[Column] General: My Best and Worst of E3 2014

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Another year, another E3, but this time I’m not at the show. Like the rest of you, I’ve been fixated on every stream and piece of information I can find. Overall, I can say this year’s E3 is turning out to be an OK show, but nothing altogether spectacular.

  • The motherfunking BATMOBILE! Also Elite: Dangerous and No Man's Sky.

    Don't really know about worst of E3. Probably the CGI trailers with little to no in-game footage. There were lots of those.

    No Man's Sky has potential to be a deep experience, hoping it's not dumbed down by marketing. :)

    No Man's Sky has been the most intriguing game I've seen, unfortunately I feel it's going to be a bit limited in what you can do.  Exploring planets, engaging in the occasional dogfight and upgrading your ship is all fine and good, but 20 planets later do you think most people will want to continue on?

    Meh, I don't know. Destiny introduced some gameplay footage that looked really nice. Maybe you're feeling a little bit of that over-hyped vibe. 

     

    I kind of agree with you on the other two. Not because I think they're the worst games, but because I simply want more info. I was hoping that battlefront was going to be showing full-on gameplay footage.

    Your opinion is your opinion so respected. But totally disagree.

    No Man's Sky all the way, if there is at least some ground based combat in it to go along with that space combat...I am totally in it.

    With Destiny, I think they just used horrible footage at the conference because what they showed on the floor the next day that IGN was playing...looked so much better.

    I love RPG's but I hated Dragon Age 1 and 2.  SO boring.  The new one does look pretty awesome though.

  • CrusadesCrusades Columbus, OHPosts: 480Member

    If all Destiny is, is halo with new skin then that's just fine with me. I loved Halo 1,2, and 3. The thing is, it looks like more than just Halo with new skins, time will tell, but either way it's going to be a solid game me to enjoy as well as many others. 

    Battlefront 3 .... if it runs anything like Battlefield 4 then we are screwed - the game has so much potential but it's got alot of mishaps and Battlefront 3 most likely will have the same. Console can improve simply by limiting the number of players in mulitplayer to 40 or less. PC - servers always could use help unless they are run by the company and typically BF series has not been.

    hmm seeing my most anticipated games on your "meh" list doesn't bode well for playing anything new this year. No offense but I hope you're wrong :)

    I really dont have dislikes lol

     

  • InktomiInktomi merrick, NYPosts: 663Member

    The good: Xenoblade Chronicles X was very impressive, same as Elite: Dangerous, Splatoon and EVE Valkyrie.

    The bad: I was not impressed with all the same-same FPS shooters, rehashed and sequels. Looking at you Destiny.

    The ugly: I really though that Star Citizen would have looked better for 40+ million raised and all this time in development.

  • DMKanoDMKano Gamercentral, AKPosts: 8,523Member Uncommon
    Yet another E3, yet another meh.

    I am wondering how many years E3 has left at this point, the show haa been on a steady decline.
  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid hell, NJPosts: 6,772Member Uncommon

    i was really interested in The Order 1886 but after watching this video about the game im not interested anymore. Those devs have no clue about what they are doing. Disturbing....

    Marketing?

    It's an indie game - the entire team is 4 developers.

    It's basically Starbound 3D, but with dumbed down gameplay.

  • besteverbestever prescott, AZPosts: 732Member
    I'm with you on destiny. Its a boarder-halo-land to me. I'll check it out at some point but it feels like I've been there done that. I was more hyped for The Division to be honest. Looks great. Not really a MMO I guess but could be super fun with four to five people.

    I'm with you. First time I seen it, it looked cool. Then seen game play and was a sad panda. A rise/gears of war game. Just didn't seem very good this time when I seen it at E3,

    Well, Battlefront and ME4 obviously weren't coming this year anyways. I was just hoping to learn more about them. Destiny was the only one I actually saw a ton of and still came away "meh" on. There's a bunch of really sweet stuff coming out this year overall.

    E3 is pretty much an investor showoff, and the video game industry is getting more and more formulated and instutionalized as the years go on......just like Hollywood and the music industry, totally kills serendipity and originality, im 39 years old now, and I get why most entertainment is geared toward the 18 to 35 year old demographic. Not knocking being young, but if you are young and don't quite get what I see, youll know it sooner or later, I get older and expect more substance, and apparently that cost to much money......But on the other hand most younger people can have more time on their hands to play games, idk

    Man No Mans Sky looks very interesting...  That shit better be coming to PC!!
