Nintendo: Zelda, Zelda, Zelda, Zelda! I don’t care about no 3DS and Mario is out and Metroid is already a known quantity. I am excited about the new Legend of Zelda because there have had four years to work on it and it has been built for the Wii from the ground up. (Oh yeah, and it will not be M)
Microsoft: Fable, Halo, Gears…boring. (Actually very exciting, but old news) What I want is Todd Howard to come out and announce Elder Scrolls V. It makes sense, it has been two years since his last game and Obsidian is making the next Fallout game. The only lame part is that there will probably be some “exclusive” DLC.
Sony: The new games for the big franchises are already out there, same as Microsoft. Will anyone be surprised when they show the title card for Uncharted 3: Flynn's Revenge? I want two surprise announcements out of this press conference: Atlus announces Persona 5 on the PS3 and PSP emulation comes to PS3 (I’d pay money for a lot of those games, just not for the system)
This might not count since I already bought it. The game has great music, a great presentation, and it is a lot of fun to play. Other than a few song choices (there is room for “I, Me, Mine,” and “I Want You,” but not “Penny Lane,” or “Help!”?) It is exactly the product a fan (of Rock Band as well as The Beatles) would ask for.
A few months ago I could not care less about this game…then I saw a few trailers…then I played the first Uncharted…then I played some of the multiplayer…and then I heard some ridiculous reviews…and now I am going to buy it day one. I might even try for my first Platinum.
Mass Effect with spies, which should be enough. Much of this game’s quality will come down to the writing and I don’t know if the developer has the pedigree to get me excited about their script. Another concern: Is it just me or does this game look off? I feel it resembles a current generation launch title, things are certainly current gen but it does not seem to have the same polish and detail that I have grown accustom to.
