Arnt you the guy who gave up video gaming? 

#3 Posted by AnimalFather (800 posts) -

 
yes but i came back but im thinking of leaving. the creative leads at game co companies need to be replaced. the average guy here on this forum could come up with a better game premise thn 99% of the stuff announced.

Do you only look at the blockbuster triple A titles and then make that your image of video games?

#5 Posted by AnimalFather (800 posts) -

well tell me what NEW games were announced that you liked?
#6 Posted by Crash_Happy (664 posts) -

There's a few titles that I'll be looking at. Not the best E3 for me though so far. Still time and still lots of information to filter out.

#7 Posted by Tanikaze (68 posts) -

Dunno if they were actually announced at this E3 but Bastion and From Dust look cool. Part of my point is that you can't look at E3 keynotes and then go "yeah that's all the games coming out". There's other venues, other developers, and things not mentioned in those press conferences. Maybe a lot of indie games and whatever else is out there aren't for you either but you kinda just seem like you're being a drama queen over press conferences.

Nothing blew me away because everything that got press time I already knew about before the show started, and everything new was a stupid Kinect/Move game or, in the case of Microsoft, it was Gears/Halo number 353463634634 that I don't care about. That said, there is a ton of games coming out this year that I'm looking forward too, but they just are not getting press time because they are not the big shooter all the cool kids like, and that's all these dam companies want to talk about.

Tons.  I'll start you with Overstrike, though.
#11 Posted by niamahai (1405 posts) -

that new Brother in Arms game looks kinda cool.

Far Cry 3 looks insane. Have I told you how insane it was?

erg Aliens Colonial Marines? Kinda pumped for that.

that Muramasa/OdinSphere developer new game with big boob/butt ladies looks kinda nice

Adventures of Young Lara Croft makes the wait for 2012 unbearable.

I wuv game developers. They are kinda cool & overworked people.

This is bullshit, sure some could come up with a more unique idea but they can not make a viable game that is actually fun.

#13 Posted by xaLieNxGrEyx (2605 posts) -

IM LEAVING GAMING. WE'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR YEARS AND WE'RE GETTING A DIVORCE AND ALL OF GIANTBOMB MUST KNOW lulz they'll never know I'm full of shit and no one cares lulz
#14 Posted by KillerEwok (19 posts) -

Uhhh, new Hitman game? I'm pretty excited about that.

#15 Posted by MiamiRedHawks (914 posts) -

I'm excited to see what Overstrike is all about. Four player co-op spy action could be pretty cool.

What he said!

Just because you have a 'fun' concept doesn't mean you can turn it into a full fledge retail product.

All you arm-chair devs can go eat a duck.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Overstrike, Far Cry 3,, Band of Brothers, Luigi's Mansion.

Also, dude. You actually thinking that any one of us here could seriously develop a game ourselves better than anything out there just speaks to your ignorance of games in general, which is why I'm not surprised to hear that you "left". You clearly have no respect for the medium.

#24 Posted by Pinworm45 (4088 posts) -

Same. Nothing new interested me, either. 
 
But at least there was nice info on games I do want, like ME3.

#25 Edited by Beforet (2918 posts) -

Does MGS count? I know it's not new but it's the only announcement that made me go "hey, I might buy that."

Edit: 7 was the best year of my damned life, bro. Give me games for those guys any day.

#26 Edited by AnimalFather (800 posts) -

overstrike? are you guys serious? it looks like a game for 7year olds. 
 
No im talking about NEW games announced for the first time like halo 4.
#27 Posted by Kibblez (702 posts) -

You don't like games, then.

#28 Posted by gunslingerNZ (1902 posts) -

@AnimalFather: Rayman looks great.

#29 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2452 posts) -

Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Kart 3DS, Halo 4, Farcry 3, and Fable: the journey. Tons more games that weren't announced here but that the extra info got me excited for.

