Gamer Rant — E3 Edition — Wii U

Nin­ten­do revealed its new con­sole at thi­er press event and are call­ing it the Wii U. Here comes the pain. So there was no men­tion of an actu­al con­sole they only focused on the con­troller. Wait I thought we were get­ting a new con­sole? First off the con­troller looks like its the size of the U Draw or a fat touch tablet. That’s way to big in my opin­ion. Yea its got a fan­cy touch screen, but why do I need a screen? Will it have heat­ing issues? Will it eat through bat­ter­ies? It’s gonna be in HD, but thats the most that was said about the con­sole. The prob­lem is like the Wii the Wii U offers noth­ing more than a new gim­mick. You can switch from your TV to your 6.2 inch screen and then it becomes a handheld.….but I alreadyRead more…

E3 2011 — Sony

Well Day one of E3 is in the books and it end­ed with Sony. Now Sony had a ton of pres­sure to be great this year due to the PSN hack. Well lets just say I think they hit a home­run. They had to step it up and they did just that. After the apolo­gies and thanks for sup­port here’s what they gave us: Unchart­ed 3 — Beta June 28 — Full game Nov 1 — We got a look at Unchart­ed 3 which looked amaz­ing. The game­play had Drake sneak­ing around a cruise ship dur­ing a ter­ri­ble storm. As you nav­i­gate the ship you and object around you con­tin­u­ous­ly sway with the chop­py seas out side. Even­tu­al­ly the ship gets a hole and starts flood­ing and then all of the sud­den the ship rolls onto its side adding a whole newRead more…

E3 2011 — Ubisoft

Next on the list was Ubisoft­’s event. Before I start can I just say 1. just give us the info, you’re not fun­ny and 2. hire peo­ple who speak eng­lish or make them learn it bet­ter. I can’t under­stand half of what you just said about Track Mania…not that I cared but I digress…Here is what Ubisoft had to offer: Ray­man Ori­gins — This live demo showed some co-op and brought me back to the SNES and Sega days. It had a old school feel­ing with it’s well ani­mat­ed 2D side scrolling action. The game will sup­port a 4 play­er co-op. Dri­ver San Fan­cis­co — Noth­ing spe­cial unfor­tu­natley. Dri­ver will have a mul­ti­play­er fea­ture though. Far­cry 3 — This actu­al­ly looked decent. Got a lit­tle sneak peak of game­play and seemed to have a mix­ture of stealth and regualr capRead more…

E3 2011 — EA’s Game Changers

EA just fin­ished their press event and heres what they showed us: Mass Effect 3 — March 6, 2012 — The live demo showed some great graph­ics and real­ly showed off a much larg­er scale for the action and fight­ing. It was also said that if you played the pre­vi­ous Mass Effect games that your deci­sions in them would all come togeth­er in this install­ment. Need for Speed: The Run — This new NFS title will be a race across the USA. They have added the auto log fea­ture to this one and it will also fea­ture action out of the car as well. The live demo showed this fea­ture to be a sim­ple but­ton tim­ing excer­cise but it will be an inter­est­ing fea­ture. With stolen police cars, fight­ing, and heli­copter chas­es this NFS seems like it will up theRead more…

We have all noticed the Wii slip­ping in sales over the years and the whole motion con­trol gim­ick has been sur­passed by Xbox’s Kinect as well as Playsta­tions Move. To com­bat this Nin­ten­do announce a price drop. This will be the con­soles sec­ond price drop since its release in 2006. The first drop was from 249.99 to 199.99. Now the Wii will retail for 149.99. To add incen­tive to the offer the Wii will come with Mario Kart and the rac­ing wheel acces­so­ry.

I’ve got a Golden Ticket, oh wait it’s a fake…

So with a new year brings a new E3 (Elec­tron­ic Enter­tain­ment Expo). As all gamers are aware its the place to see all the newest and upcom­ing games and projects from all the com­pa­nies in the busi­ness. Would­n’t it be awe­some to actu­al­ly be there though? That answer is yes. How­ev­er E3 is not open to the pub­lic. Only peo­ple who work in the indus­try or press can get access. So the peo­ple decid­ed to fight back in a way. Some of the sam­ller web­sites who were for­tu­nate enough to get one of these gold­en tick­ets decid­ed to sell them off. Some of these pass­es sold for as much as $700 and that’s hop­ing you did­n’t get a fake copy. E3 heard about the black mar­ket E3 pass trade and decid­ed to do some­thing about it. To do this instead ofRead more…
