PlayStation State of Play June 2, 2022 Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Some unexpected appearances, but mostly animal pictures.

Today, June 2, 2022, KoopaTV staffers (myself, Heavy Lobster, and Witch Princess) live-reacted to Sony's State of Play. This showcased games coming out for the PlayStation 5, the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation VR2, and in one instance, the PC.

Check out our reactions to our collectively least favourite console manufacturer, along with the embedded ~28-minute production below:

[5:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I'm picking Twitch, just turn off chat)
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't even have milk. I have cold water mixed with apple juice. ...Which is really just diluted apple juice.
[5:59 PM] HeavyLobster: I'm here
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The apple juice is kind of the colour of your, uh... metal?
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This music loop is better than wotever certain other competitors do, I gotta admit.
[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 5...4....3....2....1....
[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 3.24.2023?
[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: R
[6:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Resident Evil 4
[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess this looks better than how it was on the GameCube BACK IN MY DAY.
[6:03 PM] HeavyLobster: Resident Evil 4 already came out. Why not just make another sequel instead of milking 4?
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Four games in development for PlayStation VR2...
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Well, here's a Resident Evil sequel.
[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (8, specifically)
[6:05 PM] HeavyLobster: That's a whole different kind of milking.
[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Well, I don't have milk with me, but it seems like Sony/CAPCOM do.
[6:06 PM] Witch Princess: I'm here
[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hey Witchy! Do you have milk? ...Or an idea of wot's on the screen now?
[6:06 PM] Witch Princess: No, I have oatmeal.
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Retribution, 2022, for PlayStation VR2? I think? Lots of zombies, seems typical. Not sure why you'd want to virtual reality into a pack of zombies, but I guess some people are into that!
[6:07 PM] HeavyLobster: More zombies...
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No Man's Sky is coming to VR2, too. (Read that out loud.)
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the fourth thing is...
[6:08 PM] HeavyLobster: Find someone who loves you like Sony loves pointless remasters.
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...This is Horizon?
[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kamek might like this!
[6:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ("Horizon Call of the Mountain VR"... or "Horizon VR Call of the Mountain" not sure from the logo)
[6:10 PM] HeavyLobster: Sony really loves milking the same shit over and over.
[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hey, Horizon Call of the Mountain is NEW and EXCLUSIVE to VR2.
[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now a PlayStation fan favourite is coming to PC.
[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...wait what
[6:10 PM] Witch Princess: The only one I know is Resident Evil.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why are they advertising PC gaming?
[6:11 PM] Witch Princess: ^
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Spider-Man Remastered coming August 2022 for PC... but why. Is it because no one can find a PlayStation 5 in stores?
[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But they still want people to buy the game?
[6:12 PM] Witch Princess: You would think they would want stuff on, y'know, their console.
[6:12 PM] HeavyLobster: To sell games to everyone who couldn't get a PS5 because scalpers.
[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I should take screenshots of this cat running around the sci-fi environment.
[6:12 PM] Witch Princess: Is this a cat simulator?
[6:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The cat simulator part is "not actual gameplay"

I don't know what Stray is about, but it was announced back in 2020.
(Back then, they said it'd release 2021.)


[6:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, it's named "Stray"; the logo made me think it's called "Tray"
[6:13 PM] Witch Princess: Lol
[6:13 PM] HeavyLobster: Cat game only new thing so far.
[6:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If this next thing is new I don't want anything to do with it. More zombies?
[6:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wot is this, 2015?
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Called Callisto Protocol.
[6:15 PM] HeavyLobster: Zombies are a good metaphor for Western AAA devs.
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They said in the year 2040?
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So I guess this game is 2040 and Callisto Protocol is 2015.
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring underanimated shooting and wall-jumping in an arena on skates with guns.
[6:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Rollerdrome" on August 14 for PS4 (or PS5). That's new!
[6:17 PM] HeavyLobster: Does the PS5 have actual exclusives?
[6:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: First (only?) anime game.
[6:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hold R2 to hold hands.
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, the hands are relevant because the guy has a shiny magic arm.
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Eternights" coming early 2023 by Studio Sai.
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Action games and dating sims collide" to describe Eternight.
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BACK TO CAPCOM?
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HEAVY HITTER?
[6:19 PM] HeavyLobster: Dating sims are ew.
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: STREET FIGHTER SIX ALREADY?
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought they'd reveal that at its own separate thing!
[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ryu hasn't shaved recently.

