So, I was wrong, yesterday should’ve been 4 out of 12… oh well…

So today I had english, another one of those exams that aren’t fun to look at. This was not fun at all. Admitedly, I think I passed… which is good. I loved the last question really going deep and gaying out on this view from my window and kinda going into how “Urban Devevlopement” is slowly encroaching into my perfect view. Something like that, I hope I can get the paper back so I can copy it out, I actually loved that entry I did… Sad to see it go.

Well, because it was 11am and I had no other exams, I went home… I then lazed about the house, playing pokemon and other things… then I guess it was time for…

*cough*

E3 GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!! FO SHIZZZLE MO FO!!!!!!!!!!

So, it started with the Nintendo Conference where I was expecting all sorts of add-ons and “games”.  It started off slow, really showing how there is the Wii Fit Plus… so you can go and buy a NEW WiiFit for EVEN MORE money, as well as the release AGAIN of the Motion Plus… which we’d seen last year… guess it was to show that they have mastered it now? There was the most HIGHlarious bit… I think it was called the Vitality Sensor. It is basically, a thing that measures the pulse in your finger… to tell you probably when to breath and when you die… seeing as the Wii now makes sure you never have to look away from the screen again.

It picked up when they got onto actual DS games, these including A new Super Mario and Luigi game, which rock. The Kingdom Hearts DS game, that had STUNNING visuals for a DS game, I mean… really… and Golden Sun for the DS! Oh, towards the beginning Nintendo showed off their first cash cow… Mario, in how they “remade” the New Super Mario Bros DS thing… onto the Wii, where the only difference is now you can get 4 players at once for a real CLUSTER FUCK and a propeller power… that makes you look like you are special needs in a unitard…

There was a quick mention  of another cash cow… The Legend of Zelda. I believe there is another game with Toon link to be coming out called something like the Phantom Rail or something, I’ll get it because the DS games are good enough to pass the time. There was not much other than an image for this.

Then they actually started to have their games for the Wii… their ACTUAL games. They had two rail shooters, Dead Space and a Resident Evil one. There was Super Mario Galaxy 2 (which I guessed and that Ben then later revealed was on the internet for some time) and a kick arse Metroid game, that seemed to swap between the classic side scrolling (ish) view to the FPS view… it looked pretty insane with full motion videos and a guy that looked like Mustang. When I saw this it made me think about how each fanboy group has at least one female to imagine as their bride… Nintendo would be Samus, Final Fantasy would be Tifa, Zelda would be… Zelda… then those are the main Fan boy groups… I could go into anime, but ALL anime has at least one character with boobs bigger than her head… even pokemon… not as much in pokemon, but still as big as head…

That was about it for the Nintendo… I hate Miss Dunaway or w/e she is always annoying, Reggie is much better…

Then it was time for some Sony action. This had a VERY slow start, with the new PSP. The PSP Go… Sony’s main plan for the day was not to mention games, just to have random clips in a large clipshow FLASH BY so you can guess what is going to come… They spent AGES on the PSP Go… They had MAG, which was VERY impressive, with the amount of players… 246 i believe… The main problem is, you can barely find 6 people on Halo 3 (at times) let alone 245… there was a game which I think was called Uncharted which looked prettyfull…

I think some other stuff was shown, but none of it was important because… FINAL FANTASY 13 F0074G3! The most of the footage they had looked like a film trailer… until they got to actual gameplay. It looked very impressive as well, don’t like the main character… very Ugly… it does look pretty awesome though. That was not all though… Also that was very hush hush, or under a code name… FINAL FANTASY 14!!!!!! This is the new online game that will be out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360… there is a chance of Mac and Linux as well… it looked pretty tasty…

Sony also showed off their motion sensor stuff, that is a stick with a glowing ball on it (which is what the sensor picks up) which is made by the same people as the Eyetoy (instant fail?) and was apparently being worked on for YEARS… to be honest, when they were first showing it off, with all these things to cover it… it was VERY eye toy and didn’t look that good… the drawing/painting bit was quite cool, but I think the Project Natal Painting was MUCH better… he showed off how it can be used for FPS (even if you didn’t notice it) RTS (even the ones where you control units yourself). Then it went into how it can be used in a more RPG sort of game. This, however, required two sticks, one for each arm… oh… really (looks like they jumped in Nintendo’s bandwagon)). This was quite good, when he was swinging the sword, shield, arrow shooting, shuriken throwing… the main problem with throwing is that there is no REAL depth perception… and also you are never sure if you are throwing it AT them because of the camera…

Sony also showed off from the people that made Little Big Planet, a VERY impressive racer (that Nathan wont get due to the lack of the words, “First”, “person”, “shooter”, “War”… it was fully cutomizable, which was the least to be expected from LBP team . Cars can be as well. We were also shown the VERY easy to use track builder that seemed to be able to make very professional looking tracks with ease/

The last thing (that I can remember) was God of War 3. This was teh same sort of angry walking through the joint and stabbing everything that looks at you with a funny glance and then ripping off their own horn and then stabbing it through their face in a quick time event (actually happened) looked pretty…

OH! Two more games that I remembered… one being The Last Guardian… which was an odd game, it showed what looked like a cell shaded child running through a detailed place, with a proper detailed thing chasing him, this was the same throughout, a very bright coloured child in a dark life like world… not much could really be gotten AT ALL from this…

Then, of course, there was Assasins Creed 2 (should it be Assasin’s?). . This had some prettyful graphics, a new look that was quite cool, and what appeared to be two daggers of hidden stab you in the face via my wrist… there were even smoke bombs, it looked very good, I hope it is on 360…

That is all that comes to mind… so yeah…

    Gah, some of your ignorance is insulting.
    NSMBWii is said to be fun, even by non-believers.
    It’s Spirit Tracks, foo’, and it was announced at GDC last year.
    If you think that the only womanizing fanboy groups are Nintendo, FF and Zelda, go trawl deviantArt quickly. Yeah. There’s probably Blu-ray woman porn somewhere.
    MAG has 256 players, and will be squad-based.
    There are also some hilarious stories of people jizzing over FFXIV for a whole minute and 28 seconds until the ‘Online’ subtitle shows up, and then people get REAL pissed about it. And I can’t believe that you nearly forgot about The Last Guardian.
    So after this year’s E3, it looks like the number of good PS3 exclusives may finally exceed 10.
    It’s not like I enjoy picking holes in your blogs, or anything.
