    I was just watching the Microsoft spotlight on G4! The Natal project looked interesting, though it really seems aimed at casual gamers. I suspect that it'll join a lot of WiiFits collecting dust in the corners of households...

    I was excited when they started doing the paint demo, but that swiftly died as it didn't really seem like you could get any sort of fine-control at all.

    Milo was frickin' cool, though.

    Not really impressed. I'm not so sure Natal is going to be more than a gimmick actually. The motion sensors seemed a bit unresponsive (check out how shaky it was when the guy was showing the bottom of his avatar's shoe; it looked like the avatar had a seizure). I did laugh when Kojima said "Who said anything about Solid Snake?". Game-wise, not a bad line-up but I wished they could have spent more time on those than movie features. Alan Wake looked great.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the other two conferences. I sincerely hope it focuses more on games. That said, based on what happened in Nintendo's 2008 presentation ("You really like that throttle, don't-cha Reggie?"), I have higher hopes for Sony's this year than Nintendo's

    Meh. The natal thing didn't look revolutionary at all. That's exactly what the PS eye claimed to do, and we all saw how well that went.

    Damn microsoft for forcing konami to jam a whole mgs game onto a DVD (Or five, in which case I'd be glad).

    But then again I loathe Microsoft on the console front with all my heart, so anything they will ever do will suck in my eyes.

    The Nintendo conference is going on right now.

    Everything was meh until Golden Sun DS was announced. Woo hoo! After that, everything is pretty meh again I wish they could stop boasting their sales number and discuss games a little (see: a lot) more.

    EDIT: DS is looking to have a substantially better line-up than the Wii. I am impressed!

    Judging from level of the other stuff they demonstrated I think it is capable of much more on the art thing, I think they were just doing it quickly to give a vague idea, after all, look at ubisoft's presentation, mostly just talking, a guy painting a picture of an elephant would get dull if he was spending ages going into fine detail and stuff.

    I think Nintendo saved itself from being a repeat of 2008, it's unfortunate that all the weight was at the end.

    I thought Sony's take on motion control is the most practical for gaming, combines the full body aspect of natal with the camera (I think) with a more advanced wiimote, the archery was awesome.

    I feel like the only one in the world when I say I thought the first was absolutely boring and repetitive, dressed up with nice production values. Combat was just... god it was a mess.

    Though I was tripping balls at the sight of the trailer. Gorgeous for sure.

    AC combat was pretty good I thought, none of that health bars or set health nonsense and good involvement of parrying and stuff.

    Boring...I disagree to a certain point....repetitive..hells to the yes....console games mate. To me exploring each city and fucking around with guardsmen was pure joy. Working up strategies to taking down a group of aggressors was a thrill to do....and when you pull off the perfect escape without a hitch the rush you feel as your waiting in a haystack or someone's roof garden is exhilarating. Still if the controls were more like Mirror's edge rather than just have the player hold down the same 2 buttons , I believe the truly skilled and quick thinking people would be set apart from the crowds of button mashers and would have made for a much more enjoyable game experience.

    I agree with you on this one. By the way, am I the only one that thought Assassins Creed was very well written? I mean god knows the storyline wasn't revolutionary, but I thought a lot of the dialogue and philosophical questions brought up in the game, especially revolving around moral ambiguity and significance of actions over just actions themselves, were very interesting. I just liked how they didn't skimp on the intellectual side of the game because god knows when the game revolves around assassins they could have just made it into another macho man's-man kinda game

    Nintendo is winning it for me, actually. They did a damn nice job making up for last year's showing.

    In all honesty, I was killing my a button hoping to skip all that. The main actor's hilariously American accent prevented me from taking any of the dialogue seriously.

    Is it just me or did Sony completely rape MS with their press conference?

    The Last Guardian looks absolutely incredible. Sony's controller, while not as impressive from a purely technical perspective, seems much more usable for actual games. Final Fantasy FOURTEEN!? Uncharted 2, new Rockstar IP, a MGS game Kojima actually wants to make and is actually involved in, and then all the other stuff that was completely expected - like GoW3 being stunning.

    I'm really excited for Alan Wake, but that's it. I am a big a Halo fan as anyone, but enough already.

    As for non-exclusives, AC looks ace. If only they fix the issues from the first one... instant classic. Modern Warfare will deliver more of the same, only bigger and better.

    I rather thought Sony outdid Nintendo, and overshadowed MS. Those games looked gorgeous and their Eyetoy prototypes fed a frenzy of possible game uses in my mind; I couldn't really think of any practical gaming uses for Microsoft's Natal aside from casual gaming interactions.

    And...PSP Go! Frickin' adorable, that thing.

    Plus...well, I know I'm supposed to judge these presentations more on their games, technology, and maybe industry numbers, but I thought Sony's presentation came off more naturally charismatic than Microsoft's or Nintendo's. I admit, I'm a sucker for a good speaker, and watching that engineer playing with the Eyetoys, flawed coordination and all (his hand/eye coordination, not the prototype tracking), made me relate to the experience.

    well they said that machine translated all of the different languages and accents but yeah I see your point. It did get old on repeated playthroughs when I just wanted to assassinate someone. Even more frustrating was in earlier missions when you had to manually travel to the city from Masyaf and I was like "I just want to stab someone in the neck, why do I have to wait 10 minutes to do it?". Still, good game in my opinion

    gotta agree with you there Jason, no matter how hard I tried or how "pretty" it was I just could not get into Assassins creed. It just got incredibly boring and I felt like I was sifting through piles of tedious manure to get to the good stuff.

    Assassins Creed for me too was very repetitive. However the storyline is awesome imo. And being a lover of all things medieval it just has me hooked (even still now). I love planning how I am going to take down the targets all stealth like, but that could just be me. The combat system is swish and I cannot personally wait for the second installment.
