Sony wrapped up day one of E3 2014 with a gargantuan press conference which stretched the limits of both technology and human patience.  But if you happened to miss it, fear not, because Trailerpalooza is here to show you everything important.  And by important, we mean games.  So sit back and relax.  This one’s gonna take awhile.

For the second year in a row, Sony opened their press conference with Bungie’s Destiny.  But this time, there was no live demo.  Instead, we were treated to a new trailer filled with almost entirely new footage, including a very good look at a female Guardian sans helmet.  Take a look.

Next up was a new gameplay demonstration from Ready at Dawn’s The Order 1886.  Although it’s less a gameplay demo, and more an interactive cinematic.  You’ll see what I mean.

And now for something completely different, the launch trailer for Entwined.

Suckerpunch then made the surprise announcement that they’ll be releasing a stand alone DLC this summer, Infamous: First Light.  You won’t even need Second Son to play it.

Next up was a live four person demo of Little Big Planet 3, which looked too adorable for words.

Going to the complete opposite end of the gaming spectrum was the unveiling of From Software’s Bloodborne.

From there, we went to the Himalayas for a brand new gameplay demo of Far Cry 4.

And then it was time for one of the most disturbingly hilarious trailers you’ll ever see.  This is Dead Island 2.

Speaking of hilarious, here’s the new trailer for Magicka 2.

Then it was time for the required indie game montage.  I think Not A Hero looks cool as hell.  But then again, I’m old as hell.

Continuing the creepy horror vibe of the night, Sony then unveiled Let It Die.

In another abrupt tonal shift, Sony then unveiled Abzu, the new game from the artist and composer of Journey.

Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games then took the stage to show not one, but two new trailers for his ambitious No Man’s Sky.

Sony then debuted the first gameplay footage from Mortal Kombat X.

Then it was time to show off what The Last of Us looks like remastered on PS4.  Be warned that this trailer contains major spoilers, and is majorly depressing.

Up next was an extended cinematic look at Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  Hey, remember when Snake wasn’t totally batcrap crazy?  I do.

Sony then took us back to San Andreas, for a look at Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4.  Sony also announced that gamers on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to import their GTA Online characters into the PS4 version.  Pretty sweet, huh?

Hey, anyone in the mood to see the Batmobile tear ass around Gotham?  Of course you are.  Here’s Sony’s gameplay demo of Arkham Knight, featuring the coolest car ever.

Finally, Sony showed off the trailer everyone was waiting to see.  Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

If you want to see the entire press conference, which features riveting coverage of topics like peripherals, and a guy who talks emphatically with his hands, you can watch the whole thing below.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
