E3 2014 in a few weeks!

Oh, my aching body! Man I’m beat. My muscles hurt everywhere! Well at least I’m still going to the gym, won’t quit that easily. But man, it sure hurts. But it’s like they say; Pain is weakness, leaving the body. Got to keep fighting, but I enjoy it. Yeah, I’m going to stop nagging about the gym now.

Soon the event of the year for me is here! Well, this is mostly true. Watching E3 live has become a tradition for me, I’ve been doing it a couple of years now and I’ll continue to do so. It will begin on June 9th, 18:00 in Swedish time. As I’ve mentioned in past posts, I can’t remember AM or PM. You’ll have to find the time for your country on your own, sorry.
I’m really looking forward to this years E3 for various reasons, I’m hoping Microsoft is brining something great! At least it will be more enjoyable without Don Mattrick, I really couldn’t stand that guy. He has this creepy face and looks like he has zero confidence. Phil Spencer seems like he is on the right track and hopefully will bring a bunch of good stuff. Hopefully it will be better than last year, which in my opinion was just terrible.

Sony is doing good with the PlayStation 4 right now and I’m very excited to see what they’ll reveal. I’d love to get some JRPG’s announced. Perhaps we’ll have to wait for Tokyo Game Show for that, but I’m still hoping. Absolutely nothing wrong with dreaming. I hope they won’t grow arrogant, like they have been in the past. I like this new Sony and I hope they keep delivering. Sadly we won’t be seeing Jack Tretton on the Sony stage this year, since he has left the company. I really enjoyed hearing him speak, so its going to be interesting to see who will replace him.

But I’m most looking forward to Nintendo, I want to see what they bring to the table. I really want them to take revenge and get back in the top. Don’t get me wrong, they make great games! But it would be nice if more people made games for the Wii U and I sure hope they can turn it around and be more successful. I want to see more of ”X” and perhaps they’ll reveal the real name of the game, will probably be ”Xeno” something. Hopefully we can get a first glimpse at The Legend of Zelda U and other great Nintendo games.
I enjoy it that Nintendo is starting to take a more humors approach to themselves, like you can see in Tomodachi Life Direct and the new Mega64 video. Reggie is a pretty fun guy after all! ;) Look them up, you’ll probably not regret it.

E3 2012: Sony

And now Sony’s show is over too. Just like Microsoft it was a disappointment, ugh. It wasn’t as boring as Microsoft, but nothing new was really shown. Okay they showed Beyond from Quantic Dream and it looks pretty great. But the whole Wonderbook thing for Playstation Move? Not interested at all. No price cuts for the PS Vita that many was expecting, nothing really new announced for Vita either…

So far this E3 has been rather disappointing. A shame really, since I usually enjoy Sony’s shows. The Last of Us looks great too, but honestly I was expecting more. A few secret games or a game announcement that would make you go completely gaga. Yeah, perhaps it’s just me expecting too much… My hope now entirely lies at Nintendo’s mercy! I’m really hoping they’ll bring a few bombs tomorrow/later today. But since they are on E3 with a whole new console, I think I’m going to get what I want. Something new, something unannounced.

E3 2012: Microsoft

Now Microsofts E3 press conference is over and I can only say, thank god. That was one boring as show. Seriously, it was just about as bad as their conference they had last year. And the ”boss” Dan or what his name was, he looks so lost on stage. Like he doesn’t know how to move or speak, and he feels so awkward…
I was really hoping they would have shown something from their new console. The best things in their conference was Splinter Cell that looked really awesome and that comes from someone who doesn’t like the series very much. But I can definitely see myself playing the new one.

And the other stuff I really enjoyed was Tomb Raider, it looks great. And of course it was fun to see the creators of South Park there and making fun of Kinect and Smartglass. Just to be clear, I do not hate Microsoft in anyway. It was just a boring show they put on. With a performance from Usher who proved to me that he couldn’t sing. If you like Halo and Call of Duty I hope you could get something out of this. I’m hoping Sony and Nintendo will deliver something that speaks to me more.
