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.

Nintendo’s E3 2011

Thank god Nintendo’s conference wasn’t as late as Sony’s. Well late or early depending where you live. The Nintendo 3DS seems to be getting a heap of good games. Like Luigi’s Mansion 2, Super Mario 3D, just to name some really caught my attention. So I’m finally starting to feel a bit of an urge to get one, but I’ll probably wait until the price falls a bit. Or try to import one, still expensive here in Sweden.

Then we had Nintendos reveal of their new home console, with the name Wii U… I would have preferred Wii HD, Wii 2 over this name. But best I liked when it was rumored to be called Nintendo Stream. Aside from the name it look really nice, cool you are not bund by a tv. Perfect for those moments when nature calls. ;D
Well I am looking forward to get more info, since Wii U seems really interesting. And props to Nintendo for getting so many third party publishers to make games for it. I think its awesome that games like Darksiders II and Batman Arkham City will be available on this console.

Sony’s E3 2011

Just finished watching Sony’s E3 conferance. And I’m tired as hell now. I’m not used to be up this late. But either way it was pretty okay, was hoping for more stuff actually. But Uncharted 3 and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time where nice! And I got more interested in the Playstation Vita, their new portble console.
I’m also getting the God of War Origins Collection. All in all a pretty goof show, its gonna be interesting to watch Nintendos show later today.
But damn! I really need to start saving for a PSVita! I really need to play Uncharted Golden Abyss.

My thoughts of E3 2010

First out of the big three in this years E3 (perhaps they are first every year, I don’t know…). Either way, they where first out and they didn’t really have anything to show that made me excited. They had a whole bunch of games and stuff to show that had to do with Kinect. Ya, know. The camera “controller” that was called Natal before. But as I said there where really nothing that caught my interest a bit of a shame, well at least I’m really liking their redesign of the Xbox 360. It cools very cool and if it works better than the current consoles than that’s great!
I also thought Microsoft’s show was pretty boring, it felt very “stiff” somehow. Maybe its just an impression I got. Oh, yeah. I almost forgot the video that was shown of Metal Gear Solid: Rising was damn cool!

Well this was a pretty big surprise for me personally. I never thought I would be interested in something Nintendo would show. Don’t get my wrong I love Nintendo and I always will, but I haven’t really been interested in the stuff they’ve done for the past years. Don’t know why, but that’s how it was.
Anyway, I thought Nintendo had the best show. They showed a bunch of new stuff, like the new Legend of Zelda game. But the biggest and best thing on the show (IMO) was the unveiling of Nintendo 3DS, the successor to the DS. They showed a new Kid Icarus game that looks great! And they seem to be announcing things for the console the whole time. You’ll have to find out what for yourselves. I’m greatly interested in the 3DS.

The show I before hand was hoping to get the best things out of. Well, turns out I was dead wrong. There where almost nothing that interested me here. They talked a hell a lot about MOVE and didn’t really show anything new. Well… Portal 2 and Twisted Metal. But I care for neither, so I guess Heroes on The Move was the game that interested me the most together with The Sly Collection. Heroes on The Move seems to be an action/adventure game that finally puts some of Sony’s “mascots” in the same game, Jak, Ratchet and Sly all together with there sidekicks. And The Sly Collection is the three Sly Cooper games remastered for the PS3 in HD and 3D. I just feel disappointed I was hoping for a bit more.
The part where Kevin Butler enters, where pretty good.

So thanks for reading my thoughts of this years E3 with the big three. What did you think about it? What did you love and hate?
