Game Over's E3 Preview 24

CNN's Game Over column has a preview of what you're likely to see at this year's E3, and what's probably not going to make a showing. From the article: "For the first time in years, Microsoft will shine some of its gaming PR spotlight on the PC as it prepares for the launch of Windows Vista. While we'll almost certainly see a couple of games that take advantage of the system's improvements, we'll probably also hear a fair bit about how Vista gamers will be able to interact with Xbox 360 players."

    Still no mention of Visual Concepts (Take Two) releasing it's non-NFL-banded "Legends of Football 2K7". :(

    Ever since EA got their exclusivity deals on anything that smells like football, the genre has sucked horribly. There have been rumors flying high that we'd see something from VC/T2, but so far nothing. :\

      I agree, and it has made me hate both the NFL (for allowing exclusive licensing) and EA (for accepting it). Probably moreso at the NFL. You are dealing with an organization that uses public funding to construct its venues, then proceeds to up ticket prices year after year while cracking down on things like outside food for the sake of "terrorism." Then what do you get after the tax payers paid for the stadium and the fans paid for the tickets? The doritos half time show... The wachovia first down... T

    • Does anyone know if Blitz: The League is any good? It's the only non-EA football game out there that looks to have any sort of interesting gameplay / plot / whatever.

      • Well, the thing about Blitz is that it is not to be compared with 2K or Madden. 2K attempted to be a realistic football simulation, and I guess Madden attempts to be, but turns out more like an arcade game with over-the-top play style.

        Blitz was the football answer to NBA Jam. It has 7 players to a side (as opposed to 11), and thus plays more like arena ball then NFL. The game's working title was Blitz: Playmakers and thus attempts to be more like ESPN's TV show than reality.

        Just not my style of game. I'm
      • Blitz: The League is an amazing game. I'd recomend getting it for the Xbox since the PS2 version's load times really got on my nerves. But be warned that it's significant for its presentation and not so much for its gameplay (not to say the gameplay doesn't stack up, it's just not as deep as you might like).

    I can't wait to see more of Spore. 420559198&q=spore&pl=true []

    It looks to be such an awesome game.

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
