Some random thoughts picked up from around teh intarweb:
- Bigger thirxty harddrive. Possibly 100gb?
- Will we see a price and release date for the PS3?
- WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
- Duke Nukem Forever will be playable (Hah!)

Predictions? Guesses? One fifth guessing?

I predict this thread will be as pointless as the rest, and the topic completely inconsequential before the first page is even filled.

You mean more 40 man raid dungeons that only 0.01% of all WoW players will ever see, and maybe half that will be able to beat?

Well, the conference doesn't start until tomorrow, but I'm hoping we see a new Indiana Jones game. Also, Sega seems to have announced two new Monkey Ball games. One is for the current lineup, and it looks like the other is going to be a launch title for the Wii. You'll be able to make the ball jump with an upward flick on the controller. Fuck yeah!

a) 40 man raid dungeons are perfectly fine when you know 39 other people. Get more friends*

b) the extension promises more leveling, and a couple of non-raid dungeons.

c) I don't even care for wow, fuck it and its 40 man raids. At least until I find 39 friends.

Here's a good list to get you started on finding out what you don't care about this year.

Mmmmm, OKAMI. Lego Star Wars II, delicious! Twilight Princess, intriguing! Also looks like there will be a Metal Slug collection for the PSP.

Also, to help Jeet's sword fetish, Red Steel for the Wii apparently lets you use a katana. Could be fun.

Hmm, I just gave my predictions in the other thread.   SSony's press conference is today.  I assume they'll pretend they invented online gaming with whatever Live-killer they show.   Then they'll show videos of games that they claim are in-game.  Nintendo will win the show with demos of the funky controller.  360x will have a shitload of games that will make the console worth owning by the end of 2006.  The Phantom will not appear.  

Meet back here in 6 hours to discuss the Sony press conference.

After putting in over 75 hours in Oblivion after getting 100% in GTA:SA I may have burned myself out of games for a bit.

Probably your best bet on that will be G4's coverage, though it tends to be spotty. Also, I'm sure you can get your fix from Penny Arcade starting Wednesday. I'm sure someone will stream some stuff over from Qt3 as well. I wonder if we'll see any good video podcasts out of the show floor, since that seems to be all the rage these days.

Just a few more months of running through the same dugeon, over and over and over and over again! Just so you can run through AQ40 over and over and over and over again. FUN.

You know Squeaky, if you actually stuck with a character long enough to get him to level 60 you might not feel the same way. It's true it's hard getting the people together or getting into a guild that does this stuff, but once you do get in it's fun and it becomes easier to move around. Also with the perpetual overall increase in gear more and more people are getting access to places like Molten Core. I know you've got some relatively high level warlock, stick with him, get him decked out in blues and then sign up at a guild's website that is still in MC, don't expect to jump to a BWL or AQ guild. Warlocks are almost always in demand and very few guilds have so many that they simply won't consider another. Also warlock gear drops all the god damn time in MC, guilds get tired of sharding it and will be happy to hand it over to a new guy, almost as much as they like getting a new druid in the guild.

Well, there's always the chance that there will be a few surprises. That list is likely not nearly comprehensive.

...after getting 100% in GTA:SA I may have burned myself out of games for a bit.

I thought that too, but Burnout: Revenge got me back into the swing of things. I'm also playing five minutes of MGS3 every so often so I can watch 20 minutes of FMV. Is it just me, or have game designers started to over-feature their way out of a good thing? Let me go through the game without healing myself or eating, for crying out loud.

If he doesn't like running through the dungeons over and over I can see why he's not level 60. MMOGs are entirely like that, even if sometimes the locations and the names of the monsters change.

I only run each dungeon once a week, rotating between MC, BWL, ZG, and AQ20, and then I also run the non-raid dungeons doing quests I've never finished.  There are like 7 dungeons I play regularly.  The only one I have completely finished is MC.  There are still bosses in the other three I haven't defeated.

No. I have no desire to run the same dungeon over and over again. I've also completely abandoned my warlock. I also cannot dedicate (lets say) 3 to 4 hours of playing a game at a time (or however long it takes to run through a dungeon). Also, with my schedule the way it is, the only times I ever get to play the game is between 1am and 2 pm, there isn't much activity going on during those times. I also have no desire to join a guild at all.

UT2k7, though....really, what's the point?

Pac-Man is just eating dots, engery dots and ghosts, over and over and over and over again. It's the gameplay that's fun and keeps them coming back. More power to them I say if they can enjoy it. Shit, I palyed TFC almost daily for a year before I got bored so I can understand it.

Oooh, thanks for the list.  That Wii Super Monkeybone sounds great.  And the more I hear about Wii games, the more I think it will be the perfect console for non-gamers.  Kids, my wife, parents.  Anyone that looks at a controller with a huh? will probablly have better luck with the Wii controller once they start playing *


*If everything that's been said is close to true.

On the PC I'm interested in Bioshock, CGM had a preview that went into the story a little, and it remnded me of Fallout under water.  I'm a sucker for post-apocolyptal.  The screenshots for the next UT look cool, lots of urban type stuff, so I'd like to hear more about that.

Is there a site you can go to, to keep abreast of the situations as they develop? Hourly updates on news, whats hot and not, illicit camcorded freshly-ripped videos of behind-the-schenes footage?

Gamespot is pretty good about this.  Last year they updated every 5 minutes with news, screenshots and videos.  I downloaded about 2 gig of press conferences and videos from them last year.

In other words, unless you're planning on out-Battlefield 2ing Battlefield 2, I'm genuinely not interested.

Yeah, I mean, most games can be devolved into repitious behavior.  Madden is just endless passing and running.  You play on identical green football fields every time.  Max Payne is run into a room, kill everyone inside, over and over.  Oblivion is kill everyone in a cave, kill everyone in the next cave.  Counterstrike is the same running and shooting over and over.

Huh, guess you're not the hardcore raider you made yourself out to be. You haven't downed all the bosses in ZG or AQ20 yet? Hell seems like I've passed you then, as I have downed every boss in MC, ZG, AQ20, all but Nef in BWL (attempts tonight) and even downed Skeram in AQ40.