#30 Edited by Spayde (2 posts) -

It was a pretty unexciting E3, but Hitman Absolution is something I'm certainly looking forward to. I'm also excited to see what minecraft will look like on the xbox, will this be coming out after beta is finished or will it just be a completely different kind of thing?

Because Halo is for adults!

#32 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Same here, nothing new and interesting was announced.
 
Oh great, a remake of Halo and a new Halo trilogy. I really wanted more FPS!

#33 Edited by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

Dark Souls and Skyrim. It's not tough to be excited about either.

If we're talking solely unannounced titles, I'd say the new Pixeljunk "game".

#34 Posted by jetsetwillie (857 posts) -

yeah ive seen loads at E3 that has given me a gaming hard on. Skyrim, Batman, BF3, Dark Souls, Uncharted 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, SWTOR, Twisted Metal, Tomb Raider, Bastion, The Journey... plenty. 
 
maybe gamings just not for you any more. 

#35 Posted by delorean99947 (228 posts) -
@AnimalFather: If you don't play games because they have a unique art style and you don't look at the games true potential for kick ass guns and co-op gameplay, just leave these forums.

I'm so afraid they are going to turn this into a third person cover shooter with stealth elements.

#37 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Does Uncharted III not count? Because it's going to be fucking awesome. 
 
And bro. Lego City. Srsly. Lego City. HOW ARE YOU NOT PUMPED?

#38 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7615 posts) -

While I don't think we need a new Halo game yet, I'm still pretty excited about Halo 4, it's the only FPS I'm still interested in playing.. Nintendo had a lot of good announcements too, Lego City Stories finally looks like an evolution of the Lego series and a Smash Brothers sequel is always big news, even if there was nothing of it what so ever.

#39 Posted by ChickenPants (934 posts) -

Not many new games announced at e3 these days . Still extremely excited for games like Bioshock Infinate and The Journey.

#40 Posted by Izaak (248 posts) -

Darksiders 2 

#41 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7615 posts) -

Darksiders 2

That was announced almost last year.

I'm still hoping we get that rumoured Legacy of Kain reboot/sequel/collection..

This is the most popular fallacy amongst forum-level game criticism, that a game has to be "new" with a unique premise or genre or mechanic, otherwise it's shit etc. In all forms of cultural production, nothing is new and almost everything is recycled. To pretend otherwise is to delude oneself. Isn't it enough for a game to be fun, well-told, and mechanically well-executed? Innovation is an ideology, not an unquestionable value.

So your idea is to rip off another idea? Well done, you truly are a game developer.

Buy a puppy and pick up 'walking the dog' as a hobby, instead of gaming. Problem solved.
 
There's so many games worth spending my time and money on, it's overwhelming.

#45 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -
@AnimalFather
 
If I need to name a game. I'll chose Dragon's Dogma. Capcom's take on Demon's Souls. Like Demon's Souls meets Monster Hunter meets drop-in/drop-out co-op. Extremely sexy. Look at these videos...
 
    
        
    
 
Modern core gaming doesn't get more core than Dragon's Dogma. It's everything core gaming has to be. That's nerd-gasm material right here. If this doesn't move you, better pull the trigger on your gaming life.

QFT. Innovation is overrated. Books are still written on paper and they still rock. The language of writing games is much younger and has still a lot of growing to do - true. Doesn't mean a well-written 2D platformer ain't just as entertaining as it was back in its heyday. While we can expect gaming to innovate at a much higher rate than any other media, it's not a pre-requisite for an enjoyable gaming experience.
#48 Posted by ericdrum (404 posts) -

I was going to suggest playing golf or taking up scrapbooking, but you'd probably just complain about the lack of innovation there.

BIA: Furious Four even if it is an Inglorious Basterds knock off 

#50 Posted by arca (134 posts) -

Battlefield 3.

Massive fan of the Battlefield series and I played BF2 religiously. A sequel to that game is the only game I need.
