Wow, EA showing multiple prototypes at E3.   saywhat

It does indicate that they've been taking a wait-and-see attitude to the new generation of consoles, which means they're scrambling to catch up and have little to show without prototypes. But that may just be the cynic and EA-hater in me talking.

I had hoped that they were farther along than this with Mirror's Edge 2, so I'm kind of disappointed. This could turn out to be a 2016 game.

One thing that struck me about the MS conference, but I forgot to mention it:  MS played nice with Sony at the start, including them by name in a "we're all in it together" kind of moment.

We'll see if that has any effect on Sony's tone.  If they went the same route as last year, it might seem like bullying.  MS appears humbled, and Sony had better be careful not to stomp 'em too hard.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Sony is walking on glass today.

Battlefield PGA?

That Criterion game looks promising. Will be keeping an eye on that.

Wow, this EA conference is really making Microsoft's look heartfelt and honest by comparison. Everything here seems so artificial and choreographed.

I thought Sunset Overdrive looked really good. I'm still not sure how Sony let Insomniac develop this for MS.

Insomniac is a privately owned company, so they're free to do whatever they like. Those lucky bastards.

I'm surprised there wan't a Gears game announced.

Me too. That one had been heavily rumored.

I really have to give Microsoft props for doing the presentation right, specific games aside. They've really figured out what went wrong last time.

They didn't even mention "power of the cloud" once, which I'm truly thankful for. They treated gamers with respect.

So thank you, Microsoft!

Ori and Inside caught my eye more than anything.

Those were the two most interesting games in this presentation by far. Especially Ori. I would very much like to play them at some point.

Nothing here to make me even think about an Xbox.  Glad to see some stuff about cross platform games coming out. 

There were a few things that appealed to me here, but no system sellers (for me). A pretty good show for Microsoft nevertheless. They needed this.
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 05:58:34 PM
Never played any of the Crackdowns, but this is a much wanted game, isn't it?

The Division does look great, and I'm sure it'll be fun, but these fake "live" gameplay sessions are not exciting to me.

I was about to write the exact same thing.

Is the open world animal hunting the core of the gameplay, or just a side quest thing they're highlighting?  I really hope the former, mythical animal hunting with random other encounters?  Sounds really fun & unique.

The Witcher games and books have always been about grand politics, even if Geralt tries his best to avoid such things. Expect a Song of Ice and Fire-like narrative sprinkled with lots of monster hunting.
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 05:44:29 PM
Amazing! This is the first game they've showed off that looked like it was actual gameplay (and not just a script) too, except for that last bit. That's a good sign for the quality of the game itself.

That Ori game is the most pleasant surprise so far. I'd like to play that!
104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 05:12:43 PM
Who do they think they're kidding by putting random people with game controllers up on stage? Of course this isn't live gameplay!

Did we know Unity would be French Revolution?  I haven't been following it.

Yeah, I think that has been known for a while.

Looked good, but of course nothing like the preview video from a while back, and the demo was awfully scripted. Still looking forward to it, I guess.
107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 04:51:48 PM
Wow, Microsoft gets to show off Assassin's Creed Unity on their conference? That's an interesting twist.
108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 09, 2014, 04:45:56 PM
I was grinning at the great opening speech by Microsoft, but damn if that Call of Duty video didn't wipe that grin off me. What a dull way to start E3. At least it can only get better from here. Tongue

Would you ever tell someone "if you like Infamous, you're going to like Watch Dogs", or vice versa?

I find it particularly interesting how every single one of you has avoided answering this question, rhetorical or not. No, not interesting. Telling.

Well, that 2:30 Bethesda unnanounced title is no longer secret.  It's BattleCry

Well, there ends the hope I had for a new ES/Fallout game.  frown


Free to play is going to kill this hobby.

Nah, it's only going to kill the biggest (and dumbest) publishers, and good riddance.

I'm excited about today, even if the press conferences I'm most eager to see are all taking place in the middle of the night. But to hell with it, I'm probably going to get up (extremely) early to watch them anyway, and come in late for work. smile

The best thing is that I think everyone will be a winner this year, regardless of platform of choice. I can't see any of the major companies making any blunders on the level of last year's conferences for a variety of reasons, so it should all be good.

I just hope we'll see a minimum of timed exclusives or games that have become exclusive at a late stage of development. I don't think we'll get the latter, but I fear that we'll see a few cases of the former.

First of all, they are the same genre.  Period.  Deus Ex and Doom are not as close (though Deus Ex is the same genre as I:SS and WD).  Being in first person and shooting at things doesn't do it.  Diablo and Baldur's Gate are closer, but Diablo adds an action element that separates it from a traditional RPG.

I'm honestly not sure why this is bugging you so much.

Because of stuff like the uppermost quote. These are your opinions, but you're presenting them as if they were fact.

I hope there are some good surprises and trailers today!

There's no doubt about it. Sony, in particular, has been extremely secretive leading up to this year's E3. I'm expecting good things. In yesterday's Bonus Round on GameTrailers, Jeff Gerstmann also mentioned that the game he was the most excited about this E3 was one he couldn't talk about, which is promising.

That was Mortal Kombat X, which wasn't announced when they recorded those during judges week.   Jeff loves MK.

Ah, I didn't realize that.

But they play nothing alike! Not even slightly! That's why I mentioned those crazy examples above. If you are very selective in how you distill them (Deus Ex and Doom: First person shooter. Baldur's Gate and Diablo: RPG) their genres stop having any meaning at all. Would you ever tell someone "if you like Infamous, you're going to like Watch Dogs", or vice versa? Of course not! It's not a valid comparison. The similarities between the two games are superficial at best. They both take place in an open world, but if that's a genre, then it's worthless as a way to describe the game, and what's the bloody point then?
They play about as close to each other as Saints Row 3 did to Saints Row 4.

And? I haven't played either of those games, so I have no point of comparison. If you've got a point, feel free to expand upon it so that we're on the same level here.

What? Seriously? You're really going to argue that these two games are the same genre? I guess games like Deus Ex and Doom are the same genre too then, right? Or how about Baldur's Gate and Diablo. Totally the same thing, right? Or maybe the differences between them are just so small they don't matter?

*throws hands in air*

Knock yourselves out.

This game is nothing like Infamous though, so that's not really a good comparison when talking about quality. Watch Dogs is far more ambitious in what it's trying to do, while Infamous could focus on perfecting its core gameplay to a much larger degree.

I find the comparison valid.  Ambitious due to the hacking element?  Infamous is technically superior.

They are completely different genres!
