Live Now: Watch EA’s E3 Conferencemercial

It’s E3 Day Zero, which means lots of men standing on stages and saying things like, “action,” “entertainment,” and (weirdly) “innovation.” You’ve already seen Microsoft’s endless trailer/tapdance extravaganza, and now it’s time for EA. Expect Star Wars Battlefront, Dragon Age, (maybe) Mass Effect, and SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS. Go below for the stream and a safe alcove in which to snark to your heart’s content.

    • MkMax says:

      note its the same “no ABC endings” guy as mass effect 3

      • Big Murray says:

        Note: Nobody cares, the world has moved on.

        MASS EFFECT!!!

        • bleeters says:

          I’m not sure where the idea that taking past products into accout when gauging personal interest in upcoming ones is a bad thing came from, but I wish it would go away.

          • MkMax says:

            yeah, he outright lied to our faces, you wont take that into account ? politicians sure love ppl like that, so easy to trick and they come back for more

    When did Dragon Age become a Hack-and-Slash?!?

    • RedViv says:

      You can play it like that clunkily, or use the tactical view that they show. In this presentation. The one that is up there. Once this stream can be replayed. Maybe. Technology.

    • MkMax says:

      in PC? DA2

      but in consoles DA origins was pretty much hack & slash (a bad one mind you)

      supposedly it supports both hack&slash and tactical modes like RedViv said, but imho i dont think you can do both well at the same time, either you stick to one or you suck at both

    dragon age, conceptual bioware prototype while name dropping mass effect, sims, sports sports sports sports mirrors edge sports sports sports sports …..

    I didn’t mind Hardline although it didn’t appeal to me but this presentation with its references to crime-fighting being a “war on the streets between good guys and bad guys” has put me right the fuck off.

    *edit* Also they want £49.99 for the standard edition. That’s, heheh, that’s never going to happen

  6. Shooop says:

    Gotta love how often the frame rate drops so low it turns into a slideshow for a second. Next-gen consoles sure solved everyone’s problems with bandwidth issues didn’t they?

    On a side note, Hardline looks like the Payday 2 everyone wanted but Overkill can’t deliver. But knowing DICE it won’t even start up after you install it until it’s patched a month later.

  7. WarderDragon says:

    That was cringeworthy. I felt embarassed for much of it.

  8. CookPassBabtridge says:

    “and a safe alcove in which to snark to your heart’s content”
    Is there a vomitorium nearby also?

  9. Vandelay says:

    I spent most of the Madden bit wishing that there was a good modern rugby game. And there was much scoffing at the “actual gameplay footage,” of NHL 15. Also very disappointed that the Bruce Lee clip led into a UFC game and not an actual Bruce Lee game.

    So far, so EA.

  10. YukioT says:

    Or how to not say anything about any of these games, except that they exist. Way to use the 1h30 of scene time.

  11. Gap Gen says:

    I turn this on. Two commentators comment on the ridiculousness of the setup and then immediately start hawking Happy Meal preorder crud. I switch off.

    Has it always been this awful, or am I just getting old?

  12. Big Murray says:

    Why do people love Twitch so much? If this was being broadcast on YouTube, I’d be able to rewind the stream to what I actually wanted to watch right now.

    • MkMax says:

      love twitch ? i dont think anyone “loooves” twitch, they put up with it because they dont have other options, it works like crap, it keeps buffering, the chat has so much lag that it made interactive streams pointless

      i didnt know about youtube, i only heard the gamespot stream and the twitch one mentioned, ill keep it in mind if there is another conference

      btw, why do they bother making pre and post shows?, the first stupid thing they say and i turn them off / mute them (usually takes about 5 seconds), if i wanted commentary i would just watch one of the thousands of far better streamers commentating on it

  13. Veritas says:

    I was laughing so hard when they said that in the newest Dragon Age (and it was said as a big NEWS) you’ll be able to pause the game and take control over four characters – it’s SOMETHING that was NEVER done before, so innovative, especially for Dragon Age franchise! And indeed, as someone said, more hack n slash swooshie-mooshie-DogeThatBigThing (darksouls) style.
