"E3! Fuck yeah!"
In case you didn't know. The world's largest gaming convention, E3, is right around the corner. Game announcements, demos, trailers, new hardware, and the like are afoot.
Let's talk about some of the things that I'm excited about this year's E3. E3 2010 was won by Nintendo and their reveal of the 3DS, it was a great show and even though 3DS sales are waning at the moment, it is no doubt an impressive piece of gaming hardware. Nintendo usually brings out the craziest ideas when it comes to gaming innovation and with their new console, codenamed Project Cafe, and it's bizarre controller. Who know's, maybe they'll take the spot light again this year.
I'm curious to see what Ninento has planned with their new console and it's controller. Claiming to have a HD touchscreen on each, I keep being reminded of the Gamecube and GBA connection. You could also say the SEGA Dreamcast but c'mon, that VMU thing was horrible. Definitely looking forward to Nintendo's press con.
As for Wii games, I'm hoping for US trailers and release dates for The Last Story, the Wii RPG being handled by the father of Final Fantasy himself Hironobu Sakaguchi, and Xenoblade, that other Wii RPG that might have connections with Xenogears and the Xenosaga series. Hopefully we get an update about the fate of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I haven't heard anything about it since last year's E3 and remember what happened to Twilight Princess? It's around the same time again so history might repeat itself.
Another press conference that I am excited to see is Sony's. After the great PSN hack that happened recently, I'm very curious as to how Sony will address that. They can't NOT talk about it right?The NGP or the 'PS Vita' will obivously be making an apperance as this is Sony's next take on the handheld portabl gaming market.
Obviously I'm excited to see new trailers of games and new announcements are always good as well as release dates. But what about you? What specific games are you excited for at this year's E3? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
We'll be watching the live streams of the press conferences all week and we will cover as much as we can to keep you guys updated but for now have a fun weekend guys!
