The Microsoft E3 2011 Press conference just wrapped up. How did it go? Here's what you need to know.
Another year, another Microsoft E3 press event. No Cirque du Soleil nonsense this year, just a straight up media briefing with tons of trailers and demos.
Here's a quick run down of what I saw.
- Gears of War 3 campaign looks as good as you'd expect. Plus Ice-T was on stage wearing a kick ass GoW3 shirt.
- Mass Effect 3's Kinect enabled voice commands. Garrus, move up. Liara, use Singularity. Awesomesauce. Probably not enough to make me want a kinect, but cool.
- Kinect easy avatar creation with fun labs (out now!) I've been waiting for this since avatars came out, I have a xbl vision camera gathering dust.
- Starting off with MW3 and Tomb Raider was a bit weird. I don't know why the console makers feel the need to show off multi-platform games at their press conferences.
- Halo: CE Anniversary, an HD remake of the first Halo game. Looks cool, but also looks like it's going to be a full price game. #ripoff
- You're showing off Forza 4 with a Top Gear license... Where's the Stig? (For that matter where were any of the Top Gear crew?)
- Kinect football running in place.
- Two words: FIST BUMP!
- Fable the Journey Kinect game, waving your arms around like a Jimmy. I'd rather not.
An honorable mention must be made to the Halo 4 teaser and Tomb Raider for both being Fall 2012 games, meaning we'll see them at next year's E3 as well. #toosoon

Gouki.com was hand-on with Street Fighter 3 online Edition. Live gameplay from the E3 2011 show floor. My official take on the game after just playing it. Also the trailer if you have seen it. Third Strike is back bahby!
That's right I officially played the game. First watch the video of the gameplay from the show floor. You will get to see a Jimmy working his way through the different screen settings. Widescreen, classic arcade cab, HD, SD. Pay attention and you will notice the different. This is exclusive access for you to E3. See it from the eyes of a PWNr. Me.
Here's my official take.
Official trailer for SF3O - Get hype!
Sega released a new trailer of Sonic Generations showing off a pretty memorable level, City Escape.
The music is that Nanana song from My Chemical Romance but I'm hoping it's just a promotional song and the traditional music from Sonic Adventure 2 stays intact. Plus at the last 3 seconds, you see Sonic flying through Spagonia, a level from Sonic Unleashed. But if there's any level from Unleashed I want, it would be Apotos.
And here's an interview with one of the devs that I wanted to post a while ago.

Playstation blog will show the entire E3 Playstation Press conference AND gives you a chance to win a 3-day E3 Pass.
E3 is near and Sony has big news. Starting June 6th, for the first time the entire Sony press conference will be live streamed on the Playstation Blog! On top of that, they will have a special booth with developers with interviews, demos and a chat system for us to ask questions as well.
Also there is a chance to win a 3-day pass it E3! Sony has over one hundred of these passes and to win it you simply take a short online quiz found here- https://playstation.wufoo.com/forms/e3-event-registration-form/ .A bit weird since millions of people will try this and the "quiz" consists of a "Give us a reason why you should win a ticket" answer and a few questions but it's worth a shot.
UPDATE from Playstation Blog:
"UPDATE: We’ve got several hundred more entries than we’ve got spots open, so we’re cutting off the entries now. We’ll grade the papers over the next few days and contact winners by email. Thanks for entering!"
I'm content with watching cool new stuff Sony will unveil live and people answering questions from some of us at home. Will any of you be tuning in?
I got a chance to play Resistance 3 at Sony's E3 2011 booth, here's my take.
FnJimmy and I were waiting in line to play some Resistance 3 at Sony's booth. We thought we were going to play some multiplayer. Turns out we were playing the campaign even though they had the TVs set up side by side like the do for all their MP demos (like Uncharted and Starhawk). The Sony rep points me at the second TV in the row, lucky me, I got the one with 3D enabled. I put the goggles on over my glasses, not particularly comfortable, but not too bad until I also try to put the headphones on, now I've got three things on my ears.
Anyway the game controlled and felt like I expected, complete with the Sony R1 instead of trigger to fire that I've come to hate and expect in every exclusive PS3 game. (Seriously, WTF?)
I don't know if something was wrong with the 3D goggles (low battery?) or if all the E3 lights and flashes were interfering with the signal, but I had a bunch of cross talk, to the point that I had two reticules to aim through which obviously made targeting a bit of a trick. I wasn't sure if I should aim at the left, right, or split the difference. By the end of the demo... well I didn't stay for the end of the demo, I just quit after about 5 minutes as I did not want to spend the rest of my day at E3 with a splitting (see what I did there) headache.
Resistance seems like an above-average FPS in a market flooded with them, so I'm not super hyped about it (especially given the PS3 exclusive controls, I like my FPS on the 360). I'm totally not excited for 3D to come to my house any time soon.
Resistance 3 ships September 6, 2011 for the PS3.
A top seven list for most anticipated of E3 2011!
What up Jimmies? No one likes to read, so here's my top seven most anticipated games of E3!
Other games that didn't make the cut;
Alan Wake 2(?)
Soul Calibur 5
Ghost Recon: Furture Soldier
Ninja Gaiden 3
and more!!! The best year to be a gamer!!!

