Welcome to the E3 2012 EA Press Conference Discussion

Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the zombie apocalypse that is sweeping the east coast of the United States, you know that E3 2012 is here! Keeping with the tradition, each of the three platform companies along with EA and Ubisoft will be holding press conferences to discuss their company and what they will offer the video game industry presently and in the future. As you know, this will create apocalyptic chaos across the Internet and, more importantly, the Giant Bomb community and forums. In order to help control the madness, we will have an official "sticky" thread for each of the conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the EA press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is dedicated solely for the general discussion of the EA press conference. What does this mean for you? Well, let me tell you with my patent-pending bullet points!

  • Only discussion of the EA press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts and discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Microsoft press conference will result in the guilty parties (i.e. users like you!) being sent a PM by one of the moderators (pray that yours won't be sent by MB)

Specific Announcements

As with every E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements of games/hardware/devices that you would like to discuss with your fellow comrades in the Giant Bomb community. We all certainly love your ethusiasm (it's what makes Giant Bomb special!), but this thread is only for the general, overal discussion of the EA press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the specific forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this by ready my fellow mod Marino's E3 2012 and You! thread.

Game Forums

As with specific announcements made at these press conferences, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. We direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums (again, you can read more about this in the aforementioned E3 2012 and You! thread). Again, please do not overload this thread with discussion of individual games. Breaking this rule will, again, result in the guilty parties being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some EA press conference related forums you might want to use:

General Rules & Guidelines

The sequence of punishments for breaking this rules still apply as well.

I am opening this one earlier than usual due to that I might not be here later for the conference. Enjoy!

#3 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Dead Space 3 will probably be awesome. Hoping to see some more SimCity too!

#4 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1140 posts) -

I am hoping for an extended look at SimCity. I am sure we will also see an expanded look of the Kinect features added to EA Sports title.

I do not care what anyone ways, that ref thing in FIFA is the thing of the show.

#5 Edited by Totori (559 posts) -

When does it start? half hour from now?

#6 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1140 posts) -

4pm EST on Spike.

#7 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11309 posts) -

I wonder if they're going to say anything about the new ending DLC for Mass Effect 3. Have they said anything about that since the first announcement?

I bet there will be some kind of bad off hand joke.
#9 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11309 posts) -

@Totori: The whole thing is just going to be them joking about changing things they just did.

Dragon Age 3 maybe?

At least a teaser on that

#14 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

I would love dragon age 3 and dead space 3

#15 Posted by MildMolasses (3225 posts) -

The new C&C game perhaps? I wonder if this will be the doctor's show again, like it was a few years ago. I'm just curious what they'll do now that SWOTOR is out and they can't just show off some CG movies during the press conference

Honestly I think we won't hear about Dragon Age 3 for a least a year. But I may be wrong.

The only reason I think we might is because of the lack of Mass Effect / SWTOR on the way, though I guess there could be ME DLC or something.
#18 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

Also want to see the nba game because 2k is king so they best not miss

It's the most likely I mean what Mass Effect 3 DLC are they gonna show? The Extended Cut , showing end game scenes that are supposedly there to make amends for people who hated/ want some clarity to the ending? I don't think the would want to show that to everybody , multiplayer stuff? nah no Mass Effect 3 for them.

#21 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

Hope we see some SimCity and more of BF3 Armored Kill.

#22 Posted by Humanity (9604 posts) -

If they show gameplay of Dead Space 3 I will happily sit through all their sports related crap without one negative comment.

I'll make enough negative comments about sports stuff for the both of us. :)
#28 Posted by FilipHolm (669 posts) -

Here's hoping the Dead Space 3 trailer features Dubstep and explosions

#29 Posted by DoctorDanger99 (686 posts) -

@Marokai:

unless you think me half passed out on the floor screaming "WARFIGHTER?!" is interesting you a villian!

#30 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

Strap it on!!

#31 Posted by Chop (1999 posts) -

Sim City is about the only thing EA has got that I'm interested in. Here's hoping we get to see a fair bit of it *fingers crossed*

#32 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Alright lets see how this goes.

#33 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Bejeweled? Fuck yeah

#34 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Dead Space 3 time..

#35 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Starting off with some Dead Space. Sick!

#36 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

Dead Space 3 *thumbs up*

#37 Posted by JeanLuc (3591 posts) -

Yay Ellie is in it! Also please don't have her die at the beginning.

#38 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Co-op isn't scary. -_-

#39 Edited by Zacagawea (1600 posts) -

Holy shit, really, co-op in DS3? Fuck....

#40 Posted by DoctorDanger99 (686 posts) -

dead space? ugh,yet another game series i need to play (again)

#41 Posted by JeanLuc (3591 posts) -

@NekuSakuraba said:

To be fair Dead Space wasn't very scary in the first place.

#42 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Kinda disappointed by how different it looks. Not scary at all...

#43 Posted by Bismarck (432 posts) -

Am i the onlyone getting a lost planet vibe from the trailer?

#44 Posted by Chop (1999 posts) -

From Resident Evil to Gears of War. Dead Space has grown, I guess...

#45 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

So - Lost Space or Dead Planet? What should it be called?

#46 Posted by CitizenKane (10507 posts) -

So did he just go through its sphincter?

#47 Posted by Marokai (3066 posts) -

I never thought Dead Space was particularly scary in the first place, but at least there was a restrictive nature to the environment and a weight to the movement that made it feel different from every other game ever. This just looks like Gears.

#48 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Dead Space seems to be going the Resident Evil route and trading horror/suspense for all out action. That and co-op really diminishes the fright compared to when you're by yourself.

#49 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

I don't like the universal ammo :/

#50 Edited by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

I'm torn.  I think it will be a lot of fun to play co-op, but I think it will ultimately dilute the game.  Especially when played alone.
 
Also, boo EA sports.
