Update 5: And finally, Destiny gameplay! Also, the PS4 seems to have won E3. Now let's all start praying for a PC version of the Bungie FPS pseudo-MMO.
The short trailer
And the actual gameplay session:
Update 4: So, other stuff happened, I suppose Watch Dogs and The Division might be interesting, but I can't get over that Dragon Age nonsense. Take another look at that image below - remind you of anything? So, a vaguely nordic-looking helm with a dragon head/skull in the middle of it, an open world game + the Warcraft 3 intro cutscene. And I just now realized - you play an Inquisitor, a morally ambiguous dark character that hunts monsters. I wonder which 3 game audiences they are aiming at, HMMMMMMM. Popular well-selling RPG mash-up, ho!
I understand this is EA and all, but I feel confident in calling it now: Bioware time of death 10.06.2013.
Update 3: The DA3 Trailer. Also there's some new sports games, I guess. Maybe.
Suggestion for the tagline: "Just when you thought things couldn't get more generic...it's DA3!"
Update 2: Titanfall confirmed for PC! Also the Dragon Age 3 Cinematic was revealed and it's basically the Warcraft 3 opening cinematic. Spoiler alert: it will suck.
Update: The Titanfall, Dead Rising and Below Trailers!
And for the rest check out this page.
Update: And the Microsoft press conference is over, with a ton of Xbox One exclusives announced. The only ones that actually looked interesting were Dead Rising 3, which had some serious open world, crazy gfx hundreds of zombies on-screen at once action. But I was fairly ok with not ever buying the thing, despite a fair amount of exclusives...that is until the last game announcement. We've heard a lot about Respawn studios' new game for EA, with the similar name to our favorite never to be released MMO, namely Titanfall. And, well, it's good. VERY good. I mean it's still a CoD-like shooter, but the setting and added mechs to the gameplay, not to mention the mobility while outside the mechs. I'll post the trailers up as soon as I can find some!
So, Starym's Corner then. This is where I'll just be talking about usually random non-WoW or Blizz related things that seem interesting to me and trying to get you guys interested in them as well. I thought I'd start today since it's the big day of E3 with all the press conferences and all the publishers showing off their goods to us, a lot of them for the first time! Depending on how into gaming in general you are, E3 can really be a fun thing to watch, whether it's for the trainwreck presentations on stage (hi Nintendo!) or actually interesting new games that show up for the first time.
This year is particularly exciting because we get to see a lot of brand new next-generation console games (mostly from Microsoft, as Sony have already shown a lot of theirs on their PS4 announcement event). Now hold on a second, it doesn't matter that you don't have a console or hate them and are a proud member of the PC Gamer Master Race - these are interesting/important because they show us what games in general are heading towards (for good or bad). Now that they're finally going be be unshackled from the chains of 8 year old hardware, even the PC versions of the games will look much, MUCH better as they won't just be the console versions+, not to mention we should get other improvements like better AI and perhaps even new game mechanics.
So, the whole thing will be streamed live and you can check out the schedule here. It starts around 19:00 CET.
Later on we get to see a full gameplay trailer for Bungie's new MMO Destiny, which we've already talked a bit about, so that's my highlight for now, aside from the new games that will be revealed. The whole thing is pretty fun to watch so I definitely recommend checking it out. Also, feel free to talk about the new reveals below!
