5/10 or C from me. No real surprises (GAF spoiled them) and I wasn't crazy about the games that were shown.
I'm not expecting much better from Sony or Nintendo, tbh.
This year's lineup (across all systems) is one of the worst in quite some time, IMO. There's just nothing I'm really looking forward to for the rest of the year since Infamous and Diablo 3: ROS hit... unless if by some miracle Beast Souls comes out this year.
Now it's over with, I feel those leaks did actually damage the way this conference is going to be perceived. That is kind of a shame. I'm all for leaks, but It's clear that all the surprises were no such thing, and that has left people unhappy. Had that not been the case, the response would be more positive I think.
They showed some new titles that have peoples attention, though it is a shame they showed so much CGI, but at least they focused on games. That is great. Good effort.
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.
expected more, they are behind PS4 now, so it was their chance to generate hype, and they did not.
Correct conference being generous. I guess they did not have enough time to have enough games announced since Spencer came. Maybe next year they will deliver some megatons.
Im really disappointed by the conference. They showed us gameplay of Halo 2....really?? A ten year old game??? Acting like it's something new.....get out of here. Sunset looks like the biggest tweaker game, in my opinion. Outside of the Witcher 3, there was nothing that would have made me run out and buy a console if I didn't already have one. When Fable is the best looking game then we have problems. And CoD to kick it off.....FAIL!!!!!! We've seen CoD already...every year we see CoD like it's going to be the most amazing experience ever. I give Microsoft a B-.
It was 100% games, without Kinect, but it was still a liitle big dissapointing. Nothing really big and new. And Crackdown and Platinum game were spoiled by insiders.
So far, I'm interested in Halo collection, Sunset Overdrive and new Platinum game.
Better than last year for sure but nothing exciting. Not enough gameplay and to much multiplats with early dlc. What happened to the PC i only saw like 2 or 3 games mentioning pc besides the obvious muiltiplats like cod. They said more focus on pc it looks like more of the same. Also Is it just me or did the witchers frame rate look horrendous?
