Talking What are you most looking forward to at E3?

E3 is happening this week. What are you most looking forward to? I am interested in anything and everything PS4 - especially what the console looks like and when it comes out.

I'm looking forward to all the piss poor marketing decisions every company is going to make with their lame excuse that it's all the pirates fault that we had to do it.

quote from someone on another forum I go to.

Quote:
you'll keep blaming all those dirty, filthy video gamers for trading, for reselling, for actually expecting more out of their games, instead of looking at your bloated budgets, mismanagement, stale bullshit rehashes, restricting DRM, monopolistic distribution practices, pissed off fans and bored casuals who have moved on to other things. it's the pirates, those bastards. the PIRATES
Pirates aren't killing the industry, it's the industries poor handling of pirating that is killing it.

Even in 2013, this is still applicable.

The only conference that interests me right now is the Ubisoft conference (because last year, Watch Dogs was among the few things that actually looked interesting) and maybe Sony's (in the vain hope that they won't screw up the PS4 as badly as MS are the Xbone).

This is already shaping up to be the worst E3 ever. v_v

I'm interested in hearing what Nintendo has to say on the new Legend of Zelda, but that's about it. The PS4 might be of interest as well, but I figure I'll just read a recap of that conference afterwards for all the big news.

Bisected, I agree wholeheartedly-- it would be absolutely terrible to have the PS4 come out looking as awful as the Xbox one...

The PS4 definitely looks more promising than the xbox... A friend and I was discussing the xbox and he believes Microsoft is just testing to see how bad they can make products (Windows 8) just to see people continue to buy their stuff. He believes that after awhile they will just make a machine that when you turn it on it punches the consumer in the face. :P

I admit that I'm weary of the XBox One related raging, but this made me laugh! XD

Personally I don't think Windows 8's that bad (the interface is more or less the same once you get past the new start menu).

There are also fairly logical reasons why they introduced the more controversial features; they just misread how they would be received by the market (mostly, they seem to have tried to make "lesser" versions of controversial features, such as charging an activation fee rather than completely blocking used games, without realising they still go too far).

Not looking out for much at E3 -- I don't really care about marketing horse shows. I care about new releases, so I'll only know what I look forward to after E3 has come and gone XD

If E3 turns out to be a sales circle-jerk like both of the next-gen console announcements, my interest will be gathered by the 'upcoming games' list on GameFAQs moreso than E3.

Heh, I like how MS tried to pull an Ubisoft this year and impress everyone by suddenly showing a new IP at the end. ¨_¨

Then again, the whole thing was better than I expected.

I am tuning in for the segment in which they burn the Xbox 360 in effigy.

I honestly think if Nintendo does not come out with a new Zelda and/or Super Smash Bros game for the Wii U soon then the system is dead in the water.

Everyone has been saying that since freaking N64 (Although the titles you site are different, back with the N64 --- it was all the RPGs going to Sony).

Yet here we are with the WiiU.

The box has changed, the outlook hasn't.

How many goddamn Zelda games do we need before we can say "Okay it's fine we're good"?

Not that I don't love Zelda. I super do. But for me I am going to need something that changes the game entirely.

And no, being forced to play as a wolf with an earring isn't what I am lookin' for.
