Microsoft

90 mins of pure games.

Starts off with the usual

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare

However looked very typical CoD and didn’t blow my socks off.

Forza

- New race track immediatly for Forza 5 (Nurbugring)

Forza Horizon 2

- Set in South of France
– Great Dynamic Weather with Day/Night cycle- looked great in the wet etc
– Creating clubs of 1000 members
– Open World
– Out Sept 14

Evolve
-Not my thing, but it looked pretty

Assassins Creed Unity

– Create your own brotherhood
– 4 Player Co-op
– Massive Crowds and inside buildings.
– Looked interesting

Dragon Age 3
– More Dragons
– Nice Graphics
– Out in Oct

Sunset Overdrive
– Mad trailer which took the mickey out of cover based shooters
– Usual Insomniac weapons
– Colourful as hell with fast Jet Set Radio style traversal
– Liked the Comic book style sound effects
– Out in Oct

Dead Rising III Super Arcade Hyper Alpha Edition
-WTF is this DLC that allows you to dress as all of the Capcom characters in Dead Rising III
– Available now.

Fable Legends
– Team up with 3 other heros or play as the villian.
– Looks like Dungeon Master meets Fable
– Lots of Quippy Dialogue that might get old soon.

Project Spark – Now with Conker
– Not my thing. Needs a creative person to make these games

Ori and the Blind Forest
– Ehh??
– Weird Side scrolling platforer

Halo

- Halo Masterchief (1-4 in a new remaster package)
– Comes with TV show and Beta to Halo 5
– Not a lot of Halo 5 stuff

Now for 2015 stuff

New Limbo creators game that looks just like Limbo (4 years to make that-Ha Ha)

Rise of the Tomb Raider

-Nice CGI trailer
– Looked nice but no gameplay

Witcher III
– Gameplay hunting a Griffin.
– Looks fantastic

Phantom Dust

-?? never heard of the original game

The Division

– Looked fantastic in a purely scripted demo
– Would it be as good with those other players being your mates.
– Did look a lot of fun though.

Scalebound
-Exclusive Platinum+ game
– Monster Hunter with a Dragon on your side ??

Crackdown
– Rebooting Crackdown series
– Looked Saints Row like
– Cell Shading and cartooney.

Overall a safe conference with nothing standing out as being a huge surprise or something I’m dying to play. They seem to have a lot of faith in Crackdown.

EA in line for worst presentation of 2014.

A lot of vague conceptial BS with tours of their offices.

Star Wars Battlefront

-The Early Footage looked great, but showed bugger all.

Dragon Age 3
– Not sure about this game didn’t really play 1 or 2.
– Looks great visually.
– Assembling a team and choices being forefront.
– Dragon Fight was cool

Mass Effect 4
– More conceptial office BS
– Didn’t tell me or show me anything

Sims 4
-God that went on forever.
– Sims not have emotions.
– Sims 5 will get sentience and take over the world

Ton of sports

UFC - Bruce Lee for the win.
NHL 15
PGA Tour 15 – Battleships on your golf course ?
Madden 15 – EA word of the day was new emotions in you games
Fifa 15 – More emotions

Unnamed Criteron Game
– WTF was this very early protoype
– Open world pick up anything and race it?
– Cars, Boats, Planes, wing suits
– Weird that this was even here

Dawngate

Dreadful conference.

Ubisoft hit it out the park

Farcry 4
– Psycho is a bit to Vaas like
– Not a lot of gameplay (Expect it at Sony)
– Did look very very nice

Just Dance 2015
– Use Smart phone to get a ton of people dancing etc.
– Looked ok if your into that kind of thing.

The Division
– Great timelapse trailer of NY going to shit
– Still hope this lives up to the promise but it continues to look great.

The Crew

– Open world racer driving as a crew that covers the entire US
– Fast trailer of a 2 hour mission to race from Miami to LA
– Looks cool

Assassins Creed Unity
– Flying bird trailer of the French Revolution
– SOmeone ruining Everyone Rules the WOrld with a slow ass version
– Single player demo looked great, but then the other 3 people show up at the end so can this game be played with one player?
– Ignore all the side missions you want Smile

Shape Up
– Mini Games to make fitness fun.
– Piano Step looked like a ROck Band game with jumping around to the beat.
– Pushups with weird stuff on your back. Including a whale and a giant donut.

Valiant Hearts
– Puzzle Adventure around letters from the tranches of WWI
– Interesting art style and probably a really downer ending

BIG SHOCK – being sarcastic

Rainbow Six: Siege
– Multiplayer 5v5 battles.
– Showed the set up where one team gets to set up and fortify where the hostage is and the good guys plan the entry from a map screen
– Looked interesting if you play as a set team. Playing with strangers will suck
– Seemed awfully nice looking for a pre-alpha game.

Aleisha Tyler was great again.

Sony conference kicks ass.

It sagged a bit in the middle when it moved away from games, but there was enough there to kick Microsoft’s ass.

Destiny
– Amazing trailer
– Launches with new white PS4 console bundle

Order 1886
– looks fantastic
– Fighting a werewolf
– Loved the way it seemly moved from cut scene to gameplay

Entwined
– weird indie game like controlling two dragons with the sticks at the same time

Infamous Second Son DLC

-First Light
– Seems to be based around Fetch the Neon powered girl

Little Big Planet 3
– Demo went on a bit too long, but introduced a lot of new characters to play with.

Bloodborne
– New From Software game (Previously Project Beast)
– Creepy as f**k

Far Cry 4
– Great looking game
– Gamepplay demo looked a lot of fun.
– Attaching c4 to a barrel and pushing it over Smile
– Huge Map
– Co-Op with friends even if they don’t own game

Dead Island 2
– CGI trailer was quite funny.

Battlefield Hardline
– Just a new trailer

Grim Fandango Remastered
– Favourite announcement of E3

Let it Die
– Suda 51 game
– is it FMV?

Giant Squid
– New game from the Journey guy
– Underwater with lots of sharks and skuba diving

No Man’s Sky
– Amazing looking procedural generated game
– Started on a planet with Dinosaur style creatures
– Get in ship and fly to space into battle and then down onto another planet seemlessly
– Looked Fantastic

At this point the conference went downhill as it started talking numbers etc.
– Youtube coming to PS4
– Free to play stuff
– Playstation Now coming July
– Bunch of Vita stuff
– Mentioned the VR headset
– Playstation TV coming fall for $99 (Vita TV in Japan)
– Brian M Bendis appears on stage to tout Powers the TV Show
– Ratchet and Clank Movie

Ok Back to games

Mortal Kombat X

– Gameplay of the fighting
– Brutal fatalities

Last of Us Remastered
– July
– Does look amazing

Metal Gear Solid V

– Game looks great
– WTF is going on though

GTA V
– Coming to PS4
– Can port online progress and characters from PS3

Batman: Arkham Knight

– Gotham never looked so good
– Driving the Bat Mobile, converting it into tank mode and jumping seemlessly in/out of it looked amazing

Finally…

Uncharted 4 – a thief’s end
– someone is going to die as they stressed one last adventure and the games title
– Dissapointingly short teaser that showed nothing of the game.

Still nothing to convince me to upgrade from my 360 yet. Forza Horizon 2 will only be 30fps on my console, but nothing announced on X1 or PS4 has really blown my mind.

 

Shinier versions of GTAV, Last of Us and Halo 1-4 plus EA's concept-heaving presentation seem like an admission there's not much on the way in the next 12 months.
