At work now so I haven't clicked the link but last night on Fallon they showed a trailer. 
Suffice it to say that I laughed - in the trailer I saw there was an instance of them looking for diamonds under an old lady. There was talk of a turkey and giblets and some dust. 
I'll remember that for quite some time to come.

From what I've heard, this is the same trailer.

I played a few matches of each type today.  I know I tend to be a bit cynical and negative in general anyway, but it's really hard not to just rip on this game for being basically a straight up Battlefield mod.  Same UI and everything. 

BLERG!

This make me sad sad sad.

But without the same UI, there is no reason to call this Battlefield at all.

There was also a comment about not needing the right tool  to progress.  Not sure how that'll work and keep the Zeldaness.


Isn't that more or less what they did with the 3DS game A Link Between Worlds?  Offer item rentals so that players had more flexibility in how they wanted to progress through the game?

That's an earnest question -- I'm only relaying what I've read about that game.

As far as the WiiU game, I'll go on record right now that I'll be shocked if it meets the expectations people are forming after hearing Nintendo compare it to Skyrim.  I bet their goal is to make the world a lot bigger, with more distance between destinations and lots of little secrets and challenges to complete as you explore.  Unfortunately, the comparison point they've chosen also implies it'll have hundreds of quests, crafting systems, and lots of freedom of choice -- all RPG mechanics which Nintendo has zero experience implementing and, frankly, would fit a Zelda game very poorly.

Let me be clear: I own a WiiU, Zelda is one of my all-time favorite game franchises, and I would probably slide-tackle Destructor-kun out of the way to get my hands on this game even a few seconds earlier.  In fact, I'll probably go out of my way to make sure that exact thing happens.  I just don't think the finished product will make anybody say, "Wow, comparing this to an Elder Scrolls game wasn't ill-conceived at all!"

-Autistic Angel

Nintendo never compared it to Skyrim.  They only were mentioning how you could visit the mountains in the distance when referencing how big the world is (which is something that triggers thoughts of Skyrimfor a lot of people, I think).

Also, you're right about the item rental shop in the latest 3DS Zelda, but that world was a lot smaller, which made that a manageable system.  Also, as you got into a dungeon, it usually became clear which tool you needed to go rent.

TRAILER
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Battlefield: Hardline on: June 11, 2014, 04:34:01 AM
I liked the modes on offer here quite a bit (though, yeah, they'd better have a lot more to offer if they're making it a full release).

However, I found the current balance to be waaaay too chaotic.  There were a number of times where I spawned and couldn't even get close to having my bearings before I was dead (it may not be one shot like R6, but it feels awfully close).  The wait to respawn is quite painful.  In the moments where I did get in the fray, it was nearly impossible to keep track of what was going on or who was where.

Haven't most Zelda games been open world? It seems like in most of the ones I've played, you could pretty much go anywhere you want except certain areas were blocked off until you found whatever tool you needed (bombs, boomerang, etc.). How is this Zelda going to be different?

They have all been sort of illusions of open world, with the content in locked off dungeons or like Wind Waker had you going on the boat to small islands and still locked off by needing certain items.  Supposedly this is going to be more like Skyrim, just a giant open world and you can truly go anywhere.  I'm certainly hoping for that.

There was also a comment about not needing the right tool  to progress.  Not sure how that'll work and keep the Zeldaness.

10 minutes of Captain Toad

Well worth watching.

That really does look great.  And it looks ready to go!  Is this another 2015 release?

EDIT TO ANSWER:  No!  According to Game Rankings, Toad will see the light of day his headlamp in Q4 2014!

Kingpin has also been cast.

IMO, Vincent D'Onofrio is an interesting choice.  The good kind of interesting.

MGSV on the PS4 is showing up as 20.99 for me. The PS Blog says it should be $18.99.

I'm seeing Ground Zeroes at $18.99 (but it looks like it should be $14.69).
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 04:45:34 PM
Apart from Splatoon, which didn't look like much of anything when it started and turned into the game I'm most interested in, this didn't do enough.

Like everyone else, too many games coming in 2015.  And not enough surprises.  Not even enough expected reveals (although Zelda looked cool).

