Hey guys! As always, this topic is to keep things nice and unchaotic.

So yeah, it's next week. Tons of huge games, and a little thing called the Wii U. Let's get dangerous!

#2 TheAnarCHris on 7 years ago

I'm expecting a kind of lackluster E3 this year TBH. Here's some early predictions:

Sony- GoW, Last of Us, Sony Smash Bros, LBP cart, Vita, some EA announcements. Maybe a suprise at the end, but man, same ol' same ol'

MS- Halolz 4, Kinect, XBL nonsense, Call of Duty exclusive DLC and maybe GTAV news.

Nintendo- Nintendo doing it's damnedest to sell the WiiU, maybe a Wii suprise or 2, and 3DS games/redesign/new colors. Easily the most exciting, especially if Mario 4 is actually announced.

And we already have our first megaton.

I'm betting on a prequel a la Reach. The Handcuffs suggest Marcus' arrest, while the world burns around him. Probably on E-day.

Double post due to space:

Oh, nevermind.

FFv13 is now officially FF15. Kind of takes the piss out of that whole Nova Chrystalis fantasia, as well as anyone who was silly enough to cosplay from vs.13 already.

Can't tell if this is megaton or not. Going to 360, PS3 and Wii-U though so...2013, we'll see if this truly is the Duke Nukem Forever of Japan.

That SE iOS lineup actually sounds dope. And FFv13 going multi and 2013 IS kinda huge, assuming if it's true. If the game is ACTUALLY any good is another story.

Also LOL early cosplayers.

Konami's Pre-E3 presser is...tonight at 3am?

Wha?

#9 Mesoian on 7 years ago

Looking at the MGS:Revengence trailer, I think I know what happened to Bayo 2...

[QUOTE=Mesoian;4405123]Looking at the MGS:Revengence trailer, I think I know what happened to Bayo 2...[/QUOTE]

I'm still thinking Bayo 2 is more speculation than something that was going to happen for sure. Platinum is a small company and between finishing Anarchy Reigns and REvengence, I don't think they have enough man power to be working on anything else. That and Bayo was Platinum's only true global hit, so a sequel may just be more of a question of when rather then if.

Of course I could just be in denial.

Either way, I plan on buying the hell out of MGS:R, because I <3 Platinum, and I can name at least 3 idiots who will have rage-boners if I do. TROLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL, etc.

#11 Mesoian on 7 years ago

It looks real good, it just looks like Bayo. I'm always down for more Bayo.

Tomb Raider looks good. Glad they seem to have made it a little less porny than it was the last time it was shown. It's odd to see a Tomb Raider game with such a human adversary point of view. I hope that when this game does the classic switch to the supernatural, it feels a bit more sound than suddenly locking itself into blue yeti men or something.

Legit. Uncharted 1 & 2 did a good job with the supernatural shoe-horning, and since the new TR seems to be heavily-influenced by that series, I'm hoping they follow in it shoes.

Also I'm never thought I'd be excited for a TR game past the year 1995.

EDIT: Possibly the first images of Dead Space 3 leaked online:

I stayed late at work all week to help get a demo in tip top shape for E3... Now I just want to see the event happen already!

I'm looking forward to Nintendo's line-up, if only to see if they announce any Dragon Quest localizations. :heart:

#14 Kaze Saffire on 7 years ago

Hoping the price for a PS3 drops like my co-worker gets getting my hopes up about. He's got a backwards compatible PS3 that he wants to sell for the price of a new PS3. So if the price drops to an even $200, I'm golden.

Are you allowed to tell us (after E3) which demo?

And Nintendo is the one company I always look forward to at E3. Sure, they have the occasional weird presentation (remember the Wii Vitality Sensor?) and I can be rather critical of the way they do certain things (I hate the way the eShop is handled) but you know what? They're my favorite video game company and I'm always interested to see what's coming out from them. This year's E3 will be interesting for them what with a brand new console launching this year (I think? Last I heard it was) it'll be interesting to see what games and features the Wii U will have. I'm also interested in seeing new info on previously announced 3DS games such as Luigi's Mansion, Paper Mario, and New Super Mario Bros 2. The 3DS seems to finally be picking up steam, and I want to see how Nintendo is going to keep it up.

The other 3DS games I'm hoping to hear about are the recently announced Shin Megami Tensei 4 and Castlevania. Oh and Layton vs Wright but I'm not going to hold my breath on any Ace Attorney related stuff haha.
