anyone else agree?
Judging by how the Microsoft conference went I think it will play out tis way.
what about ubisoft, that was the ultimate winner!June 4, 2012 at 5:08 pm #35244
Ya, Ubisoft was just killing me with awesomeness. It was just that good.June 4, 2012 at 5:34 pm #35257
four players only, if EA would learn to share and give Ubisoft a turn I’m sure it would knock the others off

Look I get it, people want their consoles to play games, and just play games. I am in complete agreement with that sentiment. But good lord the chat was WAY too whiny during the Microsoft conference. Seeing the chat fly by with 30-40 people saying the exact same thing is just overkill.June 4, 2012 at 6:34 pm #35269

Yeah that made it very hard to even watch. Sony’s conference has been okay so far, but it’s been a lot of “deal” announcing and less “game” announcing, spare Beyond which looks amazing. All Stars looks okay but I mean it is strikingly similar to smash bros., like INCREDIBLY similar. Hopefully they mix up the play style a little, but playing as big daddy is a selling point in it of itself ;DJune 4, 2012 at 7:08 pm #35273
Okay wait never mind I guess sony just forgot they were a gaming system becuase they haven’t talked about anything but books, music, and other crap that has nothing to do with actual games for like the last 30 minutes.June 4, 2012 at 8:44 pm #35332
Certainly agree about MS and EA, but Sony did an admirable job. You can easily make a case for Beyond being the most impressive game so far, Last of Us looked nearly as good, and GoW and All-stars did a respectable if predictable job of rounding it out. Ubisoft arguably looked a bit better, with outstanding trailers of Far Cry 3 (especially compared to what Sony showed), Assassin’s Creed 3, and ZombiU. Then they of course topped it off with another contender for game of the the show, Watch_Dogs. I think what we’ve seen from Beyond might have the graphical edge, but Watch_Dogs showed more actual gameplay. They both look pretty intriguing in terms of premise, with one dealing with channeling the dead and utilizing their abilities, and the other allowing for godlike powers over technology to analyze people and control the world around you.
It looked bad to begin with, but Sony and Ubisoft have really helped make this E3 a success.June 5, 2012 at 4:03 am #35402
This is pretty much my impression form E3 2012.
It is kind of embarrassing to watch them proclaim their system the best, when every intelligent person knows that all platforms but PC are just totally outdated by now and that they are just trying to keep people buying as long as the can.
Ubisoft Conference was the best so far, Watch Dogs looks interesting, it is a very good idea but they did not show much of the execution.
But E3 is just ignoring the biggest portion of the gaming industry just to try keeping their console relevant.June 5, 2012 at 4:45 am #35415

Get ready folks.

I say Ubisoft and Sony put on good shows. Aside from some boring parts I was kept entertained. What I saw of EA’s show was pretty lackluster. Hearing that Microsofts was fairly similar I have no interest checking it out for myself.
In a sense, Nintendo’s show could go either way. It’s highly unlikely the show will be weak. Still, you same feeling as when waiting for an exam result. You studied hard and were confident while writing. Once you begin waiting for the result, doubt sets in. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Interesting note at the end of that article about Watch_Dogs. My younger brother and I had the same reaction as most, wow, that looks awesome. On the other hand my elder brother, whom isn’t in to gaming, commented on how boring the gameplay appeared. That is definitely something to think about.June 5, 2012 at 10:35 am #35456
I got a say i’m very disappointed by Nintendo on E3. :(
As somebody who grew up with N64, i’m not feeling the awesomeness of Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie etc etc. Sure it’s just a launch, but when you are more excited about Xbox 360 (don’t own it yet, mostly play on PS3 and PC) that’s on it’s way out, it’s not good, not good at all.
As somebody who owns Windows Phone and is going to buy Windows 8 tablet, i was more interested by SmartGlass and Halo 4 on Microsoft event than anything Nintendo showed. Not to even talk about Ubisoft that just simply won E3, Sony following behind.
Just for Nintendo’s sake, i really hop they get this thing going. They need to steal the show before next gen PS and xbox.June 5, 2012 at 10:52 am #35460
Nintendo did quite poorly as far as I’m concerned. Outside of Pikmin 3 and New Super Mario Brothers U, not really any surprises, and a bad lack of titles for core and hardcore audiences. They seem to be pushing this like they did the Wii, as something your mom and grandma will like just as much if not more than you do. No price point, no launch day, no proper 3D Mario, no Zelda, no confirmations of exciting new IPs like Beyond and Watch_Dogs coming to the WiiU. They might have shown off more gameplay (and better games) for the 3DS than they did for the WiiU, and the 3DS is supposed to have its own conference.
Better than MS and EA, but nowhere near the impact left by Sony and Ubisoft. Add to that a reported price of around $400 at launch and I don’t see WiiU taking off unless they can get parents to buy them for their kids for Christmas. As a traditional gamer I saw very little that I would be intrigued by.June 5, 2012 at 11:07 am #35461
Yeah, Nintendo was pretty boring. That Nintendo Land thing probably wasn’t a good way to end it off either.
Now, I didn’t watch every single conference all the way through, but from what I’ve seen, I’d say Ubisoft totally won this one. They had some meh stuff themselves, but they also had the solid three-hit combo of Rayman Legends, AssCreed 3 and that awesome looking Watch Dogs game!June 5, 2012 at 11:28 am #35465
but when you are more excited about Xbox 360 (don’t own it yet, mostly play on PS3 and PC) that’s on it’s way out, it’s not good, not good at all.
Similar reaction for me, except switch Xbox 360 and PS3 around.
To be fair, I already wanted to add a PS3 to my collection, but Sony brought some A game with them this year. Definitely made me more interested in their end-of-gen PS3 than Nintendo managed with their next-gen WiiU.
I’d rank the conferences: 1. Ubisoft, 2. Sony, 3. Nintendo, 4. Microsoft, 5. EA
