Eee, I've been committing to a few too many things lately, so this won't be as elaborate as I had planned.
Aside from the conferences I watched and summarized, there were other behind doors and non-filmed conferences from the likes of Konami, Capcom, Shigeru Miyamoto, and Square-Enix. This is where things like the next console Zelda title were hinted at. Many trailers were premiered this week, a lot of game play was showcased, and many things received greater explanation. So let's take a look at some of the incredible things that came out of E3 this year. You can also see many of these on the console of your choice.
Many of the major announcements (like God of War 3 and Assassin's Creed) I already highlighted in my previous blogs, so this time I'll be looking at everything else. There are plenty I'm ignoring, but I'm trying to point out the big titles (and will certainly be passing over games like Super Star Petz or whatever).
Here's a quick reference to my other E3 posts:
Spore Hero for the Wii. An action adventure game with the full creature creator from the PC game to use to make your hero.
Tekken 6. I shouldn't have to say anything else. If you don't already know what that is, then you probably aren't interested.
Arcania. A new take at the Gothic series. PC, 360, PS3.
Mafia 2. PC, 360, PS3
Demon's Souls A gorgeous looking PS3 RPG from SCEA and Atlus, that will hopefully play as well as it looks.
A Boy and His Blob - a new look at a classic game.
Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time for the PS3
White Knight Chronicles - PS3 RPG from SCE; might be worth getting a PS3 for.
Nostalgia - a great looking RPG for the DS from Tecmo
Rogue Warrior - PC, PS3, 360; Bethesda game based on the books by Richard Marcinko.
Muramasa: The Demon Blade - Nintendo Wii, very stylized JRPG.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom - Wii
Magna Carta II - from Atlus for the 360
Alpha Protocol - think Mass Effect but with spies instead of aliens
Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny for the PSP, now with Kratos fighting action!
Warriors Orochi 2 for the PSP
Bayonetta - sexy female gun slinging action
The Agency - MMO espionage for the PS3
Saw - You know, of intense horror torture is your thing
Batman: Arkham Asylum - one of the most anticipated games of its genre, complete with Mark Hamill Joker
Overlord II: the first was a lot of fun, but very clunky. I played the demo last night and while they certainly fixed some things (they added a much needed mini-map), there are still some problems with the controls. Also I got stuck on a DEMO, which is not a good sign. In this one you topple the Roman Empire and club baby seals to death.
Astro Boy - DS, Wii, PS3, PSP
Quantum - action adventure game from Tecmo
Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier
Fat Princess - Never has there been so much controversy over a "save the princess" game; rescue your overly large beloved princess and capture your enemy's.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - PS3 and 360, with help from Hideo Kojima.
DC Universe Online - the other highly anticipated title of its genre.
Ace Attorney Edgeworth - Aaaah I can't wait! I hope it's out in time for my birthday, or at least Christmas.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - all those boobs are just for the PS3
Heavy Rain - mystery thriller for the PS3
Alright I think that about does it. Most of the rest I've already talked about in my conference posts. Hopefully with everything you've found plenty of games to look forward to! I know I have!
