Best and Worst Of E3

May be a bit selfish, but this is simply the best (and worst) of E3 according to me. What made me smile and exactly why? Some of you will agree with me ofcourse and some of you will… Well probabaly go: “Bananaballs!” If you do, please point out what you thought was better (or worse) at this E3. 🙂

The Worst:
5. I was not there!

4. Bad Company 2
The lack of… was the problem.

3. Nintendo’s Conference
Im not sure about this one.. but.. was it just me that got really dissapointed? It was not enough Wooo moments. And its not like the…

2. Wii Vitality Sensor
…would save them? Who, why and what the hell is going on Nintendo?

1. James Cameron’s Speech.
Im sorry about this one but, to much time, not enough pictures, read my other post on this and why I skipped to write about Ubisofts “keynote”.

THE BEST PARTS:
Number Five – Live Online
Thank you to everyone and all that worked with the recording and beeing able to see some “Keynotes” online. For the people not beeing able to be there. It was 85% of the E3 experience. Thank you again.

Number Four – Alan Wake
When I first saw this game, the very first trailer and read about the story. I knew I wanted to play it, to see ingame photage and know that this game will be coming out. Is a happy day for me.

Number Three – MAG
256 players at the same time!? I was drooling at this point. Teams, teamwork, objectives, just imagine the kind of battles you can fight, and imagine what teamwork can do in this game!? Im gonna get a PS3 as soon as this gets released.

Number Two – Metal Gear Solid for 360
I applauded. No im not kidding. “Here’s i Hideo Kojima”. One of the biggest smiles I have ever had. Finaly MGS for 360, i’ve been waiting so long. Tho, a bit dissapointed when I found out it was not exclusive for the 360.

Number One – Project Natal + Milo
The biggest, baddest and greatest showing ever. Im sorry if you dont agree, but we’ve seen motion controlers before. We’ve seen what we need to use in order to play thoese kind of games. A controler, a camera something that works together with the game. In what way was this really about “motion”. Project Natal has given the words “motion control” a new meaning. Your body is the new controler. This together with the new AI project called Milo. We saw something that might be the begging of game AI and player interaction. Im seeing the future and im longing to try it out.

E-Repbubliken – SamhĂ€llssimulator?

Vi har alla sÀtt dom, World Of Warcraft, Guild Wars, Warhammer online och sÄ vidare. Spelen som lockar online spelare in i en fantasy vÀrld dÀr du styr en karaktÀr (och fler om sÄ vill) för att utföra uppdrag, quests och trÀffa mÀnniskor. En faktor som alltid har gjort att dessa spelen vÀxer i en otrolig fart. Spela med andra Àr framtiden för en riktigt lyckad försÀljning. Vilket har visats gÄng pÄ gÄng.

Men vad sÀgs om man inte Àr den dÀr, extrema gamern som vill springa runt och samla saker, för den trogne facebook anvÀndare och företagaren som kanske faktiskt inte kÀnner att just nÄgot av de nÀmnda spelen Àr nÄgot för dom?

DÄ Àr det bara att hoppa in i: E-Repbuliken!

erepbulik

Ett online spel dÀr du jobbar, Àter, startar företag, blir politiker, startar egna tidningar, blir soldat och jobbar dig uppÄt i herarkin. Allt detta i din egna trofasta takt och med dina egna val. E-Republik sÀtter dig lÀnst ner pÄ en stege, sen igenom karriÀr val och jobb sÄ fÄr du snart ansöka om högre positioner och tillslut Àven starta eget företag med kapital och anstÀllda (som sÄklart Àr andra anvÀndare).

En storslagen ide pĂ„ ett grafiskt minimalistiskt sĂ€tt, inga stora vĂ€rldan att springa vilse i, inga gömda skatter (vad jag vet?), utan en slags online simulator av en politisk vĂ€rld… eller rĂ€ttaresagt, vĂ„r helt egna vĂ€rld.

Trött pÄ att jobba bakom kassan pÄ ica. NÀsta stop:
