QOTW: What big reveal do you most want to see at E3?

Every week the hosts of TalkRadar present and answer a new "Question of the Week" - a personal inquiry which unearths some of our deepest, and sometimes most sinister, gaming memories. Everyone is encouraged to answer each week's question, so go ahead, tell us your most glorious, nostalgic, or shameful story!

This week's question:

What big reveal do you most want to see at E3?

What games do you want announced? What trailers do you want to see? What's the most earth-shattering announcement you can possibly imagine?

Answer this week's question in the comments!

Questions can also be answered in the QOTW forum thread. Our favorite posts this week will be read next week on TalkRadar 54, and appear in the next edition of this article. Listen to TalkRadar 53 tomorrow for our answers!

Last week's question:

What game are you most
ashamed you never beat?

Thanks for your responses, everyone! A lot of you gave up on a Zelda game - don't worry, we can sympathize with Water Temple fatigue. Various Final Fantasy games were also prevalent, as were Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, and some of those other damned artsy games that you know you should have beat.

Below are a few of last week's answers that tickled our collective fancies, but since we can't feature them all here, check out last week's article and forum thread for more...

"Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link on the NES (You remember that shiny gold cartridge, right?). I've conquered pretty much every other game from my childhood, but that one still haunts my dreams. I must have played the first couple temples in that game hundreds of times, but never made it any further. There's a point where you get to a series of caves, which eventually lead you to the glove item that lets you move boulders. I could never make it to that damn glove, thanks to the caves being full of bats and ******* bipedal alligators with battle axes and assorted other bullshit enemies that kicked my ass /every/ time. After struggling with it for awhile I would get frustrated and quit...until it eventually lured me back to try again, always with the same result."

"Persona 4. I've put eighty hours into it since christmas, and still haven't seen the end yet. The level grind is killing me, as are the bosses. Uck. My affection for the game is unrequited. Why don't you love me back, Chie??"

"Mine for now is Valkyria Chronicles. Especially because of what I had to do to get it.

After T-Dar and Brett Elston's initial endorsement of the game, and being a fan of anime, I decided to take a look at some trailers of the game and I fell in love with the art. So I went out to a bunch of places here in my useless little corner of India to find the game. After searching all over town I found 1 copy in the last place I could have checked. After this, there was the problem of money ie: I had none.

So I managed to get them to reserve the game for 2 months for me until I could put the cash together. When I went back I was sure it would have been sold. Surprisingly, it was still tucked away in the drawer with my name on it. Apparently no one ever asked for the game or seemed to know it existed.

I brought the game home and played for 2 days but got immediately carried away preparing for my finals. That was in March. I still pick it up off my shelf from time to time but immediately put it back since I know I don't have the time to go back to it.”

  • jake899 - June 1, 2009 6:41 p.m.

  • mimus - June 1, 2009 3:15 a.m.

    Diablo 3! more more more. The witch doctors cool and all but i still want more!
  • ZombiesVsYourMom - June 1, 2009 12:58 a.m.

    A Mario, Zelda, Halo, Half-Life are a given right? But what about Wave Rave (screw the mini game in Wii Sports Resort!) or a 3D sequel to one of the last great NES games, and best in the series, Kirby's Adventure? F-Zero and a new Conker (minus any non-platform gimmick) would be a god-send too!
  • dml1127 - May 31, 2009 11:48 p.m.

    Saints row 3 or NBA live 10/2k10
  • thefatone09 - May 31, 2009 11:42 p.m.

    Something from Nintendo that won't make me weep tears of blood. Maybe just normal tears, but if I lose anymore blood from crying, I might need to be hospitalized.
  • Bradders - May 31, 2009 4:31 p.m.

    A bleedin' sequel to the Oddworld series. No Stranger, no Munch just good ol' Abe with a few sligs to keep him company and a bonus disc with all of the Slig news bulletins. You might as well go ahead and make it co-op to appeal to the masses while you are at it. While we're on the subject include lots of guns, have Activision make it, let it have 64 player multiplayer, no Abe and make it a first person shooter and rebrand it as Call of Duty: Oddworld at War. Unfortunately that will make millions and Oddworld would barely scrape the top 10 chart.

    I am the Norwegian King of Names! I require a full-blown Pokemon RPG on the Wii that totally breaks the mould. That means no starting with either a grass, fire or water Pokemon like in EVERY OTHER GAME. Failing that, a Katamari game set in Hawaii.
  • Sandman89 - May 31, 2009 2:18 p.m.

  • CandiedJester - May 30, 2009 8:22 p.m.

    I want to see more of Dark Void. That game looks epic. I want to see Half Life 3 announced. And I know it's a very, very long shot, but I would absolutely love anyone who was willing to pick up Duke Nukem Forever and finish the damn thing. Because I want to play it.
  • Hobojedi - May 30, 2009 5:24 p.m.

    C'mon, let's see some Doom 4!
  • 1NVAD3R - May 30, 2009 5:18 p.m.

    Some news from Blizz about Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 would be nice. Haven't heard anything in a while. A new Metroid Prime Something about GTA As much as I know it won't happen, something about Mario, nothing but sports since Galaxy. Hopefully a new system cause Wii sucks (buuuuuurn)
  • Skooch - May 30, 2009 3:31 p.m.

    I'd love to see the looks on the crowd's face if Sega leapt up onto the stage and unveiled the Dreamcast 2. I wouldn't know how to feel.
  • DarthKyoKai - May 30, 2009 4:18 a.m.

    Halo 4, Modern Warfare 2, Bad Company 2 (with multiplayer NOT ON XBOX LIVE!!!!!!!), KoTOR 3, a Star Wars game thats based off one of the books (i know im a geek, but thats fine), and valve making ANYTHING CLOSE TO A PORTAL SEQUEL or maybe HALF-LIFE 3!!!!! please!!!! you can do it people...... btw reCAPTCHA marrying Bucknell (wtf??????!!!)
  • Pytor - May 30, 2009 4 a.m.

    The Sega Pendulum: Sega pulls a fast one and reveals swings back into the console race! With launch titles like Phantasy Star Phorever, NFL MMXI, Soul Brand, Toy Commander 2: Moving Into a New House and Sonic Adventure Extreme Unleashed, Sega will once return to glory! Seriously, I can't wait for Brutal Legend. I'd love to see something new from Bungie, besides Halo. The latest on Splinter Cell would be sweet. Some Bioware Old Republic goodness would be appreciated. Finally, of course, I'd love for Harmonix to reveal that Lego Rock Band is just a joke then blow our MINDS with the Beatles. Oh, and PLENTY OF BOOTH BABES!!! Keep up the great work!
  • speno93 - May 30, 2009 2:46 a.m.

    definately Halo 4. Cos it is too much to ask for Bungie to give us a halo game with an actual conclusive ending? and not some "wake me when there may or may not be cool space battles, becasue Bungie aren't arsed to give a decent ending" crap either. Finish it properly!
  • nik41507 - May 29, 2009 10:52 p.m.

    Command and Conquer 4. I know it's coming, just not when. It will be the end of the Tiberium saga I NEED IT!
