E3 was terrible, I don't blame Greg for being apathetic
Yeah I'm surprised by these takes. I thought most people agreed this is a whatever e3, and then these posts come in surprised at their reactions?


Also why were people complaining about their phantasy star online take? I just got to it and all it was was Tim saying that's a big get and a lot of people will be stoked, and then they moved on.

Still unsure why you would have three people who hate JRPGs review a press conference from the JRPG company. These are the times when Greg's "I want the company to be like IGN/Rooster Teeth" mantra would actually come in handy. Bring on people who actually might give a shit about what's going to be presented.

Overall, I'm just glad E3 is done and I don't have to see the awful thumbnails for their post-show reactions anymore.

This E3 is pretty much widely seen as terrible at worst, okay at best. Kinda funny reaction is pretty much in line with that.

Easy Allies is always excited about everything that it just comes off as fake and annoying. Nintendo could announce a pet rock for $29.99 and they would cream their pants..its off putting.

That's just not true at all. They were hyped for the big moments and kept it jolly during the rest.

The only thing I was taken aback with regarding their coverage was the nintendo reaction. Nintendo clearly had the best E3 showing and plenty of hype games and they were just like "whatever". Especially that botw 2 reaction. Yeah we knew a zelda was coming but a direct sequel is pretty rare for the franchise.

I actually agree. I sub to them because they all seem like great people but theyre really one note a lot of the time.

What? Easy Allies is always critical when its deserving, they come across as jolly or positive but deep dive into difficult topics or like to analysis their collective thoughts in a more meaningful way then simply *that was bad or that was good*.

Yea, for every game they have done impressions on they have done both positive and negative discussion.

I guess some people can't handle actual discussion and just want a quick hot take to agree with.

Anyway, this thread is about Kinda Funny not EZA.

I'll make my way to the EZA thread.

Yes. When I want actual discussions I go to the corny guys who hop up and down and yell like they just won the lottery over announcements that is in no way fake and is no way meant to go viral.

But this take makes sense from someone who thinks an actor being in a video game was hype.


If I wanted the worst take I'd rewatch easy allies reaction to that first devolver digital e3 conference. It was like they were being personally attacked. Talk about not having a sense of humour and not enjoying life. It was embarrassing to watch.

Easy allies is garbage and honestly their fan base is as obnoxious as the hosts are. Constantly acting like they're astro turfing and shilling for them in every thread they can. Yikes.

If you think that's what they are then you haven't watched a lot of their content, only a few reactions.
And the only garbage here is your uninformed shit take of a crew that bring happiness to a lot of people here on Era.

Then go post about them in their community thread. Not sure why I have to constantly see their garbage name in this thread?

This thread is just a dumpster fire of bitching about kinda funny and then people slipping in how much better they like easy allies every once in a while. It comes off as dishonest advertising most of the time.

The irony of people saying no fun allowed or try to have fun sometimes to anybody in this thread when they call out fake hype, a thread which consists of constantly whining about the kinda funny content is very rich.

And I cant stand when Tim does his schtick either. It's so contrived.

I have a lot of fun with kinda funny content. Especially watching party mode. Because it comes off as genuine fun between friends. Sorry I am not into grown men being fake as hell for clicks over trivial shit.

That was like 3 years ago or something. Just because their original Shenmue 3 and FF7 reactions get posted a lot doesn't mean that they act like that all the time lol.

Wait..you think party mode in genuine? It can be funny but half of it is scripted and half of it is fake hype for some corny game they got paid to play

I listen to both KF and EZA and all it is, is two teams with two valid points of view on the conference. EZA was not too hot on this year's E3, with their conversation on leaks and how we knew most things going into it, which is true. I'm a little confused at the people in this thread saying KF are the only ones having not so positive things to say, everywhere you look the word on the streets is that E3 was okay, with a couple cool moments, but nothing compared to previous years.

Yeah idk this thread just had a nonsensical discussion about them not recognizing the significance of PSO2 or whatever (when they did) so not everything that goes on in here makes much sense.

I think there still is a place for E3, but in an age full of crunch, just imagine if E3 was a time period where, sure, folks can try games in the convention centers, but there was no need for high production and conventions full of developers, taking time away from development. Nintendo nailed it with their Directs, Stadia seems to be going in that direction and PlayStation as well to some extent

Greg’s opinion of Stadia seems to be the complete inverse of the majority of the video games press/journalists/whatever. Like most people I’ve seen seem to range from healthy skepticism to outright dismissal but Greg seems to think it’s the future of gaming that that’s a good thing.

To be honest I think there’s so many concerns with Stadia, from the obscene pricing model to their treatment of devs (especially indies), that I can’t take it seriously when someone is welcoming this as a good thing.

FWIW, press is seeing a more open demo of SW behind closed doors and the devs have stated that the game is far more open than the demo appeared. Lots of positive impressions seem to be coming out from the show.
Oh, I'm definitely interested still but there were a lot of better games at e3 imho

But of course, my opinion can and obviously does differ to Greg's.

LOL at Greg hyped for Cyberpunk. What was the last RPG he’s even finished? He’ll play a lot of it until a Division 2 update/exp and it’ll drop off.

Lol @ Stadia being one of Greg's "game of the show" picks. It's the perfect microcosm of Kinda Funny just being so out of touch with gamers in 2019. He's the only person who doesn't even ACKNOWLEDGE the pitfalls of this streaming future. Even regular consumers who are into Stadia/X Cloud being the future admit that there are potential issues, but Greg seems to just be completely blind to it all.

And yes, Greg will never finish Cyberpunk. Prove me wrong, Miller. Avengers literally comes out just under a month later. He'll get that game a week or two before the release date, drop Cyberpunk, and never look back. Especially if that game truly goes in on the Destiny/Division type elements. A few weeks before that Animal Crossing drops, and on March 6th Watch Dogs: Legion comes out. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he plays no more than a handful of hours. The only person I see finishing it is Andy, but they probably won't even bring him on to talk about it once he completes it.

Tell me about it... I’m definitely getting Gods & Monsters and FF7 on top of those as well so I’ve got no idea what I’m gunna do. From August onwards there’s basically like 2/3 games a month that I’m interested in.

It always seems this way at the end of the console cycle when everyone tries to get everything out before the new machines show up.

Did he ever end up finishing Assassin's Creed Odyssey?
Anyone wanna take bets on if Greg actually ever plays Cyberpunk to completion?
So what if he doesn’t finish a game? What point would it make if he didn’t?

I mean, when you listen to his thoughts he is purely talking about HIS experience with it. He is allowed to be excited for it if he tried it and really liked it, along with the fact that he has great internet/no data caps. It will likely be a great product for him

I skipped the Stadia stuff (only because I wanted to get to the games quickly) but their E3 impressions are really good.
Very solid breakdowns of every demo they've had access to.

No! How dare he have his own opinion and not have the same out rage and cynicism about the product as everyone!

SBM is so fucking great. Shame how bad the audio has been for E3. Little effort as possible was given. I quite enjoyed that episode anyway.
But it was very clear that the hosting gigs made the E3 content worse. Im glad they are getting extra revenue but I miss when Greg had more time to play lots of different types of games. Now it’s just what he can fit in it feels like.

lots of people out there in the comments calling for snowbike mike to be hired.

I think he's been fine and good with his involvement for KF but I feel he'd be an uninteresting hire. He's like Greg without an off switch. Which is interesting on the occasion but don't need both on the reg lol

Please no Snowbike. Dude it super cool and fun, but I personally can't stand his schtick. Dude is always "on" at like a 12 when he needs to be down around a 7.
