The E3 Media and Business Summit was a far cry from the circus that was E3 2006. Even though it wasn't a perfect event, we think that the downsized event accomplished one goal particularly well: It let the games do the talking.
KZ2 #19. I think Next-Gen is one of the few totally legitimate sites that get linked to on here but I'd have to rank that game a bit higher although they do mention the disappointment of KZ 1. No mention of Home...people seem to have lost their excitement for it now that the PS3 finally has some good games in the pipeline.
Wow, if it wasn't for Turok, KILLZONE 2 would have been DEAD LAST !! KILLZONE 2 ranked *LOWER* than Echochrome & the Wii Fit ??? Whew, even I have to admit that is just SAD. Bioshock & Mass Effect should have been higher & Assassan's Creed should have been much higher - but they will be once all these games are out & reviewed. Hope that MGS4 isn't anything like MGS2 for you PS3 lovers ... That's where they lost me, & MGS3 just didn't do anything 4 me either, except the graphics were very good on that gen. Sorry, between the 9 hours of CG & the introduction of Raiden & the lack of reasonable gameplay mechanics, I lost it for Metal Gear a long time ago. Raiden blows .... How old is Snake now anyway ? Looks like he could use a HOVAROUND. DAMMIT RAIDEN !! WOULD YOU PLEASE PUT ON SOME PANTS !!
I think they left out Home because it's not really a game. It's more of a service.
At Achievement unlocked...I needed a laugh this morning. Needs a hoveround! HaHa! Bubble for you man.
I didn't know Strangehold was very anticipated. It hardly gets any buzz or even break the 250 degrees level around here.
but that list was kool
While Echochrome's gameplay looks fun (its one of the few games I like for the PS3) it shouldn't be near this list; this game is most definetly possible on the PS2 and xbox. I agree KZ2 should be a little high, but Im glad they gave Halo 3 the props it deserves; everything Ive heard(1up, gamespot, ign, gamespy, ect.) tells me that the graphics are really nice. Also, I don't think Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction should be on this list, but thats not to say it isn't "next-gen". I would replace it with Goddess of W....I mean Hevenly Sword...another of those few PS3 games I want. Turok looks kind of "meh" to me...but overall its a decent list.
Although Killzone 2 being this low came as a shock. Yes, Killzone 1 was not anything special but it doesn't mean Killzone 2 isn't. To have Stanglehold as more buzzworthy than Killzone 2 is an insult to the fine folks at Guerilla. Wow, how quickly people forget Metroid.
all i have in my picks list is call of duty 4, mass effect,and bioshock.
Echochrom looks like a real POS, people are going to play that crap for 5 seconds, let the Wii make $#!+ like this. HALO 3 is the most anticipated game in the history of games, want proof, check the pre-order list anywhere!
killzone 2 should be last since the last one sucked. All we've seen is about 5-10 minutes of gameplay footage, no details on ANYTHING. Nobody's even played it hands-on. Same with MGS4 that should be last too, since we have seen NO gameplay only vapid trailers and screensavers and there both not coming out ill 08' so come on. Mass Effect or halo 3 should be the top 2 since we HAVE had hands-on time with them, and know mostly all the features the games will have.
