    Boy did the big boys drop the ball on conferences today. Gamespot started late and had a fuzzy quality. IGN kept stalling, had a cleaner picture but ended up minutes behind the live feed from the lock ups. I really hope I find a better source tomorrow. As far as xbox its like one long game for me as usual, gray muted world, gun toting male for nearly the whole game segment. No rpgs, no platformers, no real primary colors from what I could tell. Shadow Complex looked the best to me and Alan Wake though dumbed down more then expected after all these years looks interesting too.

    Yeah, IGN's video was totally screwed - they didn't even have the full M$ conference up. (Last thing shown was the Twitter stuff, then it cuts off)

    Honestly, the only exclusives they showed that looked promising to me were Shadow Complex & Splinter Cell. Everything else that looked good was multi-platform. (But then again, I don't usually play FPS or sports games, AKA 80+% of the 360 library)

    I guess MGS on 360 was the only really big announcement. (Which has been heavily rumored for the past 3 years anyway) All these goofy controllers/cameras/peripherals that are being introduced (across all companies) have become WAY too much. How many things do they expect people to go out and buy when they have no room for them all?

    The trailer for The Old Republic was easily the best thing that came out of today's footage. (And I'm not a PC gamer at all, but I may ante up for that one!) Assassin's Creed 2 looked BEAUTIFUL. (Let's hope the game play is less repetitive than the first) And am I the only one who absolutely cannot wait for Brutal Legend?

    And still no info yet on BG&E2 from Ubi today....

    I thought it was great that MS had Tony Hawk shill his board only to show their camera doing the same things without needing the board, bet Activision was real happy about that

    The highlights for me were Red Steel 2 (IGN has the developer walkthrough which is much better than what was shown at the horrendous Ubisoft conference) and the Star Wars trailer

    And no Hulu for Xbox, I dont care about Facebook or Twitter

    I have a feeling Nintendo and Sony will have much better conferences tomorrow with Pikmin 3, whatever new games they have (rumors broke on a new Mario game late yesterday), and Uncharted 2, God of War III on the Sony side.

    I think the Xbox camera is neat but they just sent out dev kits today and seeing as how no developers seemed to want to deal with the wiimote makes me think that unless MS gives them big fat checks they wont want to mess with the camera

    Sony will *almost* definitely have the best conference, based on what M$ showed, and what Nintendo probably won't show. Honestly, after the cluster-f that was the big N's conference last year, they NEED to announce/show off more classic 1st party games. Pikmin 3 will be a lock, and everybody's STILL hoping for something regarding Kid Icarus. And seeing as how it will literally be 3 years this November without a new Zelda game, (not to mention Twilight Princess was originally a Gamecube title, meaning Nintendo has had over 4 years to develop the next game) if they don't at least show a new teaser trailer, the internet will explode. (Spirit Tracks not included)

    I'm sure we'll get 20 minutes of sales charts and more back-patting from The Reginator and crew before anything interesting gets dropped. (And then it'll be another 20 minutes of how awesome Wii Music and Wii Motion+ are)

    Seriously, all Sony needs to do is show extended trailers for GoW3 & Uncharted 2, give details on the PSP Go!, and go home - we'll all be happy. Though I'm sure we'll get some info on Ratchet & Clank, MGS, and several others. I bet they will also have a big PSN or firmware announcement too.

    Late last night Nintendo removed Red Steel 2 from their conference to make room for their own sword game according to IGN. And there is one large booth in the Wii area with no posters or anything till after the conference. Also Sin & Punishment 2 has a massive booth.

    We also know now Super Mario Bros Wii is coming based on pics from last night. If we can avoid 35min of sales info it automatically beats last years

    Its like they took the October conference and just split out the trailers

    They cannot possibly repeat the epic fail that was the Wii Music reveal, and I do not think anybody can repeat the ugly failure that was the Ubisoft conference last night (missing footage, games almost freezing, James Cameron talking for 30min).

    I will recap it below but so far it just looks like the same old same old with few exceptions (seriously WSR comes out like in 1 month and we just got a look at the other games ?!?)

    • Super Mario Bros Wii, 4 player game. Koopa Kids are enemies!
    • More Wii Fit (Wii Fit Plus) and Wii Sports Resort stuff shown
    • Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Crystal Bearers Wii shown
    • Kingdom Hearts DS shown
    • Mario and Luigi 3 DS shown
    • Golden Sun DS revealed for 2010
    • Women's Murder Club: Games of Passion for DS
    • COP The Recruit for DS
    • Style Savvy for DS (Girls Mode from Japan, massive seller)
    • DSi sales past 1 million in 2 months, Flipnote Studio software coming
    • Mario vs Donkey Kong Minis March DSi game available on Monday via DSiWare
    • Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks DS on show floor
    • Wii Vitality Sensor revealed
    • MARIO GALAXY 2 with Yoshi!
    • The Conduit shown by Sega
    • Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles shown by Capcom
    • Dead Space Extraction shown by EA
    • NEW METROID Other M for Wii by Team Ninja! Not a FPS adventure like before


    The Metroid game looks pretty cool, surprised Team Ninja is handling it, am excited as hell to play with Yoshi in SMG2.

