Post E3 2014 Analysis.

e3_logo

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

PacMan joins Smash Bros.

pac1

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.

pac3

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

E3 Live Blog Part 3 (Nintendo Digital Event)

Nintendo-Digital-Event

In a few hours. Nintendo will hold their “Digital Event”, a live stream from Nintendo of America, rather than an actual E3 Press conference. Which to be honest is a smart idea considering that in the last few years the number of people attending E3 has slowly dropped. not to mention the large amount of people (like myself) watching these E3 press shows over the internet. Even Ubisoft knew about it when they had the Rabbids to remind you to keep you bandwidth optimal!

So let me make a list of what I would “like” to hear from Nintendo today.

  • Is Mario Maker real?
  • Will you be showing of the “Real” Zelda sequel, or just Zelda Dynasty Warriors?
  • What other key franchises will appear on Wii U? (F Zero, Metroid, Kirby, Excite Bike)
  • What’s Nintendo’s strategy on keeping the Wii U relevant?
  • Will Nondescript action figure ever get a game of his own? (LOLS)
  • Who are the last few characters to be seen in the Smash Bros for WiiU/3DS ?
  • What will Reggie Fils Amech do next!?

The Live Blog will begin at 9:00 AM PDT, 5:00 PM BST below when the digital event starts. Continue reading

E3 Live Blog part 2!

e3_logo

Okie doke. To keep thing chronological, and the E3 Live Blog on the top of blog. I’m making a “Part 2” so that I don’t have to do any weird moving these around with the blog article about getting into the BattleField Hardline Beta.

Moving along, we have two more conferences left today. Ubisoft’s and Sony’s!

Hopefully Ubisoft won’t have any douchey hosts, and Sony will give me a better reason to own a PS4 other than FinalFantasy XV.

Live Blog will begin at 11:00PM BST (3:00M PDT) below… (Sorry I got the times wrong, they’re now corrected)

E3 Live Blog

In a few hours time, Microsoft will begin the set of press conferences today; followed by EA, Ubisoft, and Sony. Nintendo’s Digital conference will be tomorrow. What will they show off today? Here’s a list of thing I want to hear from each conference, though personal I doubt it’ll happen! lol 😛

Microsoft

  • Free XBox Live, or at least a cheaper service for casual online players.
  • More variety of genre’s than just FPS games.
  • A smaller and cheaper XBOne!
  • The next Call of Duty game is based on World War 1.

EA

  • Actually admit that Origin was a terrible idea. OK a little harsh, but come on, everyone uses Steam and GOG these days!
  • Announce a new James Pond game, I’m waiting guys…
  • Create a Fifa or Madden game that is based on an annual subscription so that a new version of the same game isn’t released each year!

Ubisoft

  • What does the next gen Ray Man look like?
  • Admit that Uplay was a terrible idea and why it’s screwing up Watch_Dogs on the PC.
  • Please have a guest that doesn’t douche up the conference!

Sony

  • Final Fantasy XV Gameplay.
  • Demon’s Souls II announcement.
  • WHERE’S LAST GUARDIAN!!!???  *Hulk Rage*
  • Backward compatibility of some kind on the PS4?

Anyway, that’s my wishful for E3, the live blog will begin below at 9am Pacific standard time.

Nintendo E3 Rumour time!

E3 Stuff Part 5 “It’s a me, Nintendo!”

E3

 

Due to the fact that I have a full time job, and I was unaware of the E3 dates, I totally missed the 3PM Nintendo E3 conference. However I was able to sneak a few times out of my manager’s field of view to skim-read live blogs talking about the Nintendo Direct show. And Here it goes… Continue reading
