Horrible press conference. Really. I dont get all this decent comments.
- Sunset Overdrive
- Platinum Game
- Halo re-releases
- More Forza
(Might have missed some)
Halo is Halo. Im sure forza can be fun, but the only new exciting thing they had was Ori. But they made even Fable look bland, boring and predictable.
This was a bad press conference. Out of the 5 best showcases, 4 was multiplatform.
Phantom Dust and Scalebound showing CG trailers means they probably just pulled these out really early to try to win a crucial E3. I imagine these games are still far off. Solid conference though with non-stop games... was surprised at how much stuff they had for 2014. Conker thing still has me bummed out though.
Disappointed. Every multi platform game I thought to myself this will look better on PS4 and PC. As for new exclusives, they were Phantom Dust, Crackdown and and Platinum Games New IP which all were CO trailers and look far off. It seems MS are desperate to show of games early I am questioning if those games are even 2015 games.
Despite not having any jaw dropping announcements, the pacing of the conference was very good. They showed games all the way through. Unfortunately no gameplay for Phantom Dust, Scalebound, and Crackdown. Overall I'd give the conference an 8 out of 10. However, I am not too impressed with the game selection through 2015.
Sunset Overdrive was the clear winner here. Taking the piss out of the grimdark COD shootery stuff was a bit on the nose, but still appreciated. Beautiful colours, smooth animation, it just looks like pure fun. I read the Edge article last month but it didn't do it justice, I was really impressed.
Crackdown is nice to have back with D. Jones at the helm. Halo Collection we knew about, but it will also be great to have everything on one disc, Criterion-ized for your pleasure. Plus a day without Dan Ayoub on stage is like a woman without diamonds or a day without Twinkies. Good stuff.
Felt bad for the Harmonix dev. Sucks to have the rug pulled out from underneath you like that.
Certainly not a bad conference. In fact, the structure of the conference was pretty amazing, just games, games games.
But as much as I loved the first Crackdown, they didn't show anything that truly wowed me. I'm still waiting for the game that just screams 'next-gen'. The kind of game Gears of War was for the Xbox 360.
This is their best conference that I have ever been a witness to. Pure games. A lot of good ones and none made me want to turn off the stream (except maybe Fables).
People complaining about CGI is baffling. We're always treated to just CGI, it's no big deal. Games are not ready to be shown but knowing they're in development is the upside. None of these studios are Team Ico or Square so don't expect these games to come out in 3 years.
I think I'm coming off this a little underwhelmed/disappointed because I was expecting a big megaton. A little too much CGI trailers too but overall there were plenty of interesting reveals. Loved the Witcher and AC: Unity gameplay (France looks like it's shaping up to be a fantastic backdrop), the Limbo sequel and SO (what a fantastic trailer that was!). The Scalebound trailer got me pretty excited too.
It was a decent, good solid conference I feel. Lacking the huge bombs but it had great pacing: just games, games, games.
Definitely stronger than last year, but still not the best. I was very happy to see Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crackdown III and Phantom Dust though. Other than those three, it was pretty much as expected.
They did not bore us, but they did not show anything even close to megaton. Too many already leaked games, no suprises, and few announcment were not even present [Quantum Break, Gears]. I expected more.
