Yoshinori's press conference shows us 3ds gameplay along with the shoulder view
At Yoshinori Ono's conference SSF4 on the 3DS was displayed. The preview has been thrown around for months and now we get to see it in action instead of a commercial. It looks pretty sick, and not too complicated, also the video doesnt give the eye popping effects as we will see in person, so this only gets better upon release. I for one love it, ssf4 on the go (no its not AE version), what do you guys think about it?
The action starts at15:00, everything before that is talking.
Introducing BatRastered, with special guests FNJimmy and Choke. Also special appearances by Major Nelson, StarSlay3r, Geoff Keighley, and gaming legend Adam Sessler.
Filmed just one week removed from E3 2010 the Gouki.com staff looks back at the E3 2010 press conferences. Introducing BatRastered, with special guests FNJimmy and Choke. Also special appearances by Major Nelson, StarSlay3r, Geoff Keighley, and gaming legend Adam Sessler. This non-stop romp the E3 press conferences is a brutal realization that these major corporations barely know how to entertain. EA's press conference had the most potential entertainment wise just hoping that Joel Mchale might just say something crazy. Which almost happened, but he seemed reserved most of the time and had to read very specific lines at some point. Sony lost points because Jack Tretton straight up says he didn't want Kevin Butler hosting because of his own EGO. WTF? So bore us to death.
Then there's the games which is mostly what this is about. Don't be a Jimmy! Enjoy Vlog #14 E3 2010 press conference review.
Leave some comments Jimmy and like this story!! Thanks.
With an hour long pre-E3 show, did gamers come out winning?
Yes we did! Konami made a head start in E3 today, or tonight depending on where you live, and the showed off some great news. Here's a review of their show.
They first began with video footage from the show and tease you at what's to come and who's going to talk. The first few minutes, Shiji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, America, he gives his thanks for the many prayers and wishes of the events in Japan, from the earthquake and tsunami.
Hirano-san then tells us that Hideo Kojima will be providing lectures on the Video Game Designers of the future in California. Konami will be launching events though out the world! Hirano-san announces Frogger 3DS and more DLC for Castlevania.
Konami then takes us to Tokyo, Japan to see how Metal Gear Solid 3DS is going. It's great! You'll be able to use the 3DS's camera to take pictures from the real world, and use it as in-game camouflage! Also, if you're climbing a tree, for example, you might fall if you tilt the 3DS! So play straight!

The original Jimmy! Check it out!
Jimmy screams about Too Human, Little Big Planet, Street Fighter IV, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2. Highs and lows from Sony, Microsoft and the Nintendo press conference. Video clips, drinking, cursing, Jack Palance is dead smack! All here in this Vlog ... Don't be a Jimmy!
Nintendo just announced that their press conference will be streamed online this year. This can't have anything to do with G4TV absolutely falling apart does it?

One of my favorite times of the year. I love the E3 Press Conferences.
Jimmy is back! It's E3 2009. I'm drunk talking about the Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Press Conferences. Don't miss this one Jimmy!
Tons of info coming out of Japan from Nintendo. Everything you wanted to see about the 3DS and new releases. Special thanks to our boys over at digthatbox.com for posting these videos on youtube.
Check out the amazing Nintendo 3DS write up over at Digthatbox.com

E3 2009 Day 0 (MS Press Conference)
Microsoft really knows how to put on a press conference. No charts, graphs, or sales figures, just game announcements, trailers and live demos.
The surviving Beatles take the stage for The Beatles Rock Band cool to see them. Exclusive track for the 360, All You Need is Love, proceeds go to charity.
Modern Warfare 2 looks amazing. It’s multi-platform of course, so not sure why they chose the MS press conference for this.
Final Fantasy 13 and Metal Gear Solid are coming to the 360. God of War is now the only PS3 exclusive that I give a shit about.
