06-03-2012, 11:11 PM
I'm sure many people are aware that E3 2012 starts tomorrow (the press conferences at least). So why not make a thread to discuss it here? What're you guys looking forward to seeing revealed? Personally, I'm looking forward to some substantial Assassin's Creed III info and maybe some more stuff on the Wii U.

I wanna see some more info about the wii u and the psvita. I really want to see some more rpgs and original games

06-04-2012, 12:33 PM
I'm curious if there will be more news about Mist of Pandaria. But I also want a little more details about The Secret World.

Edit: post #69. Hewl yeah.

I wanna see how developers are using the Wii U's technology. Still hoping for a game with art as the main mechanic or an open-world Pokemon game with active combat.

New Earthbound, new Pikmin, new Smash Bros. Heck, I'm still waiting for a Fire Emblem with active combat. It could work like Mount and Blade with magic.

New Castlevania and Luigi's Mansion. I'm totally stoked.

06-05-2012, 03:59 PM
New super mario world that works like the original snes version and not the crap they made for nintendo DS some years ago.

06-05-2012, 04:02 PM
Aw, heck yeah. Last Of Us looks amazing. Too bad that comparison is extremely accurate.

06-06-2012, 11:43 PM
Didn't get to see everything but some thoughts on the few things I saw:

- Wuh, Smash Bros clone? Really Sony? How original!
- Woo! Luigi's Mansion!
- Can move my digital downloads to Wii U? That'd be cool if it happens.

I watched that trailer, and couldn't help but think 'Metal Deus: Assassin's Revolution'. Lol. Looks awesome.

06-07-2012, 02:04 AM
Looks good. Kinda wish it didnt have firefights but I guess modern* games kinda have to.

*Mean the setting not like games from this gen

06-07-2012, 02:25 AM
I can't wait to see how many different ways I can torment the citizens. Aw year.

I've got Escapist open on another tab, and it seems like I'm the only one genuinely excited for the Wii U. Assuming I can somehow get a hold of an SDK, I'd love to develop for it.

Also, new Tomb Raider and Last of Us look pretty good. Though I'm usually opposed to the "gritty realism" thing, I think these two wear it well.

This was your face when you saw the WiiU?

*yoshi face

06-07-2012, 05:17 PM
"aaaaaaaaw yeeeeeaaah."

That yoshi looks like it's getting a massive...

06-07-2012, 05:42 PM
waitwaitwaitwait... What's this about a new Earthbound?

06-08-2012, 03:48 PM
Is that for real? I thought it was just wishful thinking.... :goes of to check news:

06-08-2012, 03:49 PM
No its not real it was a joke

06-08-2012, 04:32 PM
Haloooo Fouuurrrrr mmmf

06-08-2012, 04:34 PM
waitwaitwaitwait... What's this about a new Earthbound?

If you were looking at that comic thing I posted, it was just making fun of all these silly gizmos that Nintendo apparently thinks we want instead of actual games. There is no new Earthbound as far as I know, sorry, that was sorta part of the joke...

Alrough that said, Super Mario Land, Mario Kart 7, and Zelda OOT 3D are still the top selling games for the 3DS. Which just makes me wonder who exactly is buying those games in the first place... Surely not that many of them can be people who played the classics when they were younger, can they?... Can the general public really be sucked in by hype for something they were supposed to despise as nerdy, like, four-five years ago? x_x

06-08-2012, 05:23 PM
Yeah, is not like kids buy and play games.

06-08-2012, 05:45 PM
How do kids even know what Mario and Zelda are, then? Seeing as it's the parents actually doing the buying, I'd assume it's just brand presence, but it still doesn't explain why adults are suddenly more willing to buy such things for their kids. They didn't (as much) in the nineties, and counting inflation, it isn't really all that much cheaper...

...Did the Wii really crush the "video games are for fat basement nerds" stigma all on it's own?...

For a console with just a handful of decent games that's kinda mind-exploding.

06-08-2012, 05:56 PM
Don't know about you, but when I was growing up in the 90s, every kid wanted something with Mario, Zelda, or Pokemon on it, I don't know why. The adults still bought it, too, so I ended up playing Namco Museum with my mom, and a bunch of different Mario games. Shit was tight.
The I got me a Playstation, things changed.

06-08-2012, 08:58 PM
How do you explain the current explosion in the public popularity of games, then?

According to bunch of Wiki pages aswell as the economist, video games went from a worldwide profit of $18 billion in the year 2000, to $50 billion by 2008. That's more than doubled. They are also the only companies that seemed to ignore the recession completely. So it ain't just me. >_>

You just said yourself, that's nothing new. Everybody I knew in school that even had a PS or computer had played (or at least seen) Doom and Resident Evil. It's the parent's attitude that has changed.

But whatever. Ceased caring.

06-08-2012, 09:20 PM
Actually, I never played any of those until RE4 on GameCube. I grew up playing Pacman, Mario, Starfox, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, MechWarrior, all that jazz. Then I seeked out gaming on my own, lol.
I think my first taste of the fps world was Armorines on the N64.

edit: Actually no, some time later on before that, it was some Terminator game on the SNES, it was a rail shooter. Then I got into Virtua Cop (1-2) damn those games were fun.

But yea, thing is, there's just a lot more violence on the market now. People love violence. Parents are now just looking at it like 'yknow, whatever'.

This all the way. It's like parents not caring what their child wears, says, or does, just as long as they don't end up having a child.
