If any of you guys have been living under a rock, E3 is this week! The year's biggest show with all the latest video games... basically the place every gamer wants to be. This year should be huge, considering Nintendo's Revolution, Microsoft's Xbox 360, and Sony's PS3 will be on display for the first time to the public... as well as music game stuff like PIU, ITG, DDR... and maybe even Pop'n... o_O

What are you all excited about the most? There's rumors all over the place of game lists, and I'll bring them to you.


NINTENDO REVOLUTION (?!)

This one is still a big mystery, and Nintendo's obviously going to end up surprising everyone with something crazy and original, like they always do. Rumored stuff includes:

Launch Title
- Mario's Adventure (3D Action with MiniGame)
- Wave Race:Feel the Stream
- NiGHTs (SEGA)
- Grasp! (Nintendo's New Puzzle Game)
- Nintendo Bros. (Communication tool and not SmashBros.)

Developing Title
- Metroid Nexus (RetroStudio)
- Angel Land Story: Icarus (CAPCOM)
- Super Mario Nexus (Mario 128)
- Crystal Chronicles 2 (not Final Fantasy)
Angel Land Story: Icarus = Dead Phoenix?

And GameCube: http://cube.ign.com/e3/2005/games/


SONY PS2 & PS3

Here's a list of confirmed stuff, without surprises included:

This list is HUGE. Note Pump is in the list. :D

For PS3, it's also a mystery, however, it's definitely going to be there. Here's some games IGN has info on:

Scarface: The World is Yours
Possession
The Darkness  
Demonik  
Dark Sector
Akira Kurosawa's Oni
Theseis  
Metronome

And Sony's PS3 billboard ad thing:

MICROSOFT XBOX 360

Here's IGN's list: http://xbox360.ign.com/e3/2005/games/

And 1Up's feature on what's coming: http://xbox360.1up.com

They have tons of info about games already... it's looking REALLY nice. Perfect Dark Zero, Ghost Recon 3, and Dead or Alive 4 as a few of the launch games.... the screenshots are NICE and if they can make PDZ rule, I think it'll have a damn nice launch. For those who are uninformed, here's the basic specs of the system: http://xbox360.1up.com/do/feature?pager.offset=1&cId=3140209



So, that's it! This is gonna be freaking COOL.

I'm really looking forward to the stuff on the next-gen consoles, just to see what kinds of crazy shit each company puts up to try to outdo the competition.

Also really looking forward to more info on the new Zelda GC game.

This is stupid.

"Game Boy Micro".  Smaller than an iPod Mini.  How on earth that would be a good gaming device i have no idea.  Unless, the controls are situated like the old GBA.

You mean this?

The first thing that caught my attention : "in the new Legend of Zelda game, Link will apparently be able to turn into a werewolf."   O.o  :O and um, wtf?

LLMax, they are. It's shaped like the old GBA, with your hands separated more instead of cramped up. The buttons are more like the old, softer action-style buttons instead of the clicky monstrosities that are on the SP. The screen is also reportedly the brightest and clearest on the market.

bse, yes. I mean that exactly. Did you see the trailer on IGN? Holy shit, it looks WEIRD. It's really really pretty... but weiiiiiiiird. IGN's been speculating that "Twilight Princess" is a sort of reference to the old Ladyhawke movie, where the princess transforms into a hawk by day (while the warrior is human) and the warrior transforms into a wolf by night (while the princess is human). It could be a very interesting play mechanic, to say the least.

Well, here's this from http://www.nintendo.co.jp:



What is this guy saying?


The press release:  http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n10/e3_2005/revo/news_release_e.html

NINTENDO'S COMPACT CONSOLE WILL
TURN THE WORLD OF GAMING ON ITS SIDE  
New System will be Forward-Thinking, Yet Backward Compatible  


LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2005 - Each generation of video game consoles builds on the past to set new standards for the future. As the company with the strongest heritage of innovation, Nintendo redefines expectations for all next-gen systems by employing a wide-ranging strategy to attract more kinds of gamers to more kinds of games. When Nintendo's new console, code-named Revolution, arrives in 2006, everyone will discover the meaning of All-Access Gaming.
"We will show the world what a next-gen system can be. Revolution marries the strongest heritage of innovation to the future of gaming," says Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. "With backward compatibility and the 'virtual console' concept, the stylish, compact body provides maximum gaming power. It will not only take home entertainment into another dimension by expanding the definition of video games, but it also will give you access to the great history of gaming."
Some of the system features that wowed the crowd at the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E³) in Los Angeles include:

The cool look: The new console boasts high-quality materials and a smart, compact design, approximately the size of three standard DVD cases stacked together. A variety of prototype colors are being showcased during E³. It will come with a silver stand that makes the system a welcome, artistic component of any multimedia setup, whether it's displayed vertically or horizontally.
Backward compatibility: The new console plays all games from the current Nintendo GameCube™ generation. But there's more...
The secret weapon: The console also will have downloadable access to 20 years of fan-favorite titles originally released for Nintendo® 64, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System® (SNES) and even the Nintendo Entertainment System® (NES).
Easy expansion: A bay for an SD memory card will let players expand the internal flash memory.
Two disc formats, one slot: Instead of a tray, a single, innovative, self-loading media bay will play both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system as well as Nintendo GameCube discs. Owners will have the option of equipping a small, self- contained attachment to play movies and other DVD content.
The specs: The system boasts 512 megabytes of internal flash memory, wireless controllers, two USB 2.0 ports and built-in Wi-Fi access. A worldwide network of Nintendo players can gather to compete in a comfortable, inviting environment. Revolution's technological heart, a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named "Broadway," and a graphics chip set from ATI code-named "Hollywood," will deliver game experiences not previously possible.
The stars: Introduction of a number of new franchise properties will add to the world's richest stable of stars, including Mario, Zelda, Super Smash Bros., Donkey Kong and Metroid.
Wireless freedom: A number of Wi-Fi-enabled launch titles are in development that will employ Nintendo's newly announced wireless gaming service, Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. A worldwide network of Nintendo players can gather to compete in a comfortable, inviting environment.
Freedom of design: A dynamic development architecture equally accommodates both big-budget, high-profile game "masterpieces" as well as indie games conceived by individual developers equipped with only a big idea.  
"Our next console proves small in size but big on ideas," says Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales & marketing. "We're throwing open the doors of gaming to wider audiences, from casual players to hard-core gamers who live for the thrill of defeating an endless army of wireless opponents."
" Nintendo's All-Access Gaming philosophy covers the spectrum. The next console fits anywhere. It brings together new games and old. It gives people worldwide access through wireless Wi-Fi connections. And it opens the world of video games - to everyone. Software for the new console will even attract people who don't consider themselves players. Adults, kids, men and women around the world will have access to the most popular video game characters, the best game franchises and the most engaging experiences yet developed - only with Nintendo.

If you look at the DS, well, they made that concept work. With two screens and everything.
