Re: X-planations #2: E3 Wrap-up edition

Kukurio, Subrosian Master: One thing in the article really disturbed me. He completely disregarded MP, throwing it aside as if it were garbage. Apparently, he hasn't read any of the ravings about it.

Response: Iím iffy with Metroid Prime. Iím so sorry if you donít understand the concept of people thinking for themselves and holding different opinions. If everyone thought jumping off of tall buildings was cool and they were raving about it, should you do the same and think the same even though its an idiotic act?

UserGoogol: I still like my reasoning. The person who wins E3 is not the person who gets the most "money" or "market share" from the event, or even, "popularity" or "hype," but the one who excites their fanbase the most.

Nintendo never ever releases information, so when they do, their fanbase either gets excited, or just gets annoyed and buys a Playstation. Or both!

So, in conclusion, Nintendo wins because I say so. It doesn't matter if Playstation and Xbox are more "Popular" because... well, I say so.

Response: Nobody really cares about your reasoning...sorry buddy. Nintendo doesnít release information because they really donít have anything to release. They move about as quickly and have the same excitement as a group of turtles trying to run a 500 mile race. Nintendo does not win because I say so. You donít count.

MushroomMarioMan: Microsoft A+, Nintendo C-, Sony D+? Come on.

XBox dominated news coverage because XBox live was the only major announcement. In games, Sony and Nintendo were easily ahead.

Metroid Prime was one of the best (if not the
best) games at the show. Zelda put on an impressive show as well. I liked what I saw with Mario Sunshine and Eternal Darkness.

We already knew about XLive too.

It's guaranteed you will see a MGS, FF, Tekken, and VF on PS2. It doesn't diminish them. I could use the same argument against Halo 2, Panzer, or DOA4 (we know it's coming).

How many of the 100 [games] are worth getting? Not too many. How many of those good titles are going to PS2 and GC? Almost all.

Response: Write your own damned article then.

Games? Where were you? Xbox had more exclusives and better games displayed than the competition. Metroid Prime is overrated. Doom III is a better game. Celda is Celda. The point with Nintendo is they showed NOTHING NEW. E3 is one of two times in the Nintendo year when theyíre supposed to roll out new games. All this yearís E3 was for Nintendo was an exact copy from last yearís Spaceworld (minus Gamecube information). Pretty lame overall.

We knew Microsoft had an online gaming service. We didnít have prices, info, details, game support, dates, or anything else besides "Microsoft is gonna eventually use the Ethernet card in the back of the system." It is the biggest announcement because it was the most unexpected and NEW (MEANING NOT A REPATITION FROM 8 MONTHS BEFOREHAND).

Yet Microsoft showed us things we werenít expecting. Thatís why it doesnít diminish E3ís effect for Microsoft.

Not particularly. Thereís an entire list of Sega exclusives as well as several big games (such as Ninja Gaiden). How many will be ported? Many. How many wonít be ported for 6 months to a year? Almost all of the ports.

Wing Zero: In games, MS is EAISLY ahead. Like we;ve said, how long have we known about MP and Zelda? It's gauranteed that you will get a mario, a zelda, and a donkey kong game on a nintendo console. How different has that formula changed since freakin 1985?

The thing was that we didn't KNOW about Doom 3. Doom 3 is also much more exciting, due to it being an extremely classic game.

Games that were exciting on the xbox:
- Panzer Dragoon Orta: This was RUMORED to cme for a while, and it finally came, with what I believe to be the best graphics so far. The in game stuff looked like FFX's FMV's. If you like Fantasy and science fiction, this is more than a gem.
-Brute Force: I'm excited about the game from having seen a more tactical team based mission set up Like rainbow six, but also the all out mayhem of unreal tournament and other shooters. I didn't really look at this game much, but I kno wmany friends who are excited about it.

Soul Calibur 2- Damn. I played this game un the DC and it is indisputably the king of fighting. I've looked a new screen shots. They are not just "new and improved," They're hundreds of times better. They mentioned something like exclusive people not on any other console; but I don't know about it.

They are too many [good games coming out] to name. 100+. Project Ego is coming, I've been played Morrowing and been diagnosed with Insomnia because of it. Mechwarrior is back with a purpose.Enlave. 18. The lost. Now, GC had HOW MANY surprising Titles? All son said was, 'Yeah, we're going online." No duh.

Response: I agree that Microsoft won in games. However, if the Nintendo formula for (limited) success has worked since 1985, why bother changing it? Metroid, Zelda, and Mario are top series that are almost certain to move systems to the hardcore market.

Doom III was shown off with nVidiaís new hardware last year. This was the first in-depth look at the game. Easily the top game of E3, but since its a PC game, Iím not dealing with it.

Soul Calibur 2 is slated for all systems and arcade (with some random rumors about secret Nintendo characters for the Gamecube version). If you want to talk about Microsoft games, I wouldnít use multiplatform games designed on another companyís arcade chipset as an example.

I canít think of a Nintendo announcement that actually surprised me outside of Yamauchi resigning.

SomeGuyYouDontKnow: The ratings is crap. I thought the whole thing was kind of lame. I would give micro a B maybe a B+. Nintendo problay a C cause they didnt show nothing new. Sony sucked I agree with you.

I have a feeling most of those Xbox games are gonna be good but not all that popular. The Xbox users only buy halo and sports. GunValkry (SP)and Jetset radio combined sold something like 600K in the US and Japan Combined. Thats pretty bad. I think the same thing will probaly happen with Panzer, Project EGO, and Shenmue 2.

Response: Opinions. Go look the definition up.

Gun Valkyrie sucked because the control scheme was completely awkward. JSRF is a great game but sells to a niche audience. Its too downright strange for everyone to even understand. Panzer and Shenmue might suffer the same fate, but it really depends how aggressively the two games are marketed. Project EGO (on the other hand) is highly anticipated and should experience some pretty high success rates.

Masamune: Well I can't trust the judgement of a person who rates Star Wars a C. That just.... *goes to clear head*

Response: OH NO!! SOMEONE SAID STAR WARS EPISODE II SUCKED!!! THE HORROR!! IT DOESNíT MATTER THAT THE ACTING WAS TERRIBLE, THE STORY WAS CHEESY, THE CGI WORLDS WERE UNBELIEVABLE WHEN THE REAL ACTORS (ALL 10 OF THEM) WERE PUT IN THEM, YODA FIGHTING WAS UNREALISTIC SINCE HE LIMPS BUT SUDDENLY JUMPS AROUND, SAMUEL L. JACKSON WENT FROM HAVING 4 LINES TO HAVING 20 (AND STILL IS UNDERUSED), KILLED OFF ONE OF THE MORE DEVELOPED CHARACTERS (AGAIN!), PUT EVEN MORE LOOPHOLES IN THE STORYLINE (TWO SITH MASTERS? EPISODE I CLAIMED "ONLY TWO...A MASTER AND AN APPRENTACE), THEY KEPT THE TRADE FEDERATION AND THE ONLY THING THATíS COME FROM THE MOVIEíS LEGIONS OF IDIOTIC FANS IS MORE MONEY TO SUPPORT GEORGE LUCASí CGI CRACK ADDICTION. SO LET ME REITERATE: STAR WARS EPISODES I AND II SUCKED!
