So, I know that there will probably be a -ton- of posts like this one on the site from now until the end of E3, and I will probably get swept aside with all the rest, but even still, I figure it's worth a shot, see if anyone wants to see what I thought.

I didn't watch the Microsoft Conference just because I don't own an Xbox and don't really care about what they are doing. However, I was really intrigued by the "Milo" project. The idea of a virtual kid that read your tone of voice and see your facial expressions is a certainly interesting idea. However, I can't see this getting added to games without the game just having you say key words...I don't know, but it seems like it can't be much more than a tech demo.

I did watch the Nintendo one, and it seems like it was an improvement over last year's. At least they had some games that we actually cared about this time, not just Wii Music. the Motion plus seems interesting, but I hope it's not too expensive to buy, that would be such a pain in my wallet. I don't know how I feel about the new Metroid...Samus is talking? But, Mario Galaxy 2 (Despite looking almost identical to the original) Seems excting and worth playing, and the New Super Mario Bros. Wii looks like Mario + Four Swords, so hopefully that will be fun too.

One thing that Nintendo seemed to tone back on was the casual games. However, their presence was still clear as day. There's nothing wrong with casual stuff, the problem comes with having them at E3. The people who will be playing these games ARE NOT watching E3, so stop showing them. :)

Lastly, I watched only part of the Sony Conference, because life did its best to get in the way, but I saw a few games. Uncharted 2 looks lots of fun, like an action movie. God of War 3 looks like a glorified Beat-em-up, but I haven't played the others (Yet, they are on my list) so I can't say for sure. Sony has it's own WiiMote now, and it looks somewhat impressive, the 1-to-1 tracking was very accurate judging from the videos. However, it's a blatant WiiMote, so I don't know if it'll ever take off.

I still miss Sly Cooper and Jak and Daxter...Hopefully they come back soon. :D

And, that's my rant.
