Well look at me with 3 topics in VG. Maybe I am trying to get you old cynical bastards talking to each other again : ) Anyway, onto this week's subject:

Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009


To sum things up so far,
  • The weather has cleared over in Kojima Land
  • The PSP Go has been likened to a rather familiar south park character
  • Crysis 2 has been announced and even peasants will be able to run it on their simple current generation consoles, no not the Wii don't be stupid. A new Mario has been announced for you fellows.
  • Microsoft are supposed to be announcing something "special"
  • The coverage at Kotaku seems to be a lot faster and up to date compared to Gamespot so go there.

It's christmas for gamers!

So far I am glad that I won't have to mess with the settings of Crysis 2 for half an hour before I can get it to play because it will just be a case of opening a beer and putting a blu ray into the drive. I couldn't care less about Assassin's Creed 2. I have my eye on/hopes for:

  • Kojima's Next Big Poo Poo (5)
  • Modern Warfare 2
  • Bioshock 2
  • Deus Ex 3
  • Mafia 2 (If you haven't played the first - PLAY it, gta just doesn't come close)
  • HL2: Episode 3 - If Valve don't announce this today they are officially lazy bastards and I am gonna mail them a boot to kick themselves with.

I'm expecting to be the only GW member to give a rat's ass about F1 2009 by Codemasters.

But the PS3 looks to have some nice things coming up. Heavy Rain looks awesome, and I usually hate games like that. I'm also excited for Assassin's Creed 2, because the setting of the game is much more appealing to me than the setting we saw in the original.

GUESS AGAIN finally a multi-platform F1 game.

I am actually looking forward to knowing what Kojima's big whatever is all about. I mean it's shameless hype of course but when Big Boss is involved I will always be slightly excited.

If you own a PSP or Wii, yeah. Pisses me off that I have to wait until next year to play F1 2010 on my PS3.


And it's obviously a Metal Gear kart racer.

Yeah, PS3 seems to have a pretty good lineup, especially Uncharted 2. I'm also excited for Crysis 2, new Mario (if it's you know REAL Mario and not some stupid spinoff) and hoping that Nintendo will finally reveal new Zelda. I suppose not too many here are that interested in FF13 but I look forward to seeing more stuff about it.

And quietly waiting for Skies of Arcadia 2 announcement...

People care about Crysis? I thought that game was only used for benchmarks, like Quake 4.

Oh well, I wonder who will make an idiot of themselves at this years event? Having a poor sense of humor, I still laugh at sony's old "It's RIDGE RACCERRR" conference... Though this year, I'm actually looking forward to a few things for a change, like Mass Effect 2, and Modern Warfare 2 specifically. I doubt we'll be seeing anything about episode 3.

Mass Effect 2, and Modern Warfare 2 specifically.

These are the ones I'm looking out for the most. Bioshock and Lost Planet are looking okay, and maybe Assassins Creed 2, depending on what they show of the gameplay.

Too many 2s.

L4D 2 what the hell? Valve caters to 360 fans because updating the game like TF2 doesn't work on xbox.

Crysis is a good FPS, despite the furore over performance.

If this ever happens, I would probably be the happiest man alive. Maaaaaaaan even a remake of the first with HD graphics and extra stuff (oh wait they already did the latter with Legends). Jesus Christ there is no limit to how many times I would buy that game.

you're missing the point. either you actually have to do skateboard tricks on the controller (which would be a terrible decision because skateboarding is hard as fuck) or they make it not like skateboarding at all which makes the controller pointless


edit: pretty huge xbox announcement- motion tracking without a controller. it looks like its a lot better than shitty eyetoy stuff too, more like the wii without a controller

I thought this was a joke when I read this on another forum.

Are you shitting me? Has Valve fallen victim to the retard virus that seems to have afflicted nearly every other developer? Instead of fixing the game they have out now, they're going to release a fixed version as a separate product and charge full price? Whoo boy, I can't wait.

yeah that's what i thought you were doing until you responded to the balance board thing. guitar hero is insanely fun though and there's plenty of gimmicky controllers that are neat to play with, if only for a change. the wii dominates in this market.
