I got Aladdin, Super Street Fighter 2, and a Baseball game plus an extra Gen 1 XBox controller. 'Nuff said. :D

Should've included the scene where Laura is getting felt up by a thug (this would've been in an actual MB film) and more of that ridiculous Resievil 6 scene where a street filled bumper to bumper in Hollywood Physics vehicles perform the explosive equivalent of the wave (bonus points for including the point where the half a dozen or so nameless grunts sacrifice themselves by hopping out of the chopper carrying them to provide cover for the two protagonists and not bothering with actually trying to get back into da' choppa').

If it weren't for this, Code of Princess, and Watch Dogs(seriously), this E3 would've been a total disaster.

Well that and Agni's Philosophy, but who knows if that'll lead to anything down the line.

I wouldn't say a "total" disaster without those since Simcity 5, Assassin Creed 3, and Paper Mario looked good and impressions on New Super Mario Bros. U, Castlevania, and Luigi's Mansion looked favorable at least, but even with the sum total of these games on their own this would've been disastrous. I'd say we ended up with dismal and pathetic (except for Microsoft as that was entirely unmitigated in disaster magnitude).

Additionally I wouldn't put anything on Agni's Philosophy or anything Squeenix does these days. To me, they're almost as bad as Crapcom (if by a sizable margin).

Yeah, I'm just confounded at how they missed that in the three conferences that gave us Non-Specific Action Figure, Disney Nintendo Land, and Threediots (nevermind the exact same Scriblenauts trailer in all three). That and some kind of confirmation that Sony wasn't just making a pathetic Smash Bros. clone were all that I really wanted this year. This E3 out-sucks 07's.

I'll admit, that Paper Mario looks good, and both Castlevania and Luigi's Mansion seemed alright. But beyond that the 3DS conference just showed the same dismal content that everybody else had already shown by then and Threediots just to rub salt in the wounds.

And all for this.

It took them three E3 conferences just for this.

Pack it up folks. 2012's done.

Lol. Even you Squeenix? And you had the leading fem-anime come from the Evil Cult?

E3 2012: Year of the Evil Muslims.

Wii purchases transfer over. All I needed to be sold on the system, I have slight graphic artifacting and don't like how purchases work on the Wii, Wii U going to an account based system is the best change they could've made.

So when the hell did Nintendo hire a guy who not only knew that the internet existed but had actually been cribbing notes from Sony and Microsoft?

So apparently Cartoon Network did a thing and made Adult Swim's Saturday Night Anime block into Toonami. I would say they did this in the lowest amount of effort possible but they did add both Deadman Wonderland and Cashern Sins to the lineup and thus can be forgiven, but it's seriously weird watching these interspersed between 5 year old Toonami segways instead of the usual disgruntled AS cards secretly wishing they could do away with Anime all together.

The Last of Us trailer was brilliant!!  And I'm high right now -- it went up in "osm" 10 points.
Very pretty, lotsa fucks, and a dude got hit by a brick.  Sold.

I probably should watch this and GoW4 in non-stuttery slideshow format. :(

Nintendo was okay. Seems like they need to be taken on the whole for this one though as they had practically nothing on the 3DS, not even a peep on FE11. ;_;

Zelda, I can live without for a year or two thanks to Skyward Sword.
After MOM Metroid is probably better off being frozen like a, well like a Metroid, for another 7 years or so.
And I've been one of those few people who would've put money on a TGS appearance for SSB4 so I'm not fazed by the lack of this (unless this is that Platinum Games thing Reggie was talking about, in which case, well fuck).

Dance Central 3.  Day one for me.  Fuck the Kinect haters.  Fuck 'em all.



One could say that he's ushering in an era of 360 irrelevancy for the next year.

So far:

Ass 3 has proven to be awesome
New Rayman looks tight
Last of Us is remarkable
Watch Dogs is a surprise story and it looks fantastic. Hometown connection helps with me
Ass 3 vita w/ the babe assassin looks cool but I dunno about another handheld I might not play ever.
Sim City look great, but I don't have a gaming computer
Disappointed in Dead Space 3. It'll probably be fun but meh
Microsoft sucked up another year.
God of War 4 will be fun but nothing to write home about.

You forgot that Sony Smash Bros. disappointed with only the most obvious reveals of Nathan Drake and Big Daddy.

Best part of the EA conference.


followed by the sudden disappointment that this was Metroid Prime 4: Halo.

If we actually had Halo adopt more than superficial similarities that would be AWESOME.

To be fair the MP series had been slowly devolving into something resembling more and more like Halo (not that it actually got there but honestly, Corruption was linear as hell and the Pirate Homeworld felt like The Covenant Homeworld a little more than was comfortable) but this video does seem like Halo's trying to bridge the gap from the other end. You can use the Smrt Glass like a ghetto scan visor, the enemies look even more like Space Pirates than the Covenant ever did, and depending on how much fetch questing you're made to do it could easily feel like you're playing as Master Aran trying to save Samus Chief from running out of hard drive space.

But this is just a feeling I have and will probably not make it either way.

Never before have I seen such good conference time wasted so badly.

Outside of the South Park guys trolling the audience by vacating the building immediately after making their presentation, the best part of the conference was the sudden realization that this sweet movie trailer was Halo 4 followed by the sudden disappointment that this was Metroid Prime 4: Halo.
