It's Friday and what a week it's been, so now is a time to reflect on the E3 week. What have been your favourite announcements? Are you disappointed or impressed with this year's E3? How does it rate amongst previous E3 Expos?

Also what do you think any of the publishers / developers could have done more to impress?

Let's Chat!

im gutted that i read the division is not due out until winter 2014 :'( hope thats false straight away, i think MS have been a big let down while at the same time being arrogant twats about it! but the game line up for the console has impressed me, either way i will be getting both maybe even on day 1 depending how much money i come in to! i just want game prices now as amazon has listed everything at 54.99 but i dont think that will be right i would say 45-50 max!!! any idea when we normally get new prices for a new gen? cant remember with this gen

Microsoft could have retire from console market - that would be impressive :)

Just got an email from Shopto, saying the PS4 is out in November. Can you please confirm that this is true?

I enjoyed just watching most of it. The Division was always next winter as it was basically what Watch Dogs is now. I really liked the look of AC4 too, and just the whole thing. Sadly the PS4 may not meet 'supplying demand', but that's just based on an increased number of pre-orders they didn't forsee after E3 and Microsofts bomb.

I was disappointed by Microsoft and their attitude towards their customers (Just how arrogant sounded Don Matrick when saying that if people don't have online connection , they should stick with the 360). I was disappointed with the announcement of Xbox360 SuperSlim. The rumors were true. You won't have One box, you will have a multiple of boxes (TV receiver, Xbox360 and Xbox One). I am impressed how Sony managed to use that. Microsoft didn't even announced some way that will provide backward compatibility. Sony did. They will be using GaiKai (tried it a while ago, it is great). Regarding the games. Well, I was disappointed with Batman Arkham Origins. It seems like a rehash of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. They could have at least changed something. I am sure that it will be a great game, and I will buy it, but I don't know, I wanted more :D Next up, Dark Souls 2. No gameplay, just gameplay trailer, that was amazing. The mirror boss looks very interesting. I can't wait to get my hands on the game :) Games that got my attention: The Witcher 3, TitalFall, The Crew, The Division, Halo (I hate Xbox One, but I am a sucker for Halo :D ), Final Fantasy XV, Assassin's Creed IV, Thief, 1886, Lords of Shadow 2. Games that I was not that impressed with: Killer Instinct (free to play, with only one character. Not really free now isn't it), Forza 5 (sure it looks good, but will it be a graphical only improvement? ), GT 6 (same as Forza), NFS Rivals. The other were ok, not impressed, but not disappointed either.

Shep probably right about the Division as Watch Dogs was announced last E3 and is only coming out this winter. I was a little underwhelmed by the whole show really there was nothing really new and make me think wow this is what the next gen is all about.

It's been an interesting E3 and whilst Microsoft was given a bloody nose over DRM it's disappointing to hear Sony may have been telling porky pies with regards to their own DRM policies (or at least other publishers on their console). Although the game line up for Xbox One impressed me almost everything else put me off. Meanwhile, Sony reinforced my want of their next console. Game wise, nothing overly grabbed me. There are a few interesting concepts out there (Destiny and Titan Fall to name but two) but there also seems to be a lot of sequels (Assassins Creed 4, Battlefield 4, Diablo 3). It would be nice if there was more drive for new and unique content stemming from the big publishers and not leaving it in the hands of smaller companies creating smaller games for the PSN. Still, I appreciate why publishers, especially with the financial situation of today's markets, would play it safe. Other than that the only thing I was looking forward to was more news on Final Fantasy games. Then they showed the trailer for Final Fantasy XIII Versus, sorry, Final Fantasy XV. I have to say, this is the first time a Final Fantasy game has both filled me with excitement and trepidation. The battle systems seems to be completely got rid of but the trailer was both gorgeous and thrilling. Definitely a pre-order and a game I'll be playing with all my fingers crossed (so I hope the PS4 controller is ergonomic in this way)

The big highlights for me were Destiny and The Division. Other stuff I liked... The Evil Within, Planetside 2, Warframe, The Order, Dark Souls 2, Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4.

I thought as E3's go, it was pretty decent. I've certainly seen worse. at least this one didn't include ponchos and fistbumping. I would like to own both consoles eventually but i would like to see an apology from the arrogant twats at microsoft over the whole "if you don't like it, we have xbox 360" shit. Apart from that, it was the same as every other E3, alot of hype, not much in the way of diversity and me getting angry at the twats from gamepsot over the shit they spout over their twitter accounts.

@Troublemaker, without giving away any spoilers how far did you get into The Last of Us yesterday? It's a great game, only criticism I have of it, is that it was a bit slow to get started but now its amazing. I got a Vita yesterday too which was good. Haven't spent much time playing with it yet as I've been playing TLOU, going to try and play some Soul Sacrifice a bit later.

I got through the museum on the way to the Capitol Building. Then I turned it off. Bless her, my dog doesn't like the sound the clickers make. Eh we're scary the crap outta her. Excellent game though. Glad I started on normal. The combat is unforgiving if you have to go loud. Survivor + is gonna be a bitch

Nothing worse than sneaking up on a clicker for a stealth takedown and realising you need a weapon in hand to beat their arse with. Just turned around and ate my face, after I'd cleared out the entire area :(

Not really been following anything E3 the last couple of days due to birthday celebrations, caught a few snippets, but I don't feel like I've missed much. Only thing that really impressed me was Nintendo's line up, but unfortunately all the best stuff from that isn't coming till next year, still they have a steady launch schedule lined up for the rest of the year, so that should keep me happy in the meantime.

I got annoyed after being killed a few times by clickers so I saved up supplements and used it on 1 Shiv Master upgrade, so now I can Shiv clickers when they try to kill me providing I have a Shiv on me. I'm doing it on normal too, taking the stealth kill approach most of the time, but will beat the crap out of people with a pipe if need be.

@DW, I don't want to say how far just in case I ruin it, but I'm checking everywhere for everything so I might have picked up more than people who aren't checking every room/area. It is a brilliant game.

I have news about Xbox one: Xbox Support on twitter have said family is determined by "within a household". https://twitter.com/XboxSupport/status/345221223975890944 I knew there would be a down side. The last of us is amazing, I couldn't put it freaking down, until 3am, when I was so tired I couldn't shoot straight.

Evil within looks great, Interested in The Crew aswell. Buzzing for Destiny, Ryse and Dead Rising 3. Not fussed about Forza at all though. Wonder what the future for Arcade games on the Xbox One will be aswell. Theres got to be a way for me to bring the ones from my 360 across, as I have around 50 of them.

From what i've heard it is so linear that during the platforming sections it tells you which platform to jump to next ...
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
I would guess there educated guesses and they wont cost any more then the prices they have there. As Sony said the costs are staying around the same I would guess xboxs arent gonna be higher but with all the PR own goals recently wouldnt surprise me if they announced higher prices.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Yeah got some like FIFA £47, D4 £44, Battlefield £49 etc.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
If anything I'd expect them to be cheaper than 360 games with all this DRM & stuff, that would surely be welcome but doubt it.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
I doubt it because once a console is out, they KNOW people have ot buy atleast one game, or have no console, so they can charge closer to RRP really.

I not sure what causes it, but I have heard if you play offline it doesn't do it, have not got around to trying it though, lucky for me I only lost about 30 min of gameplay the first time around then the second time I noticed it and lost about ten minutes or so, but a friend of mine said he lost four hours worth today.
