E3 update part 2

Here goes….

Epic Mickey (Wii)

Get ready Mickey

Okay this game was pretty surprising. Surprising because it actually looked pretty deep. You play as everyone’s favourite mouse, who has accidentally screwed around with a world where Walt Disney’s rejected characteres reside. Because you feel like such a bad guy, you decide to fix everything up with your magical paintbrush (who would’ve guessed >_>) which has awsun paowahs, like erasing walls (paint thinner) and building stuff (paint). This game looks good.

What have you done, Mickey?!

Dead Space 2 (PS3, XBox 360, PC)

Necromorph juice

Ready for some more necromorphs? The bad-ass of engineering, Isaac, is back, along with a new suit and some new tools. Expect some more frights, and now for the first time, multiplayer. The Ps3 version will also come with Dead Space: Extraction as a Move-capable title.

Who wouldn't kill for a suit like that?

Final Fantasy XIV (PS3)

It's about the team!

From what I’ve seen, this game puts huge emphasis on teamwork. Personally, I would’ve been more happy to see more Versus XIII than XIV. Gameplay looks pretty decent, and it looks like some of our favourite summons are coming back as bosses e.g. Bahamut. This looks like a happy and cutesy Japanese version of WoW, with lots of focus on defeating big bosses with your buddies.

Bahamut!

Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS)

Fly boy~

Kid Icarus is back and he looks fantastic in the revival of this game franchise. It combines aerial and ground combat, and from what we’ve seen, this game looks awesome. It also combines magic with more traditional physical attacks, and it’s pretty damn fast-paced. I don’t really have more info, besides the fact that you’ll still be in Palutena, fighting the forces of Medusa the Gorgon, who include Cereberus.

Just another day in Palutena...

Patapon 3 (PSP)

Let's give 'em a beating.

So apparantly Patapon is getting yet another sequel. However, you’re not playing as some god, but rather, the ‘hero’ of your tribe, carrying the drums. Some people also say how you won’t be able to transfer your army from Patapon 2 over to P3. Weird. However what’s awesome is that you’ll apparantly be able to host 4v4 battles locally.

LittleBig Planet (PS3)

The creatinator in use

This game should be in every primary school’s curriculum. What it provides is an amazing platform for experimentation and the imagination that is FUN. I really enjoyed seeing what the top designers could do in 24 hours with LBP2. It was fantastic. I cannot wait for this game.Definitely a first day buy for me.

Random minigame

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

"That guard needs to be paying more attention. His buddy's got a hole in his face"

This game looks pretty damn different to the first Ghost Recon. I guess the franchise needed a breath of fresh air. Now while the footage looked really sweet, it just came across to me that it was pretty damn n00b friendly. I mean, now you have optical cloaking, which makes close quarter kills pretty damn simple to execute. Not to forget, all you really need to do is get up close, and press a button. I really want to play this game, but if it turns out to be a gung-ho poor man’s version of MGS4 or Splinter Cell: Conviction, I’m going to be disappointed.

Noob friendly what.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (PS3)

Gabriel - with a name like that, I'd also be depressed

This game looks and sounds orgasmically good. It has, by far, the best voice-acting I’ve heard this E3, and the music we heard in the trailers was brilliant. I wouldn’t blame you if you said that it looks like a Medieval version of the God of War series, especially when the game places a large emphasis on these epic boss battles. However, is that necessarily a bad thing? Bring it on, Gabriel Belmont.

Gabriel Belmont - the Indiana Jones of his time

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)

A mix between Celda Link and Twilight Link

Well to be honest, what we saw of this game in E3 was relatively underwhelming. I’m not sure what to say about the graphics, being a mixed between cell-shaded and realistic. Also apparantly the controls were pretty annoying to handle with. However, Miyamoto definitely pointed out that the game was still far from finished, so there’s plenty of time to fix up these problems.

Where would any hero be without a slingshot

For the time being, that’s it folks. I know I’ve missed out on some of the big titles like the new Mortal Kombat, Silent Hill 8, and most of the fps’s. If I have time, I’ll come back to them.

    Looking foward to zelda – the fight mechanics seem to be very interesting – looks like you’ll actually be able to block and parry. Depends on how good the AI is at parrying as well, I guess.

    Also, fail graphics 😦

    yeah it’s Motion plus capable as well, which should be awesome.

    fail graphix are fail. just goes to show that when u decide to mix 2 good things together, you won’t necessarily get scrumptious cakey.

    Legend of Zelda looked good. Until Miyamoto had that hilarious fail attempt at the controls. I really liked LBP2. It looked amazing, I like what they’ve done with the game and how they’ve opened it up. It’s simply fantastic. 3DS continues to surprise with Pitt coming back. I was pretty impressed tbh. I didn’t like FFXIV…just doesn’t look right….all and all though it was a fantastic E3 and I can’t wait for some of these games to hit the shelves

    Putting LBP2 in every primary school curriculum is a very interesting idea – it’s definitely one way for kids to put their creativity to good use.

    Although that idea probably won’t get implemented, considering how much a PS3 still costs…

    Instead of giving them free laptops, give them free ps3s or 3DSs. That’ll be an AWESOME idea.
