E3 2012
« on: June 05, 2012, 02:32:53 AM »
This is the only thing worth watching so far:

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2012-watch-dogs/731081)

First of all, the game looks pretty fantastic from all angles, the sci-fi/modern setting, the gameplay hook they nail in the final seconds, which I won't spoil here and the visuals. These visuals, I'm pretty sure this is the coolest stunt I've seen at an E3 before. Judging by the look of the game's environments, the lighting, cloth effects, it's gotta be running on next-gen hardware, which would make this the first true unveiling of a next-gen game.

Update: Ubisoft says it's a 360/PS3/PC title. But I still don't see how that's possible. The demo must be running on a high-end PC, with a console version that'll be hacked to pieces.

Not too surprising. It was the same last year.

Also regarding tomorrow's Nintendo show, GTA V hasn't been showcased yet at either MS or Sony's show. Wonder if it'll make a splash at Nintendo's show, and if so, what that means.

Only thing worth watching so far? What about the WonderBook Walter??

Honestly though Sony's conference was a bit strange, I'm excited forThe Last of Us though.

Actually I wasn't able to watch Sony's show live. I just caught the trailers afterwards. Last of Us and Tomb Raider were the highlights for me. Pretty sure Watch Dogs was only shown at Ubisoft's presentation.

Not much shown at EA's show.

TGS 2012  :carcus:

As I said in the podcast, Nintendo's show tomorrow is the big one for me. I've actually arranged to take an extended lunch break so I can catch it live.  :daiba:

The realism/graphics makes me think back to my first impressions of Heavy Rain. It looks like playable movie.

Wow, looks awesome. Didn't expect anything of that caliber from them.

I don't know, I mean they've got some pretty neat stuff running on X360/PS3 in the past. There might be some downgrading but I think they can do it.

I wouldn't count on it. Rockstar has had little to no presence at e3 since 2005. I doubt they will let Nintendo spill the beans on GTAV when they can have all the limelight to themselves at a later date.

Also, Watch Dogs looks great! For the security professionals out there, it looks like CISSP: The Game =/

Looks heavily scripted. It's pretty to watch though.
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk

Of course it's scriptedóit's a game demo. But it all looked pretty plausible to me that it could go down like that in-game. Nothing jumped out at me as unrealistically timed, except for the traffic signal timing, but even that looked like it could be done with the right eye.

For me the only E3 2012 games Promoted that I'm even interested in are: Assassins Creed III , Beyond 2 Souls, Lords of Shadow 2 , and Transformers : Fall of Cybertron.

Nintendo conference was quite disappointing. Overall not a very exciting E3 for me. Hope the 3DS show tomorrow has better stuff.

Yeah, that was a huge disappointment... Nothing big announced at all. As one person said, the whole show was flaccid.

Did you decide that before the show started?  :slan:

I based my decision off of the E3 Trailers released for Titles I'm currently
invested in and Titles that I will invest in.

I didn't mind this E3 at all.  Sony seem to have finally stopped shoving down people's throat with the 3D stick.  And toned down with the Move ordeal.  Microsoft's conference?  Meh, don't give two shits about Halo.  But there were some entertaining things.  I haven't seen Nintendo's yet.  I'm waiting to get out of work and tune in the DVR.  But I have to say that I loved most of the games graphics.  Both Microsoft and Sony's tittles look pretty darn good to me.  Watch Dog and Beyond were the two games I will be keeping a close eye.

Castlevania: Mirror of Fate demo walkthrough: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2012-castlevania-mirror/731742

Narrator says there will be four playable characters in total, including Alucard.  :beast:

I was skeptical, but now that I've seen it in action for more than 5 seconds (thanks, Nintendo), I actually think it looks quite good.

Due out in the fall.

Nice to see that Nintendo and Bob Hoskins have moved beyond the Super Mario Bros. movie to associate like this.

I was skeptical, but now that I've seen it in action for more than 5 seconds (thanks, Nintendo), I actually think it looks quite good.

At first glance I actually didn't like the visual style, but came around on the second pass.

Whoa, that Watch Dogs trailer is pretty fantastic. I agree, this does have a Heavy Rain atmosphere to it.

Anyone else severely let down by the 3DS show last night? I thought he said there would be some surprises.. they mostly talked in detail about the titles they revealed at the Nintendo conference earlier.. 3 Mario related games really? No third party love for Monster Hunter? Fire Emblem? Dragon Quest Monsters? All of which are already out in Japan. I.am.disappoint

I think in the end this E3 was pretty damn lackluster, Wii U needed more games to show off, less social networking and smart phone related shit. Can't wait for The Last Guardian at TGS!

Didn't even watch it. Definitely not an E3 that'll go down in history.

This E3 seemed anemic to me, though I'm sure the next one is going to be absolute insanity with Sony and Microsoft's next big console reveals (that's got to be what happens.) Speaking of, I'm pretty damn sure Watch Dogs isn't going to come out on this generation of hardware, and I'll eat my shoe if it does.

Oh well, bad E3, not even an entertaining disaster like most of them. Just... pretty boring, really.

Yeah, it was disappointing in all respects. Like I said in the last podcast, I look forward to both the big reveals AND the embarrassing disasters at shows like this. And I got neither. There was no "One Meeleeon Troops" or "$599 US Dollars." What I got was "Yes, my body was ready!" (which even though I laughed at this, it was so scripted that the humor died the moment it was served).
