I’ll be honest, I wasn’t attracted to Amiibos before. I can understand that this is Nintendo’s response to Activision’s SkyLanders and Disney’s Infinity toy lines. Nintendo incorporated NFC into the Nintendo WiiU gamepad, and originally UbiSoft were going to have their own line of NFC based toys for their RayMan Legends game for the WiiU. But on launch Nintendo didn’t have the software ready on time for the NFC sensor, and Ubisoft delayed the Rayman game. That however didn’t stop Nintendo from learning a thing or two from the market and making their own set of toys for the Smash Bros game. Then making them compatible with other Nintendo titles later on.
I might not understand the Amiibo toys, but that doesn’t mean I never had any action figures. As a kid I had He-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and GI Joe toys. Eventually I stopped getting into them, and they we’re left at my grandparents house where my younger cousins would play with them. Continue reading →
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’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 →
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)
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 😛
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.
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!
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!
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.
