The Giant E3 Thread

Recommended Posts

It was played and voiced by actors, following a script. Which isn't bad, it was just done - I don't know - artificially, which implicitly tells me the AI was heavily scripted as well and won't be anywhere near as reactive as seen in the game. I'm guessing they wanted to something similar to what The Division did last year.

that Rainbow Six video is awful. it's the complete opposite of what multiplayer actually looks in these scenarios. I'm not impressed. it looks more like a scene from an action movie. 

 

no tactics, no CQC, just running around and shooting at any moving targets with a red bar above their heads... meh, how the mighty have fallen.

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

A trend that was kicked into mainstream when Apple and Google managed to steal their respective markets by talking about why they did what they did as to opposed to simply selling what. It's a mantra in modern media marketing that people don't buy what you sell they buy why you sell it.

 

 

 

I wouldn't necessarily say Google and Apple bat a thousand with their products, but there's no denying how powerful their marketing approach is.

So Bloodborne and Uncharted 4 with typical "no actual gameplay" trailers/teaser don't do much for me.

 

The thought of GF remastered though .... salivating buckets. I was just thinking to trying to make it run the other day, god forbid i could replay the whole game. Now i'll just wait some more. :grin:

Why is every E3 video now with the developers going "this is how we make the game and why it's special" rather than just letting the gameplay/trailer speak for itself?

They serve an important function. The hype trailers are there to get your attention, distinguishing them from dozen of similar titles offers pretty much the same. While the "why" is to engage\hock you, facilitated by desire to build communities that would drive the project forward. (Its what dev diaries has been about, what Kickstarters are and what we are doing here) I think its a nice trend for most games, it force them to work on more than pushing button that make awesome stuff happen ;)

Cuphead E3 2014 trailer.  Dunno if the game is any good, but I like the style harkening back to old cartoons.

 

Also like the look of White Night -

Meh. Same as the Rainbow Six stuff. So heavily scripted, I've never seen a single multiplayer game that was remotely like that. The reality is, everyone spawns, everyone runs around like crazy, someone starts shooting, everyone wants to have the first / best kills, etc. Multiplayer games just don't work like shown in the videos.

Thanks for posting this! It looks and sounds absolutely gorgeous! It reminds me of Hitchc o c k (of course), Scratches, and also of Don't Starve a bit. :)

When will it be released? And will it be available on Steam?

Pretty boring E3 so far.

Oh lawdeh, please let the following bit about Bloodborne be true

 

It's going to be kind of a side game to the Souls series and more low fantasy compared to high fantasy. They are replacing magic with gadgets, guns and such. Main mechanic seems to be related to blood and blood is also used to regain your HP and gain various other benefits. You get blood sucking it from corpses or items. Sucking too much blood will turn you into a beast which I suppose is this game's Soul/Hollow form. The game will apparently become a lot harder to play/control when in beast mode. To become a human again you need human blood and is where the online component comes into play.

Hype rising even further.

Right now I've only seen 2015 as a release date.  Initial trailers had 2014, but the new E3 is saying 2015.

 

It is supposed to be available via Steam

Well, given how disproportionately loudly the audiences cheer over shabby trailers and alpha gameplay, it seems to be something  contagious over at E3.

Had no idea there was a world-building element in Marvel Infinity. I wonder could I create my own battle between Elektra and Black Widow ...

 

 

 

Similar tools allow players to build castles, towns, and complicated platforming challenges just as easily. Avalanche says the toolset even lets users automatically build entire Toy Boxes from scratch – including terrain, enemy characters, and collectables.

 

The Toy Box is deeper this time around, with sophisticated new tools that give creators additional freedom. Highlights include the ability to connect Toy Boxes together through doors; customizable inventories and the building blocks required to create and manage in-game economies; and user-configurable NPCs. If you’re paying attention, those could be used in tandem to create simple RPGs.

In theory you could based on what they're saying about 2.0.  In practice we'll see.

 

Creating any kind of storyline was a challenge in 1.0 (although you could, for example, create an arena for example where two characters fought and the system would track who got to 10 wins first or something).

 

I'm really hoping that creating worlds is a faster experience; its a big challenge in 1.0 (not unfun, its way, but it is real easy to get partway through and realize the idea isn't working the way you'd thought it was).

 

Nintendo is getting into the Skylanders/Infinity market-
