A look at the best and worst of E3, and the moments of the show that made viewers and fans cringe, cry and curse.
Personally, I thought Microsoft was the worst. Sony have a strong line-up for the coming year, that's for sure, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the Wii U has to offer.
The bad 1. Microsofts e3, Wonderbook(ps3) took up too much time. Wii u specs. Not enough vita games. 2. WatchDogs, Beyond, God Of War ascension. The Last Of Us. Assassins Creed 3, Far cry, Splinter Cell Blacklist Gears Of war 4.
2. WatchDogs, Beyond, God Of War ascension. The Last Of Us. Assassins Creed 3, Far cry, Splinter Cell Blacklist Gears Of war 4. the good
What about Halo 4?
My issue is that I've spent a year looking forward to seeing what the Wii U has to offer. Today was when they were supposed to show me. They didn't.
the ugly...... http://i247.photobucket.com...
The Bad: All things Microsoft were bad: *No huge Gears gameplay but only 10 seconds of CGi *BO2 had a Demo of an "Escort Mission" which is as cliche and boring as it can get *Halo 4 should of been last and more dramatic *Way too much boring Kinect stuff *MS Spent an hour talking about new crap on Xbox Live that people can do on a PC or iphone or whatever for FREE! *Joe Montana wasn't really playing Madden cause he never moves his fingers after the snap. Sony had a few hiccups here and there: * another E3 with no Agent or The Last Guardian * Not enough Vita Games shown * No push to promote Vita as a Phone Ninten-FAIL: *No full and detailed WiiU specs *No great new WiiU Mario Metroid Zelda games *No price for the WiiU The Good: * One year closer to the Xbox 720 E3 * God of War Ascension, Beyond, Last of Us, Halo 4, Gears Judgment * I think the Move Book thing is awesome for Kids and has great potential * E3 being almost over means GamesCon is 60 days away.
I don't know who supply's Microsoft with their piff, but they haven't been the same ever since the release of Kinect. I thought I hated the Wii U's tablet controller more than anything else in the world, but it looks like Sony gets the pedestal for their Wonderbook fiasco.
Does a ps move focused children's game REALLY warrant this much hate?? Yeah, Sony should have focused on other things more. Got it. But Sony are a company that are trying pretty hard to turn a profit and they're hoping this wonder book concept will hit the big time. That's clearly what they hope. They've put a lot of effort into this, even including JK Rowling. And for it to be a big success they need to give it air time and demonstrate the thing. Really, it's a kids game. But if they didn't show it like they did, no one would know about it. And they obviously hoping it will be a big hit. And for a children's game, it was quite an interesting little product I thought. Considering it's not limited to potter crap, it has educational games too. What is with the hate? Sony showed 3 other jaw dropping games. It wasn't like it was wonder book for 90 minutes. It may have felt like it though.
All of that money from the Wonderbook investment and the paycheque sent to that bitch JK Rowling, could've been used more strategically for Sony especially for their newly released handheld, the PSVita. There was more air time for the Wonderbook, than the PSVita. How sad.
Well I agree that vita should have got a lot more air time cos it needed it. That's something Sony messed up on. They should have made it a 2 hour show. I wouldn't have minded wonder book had they shown off the vita as well
They spent 20 minutes on that thing dude. It was a travesty.
So wonderbooks fine but kinect is too far? Love your incredibly biased opinion Shadow Flare...
I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but the hosts for Ubisoft made it so painful to watch that it pretty much tainted most of the games. Sure Rayman Legends looks awesome, but when you're sitting there feeling awkward after a whole lot of talk about 'lady-wood' and weird banter between the two of them, it kind of ruins the impact.
The good: the gaming media was able to accumulate a great deal of money through various articles dealing with E3, creating, perpetuating and analyzing the hype. The bad: there was a boring trade show where nothing of substance happened somewhere in 'murika. The ugly: all of the idiotic consumers who fawn over E3 every goddamn year expecting it to be awesome and feeding this bonanza of bullshit.
Cynical gamer is cynical.
Well, I'm not really impressed with any of the shows that I've seen thus far. I think this is one of the weakest e3's that I've seen in a while. I did like Microsoft's show as good as any of the others but my favorite games presentations DID come from Sony with the Two Souls and The Last of Us games. Those are really going to be something special.
The bad was lack of surprises again. Both Sony and MS did ok but could of done way better. Sony's games in all: Last Of Us, God Of War Ascension, PlayStation All Stars, Beyond: 2 Souls, Wonder Book, Last Guardian, Sly 4 and Agent(hopefully) MS games in all: Halo 4, Gears Of War: Judgment, Forza Horizon, Fable Journey, Steel batallion, Ascend, Ryse and Dark <(not shown at E3) Both have an impressive line up of games.
Microsoft's conference fucking sucked
