PCGamer hands on with Rainbow Six siege, for what that is worth, anyway.

The Division looks pretty good.  Were those the developers playing, or was it some sort of beta access?

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.

 

Are they multiplayer/co-op only?

Any interesting looking story driven titles announced that aren't part of an existing franchise?

I still can't get over how amazing that little snippet of Zelda looked.  The WiiU is obviously lacking in horsepower when compared to XBone and PS4, but Nintendo does a fantastic job of using art style to mask/overcome that.  I'm still a bit miffed that there was no Metroid announcement, though E3 isn't over yet, so you never know, but seeing a blurry screen behind Miyamoto with what was obviously a Starfox game running on it filled my heart with joy.

 

Also, Little Big Planet 3 looks pretty dang sweet.

Ask a search engine this question and it'll break the algorithms. Does not compute. No such criteria. No results found.

"That's seemingly all been swept away in favour of a new multiplayer-focused tactical close combat game fought between terrorists and counter-terrorist units."

From PC Gamer

 

So Rainbow Six went and became Counter Strike. Yay.


Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

You say that like it wasn't before.

R6 was released a year before CS, but it was'nt a fastpaced multiplayer gunning game. It was slow and methodical and had a well developed single player campaign.

The similarities lie in counter terrorism and that they involve guns, and that's it.

Yeah, it makes my heart feel very heay when I see a game that has all the features I'd love to see in a new tactical / police singleplayer game... but is actually multiplayer. I just don't want to play this. Most of the time, such games are fun for me only temporary. That means, a day or two... and that's not really worth it.

So essentially the new Mass Effect is just concept art at this stage?

 

In the new Mass Effect - You play as Casey Hudson with your trustworthy wise-cracking side-kick Mac Walters.

 

 

:D

 

Hope there's a toggle to keep helmets on during dialogue!

 

Wonder where we are going to see Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale next. Both have incredible range, and Meer especially is often unrecognizable as himself.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Well they have similar guns, but that's about all. The MP was far slower than CS, after all.

...of which unfortunately her only usefulness was in two of the most infuriating missions in the whole game :p

 

Do kind of miss the intrigue of the older Rainbow Six games. Before you were re-taking oil rigs from eco-terrorists, securing nuclear materials stolen by the Mafiya, and foiling a bank-heist by far-right paramilitaries. 

 

By the way, I would recommend Raven Shield 2.0 for those feeling nostalgic for the franchise. Among the best additions of this mod was improved teammate AI and trigger discipline, which means your AI teammates aren't as likely to put the kaibosh on your most well-plotted plans.

If it doesn't feature a ballistic shield, I am not interested. :/

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.