Halo 3: ODST looks just about what I expected (which is a good thing) and it releases this September with a bonus; each copy includes an invitation to the new Halo: Reach beta. Sign me up.
Alan Wake, again? And it’s not even coming out this year, which means we will see it again next E3. F.
Facebook on Xbox Live, FTW!
Project Natal, Microsoft’s motion tracking video camera system was demoed at the end. If this works, it will be revolutionary; if it doesn’t it will be the Eye Toy part 2.
Nice work slamming Nintendo for the preset waggles. Preset Waggles is my new favorite saying.
E3 2009 Day 1
9:00 am - We started off by watching the Nintendo press conference. I couldn’t have been more disappointed. The only thing that looked any good was the new Metroid co-developed by Team Ninja, which won’t be released this year.
There is a new Mario Bros. game set for the Wii that is 4-player simultaneous. There’s no hint of being able to play it online, and the graphics look like they could be on the SNES.
Also, there will be a sequel to Mario Galaxy, which looks like a 1.5 release to me, as I saw nothing new. This will not make it this year either.
11:00 am – The Sony press conference begins… after 10 minutes of the announcer saying there’s still seats available. Most of what they show is 3rd party games that are also available on the 360.
They wasted a bunch of my time talking about the PS2 and giving charts and figures that nobody cares about.
Interesting PS3 only titles: Final Fantasy 14 (online) but not till next year. God of War 3, but we knew that going in. Finally, Mod Nation, which is a surprisingly good looking Mario Kart type racer that allows you to create tracks, impressed me.
Not interesting: A motion controller that still is a controller, and another PSP SKU.
2:00 pm – At last at the exhibits!
Gouki and I got into the press area of Bethesda software and got a first look and hands on demos of Point Lookout (DLC for Fallout 3), Wet, and Rouge Warrior. Wet looks decent, Rouge Warrior’s AI seems pretty dumb at this point. It releases in Q4, so there’s time to fix it, but not much.
I got to play the new Ghostbusters game. It looks amazing, the controls are a bit touchy, but that might just be me not being used to the PS3 controller.
I also played Marvel vs. Capcom 2 using the Street Fighter 4 fight stick. Feels much like the arcade, though that was so long ago for me that I’m not sure anymore.
Notable absence: No Kentia hall this year!
5:00 pm – Where’s Jimmy?
E3 2009 Day 2
Day 2 at E3 and I’m usually more interested in finding someplace to sit down than anything else. We went to see the Modern Warfare 2 demo that had a countdown running for it, but it turned out to be nothing more than the trailer we’d seen a week ago. (I don’t understand why that’s not just up there in the mix with all the other trailers on Activision big screen.)
Speaking of the other trailers, the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen game looks amazing. Hopefully it plays as well as it looks. Hopefully we will get some hands on with this on Day 3.
- Ubisoft has the best overall booth babes (and a ton of them)
- Batman: Arkham Asylum is in every other booth.
- Where is Bioshock 2?
E3 2009 Day 3
The last day of the Expo. My feet hurt. Didn’t really see anything new. Jimmy dressed up as Akuma and got lots of attention.
Afterwards we went to the Dodgers game and watched them lose to the Phillies. Cole Hamels pitched a complete game shutout throwing less than 100 pitches. Ridiculous.
Nintendo stood it's grow again for another year!
Nintendo's press conference 2010 was something to look forward to.
With some nintendo news under rap, what can you expect for the company?
Well, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Kirby: Epic Yarn, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Metriod: Other M, Donkey Kong Country: Returns, GoldenEye 007, Kid Icarus: UpRising and Epic Mickey!
Nintendo started the key note with a demo of Zelda and finished with the NEW 3DS! The Wii is maintaining its speed with games, and with it's handheld.
I was hoping that they would talk about the Wii HD/2, but I can only dream.
The new Zelda was demoed and it was a great start. They talked about bring back classics and that's what they did! All the game showed at the conference were unique and different! From the Kirby game to the Zelda one, they stand out like the hall mark of Nintendo.
