KoopaTV's Electronic Arts E3 2018 Conference Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The first E3 press conference of 2018!

This is it. The start of E3 2018! We are starting with what is historically the worst company to get an E3 conference, Electronic Arts. Will the company that is solely responsible for making E3 a multi-calendar-week affair continue their terribleness, or will they pleasantly surprise us?

(Take a wild guess before you read the log. You'll probably be right.) 

We're joined by myself, RawkHawk2010, and Kamek in our first reaction log of E3! (And also the first E3 that we're conducting via Discord.)

Also, check out our super handy-and-dandy KoopaTV E3 Weeks 2018 Schedule here!

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're making a Battlefield Battle Royale, apparently.

[2:06 PM] Kamek: Like pubg?

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I dunno, they didn't specify.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now they're talking about Battlefield V, which "even features music."

[2:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Trailer cut off dude's laughter.

[2:07 PM] Kamek: Wait. Do They have music if you talk too long?

[2:07 PM] Kamek: Wait

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, the trailer has music in it.

[2:07 PM] Kamek: Do we have a link

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is apparently a monumental thing.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/twitch

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Nordlys War Story" "Exclusive first look in the Xbox E3 Briefing tomorrow"

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now it's FIFA 19.

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Be on the lookout for Alex Hunter.

[2:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was NOT a good segue.

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They have Ronaldo.

[2:09 PM] Kamek: Soccer

[2:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: This has a weirdly depressing tone for a FIFA.

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S NOT ALEX HUNTER

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT'S A WHITE GUY

[2:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: NO

[2:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: KENDRICK LAMAR

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Champions Rise"

[2:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: (I actually have no idea who that is but it might as well be)

[2:10 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: :smiley_indifferent:

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh I thought it was Kendrick Lamar.

[2:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: It may still be.

[2:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Probably more likely than not.

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They have a trophy on the actual stage.

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHH

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SHE MENTIONED ALEX HUNTER

[2:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Were we expecting for him to be back?

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, but I was hoping.

[2:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: "the heart and soul of FIFA is gameplay"

[2:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: they actually had to clarify that

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There'll be a (new?) story mode with Alex Hunter, for a third time.

[2:12 PM] Kamek: Why does Alex hunter matter?

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alex Hunter is the only part of FIFA that matters!

[2:12 PM] Kamek: .... Why?

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "And that's our FIFA 19 neeeews. I'd like to take a minute to pause and reflect."

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Gregory Hunter adopted Alex Hunter and raised him alongside Benjamin

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: So it was like the Blind Side

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Just with soccer and not football.

[2:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh hey they mentioned Nintendo Switch getting the World Cup DLC.

[2:13 PM] Kamek: Ooo

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not buying it.

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well you're not buying DLC without the game, anyway.

[2:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: HOOLIGANISM

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We want to invite everyone to join the celebration."

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: whoa

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's a FREE TRIAL of FIFA 18... on Xbox One, PS4, and EA Origin.

EA Play E3 2018 FIFA FIFA18 free trial Xbox One PlayStation 4 Origins
This is far from the first time EA snubs Nintendo over FIFA.
And not the first time it happened as relating to FIFA 18 itself.

[2:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: So no Switch.

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhhh that isn't everyone what about Nintendo Switch?

[2:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: They don't want bad Switch online to make FIFA look bad.

[2:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: I saw Alex Hunter

[2:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: He was there in a chokehold.

[2:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They literally said "invite everyone" though... ;-;

[2:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: He was literally being attacked from behind.

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts.

[2:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think we hate this guy right?

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, yeah.

[2:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: K needed to make sure

[2:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fuck Andrew Wilson

[2:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: I saw Plants

[2:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this Kendrick Lamar too?

[2:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Good chance

[2:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Probably not.

[2:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Although this sounds more understandable

[2:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not every bad rap background music can be Kendrick Lamar!

[2:19 PM] Kamek: How much is origin?

[2:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Well, they didn't say.

[2:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Name one modern big rapper not named Kendrick Lamar they'd actually invite

[2:20 PM] Kamek: Anthem looks great in the trailer

[2:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: I have no idea what this is at all.

[2:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Hi...it's...it's really good to see you."

[2:27 PM] Kamek: That was depressing

[2:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: With that string

[2:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...no, my comparison is better.

[2:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: Depends on how bad the whole game is.

[2:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Play the game with co-op with yourself."

[2:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well Ice  Climber is terrible.

[2:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: Holding two controllers then?

[2:46 PM] Kamek: ....

[2:46 PM] Kamek: that's an odd typo to make

[2:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Random red white and blue lights.

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Michael Martinez and Nathanias.

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who?

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: First look at brand-new mobile game.

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Destroy the opponent's base to win."

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GIANT NUCLEAR MISSILE AT THE CENTRE OF THE MAP

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Play Soviet Missile Run for a much better missile-based game)

[2:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ink Control?

