E3 2011 News

I'll spare you all of the mundane video game news. I mean Halo 4 is coming out, but I dunno...it won't be made by Bungie so I won't hold my breath. Anyways, here's what I'm intrigued by thus far.

1. The rumors have been put to rest. A new Nintendo console is on it's way. I believe it is called Wii U. This will be released between April and December of next year.

2. President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata has announced that Super Smash Bros. 4 is in the works. The creator of the Smash Bros. series Mashiro Sakurai will once again be the development team's leader. Sakurai says he will get to work on it just as soon as Kid Icarus: Uprising is out the door.



^ There is the controller. Here's the lowdown. Lets say your roommate is tried of being a spectator, and they would like to watch some TV. You can disconnect your controller from the TV and keep playing via controller screen. Pretty sweet.

Also, I am excited for the Street Fighter X Tekken/ Tekken X Street Fighter crossovers, but wow...the release date for these games are disheartening. =X_X= Meh.

Eh, they're not really releasing any really cool information.

Nintendo:
The Nintendo "Wii U" is very...whatever. And hasn't been rumor for a long time. I honestly hope they come up with a better name, perhaps going back to the "Nintendo Revolution", as I find the "Wii U" completely uninspiring, not to mention the system itself looks like an small original 360 model. A controller the size of an Ipad that pretty much turns into a glorified hand held doesn't speak volumes when it comes to terms of graphics, despite what the company has said about he new system being HD. They also said the 3DS has graphics almost capable of rivaling the 360 or PS3. So far, the best graphics I've seen on the 3DS are on the DoA that just came out. They should have had better titles for the release. So far, I'm not holding my breath for anything special.

Sony:
The Vita is a catch up to the DS finally cashing in on the touch pad and two cameras, though I have to admit the graphics are quite superior and the motion controls seem like they could be fun. It feels like a much flushed out and better designed PSP system, with the second model with 3G. On a completely unrelated topic, have you noticed how everything has to have a phone now? Even grapefruit are going to start coming with phones. That and cameras. And as for NBA 2k12 being Move compatible...Either Kobe really sucks at the game or the controls really suck. I'm betting my money on both.

Microsoft:
They're re-releasing Halo 1 in the anniversary edition but aside from a few minor upgrades, the graphics look essentially the same. And I wouldn't be at all surprised if Halo 4 had a shorter campaign than ODST. All people care about now is multi-player. It's just Microsoft abusing it's Cash Cow again. Silly Microsoft. That Gears 3 Xbox looks really cool though. I still have my Black Original model, so I doubt I'll upgrade, but it looks pretty.

I want some info on Dead Island and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Some good games, but;

MS': Here's all the games you've played before...BUT WITH KINECT!

Sony: Here's all the games you've been expecting to play. Plus we're competing with Nintendo for the silliest product name!

Nintendo: U mad?

That said, I'm looking forward to Bioshock: Infinite and The HD remake of ICO and SotC.

...and I need Skyrim. NOW!

I really hope that the new wii console doesn't make mine entirely obsolete. I rather enjoy my wii.

The only thing I watched about E3 yet.

Yet I probably play more games than any of you, I think I failed somewhere.

No, not realistically. Though I would be confident enough to say "Only if you don't work or attend to necessary life-maintaining concerns like food or sleep".

I'm a games programming student. Playing them is my work (well programming them is, but I do a lot of "research"). =P

As for the matter of food and sleep, check my title.

Even though we don't pretty much see eye to eye on...well...pretty much anything, I must admit that I friggin lol'd at 46 seconds in the video where he's yawning the Halo theme song, and he pulls out a Master Chief helmet. X3

That and Kinect. ^^

When I watched Nintendo's conference, I honestly wasn't all that impressed. The Wii U's controller reminds me WAYYY too much of an iPad and the console itself reminds me of a DVD player.

Xbox&Sony: Usual generic shooter crap.

Nintendo: Not much better. Although I prefer Nintendo, if I'm honest, there's not a lot thats appealing to me. The Wii U isn't out until next year, so I prevent myself from caring just yet.

Skyward Sword looks about as good as it did last E3. Still great, but nothing new.

Oh well.

This year's E3 is quite disappointing.
Aside from PS Vita, nothing seems exciting.