The 3DS seems a bit bigger and the top screen to. I'm wondering if that will pixalate the original games being played with the 3DS. Even so, Nintendo did not mention the Vitallity sensor... Oh well.
With majority of these game being released this hoilday season and a few next year, Nintendo plans to bank on us. SOLD!!
Check out my impressions of EA's keynote speech inside.
So Microsoft's keynote was pretty disappointing; we all know it's true. Unless you care about watching Kinect, there was very little that was interesting. So then came EA's keynote. Was it better than Microsoft? For the most part, yes.
EA opened up with a new remake of Hot Pursuit. I have to say it: I wasn't that much impressed by the demo. It's from Criterion, and it certainly looked like it; the game really did appear to have a Burnout feel to it. The graphics do look impressive, but I just can't get over the fact that the game looks more like a Burnout game than a Need for Speed game. EA boasted that the game was going back to the Need for Speed roots, but I just didn't see it in the demo.

My impressions of Nintendo's keynote inside.
Okay, so I already posted a story about the Zelda announcement that headed Nintendo's keynote. Since I already talked about that, I'll invite you jump to that article instead of me having to talk about it again. So please, feel free to go read it and then come back - but please come back, because otherwise you will miss some incredible announcements.
You back? Okay, Good.
After Skyward Sword, Nintendo immediately went on to show a trailer for Mario Sports Mix. I'm not a big fan of the Mario sports games of the past - but being on the Wii and having a mixture of sports in the same game, this actually looks pretty awesome. There was a nice mix of sports including soccer, basketball, and volleyball. And while Mario Sports Mix wasn't quite jaw-dropping, it was still a really nice announcement just the same. Mario Sports Mix will be out in 2011.
Should I skip Wii Party? If you take Mario Party and replace the Mario characters with Miis, then you've got Wii Party. I just don't get it. But oh well, I'm not going to dwell on it.
Just Dance 2...pass.
Next was a trailer for Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. The trailer looked amazing. This is classic JRPG that I've been wanting on the DS. I'm really pumped about this game - a lot more than I expected to be prior to Nintendo's keynote. I'm just...wow, this is going to be amazing. If you're a Golden Sun fan, or just a JRPG fan in general, then you have to check this game out. It will be out during the holiday season of 2010.
Goldeneye 007 Wii was the next announcement. Now, I must say: the trailer - it looked like utter crap. The visuals here were beyond disappointing, and the gameplay didn't really look like anything all that amazing. Anyone that has played a Wii first-person shooter will already know that this probably won't end up very well, but still...it's Goldeneye, so it's definitely going to be a big deal for a lot of people. It comes out during the holiday season of 2010.
Warren Spector came out to commentate on an Epic Mickey demo. At first I was pretty skeptical; the beginning of the demo looked pretty lame. But then Mickey jumped into a movie screen, and it went into a side-scrolling level themed after the Steamboat Willy cartoon - complete with black and white visuals. At that point I was interested, but I really wish that the whole game was going to be 2D platforming; the 3D areas still looked like boring garbage.
The trailer for Kirby's Epic Yarn was...well, I'm not really sure what to say about it. It's not my cup of tea - I can say that much for certain. I think that the art style is charming enough to some people, but I just wasn't feeling it. A Kirby fan might be into this; since I'm not a Kerby fan, I can't say much about this - except that it comes out in the fall of 2010.
There was a new trailer for Metroid: Other M that makes it look even better than it did last year. The action looks to be amazingly smooth and fresh. I think Metroid: Other M has a lot of potential to be amazing. Team Ninja and Nintendo together - at first I was pretty skeptical, but now that I've seen more of it in action, I think it could just blow a lot of people's minds. And the best part is the release date: August 31 of this year.
