With the announcement of the new Fallout, along with cool new games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Ghostwire, it’s safe to say that tons went down during today’s round of E3 conferences from Microsoft, Bethesda and Devolver.
By “tons”, though, we don’t just mean in terms of game announcements – a lot of unexpected hilarity came along with today’s conferences!
Here’s one of them: the guy who cheered and whooped supportively at every other sentence during Bethesda’s round of announcements.
As one might expect, his fervent support was quickly turned into a meme.
The fun doesn’t stop there, either.
Wrong Music Playing During Trailers
If you listened closely to the Rage 2 trailer while it was being shown during the stream, you might’ve noticed that other music was playing along with the trailer’s intended audio.
While it makes for great humour due to the song choice and the impeccable timing during the trailer itself, no one knew why it happened. Fortunately, the cause of the music playing was revealed soon after, in a tweet from musician Shawn Wasabi:
Ikumi Nakamura – The Most Wholesome Person at E3
Clearly, Bethesda’s conference was a gift that just kept on giving, because the internet collectively adopted Ikumi Nakamura – possibly the most genuine, wholesome person at E3 today.
For those unaquainted, Nakamura is the creative director for the upcoming horror game Ghostwire. Check out her presentation here!
With her adorable mannerisms and visible excitement, along with a couple of jokes for good measure, it’s clear to see from her presentation that she loves her work! It’s also just amusing, because her demeanour is a complete 180 from some of the games she’s worked on before:
Plus, if the trailer for Ghostwire is anything to go by, the game looks amazing. We can’t wait to see what the game has to offer!
Keanu Reeves’ Appearance
Bethesda’s conference wasn’t the only interesting one, of course. The highlight of Microsoft’s conference was arguably a special appearance by Keanu Reeves himself.
The actor and the internet’s man of the month, who will be appearing in the newly announced Cyberpunk 2077, was greeted with tons of cheers. One audience member even loudly complimented Keanu, who chuckled and returned the compliment!
Whether you enjoyed the actual announcements, or extra highlights like this, E3 has undeniably kicked off with a great start! We can’t wait to see what more E3 has to show in the convention’s coming days.
