I was lucky enough to get to go to E3 this year. For which i am eternally grateful. It also made me fall back in love with the whole idea of video games and gave me a fresher perspective on them.
Although the Nintendo conference got some stick generally and some embarrassingly underwhelming applause in certain sections, i still watched it like a slack-jawed dork throughout. I have to admit, I’m still looking forward to New Super Mario Bros. U and Pikmin 3 in the glorious render quality they really should have had six years ago, but I’ll still be playing Assassins Creed 3 on my XBox. o_o
Nike+ Kinect Training was announced at the Microsoft conference, and the press area was right next to the constantly heaving Halo 4 zone. \o/ After working my heart out on the fitness title at Sumo for the last three years i actually nearly peepee’d in my knickknocks when i saw it all. The presentation and the trailer for the game were really Charlie Big Potatoes. it. looked. ace.
Another Sumo game quite rightly ruled the Sega area this year (And the sides of the escalators in the main entrances); Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed. Which we can refer to as ‘Sega Racing’ if we need to. Another brilliant title our brave boys and girls are making right now. I’m dead prouda alla the dudes at Sumo, stirling works.
I didn’t get to spend enough time lolly-gogging round the show but of some really exciting games, my game of the show was Ni No Kuni, a Japanese RPG styled by Studio Ghibli; it looks like a Ghibli film with UI. I cannot wait to settle down and play this game for a day or two. I’ll have it on 3DS and PS3 please.
