Thoughts on E3 2012 conferences
Wasn’t E3′s conference meetings awesome this year?
Hoo boy… E3, who here doesn’t watch this and expect greatness from all of these wonderful companies? You get new games, new consoles, new hardware, new everything! Well… maybe not everything is new and original and exciting.
Let me start off by apologizing for the quality and lateness of this comic, I had to leave state, and this was drawn in a car ride to Arizona. Also I really had to think about what I thought about this year’s conferences. As much as you guys hate it, I’m going to lay down my opinions on all of the conferences and try to be somewhat reasonable since I know I’ll get a ton of flack from fanboys.
Now I took a lot of notes on everything that was only shown in the conferences only, no showroom floor stuff, just what was talked about by all them big-wigs. The first thing I did was completely forget about games that were nothing but cinematics with no gameplay shown whatsoever! I’m not getting hyped over another Dead Island, been burned before.
Microsoft to me really pushed forward Kinect, probably more so than last year! I’m honestly surprised they didn’t just make a console with the damn thing installed inside! It needs to just curl up and die, and that whole Smart Glass thing with it doesn’t endear me to loving the Xbox more than I already do. South Park looked like the best of the bunch, Halo 4 a close second.
Second conference I watched was EA, dear god… what was new here? Maybe it’s bias on my part, EA has burned a good majority of us, and maybe I’m keeping my distance in order to protect myself. Nothing however made me stop and say “WOW! I cannot wait to play that!” If you’re into the games they showed, cool, but we should of seen something MORE from EA.
More disgusting bias from me, Sony pissed me off this year. It was a number of things that got to me, but it really was in the end, how long and drawn out their conference was. That’s a minor gripe on my behalf though, what got to me is how they’re basically becoming Nintendo with each stupid toy and crossover game they release. Wonderbook was the stupidest thing I have seen from them! Oh, let’s not forget Playstation All-Stars.
Putting all that that aside, Last of Us… looked… awesome! If I’m going to get a PS3, it’ll be for that game (and other older games for that system), and not to turn it into the next Wii U with a pricy Vita.
Now… Ubisoft and Nintendo, I feel like I should group them both together as it seems like a majority of the Wii U’s support is Ubisoft! They’ve still got great games on the other consoles, and honestly if I was to list off the best games for every console this year, you would see an Ubisoft game listed more than once! They stole the show, even though Nintendo’s showings were fairly weak! But honestly, I think that the Wii U is looking very promising, but a price would of been nice, along with a release date.
Well, I guess my comic expresses my thoughts more clearly than words can right now.
