After the big press conferences that we've already had, it moves to just booths in the convention halls.  We've got lots of appointments with developers tomorrow, and the team will be walking the floor looking at everything they can, so you'll see a lot more coverage from us, but there won't be any more big scheduled things.

First off, preemptive grats on your 7kth post.

Second, are you guys keeping your eyes peeled for SMT x FE? Because I was kinda disappoint at that not even being hinted at during the ND video.

Obviously.

Do you even know us?

Of course I do. I just wanted to stress emphasis and to provide a heads up in case you weren't able to check the ND since its not an actual part of the conference (the show floor is but the ND is its own thing).

Code:
Also it was something to give my post beyond a grats. :shh:

So this is supposed to end the series? I kind of was hoping this would be a side-story then we'd get a proper XIII-3 with the entire team, and the fantastic paradigm system, back for the finale.

It could still happen. Squeenix has already shown that previous game ending are no reason to not shoehorn in a nonsensical sequel when they made FFX-2 FFXIII-2.

I will be disappoint if I can't choose which member of my roving J-Pop Boy Band I want to play as.

Worst character ever

Improves the gender ratio at least. Not counting Ice Climber Nana and potentially any of the Pokemon, there were all of three playable female characters in Brawl (Zelda, Peach, and Samus) and two of them have alternate forms (and one can color scheme herself into somebody else).

Little Mac is pretty much a given as they've already showed a boxing ring stage, and given that Namdai helped develop this I can also see Pacman making it in as well. I guess the Mii will get in as well.

You know what XVersus needed? Sequels.

Alleged rumor that The...uh Wii Fit Girl is playable in new Smash Bros.

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/06/11/wii-fit-trainer-girl-joins-super-smash-bros-no-really/

And this is why I like SSB over the pretenders. Lololol.

They also swapped out the Tingle Tuner with the Tingle Bottle.

No mention on a new dungeon or something that addresses the Triforce Hunt.

Nintendo:

Super Mario 3D World. They finally brought back Peach to the roster (ala SMB2).

Mario Kart 8. Now you can hang upsidedown from the track while getting blown up by a dozen consecutive Blue Spiny Shells.

Wind Waker HD. Tingle Tuner got replaced by a bottle. Everything else looks the same. Big whoop. :/

Bayonetta 2. Now with less hair. Hey I thought Nintendo was against that kind of thing?

Big Red X. Continues to impress. I just wish it didn't look so Monster Hunter-ish.

SSBU/3DS. 3DS version doesn't look too bad, WiiU version obviously looks a hell of a lot better though. Hey look the Animal Crossing guy got in finally. And of course Samus is sporting her Other M look, fuck. And hey wait....MOTHERFUCKER!!! They finally included Megaman! Now we know why he wasn't included in Marvel vs Capco....wait? Is that IT!? WTF!?! Goddammit Nintendo!!! :doom:

Super Mario: More shit, new day.  Really don't think we need another game for the already saturated Mario-market.  If it's good, awesome, but unlikely a sale from me.

Dislike the new Bayonetta look...she looks more like the red-wearing girl (Jean?), but if the game is good....

Mario Kart Wii was a fucking nightmare to play with all the crap flying at you.  I'm done with it.

And yeah.  3DS Smash shows an unnecessary black cel-shade border around characters.  Blegh.  The WiiU one looks great though, I'll probably grab that.  I love the crazies for Megaman in the game, no one was this psyched for Tatsunoko or MvsC.  But ah well, cool beans.  Looking forward to the other additions.  Brawl was amazing for just filling that game to the RIM with awesome features.

Xeno games just looks ballin.

AND ZELDA TRAILER.  LINK BETWEEN WORLDS for 3DS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAluniNRibs
Looks awesome. Curious how story elements are handled...SNES Zelda was pretty dry for it, so....

SMB. I'll admit, even by their standards they've been leaning on Mario a bit much lately. At least its not a NSMB title.

SSB4. I don't mind the cel shaded look myself. It might make it easier to follow the action. The problem with Tatsukno v Capcom is that most people outside of Japan had no fucking clue as to who the hell half the cast, and due to licensing you can't even get the game anymore. Still, it's kinda sad how Capcom of Japan has more or less abandoned MM so its kinda ridiculous to see him in SSB. Still, I'm hoping the game is even half as loaded as Brawl was (and that they don't cut the demos of games stuck in Japan like they did with Earthbound and Fire Emblem 3). I suspect they probably have more characters waiting in the wings.

LoZ:aLBW. Well at least we don't have to call it aLttP2 anymore. Looks like some places are inaccessible like Shasharala's hideout (there's a statue in the doorway). And it does look like the Magic Meter has been replaced by a Stamina Gauge that replenishes over time but it also looks like the meter is upgradable like in aLttP. Now why the hell didn't they include this in the Direct video (I guess it got a mention during the E3 booth tour)?

