View Full Version : My conference impressions..
I started watching right as they were going into Nintendogs:
New Game Boy: Game Boy Micro. It's very tiny.
Nintendogs is exactly like the Dreamcast game Seaman from five years ago. Way to rip people off, Nintendo.
You'll be able to download NES, SNES, and N64 games to Revolution. Big deal. They're called emulators. There's a great NES one for the Dreamcast.
Mario Party 7?? Good god.
Where's Super Mario 128??
SHOW OFF GEIST!!! THAT GAME LOOKS AWESOME!!!\
FIRE EMBLEM!! SHOW ME MORE F-I-R-E E-M-B-L-E-M!!!
It looks like Link transforms into a wolf at one point. WTF?
Wow, the press gets the new Zelda trailer on Nintendo DS carts. THAT'S SO TEH AWEOSME!
Overall, an incredibly lame press conference. Not enough new games, not enough info on games we already know about, nothing really new about Revolution.
I'd say Sony has already won e3.
I feel darn near the exact same way, though I have no love for geist, I forget where, but I heard the devs have no idea what they're doing... not my cup of tea anyway, but thought I'd pass the rumor mill along.
It seems that Nintendo had no plans of showing off revolution anyway... wish I had heard about this in advance... a pre-E3 memo or something of the sort detailed what they'd go over in the conference, and that's exactly what they did.
Anyway, Zelda wins. Hands down. Looks great, wasn't expecting it too be nearly that dark. I'm very happy... not 'cause it's dark, though that's nice, but 'cause it's "teh win". ^^ Looks like it'll be a ton of fun and there's a whole new set of interesting elements involved in the game... a VERY fresh Zelda.
could you post the link? still havent watched the video :(
wow I feel like I watched a different interview... I felt the opposite... (I skiped the nintendogs portion).
I think they did well about talking about the possibilities of the DS... they were light on games but that's what the show floor at e3 is for right?
mario 128 was absent... my guess is its a rev. launch title they will debute at the rev launch party thing.
I think as far as "next gen" sony stole the show but only cuz 360 was debuted b4 and the rev was just shown not really "shown" as in games/graphics.
Zelda game looks amazing. Im actually rather excited for some DS games... the online play of mario kar/animal crossing is more interesting to me than the 2 online games out for the psp now. I am hoping to get excited for the psp on the show floor.
overall the pres shoulda been more about games. but im excited for the rev.
1) I think Reggie Fils is stupid! Although I like how Iwata-san's used witty humor against Reggie :P
2) Miyamoto is such a pervert! I thought he was only a game geek. Now I think he is a lucky Bas**** capable of pulling off such a joke.
3) Revolution is slick!
4) What the heck was that DJ demo??? Oh and again, Reggie Fils is whack! Needs to retire, now!
5) Nintendo Rules, Iwata rules and thanks for the free trailer but whocares about that , we all got free memory cards, YAAAAY!
Factor 5's Julian Eggebrecht talks PS3
By: Justin Pinter
Recently GameInformer sat down with Factor 5's co-founder and president Julian Eggebrecht to see how development was going on Lair for the PS3.
The discussion covered everything from why Factor 5 chose Sony and the PlayStation 3 to future titles. We here at PSU thought we would just highlight some greater points from the interview.
GI: So why Sony and not Microsoft?
Eggebrecht: On the technology front, there is simply more vision at Sony...[In terms of Microsoft] what was a killer for me was no HDMI. We had huge fights with Microsoft basically going back and forth about, ‚ÄúPlease, please, please, please put an HDMI port in there, because only then can you really see the graphics,‚Ä
