All About Wanderer5
Welcome to my profile. You can post in my blog if you want, but keep it clean. Enjoy.
Containing on from the previous blog:
Ubisoft (B+): After a couple years of being pretty meh, Ubisoft surprisingly came to the top this year. Far Cry 3 and Shootmania look good and Ubisoft show some nice stuff for the Wii U. First up is Rayman Legends which looks beautiful and interesting enough seems to be a Wii U exclusive. Then Zombi U was shown which had a nice CGI trailer and I get to this a bit more in the non conference stuff. Assassin's Creed 3 was shown which started out with with a nice CGI trailer and then went in game into the winter frontier. Graphics looks great and climbing up and around trees looks like a nice addition to the series. Combat looks even more fluid and intense then ever. Overall I was impress can I can't wait for the game.
Then Watch Dogs was shown. At first it was pretty confusing or what it was supposed to be but once the gameplay started being shown it became interesting. It looks like Assassin's Creed but with hacking and such like Deus Ex like. I especially like the part when the guy basically made a traffic mess lol. Those moments and other blackouts ought to be interesting. And looks like you switch characters judging from the ending where some parkour was shown that scream AC lol. Overall looks like a nice new IP that so far the game of the show for me alongside Assassin's Creed 3.
There were a couple moments that I didn't like through. The first was the annoying male host who wouldn't shut up at times and Just Dance 4 with Usher? And what was with the mic was that a golden mustache? Otherwise through it was a great conference.
Sony (B-): So on to Sony which overall was okay outside of a couple problems. They show a awesome montage as usual, and brought out some nice looking PS3 games. I don't care for God of War anymore but the new one does look nice, Beyond looks to be another interesting and beautiful adventure game, and The Last of Us was very beautiful looking along with a gameplay that looks to be tense with even a couple enemies. It really looks to emphasis on surviving the world and thinking of your actions carefully. Probably going to pass of the game through.Playstation Allstars was shown which honestly just doesn't look a lot of fun. I not trying to compare it to SSB but there just something about it that feels lacking, like maybe the fact of just powering up and such to defeat the other players doesn't look fun.
There were two problems. The first was the Vita. Okay so Allstars is coming to the Vita, a new Assassin's Creed game also along with the PS clas.sics that will finally be able to be playable on it, and some apps. Not too bad but honestly overall it felt very lacking. This is there new system and it needs a lot of help. I really think Sony should have shown off some more like Soul Sacrifice, but no it seems like they wanted to focus a lot of Wonderbook.
Oh Wonderbook the possibly bottom of the barrel of the conferences. It looks like a interesting concept, but something I wouldn't bother. So they show off the first book Book of Spell which is based on the Harry Potter series and while it look cool at first, it got boring quite fast, BUT SONY SPENDS LIKE 20 MINUTES ON IT, MY GOD IT WAS TORTURE! Talk about dragging like hell. Should have use at least half of the time to talk about another Vita game.>.>
Whew so now today:
Nintendo (C): Nintendo did the same as Sony where their handheld got shove off just about the whole time but there is a conference tomorrow so I hoping good things from that. What was shown of the 3DS was good. Not a huge fan of New Super Mario Bros but 2 looks to be good and it interesting that coins are a huge focus in it along with some Super Mario Bros 3 elements. Paper Mario got name Paper Mario: Sticker Star and looks to focus on stickers to use to upgrade Mario and use in battle. Luigi Mansion Dark Moon looks great too and I actually forgot that I gotten the first one so I probably give that a try.
Now for the Wii U. Mostly a dissapointment but there were some neat thing especially the use of the Wii U pad with for example Batman Arkham City and Zombi U. Pikmin is coming back and looks neat especially with those rock pikmin and good looking graphics. Like NSMB2 I not interested in NSMB U but it has some nice backgrounds, and Lego City Undercover look good.
Then there was SiNG which looks bad but at least it amusing looking lol and Just Dance 4 was shown again with a more awkward dance but Usher didn't come back. And then there Nintendo Land which is Wii Sports theme park style. While it doesn't look bad compare to Wonderbook it also dragged on and it didn't help that they went back to it again when they were ending.>.> Sadly no price or date for the Wii U either but I already knew that.
3DS conference and some GS Live show stuff tomorrow.
Hello, well E3 is upon us again with today have some conferences, so here my impressions of them, which will only be two since I started this blog too late lol so I too tired to type my impressions for Ubisoft and Sony.
Microsoft (C-): So lets start with the good stuff. Right off the bat Microsoft shows off its big game in the fall, Halo 4 first. Had some impressive live action and then turn into some impressive looking in-game graphics where the chief enters a jungle and fights a new type of enemy. It looks great and good luck to 343 in making their first big Halo game. I hate Cortana new design through.
There was Tomb Raider, which looks surperb through I hope they have another demo focusing on the survival aspect because the demo shown just fuels the oh this is copying from Uncharted. Beside that TR is definitely one of my most hype games for next year. Then there are Splinter Cell Blacklist, Forza Horzion, and Black Ops 2 (brown color galore through) which had good demos/trailer. Black Ops II looks to shake it up a bit by having choices to chose a couple paths in SP so that can be cool.
Now then since I don't have a 360 it really hard to care for some of the apps and such that were shown like the smartglass or the ESPN (through I wouldn't have care much anyway if I did own a 360) and this part felt like a drag. Most of the kinect stuff shown wasn't great either through at least it wasn't as bad as the last couple of years, but that 3D angry bird like game will bring in some gifs. Then there were those 3 XBLA games which so far only the one with the pinball seem interesting. The God Decsend or whatever it was call look like crap and the one with the motorcycle well I didn't know what the heck that was about lol.
The lowest point is definitely the concert with Usher. Okay so Dance Central 3 is revealed, cool the series been sucessful and good, but I guess showing it in-game would be so lame so lets bring out a concert with a crappy singer! The game was shown a bit I guess but it kind of hard to tell behind at times with all of the smoke.
EA (B-): Honestly I don't have a lot to say about this one. Overall it was a decent conference. EA had quite a few of games to show off and games like Dead Space 3 and Sim City 5 look cool but I not interested in any of the games shown beside one that almost instantly became of the top games at E3 and that the new Need for Speed Most Wanted.Criterion Games take about round at Need for Speed and it looking really good. First shown was a race while avoiding the cops which look fun, but it was after that my hype went skyhigh; this game was openworld and had elements that is pretty similar to Burnout Paradise (which is one of my favorite racers) while you can toy with cops throughout. I was disappointed that a sequel or sort to BP wasn't made but now those feelings are gone and I will check this out sometime down the road.
So from this point both Tomb Raider and Need for Speed are the top of the pack for me, and gets beaten by two games from Microsoft but I get to those tomorrow along with Sony, Nintendo and Gamespot Live show Day 1.
Which means it is legal for me to drink! But anyway yeah another birthday has come, but it going to be a quiet one. I going to be seeing the Avengers with my girlfriend in a couple hours however, so that going to be exciting.
My Recent Reviews
Here is a video I made in my motion graphics class. Just a test that uses the filter effects. The program is Adobe After Effects.
Just me trying out this game and recording it (you can do it in-game). Pretty interesting game and it free on GFWL so I say it worth a try.