And then...and then...oh man, I think I'm going to faint! Donkey...Kong...Country...Returns! They showed off a trailer of this game, and I immediately had a nostaligic geek-out moment. I literally jumped out of my chair in excitement. The premise is that they're basically taking Donkey Kong Country and giving it the New Super Mario Brothers Wii treatment - and let me tell you something: it looks amazing! As hard as it is for me to believe, this announcement totally owned Nintendo's keynote for me hands-down. And it's coming out this year!!! I'm...*passes out*
Nintendo revealed what Project Nora really was - Kid Icarus Uprising. This is going to be a 3DS game. The trailer looked really intriguing and fun. And if the trailer gameplay is really any indication, then the 3DS is capable of some truly amazing graphics - because these looked almost like Wii graphics; I kid you not. I'm...well, this could be really good. I'm paying attention Nintendo; wow me.
The end of the keynote was the announcement of the actual Nintendo 3DS. The whole "3D without glasses" concept was a bit overplayed, and unfortunately watching the keynotes on television offer you no way to see how this will actually look. But we know that all you care about is the games, and Nintendo chose to focus on the third-party with a crapload of fantastic third-party titles in development: DJ Hero 3D, Kingdom Hearts 3DS, Saint's Row 3DS, Madden and FIFA for 3DS, Resident Evil 3DS, Batman 3DS, Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy, Ridge Racer 3DS, and...Metal Gear Solid 3DS(!!!). Nintendo wasn't telling us anything about these games besides the fact that they're in development, but that's undeniably an amazing lineup of third-party games. The only first-party that Nintendo mentioned was the aforementioned Kid Icarus Uprising and Nintendogs + Cats. If Nintendo can keep a strong focus on the third-party, than the 3DS could end up being a real winner.
So Nintendo's conference was amazing - no need to tell you that. Nintendo basically made all of the announcements that we've been speculating about for the last two or three years. Bravo Nintendo.
My impressions of Sony's E3 2010 press conference inside.
Sony, Sony, Sony...whatever would we do without you?
Okay, so I'm going to jump right into it: Killzone 3. There was a demo of Killzone 3 that literally blew my mind. I enjoyed Killzone 2 immensely, and Killzone 3 just looks so much better - amazing. Sony was also really pushing the fact that Killzone 3 would have native 3D support and native Move support. Rather or not I care about either is still up in the air, but you can't deny that it's a great incentive and great features for the people that are demanding it. Killzone 3 will be released in February of 2011.
Sony talked about a few other games that would have native 3D support, including Mortal Kombat, Sly Collection, and Gran Turismo 5. Sony is really spending a lot of energy to push the 3D support on people, and I really believe that 3D is part of the future of Sony's business strategy.
Sony talked about the Move, including the release date and pricing. Sony Move will officially be released in the US on September 19, 2010. The controllers alone will retail for $49.99 for the controller plus $29.99 for the navigator controller. There will also be a bundle including a Move-based sports game for $99.99; the hundred dollar bundle will be packed in with a PS3 for $399.99.
Sony showed off a few Move-based games, but it wasn't as much of a focus as I expected. The first game they showed was Sorcery, which looked like it could be quite an interesting premise if it's executed as well as it looked on the stage. The move controller functionality looked really good and responsive. The game had sort of a darker Harry Potter feel to it, but at the same time it really did look like it could be a lot of fun to play. Sorcery will come out in the spring of 2011.
Next up EA showed off Tiger Woods 2011 using the Move. It looks like a more accurate version of the Wii, which I guess is good if you're in the mood for that sort of thing. The thing that I noticed that I thought was a big deal was that there was a lot of lag between the swing and the game responding to it. I wasn't quite impressed by the technology here, but it's still early, and I'm sure it'll be fixed. The Move support will be released via a downloadable update in the fall of 2010.
Next Sony showed a trailer for Heroes on the Move. This game is like an amazing mash-up of Sony's best platforming properties: Sly Cooper and Bentley, Jak and Daxter, and Rathet and Clank. The trailer looks like this could be an awesome platforming experience mashing up Sony's best-known mascots. I am pretty sure - as the name seems to imply - that this game will be fully Move-optimized, although support for traditional play is apparently unknown at this point.
