E3 News & Notes


#21

I’m surprised Microsoft didn’t announce this in their conference.

I prefer hard copies of my games, but I can see how this would be advantageous for some. Assuming they have the hard drive space…

There are some things that I am surprised weren’t showed yesterday as well. Bioshock 2 not being the least of them.

#23

Omg did camelot annouce golden sun 3?!?


#24

Nintendo’s conference just ended and… Well it was what I expected. Nintendo showing a bunch of casual games, a couple new peripherals and saying how awesome they are. They talked about sales and how well they’re doing too.

As for actual games, we got four (wtf four? <___< ) new Mario games (why milk this series so much Ninty? ;~; ), a quick peek at The Conduit and two on-rail shooters and Metroid: Other M. The Metroid game looks fun, but I don’t consider it a megaton announcement cause I’ve never been one of those Metroid hardcores that creams themselves when a new one is announced. I am excited for a new Golden Sun game though.

What I want to know is… Why no new Zelda for Wii? WHY? ;_;
Also, why not show some of the good games coming? Red Steel 2? No More Heroes 2? Little Kings Story? Muramasa?

I thought Nintendo had a great press conference, except for the votality thing, that was weird and seems pointless.

Mario Galaxy 2, :o :slight_smile:
Golden Sun 2 :o :o :o :slight_smile:
New Super Mario Brothers Wii :slight_smile:
Metroid the Other M :o :o :o :o :o… :o

#31

Sony’s new motion controller is awesome. I won’t hesitate to get that when it becomes available.
SLick


#32

Nothing to write home about with the Sony Conference on the whole I think Microsoft owned the show, not even close.

However… Sony finally has done it and now it looks like I might buy a PS3 next year. The exclusive announcement of Square’s FF XIV MMORPG looks very interesting and on PS3 level graphics I hope… That’s going to be awesome.

Wait, I have a better idea. Rai will give me his PS3. :slight_smile:


#33

Quite a nice showing by Sony, I must say. I was stoked to see actual gameplay from Assassins Creed 2! Also great to see other big titles like Uncharted 2 and God of War 3. Nice to see more GT5, but still no release date? Seriously? Come on Polyphony! D:

I enjoyed the trailer for FFXIII and admittedly, shat brix when FFXIV was announced. I really hope it isn’t an MMO though. <__<

MGS: Peacewalker would have been a bigger deal if it hadn’t been spoiled several days ahead of time…

That kart racing game that lets you create your own tracks looks amazingly fun.

A new PS3 exclusive from Rockstar, The Agent. I can’t wait to find out more about this. I can barely believe it only got a brief passing mention. What I wanna know too is, what happened to L.A. Noir?

The motion sensing tech demo looked pretty awesome.


#34

IGN reports it’s an Online game. Personally I can’t wait, I’m looking forward to it more than 13.


#35

Well, it said in the end of the trailer that it was ‘Online’.
I’m clinging to the hope that this doesn’t necessarily mean MMO. If they made these FF MMO’s seperate games, that’d be all good. However, I was massively disappointed years ago when it was revealed that FFXI was an MMO. And naturally, I am disappointed again if the same goes for FFXIV. =(

It just seems like the ‘core’ Final Fantasy games should be single player experiences. Also, I’m a bit curious as to whether all the people that play FFXI and have done so much, gathered so much, achieved so much would just leave it all behind to start over again on XIV. xD

You know, that’s an excellent point.

I gave up on XI early last year just because I felt like I had accomplished all I wanted to in the game, and I did accomplish a lot of the endgame stuff so I was satisfied. I’m looking forward to a new experience!

I did check the large XI forums though and so far the news is being greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm. People are talking about buying 1 or 2 new PS3s to get their hands on this game! The XI community has been incredibly loyal to Square though and now I think pretty much most are ready to move on, to a new Square offering. How much of the XI base will make the migration certainly remains to be seen.

I am quite disappointed that it’s exclusive to PS3 though, I don’t want to buy a new system just for it, but I likely might, who knows lol. I do think it’ll eventually come to 360, given Xbox’s huge online community. How long before that happens after the PS3 launch though who knows. I hope by the time it’s near release next year Microsoft will do a little convincing… :wink:

I have almost no interest in games lately but I will most likely be buying XIII and XIV next year when they launch. Can’t wait.

That’s a hell of an eye you have Slow, to be able to pick out all those games that were shown but not specifically named. xD

True enough. I still feel that the MMO FF’s should not be part of the core series. I think this comment on Kotaku sums up a lot of peoples’ feelings on this:

"WHOA FFXIV?

Already?

Don’t they have like 20 million games already in development?

Oh…F**K ANOTHER ONLINE-INSTALLMENT

Do they really need to put them IN THE MAIN SERIES?

Seriously, you can put EVERYTHING in it’s own spinoff, BUT the type of game that SHOULD have it’s own spinoff"


#40

I certainly agree with that. I never understood why they coupled the two franchises together, other than the obvious… for marketing and riding the coattails of the franchise.

In other news, Rai mentioned you and this thread on the Anime Network frontpage (E3 Story). Everyone go check it out!
