Game of the conference, hands down.
Quite possibly the biggest announcement of the whole event.
Sounds pretty awesome. Would love to know if videos of the event will be available after the conference.
The dice are the players. Instead of rolling a 1 with a crit-fail, your linebacker snaps his ankle in half. Instead of rolling a 20 critical, you get an 82-yard return for goal. The mechanics are pretty similar.
But I already shifted my work schedule around so I could watch all the conferences! Dammit all!
Possibly because this game wasn’t developed in 10 months, that the devs are taking lessons from Skyrim, that EA actually pushed the launch date back so the devs could make an uncompromised next-game instead of a hobbled current-gen game?
I wasn’t particularly excited for either of the DAs, but DA3 has my attention.
We knew so much more about UE4 because Epic makes money selling their engine, whereas EA makes money selling their games. The UE4 info was meant to showcase the engine to devs so that they’d hop on board. EA has no such need with their engine, so they can take their time on releasing details.
You hired a machine to work for you?! Do you realize what you have done?!
AI fish > AI ducks. I mean seriously, fish go up and down as well as side to side. What can a duck do? Swim in a circle and put its head in the water with its butt in the air? Wait… duck butts in air > AI fish.
The conference was on a strict, one-hour time limit broadcast on cable TV. The audience paying attention to that is far different than the audience sitting down to a two-hour long presentation over the Myspace of streaming services. MS isn’t trying to downplay gaming, it’s just that this particular event was directed at gamers. That’s what they said E3 was going to be for when days before this event even happened. IMO, we’re lucky we got as much gaming info during the event as we did.
It’s a USB 3.0 port. There are two more on the back side. I presume the one on the side is where you’re most likely to plug in the charging cable.
He makes a very important and well known point that the Wii’s success went hand-in-hand with the Wii’s stellar initial popularity. It’s the game that got non-gamers to purchase a console. Many people across the industry have made very reasonable and convincing arguments that without Wii Sports the Wii would not have half of the console sales that it has. Wii Sports is, without a doubt, the game that single-handedly captures the idea behind the Wii.
Now that’s what I call a party!
