e3 happenings...

I don't know how many of you follow e3, but i've looked through all the videos (go to www.ign.com or any other gaming site), an found these titles pretty impressive right now:

Spore (which blows everything away)

battlefield 2142 (future mechs and tanks, oh my)

Halo 3 (no surprise there)
Metal Gear Solid 4 (they do cinematic trailers better than anyone)
Crysis (sequel to FarCry)

for the wii (nintendo):
mario galaxy (mario works so much better than sonic in 3d )
smash brothers (featuring samus (metroid) and snake (metal gear solid))
--- snake even comes with a cardboard box and nintendogs appear on the screen as well


If you have time check out the Spore e3 demo, Halo 3 trailer, and new smash brothers trailer. Those are the best 3, though the metal gear trailer is also very good, and you can tell by the gameplay footage that the new mario and crysis are going to be worth checking out.


anyone else see something that caught their eye? there's some madden 2007 stuff, but no extensive video on the new features yet (not that lead blocking i going to make a very compelling video anyways).

I'd still take 3D Sonic over most of the crap being made today.

Re: e3 happenings...

*Spore looked absolutely insane.
*My top 3 things shown @ this years E3 were Zelda: Twilight Princess, Ninety-Nine Nights, and my absolute number 1 has to be Gears of War with an honorable mention going to Capcom's Lost Planet.
*Assasins Creed looked awesome and I'm a huge fan of the Prince of Persia titles and the fact that it loosely involves the Crusades has grabbed my attention.
*Dead Rising looked so much better this year than last and Enchanted Arms looks like it could give Final Fantasy a bit of a run for it's money graphically.
*Resistance:Fall of Man and Eight Days were the only PS3 titles that caught my attention.
*Anything Crytek does is gorgeous so I gotta upgrade my comp for that one.
*Super Smash Bros Brawl is gonna probably the most fun game to play with the Nintendo Wii.
*DOA Ultimate Volleyball has independent boob jigglage
*Hellgate London looks sweet as hell and hopefully the old Diablo team can pull off their FPS/RPG.
*Spiderman 3's character model looks almost exactly like the movie's cg version.
*Lemmings, Valkerie Profile, Ultimate Ghosts and Goblins, Field Commander, Online Chess Kingdoms and Ratchet and Clank r games that might convince me not to sell my PSP.
*The new Indiana Jones game looks like its gonna be full as hell to play.
*And last but not least Sonic for the 360 & PS3 looked incredible and looks to bring back Sonic from it's recent trail of crappy titles.

I'm buying the PS3 just to play Warhawk.

Re: e3 happenings...

the speaker in the wii remote = more awesome

hellgate london looked amazing last e3, so far the gameplay vids this year make it look like a very boring diablo clone :/

gears of war is an unreal based game, and with unreal 3 due out soon, i rather just wait for that

Re: e3 happenings...

wow, warhawk reminds me of airquake... looks nice.

lost planet also looks great, been awhile since the last good mech game... though it reminds me more of battletech than mechwarrior (some game released after mechwarrior 2 where you could get out on foot and also steal mechs).

enchanted arms just looks like another FF clone. good GFX, but repeating the same crappy story for the 100th time.

I wish assassin's creed had a gameplay video instead of just a pre-rendered trailer....

This past year I really lost some of my interest in video games. I was into rainbow 6 3 the original on xbox live and then the next one came out and I liked it for a while but it died out on me. That game was amazing though online because you would have your team and you all were against the other team and it was tactical. Halo 2 online was great being able to play 16 players and not all in the same dirty basement facing different TVs.

This is the next step of Xbox live, live anywhere. http://reviews.cnet.com/4660-12331_7...9.html?tag=img
It'll take a lot to take advantage of all of that it offers, mobile, computer and 360.

I think all the stuff at E3 is more impressive this year than last year and I think that I'll get back into it. I just hope someone in my dorm can afford this stuff. I still haven't even got a real chance to play 360, i hope all three are somewhere near by next year for me.

I hate how you basically have to bend over when you want to get the newest generation game consoles. I'm JUST NOW getting my own PS2.

PC only here. every 3-4 years i get a $500 computer and a $50-110 gfx card. If I had unlimited funds i'd consider it, but i don't.

Re: e3 happenings...

See, I CANNOT stand the process of rebuilding a new machine. I know you can normally plug and play the hard drive into the machine but I prefer a clean install and that takes me like 2 weeks working on it 2-3 hours a day to get it back into the condition that I HAD it in. Not only that, I want to have the best graphics card because I feel like a bitch when I have to play my games on average settings.

Re: e3 happenings...

Well, Sony pretty much flopped at this years E3 with their $600 price tag. Nintendo did well with the Wii and M$oft was probably the best one at the show this year as they continue to gobble up market share with at least a year lead time on Sony in the next gen race.

M$oft is now starting to tie in Windows, Xbox, mobile, etc...with some pretty sick ideas. Not too mention they did land Grand Theft Auto IV for the X360 in 2007 to go along with Halo 3.

Re: e3 happenings...

I really have lost almost all interest in video games. I use to spend hordes of cash on upgrading my PC every two years or so. Now, well, I don't even have Windows installed on my home machine. About the only console games I ever play are NFL 2k5 & NBA Live. I don't know why I lost interest though I suspect the non-existence of worthy games and having something else to do with my free time has something to do with it. It's all boring really.
