With E3 about to happen, what news are you most excited for and what games are you looking forward to?

A Super Smash Bros sequel would be amazing if it is true and the new Metal Gear Solid game looks amazing, can't wait to see Raiden

Fifa is using voice commands now with the Kinect. You can sub players on the fly with you voice, if you curse at a call or something the games announcers will recognize it.

This is the worst Microsoft Press Conference at E3 I have ever seen. Really? End out your Presser with 10 minutes of gameplay on a game that ISN'T exclusive to your system? Waste of time.

With struggling IP's... its hard to imagine EA and Ubi even remotely knocking anything out of the park. With Sony's stocks dipping to an alltime low, I guarantee they're reformatting their Press Conference. And Nintendo shot about 80% of their load yesterday when they revealed everything about the Wii U in advance. Ugh.

It's been like this since the revamp/relaunch of E3, I think the conventions themselves are starting to become less and less relevant mainly just do to all the much better ways to get word out, less and less people see to want to sit around for 2 hours to watch a game company announce 5 or 6 titles, they would rather just read one of the many reports on it later and save time. As game companies start to realize this, they work less and less on their E3 presentations.

I agree, some cool stuff but they haven't really shown anything to strong. I was hoping for more games with more variety (not that crappy Kinect castle game). They spent to much time on ESPN in my opinion

they just threw money out with to get Usher and Montana playing a football game thinking it will fix it.

Sony might have something not sure, the Super Smash Bros ripoff could be cool if it's done right and they have a good cast, Nintendo just needs to focus some new games and explain the Wii U better

Lego City> Sim City. Lego City looks like a Lego Version of GTA except PG.

Some cool things from Nintendo: Pikman 3, Batman, Zombi U, Rayman, New Super Mario Bros U and 3DS, Luigi's Mansion 3DS, Mass Effect 3 (If they fixed the ending), Ninja Gaiden 3, Game and Wario,

Maybes: Nintendo Land, Trine 2

They didn't show enough games at their conference in my opinion and should have gotten some more time instead of doing the online thing.

I think Sony won out of the Big 3 but Ubisoft had the best conference

Crysis 3

Worse things about E3
Microsoft- believe in your franchises. You should have saved Halo 4 for the end. You look like you have little confidence in your company when you end your conference wit a game that isn't exclusive to your system. Also quit trying to turn my game system into a cable box. Its meant to play games not watch TV.

Doing an overall best/worst for personal opinions? Hell yeah!

My turn then.

Best: NHL, UFC, NBA and NFL are coming to Xbox - Being in England is above all a fucking nightmare for me to find good coverage for these. This makes my life a hell of a lot easier for these sports. Really glad they're following MLB on this 1. If a few other leagues would follow I'd be over the fucking moon! But this is brilliant news!

Gears 4 - I saw it and thought "You money grabbing cunts". Nothing has changed, but after seeing gameplay and getting my mind blown by seeing Baird in cuffs (THE best character!) I'm probably going to buy it. Depending on if Gears 3 is added to the near 90 games I've 100%'d.

Worst:

EA - You're cunts. You've been nothing but cunts for years. I've not bought a game from you in nearly 3 years and the 1 game I was given that you make I am starting to regret playing. You're Kinect BS does little to tingle my penis and you should try not to fix things that aren't broken.

Splinter Cell - Pretty sad you're copying little things from Hitman, Assassins Creed and probably other great stealth games when you were 1 of the first around. *Points to UAV and COD which made me lol*

No games - I don't want any game any console are bringing out from what they revealed. Don't game me wrong, a lot of games look pretty sexual, just nothing I'm going to get for a long time when prices go down.

Games for Wii U: Pikeman 3, Batman Arkham City Armored Edition, Mass Effect 3 (both of these use the screen for gameplay), Assassin's Creed 3, Rayman (Looks amazing), Darksider's 2, Game and Wario, Just Dance 4, Lego City (Think Grand Theft Auto except Lego), New Super Mario Bros U, Ninja Gaiden 3, Nintendo Land (A bunch of minigames from other Nintendo series ie Mario, Donkey Kong, and Zelda), Wii Fit U, and Zombi U (My favorite so far)

Sounds interesting.

I find I used my Xbox the most, but I do feel Wii having a proper online experience would help a lot.

I also liked how easily modifiable my Wii was too, so I can make full use of it by using Emulators and such. Hoping the Wii U will be the same.
