Live streaming from E3 today. Will anyone be watching? I'm interested to see what's announced and shown, but if I miss something, I won't be terribly disappointed.

Maybe I'll post thoughts along the way in the comments. Join in if you're watching :)

Watching it as I work. So far nothing seems compelling at all.

That said, they seem to think 1080p graphics is a new hot thing. godmode

Fable Legends seems OK. It's the most interesting thing i've seen yet.

The combat seems pretty fun.

It is funny how much they're saying "All in 1080p!"

The Halo Collection on XBone looks interesting. Too bad it's not on PC/Windows.

IT WILL BE IN 1080P!

You can watch the stream live on Twitch too.

Seems to be better quality.

Witcher 3 gameplay looks great. So far, the best game i've seen show. I think the reason why is because they were just hunting an animal in game. Kind of getting "save the entire universe" fatigue with games and movies.

What a right-wing hater you are. "I don't want to save people, I just want to hunt meat."

So far I haven't seen anything that amazing. I was looking forward to details about Mirror's Edge 2 but they really didn't give us anything. Criterion's next game looks incredible, I have to say.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 06/09/2014 at 09:17pm

What was Criterion's game?

I think Ubisoft just turned smart phones into a Wii controller for Just Dance...

jdodson   Admin wrote on 06/09/2014 at 10:21pm

They didn't say much about how it works, but it's a great idea.

AdamPFarnsworth   Post Author wrote on 06/09/2014 at 10:29pm

yeah... but there's a reason the Wii remote has a strap lol.

I'm already looking forward to the stories of people throwing their phones whilst playing Just Dance ;)

Excited to see more about Abzu, coming from Giant Squid. Ex-Thatgamecompany art director for Journey, Matt Nava and company. Have been following since they formed Giant Squid, because of an unhealthy attachment to all things Journey. Really want to see what they are capable of on their own.

Jon, Criterion's next game doesn't have a name yet from what I can see but it's a massive open-worldish racing game where you can race many different kinds of vehicles.

Catching up on the highlights from last night-- Little Big Planet 2 has me wanting a PS4. If I do end up getting one, this will be a major reason why.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/10/2014 at 02:00pm

Er... 3. Little Big Planet 3.

So far I've been impressed with Nintendo. I don't care at all about the Amiibo, but both Captian Toad's Treasure Tracker and Zelda look impressive. Zelda and Mario Kart 8 might be making me lean towards actually getting a Wii at some point.

I really am interested in the open world feel of Zelda. Hopefully it's as big and open as the press conference made it sound!

And it looked briefly like in Captain Toad, the remote controller could be used as a first person perspective? I would like to see more of that.

AdamPFarnsworth   Post Author wrote on 06/10/2014 at 04:33pm

And I'm loving the Robot Chicken interludes between games lol

AdamPFarnsworth   Post Author wrote on 06/10/2014 at 05:02pm

Splatoon looks like a lot of fun! I'm already thinking up strategies :)

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/10/2014 at 05:11pm

Nintendo is trying hard to get my money. Mario Kart 8, a new Zelda, Bayonetta 2, Star Fox... yeah, I might have to shell out. Hopefully at the end of the conference they announce a price drop.

I haven't seen Nintendo's showing yet, but I caught up on Microsoft and Sony last night. Watching Microsoft first got me excited about the Halo Master Chief collection (big halo fan...), the resurrection of Phantom Dust from the original Xbox (very fun title back in the day), and Inside (from creators of Limbo). Then...then I saw Sony's and I quickly forgot about what the XBone had to offer. Suda51's Let It Die, Bloodborne from From Software, Abzu, Grim Fandango, even the 3rd party games that will be on multiple systems made the PS4 more enticing. Playstation Now was interesting. The idea of being able to use that service simply through a capable Sony TV is most interesting. Latency will be the key factor there. Interested to see what they do with Morpheus.

Okay, watched Nintendo's Digital Event. Not super impressed. Captain Toad does look cool. The idea of an open world Zelda is exciting, but I'll believe that when I see it. Splatoon looks amazing; wish it was coming to other consoles. I'd play Hyrule Warriors. Never a huge fan of Dynasty Warriors, but I loved Ninety-nine Nights, which is similar enough. Bayonetta 2 will be good, and the inclusion of the original is nice.

With most of these games sporting a 2015 release, I'll probably put off getting a Wii U for a while longer.
