The same goes for my Super NES. That thing still works great after all these years. Nostalgia FTW!

Imagine how funny it would be if he was told from every retailer “We heard who you are and what you did at E3 and you’re not getting one now.” The expression would be priceless. :smiley:

That would be epic!

It has been about a week so I will finally say my thoughts on E3

1.Kinect looks dumb, it looked cooler last year
2.I want a 3DS
3.I want Skyward Sword.

That is all that needs to be said about E3


#138

A couple more points associated with E3:

  1. Reggie Fils-Aime told IndustryGamer that the 3DS will not be out any later than March 31 2011…so we’re looking at a Spring 2011 release here. Price is still silent.

  2. The Conduit 2 will out by holiday 2010.

  3. Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Miniland Mayhem (DS) out by holiday 2010

Since it has become a bit of a tradition of mine and because I am always excited for E3, here it is again! That’s right it’s that time of the year again and E3 is almost upon us. From June 5th to 7th will be the 2012 E3 with showings of what is to come (hopefully…) from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo as well as a number of developers.
As of now the schedule looks to be:

Sony - 6:00 PM PST

I do hope that we get to see some nice things this year instead of more motion controls and casual stuff (looking at you Microsoft <__< ).

Stay tuned here for more news and information as the show gets closer!

I don’t think we’ll see much at E3. Probably some games, more stuff about the Wii-U, and maybe, a slim chance Sony or M$ will reveal their new console, but from what I’ve heard, they aren’t planning on it.


#141

Games is what I’d want to see most. New stuff and more info from upcoming games. GTA V info would be nice, but Rockstar is said to not be present at this E3 sadly. They kinda march to their own beat anyways when it comes to releasing information about games.
I’m somewhat excited about new consoles, but I’d actually rather see the current gen survive a while longer. It’s still going pretty strong and I’m getting a ton of use out of my 360 and PS3.


#142

What I expect and look forward to:

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
The Last of Us
More Wii U information

What I don’t expect but would love to see:

New 3DS model

Full Pipedream Mode:

TimeSplitters 4
Left 4 Dead 3 (available on PS3 with PC cross-platform play)

No mention of the Kinect/Move


#143

I’ll be doing my part as usual by taking extensive notes from all the press conferences and the show floor and post them here.

Is this just a cheap copy of Super Smash Bros? Do you know if you fight the other 3 players as well as the larger enemies in the background?

From what I’ve seen of it so far, i’ts just a copy of Super Smash Brothers.

TimeSplitters 4
Left 4 Dead 3 (available on PS3 with PC cross-platform play)

This would be nice, but Left 4 Dead is made by Valve, and if you haven’t ever noticed, Valve doesn’t know how to count to three.

[spoiler]
Left 4 Dead 2
Half Life 2
Half Life 2 episode 2
Portal 2
Team Fortress 2
And DotA2 is coming out [strike]soon[/strike] eventually

Valve never goes any higher.[/spoiler]
I would love to be proven wrong on this point, but so far it’s never happened.

Yeah, hence full pipedream mode. :stuck_out_tongue: I should also include HL Episode 3 in there as well.

I’m kind of curious about that… Will they actually make a Half Life 2: episode 3, or will they just go right to Half Life 3. I mean, the whole point was to have episodes every few months…

But that didn’t happen.


#148

I’m really hoping for more news on some good Vita games. I’m really excited for Gravity Rush coming out next month, but I’d like more than one game to look forward to for it. D:

Nintendo is having a Pre-E3 presentation about the “concept behind” the Wii U today at 3 PM PDT/6 PM EDT. It’ll be streamed http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo_direct in ~41 minutes.

Besides hearing more details on the Wii U (release date, software line-up), the only other thing I’m looking forward to at E3 is a release date for the Ratchet and Clank HD collection.

Words can’t possibly express how much I want this game. Probably the best thing to come out of E3 so far.
