The big, ‘exciting’ part of E3 is over and Cameron Teague and I are pissed (again). This is why. - PSLS
there was a lot to be upset about but also plenty to still excite gamers out there.
There was plenty to be excited about, but not like it used to be. Now E3 is mostly a load of shooters and casual crap.
I agree. The Last of Us and Watch Dogs stole the show IMO.
So true cant wait for both im intrested in Beyond as well.
is it just me or is no one giving Beyond the recognition it deserved? yes TLOU and GoW was nice but they have already been announced. i was realy impressed by the 3d facial expression technology,yes we have seen it in La noire but i think quantic dream will make good use of it in creating an epic storyline.
Beyond looks great, but for some reason I just didn't get the same feeling watching it as I did watching e.g. Watch dogs. It's one of those games that I might think 'wow, brilliant game' but won't bother buying. Overall it wasn't the best of E3. I think it would be better to actually go there and play the games. The conferences were fairly dull, so I reckon the booth's would compensate for that. Obviously us at home will just have to live with the fact that we wont be playing any of the games any time soon :(
TLoU was the best for me, GOW:A, Beyond and ACIII were awesome as well, MS had H4 at least and Nintendo, didn't do much for me, didn't saw Ubi conf, but people said it was the best show from the whole E3 and Watch Dogs is looking really good, definitely, not the best E3, but I keep what I liked :D @ guys below This is probably the last E3 about the current gen consoles, that's why they're playing safe, new IPs will come out with new HW...
To me, the best parts of the E3 were: The Last of Us Watch Dogs Beyond AC3 and the WORST part was WONDER-FREEGIN'-BORING-NEV ER-ENDING-BOOK
Im pissed off, same REHASH games of 2006 still being remade FPS games nothing NEW. 2012 E3 boring as HELL!!!!! also criterion "MOSTWANTED" look lame.
Yup rehash central. Halo 4, Gears of war prequel, god of war prequel. *Yawn These are all such "safe" boring games to develop and i probably wont buy any. Far much interested in beyond, the last of us and watchdogs.
That's the bad thing about long console generations since no one wants to make a new ip this late in a consoles life. So they make sequel after sequel after sequel since last gens were like that(but shorter). There are exceptions though and those are the games I'm actually excited about(Watch Dog, Last of Us, Beyond, South Park).
I know I'll be a hypocrite and buy them all (okay, not ALL of them), but I'm sick of the same old, same old. I was really hoping for more new IPs. I mean, Last of Us and Watchdogs looked good, but other than that, I didn't seem much new that excited me.
The thing that upset me most was the Kingdom Hearts HD Collection rumor not being true. That just.....eh. At least I haven't seen it confirmed so far? Anyone?
Problem is that the gaming community still wants to look at E3 like the video game superbowl (which it totally isn't anymore, sorry). There's too many events during the year and the internet makes big surprises nigh impossible to keep a secret. But if interviews and videos are what you're after, and, I dunno, GAMES, then E3 is still a very fun event, and I've been soaking it in with interest.
Jack Tretton called it the video game superbowl during the Sony conference.
So? that means it definitely is? DestinySmasher makes a good point and sums it up perfectly
People anticipate E3 much more than any other event. It's one of the most heated too.
The canned internet crap was inexcusable. If you want real questions from the net, there's plenty of people who will give them to you. Why make it canned like that?
It was so blatant, it was just embarrassing
Felt like they were just wasting the time of people who had real questions
so far sony has made bigger reveals at the Spike videogame awards than they did at e3.
It seems like this years E3 was finished before it even formally started. Although, there were a lot of great games showcased so far.
reggie fils-aime let us down after a 936 mill loss and lack luster E3 for the 3rd year in a row. its time for puppet master to go.
I just hate how the industry is slowing down and there is so little to talk about. Nobody is doing anything about it, either. Nintendo had a chance today but had one of the most boring press conferences I've ever seen.
No Hideo Kojima at the Sony Press Conference
Usher bought me a Wonder Book from Nintendo Land.
Did you get girl wood and want to just dance?
YUUP. (That is from Archer, the show that she does a voice-over for) I like Lana.... but that was terrible! Good games, at least. :)
Reggies purple pikmin body is ready with a smartglass of wine for the last of us here.
Nintendo...they are what pissed me of this E3. No thanks, they can keep their next console.
Highlight of the conference was reggie saying his body was ready.
What about when he said "I feel like a purple pikmin"? That seems meme worthy. At least to some extent...^_^;
I still can't believe he said that. The internet's a hell of a drug.
no last guardian showing no agent showing no final fantasy versus showing and that wonderbook took too long.
Nintendo: We still don't know what the Retro project is, we still don't know what Miyamoto's new IP is, we still don't know what Monolith's project is, we still don't know what the online for Wii U is like or what the price/release date for the Wii U are. No Smash Bros, Star Fox, F-Zero or Zelda at all. Also, too much NintendoLand. No big, surprising announcements. Microsoft: Too much Kinect. No new noteworthy IPs whatsoever. 90% of the games they showed were multiplats that can be found on the PS3/PC/WiiU and have no exclusive content. They seem more focused on getting exclusive DLC for Call of Duty than they are on getting full exclusive games for their system. Too many apps/online services that I don't care about. Gears trailer was just CGI - no gameplay. Usher - what the hell? No big, surprising announcements. Sony: Lack of Vita games when it needs them - only 2 were shown. We still haven't seen more of The Last Guardian, we still haven't seen more of Agent, we still haven't seen more Final Fantasy Versus. Wonderbook showing took way too long. Playstation All-Stars seemed like an exact replica of Smash Bros. No big, surprising announcements. Yea, a pretty underwhelming E3 overall IMO. A few noteworthy standouts like The Last of Us, Pikmin 3, Halo 4 and Beyond - but not much to get excited about to be honest. EA was also pretty boring and Ubi had some good moments, though.
