What to Expect from E3 Today: Nintendo, SCEA, Bethesda, LucasArts, Capcom, Activision

Gaming Today is in the trenched at E3 this week, and yesterday may have been pretty exciting, what with FFXIII being released for the Xbox 360, Resident Evil 5 getting a release date, all the Halo Wars and Gears of War Footage (will be posted soon) and other nice nuggets – it is only going to get better today.
The Nintendo press conference will start off the morning, and the day will close with the Activision private party (away from E3) taking place around 7:00 pm PST. So for those of us on EST, we can expect some info to start arriving 10pm this evening as far as that event goes. Again, Jonathan and Shawn will be blogging live, so expect more information throughout the day and into the evening.

Meanwhile, what are you excited to hear about? Personally, I am curious to see what else Bethesda has to offer other than more Fallout 3 info, and Activision will more than likely be talking up the Guitar Hero franchise and possibly be giving us the first real look at World Tour. They released a press statement yesterday during the Microsoft event about the new Metallica coming to Legends of Rock, so hopefully the guys will have more information on that later. What I am anxious to hear about is the new Wolfenstein title because there is nothing more fun than shooting Nazis ate up with the occult bug.

As far as the Sony press conference goes, I am keeping my fingers crossed that God of War 3 is mentioned or at least shown in rough form. Of course, I am a total Kratos groupie, and anything regarding a future title starring the angry Spartan piques my interest very much. I am sure we will also hear more about “Home” and LittleBigPlanet and many other titles along with future firmware updates coming, so keep your eyes peeled.

I would love to hear an ES title as well, but honestly after Oblivion, I’m a little let down. At first it seemed great but when you look at the game from the inside they really did a very shoddy job creating it. Not to say that I could do better, but the game was and still is full of bugs. No thanks to Bethesda who seems content with shunning there lauded modding community. But that’s just my opinion and I have more of those that I know what to do with. :neutral:

I have never played Oblivion on PC, nor Morrowind. I played the 360 versions because I have a sh*t computer at the time both were released. Both games had bugs, esp Morrowind for the original Xbox. Pissed me off to no end countless times, but I still love the games. If I ever get married, I am walking down the aisle to the Morrowind theme, and leaving the alter with the main theme from Windwaker. Yes, I am THAT big of a dork.

well yeah the Morrowind theme owns every other theme…..ever…. oblivion was….mehhh, but morrowind really helped to push the open ended RPG genre forward as a whole.

Nintendo’s Press Conference was a little disappointing… :sad:

Highlights being Animal Crossing Wii, WiiSpeak (Voice Chat), and Grand Theft Auto DS.

Yeah But Wii Music looked pretty cool. Can’t wait to hear what the guys have to say about it.

I have changed my mind about Wii Music since looking at the screens watching the trailer, and seeing… well, I will let the guys tell you all about that later. :roll:
