buzzwords:

epic
social

Kinect
Revolutionary

That said, Insomniac was pretty much it and even that wasn't a hell of a lot.

Hell that Battlefield 3 nearly put me to sleep. Need for Speed could be renamed to either Need for Car or Need for Gameplay. Reckoning was basically a Elder Scrolls/Fable clone. Teh Olde Republic was more like Teh Olde Footage. Then there's Football, more Football, Tricking down the Great Wall, and Friending your Sims.

Of course games like TR and ME3 are always nice to see but those are on the other systems as well. What's left as far as microsoft's output is concerned when you take away all the kinect BS? Forza 4 and Gears 3. That's it.
Halo4 is obviously big but that wont see the light of day for another 18 months.
They didn't even mention the witcher 2, probably not casual enough. It's one of the very best games I've ever played and they got the console exclusive, mentioning it would've done wonders for this conference and reminded hardcore gamers that they have something truly extraordinary to look forward to.

But that would be like reminding 360 owners that there are other games out there aside from First and Third Person Shooters driven almost entirely by QTEs.

Also, forgot to mention, but hey! There's that Gladiator game from last year's E3 that everyone entirely forgot about until this year's E-Wait. I'm sorry. What was I talking about again?


The EA conference will turn out good.They always cheer me up after MS annoys me with their Kinect stuff.

Hoping to see some more footage of a certain FPS


EA.

It's that stuff you just got done hearing about an hour and a half ago.

Except blander.

And more FPSes and FOOTBALL!!! BLUE 42! SET! HIKE!

Now a woman is scanning a plush and acting like an idiot.

Can't wait for the body pillows and dildos.

Also Naked and Cock avies, and I can doodle with my noodle.

Only on Kinect.

At least they remembered that Kinect stilled exists.

Tomb Raider was nice. Expecting to see it in all the other non-Nintendo conferences.

Halo 4. They even managed to make it to almost an hour before the show before the leak showed up. I'm impressed.

There's Fable. But it looks like I'll be spending most of my time firing off Hadokens like some online Ken newb.

Everything else met expectations.

I just hope they don't make it into another tech demo.


BTW, Parn: You forgot: MY GOD WE'RE JUST CHIAPETS

Welp. Looks like I'm gonna hafta git my olde schoole Ultima on. Ultima III that is (NES version).

Well, at least the price of admission is reasonable. Now if only I can dig out my NES.

For the love of god, don't subvert your subversions with fucking cliches.

Seriously, don't introduce a character who takes a tired trope and does interesting thing with it then lamely replace said character with the very archetype of said trope. Don't introduce a murder mystery involving an unreliable protagonist/narrator, running from the law, and supported by a cast of basket cases then try to justify it all with hours of technobabble that literally translates into A FUCKING WIZARD DID IT!!!. And don't go replacing a fallen character with their identical twin brother who's exactly as proficient at the tasks set to him as his late brother despite only a handful of people actually having any involvement with said task whatsoever, or replacing the new main character that you've been grooming into the being the new main character with the old main character who's character development concluded a long long time ago.

Seriously, don't.

Oh, and probably new 3DS lite or reworked version that offers less eye destruction for kids.

Too soon, even for Nintendo.

Don't be so sure, Nintendo have essentially become the Apple of console gaming so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see a new version so soon after the original release. That, and the fact that the 3DS apparently has problems that really do need fixing, makes it all the more likely.

Hah! No seriously, why in god's name would they bother to announce yet a new console when they're in the process of announcing a new console? Not even Apple would be THAT retarded. Besides it's not like the Pita or whatever it's called is going to be stealing the 3DS's thunder that quickly anyways (seriously, it lacks the raw stats to do that now, though it would still be a massive improvement over the PSP if it doesn't turn into the Port Station Portable 2 for the first three years of it's life).

Latest trailer: why does Pyrrah essentially apologize for every hit she makes...? x(

To make her into something other than just a reskin of Cassandra. Now she's Cassandra except slightly slower due to all the time she spends apologizing.

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/02/is-taki-returning-and-other-musings-from-soulcalibur-vs-director/

And they may bring Taki and her sagging boobs back (though it sounds like they're not going to do that and instead just wave their hand and say that "a ninja did it").
4090  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: White Knight Chronicles 2 and WKC PSP coming in English this May on: June 03, 2011, 09:06:48 PM
In other words, they didn't bother to deviate from the massive clichefest that was WKC1.

Or better yet, they kinda did for awhile then turned around and subverted their subversions to the point of outright sabotaging them, in some of the worst bait and switching one can pull in the very same way that WKC1 did. It's the very same reason that I loathe Chaos;Head with a fucking passion and will never give Steins;Gate the fucking time of day.

well im gonna try to keep an open mind for this e3. since i have non existant expectations something might surprise me :)

Too be fair, given last year's E3, I'd set my expectations down to zero too (unless your name's Nintendo in which case I'm pumped and ready to go (though, lets face it, they're going to be all about the hardware this year given the 3DS's release and the Wii2's unveiling (Speaking of which, what ridiculous name do you guys and dolls suspect said system will be called? I'm predicting the WiiPlus.))).

Konami pre-E3 conference countdown site:

http://www.konami.com/e3/

It'll be 1 a.m. here, fuck...

I wonder if they'll have a videogame featuring "TWO MILLION TOOPS!!!"?

Edit: Shit. They're doing this tonight! At least this makes the other conference times make sense. No more LOL 3AM SONY LOL.
4093  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: June 02, 2011, 12:52:00 PM
Ahahahaha!!! So now Serah-chan gets to be more than pedo-bait. Too bad, there probably isn't a staff variant more ridiculous than Vannile's Phishing Rods (or a summon more ridiculous than Vannile's Orgasm-bot).

So it looks like another round of following a bunch of half parties nobody gives a shit about doing whatever it is that they're vaguely alluding to as their goal for the time being through super-disjointed magical setpieces-of-whatever land.

Maybe this time they won't make the game into one overly-long continuous corrido-AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! Yeah, like THAT'S not going to happen.

Also, what the fuck is NotFang holding in the first picture?

I'm trying to figure out what to watch next. Maybe Macross? I don't know, but it should be something in Hulu, since I ain't spending shit.

Are you trying to say that you're going to watch some Robotech next?

And speaking of Hulu, I should probably get back to watching Slayers: Next. I started it about a year ago, but I haven't had the motivation to pick it back up since.

Finished Minish Cap. Got everything but two pieces of heart and six figurines (not that those two things are mutually independent of each other).
