E3 - Electronic Arts Press conference discussion

#1 Edited by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

It start's and 15minutes or so and there's no topic so let's get this going

They have handed out 3D glasses already, most likely for Crysis 2 (wait, will that fuck up our feed of Crysis 2 then? lol >_>). What games are you excited to see? I'm hoping for Portal 2 and a Dragon Age 2 announcement myself.
 
mod edit: rules
 

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

 This thread is dedicated solely for general discussion of the EA press conference.  What this means is:
 
  • Only discussion of the Microsoft press conference is allowed.  Please keep the discussions of the Nintendo and Sony press conference in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time.  Want to talk about the World Cup or interleague play in MLB?  Do so in other threads.
 
Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not relate to the EA press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.    
 

Specific Announcements

 As with every E3 press conference, there will be specific announcements that you most certainly want to talk about.  While we love your enthusiasm, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the EA press conference.  Therefore, we ask you to discuss the specific announcements in the forums of their respective Wiki pages.  You can learn how best to do this in our E3 2010 and You! thread.  
 

Game Forums

Like with specific announcements, we would like you to not get into discussions of  individual games in this thread and instead post your topics/discussions in their respective forums(again, you can learn how to this in the aforementioned E3 and You! thread).  Also, please refrain from loading the EA forum with discussions of individual games.  Breaking either rule will result in the user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.  
 
Some EA conference related forums you might want to use:  
 

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during E3 tomfoolery, the general rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply.  You can refresh your memory about them in the Site Rules & FAQs thread.  There you can learn about all of the rules of not only the Forums, but also the Wiki, which I am sure many of you will be heavily involved with this week.  The sequence of punishments for infractions against these rules still apply as well.

Fingers crossed that Microsoft ran out of room to show off Mass Effect 3 and gave it to EA

Nice job dude. I was looking for this thread to be made. I'm praying for Mirror's Edge 2.

GT is going fine for me. The stream is up, but only a song and placeholder image is on at the moment.

#18 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

If GT isn't working for some one, try IGN or G4.
 
Also, WOMAAAAAAAN.....

GameTrailers still seems to be down.  Gamespot seems to be working, though.

I'm pretty sure it's sarcasm. :P
 
Seems interesting, but 1v1 looks kind of lame.  I could see it more fun with a bunch of cops and a bunch of criminals just going nuts.
