From the super corny (somewhat funny) demo commercial to the revelation of an Xbox controller clone, it looks like Nintendo has started us off on the right foot for this year’s E3, even if none of it was unexpected.
“Pre-E3 events” essentially just make the whole thing a few days longer, which I fine with. E3 has become known for jamming so many new announcements and trailers into its 3 weekday span that it takes several weeks to wade through all of it.
My predictions? The Wii U will remain the only console to be released soon, there won’t be any surprise announcements from Sony or Microsoft, Half-Life 3 will not be announced, but beyond all of this stuff that won’t happen, everything else is up for grabs.
Unannounced Title from developer/publisher X seems to be a pretty big part of the schedule, so we might see some unexpected shenanigans. More than likely there’s going to be some really big teases.
What do I want? More than anything some confirmation on the release dates for Guild Wars 2, Torchlight 2, Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, I really want some new franchises that will wow me in ways I don’t expect and I wouldn’t mind if somebody revealed a new RTS game that doesn’t involve leveling up.
Looking forward to everything and talking about it this week, see you on the other side!
