Wow. That’s all I could think of when I first saw EA’s lineup for PAX 2008. There are so many big name titles here:
- Crysis Warhead
- Mercenaries 2
- Mirror’s Edge
- Warhammer Online
- Dragon Age Origins
- Rock Band 2
- A sequel to one of EA’s biggest franchises
- Dead Space
I’m most interested in playing Mirror’s Edge out of all of these games. I keep hearing such high praise for the game. Check out .tiff and Reverend Anthony’s impressions of the game from E3 in the above video.
I would say I was really most looking forward to Dead Space, but I actually had some very extensive hands-on with the game just last week and I’ll have the hands-on preview coming eventually (here’s a preview: f*cking buy it). Also, I think I’m seeing most of these games this Thursday as well, so I may end up skipping EA’s booth all together this year. Sorry EA, no hard feelings.
And this may just be a wild guess (NOT based on PAX 2007 and E 4 All), but I’m going to go ahead and say that the Rock Band 2 booth will have the most people visiting it than any other game at the show. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Nick Chester (who previewed Rock Band 2 at E3) and Dtoider power-glove never leave the Rock Band 2 stage.
