EEEwww thread.

Thats my way of telling you this is an E3 thread

In just a few days E3 will start, and we get a wonderfull look at hundreds of computer games we cant play yet :~

Microsoft will unvail their new Xbox (again), Nintendo will be showing us something starting with "Z" and ending with "Elda", and with any luck Sony will finaly stop playing it safe and do something interesting.
Not to mention numberious PC games like the very interesting looking "Spore".

This is a thread for posting lots of screenshots of games and going "owww" "ahhh" and "is that supposed to be next gen?!?!".

By the gods of all cheese, I can't what for just a little of the N5 (so much shorter to say). Did anybody see the "most-likely" fake video of the N5 depicted as a VR headset? Looked ok, and I like the name Nintendo ON or NintendON or Nintendo-ON. Seems like some simple future names:
360
PS3 (For god sake, make a new name!)
ON

PSX and PSP have been out for ages...PSX was a complete flop so it never made it to other regions.

I dought there will be much of the N5...its still a year away.

The video f*cking rocked...it was a fake, but a darn good one.
The fractualer castle idea was genius itself.

It did however, get worse towards the end.
And of course, VR is wayyyyy unlikely for another 2 generations. (not that it cant be done, but done for a reasonable cost chucks it out the window.


IMO, all the console names for the next gen suck

Check out Dreamfall, everybody!!! There's been a mix of reviews over the game, but it still looks to be one of the best action / adventure games we'll have this year!

That was the original name but it was changed before PS was released. And as DF said about the media centre PS2 thingy. Most people call the original PSX anyway so...

Ah, so PSX was announced last year then?

Regardless, I want to hear of MGS4. I know its not related to the recent trilogy though.

Of the 5 books I read by Orscon Scott, only 2 were good, one of which was really an extention of another (Ender's Game) more than a novel of its own.

The guy wrote one or two really great books, and since then everybody has been deeming him a sci-fi writting god.

Well, Lucas once released SW Trilogy, but that didn't stop him from making spin off crap in the future.

This is not to say that I believe Advent Rising's story sucks because Orson composed it. But, having glanced at the synopsis, the only really interesting, innovating, and original thing I spotted was Humans being portrayed as the typical ancient race. Everything else seems kinda dry.

I looked at the behind the scenes footage of the game, and it too seems to lack a bit in certain departments. Animation and action sequencing, for one, seems very chopy + not finished. A lot of the player's animation is really unrealistic and although some of the cut scenes look *very* colorful, I wish they had worked out some sequences, as some textures look to be consisting of a single, solid color.

Still, I'll look into this game in the future.

May I present...duh dah da da da Daaaann.....

The PS3


http://www.scee.presscentre.com/imag...etailsID=26315




Now excuse me while i laugh my arse off.


One good thing though:
Sony have got flash memory slots in their new console. And not just their shitty memory sticks either. Compact Flash.
+1 to Sony
-1 to Microsoft.

Come on Nintendo...Death to console specific memory cards eh?

Well I really like the console (despite that it looks like a printer) but I hate the controller, if possible, even more than the old one. The games look good, but seeing the controller, I can't imaging being able to control Killzone 2.

In other news, check Cubed3, they have a possible Zelda: Twilight Princess logo, which is cool and can make you believe it's the real title (reminds me of Princess Mononoke, with the wolfs and all)

EDIT ALSO! Check the IGN boards, because for some reason, they are the only place with all new (great looking) zelda screenshots and artwork!

By the gods it looks great, even the enemies, and good light effects!

Appereantly, we're gonna control a monkey with a special helmet, and ride a wolf, and out of the helmet, comes somekind of hand.

Stupid time zones....Bloody lazy Americans get out of bed - it's 2 am (10 am) and I want news dammit

Quote:
May 17, 2005 - New details regarding Nintendo's next-generation console, codenamed Revolution, have started to sprinkle onto the Internet. The machine, which will be revealed during Nintendo's pre-E3 2005 show on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, will sport a slick, black design and a front blue light.

Revolution will be "two-to-three times more powerful than GameCube," according to Nintendo, which also acknowledges that the next-generation race isn't solely about new technologies. By contrast, Microsoft's Xbox 360 console is 13-15 times more powerful than the first, according to the publisher. And Sony says it's PlayStation 3 is roughly 35 times more powerful than PlayStation 2. Nintendo also revealed that using Revolution's new Wi-Fi connection, gamers would be able to go online to a free gamer-matching service. Interestingly, in a move similar to Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade service, Revolution users will be able to download classic and new Nintendo games over the Internet. Nintendo cited such examples as Donkey Kong and Super Mario Sunshine, which suggests that Revolutionaries could have access to games for all the publisher's previous consoles.

Who gives a toss what it looks like. I just watched the PS3 tech demos - they are absolutely amazing!!! If the report above is true and Revolution is onl 2-3x more powerful than GC - Nintendo are really gonna have their work cut out. I'd buy a PS3 for the tech demos

Well, here it is; The Nintendo Revolution

Certainly going with a 2001 style look.
Very small too.

Id take the 2-3 more times powerfull with a pinch of salt...traditionaly Nintendo has been the only company to underplay their hardware abilitys. (at least with the N64 and Gamecube they published polygon statistic that were beaten by many third companys in games).
The idea that something can be "X" times more powerfull is nonsense anyway...its like going back to the days where everyone thought 16bit things where twice as good as 8bit things

As for tech demos...blah.
Never trust them.
Nothing came close to the PS2's near-photorealistic spinning head demo that sony showed off before its launch.

The PS3 will have stunning graphics, but Im not convienced the average game graphics between Xbox2,N5 and PS3 will be different.
