    Reading through the conference now and found it very underwhelming. Keen for a new tomb raider and can't wait for the witcher 3 but there both multi platform, Halo collection may convince me to get an xbox on but it's up against destiny. Microsoft have failed to change the momentum imo and will be relying on sony stuffing up.

    Really interested in hearing accounts of Project Morpheus, how they deal with the latency and such. I have a feeling it's gonna be cool, but Oculus has that Facebook money now, so it's a more even playing field.

    If Sony fully backs it with their new stuff, and it's not a shitty gimmick like Move was, that is a system seller for me. But them devoting a 12 second announcement to it doesn't exactly fill me with hope.

    I preferred the Sony presentation over the Microsoft one. My general complaint is the limited in game footage they provided. Nearly everything was cinematic

    Yea I feel similar thou they showed some really exciting games and looking forward to seeing some gameplay over the next few days. I expect Bungie will put out a demo and am so keen for the beta starting this week.

    Wish someone would hurry up and remake Commander Keen. Either that or SimAnt.

    Now we just have to sit and wait very, very impatiently and wait for an exact release date rather than "2015". Then when we have that, we wait even more impatiently for the actual release. :crazy:

    A new Pokesnap would be amazing, along with Stadium 1+2 it's the only spinoff I sunk a considerable amount of time into.

    And speaking of Pokemon, Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire trailer:

    Also Miyamoto showed up at the end of their event, and was playing some game that was out of focus and hard to tell what it was, there's really only one flying game that comes to mind on a Nintendo console though......

    Good God. You can clearly see a wooden fort of some kind, a city or castle even further back, and detail quite far away. This draw distance, if that was in game, is very freaking impressive.

    Can't get over how gorgeous this looks. Haven't been this hyped over a single image since this: http://i.imgur.com/SlN83AY.jpg

    That ended up being my favorite game, so here's hoping.

    I can't afford all these great game announcements. Nintendo in particular is going to bankrupt me.

    It wouldn't surprise that, if you squinted really, really hard, you could spy a Goron over on that volcano. :lol:

    Haha, that Stan Marsh picture just about sums it up.

    Probably the first time I am glad to own a Wii U.

    I thought they did. Little things in Forza for example which fans had been calling off like weather impacts seemed to have been added now.

    All in all, I thought E3 was excellent - top to bottom, across pretty much every platform. There seemed to be a clear step up, I think the game designers are learning how to unleash next gen power and taking advantage of it.
