EA has a thing tomorrow.

Really excited to see what EA does with NHL 09. IMO 08 was the best sport's game of last year.

Also, the new Halo project that is associated with Peter Jackson has the makings of pure greatness.

Aside from all the sequals for 360 (Fable, GOW, Call of Duty) I can't wait to see some of the new original games that are announced. There's always 3 or 4 every year that really interest me. Also, i've read a rumor that the 360 could be coming out with a Wii-esque controller.

I was really hoping we would finally see some more Alan Wake but, I wouldnt get your hopes up. I know Remedy hasnt confirmed anything and they werent on IGNs list of planned events/games. I dont know why they just couldnt release a new trailer or something, it's certainly coming out in 09 now, they should atleast give the fans a little something.

They always have surprises, though...so, hopefully they'll have something.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to E3 this year.

I believe if you subscribe to IGN/Gamespy you can view their Livewire show (which I do every year) where they'll interview a lot of the game developers and do live demos It's excellent.

This will hopefully be the majority of my day...What time does it start btw?

Im looking forward to-

Call of Duty 5

Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe


Tom Clancy's EndWar

Gears of War 2

Im hoping they talk about Starcraft 2

Forenci
07-14-2008, 03:55 AM
All those games you listed I too am looking forward to as well, Bantx.

Call of Duty 5 is somewhat iffy for me as it's not being made by the original developer of Call of Duty as I'm weary of it.

There should be plenty of Starcraft 2 stuff at E3 so no worries.

Biggest game I'm looking forward to seeing and reading about is Spore.

Making these games and these consoles cost much more than ever before, and total sales means less than ever before.

Fable II deserves a mention, good point, although it slipped my mind because the notion of a virtual ball and chain doesn't particularly excite me.

I haven't played Geometry Wars yet, so that's why the sequel didn't really register on the radar. It looked fun though.

Well, the 360 is certainly trying to get more interactive like the Wii. Based on some of the things we saw today, though...I'm not so sure that is a great idea. That movie thing was soooo lame.

man so far Microsoft has stolen the show.

I wouldn't say steal, since Nintendo and Sony haven't had there pressers yet, and I have to say some of the stuff Microsoft has shown has been underwhelming. I mean Fallout 3 looked horrible IMO. I don't really get the dashboard interface update, and why they are changing it. And that whole avatar thing just looks horribly lame.

But they definitely showed some great great stuff. GOW2 obviously. The lineup of RPG's that are coming out, especially the big Final Fantasy announcement. And the Netflix thing was definitely cool.

For a franchise that you claimed to be a Halo killer in the beginning, and a sequel you've been hyping up since the launch of the PS3, it would of been smart to show some more game play. I mean I agree with the guy, Sony has picked steam and has some momentum this year with Bluray and the success of the MGS4, but when Microsoft comes out with demo after demo after demo, the day before, and you come with Resistance 2, which looks awesome, and a bunch of trailers, it just doesn't match up. I was just expecting a lot more.

I'm not saying it was great, neither disappointing. They showed game play of Resistance and LittleBigPlanet, two games excepted to come out sometime in Fall 08. While games like M.A.G and God of War 3 are just being started in the development stage.

IMO, they spent too much time discussing the PSN and the PS2 which caused them to lose a lot of time.

I do agree that they should have shown some more game play and more tittles, and I was disappointed when they showed nothing of Heavy Rain and Socom.

I dunno about RE5. Much like MGS, I've just never been on board with RE and I'm concerned about the aiming in RE5. It looked like they were having some difficulty there and in a game like that, its a concern for me.


Although Sony still put on a pretty good show. Prior to E3, the last reason for me to get a PS3 somewhere along the line was FFXIII. And despite that no longer being the case, it's still not out of the question for me a few years down the line.
