if this trailer is of thing to come I cannot wait. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrofwDfzZBk

You may have noticed I did not choose any console exclusives. I Did not want to shun anyone from this convo. But Mario Odyssey does get a special mention. Also We talk about everything else at e3 on our podcast pleases download and check us outhttps://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/amerime-junkies/id1212151606?mt=2  .  Till then peace.

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here http://www.amerimewire.com/2017/05/whos-next-part-two.html but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Made in Abyss Discussion

BY LUIGGI CAVANNA The Final Episode
“This anime season was a little bit underwhelming”, those were my thoughts at the beginning of the season if I recall correctly. I did talk about three different shows of this season in my blog “The Anime Season So Far”, but let me say that “Gamers” didn’t quite recover after episode five, and “Tsurezure Children”, even though stay consistent, was still just a romance anime and if you are not into romance you were shit out of luck. So aside from two-day specials like “Owarimonogatari” or recurring anime like “Boku no Hero Academia” there wasn’t much out there, except for…



Of all the shows from this season, “Made in Abyss” was the one I waited for, every week, with the most anticipation. This show left such a mark on me that I have to talk about it, so I decided to create another segment like “The Anime Season So Far” and name it “The Final Episode”. In this segment, I’ll take a second look at one anime near the ending of a season, in which I’ll discuss…