Next there was God of War: Ghosts of Sparta. This looks like it will be a much-improved version of Chains of Olympus - which was in itself quite a good game. I'm pretty pumped about this game for two reasons. One: because it's nice to have a PSP game I can be excited about; two: because it looks like it's pushing the PSP to its limits. I think this will be an amazing game when it comes out in fall of 2010.
*Insert break here* (I went to shower...sue me.)
I come back in time to catch Sony talking about Little Big Planet 2. As you probably know, Little Big Planet built a great foundation and then allowed the players to build most of the experience. I have a small problem with this style of game philosophy in that most of us just aren't game designers. But for those of us that are, Media Molecule is claiming that you can now create games from different genres instead of just making platforming levels. The trailer for the game looks like there is tons of creativity going into this game, and even the levels in the box appear to be varied and unique and fun.
Sony then had Electronic Arts talk about some content on a couple upcoming games that will be exclusive to the Playstation 3. Medal of Honor will come complete with a remastered, high def version of Medal of Honor Frontlines; Dead Space 2 will come with a Move-optimized version of Dead Space Extraction. Additionally Sony announced that other games like Mafia 2 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will also have Playstation 3 exclusive content.
And who would come on stage? Gabe Newell. Yes, that's right; Gabe Newell - the guy that talked all kinds of trash about the Playstation 3 a while back. He came out to announce that Portal 2 will come to the Playstation 3 on top of the previously known platforms. Then they showed a trailer for Portal 2 that I thought was amazing. I really want this game to come out. The game will come out sometime in 2011.
After that we got to see a new Final Fantasy XIV (yeah, that's the one that's online - no, that was Final Fantasy XI; this is the new one that's going to be online) trailer, and it looked amazing. I mean, it might not be The Old Republic amazing - but it will definitely be interesting to anyone that cares at all about Final Fantasy (like myself!).
Next was the new Gran Turismo 5 trailer. The graphics in this game look to be ground-breaking. I mean - wow. I think that there are points where I wouldn't know the difference between Gran Turismo 5 and real life; it's that amazing. I don't even care a bit about racing games, but this is something that has me blown away. And the best part - there's a release date finally: November 2. Yes, that's November 2 of 2010.
The next announcement was Infamous 2. I was a huge fan of the original Infamous; I thought it made the sandbox experience really fun and interesting, and to make things better it gave you powers to use while running around - and it was indeed a blast to play. But the trailer for Infamous 2....wow, this really looks like Sucker Punch is one-upping themselves here. Not only are the visuals here really great for a sandbox experience, but the trailer boasts what should be some really interesting gameplay additions - like being able to charge up melee weapons with lighting. It also looks like Infamous 2 will have a much more varied and interesting level design between the different districts. Infamous 2 will be out in 2011. (Oh yeah, and if you're interested then you can learn more; Infamous 2 is the cover story of the new Game Informer magazine.)
Last but not least...something I thought I'd never see again...something that I thought had just sort of fallen off the map: Twisted Metal. And this wasn't just a trailer (well there was a trailer, but it was just sort of uninteresting), but there was also a full-fledged multiplayer demo. The gameplay here - it looks something like Twisted Metal Black; the design has that dark and gritty feel to it. I've got to admit: I'd like to see Twisted Metal come back with the campy vibe of Twisted Metal 2, but that's not to imply that this is losing anything by being like Twisted Metal Black. In fact it looks great; it just looks...sort of like it blends in to all the other brown and black games we're seeing so much of lately. Oh well, it's Twisted Metal - and Twisted Metal is awesome. It will come out sometime in 2011.
So there you go. All the conferences are over - but the expo is just beginning. We've got people on the show floor, so keep hitting F5, because we're bringing all the best from E3 here at Gouki.
