“Well, no one’s ever done that before,” said the Crytek employee after he’d finished watching my playthrough of Crysis 3’s E3 demo. My Crysis 1 instincts had kicked in and I’d just snuck around just about every opponent in the whole 30 minute demo, taking out just a few turrets and soldiers as needed.
I remember playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted at E3 and being incredibly afraid for the life of my scraped up Ford Mustang. I’d just finished competing with several other racers for the longest jump off of a ramp and had come out with the third highest score; the thing was, the guys who held the scores above me had been taken out and I’d be the winner if I survived.
Vagary.tv got some hands-on time with upcoming shooter, Borderlands 2, at E3.
“Pfft, yeah, it’s totally just a Smash Brothers clone,” I’d hear some E3 attendees say. A wise person also once said that mockery is the realm of the weak, and that person would probably agree with me that Playstation All Stars Battle Royale is shaping up to be one of the most addictive Playstation multiplayer games I’ve experienced in a while.
Don stopped by the Smart As.. kiosk at Sony’s E3 booth, see what he thought.
We were shown a short demonstration of the upcoming strategy game, Omerta- City of Gangsters.
Kalypso had a real treat at their booth this year; Dark, a stealth action game with some kickin’ cell-shaded graphics.
Bethesda showed off it’s recently announced MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online, at E3.
It’s no surprise that 5th Cell, the developers of games such as Drawn to Life and Scribblenauts, would be up for making a third person shooter unlike any other third person shooter. I was surprised that their latest project, Hybrid, works as well as it does.
Don got some hands-on time with the upcoming Vita release, LittleBigPlanet Vita.
