I’m not there, no. Still in Austin, working hard on a very cool project, but keeping my eyes and ears open to the noise in LA.
We got together in the theater room yesterday with a popcorn machine and watched The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild revealed to the world. It was great fun, when YouTube cooperated. This could be the Zelda game I’ve always wanted.
Sunday evening I curled up on the couch with my macbook and the Bethesda conference. After the reveal of Prey and dear friend Harvey Smith showing off more Dishonored 2, I was quickly off to Amazon for some preorders. My current favorite game, Fallout 4, got some exciting new cool stuff too! I can’t wait to build my own vault! With all this love, who’s gonna have time to play Skyrim yet again? Who am I kidding, I’ll find time.
Horizon: Zero Dawn looks fan-freaking-tastic, but man that name just means nothing to me. Someone on a forum said “sounds like something a video game name generator would spit out” — I totally agree.
Lots more amazing stuff being shown. It’s a great time to love video games.
Lastly, let me mention some music I’ve been listening to:
Ariana Grande – Dangerous Woman — My toddler, when exposed to random music video selections on YouTube, responded well to Ariana Grande’s Focus video (ahem, um, who wouldn’t?) which got me listening to her more as pop music production research. There are some legit good tracks on here like Let Me Love You.