FnJimmy and BatRastered go head to head on UC3 multiplayer at the Sony booth at E3 2011.
FnJimmy and I were walking through the Sony booth when we noticed they were giving away UC3 t-shirts for playing the multiplayer demo. We got our chance, but they ran out of shirts before we were done. Instead, they gave us some DLC codes for the game! Stay tuned to G, as we'll be giving those out when Uncharted 3 is released. Mystery skin weapon #4 FTW!
Here's some Jimmy (who, I swear, is not actually FnJimmy) playing just like FnJimmy.
FnJimmy says the controls were "loose". I guess. I thought they worked, okay. My problem, like all PS3 games was the layout. R1 is not a trigger... FFS! The controller diagram posted under the TV said down on the d-pad to reload... WTF? I never reloaded manually, just let it happen when I ran out.
Here's FnJimmy's official take:
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be available exclusively for the Playstation 3 on November 1, 2011.

FnJimmy gets a demo with ITSP and Michel Gagne in the Microsoft booth at E3 2011.
If you like Metroid-vania style gaming, but don't like the platform jumping aspect of it, I've got a game for you. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet takes the single world, upgrade yourself to reach new areas and back track to explore old areas in further detail concept and applies it to a spaceship flying around this world. With a Limbo-esque art style and an arcade price tag, this one is looking like a winner.
FnJimmy got some hands on time with the game and, right in front of designer Michel Gagne, proceeded to crash it. Unfortunately we weren't filming when that happened. :( Here's FnJimmy's offical take to soften the blow.
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be released exclusively for the XBOX Live Arcade on August 3, 2011 for 1200 MSP.

Exclusive: I spent about an hour hanging out with the HalfBrick crew at E3. I ate a lot of their sandwiches and played 3 of their newest games. Fruit Ninja PC, Kinect Fruit Ninja and Machine Gun Jetpack. E3 2011.
This is what Fruit Ninja for PC looks like. (Gouki logo not included.)
This is going to be huge on Facebook. The leader board resets weekly so Jimmys is gonna be passing out some 2:00 in the mornings on a Sunday trying to catch Duncan Curtis. That guy in first place, I played him. Cheatin'! God mode.
The game is Fruit Ninja, fruit flies up into the air and you cut it with your mouse. It's simple, it's fun, it should addict with no problem.Read full story...
This is a little teaser for Halo 4
Now there is not much here in terms of story, but im sure this will have all the halo fans drooling. Now me personally, I'm not a big halo fan, but i know that there are millions out there. So let us know what you think of the trailer and don't be a jimmy!
