Battlefield 3 at E3 (EA conference)

So EA just finished their live show, to be honest I’m not a huge fan, I don’t like sports game, and because of that I feel a bit “meh” most of the time, going through so many different sports games.

Anyway.

A thing I want to mention before going into Battlefield 3 and how that will kick the ass out of MW3 (my opinion) let’s talk about some shit talk from EA. They start by saying that they will keep it simple, their show will be all about the games and game developers, unlike certain other companies that bring celebrities on to the stage. Being a hint towards Microsoft for bringing out ICE-T during the showing of Gears of War 3. And after a while… there they go bringing in American football all-stars on to the stage. When that happened… well let’s just say my jaw dropped.

BATTLEFIELD 3
This is the shit right here! The demo EA just showed for the game was stunning, looked great, and made you feel like this is an actual FPS trying to stimulate a somewhat more realistic warzone. It made me drool and long for this game so bad.

If Modern warfare 3 is the arcade game of war.
Battlefield 3 is the war simulator.

IMPORTANT DATES AND INFO ON BF3
They also announced a few other important things. To begin with: RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 25. This if I remember correctly a date not earlier revealed.
OPEN BETA in September. Online stats and community will be free! They mentioned to send a message to MW3, we do the same thing for our players, but free. Let’s see how they will react to this fact, will the new MW3 Elite online thingy also become free within time to fight against BF3?

Yu Gi Oh – Coming to xbox live.

Believe it or not, the Yu Gi Oh card game is coming to xbox live! A game that is currently one of the biggest trading card games in the world, and it was just a matter of time til they moved a step beyond the PSP and NDS. What I dont like at this moment is the fact that you will have to buy packs with microsoft points to get more and new cards? Maybe there is a ingame function to get new cards as well, otherwise I see alot of players just sticking with what they start of with, if they will get it all knowing this.

Maybe it works more like a bonus pack, that gives you thoese extra and better cards. We’ll just have to wait and see about that. Here is the quoted info on the game, followed by a few pictures:

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.

Efter att ha skrivit en viss lista där jag nämnde Silent Hill 2. Ja en lista där jag beskrev att jag gärna skulle vilja se en remake på just detta spel. Så surfade jag in på Konamis hemsida och märkte att, komiskt nog skulle det bli en remake på ett Silent Hill spel… dock på det första… och till Wii och PSP.

Jag äger… inget av dom. Men det är ändå kul att se när en riktig klassiker får nytt liv, och hur dom kommer göra det, speciellt till wii.

Spelets namn då? Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Här är några fina punkter som kanske ökar suget:

>A re-imagining of the original Silent Hill that turns everything you thought you knew on its head.

>The game watches you and adapts to your actions to create a unique experience to each player and intensify their fears.

>Implementation of a cell phone as the user interface, which acts as a story telling device, map, puzzle helper, and camera that provides seamless flow with no interruption in gameplay.

>New nightmare sequence focus on escape and evasion rather than direct confrontation.

>Silent Hill: Shattered Memories will feature an all-new soundtrack by acclaimed series composer Akira Yamaoka.
