So, instead of giving a single smegma infested crap about the upcoming E3 conference since it is generously sponsored by bastards who supported certain bills that threatened the very life of the internet.

Instead, I turn the spotlight from what is in essence, another worthless launch party, and ask instead for opinions on what you want to see from GDC and PAX.

All I care about from the next E3 the following things:

1. What's Retro's new project?Please for the love of fuck, don't let it be Zelda.
2. Is there seriously going to be another Yoshi's Island for Wii U? Please for the love of fuck, be true and in 2D.
3. What the new 3D Mario will be? Please don't be another fucking Galaxy.
4. The new Microsoft E3 Please be the usual So Bad, It's Good of the E3s.

1. What if it is, or what if Nintendo never lets us know because they're terrible about confirm/deny because apparently the 'subject to change' disclaimer is too much effort?
2. Yoshi has been relegated to the same position as Luigi: An unlockable. I really wish I could have simply played as Luigi in all the recent games. Is that too much to ask?
3. Hopefully something where you can actually go inside the castle, instead of it being the goal seeing as Princess Worthless is more or less a token now. Perhaps we can even return to the kingdom of Sarasa Land.
4. MORE KINEKET. WITH WINDOWS 8.

1. Dear lord, if Zelda of all franchises go to Retro, talk about a waste.:| Zelda, along with Mario and Pokemon, get the most attention as it is. I'm not normally one of those Nintendo fanboys that get bitter about not seeing more of their childhood franchises that they can't get over a decade ago, but I would rather Retro work on Star Fox or even another Donkey Kong than a franchise that far from needs it.

2. Well there's Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and in NSMBU,you can choose to be him.

3. So instead of Princess Worthless, we get Ms. "Hi I'm Daisy"?:iconwthplz:

4. THE BEST E3!:la:

But Retro did do Donkey Kong and apparently it was great. What if Retro were to do F-Zero or another series like that?

2. Not by choice and only if you've got another player. I'm talking out of the box choice. It was possible in Super Mario Brothers 2 (Not the USA version, the real 2), it should be that easy.

3. Not exactly. Not at least until world 5. And she could reprise her vow of silence. :dummy:

I'll watch all of them, just to see, occasionally there'll be something amazing at each of them and they're all relevant to my interests. Obviously I can't go to any, but that's besides the point. I am however sick of each convention allowing any old random bimbo to come in and talk about awesome games that they have no fucking idea about and are simply there for the male viewers to ogle over and be like AMG, GIRLS AND GAMES, MY TWO FAP-PRODUCTS. End of rant :3

I've kinda got used to it with most aspects of gaming, just at cons I'm like "just get someone who knows what they're talking about". Most games depict female characters as sticks with a huge ass and another ass on their chest, who in reality wouldn't be able to walk straight without falling over xD somewhat ironically they tend to be most common in japanese-developed games. :facepalm:

Yeah I know, I just watched my boyfriend replaying DMC4 and it made me roll my eyes how much more attention they put into making the boobs jiggle in scenes rather than improving the lip sync :P. It is present in western games too ofc just Japan seems to be a bit more crazy about it, not to mention the common very over-the-top gameplay styles :3.

I like E3 for the demos and the trailers.

I like PAX and the other cons for the indie material and lifestyle.
I wish to do PAX East and the PAX in Seattle(right spot?) in the same year.

East is no problem, Boston is a mere half day ride away.
It's in March and I think there is still time to get tickets.

I used to do the GamesDay Baltimore every year for a while and then got out of the war gaming.

For developers to stop thinking Uncharted and Call of Duty are how to make games and instead focus on projects like Dishonored, Spec Ops: The Line, and The Walking Dead.

As for PAX... I just wish I could visit.

You could replace the zombies in Walking Dead with any other monster and it would still be as great a game. It has more in common with Heavy Rain than it does with L4D, so I'd do your research before you write it off.

The closest thing to "gameplay" that Walking Dead has are Quick-Time Events. Hence, interactive cutscene.

...well, it's more of a game than Call of Duty 4's singleplayer. It's got better controls, a coherent story, narrative specific mechanics, and dialogue that doesn't feel stilted. And the progress of the campaign makes sense. And there's genuine emotion brought about by it. And it makes you think...

I won't deny that it irks me that everyone praises TWD for things Spec Ops did very well on its own (and that a majority of reviewers seemed to treat as non-important in Spec Ops' case), but gaming journalists... are gaming journalists.

And as far as I'm considered, a game is what you want it to be. Some consider EVE online a capitalism simulator (I personally believe you could say the same of Runescape, back in the day), others consider it a gritty realistic sci-fi MMO. It's all a matter of perspective

Can you at least kill that stupid girl? And not be punished for it?

I REALLY hate her hat and just want to break her leg and use her as zombie bait while I run away to safety. See, already I made a more honest and realistic zombie survival game.

I realize it didn't come out on a Nintendo console, so it likely never came on your radar. Let me put it this way: It's probably going to resurrect the Adventure game genre as a whole.

And dude... how can you say 'yet another zombie game' without even knowing what L4D is? That's like saying "there are too many shooters" because of less entries in the Command and Conquer series -- know what you're talking about before generalizing. Just because it's the internet doesn't mean you should just say whatever comes to mind. And Heavy Rain was kind of a big deal for anyone with a PS3, or who cared about narrative in games in general.

I advise you use Google -- it can get you information on these games you have never heard of.

Urgh, the worst part is that the GDC isn't even meant as a promotional event. It's a conference where knowledge is shared between developers. At best, the only reveals we are supposed to see is whatever people have submitted to the IGF contests. :stare:
