Ok, so I have to vent. I made it down to the show yesterday morning. I've been to every stinking E3 since they began, and this has been, by far, the most packed (people-wise) and least inspired (game-wise) show yet.
It's sad when the most interesting thing in the show is the fact the Jean Reno's likeness and voice is being used for the player-character in Onimusha 3. Everything in Nintendo's booth was to be expected; Sony had everything that could be expected, and little that seemed to be sleeper-hit material. MS had a big area and making a big deal of EA finally going Live with their titles. My previous employers have done a fine job at ensuring that Capcom's Nightmare Before Christmas game looks beautiful and plays terrible. Yay!
Xbox Republic Commando was out on the floor. Looks fun, fun, fun, but it's Rainbow Six in Star Wars clothes. Nothing wrong with that, but just typical of the whole industry at the moment... derivative.
Oh, and OCB, get an SP, but plan on getting a DS later, which is backwards compatible, is backlit, and will have a nifty Metroid Prime game.
