It’s been a blockbuster of an E3.So many games to ook forward to. New Dead Space 2 trailer – lookin awesome! And some other stuff about the 3DS or something, ho hum consoles snore.
The 2 biggies in my book were The Old Republic, which had a sweet new CGI rendered trailer, and Warhammer 40K. Specifically 40K, which now has a title : Dark Millenium, and showed some actual gameplay footage, unlike ToR. 40K looks very WoW-ish. Very, very WoWish. But release date? Sometine 2013. That’s a long, long way off. It’s unlikely we’ll be quittin WoW anytime soon. The Old Republic is arriving a little sooner, somewhere in the second quarter next year at most optimistic estimate. But, I’m wondering if it’s going to be the game that kills WoW. Having looked at some actual gameplay footage? The game looks a little…well…dated.
Of course I’ll be giving the game a shot when it releases. I mean c’mon! It’s Star Wars! I love Star Wars. I’m a Star Wars slut. But, if WAR taught me anything, being a fan of the IP doesn’t matter if the game isn’t fun and compelling. 40K’s gameplay, what little was shown of it, looked compelling. ToR’s…..doesn’t.
Either way, lots to look forward to.
