Project Origin is lookin' pretty good, if it plays just as good or even better than the original, I'll be enjoying it :D. What I wanna know is what happened to the guy you played as in F.E.A.R. :(
Also, when they say sequel, do they start from the end of FEAR or the expansion packs? I don't believe Monolith was behind the expansions (because I have no clue) so I'm curious

and Monolith didn't create the expansions so I think they're just ignoring them and forging ahead with the story they want.

Apparently for the 360 at least, Guitar Hero World Tour instruments will be compatible with Rock Band. http://www.gamespot....estnews;title;4

On that GH:WT article - I wonder what happens when you plug a GHWT drumset in for RB2 though. I guess un-used instruments FTL.

Quick thoughts:

Nintendo's press conference was just embarrassing. Absolutely terrible. I'm extremely disappointed that there were no announcements of "core" traditional games that we were promised. Really just a big huge mess. So that's all I have to say about Nintendo this year.


Now, Microsoft and Sony were both boring as hell to watch, maybe because my interest in gaming is waning, but I was just doing a by-the-numbers comparison of the two, and I got this:

Microsoft demoed 5 games. Sony demoed 1.
Microsoft showed 16 trailers and game montages. Sony showed 9.
Microsoft had 12 games with release dates announced or mentioned in the conference. Sony had 4.
Microsoft spent 2 minutes before ever getting to showing us a single videogame. Sony took 12.

An objective look at the thing, and it's no wonder Microsoft decided to postpone the Halo announcement. It would almost be embarrassing to announce a new Bungie game at that awful E3.

sony is going to offer downloads for movies?! i don't understand why sony is offering movie downloads when they have the blu-ray system for that. they kept pushing for blu-ray and when they were success they then offer movie download service. what would be the advantage for download service compared to owning a blu ray movie?

the $30 price for greatest hits probably hints that they're loosing a lot more then they have hoped for and is probably informing us that they're trying to narrow they're loses from system sales and such.

nintendo's was awesomely aweful. they didn't have much to show other then the new add-on that makes the wii remote more accurate and the game that will show and prove it's purpose. though the news about conduit was very promising [this wasn't e3, though].

No it doesn't. Platinum Hits on 360 is $30 as well. This was exactly what was expected.

I didn't get a chance to watch the Nintendo conference in full.

And I will never get the chance. Just tried to watch the first 6 minutes... holy fucking shit.

This is why you don't get some bigwig from marketing to do these things (no offence to anyone here that may working in that department), let alone start them off. Those few minutes I watched was worse than being fed a PowerPoint presentation.

Gotta say that MS gave a pretty nice show, especially when you compare to the sad Nintendo offerings. That was a heartbreaker.
