E3 2012 Discussion

13 posts in this topic

I figured I'd start up a thread for discussing E3 related topics.

---------------------------

Personally, I think the best trailer goes to Watch Dogs. It could end up being a generic stealth game, but the trailer definitely made me interested.

Metro's trailer was pretty nice as well, but live action trailers never tell much about a game. I'm looking forward to the full game. I've been wanting to play Metro 2033 for a while, but it's pretty much guaranteed that I'm not going to buy it.

Beyond has the potential to be great, so I hope they don't squander the opportunity there. Indigo Prophecy is fairly enjoyable, and I've heard Heavy Rain is excellent, so this will probably end up being good as well.

Metal Gear Rising looks like it could go either way. The trailer makes everything look so chaotic that it could end up just being a big mess. Apparently Platinum Games is developing it, so I have hope for it.

Microsoft's conference was, once again, a complete joke. The only big games that were shown are sequels to extremely popular franchises, and all of them had already been announced before. The rest of the show was taken up by features completely unrelated to gaming, and it felt like all of them were already announced last E3. The smartphone/tablet integration could be nice, but I own neither, so I'm not all that interested.

Sony's conference was slightly better, as they showed off a few games that look good. I don't own a PS3 or Vita, so I don't have much to say about any of the features announced.

I will be the one to say: I've owned an Xbox for 3 years, and I'm buying a PS3 very soon. I'm glad for it as well. Microsoft had a joke of a conference again this year, and Sony showed off some kick-balloon games that I can't wait for. The Last of Us looks like the most amazing survival game I've ever seen!

Oh, man. I totally forgot about E3. I can't remember if it was last year or two years ago that it was ALL over YouTube, so I'm assuming it's pretty weak so far. Honestly, the only things I'm looking forward to hearing about are Dawnguard, and Elder Scrolls MMO.

E3 was fail in general Nintendo was the worst because they had failed to deliver even when everyone had failed.

Pikmin 3 made my day. Really can't wait for it to come out for the Pikmin games are some of my favorite ones out there. This E3 in general though didn't really have many surprises to show us in my opinion from what I saw. Though some things were awesome they were idealistic things we already knew about so the wow factor can be less for some. I did enjoy what I wanted to see though so I am personally glad.

MG Rising looks cool.

I think it's cool that they've made stealth (look like) a major part of this iteration of Metal Gear.

Of course I'm not completely against a full on Action game.

Honestly I've very rarely cared about conference. In my experience an amazing game can have a horrible show case and an even worse conference. Just like ratings should only be guideline IMHO I barely let my opinion be swayed. ( I've actually hated a lot of conferences of some of my most favorite games lol)

One conference that I think will hurt a company though. Was the WII U. It made the Wii U look pitful. Only two Nintendo games and a bunch of games that came out this year (with my favorite being Mass Effect 3 haha) Things are not looking up for the already slippery slope of Nintendo.

Everyone's talking about Pikmin 3, but I'm NOT buying a Wii U for a game that should have been on the Wii to begin with.
