To me it seemed like a wash in the Sony vs. Microsoft comparison. They each had their share of exclusives, but for me, the Sony exclusives seemed more compelling. I don't think either one "won" the battle of presentations. It all seemed sort of by the book and uneventful. No 'holy crap' moments for me. I was mildly surprised about the Xbox backward compatibility reveal, so I may end up getting an Xbox One this Christmas.

That jeep driving sequence was hilariously over the top.

And then the two talking heads post presentation are god damn annoying. Somebody punch them.

I wouldn't want to have to keep trying that Jeep sequence over and over even if it does look good.

Maybe it's due to the partially developed state of the game, but the worrisome thing is that there were NO visual cues telling you where to go.

No sign of the Morpheous hardware on stage?  Hmmm.

My impression is that the thing is nowhere ready for release. I certainly wouldn't expect it this year.

Do my eyes deceive me? The graphics don't look quite as impressive as the previous gameplay footage release months ago (the jungle/cliffs sequence).
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 02:25:35 AM
I missed the beginning of Sony's presentation but I guess Vita really is a legacy platform. No featuring of any Vita games at all.
87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 02:21:00 AM
Whoa, different Battlefront footage!!

That guy presenting Disney Infinity 3.0 was dangerously close to Chris Farley levels of spazziness.

I do like the futuristic theme, so I will get it.

Damn, the action in that last sequence was so frenetic it was making me dizzy.

Good start with South Park and good finish with Ghost Recon but that was a messy middle.  You are up Sony!  Let's see some Morpheous action.

Totally agree. At least Aisha Tyler made it entertaining.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 11:15:58 PM
So, a marginally better presentation compared to EA. Ubi showed more actual gameplay but they still were heavy on the prerendered video. That's the way E3 is evolving now I guess.

Sony is up next. I have low expectations based on what I've see so far today.
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 11:11:31 PM
Holy crap. New Ghost Recon game. Kill the drug dealers!

97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 10:46:19 PM
Forget that. Show more of Genevieve Forget! Oh la la!

Seriously though. I appreciate that they are showing actual multiplayer gameplay, but real world gamers don't talk like that while playing. Not enough f-bombs and insults.
98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 10:44:27 PM
Lol, Angela Bassett is this year's Kevin Spacey celeb in-game character cameo.

Ubisoft sees your Spacey and raises you a Bassett. Your move Activision...

And what would another year be without another Just Dance game, with Jason Derulo cameo! SWOON!

Tom Clancy's The Division:

No one in the real world talks like that during multiplayer gaming. NO ONE. As for the game, it looks nice but it doesn't seem particularly innovative or different.

New game franchise: For Honor

Looks like a medieval version of Battlefront, and they have actual gameplay footage! Watch and learn, EA!

104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 09:52:39 PM
I am amazed by how much fluff they showed. Plants vs Zombies and Battlefront were really the only two games where they showed extensive actual gameplay.

And Peter Moore still owes us a definition of what the hell 'photogrametry' means.
105  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 09:25:56 PM
As a Star Wars fan, that Battlefront gameplay footage was 'holy shit!!'

Aside from that and Mirror's Edge, the rest of EA's presentation was a whole lot of lame. They showed a ton of "captured in-game" footage, especially with their sports games. E3 just ain't what it used to be. No one actually show gameplay anymore. It's all pretty marketing fluff.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 09:16:51 PM
Peter Moore-ism of the day: "Photogrametry"

Star Wars Battlefront. Let's see if they have the guts to actually show gameplay.
107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 09:08:09 PM
Finally something to get excited about. The new Mirror's Edge game looks pretty awesome. Hope it plays as good as it looks.

The catch-phrase of the show this year is "captured with in-game engine".

OKAY WE GET IT, EA DUDE. You are a Pele superfan. Jesus.

I will give them credit for seemingly spending a lot of time and energy to bring women's soccer to the FIFA game.
109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:55:06 PM
So far, this is the worst EA E3 presentation ever.

Who cares about soccer penalty kicks?? Where the hell are the games?
110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:48:20 PM
Mobile gaming is where I take a bathroom break. Can't believe EA is spending so much presentation time on this crap.
111  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:45:07 PM
Kinda interesting that the EA NBA game presentation consisted of in-game engine video, but seemingly no actual gameplay or interface. Looks pretty but where's the substance?
112  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:40:51 PM
Good lord, the forced witty banter between the old middle age white guy and young hip black guy was PAINFUL to watch.

Want one of those new Xbox One controllers they announced today? All yours for $150. Wow.
114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 06:49:27 PM
Thanks for posting the summary Caine. Now that I see the list after the fact, maybe it's a product of how many E3 shows I've watched to the point of being completely jaded, but the whole MS presentation was pretty 'meh'. A few interesting games. Everything certainly looked pretty, but nothing that excited me. Even the initial list of backward compatible games is disappointing. Seems like a random list of really really old early 360 games. LOL, Hexic HD was a 360 launch game, for god's sake. That Gears 4 gameplay preview was TERRIBLE. Graphics looked underwhelming and everything was so dark it was hard to watch.

I have a feeling Sony's presentation will be equally disappointing. Not a lot of pre-show hype this year for them, unless they are purposely keeping things very close to the vest in order to surprise people.

I love Cuphead's aesthetics. This is the kind of stuff I watch Microsoft's conferences for.

They showed this at last year's E3.  I was psyched about it then.  I hope the time has made for a super-polished game.

Man, I can't believe the BC stuff!  I'm sitting out the conferences this year.  Was there mention of pricing for this or anything?  Or is it just available for free if you already own the game?  Playstation Now was out of the gate really early, but their pricing model is ridiculous.  Any word on save games transferring forward?

No details about BC yet, but if you own the game on disc, you insert it and it acts like a download key to let you get the digital version. Here is the initial list of BC games. Kind of underwhelming:

Pretty much a by the numbers presentation. Nothing really surprising other than the backwards compatibility announcement. While the games all looked visually impressive, nothing really blew me away. The Rare pirate  game looked mildly fun, and the indie game with the little blind(?) girl was different. Everything else was expected. The holographic Minecraft was cool, but beyond the impressive tech involved, how practical is this device? It seems like a pretty expensive novelty-- like Kinect was when it was announced.

During the Xbox 360's glory years, I was really behind Microsoft, but with PS4 I am pro-Sony so Microsoft really had to show me something special to make me come back. The needle is definitely pointing back towards them but still not quite there yet. I'm looking forward to Sony's presentation later today. Not expecting a whole lot but you never know.
117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 05:33:34 PM
I've had zero interest in getting an Xbox One but backwards compatibility has me reconsidering now. I have a a huge collection of 360 games and if I can still use the discs as essentially download keys, that makes it a game changer for me.

The U.S. PS4 patch was out just before this past weekend. I think it's the Xbox patch that is out today?
119  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Assassin's Creed Series - Help Me Dive In! on: June 04, 2015, 04:43:56 PM
To me the only ones worth playing are AC2 just to get a decent introduction to the series and the mechanics, and AC4 because pirates are awesome. IMO, AC4 is the best in the series by far.
