Really wanted them to announce a new Syphon Filter!!

morganfell2957d ago

I think a great many of us are itching to see a next gen version of Gabe Logan. Sony does have a few studios that are working on unannounced projects so there is always hope.

ExplosionSauce2957d ago

ME3 is looking like even more of a shooter than ME2 was(and war-ish) and less of an RPG. But I guess that's what happens after people bitched about ME1.
Basically Gears of War with a good story anyone? No? Ok.

But whatever, I'm sure it'll turn out a great game just like the previous two. So no worries there.

Kalowest2957d ago

Damnit, i want more RPG elements in ME3.

Greysturm2957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

I just hope this time they have a better army control system than what they offered in dragon age that was utterly ridicoulous.

Edit: I know its not bioware style but id kill for for a suikoden army control system :P. Of course space based and with heavy rpg elements from weaponry manufacturer, genetic enhancements, biotics roles etc.

ExPresident2957d ago

Are you talkin about PC version or console? I haven't played it yet but I've heard about the control system before. Is it a game breaking issue or should I still check it out? I've got a PS3.


X-Frame2957d ago

You can determine the gameplay mechanics of ME3 from a CGI trailer with no gameplay? Hmm.

chainer30002957d ago

I have zero doubt that ME3 will be an amazing game, regardless of the changes they make. I enjoyed the gameplay changes from ME1 to ME2 besides ammo becoming a component. Additional RPG elements would be welcome, but the shotting game became so well refined that I didn't have enough time to notice the missing RPG elements with such a rich convo system and advanced and expansive story line and universe to delve into.

Simon_Brezhnev2957d ago

i'll probably play ME3 on pc. The Witcher 2 is the sleeper hit next year the story will be better than any game next year and this is coming from a ps3 fan.

Uncharted 3 didnt blow me swept me away.

user83971442957d ago

Uncharted 3 is going to be the best game in 2011 followed by ME3 and Infamous 2. Also now its time for the Uncharted 3 vs Gears of War 3 comparison rigt?

Sarcasm2957d ago

Nah let's not start with that. Gears 3 is going to be awesome. 2011 is already looking like a stellar year although mostly with sequels.

etownone2957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

Uncharted 3 vs Gears of War 3 !!!

Definitely the match up for 2011 !!!
The two best new franchises this gen.... and both 3rd person shooters.

Uncharted 1&2 with an average metacritic score 92.0 & 7.51 sales
Gears 1 and 2 with an average metacritic score 93.5 & 12.09 sales

Uncharted 2:DF - GOTY of 2009
Gears od War 1 - GOTY of 2006

Just looking at the stats, any reasonable person should agree.

NnT32912957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

Uncharted is more like an action/adventure game to me, not third person shooter.

chainer30002957d ago

They are certainly different games. I would say Uncharted is a much more rich game with more detailed environments. It also is not a future sci-fi shooter,though similar 3rd person shooter mechanics, there are many more different elements than similar ones.

etownone2957d ago

So should we go back to comparing Gears to Resistance? A FPS?
That was never a fair comparisn because Gears trumped Resistance in everyway.

Uncharted 3 and Gears 3 should be the match up for 2011;

both are this gens best new franchises
both sell great
both have really good metacritic ratings
both have a GOTY under their belt
both have single and multiplayer

and both are going to showcase their respective consoles strength as far as graphics!! as of today, Gears 2 is 360's best looking game to date, same can be said about Uncharted 2.

You guys really have to be that nit picky? its like the kids saying Forza is a racer and GT is a sim.

Muitnorts2957d ago

I'd have to disagree with Gears being one of the two best new franchises this gen. I really like the games but they're definitely nowhere near Uncharted level quality.
It's ultimately a bit too repetitive and shallow to be one of my favourite franchises. Horde mode is great fun with a friend but nothing Gears has done comes close to Uncharted 2's set pieces.

Trytobee12957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

"but they're definitely nowhere near Uncharted level quality"

of course ... it was only a matter of time ... some Sony fanboy would come talking stupidity

"Just looking at the stats, any reasonable person should agree."

except the for the kids found on N4G

perfectCarbonara2957d ago

Uncharted and Gears the two best new franchises this gen ???

Don't you mean Uncharted and Mass Effect ?

DigitalAnalog2957d ago

I'd rather you mention Alan Wake. I enjoyed that game a lot more than both Gears, playing with a friend however make the experience different but at the core it was a very solid TPS at best.

Alan Wake reminded me of the original Uncharted, underrated yet at the same time it was incomplete in a sense. Should've focused on Bright Falls but I believe the blame should lie on building up the engine to support the game. Hopefully AW2 would do the gaming industry like what U2 did back then.