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Competitive mobile gaming phenomenon, Nick at Night!"

[2:48 PM] Kamek: Isn't nick at nite copyrighted?

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's competitive mobile gaming to be a phenomenon at?

[2:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well it's not nighttime.

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "nickatnyte"

[2:48 PM] Kamek: Oh

[2:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Probably at a disadvantage.

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "iNcontroL"

[2:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They have a "PRE-ALPHA" watermark.

[2:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: InKontrol would be a good Splatoon name.

[2:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Their characters look like they're Madden footballers.

[2:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or INKontrol*

[2:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With football jerseys.

[2:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is stupid.

[2:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: We can barely see anything.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not paying attention to the game.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I can't, even if I wanted to.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm just disgusted by the guy's thumbs.

[2:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Worst part of E3 thus far I think.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What's this game called?

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Attention is pulled more towards hands than game.

[2:51 PM] Kamek: Yeah this isn't exciting

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's bad.

[2:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...did they say the name?

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well now we can see.

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: May not have a name.

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's pre-alpha.

[2:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well what the hell do I save the file name as?

[2:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I took a screenshot of the dude's thumbs.

[2:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: "thumbs"

[2:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: crappy-mobile-game-ea-play-2018


Electronic Arts EA Play E3 2018 Command & Conquer Rivals gameplay mobile game thumbs
Why did they think this was a good idea?

[2:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: or that

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't remember companies devoting this much time to a mobile game during a presentation.

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this a first?

[2:53 PM] Kamek: My boss is talking to his discord

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's been 7 minutes.

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: We need a sleep emoji.

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well

[2:53 PM] Kamek: About how disappointed he is

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: :koopa_shell:

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: But that makes it look like someone's leaving

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Worldwide reveal of Command  & Conquer: Rivals"

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: We need something for something putting us the fuck to sleep

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Guess I gotta change the file name.

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Boredom

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Giant enemy crab?

[2:54 PM] Kamek: Ooo

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think this is a trailer for what we just saw.

[2:54 PM] Kamek: It's a mobile game ad

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I see mobile game ads on Fox News.

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Mobile Strike"

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Download it on the app store"

[2:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: The characters are using smartphones in-game to play.

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why do they think the octogenarians watching Fox News would want some dumb free-to-play mobile game?

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They want to buy pillows!

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (And they'll need them, watching this conference.)

[2:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh yeah Mike Lindell never responded to my tweet asking if he likes pillow fights.

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We are always trying to learn, and listen, and strive to be better." - CEO Andrew Wilson returning

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Choice" "What devices you play on" unless you have a Nintendo Switch and want to be part of the "everyone" they said could play the FIFA 18 free trial.

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Most importantly, the games are fun."

We won't get that from a conference today!

[2:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, Unravel Two was the most promising thing today.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wasn't there a recent year where we thought EA had the best conference all the way til Nintendo?

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like it was actually kinda good?

[2:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Naah.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: There was something surprising that was.

[2:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "representation and equality are not something we strive for, but are the standard."

[2:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: He For She

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're talking about anti-bullying, because we keep bullying EA for being a sucky company.

[2:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think Emma Watson is the leader of that.

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, they're showing Anthem now for last.

[2:58 PM] Kamek: Looks pretty

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not sure I know what Anthem is unless it's the game where someone was flying through a valley in a mech.

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Walls.

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh yeah

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was right!

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's someone flying through a valley in a mech!

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or canyon.

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Same word.

[2:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So is this in-game footage?

[3:00 PM] Kamek: I mean that's not going to happen in game

[3:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Surely not

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, so what's the point?

[3:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Most games do this

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, they're seizure-flashing in-game footage.

[3:00 PM] Kamek: Hype

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "HOW COOL IS THAT TRAILEEEEER?!" - Andrea Rene

[3:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fake Hype, or Fake News as we now call it

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She's shrill.

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We're ALL BioWare fans."

[3:01 PM] Kamek: Aw

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, I thought the conference was going to end at the hour.

[3:01 PM] Kamek: She's cute

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: So she looks like Kat Timpf but is internally the opposite?

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But no, they're doing a "DEEP DIVE" into Anthem.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She looks nothing like Kat Timpf.

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: She has glasses.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But not ridiculous ones.

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We have the best fans." - Casey Hudson, general manager of BioWare

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I know everyone says they have the best fans (even we say that at KoopaTV), but I'm pretty sure BioWare objectively does not have the best fans.

[3:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: So are they gonna do a thing where they play a game and act like the conference isn't * really * over but it totally is

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, like what Ubisoft did with Assassin's Creed last year(?).

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: yes

[3:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Our world, my story."

[3:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "This is a living shared world." Like weather and time.

[3:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So isn't this just an MMORPG?