And nothing about price drops or early adopters reward programs.

Still, there was very little that didn't interest me at least a little, and some of it looked quite cool.

Also, Nintendo does tend to leave some stuff for the show floor, so we'll see if there's more.
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 04:34:47 PM
Xenoblade Chronicles and now something called Mario Maker which is looking like Mario meets Little Big Planet in which you design your own Mario levels.

That could be cool, though the clip was a little bland feeling, IMO.


And now Splatoon, which is 4x4 area control action game where you're spraying an area with your color, trying to dominate with your color.  Also, you can switch between a shooting human and a squid (who can swim in the colored ink).

You can also use the evolving Wii U pad map to hop to your allies' location.

Lots of innovative ideas in this one.  I think this could be something.

Also, 2015.

Looks like they're resurrecting one of the best Kirby games from the original DS in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 04:29:52 PM
I'm excited about Hyrule Warriors, but this presentation is fluffy and boring.

They're saying the same things over and over.

Bayonetta 2 will include Bayonetta 1.

I may make it through the first one this time.

Did Bayonetta get a haircut at the end of the first game?
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 04:24:09 PM
Link is in aqua, not green.  And he looked even more feminine than usual.

To the point that I wonder if this isn't a new character (or at least our first female Link).

They are taking a page from Skyrim.  "Walk to those mountains."   Nice.

Yoshi's Wooly World.  Filled with the same charm as LBP and has a great look

It's weird that they tried to distance this from Kirby's Epic Yarn (which was good), when they're clearly from the same DNA.

The Yoshi game seems to be doing a lot more, though.

And 2015.

Miiis will fight in Super Smash Bros.

And Wii has co-opted Skylanders with Amiibo.  Interestingly, it'll work in other games and will work with Skylanders and Disney Infinity characters and is already built into the Wii U controller.

With his pounding on his boss and getting his ass kicked by Mario in an empty black space, it felt like we were getting insight into Reggie's psyche.

Doesn't the remote play go from the PS4 to the router and then to the Vita?

I think it supports both going through a router and communicating directly with the Vita. You can change between the two methods at will. Using the router is supposed to be more effective though (which is kind of strange).

Yeah it supports both and neither seems to work.  Alas for another thread!  I was just venting.
I'd read that the direct connection doesn't support remote play out of the house, but tbh, I haven't tested it.  I'll remote and check what settings I have it on now when I get a moment.  

The PS4 E3 app was a huge failure, but I think they tried to make it happen without testing it as the ustream url suggests it should have been playing in the app instead of the browser.  The other tabs are useless until the populate content.  I have to question why they would bother having the app at all when the other tabs all say to come back on 6/10 when their conference was yesterday.  

This crap-ass app made me miss 15 minutes of the presser last night.

Don't watch anything!  This game is a masterpiece and meant to be enjoyed spoiler free!

Yeah, I was surprised at how much the trailer actually gives away, honestly.  Without context, a lot of it would go over the heads of people who haven't played it, but not all of it.

So we shouldn't expect anymore reveals today other than Nintendo, correct?

It's the last "conference" but there may be smaller reveals during the week.  Consider how many publishers don't have conferences, and how limited time on stage is for Sony,MS, and Nintendo.  So unless it's big or exclusive a few games could easily not show up in any of those conferences.

The Twitch E3 Schedule shows a couple of unannounced titles still to come (including some from MS), but those are likely just titles that weren't announced when the list was put together but have been mentioned since.

Still, you never know.  The live list is the same, too.

I haven't caught up on the sony presser, but I saw a good 30+ minutes, and have to say, if we're keeping score, Sony wins it again.  Now I just have to wait until the games I want to play but can't on the PC is available, then I'll buy the ps4

Come back when you've watched the whole thing.  It's decidedly less obvious.

Could Nintendo steal this E3 with a Mario or Zelda announcement?  I liked MS event more than what Sony is putting on, mostly due to more actual gameplay shown.

Yeah, hard to know.  Microsoft definitely had a much better paced presentation and did it all about the games.

I was more interested in more of the games at the start of this, though.

I was also hoping they'd announce pricing.