    Iwata and Miyamoto will be giving a round table at 6pm tonight and next week there is a Japanese conference scheduled so more game announcements will be coming in June.

    Are YOU SURE? I am BORED to my MIND! All I hear is blah, blah blah....

    MORE ACCESSORIES! YAY! :: insert sarcastic emoticon here ::

    Yeah, honestly, outside of the new Mario & Metroid games, there wasn't much else to get excited about. Wii Sports Resort will be shallow fun, and the new RE game looks OK.

    All said, Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be epic. I'm unsure about the new Metroid though - looks to be fully third person 3D, and being developed by Team Ninja, it'll be hard as hell. (Who knows for sure though - hopefully Itagaki is still no longer around with them)

    Bring on Sony in 40 minutes!

    Ooooh crap - forgot about Conduit - that looks sweet too!

    All in all, definitely better than last year's show, but outside of the megaton announcements, the same old stuff. And where the hell was Pikmin 3?

    Do I detect some ill feelings? Every year you expect Nintendo do something and every year they disappoint so why keep coming back like a beaten wife?

    Whooo hoo, come on Uncharted and God of War III stuff

    I think its also funny we did not get much on Sin and Punishment 2 when there is a gigantic booth in Nintendo's area with 4 large monitors demoing the game

    And where the hell was Pikmin 3?
    Probably coming next week at the Japan conference, they did get the New Play Pikmin 1 and 2 first so I would imagine Pikmin 3 will be there as well to help the slump.

    SMG2 just looks like an expansion disc for the original game. Sorry, I'm not paying $50 for additional levels.

    I was a little interested in the Metroid announcement in that it looks like a story-driven game. I wasn't as impressed as everyone else with Team Ninja developing it. Didn't really dig Ninja Gaiden Sigma and other than breast physics, they haven't impressed me. My only hope is that Nintendo handles the game controls (camera angles in Ninja Gaiden were atrocious) and leaves the story stuff to Tecmo.

    OK Sony, a wiimote is new tech?!? At least MS Project Natal was innovative, there was not one thing with the Sony wand that does anything more than the Wiimote with M+ does now. It requires the PS3 Camera which blows with bad lighting so I worry greatly about its accuracy. MS blows Sony out of the water on potential new tech imho.

    I guess people can stop whining because this means we will probably get some highly developed HD motion control games

    So, this Super Mario Bros. Wii game (not mario galaxy 2), what exactly is the style of game? It is like a traditional side scrolling Mario game like the old SMB games, or is it something else entirely? And if it can be 4 players, will there be a cast similar to Super Mario Bros. 2 or something?

    Any info that anyone may have on this will be greatly appreciated.

    Think mini-game, but the size of a Super Mario Bros. game. I'd rather have a full-fledged Super Mario Bros. sequel to the DS game.

    Really? I think it's more multiplayer focused which removes the similarity of it from the DS game. The graphics are more NSMB-like, but I think the gameplay is going to be different.

    Intial reaction to a 2D console mario after all these years? Complete spaztastic joy! After watching how Nintendo briefly handled it and other online concerns about the same thing I'm abit worried. It seems to be more of a simple little party co op game then going after SMW or SMW2 crown. Plus you already have folks ready to compare its against SMG2, damning 2D once and for all. Nintendo may not have it in them to do high grade 2D scrollers anymore just comparing to the visuals of SMW2:YI shows this but here is to hoping.

    The PS3 version of the Wiimote is pretty impressive. Especially seeing the guy actually in the game and objects appearing his hand.

    No from what I see is still NSMB but you have the option of going after your partners, just like in Zelda Four Swords. The game can be played by 1 person so how is not like NSMB?

    Nothing the Eye Toy did not do on the PS2, I am not impressed in the least with their motion controller. I see more potential in the Wiimote with Motion Plus and Project Natal.

    Sony needs a PS3 price drop and to get rid of the PS2, not copy the Wii and promote the PSP

    Actually, I think Sony should copy the Wii even more and start including backwards compatibility with their last system in all new PS3's going forward.

    And tout it as a brand new feature

    Looking forward to Uncharted 2, God of War III, and RE PSP but that was about it from Sony's end.

    Wonder when that leaked PS3 Slim will hit?

    More info on Super Mario Bros Wii will come tonight via IGN, here is a new capture of Mario fighting a Koopa Kid

    I also think integrating Wii features into the PS3 is a great idea. Having the best of both worlds...HD graphics, core and casual gaming, great online network, and motion sensing hardware is a plethora of options that Sony needs to compete against Microsoft. I believe Nintendo is in a totally different market right now as they focus soley on casual gaming.

    I think Sony now has enough arsenals to get the PS3 back on track. The only thing missing is the price drop.

    On that note...I think it's time to change my avatar.
