All excitement I had vanished into the depths of Hell when I read Idea Factory.

Maybe they can include some loving enemies in Future Hyrule Field.

Or maybe make it so that the enemies that actually are there become somewhat menacing somehow.

I might take the plunge in a few more months provided that all new RRoD horror stories don't start cropping up all over the place by then.

If I had to limit myself to preexisting games or franchises then either a sequel to Vagrant Story or one of the missing chapters of the Ogre Battle series.

So was there any news from Atlus on whether or not we will be seeing SRW:OGSaga:TLoE or Growlanser PSP in the US anytime soon?

Nintendo had a decent showing, though I was unimpressed by the zelda demo, thanks entirely to the motion controller being a GIANT PIECE OF SHIT. Course, their take on the intro of it was entertaining. Golden Sun Dark Dawn sold me, though. Fuck everything else, Golden Sun is win. 3DS is meh so far, I didn't get enough info from it to like or dislike it. I'll look tomorrow. Epic Mickey seems Epic, though...

Microsoft....Welcome to last place.

Sony has Kevin butler. They could have announced Jak and Daxter racing, Resistance 1:Redo, MAG 2, and a price increase and I STILL would give them the best E3 presentation solely due to Kevin Butler putting gaming itself into perspective. He didn't EXACTLY state PS3, though he did at the same time, he didn't bash either nintendo or ms, though he kind of did. He fought for the sake of gaming in general. Sure, it was a fancy script, sure it was just an act, but I bought it and as a gamer I appreciated it. That being said, fuck Move, fuck Twisted Metal, fuck Killzone 3.

Once again, MS....heh heh, failure.

Have to agree, one of the most disappointing E3s I can ever remember.

Why bring out stuff like Golden Sun last year if it wasn't really ready and show it again this year?
My biggest complaint with both Sony and Nintendo is they showed a lot of the same stuff they showed last year. I didn't watch MS's conference but I heard it was terrible.
There was just an underwhelming feeling of meh to the whole thing.
If Nintendo had saved stuff like Golden Sun and Metroid Other M for this year, they would have knocked it out of the park.


Except that those were what they used to knock it out of the park last year.

Up until yesterday the only things we knew about Zelda Wii was that it was going to be released on the Wii, it was going to use Wii Motion Plus, and it was going to star a swordless Link resembling TP's Link and a mysterious girl who's appearance resembled the Master Sword. Now we know that they really did decide to go down the Celda route but still maintaining the overall appearance of TP's Link, we know that they're replacing the Boomerang once again for a Beetle (or was it the Whip that replaced the Boomerang), we know that you can go bowling with bombs finally, we know that the sword beam's back again, we know that the forest temple or whatever will be sporting a mushroom motif (for now), we know that Link can go sky diving apparently (also for now), and we know that the game won't be making it this year.

Beyond that we also got new announcements for a new Donkey Kong Country game, a SMW vs. SMW2:YI level of new Kirby adventure, and a new SSB:B-ish Kid Icarus.

Also say what you will about Other M's been there done that-ness, but seeing Samus doing Metroid-y stuffs versus Ninja Gaiden stuffs or angsting stuffs was not a bad thing at all.

If anything Goldeneye was by far the weakest thing shown during Nintendo's conference. Distorted nostalgia isn't changing the fact that its still one FPS amongst far too many. Even DQIX's buy this at stores near you on so and so was better because they didn't waste anymore time on it than absolutely necessary.

^Yes. An animated gif of Reggie with his dopey XD face. Now we need one using his dopey @_@ face.

Anyways, did anyone else notice how the start of the trailer only referenced the console titles up to OoT?

Also, let me be among the first ones to hope that this title is either a sequel or spinoff title ala Link's Awakening or Majora's Mask rather than another 'Save Zelda (or in this case Celda) from Gannon.' title. We've already had two console titles like that in a row already.
5049  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2010 on: June 15, 2010, 07:53:01 PM

That's the exact same one shown during Sony's conference.

Good to have though as I did notice some things that I couldn't before due to broadcasting issues that everyone and their brother was having at the time.


Call me crazy but I'm really not that interested in shooters anymore. MS had nothing but shooters, Sony has Killzone 3 which is meh(Killzone 2 had you playing as a hobbit or something because you were literally waist high to your comrades) and Nintendo has a new(same) Goldeneye which is nice as a novelty but way over-hyped. The games I'm down with are The Witcher 2, Last Guardian, New Zelda(just because) Star Wars: FU2 and possibly MGS: Rising.  The whole thing so far is underwhelming in terms of "surprises"  The 20th version the DS is bullshit! I've bought 2 already..no more!

