Mucu from GamesOnSmash.com gives us a run-down of what was witnessed at E3 on Monday. Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft - Did anyone truly impress today?
was probably the best yesturday
They were. I had hoped for a Mass Effect 3 trailer, or even a teaser, but whatever. Was still good without it. Loved the Dead Space 2 stage demo, can't wait to see the 2nd half of it at Sony's conference.
me2 just came out like 3-4 months ago there was no way they would show 3 already. dead space is my second favorite game show with GRFS being first.
expect ME3 next year :)
Well they did say there would be a lot less time between ME2 and ME3 than there was between ME1 and ME2.
yeh EA was certainly the best imo. Some good solid games shown and nice little announcements such as the MoH beta starting this week. Ubisofts showed off some good stuff but too much kinect and fitness games for my liking. I guess it was some variety though. Microsofts was the best put together but completely lacked content. A decent show but no real memorable moments or times when i got excited going 'omg' like in past years when MGR was unveiled and ff13 went multi
The reason no one is impressed is because everyone is ready for the next generation already. Even though some games have upped the bar (slightly) graphically most games look like they are 5 years old already. Why? Because the hardware running it is that old.
good video I think M$ E3 was epic fail
Some good points are raised in this video, I think the gentlemen in this video pretty much feels like everyone else 'underwhelmed'.
ghost recon was not meh
your right MEGA meh
Cant wait for it to finish with move :)
m$ = fail
Totally agree that the battletag was a giant pile of ridiculous. Oh and that host for Ubisoft needs to go. What was he wearing silver armani pajamas? He looked like a bafoon, and certainly added to the awkwardness of the conference. EA's conferece was the standout. They delivered. Peter Moore goofed when he made mention of the Miami Colts (and all this time I though they were from indianapolis). That said, Peter Moore is awesome, so he gets a pass. They showed some very cool titles (although I am not a Madden fan so that whole bit was a loss for me). Microsoft's conference was an utter failure and certainly felt all to familiar (Gears, Halo etc) with entirely too much Kinect thrown in. Of all games to show they decide on the Ubisoft fitness title? Seriously? And perhaps it was just me, but what was up with the intentional Political Correctness and inclusion? Asian presenters check Black presenters check Gay presenter (dance game) check awkward white presenters check...it was all a bit ridiculous. Oh and for the record the new 360 is still a ripoff. Proprietary hard drive check, built in wireless (who cares any gamer worth their salt uses hard wire) check Bluray...nope! Failure! The PS3 is the same price and offers much more. Oh and to sway your opinion you all get 360's. Outright bribery.
Micrsoft DID have that big OMG moment when they unveiled a new exclusive IP made by Crytek. That was HUGE.
However spending most of the time on Kinect was such a waste, I thought that's what Sunday night was for, again what a waste. I wanted to see more of Fable 3 because that trailer left more questions than answers.
The exclusive ESPN announcement was another big blow to cable companies everywhere, I expect Hulu to be announced when it's ready (there are licensing kinks still being worked out).
Ubisoft was the winner for me. Why? RAYMAN!
Also Ghost Recon looked gorgeous, but I still don't know shit about AC:B.
EA was run of the mill, no surprises, but solid in content, no complaints.
Typical E3 day.
good point about waving your hand in the dark when watching movies
