E3 things!  
E3 is so great and technically it hasn't even started yet.

I watched the entire Nintendo World Championships live, which, as you may have heard, was absolutely great. Whoever designed those Super Mario Maker levels was totally twisted and evil. There was yelling. LOLOLOL.

Next up was Bethesda's first E3 appearance, and man, they did not disappoint! I've never played Doom, but they announced Dishonored 2 with a trailer featuring... grown-up Emily! My little baby! ;~~~; Apparently things have gone pear-shaped for her again and she's out to either set it right or get revenge. They said that they picked an ending from the first game, and I highly suspect it was the worse High Chaos ending (although it's possible for Emily to die in High Chaos, which is... obviously not the case here) because The Outsider asks her if she deserves anything Corvo won for her when she was TEN. SHE WAS TEN. It's not her fault if Corvo was a bloodthirsty murderer XD;

That bums me out because I always play Low Chaos and I like the idea of Corvo the 'Assassin' Who Didn't Actually Kill a Single Person After Everything He'd Been Through (I enjoy non-lethal playthroughs), but... Emily. As long as she gets a happy ending in Low Chaos, I'll be happy.

Also, I wasn't interested in Fallout until they talked about Fallout 4. Now I'm super excited. What have they done to me.

I didn't watch Ubisoft's presentation (or Nintendo's. POOR SAKURAI. He works so hard...), but we did get the new Mass Effect's title: Mass Effect Andromeda. Yooooo.

And. Sony. SONY.  FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.  Never having played the original game to completion, I need to resist the temptation to get a PS4, despite the growing number of games I want on it. MMMMMMMPH.  Also, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus series game. E3 has seriously been great so far.

In Tolkien news, I recently discovered and am currently crying over the House of Feanor/Finwe in general. Feanor why ):

The Mario Maker thing was GREAT. Bowser Stack shall live on in hilarious infamy.

I watched Nintendo's presentation just now--surprisingly plentiful for 3DS owners!

I'm so glad I watched that! It was amazing, homg.

YESSSSSSS I AM SO GLAD I only have a 3DS and I was a little bummed because I thought that anything I'd want would only be on the WiiU. THANK

I'm not familiar with The Dishonored, but it definitely sounds like Emily is going through a lot of crummy stuff. LOL, the Low Chaos version of the first game sounds interesting. An assassin who doesn't kill anyone. Non-lethal playthroughs of games are nice, yes.

I've always been lukewarm on the idea of an FF7 remake, because I'd rather see a new game in the series, but it is pretty exciting to think of all the gorgeous graphics and the new gaming system it will be on! I just wish they'd have a PC version too.

Not familiar with The House of Feanor, but then again, I'm not too familiar with Tolkien stuff beyond LOTR and The Hobbit....

Oh gosh yes, poor Emily! The first game was already so sad for her-- her mother assassinated, and she didn't even get to go to the funeral because she'd been kidnapped. But yes, it's possible to finish the game without killing a single person, and it's super gratifying, because people mention it and the story rewards you for killing fewer people *___*

Yeeaaah, after all the remakes that everyone has been releasing it'd be nice to get something new for a change, but hey, hype is infectious. And HNNNGH YES, PC version. They said "Coming FIRST to PS4", so hope springs eternal, but who knows.

Yeah, I'm mostly learning through osmosis on Tumblr. As far as I'm aware, The Silmarillion may as well be called Feanor We Love You But Stop or Terrible Things Happening To Elves Who Don't Deserve Them T__T feanor doesn't actually live long enough to share in the COMPLETE MISERY he causes. feanor no. I haven't read it myself, either.

Yikes, how horrible for her! And how awesome that the story rewards you for that. LOL. Most games do exactly the opposite.

Oooh, "coming first" is intriguing indeed!

Gah. It sounds like a massive load of hurt. About all I know of the book is that it concerns the forming of Middle-Earth, Galadriel does something she wasn't supposed to, and somebody loses a finger.

I knooooow it makes me happy T__T On one hand it was kinda crummy that they would advertise the violence part of the game and then punish you for it, but on the other hand I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE MY KINDNESS REWARDED FOR ONCE. It feels so satisfying.

I really, really hope this is a sign that it isn't console-exclusive, because I want to hold out on buying a new console for as long as I can. I WILL RESIST...

IT IS. In some versions Galadriel is a kinslayer (she allegedly has a really good reason, but I don't actually know the details...), but apparently Tolkien liked her so much that he changed his mind and made her totally innocent XD I do know that this happens either way, though. (Melian is basically First Age Gandalf from what I understand. also beware of foul language.) Also I don't know who loses a finger, but someone definitely loses a hand >>

Yes! Although that is a backwards way to advertise it.

Definitely! Consoles are so expensive!

Hmm, interesting. I'm glad he changed her; I really like her in LOTR. And LOL at that comic.

Ahh, a hand. So they lost five fingers. Ouch.
