    E3 thoughts.

    So what are your thoughts of this years event people?


    I have to say I think Microsoft had the better showing. Not really sure what to think of some of the up coming games overall though!

    Anyone really impressed with anything?

    I honestly think Sony showing was better than MS.
    Forza looks amazing though.

    Nothing really. Everything looked lovely but nothing I'm excited about at all.

    Must admit I think I'm turning in to a uv clone as I seem to prefer more of the Indy stuff lately. Well that's if I can ever got on one of the consoles as my wee one has discovered plants and bloody zombies.......1 & 2!

    Xbox One X was the most significant thing this year I guess. Shite name but price not bad for what you get. Not sure its worth it if you already have an xbox I dont think. (Unless your desperate for 4k - I dont think even with the spec it has everything is going to run well @ 4k)
    Forza looked pretty - im sure Ill get it but I dunno... Other than looking priddy (and dynamic weather which fast becoming the norm for a racer) im curious to see what is gonna be different. Hopefully it will have some competition from sonys GT (Which I will probably also buy).
    I did find myself looking at most of the games thinking meh tho. Not that there was anything wrong with them - most looked pretty but there just seems to be mothing that isnt same old same old. (And that includes FM7 and GT)
    Maybe its just me though.
    Think possibly im the same way wrt to indies - they seem to try way harder than the big studios to break the mould. Like monty python when that works its great and when it doesnt it sucks. Course I guess they have to - hard to compete with big studios like Ubi and such that just throw money at products. Alas this might produce shiny but not necessarily better IMHO.
    Think the game im most looking forward to so far this year is Nex Machina - and thats out next week \o/. I see however housemarque have been busy and have yet another game coming out august too. Less my kinda game but I might pick it up anyway.

    I think Nintendo were best and they didn't even have a proper showing

    I'm done with serious forza, love arcade forza though. Unsurprisingly with you there is a couple of games I've never heard of, so off I go to check them out.

    I think it's been a pretty good e3 so far. Thought MS just shaded it for a change, with FM7, Ashen, Ori and Anthem particular highlights. XB1X looks a bit of a brute particularly knowing that it has 30% headroom on the GPU when running FM7 in 4K @ 60fps. Obviously the big battle from my point of view is FM7 v GTS but I think Project CARS 2 will win that battle! Looks almost as good as those two but with many more features than both put together. I loved the look of the new Metro and Nintendo had a strong showing with Odyssey throwing it's hat (pun intended) in the ring for GOTY alongside Zelda. Was excited to see the new Beyond Good & Evil from Ubi. Lots to look forward to.
