ATTN: Gamers! E3 2010 is wrapping up! (Coverage inside!)

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Delnoir, Jun 17, 2010.

  1. Well, for those of you who didn't know, the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010 is winding down in its last day as I type this. I can't really know if anyone else has been keeping up on coverage of this annual video game press conference, but let me touch on a few things.

    A new Donkey Kong Country from Retro Studios, the brains behind the Metroid Prime series!
    New Fallout New Vegas footage!
    Kirby returns to the Wii as does Kid Icarus!
    Star Wars: The Old Republic has a new trailer!
    Some insight to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword!
    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Multiplayer and single player aspects discussed!
    Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds demo!
    Little Big Planet 2!
    Final Fantasy XIV (Its an MMO mind you)!
    Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep!

    The scary part? I'm only scratching the surface of this video game goliath. If you want to take a look at Gamespot's coverage of the CONSTANTLY released news on all the latest games and updates on ones you might already be aware of!

    Consider this the E3 discussion thread.
  2. I don't think my internet will handle gamespot's advertisement bombardment tactics.

    So just spill the beans if there's any news on MGS: Rising & Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

  3. *Is so happy right now*

    I was really hoping they'd make Rising a slasher.

    And LoS looks like it's becoming a longer & longer game.
  4. In all honesty, I couldn't care less about Zelda. They kept hinting that this was going to be a departure from the tropes of the old games (or as I like to put it, the same game they've been updating and re-releasing for a couple decades now), but as is Nintendo's tendancy, they've gone for the lazy option. Though the Kirby game is a step in the right direction, I will admit.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood looks interesting, however. I was skeptical when they announced multiplayer for the series, but they're taking a unique approach to it. Just hope it actually plays well. I'm already psyched about New Vegas, it must be said. And I'm thinking The Old Republic may well be the first MMO I'll ever really get into.

    Now, Kinect. It's Microsoft trying to break Nintendo's hold on the casual gamer market, but hell, it might just fucking work. They have a solid line-up and the technology's got a lot of possibilities. Sorta like the Wii at the start.

    Hopefully Microsoft won't fuck it up like Nintendo did.
  5. Eh, the Wii overall is good.

    Personally looking forward to Fable three. Kirby sounds cool, and Legend of Zelda games have a habit of being good.

    3ds sounds kinda like the future has started jumping into real life again.

    In all likelyhood the only one I may end up spending money on would be Fable 3 (damn it coming out just after my birthday!)
  6. fable three fothermuckers.

    oh,a dn lets not forget the space marine 3rd person game.

    that will smash and rip! tear everything
  7. Ah, over the course of the last three years, my reaction has gone from, "OH BOY! E3!" down to a horror filled, "OH GOD NO, E3."

    This one was no different. Time for a new hobby.
  8. The press conferences this year were so underwhelming (or just made me want to find the nearest baby and punch it in the face, in the case of Microsoft's). O_o Which is strange, 'cause the actual games that were either debuted, or were shown looked fantastic.

    Even Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 looked like a blast, after you get past the initial revulsion at Fatshark's blasphemous inclusion of jumping into the game.
  9. Jumping? In Bionic Commando?

    Show Spoiler
  10. Space Marine better have multiplayer. if so, expect minimal sleep, and maximum heretic slaughtering.
  11. *has extreme MANLY reactions to Lords of Shadow, Harmony of Despair and MGS: Rising trailers*

    Ah~. . .
  12. Chaos if you ever read this Metroid Other M is actually suppose to tie up the gap between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. Other M is really not part of prime at all *well I got this info a few weeks ago now so not sure if you already herd or not, or if someone else posted about it... oh well should stop thinking now* anyway From what I herd is that Metroid Other M is suppose to come out on August 31st 2010 *I know it isn't needed but I put the year in anyway.*
  13. Mmm delicious Wii ripoffs~
  14. Demi | Helen's Room ===> Dining Hall Kitchen

    Interactions: Helen @KatSea

    Can't say that I didn't expect that reaction.

    I love Helen to death--there's no fucking question about that--but I'm starting to realize just how...difficult it must be for her to realize how beautiful she is. It sucks ass but...meh, I guess I can understand that struggle. I'm pretty sure if some random person came up and complimented my looks, I'd instantly think the fucker had some sort of motive, like he was planning to mug me or some shit. Hell, even if a friend (whoa...the fact that I fucking have one now) said something nice about my looks, I'd wave it off, maybe even call bullshit.

    So, I don't give Helen shit about it. In the end, I got what I wanted--we can both feel awkward now. Ain't no way in hell I'm going feel all embarrassed and shit on my own. I scratch my head and yawn. "Yeah, well...that might be how ya feel, but I personally think you've got a pretty good smile. Wouldn't bother memorizing it if it wasn't special." I shrug. "It's whatever though."

    I don't even flinch when Helen kisses her hand and pats my cheek again--I've gotten used to it. I simply grin in response; before I have a chance to do the same to her, she asks if I'm feeling better. I chuckle and shake my head.

    "I already told ya, Chipmunk. If you're happy, I'm happy. All that goofy laughing you've been doing? Hell, might as well call me a whole new damn woman now."

    I don't even try to hide the excitement on my face when Cotton Ball offers to get more hot chocolate. Fuck yes--might as well since I know I'm not going back to sleep anytime soon. That...stupid episode has me shaken up, though I refuse to show it. gotta stay happy for Helen, dammit! I shoot to my feet and look at Helen blankly, thinking about my next move...



    I heft her up and into a half-hug, half-carry sort of embrace and start heading out of Helen's room and down the hall for the kitchen.

    "You know I'm always down for some hot chocolate," I mumble casually, holding back a grin as I march along. I know that I thickened up her bones earlier, which makes her heavier and shit, but I'm still gonna pick her up whenever I can. What can I say? It's fun as hell.

  15. Hellz yeah.

    Castlevania co-ops!

  17. what's betting they fuck castlevania up? isn't Hideo Kojima on the payroll for it?

    expect longer-than-gameplay-time-length cutscenes to break up the good adventuring action!
  18. He's the executive producer, and aside from some creative input (he's responsible for Gabriel not looking like some medieval Kratos), he isn't all that involved in the game.
  19. I'm thankful Gabriel doesn't resemble Kratos or any of the STEROID heroes they've had lately that look like walking fridges. It just looks silly to me.
