Three-Quarters-Assed Guessing About E3 2004
April 15th 2004, 11:19 CEST by Jibble

Will MS be showing off an Xbox 2 prototype?  Will Nintendo's new dual-screen device redefine art?  Will there be scantily clad women so we can argue about whether they're being degraded?  Will Sony's PSP steal the show?  What about the PSX?  What titles are you looking forward to hearing more about?  What rising star company are you keeping tabs on?  Will Infinum Labs be available for endless ridicule, or will you have to make an appointment?  Will Caryn reveal the true nature of Doom 3's co-op capabilities?  Will Half-Life 2 be released before the expo?  Only time will tell, but for now we can snipe at each other endlessly about it.

As long as there is space, I'm going to stare off into it.

I predict that everything shown there will suck, except for Thief 3.  That'll probably suck when it is released.  Doom3 and HL2 won't be there so their sucking is still in question.

Will MS be showing off an Xbox 2 prototype?


Don't care.

Will Nintendo's new dual-screen device redefine art?


Don't care.

Will there be scantily clad women so we can argue about whether they're being degraded?


Yes.

Will Sony's PSP steal the show?


Doubtful.

What about the PSX?


More doubtful.

What titles are you looking forward to hearing more about?


None.  I mean, I'm looking forward to HL 2, but that's not exciting new E3 news.

What rising star company are you keeping tabs on?  


None.

Will Infinum Labs be available for endless ridicule, or will you have to make an appointment?


I can ridicule them just fine from the comfort of my own home.

Will Caryn reveal the true nature of Doom 3's co-op capabilities?


I've played it.  Butter smooth, rock solid framerate, awesome physics.


Will Half-Life 2 be released before the expo?


I wish.  But probably not.

Hmm. I wouldn't mind getting some new info about Sims 2 and The Movies. And maybe Black and White 2. Oh, and Super Monkey Ball 3. It hasn't been officially announced, but I can hope. And Wind Waker 2, now with no dungeons and extra sailing (not kidding).

Oh, shit, the biggest thing: a firm US release date on Phantom Brave.

Dood.

mm, Super Monkey Ball 3....

I hope they fix the party games, because the party games in SMB 1 are so much better than SMB 2.

I want SMB3 to contain all the party games from both 1 and 2, plus new ones. Simultaneous Monkey Target on the levels from the first game, with the wheel of death, would be sweet.

Speaking of Super Monkey Ball 2...  Is there any way to free up those games WITHOUT playing the single player for long hours?  I have no urge to do anymore single player, but a fair amount of those games still aren't freed up.

If not, that's horrible design.

It is a bit annoying, but there's only the six games to unlock. It shouldn't take more than a few hours.

I was looking forward to attending E3 for the first time, but sadly I must wait for another before I can rail at the inhumane treatment that "professional dancers" receive at the hands of sweaty nerds. As compared to that received at sweaty businessmen at their day jobs.

I'll go to E3 the year Nocturne 2 and Ultima 8 get announced.  (Don't argue with me that there already was an Ultima 8, either....the series died after 7.5!)

I am content, Hitman: Contracts has gone gold.

Therefore E3 is irrelevent to me.

Which is a good thing, since I wont be going.

It's a great game but I agreed that the system sucked. You may also recall me supporting Kirby Air Ride's system of unlockables.

The single player game is just plain annoying... I guess I'll just bite the bullet and do it sometime.  Ugh.

The single player of Super Monkey Ball is awesome, fools.

Super Monkey Ball 2 killed Monkey Target by making it split screen, so that in 2 player mode you both play at the same time.  It was infinitely more fun when you'd take turns one after the other, because then there is a lot more tension when the second (or third, or whatever) person goes and knows what they need to beat to win.

Not to mention, split screen just always sucks at TV resolutions...

Oh yeah the Rise of Nations expansion, groovy, I have to wonder what theyve added since the original has a shitload of stuff going on at any time (and in the end cycles is a micromanagement nightmare).

Best PC game at E3 2004:  Doom 3

Best console game at E3 2004:  GTA: San Andreas

Best new hardware launch at E3 2004:  Nintendo DS

"What the fuck were they smoking, when they thought this would be commercially successful" award: Sony's PSP

Most talked about "heard this cool shit from friend of a friend rumors" at E3 2004: Backroom Xbox 2 presentations.

Is it going to be launched on the PS2 again, or are we seeing a cross-platform simultaneous release, I wonder.

Oh yeah, I forgot all about San Andreas. I wonder if the game will reflect that they spent twice as long on it compared to Vice City.
