E3 Conference – Day 1

Well it is the first true day of EB, and I thought I would give a review of the “true” day one.

The day starts off with Nintendo press conference. The big excitement was the new Wii U Controller. It has all the functionalities of the regular controllers but with a touch screen. They mentioned how it will revolutionize game play. I have to be honest, the initial titles Nintendo showed were nothing spectacular. Nintendo showed a new Super Mario and its use of the Wii U was “meh”. They also showed a WII Fit game were you are jumping and you are using the Wii U to help land. (again a “meh”)

Then Ubisoft showcased Zombi U for the new Wii U. Wow… just wow. The game is like all other zombie games, but with the controller it gets really enhanced. At one point you are coming up to a numeric security pad. As you get to it, the screen on the WII U becomes the numeric pad while the TV screen shows what is happening behind you. It is really cool. Here is a trailer…

The rest of the day is my favorite…nothing but trailers and talking about games. Here are my personal highlights. Warning: some of these trailers are not safe for work :)

Borderlands 2: Just a fun game. view here…

Medal Of Honor: War fighters: Canada is one of the “war fighters” in it. (roughly 1:07 in the trailer) view here….

Gears of War:Judgement: Enough said. view here…

Tomb Raider: Is it me or is Laura Croft not as hot in this game? Judge yourself. view here…

Star Wars 1313: A mature game set in the Star Wars world. The game play just looks amazing. view here…

World Of Battleship: When I think of Hasbro battleship, this trailer is what I think of. I don’t think of aliens attacking Earth while Rihanna and Liam Neeson have to think of a way to save the world. How can a free to play MMO get it and movie producers cant? Anyways, watch the trailer and feel better about the world because someone understands what something about battleships should look like. view here…

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes: It has everything you need ..Lego. view here…

When I saw the next trailer I shook my head in disgust and wondered how this became an actual game…

NBA Baller Beats: I am not making this up, the premise of this Kinect game is to bring an ACTUAL basketball into your living room. You will then practice dribbling in your LIVING ROOM to music.

So let me understand this, you want me to dribble a large ball in my living room to music? Umm how many people own living rooms that have carpet in it? Tell me how you are going to dribble on carpet?

How about your neighbors who live below you? I guess that is how they came up with the name Baller. It is what will happen to you when your neighbor downstairs comes up to see you and “clocks you one” for dribbling a bloody basketball in your living room. You will be balling like crazy. (Actually I think you will be balling because you spent money on this crappy game.) view here…

Well that is my highlights for today.
