There were only a few things I was looking for out of the gaggle of E3 propaga- er news:
- Mirror\’s Edge news (this game still looks bloody awesome)
- Sonic Unleashed news (hopefully my dreams don\’t come crashing down around me)
- Any news out of Valve (this had better come to Steam, damn it… and Episode Three details kthxbai)
Blizzard is a no-show because they just held their Worldwide Invitational where this little game called Diablo III was revealed, and where Starcraft II was shown off in a competitive match for the first time.
Anyway, on to the few other tidbits that caught my eye.
Apparently Nintendo has announced some thingamajig that will improve the motion sensing of the Wii remote. How it does this, I have no idea. I\’m more concerned about the fact that plugging that thing into the remote seems to preclude the attachment of a nunchuk for smoother aiming in Resident Evil 4.
Microsoft\’s presser was largely uninteresting to me since I don\’t own an Xbox 360 and they hardly mentioned PC releases. The reaction on the Internet to the news that Final Fantasy XIII would be coming to Xbox 360 has been hilarious, though. It\’s a repeat of the NERD RAGE that erupted when Devil May Cry 4 became a multi-platform title instead of a PlayStation 3 exclusive – somehow they feel betrayed because Square Enix decided to widen the game\’s potential market. Whatever. I\’ve given up on trying to analyse the psychology of lunatic fanboys.
Oh yeah, that two-player co-op in Resident Evil 5 is pretty cool. I doubt I\’ll buy it unless that rumoured PC version materialises though. For the life of me, I just can\’t aim with a thumbstick at all. Don\’t ask why.
