Usage of light and shadow are outstanding.

E3 of this year ran high!!
Massive volume of music!!

E3 have a tendency of sports games,
RPG games etc. so on based on a year.

This year, FPS war games were trend!!
A lot of splatter scenes!!
Blood spread everywhere.
Shooting a lot, killing a lot.

The game developer seems get used to
“kill” the target.
Therefore, I felt “how to kill” became a focus
of developing game.

For that reason, target become
zombie and alien…
These targets’ savage attack and
human counterattacks…
It became savage contents and
you never know.

Mmm…
It is the player who choose the game to play.
As a game creator, it is little sad!

Majority of the games look like a same game.
There were little of original games.
I felt a sense of crisis with above part.

I’m going to E3 show tomorrow again
and check out more games!

See ya.
