E3 2012: Sony Press Conference

Sony certainly did quite the Press Event today, starting off with some maximum levels of dubstep. My write-up for Sony is going to be extra brief, simply because life is like that sometimes. So buckle up and let’s summarize some E3 shit!

Beyond: Two Souls


David Cage of Quantic Dreams came out to arouse entice the audience right at the start of the press conference. Quantic Dreams is known of course for Heavy Rain and expectations are high.

Beyond stars a Jodie (or Jody, not sure) with some semi-supernatural powers. Jodie is played by none other than Ellen Page of Juno and Inception< fame. The game looks interesting, and the visuals are absolutely stunning. I know one of our friends was almost in tears of joy by the time the trailer finished, so this is obviously something to look out for.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Like most guest hosts at Ubisoft’s Press Conferences these two came across as incredibly forced, but at least they were amusing at times. Now onto the rest of the show:

 

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 was the first non-spectacle of a game to make it out of the gate. Well that would be true if it wasn’t for the fact that the trailer starts with some of the worst rendered breasts in modern gaming. I would say this trailer is NSFW, but the boobs are so plastic and unrealistic that I wouldn’t worry about it. Follow through to Kotaku for the full trailers for what looks to be the winner of the batshit crazy award of E3.

Next up was another trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, but sadly I can’t find a decent version to put on the site. Honestly I didn’t find what was shown to be any more or less impressive than what was seen during Microsoft’s Press Conference. Continue reading
