Sony's E3 Showcase Was Disjointed, But Was It What Gamers Wanted?

That all changed at Sony's E3 2018 press conference this evening, where Ghost of Tsushima got its gameplay reveal.

It's been a little over half a year since Ghost of Tsushima was first revealed, and since then, we've seen very little of it.

Unlike some of the less faithful Spider-Man games, you'll have to attach your webs to actual buildings and can't magically swing from the sky. Our main character Jin went on something of a rescue mission, riding his horse across picturesque fields as the Mongols encroach on feudal Japan. Ghost of Tsushima will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive; check out its website for further details. While it's unlikely that we'll see a PS4 price cut, we should see a host of games that will be out soon and others that will release in the years to come.

Squanch Games, co-founded by Rick and Morty's Justin Roiland, showed off a quick trailer for Trover Saves the Universe, a third-person platformer starring a purple dude with two faces where his eyes should be.

Most notable from the trailer was the breath-taking set pieces that framed the combat, with a staged, nail-biting battle underneath a shedding blossom tree drenched in a warm sunset light rounding off the trailer from Sony's conference.

As Spider-Man progressed through the Raft, he ran into a full rogues gallery of classic villains, including Scorpion, Rhino and Vulture.

- A new game called "Control" looks like it gives you super powers - and it's made by the same studio behind "Max Payne" and "Quantum Break", so expect lots of beautiful-looking, heart-pounding action.

That doesn't mean that these games don't look excellent, though.

Gameplay of the new fighting system was debuted during the trailer that showed savage takedowns and katana fights that got fans desperate for more.
