OK, I’ve had my bit of fun watching all the E3 conferences and shows. It’s not time to get to work and talk about the good and bad things about this year’s show.

Microsoft

Microsoft’s show was better this year compared to last year, it was fortunate that it wasn’t all to do with Sports and TV! Typically Microsoft and the XBox being the “First Person Shooter” console, they had to show off the next Call of Duty game, Advanced Warfare, pretty much like Modern Warfare, but now more sci-fi with more drones and flashy lights on body armour. As you might tell I don’t give a damn about the COD series, and personally I wish that Activision would concentrate on something else for a change!

After seeing Forza Horizon 2 and Witcher 3, I saw a game that I kinda knew about through from fake marketing of an energy drink called Overdrive. The game is called “Sunset Overdrive”, and the video starts off being a joke to other FPS games having to take cover behind things and having a character, who’s a bit doucheir than your typical douche-bag, destroy the enemy that trying to attack said “Call of Duty”-like soldier before doucey-Mc-DouceMeister explains his game, and looking at the gameplay it looks really cool. Imagine a third person contra game, but being able to do Sonic the Hedgehog like tricks such as grind rails and run up walls, then mix it up with Left 4 Dead style Co-op where you take out mutants who are simply people who have been drinking the Overdrive energy drink. It’s nice to see some colour in an XBox game! It’s just a shame that this is an XBox One exclusive title. Continue reading

Yup, even though Namco denied it before, PacMan was announced at the Nintendo Round table conference at E3 and was announced publicly afterwards.

He’s pretty much as I thought he would be in the game. But he can summon sprites from other Namco games like Galaxian, Xevious, Bosconian, Mappy and the PacMan ghosts.

On the WiiU, PacMan’s level is a scrolling PacLand stage.

On the 3DS, PacMac’s level is a procedurally generated PacMac maze.

Nintendo E3 Rumour time!

E3 will be next week, and to be honest I’m not too excited about it. If there’s anything to be excited about, I don’t know about it yet. However Twitter user @9_volt88 posted a rather interesting image…
