So, after convincing the security guys outside of E3 (see: begging) that I was apart of the gaming press, I finally got in. And holy crap, you guys. This is glorious.
Let's do this thing:
OH MY GOD IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL
The first stop on my trip was at the new Tekken
game's booth. I haven't played any Tekken
games since Tag Tournament
, but I really enjoyed this one. Here's a picture of me with some booth babe-idge.
And... OH MY GOD, IT'S E3 MAN!!! I can't believe he's real! Oh man oh man oh man, some serious fanboying is going down right now.
After that, I went to go check out Destiny
. Holy crap, that game is good. Seriously. Of course, you should expect no less from Bungie.
I went and checked out Infamous: Second Son
after I got done with that. It is really good, you guys. Really good. I really thought I wouldn't like playing as that guy (his design gives me the shudders...), but his personality won me over.
Also, I met some peeps while I was over there. I think they were cosplaying or something, I dunno. Maybe they were apart of some bear DTOID rip-off. Still, they were nice. They did let me take my photo with them, after all.
On my way to the Tales of Xilla
booth, I passed some ghost people. Man, this place has everything, doesn't it? Kind-of freaky...
Alright, you guys. I have a confession to make: I've never played a Tales of
game. Yeah, seriously. However, that didn't stop me from enjoying this one. The combat is really fun, and while I couldn't get a solid grasp on the story, I'm sure I can do a little bit of research before hand. Still, from what I played, I recommend this if you're a fan of RPGs.
And, of course, obligatory photos with people from the game.
I'm excited for both of the new Killzones
. They're really solid FPS games (and top-down shooters when they want to be), and what I played on the floor was of high-quality. I'm still apprehensive a tad bit for the Vita one, just because of the previous FPSs on the Vita, but I'm not toooo worried.
feels a lot better than you'd think it would with a controller. I feel like the console versions are the definite versions to get because they don't always have to be online, but that's just my opinion. It's the same game as it is on the PC, though, so if you already have it, you might not want to double-dip.
Oh, hey, guys, look who I found at the Gran Turismo 6
booth! It's Ev777 from DTOID! Say hi, you guys!
Speaking of racing games, I really liked what I played of Driveclub
. It's a lot more arcade-y than Gran Turismo
, and that's how I like them.
Okay, my game of show might be Watch_Dogs
. If it can continue the quality of the demo within the full game, it might become one of my favorites. It's so fun hacking everything and feeling like you are the most awesome person in the world.
Sony really knocked it out of the park with their vita support. While they didn't show off much during their press conference, what they have on the show floor is fantastic. It doesn't get better than Tearaway
, The Walking Dead
, etc. I see a huge amount of potential in the system and can't wait to see where it goes.
Lee and Clementine whoop whoop!
is Assassin's Creed
. Still, this one is really pretty. And it has pirates! Pirates are cool! I mean, I've been carrying around swords everywhere, and pirates have swords!
Beyond: Two Souls
is shaping up quite nicely. I won't say much, because SPOILERS, but I'm really impressed with what I've played. However, I am a little worried how they're going to tie the whole thing together, but other then that, it's great!
And now... The moment you've all been waiting for... A picture of me playing Dark Souls II
. With swords in my hands. Jealous? You should be. I'm at E3, mofos.
Well, you guys, I'm afraid that's all I have to show you. I don't think they're going to allow me to come back tommorow because of what I did to Don Mattrick, but there is always hope for next year! Until then, you guys. Until then. read
