    Scalebound shouldve won "Best Dante outside DMC"

    Out of all the games at E3, Bloodborne won me over the most. With honorable mentions to MGS V, Xenoblade X, and Witcher 3. But, by far, the most intriguing game was No Man's Sky. I honestly have no idea what to think about it. It's immeasurable scale combined with it's minimalist narrative could potentially be one of the greatest and influential games of this era... ...or it could be as boring, empty and shitty as the galactic exploration in Spore. I have absolutely no idea.

    This year was awesome, a lot of games got me really excited for the coming months/year. Sucks that Splatoon didnt get a creative reward but no harm done. Though i will say the awards this year are a little weak compared to the awards last year.

    Cuphead should've won the cartoon award. That looks amazing!
  • Divine Paladin - June 13, 2014 7:23 p.m.

    Yeah, that game is literally a cartoon. Odd why it didn't get picked.
  • Swedish_Chef - June 15, 2014 3:12 a.m.

    Probably because we've barely seen anything of the game outside of a 30 second trailer, still looks hype as hell though.
  • Divine Paladin - June 15, 2014 9:21 a.m.

    True, but hey, if No Man's Sky is stealing the show to many people based on three minutes, I don't see the problem lol. (Hell, it won an award here!)

    Heh true enough, I heard there was a behind closed doors demo for the press though so it's probably due to that on top of the footage at Sony's conference. That being said the trailer was still awesome though.

    Im actually really excited for Forza Horizon 2 :D

    The CGI reveal at Sony's press conference was exciting enough, but after seeing actual gameplay footage, bloodborne is easily my game of this e3, and possibly what will make me end up buying a ps4 sooner than later. No man sky would be my second runner, if only because of its amazing scope and ambition. Even if the actual game doesn't deliver, it won't diminish the fact that it looked amazing in this e3

    I'm still split on what console to choose, mainly because Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3 and The Phantom Pain are the most impressive games I can't wait to play, from those consoles. I like M$ conference better than Sony's mainly because Sony bloated it to the point of being tiring to keep paying attention. Nintendo covers mainly what the other two don't have (IMO), purely gameplay driven games. Splatoon looks like it could be fun in a Mario Kart sense. Bayonetta bundle and Hyrule Warriors cover the action side this year for them. Shame Smash 3DS was delayed since if they don't delay the Wii U one I'll likely skip it.

    MS definitely had the better conference, if you judge the conference itself. Sony definitely fucked up after the first hour, and the conference itself wasn't as good, but content-wise, I'd say Sony was the one that offered the most out of the big 3, even counting the recap slides in the GR articles will prove that. A lot of it was third party games that will be on the Xbone sooner or later, to be sure, but still, the promise of games like BloodBorne, No Man's Sky, and other cool indies like Astebreed (a recently released SHMUP that looked and reviewed awesome on PC.) being promised for the PS4, I'm definitely leaning more towards Sony right now, though it's far from definitive yet. There's also PS TV to consider, that gadget has potential, specially if it can play most vita games for half th price. MS still had some good stuff though, That Ori game looked super cool, and ScaleBound is intriguing, specially because it's a platinum game. So I'm still weighing my options here. Nintendo did good too, but I'm just not as interested in what they are offering like you are. Another Zelda and another Star Fox is cool and all(and heck, even Bayonetta 2 fits this as well), but like I've said before, I already know what to expect, and thus I know what I'm missing. Splatoon looks cute but it's focus of multiplayer automatically makes me not care for it much, and no matter how much they try... Nothing can hide the fact that Hyrule Warrios is no more than a dynasty warriors game with Zelda skins, and I've had more than my fill with that series and that kind of gameplay.

    Also from Microsoft I like better Sunset Overdrive and Ori and the Blind Forest, than the spolighted Sony games, also Inside (the Limbo dev game) was more intriguing. I suppose it's tastes. My only issue is how many of these those indeed stay exclusive to either console. Also looking at the old Phantom Dust I can expect M$ having more exclusives I'm interested. Although also to be honest my history with Sony products is also a factor since tbh they don't make products that have good durability. Nintendo is Nintendo like you say, I still think they have games worth buying mainly because of replay value alone. But yeah you don't have the complete experience only owning one Nintendo console and or Sony/Microsoft/PC. I'll argue they still make more games that are fine with being games and still care enough for them to have depth. But oh well is a matter of balance I think a gamer can live alone of visceral experiences or pickup and play games alone.

    If your gonna throw the "I already know what to expect and thus I know what im missing" excuse, you might as well just regard Bloodborne as a Demon Souls Sequel, just saying, cause it technically is.
  • BladedFalcon - June 14, 2014 2:31 p.m.

    It definitely is, but it's of something I like 10 times more than a Zelda or a Mario game, and unlike those franchises, there aren't like 10+ iterations of the series just yet. :P
  • Vonter - June 14, 2014 3:02 p.m.

    That's true. My main counterargument is that I demand more color for this gen, Bloodborne I'm indifferent towards that game, since gameplay aside it looks like it follows the same tropes of the last seven years. Life sucks and you have to be strong to survive. The Witcher 3 looks to have a bit more "heroism" in it's trailer. From the Nintendo side, Splatoon, I hope it has long legs a la Mario Kart, because that looks simple but fresh.
  • BladedFalcon - June 14, 2014 10:03 p.m.

    Well, your tastes are your own, but you're wrong in thinking BloodBorne, (or any of the souls games for that matter...) follow the same tropes that other games have in this gen. In tone? maybe, but most definitely not in gameplay, structure, exploration or story. And last I checked, those things were far more important to a game than the number of colors used in their palette. Also... um... Have you played any of the previous Witcher games? far as I understand, Geralt de Rivia is far from a clean cut example of heroism... or positivity for that matter.
  • Vonter - June 15, 2014 3:16 p.m.

    I suppose, and yeas I agree but if the talk is about presentation some tropes are starting to get tiring. I mean, is a matter of degrees, and like we have discussed having options is better than all following the same bandwagon. Hence why the Witcher looks a bit appealer to me. Also yes, I haven't played those, however, it looks less dark than the other one, and at least in the demo it shows that the character can make positive choices. And also I mean, there's like a dark knight there, if he turns out to be the good guy that'll be funny and unexpected to see.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - June 14, 2014 7:58 p.m.

    That's beside the point. I notice you like to perfer new IP's over anything else, not just Nintendo, everything. And sure, why the hell not? We do need fresh air, but at times it can be just as much air when its a familiar anyway. You didnt need to call shots to defend Bloodborne, but atleast acknowledge its a spiritual successor/ close sequel. New IP or not. For example if they changed Kirby's Rainbow Curse to a new IP entirely, its not gonna stop it from being a sequel to Kirby Canvus Curse either way.
