E3 2010 – What do you want to see? Double R’s Thoughts

Hey kiddo’s, it’s that time of year again. The time where our geeky selves get a taste of what’s on the way in the gaming world. The time where we get all giddy and squeal over cool trailers and the possibility of good games and stuff that should hopefully come out soon. Or get disappointed by it….Wii Music anyone? Ok, sorry Nintendo, that was cheap of me….but seriously….Wii Music?!? WTF were yall thinkin?!? You guys made up for it with Mario Galaxy 2 though, I’m lovin it 🙂 And on the honest side, it’s rare that I get disappointed by something I was blown away by at an E3. Now let’s see, what do I hope is gonna make a showing? Or not. I’m gonna stick to the big 3 on this. Off the domepiece 🙂

Microsoft
+ Halo Reach baby! Sure, multiplayer is cool for cats that are into it, but I wanna see some of that campaign. Since it’s supposed to be out in the fall, I don’t think an awesome trailer is outta the question.
+ Gears of War 3. This ain’t due till April of next year, but give us a taste MS. For realz.
+ Fable III. Yeah, I know I gotta get on part 2 and finish that jawn. But the possibilities of being a king and affecting the world around you, depending on your rule style? Should be interesting.
– Project Natal. Yeah, we’ve went over the cool possibilities of this, so far, unnamed, contraption. But I’m really not interested. After being burned by the Wii, I just don’t give a damn about motion control stuff too much. Besides, I don’t have the space to jump around my room just to do something a button press can accomplish…..Make me eat my words MS.

Sony
+ The Last Guardian. We’ve put up trailers and all that good stuff….just don’t know when it’s due. I’m praying for a fall release, c’mon Sony. Make it happen!…Or take your time till it’s right, I don’t want a broken game LOL.
+ Killzone 3. This just got announced. Won’t drop till next year, but I loved 2. It has it’s flaws though. Hopefully 3 is a smoother experience.
+ A new Jak & Daxter. This is just outta thin air, not even a hint if it’s being made, but those games were awesome on the PS2. The guys behind the awesome Uncharted games made them, so c’mon. Take what you learned there, and apply it here, should be good.
– Playstation Move. Like the Wii, but supposed to be better. See above. I know you guys want some of that soccer mom/senior citizen money that Nintendo gets, but stick to what you’re good at. Motion controls?…..zzzzzzz

Nintendo
+ New Zelda. Show me something that’s gonna excite me. I know I’m in the minority here, but the 3d Zelda’s just don’t do it for me….and Twilight Princess? Puts me to sleep man. I’m hoping for something awesome.
+ New console. No I don’t want a new Microsoft or Sony system yet. But Nintendo? Just gimme something that smooths out jaggies and displays in HD. Mario Galaxy 2 looks great, but it can look AMAZING. And make sure it’s cheap too!
– Vitality sensor? Add that to the list of peripherals I don’t care about. Who knows. Maybe they’ll do something cool with it *snicker*

3rd Party Stuff
+ Dead Space 2. I loved the first game. It looked gorgeous, sounded incredible, and really brought the creeps.
+ New Silent Hill. Konami announced a part 2 reboot. I guess sort of like they did with the last game. Which I thought kinda sucked…but this one’s in another developer’s hands. I’m hoping for the best.
+ Rock Band 3. I used to be nuts about the music genre. But the endless Guitar Heros and band specific games just made it boring. Maybe Harmonix will give us something to be excited about again….and I can dust off my plastic guitars 🙂

When is Hard Mode too Hard?

I could insert some silly peen joke here –  this is a gamer blog afterall it goes with the “I don’t get laid ever I live in a basement who are people what is a social life who has conversations lord of the rings star trek O M G” way of things – but I won’t. I’m just not capable of that kind of humor this morning.

So my fellow nerdlings there’s a couple of things in my life, much as I’m sure you realize in your own, that do not change but suck and sucks in a big way. Like this!!!

They are as follows..

1. Most Family is fucking insane.
2. Family are really fucking insane.
3. Especially in-laws. Ones that contribute to the ruin and demise of all that was once good in me.
4. That I’m not moving to Austin in the foreseeable future.  Fuck in-laws.
5. Everyone hates their jobs.
6. People who smack their gum and then pop it fucking suck.
7. Mario and Zelda Water boards are like going on a waterboarding holiday in Cuba
8. Some Hard Modes are too damn hard.

Lets take for example WARCRAFT…3. Anyone who knows me would shake their head right now at my … because they would be expecting that I’m playing World of Warcraft. And they should because CATA IS ON THE HORIZON AND THE GOBLINS AND WORGEN ARE SO OMG. But i’m not! See! Progress! Hennyways I re-installed Warcraft 3 yesterday, looked up cheat codes and I was a-w-a-y right?

WRONG.

Say hello to my little friend called HARD MODE. Hello hard mode. Fuck you. See that list up there? I hate you almost as much as I hate my soon to be in-laws who contribute not only to my continual ever increasing pile of smeg but, they are by and large the reason for #4, and hell I’ll just blame them for #5 too even though I don’t truly hate my job.  So..there’s a lot of hate going round and Mr. Hard Mode you’re up there. I got completely pummeled.  It was almost just like my fun times in Starcraft multiplayer where I give up one hour of my life so, some 12 year old neckbeard can actually feel like he’s superior at something instead of the nothingness that is their life.
I wont explain why I lost, mostly because I don’t have an answer and if I did wouldn’t I have done it right?  There is one simple solution. Switch to normal. Problem is…see…I’m not normal. In fact quite abnormal. And you’re nodding. I can see it through the computer screen.  See. This is me.

Anyhow, this was my weekend: Staring down hard modes that I normally never do because I wanted to be extra sadistic to myself this weekend. How about you? Are you normal, or hard mode?