Never owned a nintendo console but was really looking fwd to seeing the games, was gonna get one on launch day and then use it as a trade in for ps4 later on, but after that showing no thx
I sorta figured Ms was going to do what they usually do, since they been doing it the past three years now. Show off one of three exclusive they have, than talk about kinect for most of the time, than show off 2nd exclusive , 360 apps, 3rd exclusive, and than end it with mp woopie. Sony I though had the chance to really outshine this year cause people were really hoping for some new news on the Last guardian like release date finally, Agent which hasn't been talked about since it was announced, Versus Square Enix doesn't want to talk about it or show new game-play , and finally the Vita which pretty much got no love instead got 10 mins of Mr Roger show with Wonderboring. Nintendo went way off, it was their chance out of the biggest of the three to out due everyone. They did nothing what so over really. It was games we knew was coming and than of course put out more mario games. Nintendo said nothing new about the Wii U we didn't already know really. A price,hardware specs, date would of been nice to know except for holiday season. E3 overall gets a B- just cause Last Of Us, Beyond, And Watchdogs pretty much made E3 watchable.
My favorite part of the Microsoft conference was the South Park game reveal, complete with Trey and Matt on stage. My least favorite part was Usher. I just walked away from the screen at that point. My favorite part of Sony's conference was the breathtaking ship combat in Assassin's Creed III. My least favorite part was the downright embarrassing Wonderbook presentation. How could it drag on for so long and not even work properly? My favorite part of Nintendo's conference was... I don't know, the whole thing was just so underwhelming. You know it's bad if you're the only one revealing a new console and your conference is still the worst.
When usher entered the stage, i turned off the stream.
Honestly,in my opinion,(even tho the fanboys out there might not agree), this was the worst E3 so far
E3 was SEVERELY disappointing this year. Best thing about it was Watch Dogs. The only other things i was slightly interested in is Pikmin, because i liked the others and maybe Playstation All-stars. EVERYTHING else could have just been said online. When did E3 start catering to the casual audience. For that DOES the casual audience even get NEAR as excited as E3 as the hardcore? Just a terrible showing by all this year. Announcing stuff that everyone knew was already coming out and crappy techs.
The problem is the length of this console gen. Consoles for this gen had max'd out last year (if not earlier). So, when you talk new IPs what can they really bring to the table? Looking at Last of Us I was thinking, "Gee they could've called this Uncharted 4 and I wouldn't have known the difference". Same with Beyond... It is simply the Heavy Rain engine in a new setting with paranormal activity. There was no gameplay in either game that was really innovative and new. (Both games look great though). Halo 4 is probably all that 343 could squeeze out of the 360. In fact I was quite surprised how good it looked but again what was really that new about it? Same with Forza Horizon, same engine, new setting. And Gears Judgement. Fable Journey was really the new game for MS but it was essentially, lets insert PS3's Sorcery into Fable. (Again, the games looked great). As for Wii U... Well, I just don't see how that will sell. WiiMote / Nunchuk was a new type of controller that brought a crowd into gaming that wasn't interested before. To me, the additional tablet is a hard core device not a casual device. It will end up being used for core RTS and RPG games that were traditionally not on consoles because of their extensive menu and keyboard requirements. Also, for a new breed of games where behind the scenes planning and strategy are important. The price point for this to sell is probably $199... But I don't see how Nintendo can build and ship it for less than $299...
I think this E3 was doomed to be underwhelming. With the next gen from Sony and MS coming out in 2013, there must be alot of studios (internal and 3rd party) heads down with those titles in the works, and since the next gen hasn't been announced, they obviously can't talk about the titles. Now Nintendo should have come out with more firepower. There was nothing on the Wii U that sold that system. The Mario games look just like the Wii Mario games and they had rehashed titles that have already been released. Who is going to buy Batman again just to get a new control system? Unfortunately, the Wii U will not have the same draw the Wii had.
Morgan looks luscious in the black and white dress. The outfit leaves the inagination excersizing. Games? Oh.......maybe next year
waaa what a fucking whiner fest. jesus. grow up guys
All the conferences had some low points...that is what pissed me off as a viewer. I also had hope that Nintendo's Wii U would be more powerful. I am probably going to focus on one console next gen. I go with where the most compelling exclusive games reside...so PS4 for me. After getting a glimspe of next gen from the PC showing of Watch Dogs, Star Wars 1313, and Square Enix demo, I am excited to upgrade to PS4.
Wow what is wrong with you folks: The Last of Us God of War: Ascension Beyond Sleeping Dogs Am I the only one??? Heck if TGS delivers only two games.....The Last Guardian and FF vs XIII then I'm good. Oh well. i was satisfied. The above mentioned games should be a benchmark for other devs to pump out another 2 to 3 years of QUALITY work.
People these days are whiny little brats. Come on, you have to be kidding. There were tons of games that overshadowed any sore spots in E3.
Unless you own stock in Ubisoft, Sony was the only one who brought the goods. Literally. The free Playstation Plus games, that is a great deal. I got a Plus subscription the day after their briefing.
Lack of games, specially by MS.
