EEE 2013 (Video game Expo thread)

So, like most years, heres a E3 thread.

Being doing this for a few years now , but I must admit this time it all feels a bit "meh".

Nintendos already got the (currently) underwealming WiiU, Microsoft's pretty much got a PR disaster with their "XBone".....its pretty much Sony's generation to lose console wise.

PC wise (so far) seems more of the same. A new Deus Ex on the horizon is probably going to be great....but short of Value discovering the number 3 I really cant see much to get excited over.

Still, Microsoft's conference is in a few hours, and maybe they will show some interesting games.

thoughts?

A bit "Meh"???

With 2 new consoles on the horizon?? And a third one that needs new and better games asap? Not "Meh" at all, not for me, at least.

New console cycles are always interesting.

The future of great franchises (new exclusive titles for the new platforms or multiple versions for everyone?), new games alltogether, and the perspective of learning a bit more about Big Broth---Kinect 2.0 and what the PS4 have to offer.

I can't wait


And of course, Call of Duty, Need for Speed, FIFA and all the regulars.

Your really not skeptical about the Xbone?
Online required every 24 hours? No trading of games or second hand? Kinect always on*?

*combined with the recent NSA storys and considering Microsoft is a US company this is very worrying.

I admit on a technical level a new Kinect is interesting, but console wise it all seems bad news so far.

Buying the new XBox one sounds a bad idea to me. They added too many restrictions to the players (as you said above) and there are probably not going to be many titles I enjoy to play anytime soon, so I rather stick with my PC for a few more months after the release of the new consoles, than Maybe think about buying 'em.

The only interesting XBox-one game so far is "Project Spark"
Not much details, but seems a action-adventure game "thing" where people make their own content for it.

Only interested in Nintendo's conference, to be honest. Already got a WiiU 'cause it was ultra discounted, otherwise I would have waited for the gaems to come out. But I always knew I was gonna buy it eventually. I'm a "PC + Nintendo console" kind of guy when it comes to satisfying my gaming needs.

AAANYWAY. I'm going to miss Ninty's conference due to a university exam, sucks but oh well. I won't die for waiting a couple of hours...
In particular I'm very curious about the next smash bros game. With emphasis on "curious"... not "hyped" yet. Brawl was a fine game if taken individually but a step in the wrong direction if you compare it to its predecessor, so I'm reserving my judgement and hype until we know what's the plan for the new one, with the whole 3DS-WiiU cross compatibility and Namco Bandai on board in the development team.

well, Nintendos "conference" is tomorrow.
But its not a conference, its a Nintendo Direct delivered straight to 3DS's and WiiU's.

Me too.
But given I got, like, 10 years of games as a backlog, I can wait

Won't there be anything about the Nvidia handheld ?

The new Xbox has that many restrictions ?! I really hope it will be a huge fail, I don't like that kind of closed attitude...
I'm curious about that new Zelda game aswell

Yes, although I suspect Nintendo will be making a big deal out of its Wind Waker remake first.

Or did you mean Link To The Past 2? I'd guess that will be playable soon.

things not to do in this life
*Buy an xbox one.

They're going to kill the second-hand market. I don't see how that is a wise decision... unless games start to cost less. Much less.

...Sony had me until they snuck in their forced paid online model as mandatory for multiplayer gaming. Seriously, they had knocked it out of the park. Then all the air went out of the conference for me. Oh well. I needed a new PC anyways. Most of my friends had already migrated to Steam.

I'm sorry but all the new consoles sound like total sh*t. Systems started going downhill after the Gamecube, PS2 and XBOX era. Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft are all trying WAY to hard now to come out with something good that everything they release now is crap.

Ill stick to my N64 thank you.

Gee, I hope not. I'd be seriously pissed off if they dedicated more than a minute talking about a REMAKE while the WiiU is starving for original content. (no offense to Wind Waker)
Which makes me realize, the WiiU really is the 3DS all over again. Game drought during the first year of life, trying to fill the void with remakes...
Sheesh, you'd think they learned the lesson the first time around.
Oh well, because of their weird decisions I've been able to get both the 3DS and WiiU after they got their price prematurely cut by one third so I'm not complaining, just perplexed.

Yes, they released way too soon. They should have waited to have more games + they could have upped the specs for the same price. Or made a better Wiimote.

Anyway, the Xbox one was a great marketing stuntby Sony I thought.

ye microsoft and nintendo seem to have pretty much fucked up any chances of winning the console wars this time around. I am rather taken a back by how well thought out and presented sony has played their case so far, for the ps4. Now they just need to finnish off saving the vita

I don't think Nintendo has messed up permanently - free online, no drm, etc. They got nothing fundamentally wrong. They just need to show more games.

I agree with Lawrence - its like the 3DS. Poor start, but possible to recover from.
Nintendo still has a heavy price advantage over the competition too.

So it really depends what they will show in 2 hours...

This. I remember that when I had the PS2 there were shitloads of games I'd play every month. Now you have to wait months to get ONE decent game

I don't know, again, I really liked Sony's presentation. I don't think "everything they release is now crap." However there are some things which I refuse to do, and pay for online is one of them. That doesn't mean its crap, just that I disagree with that philosophical model.

There are a ton of great games this console gen, and my backlog speaks to more games to play than I have time to play them lol.