Unlike the others though the 3DS is a legitimate upgrade versus the i series (it's a lot like going from the GameBoy Advanced SP to the GameBoy Micro to the DS Phat).

And I agree that too much of E3 was devoted to shooters of some kind. Even EA, known for their yearly sports titles, were so packed with shooters that the yearly sports title installments felt like refreshing breaks.

Sony just simply wasted way too much space talking about how they're reinventing the wheel without actually showing said wheel. There's no doubt that they have don't have good games for everyone out on the horizon, but you couldn't really tell that at all based on their performance this year. Nevermind just how much of their thunder was stolen by EA and Ubisoft. The shooter glut reduced Killzone 3 into just another shooter in the wall while Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and so on just smacked of 'been there done that' regardless of just how much new footage they showed. There's going to be a chicken in every pot and a Portal 2 on every system which made that presentation lack punch.

But then you had games like Heroes on the Move and Final Fantasy XIV getting about 5 minutes of fame and God of War getting much less time than that. Only one game, Sorcery, actually showed off the Move. Gran Turismo looks shiny as hell but is a terrible title to be one of the very few exclusives to focus on. The PSN Plus thing sounds like a terrible idea based on what they presented (you get a few demos, map packs, and other extra junk for $40+ a year but you really have to commit to it or kiss whatever you invested into it goodbye).

And why the hell did Sony need to waste about 15 minutes on a kid with 'tude? (Although I guess they needed somebody to rival Microsoft's two new ESPN SportCenter mascots.)
5051  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2010 on: June 15, 2010, 04:57:07 PM
Sony:

Killzone 3: Oh look. A shooter. Haven't seen one of those before.

Move: Sony PR serving the smack talk

Sorcery: Change a few names and spell effects and you've got a Harry Potter game.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11: Was this game shown during EA's presentation? I can't remember anything from that conference save for a nearly endless stream of shooters and occasional sports title.

Heroes on the Move: Naughty Dog Mascot Crossover.

Sony's New Mascot: Gave me bad flashback to the 90's X-tream 'tude style marketing.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta: Scowl Harder.

PSP Montage: New 3rd Birthday footage spotted, including body swapping. There were some other stuffs too.

Little Big Planet 2: LBP * 2.

Playstation Plus: You get stuffs for as long as you feed Sony money, and then you'll lose it all should the cash stop flowing. No claps followed either.

Medal of Honor: Oh hey. It's this game again.

Dead Space 2: New footage, same game yet again.

Portal 2: Well there's something.

Final Fantasy XIV: Still looking good for an MMORPG.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Again new footage, same game yet again.

Playstation 3 Montage: Kojima Castlevania spotted.

Gran Turismo 5: Looks fucking gorgeous.

Infamous 2: Now with monsters.

Twisted Metal: They brought out the loving Ice Cream Truck.

Aside from the five seconds of T3B footage, Little Big Planet 2 and Twisted Metal were the only things not rehashed, montaged, or monologued.

I'm going to go rewatch Nintendo's conference again to remind myself that this E3 wasn't completely awful.

I know that this is late but America tied with Brittan. It's the best I could've hoped for.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!

When there's the sun, there's always the rain: http://press.nintendo.com/E32010/index.html

Reginleiv, The Last Story, and Xenoblade probably NOT coming to the US...

Losing Reginleiv is a goddamn travesty. I was really hankerin' for some Norse Defense Forse.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about Xenoblade though. On the one hand the environments looked fucking gorgeous and it almost felt like this was going to be the game to finally channel Secret of Mana as a 3D action adventure title. On the other hand it looked a bit too slow, bland, and generic for my tastes.

I have no fucking clue as to how to respond to the lack of a localization for this. Mostly because I still have no fucking clue as to what the fuck this is supposed to be.

Sakaguchi once said for one of his games that he wanted to make gamers cry, and so far he's succeeded masterfully out here in the west.


That as an aside though I couldn't help but feel that Kojima's little pre-recorded blurb during Nintendo's conference was actually longer than his stage time during Mircosoft's conference. That actually deserves an lol if true.
5054  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 3DS' upcoming RPGs on: June 15, 2010, 02:23:19 PM
You forgot the all important Super Robot Franchise entry.

That said, I suspect that the FF entries will likely be the 3DS remakes of FFs V & VI.

Also if Persona turns out to be a port of the PSP remake, then maybe our chances at seeing a localized Growlanser will improve.
5055  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: If you could marry one JRPG girl on: June 15, 2010, 02:17:47 PM
Ashley from Vagrant Story. That was the chick's name right?

Or was it Sidney? Now that I think about it, I recall there being more than one chick in that game.
