I really hope it does. Because if every planet takes 15-20 minutes to get around and less than 10 seconds to get out of orbit the game is going to feel tiny.
I'm going to admit that the new AC has me interested in AC games, if only because I can dick about with my friends who all love AC games. I'd be a clumsy sidekick who introduced fun comedy times to their game of stabbing dudes in the neck.

The new concept art and talking to staff trailers are really fucking annoying. So Mirror's Edge became less interesting.
Lots of bombastic sequels I don't care about. Though the new AC is finally in a time period that would make it interesting... probably still dull though. Batman lost it's shine the moment the batmobile turned into a tank and blew stuff up. Farcry 4 started to look like the moment Patrick Bateman hallucinates he's blowing up cars with a pistol.
The gore levels are going through the roof. More zombies.
No Man's Sky does look cool and the Witcher 3's following the blood trail stuff looks ambitious. Apart from those 2 things it's all kinda meh.
EDIT: Also the Grim Fandango thing I was muttering, annoyingly for those that work with me, that PC games are backwards compatible at the stupid imagined 12 year old.

I watched the whole of EA's thing hoping for more Star Wars, then there wasn't and I'd sat through a load of sports I don't care about for nothing. I was disappointed. AC Unity looks like it might be the best one since Brotherhood though.

This appears to be the year of the 4-player co-op, following on from the year of the bow and so on.
I think Microsoft and Sony did a good job this year, putting a lot on offer. I love Halo, but that is all Microsoft has on offer at the moment if Sunset Overdrive doesn't work out. Sony always seems to have an excellent action adventure in the offering with Uncharted, The Last of Us and 1886, I'm a little jealous. The Witcher 3 has me rather excited after that gameplay video yesterday, the world is looking good, I'm just hoping the combat is getting the improvements it needs.
Ubisoft is still going strong with most of their sequels, and they all show some promise. Watching the Far Cry 4 gameplay has gotten me pretty excited, they certainly have added something to it with the verticality, before I was worried that Vaas had bought a suit and not much else. The Division is one of those games that looks interesting, but the gameplay wasn't much different from last year, and Watch_Dogs looked pretty much the same the second time round, and look how that turned out on release. I almost forgot the Crew was about heists (it is, isn't it?), with so little to demonstrate, I'm not big on driving for the sake of driving, but if I can pull off some crazy daring heists then the game might grab me.
EA was by far the worst and are probably going to be the 'losers' of E3 unless Nintendo somehow fail to do anything in their event today. I like how they introduced the new Criterion game by saying "we normally don't show things this early", almost every game in your show was in the same position!
Inquisition wasn't presented all that well, with some weird gameplay clip that didn't show all that much, and I'm still feeling very uneasy about it, despite my plans to get my save ready just in case. Bioware failed to do anything other than mention the Mass Effect game we've known about for a year, and mention that they are working on something else but that's it.
The typical sports section was about as predictable as it is every year, "you can sports more now than you could sports last year"! They should really just trim it down to 5 minutes for the entire sports section and stop trying to make physics and animation improvements seem really profound and interesting, it's an upgrade, not life-changing.
Mirror's Edge and Battlefront had nothing to show, which given the fact that they were announced a year ago makes me worried you could at least show a small slice surely? Hardline was completely shown up by Siege and if I really want some cops vs robbers action then PAYDAY 2 is slowly shaping up, and will be far more playable than Hardline will be over the next year.
I'm looking forward to Nintendo today; hopefully the 3DS is getting some nice new games (I don't want to hear about Pokemon today, despite liking the franchise, it's just not new). I also want to hear something to make the Wii U worthwhile, I keep eyeing it up but there isn't enough to sell me on it yet, which considering the amazing 1st party IP Nintendo has to offer is unbelievable.

Bad news about not wanting to hear about Pokémon, because you're definitely hearing about it.
Whilst it was odd there was less to show off Mirror's Edge, I'm not at all surprised about Battlefront. The EA/Star Wars agreement wasn't that much time before E3, so they were still definitely in early concept stages. At an event later this year, I expect we'll hear more.

Hardline is intriguing to me. I mean, it obviously is technically a Battlefield 3/4 mod, that's undeniable. But the design of competitive multiplayer is very interesting and involves much new elements not implemented before. It's a chase and evasion. I can't believe it, both cops and bandits are human players?! I need to try myself to see how it really works out.
But of course, personally I always want to try to be a cop.

I missed it yesterday (got off work, watched Sony, pretty much went to sleep), but apparently R6 Patriots is dead and now it is R6 Siege.
The PvP looks interesting. I think this is the best barvariably going to have a significant advantage (Terrorists find a room with no breach points and barricade the hostage or the Rainbows always know where to breach to get the hostage), but this should be fun for modern lan parties and the like.
But mostly I want the SP and the PvE, since even if they are both "Rainbow Six Vegas 3" I would be ecstatic. I love old school Rainbow, but I also love R6: Vegas.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Battlefield Hardline looks like bombastic Counterstrike.

Regarding BF Hardline: I could kind of understand it if the game was tongue-in-cheek, but it looks like the game is actually taking itself seriously, which is just laughable. A group of criminals armed with RPGs rob a bank or something, the police go after them and wreck half the damn city in the process. Jesus. Freaking. Christ.

Hardline is Heat: The Game and not very subtle about it. Maybe I'll get it if they put in a Val Kilmer skin.Immersive Sims on Steam WIP
