Re: Official E3 2012 thread

Beyond, Watch Dogs, and Rayman are the only games that interest me and only barely at that. The whole show was a complete disaster for everyone. Hopefully Nintendo's 3DS show goes better tomorrow night.

Fortunately I don't own a PS3 or 360, so there are quite a few old games that can keep me busy during The Great Video Game Crash of '14.

And so far I see no reason to upgrade from my PS2.

I've really enjoyed my ps3, it's my blu-ray player, my Netflix streamer, plays all the .avis/.mp4s I download, and oh yeah, plays games. There really are some good games out there.

Anyone see Sony's Book of Spells AR thing with the Move? I was getting frustrated just watching the demonstration!

Sci-fi never predicted just how goofy the future was going to be.

Mass Effect? Red Dead Redemption? Portal? I think this generation has been pretty fucking good.

Well, Nintendo's presentation was rather... underwhelming. Nothing really interested me about the Wii U and its launch window stuff, so I'll be giving it a pass until there's more stuff out there for it.

I've still got a long list of games to catch up on for other systems at any rate.

It was rather painful. I'm not quite sure what Sony was thinking with the whole Wonderbook concept, but then I'm pretty sure that I'm not in the target demographic.

Anyone else watching the live coverage? I just started watching and they're showing a game called Planetside 2.

ETA: Oh, it turns out this game is Free-to-Play. Pretty awesome looking considering.

The Wii U is direction less. I'm not even sure why it exists and Nintendo's big conference has done nothing to explain it. Nintendo Land is supposed to be the killer app for the system, but I don't even understand what it is. I originally thought it was the OS, like the PS3's home, but it's apparently a standalone game? Killer apps for casual gamers shouldn't be confusing.

Surprised nobody talking about "THe Last of Us". That looks really good.

Meh, looks pretty boring to me. Just another scripted cinematic game where you move forward on an extremely linear path going from set piece to set piece shooting bad guys when they pop up behind boxes with almost no input from the player required.

If the game gives you freedom on how you solve each situation then it has the potential to be a GOTY, but I'm sceptical.

Since the Wii U looks so poor, I'm waiting so see if the XBOX 3 and PS4 are any better.

If its trying to tell a powerul story then no doubt it will need to be scripted, it takes nothing away from the game if its brilliant and the early signs are promising.
