Microsoft's conference is done, tons of information and a bunch of cool stuff announced. I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the stuff I found interesting.
  1. Last FM for Xbox
  2. Microsoft Motion Sensor Natal (lmao Sega activator)
  3. Metal Gear Rising (Raiden May Cry? Ninja Raiden? Shinraiden?)
  4. Left 4 dead 2
  5. New Halo's (totally called it)
  6. Timed Modern Warfare 2 Map packs
  7. Games on demand service for XBL


Edit --
Watching EA press conference now on G4 and just wanted to point something Ironic.

Back in the day EA was putting out shit games and making mad cash.
Now EA is putting out new interesting IP's and loses billions and lays off thousands.

=/

So yeah Nintendo conference was weak sauce. Crushinator totally called it. Boring with a few bones thrown to core gamer in the Form of Mario games and Golden Sun for the DS. Metroid however added a little meat to that bone so good stuff. I mean it was still better then Ubisofts conference. beigelaugh.gif

Shit man, that new metroid is megaton, though. And i'm totally psyched for mario galaxy 2. I was putting money on them announcing a new Wii zelda title, but i'm more than happy for Galaxy 2.

wow, Sony Eye toy motion sensor looks to be exactly what I wanted the Wii controller to be.

God of War demo looked awesome.

Uncharted 2 looks amazing and I think sleeper hit of PS conference was the Modracer gamer. Looks like what Excitebike would look like if it was brought to current gen consoles.

Nintendo continues to prove they are on crack by alienating their hardcore fans. What the hell? Another attachment accessory that checks your pulse? Now I can find out if I am having a heart attack after playing Wii Sports. Yippee.


Mario Galaxy 2 is a surprise. Rare we get two Mario games in one console generation. So this tells me if this was the N64 days Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2 would have been one complete game. But damn Galaxy was excellent. I'm amazed that it now seems it was not "finished" in order to make the release date. I feel kind of cheated for not getting a whole new themed Mario game. But hell bring on some more Galaxy.



FFXIV hell yes! Though only for the simple fact that with WoW with its firm grip on the MMO market maybe we will get a FF Online game that is a lot faster and easier to pick up. This is wishful thinking on my part because I think if it had the speed and feel of FFXII battle system it would be more enjoyable. I never liked the stand in place and beat on a rabbit for 5 min like its a freakin boss. From the trailers though it looks like FFXI 2. No idea why they would not change the art direction. . . But I hear it is going to be free to play. So that is a plus if it turns out that way.


Castlevania: Lord of Shadow looks awesome! But can they get it right? Its a big mystery to me on how Metroid series makes the jump to 3D and still retains the Metroid feel. But the 3D Castlevania games feel like Devil May Cry/Onimusha/God of War rip offs. But maybe that is what Konami wants for those games? Of cours we will always have what has become the true Castlevania experience on DS. But Kojima and his studio has a hand in this, and Kojima is among the gaming gods, so I have faith. Castlevania is in my top 5 for favorite series of games.


And OMG! New Metroid! It looks like they trying to add the God of War flavor too. I keep thinking its going to be Metroid vs Castlevania with these two new games. Bring it on! I always imagined Samus kicking ass like that anyway.

LOL at FF7 coming on PSN. Square please stop kicking us in the balls. Release the damn remake already.

From what I've read about the game it certainly has me interested. I really did enjoy the FFXI class system and since it seems they're going for a more casual gamer, this one may actually be good and I'm most likely gonna give it a try once the game drops.

Also

A member of the Japanese press asked about the game's graphics engine. The Square Enix staff explained that the trailer showed both pre-rendered and in-game engine sequences. Specifically, the scene with the Galka fighting is processed real-time in-game. This gives players a good first glimpse to how the graphics will look in the game.

That's quite impressive but I'm highly suspicious of the claim.

Also Scan where did you hear free to play? Your homies with Nobuo Uematsu????

Yeah, if you watch the video in HD, you can clearly see which parts are pre rendered and which are real time. The galka fight is definetly real time.

An MMO with that level of graphics will certainly be a feat. TREY 4 LYFE.

I like how we all hate FFXI, but we're chomping at the bit to play FF14 beigelaugh.gif

We all want to play a good MMO, including FFXIV. FFXI was like the true mmorpg AT experience that never really came to together for everyone. It was at a weird time during the AT, and quite frankly was an alienating experience for me personally. The game is more old-school MMORPG styled and thus, segregates players by levels, class make-up, and gear in a more stringent way, unlike PSO. Also unlike WoW, soloing is out of the question, so waiting to get into a PT, adds to the mundane experience of playing outside a dedicated crew. Why play a game by yourself with drudgerious level-grinding and lame strangers? The strict, or more traditional mmo nature of FFXI made for a super casual fail. I had plenty of MMO experience beforehand and for me it was more of same, which is fine if you've got your crew to play with, but not so fine if your crew is 3 months away through laborious grinding.

The new FFXIV must learn from WoW, not in terms of game play, but in making sure the game has a strong casual backbone, so you can pick-up and play, whenever and however.

Heard from the site that is all things MMO: mmosite.com. But it turns out they made an error in their reporting. It will be pay to play. Oh well. Having a subscription for a new MMO these days with WoW around automatically sets the game up for failure. Microtranaction is the way to go if a company wants to have a chance in the MMO market. Sure it will be good, and will have everyone from FFXI; which is still doing well. But should be great since they trying to make it more casual.

I was hoping if they ever did another Online game the character design would be something different. That is what I expect from each Final Fantasy game. That while the FF elements are there, each has its own unique look and feel.


FFXIII is looking sexier with each new trailer released. I'm calling it now. This one will be the true successor to FF7. The boss theme is the most kicks ass thing I've heard in this series in a long time too.
