Dante’s Inferno opens up the EA press conference. Wow. Looks absolutely insane. Seems to have a similar art style to the God of War games.
Sims 3 is shown. Never a big Sims fan but this looks fun. The iPhone version has been getting good reviews so I’ll give that one a look.
Littlest Pet Shop shown. Thank god TiVo has a fast forward
Charm Girls Club. Saw some girls play “Speed Hair Teasing” before TiVo remote could be picked up. Fast forward…Thank you TiVo
Need for Speed : Shift shown. Looks interesting. Very Nice graphics. They were talking about the innovative ‘cockpit view’ which didn’t seem all that innovative to me. It’s the view I see in most games that I dislike and switch away from.
Dragon Age : Origins is coming out October 20th on PC, PS3 and Xbox. Lots of cinematics, no idea how good the game looks or what gameplay looks like.
Mass Effect 2 is shown. Looks like Shepherd isn’t dead, just faking to run some covert op. No elevators are shown, that’s a good sign. Tons of great cinematics shown, looks amazing but no real gameplay.
Fight Night : Round 4 is shown. Tyson vs. Ali and it looks great. Comes out June 25th.
EA Sports : MMA is announced for 2010.
Lots of sports games are shown.
Madden Online Franchises are announced. 32 Player franchises with trades, message boards, stats, standings, iPhone App. Looks interesting if people stick with it.
Wii Games shown. Starts with Wii EA Active and selling the fact that games can be a positive force. Grand Slam Tennis shown, looks like a better version of the Wii Sports game.
The Saboteur is shown and actual gameplay is seen. The game is black and white until you win over the people in that area. Looks like a re-imagining of the Hitman series.
EA then shows Tim Schafer and Brutal Legend. Character design looks crazy good. Tim comes off as really loving the game and the voice actors in it: Ozzy Ozzbourne, Lita Ford, Rob Haford, Lemmy. This game looks hella fun. Lands Roctober 13th.
Crysis 2 is coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and the PC. Nothing else known right now.
APB is shown. An MMO set in a city. 100 players, some are criminals, some are cops. Very interesting concept. More cinematics shown. Guessing it’s just PC but they didn’t mention anything.
Star Wars guys all roll out to the theme music. Sith and Jedi abound. Lucas Arts and BioWare guys come out. Here’s The Old Republic MMO announcement we’ve been hearing about for years. Trailer looked good but just more cinematics. With BioWare I think it will be amazing.
