That’s the show for PC Gamer. Did you like what you saw? Or were you one of the many upset that Epic Game Store is getting many games? My impressions of the show was that it was alright. Nothing stood out once again, but there was plenty that looked nice. There were no surprises which while that’s nice to know what is going to go in a show. It’s also nice to be caught off guard. I’ve put the entire conference down below if you’re interested in seeing the whole thing.