Ryu was clean-shaven in Street Fighter V and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate...
Anyway, CAPCOM promised more Street Fighter VI (or is it 6?) news in SUMMER 2022, and summer hasn't started yet.


[6:20 PM] Witch Princess: Hi Chun-Li
[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, it really is Street Fighter VI!
[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I didn't expect that one bit.
[6:22 PM] HeavyLobster: That's something.
[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Mark your calendars, it comes out on PS4 and PS5 on 2023."
[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where on my calendar am I supposed to mark that?
[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like... calendars have one page per month.
[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So which page do I go?
[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MOO
[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WAIT GO BACK I WANNA SCREENSHOT THE COW

CUTIE!! MOO!


[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...THE TRAILER SCREENSHOTTED ITSELF
[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (but not a cow)
[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cow in a journal.
[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: VEEERY briefly.

Would you like to share those songs with us listening at home? Please?


[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Season A Letter to the Future"
[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mooving on to Final Fantasy XVI (16)...
[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Where they're promising media interviews in the near future for actual information.
[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But we also get a trailer now.
[6:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Does this also count as anime game?
[6:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 'cause it looks like they wanna do their best to look like a western film.
[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...possibly wrote that too soon.
[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Since they got a bunch of these summons doing cool special effects now.
[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like Ifrit and Bahamut.
[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PHOENIX TITAN GARODA SHIVA
[6:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WAIT THE GAME IS ABOUT THE SUMMONS?
[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And this human guy.
[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Summer 2023.
[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "And that's a wrap."
[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's it?
[6:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well I need to go back and get that cow photo.

Bye, cow... Oh, um, and you all.


[6:29 PM] HeavyLobster: Surprising lack of gay stuff
[6:29 PM] HeavyLobster: Not that I mind
[6:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, we got the rest of Pride Month for that.
[6:30 PM] Witch Princess: I was probably the most interested in Street Fighter and the Season game, that's it.
[6:31 PM] HeavyLobster: I still don't care about Sony.
[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm still stunned that Street Fighter VI is here! ...And the cat was cute in Stray.
[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Season isn't actually about the cow even if my screenshots are.
[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Anyway I'm sure we'll find out soon how many of those were EXCLUSIVE or not.
[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Street Fighter VI obviously won't be!)
[6:34 PM] Witch Princess: None of them will be.
[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think the VR2-exclusive Horizon game might be by technical necessity!
[6:35 PM] Witch Princess: Yeah, I was wonderin' about the VR2 stuff.
[6:36 PM] Witch Princess: Not because I'm gonna buy anything though.
[6:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kamek would probably be into it.
[6:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If he's not sucked into the ether(eum) by now.



The KoopaTV staff isn't entirely sure what the next reaction log of June 2022 will be, but they know that Xbox gets one, so...Soon! What did YOU think of the State of Play?


The last time that KoopaTV live-reacted to a PlayStation event was the PlayStation 5 Showcase in September 2020.
Next up in 2022's reaction logs was the Devolver Direct 2022.

  1. I think this was a decent State of Play which isn't really saying much since the majority of them tended to be mediocre or worse. First, I'm interested in Stray as it has been in development since 2015 and is finally releasing around a month from now. Another one I'm looking forward to is Tunic. I've heard many great things about it with many comparing it to classic 2D Zelda games but harder. I wonder if it will eventually come to Switch as well. Lastly, Spider-Man coming to PC with Miles Morales following in the fall isn't too surprising, but it just makes consoles becoming less relevant if once console exclusives are going to eventually be on PC. Will Nintendo one day follow suit?

    1. I've been wonderin' where you've been!

      I've been hearing from a few people around me for many years that Nintendo will be putting their games on PC. Hasn't happened yet.
      Regarding Spider-Man, I think it's definitely a sign of weakness.
