Favorite Trailers of E3

by Steve Napierski to Videos

These are my personal favorite trailer’s from this year’s E3. That doesn’t necessarily mean they are the things that I am most excited about from the convention (some are), but these are just my favorites.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is so cute and unique it’s just so impressive that this is for the Wii.

Donkey Kong Country Returns is just what it should be. Loving the new retro renaissance that is happening right now in the gaming world.

After such a water downed showing in Mortal Kombat vs. DC this is their “we’re sorry and we learned our lesson” game. I believe them

Portal 2… Nuh said, bub.

    It’s good that Nintendo finally realized it just has to keep making the same thing over and over again to make money..it leaves the more adult games for the other two consoles. Let’s face it, Nintendo never did make more adult oriented titles very well.

      Agreed

  • Eh

    What’s so “adult” about making mincemeat out of people?

      Nothing necessarily. But I like it when games don’t tone it down. It’s not about violence, it’s about maturity.

      “Mature” is the last term I’d use to describe a Mortal Kombat game. It’s got more of a childish obsession with gore than a mature approach to violence. Not that there’s anything wrong with childish gore games every now and again, but I tire of people claiming that games like that are about being old enough to enjoy it “properly.”

      I enjoyed Mortal Kombat when I was 12 because spinal cord removal triggered responses like “Awesome!” and “That was soooooo cool!” Mature game it is not.

      That said, the new game looks interesting. Better than any of the other wishy washy 3D ones anyway.

    PortalĀ² :D

    I think the game that went the farthest towards, “I want it now” was the new Metroid. I’m not into first-person games, so I’ve largely ignored the Prime trilogy. But seeing a Metroid game that’s mostly third person got me really excited.

    I’m also interested in the new Zelda, but no more so than I was before.

    Portal 2 looks like it could be a lot of fun (one of the few first person games I’ve been willing to play in the last decade), as does Force Unleashed 2. I’m failing my save against Star Wars: The Old Republic, too. I don’t WANT to be interested in that game, because I stay away from MMOs, but they’re piquing my interest anyway.

    Kinect was utterly underwhelming. The Kinectimals are terrifying, like feline Jokers. The Move actually looks like it has some potential, even if it is just a Wii ripoff. Sorcery looked like it could be a lot of fun.

    I was deeply disappointed that there were no announcements about Mass Effect 3 or Dragon Age 2.

    I liked the new 360 trailer, cause I don’t have a 360 yet (of my own) and was gonna get one, now I can get a better one :D

    Damn, I didn’t play the first Portal yet. Wonder if there will be comming a neat bundle…
    Hm, and I don’t know if it is a good thing that Nintendo started this back-to-the-roots-movement. Is this really all we can expact from them? No more real Inventions?