[3:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But there's a single-player story.

"We can add story for years to come."

[3:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Okay, so they designed the game so you can put more DLC into it.

[3:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She has dinosaur arms.

[3:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[3:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where they're all stubby and close to her chest.

[3:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Definitely mech flying over a valley.

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Reminds me of those dolls/skells from Xenoblade Chronicles X

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not that I know anything about that

[3:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're talking about how much work BioWare has to do to make a new IP.

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Non-sarcasm

[3:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is definitely filler.

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Alright fuck this it's over

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Thoughts?

[3:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Imagine if they asked every developer on the stage how much work they did to make a new game.

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not sure EA was even trying for this.

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean, before you can tell they were being try-hard in their failure.

[3:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: I liked when they had the dudes up there with the belt.

[3:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was exciting.

[3:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: And that was literally it.

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The dudes up there with the belt didn't even DO anything.

[3:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: So it wasn't completely awful.

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like, why were they there at all?

[3:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's not enough to move it up a letter though.

[3:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They were talking about an already-released game!

[3:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: F Minus.

[3:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Anti-bullying? You bullying my ass with this shitty conference." - Twitterer

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're taking questions.

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From Twitter.

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...They're asking a question from June 1.

[3:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LOL

[3:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Another June 1 question.

[3:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can purchase a cosmetic and vanity item, no lootboxes or paying to win.

[3:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Complete from the get-go."

[3:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: All of these questions are from June 1, so you know this is all pre-scripted.

[3:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I know you all are on the edges of your seats." - Andrea Rene

[3:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I am firmly at the very back of my chair.

[3:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.koopatv.org/2017/06/watchin-E3-in-our-beautiful-chairs.html

[3:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Do we all have the same chairs since last year?

[3:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: yes

[3:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: In the same condition except the buttons on the maintenance man shirt popped off and it doesn't stay firmly attached.

[3:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Guns

[3:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Boring ones

[3:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: Characters talking or people?

[3:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: We ask this every E3.

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not even paying attention to this to be honest.

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's in-game.

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They have captions.

[3:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If it's captioned it's obviously in-game.

[3:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: COMBO grenade.

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: As soon as your character hits the ground, the gameplay becomes ridiculously boring.

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's cool as long as you're in the air...?

[3:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Player: What the hell was that?

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Does that represent your own character?

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Named Player?

[3:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: No fall damage.

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is that a Metroid enemy?

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...oh.

Anthem EA E3 2018 conference Electronic Arts BioWare Metroid looking enemy end of demo
Queen Metroid from Metroid II, maybe?

[3:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: That looked like Scalebound.

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...It cut to the logo.

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "HOW COOL IS THAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?" - Shrill Andrea Rene

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I'm sure the question on everyone's mind... when do we get to plaaaaaay?"

February 22, 2019

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHEN IS THIS OVER?

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Round of applause to all the developers.

[3:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Some of what you saw today you have to wait to play."

[3:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Command & Conquer: Rivals is out today, too.

[3:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Is anybody ready to come home and download anything? ...No?"

[3:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is all shown games coming out the day of the conference gonna become an industry standard?

[3:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're having a FIFA 18 live tournament, which is EA's answer to the Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Switch system tournament.

[3:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Are we watching that?

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...the FIFA tournament.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Obviously we'll watch the Smash one when it happens.

[3:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe five minutes of a FIFA tournament

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, Twitch just cut out.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nevermind.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S IT.

[3:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SEE Y'ALL TOMORROW FOR MORE E3 COVERAGE.


(And hopefully it won't be dreadful.)

[3:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Everyone in the Twitch chat giving it an F.

[3:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: What do y'all give it.

[3:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I know we like to be contrarian, but...

[3:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I fully agree with the consensus!

[3:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Kamek ?

[3:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't think Kamek is coming back.

[3:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't blame him.



Hopefully YOU come back tomorrow, since much better companies with a track record of not being flat-out terrible in their conferences will be presenting! Do you have a contrarian opinion to anything KoopaTV said in the log, or do you agree with KoopaTV's assessment of EA's E3 2018? Comment away!


Don't be surprised that KoopaTV dislikes EA's conferences. Just check out the Electronic Arts E3 2017 conference live reactions!
Next conference: Microsoft!

  1. The best title showcased was Unravel 2. The main characters are red and blue and would correspond to the neon red and neon blue joy cons, yet the game will not be coming to the Switch which is a shame. Everything else was pretty dreadful or filler. This has to be one of the worst presentations in a while, but that should not be surprising since this EA we are dealing with.

    1. I totally agree on Unravel 2, though unlike with Dragon Ball FighterZ, I didn't connect the colour-coordination with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.

      Based on how EA actually wasn't dead-last in 2017, there are scenarios where there could be worse presentations than this one. Stay tuned?
