Report article RSS Feed Exams Imminent...so is E3

Posted by SCΛRECROW on Jun 10th, 2010

It's been quite a while since the last blog, but now seems like a good time as any to post a new blog...well, not really. My first exam is in 3 days, which happens to be a public holiday and the first day of E3. WHY?!

So, I will be looking out for these games (in no particular order) at E3:

  • Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
  • Medal of Honor (E3 HD trailer| E3 MP HD trailer)
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 (E3 HD trailer)
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic (E3 HD trailer)
  • Portal 2 (delayed till 2011) (E3 HD trailer)
  • Half Life 3 or Half Life 2: Episode 3 (both rumoured)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Meh...
  • Crysis 2
  • SOCOM 4 (more for the music than the game)
  • Halo: Reach (also for the music) (E3 HD trailer)
  • Metal Gear Soild: Rising (E3 HD trailer) <--- Lets hope this gets past the OFLC first.

In other events, I went to the Digital Life photography expo last week. Got to use a lot of expensive cameras a lenses. My favourite camera and lens combo was the Nikon D3S ($7,500AUD) and the 600mm f/4 VR ($17,000AUD), it amazing telephoto reach. Also, 9 FPS is crazy, somehow it felt like using an automatic weapon. I also got to use other various Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic and Samsung cameras and lenses. So, now I'm tempted to buy a 105mm f/2.8 macro lens and a new full frame DSLR.

Going to attempt to study now. Talk later.

Yeah, I think they shifted the game into the main stream "run-and-gun" type shooter and the AI seems to be idiotic...looks fun though.

It just looked like a clone of the Modern Warfare series...I might take a closer look later on.

Im looking out for all those games except Ghost Recon, Crysis 2 and SOCOM

and yeah Black Ops looks like so much like a clone of Modern Warfare 2... although it should since it uses the same engine and is basically overall just a mod of MW2 :P