Either way though, this proves that they brought the games this year (even if their Direct video was crap).

Nintendo:

Well holy shit was this presentation bad.

Super Mario 3D World. They finally brought back Peach to the roster (ala SMB2).

Mario Kart 8. Now you can hang upsidedown from the track while getting blown up by a dozen consecutive Blue Spiny Shells.

Wind Waker HD. Tingle Tuner got replaced by a bottle. Everything else looks the same. Big whoop. :/

Third Party trailers. Second verse, same as the first.

Digital/Indie titles. See above.

Wonderful 101. 5 players, big whoop.

Art Academy. Now in WiiU flavor.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Now with 100% more hair.

Bayonetta 2. Now with less hair. Hey I thought Nintendo was against that kind of thing?

Big Red X. Continues to impress. I just wish it didn't look so Monster Hunter-ish.

SSBU/3DS. 3DS version doesn't look too bad, WiiU version obviously looks a hell of a lot better though. Hey look the Animal Crossing guy got in finally.

WTF!?! Goddammit Nintendo!!! :doom:


Edit: And I couldn't see this during the live broadcast due to the rampant technical difficulties but....Pokemon X & Y. Now with a new Fairy Type to stick it to Dragons (and maybe make Jigglypuff/Marill suck a little bit less). The new Eeveeolution will be of that type.

Just don't go into expecting to understand anything about the plot.

Game of Thrones is more straight forward than KH (or at least less pants on head retarded).
4617  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2013 on: June 11, 2013, 06:43:42 AM
Asia too boring? They don't have an equally long and interesting history as the West no sirree it's all Samurai and uh, Emperors over there. Seriously, that is bullshit. You have Zheng He and the treasure fleets which gives access to all of Indo-China. You have England meeting China or America opening up Japan with the Blackships which has that West meets East thing. And then you'd still have ships and it could be about the Assassin's trying to establish connections in Japan since the East is mostly Templar. You have the Boxer rebellion with interesting politicking going on. You have Japans invasion of Korea. You could have the other important artifacts that they seem to have forgot about and set it earlier than the first AC and then you have access to anything.
Well that was a rant, but yeah I asked for the French Revolution when I heard AC3 was going to be further in the future than the others. It is much more interesting than the American Revolution. Plus they ruined their chance to have the Battle of Montreal in AC3 so clearly they don't care.

Well looks like they thought at least japan was too boring.
Also saw people suggesting it could've had martial arts, but Ubi would probably claim it'd be too much effort to get an expert on at least one fighting style and animate it.

And then also Russia seems to be a pretty popular one that people want.

To be fair, a better way of looking at it is with the question of where would Knight Templars be all up in (although China did have the Silk Road and would've been a possible place for Templar activity)? Granted, it probably would've been better if they had at least focused on stuff like the raiding of Spanish treasure ships by English Privateers such as Sir Nathan Francis Drake or picking off Spanish Conquistadors instead of Pirates of the Caribbean (like that hasn't been done to death already).

But yes something like the Russian Revolution, the English conquest of India, or something like the Boar Wars would've also have made for an entertaining setting.

As good as Sony's show was, I feel that it was more about sticking it to Microsoft rather than putting out something new and different aside from The Order, and I guess Destiny and perhaps Mad Max.

I disagree. 90% of the show was PS4, whether streaming media and apps or gaming. The list of points of crap PS4 won't be featuring took 5 minutes tops, and you can't say it wasn't on most of the online community's mind. The answer stuck it to MS, yeah, but the question was one we were all asking.

True. But what about the Vita? That thing got written off faster than the PSP did.

Besides, focusing entirely on a new console doesn't win you an E3. Just ask Nintendo circa 2012 (although it would've helped if one of the other consoles had a critical existence failure for the big N to publicly flog instead of desperately trying to court 3rd party developers and getting stiffed badly).

Come to think of it: THe Last Guardian???  ??

?

That didn't happen unfortunately.

Squeenix were the only ones shocking and awing, but even then, the FFXV thing and the KH3 thing were more of a fucking finally moment then an actual revelation (hell everybody and their brother knew and called their appearances and the Versus name change at this show).

I never said I was a fan of always on but its not a deal-breaker for me. I knew it was coming sooner or later so I've chosen to deal with it. Otherwise, what? Boycott the system and miss out on some great games? No thanks.

If it's a Microsoft game, probably a fairly good chance they'll end up on PC eventually which is where I will then pick them up.

You know, I somehow suspect that most, if not all that Microsoft showed this year, will end up on another platform within a year of its release.
