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.

The "Fall of Earth" is great and all, but it will be super disappointing if you aren't travelling around the galaxy.

Another game that will require a code...
It looks like if you buy a used copy you will have to drop another $10 to play online. I get that they want you to buy a new copy because they don't make anything off the used ones, but it still seems like a dick move. The list of games in this category will keep growing, and I'm sure companies like Gamestop will eventually balance it by fixing their own prices. What do you think? Are we getting screwed? Should we suck it up and pay the extra $? Do you only buy used? Or do you even play online? You know what to do, Don't be a Jimmy.
For those that still love Mass Effect 3 ending and all will be happy to know that the newest DLC titles Leviathan is coming very soon.
According to Bioware the newest Mass Effect 3 DLC Leviathan will be dropping August 28, 2012. The new single player mission follows Shepard as he/she attempts to hunt down the Leviathan, “a mysterious being rumored to be powerful enough to destroy a Reaper.”
Priced at a whopping $9.99 PSN/ 800 MSP.
Are you looking forward to more Single Player content in Mass Effect 3? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Beginning Feb. 15, Xbox LIVE will deliver four back-to-back releases of the best downloadable games, with one new title a week.
Microsoft always has a great lineup of Xbox Live Arcade titles every E3 for their "Summer of Arcade". It looks like they're trying to do the same thing with CES and "House Party". There are some interesting titles here; an Alan Wake sequel delivered as a XBLA game instead of a full retail product. I liked the original despite poking fun at it's oft-delayed status. There's also Ubisoft's "I Am Alive" which originally was to be a full retail product from what I can tell. They seemed to have reduced the scope to allow it to actualy get released. GoukiJones got to play Warp at PAX, he probably doesn't remember, but it's a clever title that allows your character to warp from place to place, including inside people to make them... uh... explode. Nexuiz is the lone newcommer here, so I'm interested to see what that is about.
Here's the lineup from Major Nelson:
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (Microsoft Studios): In this brand-new stand-alone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch. A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations, combined with a fun and challenging new game mode, make this a must for Alan Wake veterans, and the perfect jumping-on point for new players. Can you survive until sunrise?
I Am Alive (Ubisoft): One year after a worldwide cataclysmic event has wiped out most of human civilization, a man struggles for survival. Faced with an insecure, decaying and hazardous world, he scours a desolated city, searching for his long-lost wife and daughter. Survive the suffocating, murky streets covered in dust. Climb the teetering remains of last-standing skyscrapers to reach breathable air and find untouched resources. Explore the crumbling ruins of a once-thriving metropolis. Discover a changed human condition, punctuated by distrustful survivors, dangerous armed gangs and victims in need.
Nexuiz (THQ): For centuries, the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but, because of their seething disgust of each other, still pit warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. These episodes of lethal combat are broadcast throughout the galaxy as entertainment — a spectacle known as The Nexuiz Competition — an arena-based first-person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and the laws of physics while dominating opponents in ever-changing hostile environments.
Warp (EA): “Warp” is a puzzle-based stealth action game where you play as Zero, a lovable-yet-lethal orange alien with a big score to settle! Captured by the villainous Commander and imprisoned in his underwater facility, Zero must plan his ultimate escape using his arsenal of alien abilities — warp, frag, echo, swap and launch.
Fuse, an alien energy source, is stolen. Overstrike 9 is sent in to retrieve it. Join up to 3 friends as you deploy lethal teamwork and experimental weapons to recover it.

After breaking up with Activision, former Infinity Ward devs created Respawn entertainment. Here's a sneak peek at their first game.
This was probably going to be a surprise for Monday (June 10) during either the MS or EA press conference, but the digital version of the magazine got out a few days early.
Here's what the lucky subscriber picked out of the article:
- Xbox One, PC
- Xbox 360 version developed by someone else
- Planned to target current gen, but realized that they couldn't run it
- Started to look into next gen and the answer they got from Microsoft intrigued them
- They said they needed to focus on fewer hardware. In the future they are open to more. They don't specify if it would be this project or another.
- Plan to use Microsoft's Cloud for dedicated servers and physics and AI calculations
- Campaign Multiplayer, "traditional" multiplayer mode, and a "One-Player Mode".
- Spring 2014 Release Date
- There are a good amount of screens. In my opinion it visually looks pretty nice.
- First person shooter
- "Mech" and ground combat
- "Mech's" are called Titans.
- They want these Titans to feel fast. They can dodge etc.
- If you don't want to pilot the Titan you can have it follow you, killing people as it goes along.
- Player characters are called Pilots (male and female)
- They are extremely agile. Can run on walls, multiple jumps.
- They can take down Titans. Jumping on them and shooting the "brain".
- You need to be cunning as a pilot. "Hit and fade" tactics is the term the game director uses.
- Pilots come equipped with a variety of weapons. Pistol, Assault Rifle, Anti-Titan Rocket Launcher, data knife used to hack AI characters into joining you.
- There are AI enemies on the maps.
- You survive longer than in COD. Making it more welcoming to newcomers.
- Source Engine. Building new engine = too much time.
- Source gives them 60 fps
- Modified Source - "Rewriting major portions of it".
- Article talks about the process of forming the team, being fired, prototyping ideas etc. I recommend reading it.
- Going for a District 9 or Blade Runner vibe.
- Integrate memorable single player moments into a multiplayer game.
- Storytelling style will be more Left 4 Dead.
- Humans segregated between Earth and frontier planets. Corporation trying to take the resources of these frontier people.
- Progression system. No details yet
Free DLC Pack to Provide Additional Cinematic Scenes to the Ending of Mass Effect 3 this Summer
The fans have won and EA/BioWare will be providing some extended ending scenes later this year. Will it be too little, too late? I can't think about putting ME3 back in the system tray this summer, I'm not even going to remember much of what the ending was about by then. Honestly, they could've solved this problem with 3 pre-rendered youtube video explaining the three different endings a little better.
According to the press release EA will be providing:
"Through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will give fans seeking further clarity to the ending of Mass Effect 3 deeper insights into how their personal journey concludes. Coming this summer, the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut will be available for download on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC for no extra charge"
Hey, at least it's free!
