Chensterrain's Journal - E3 Edition!
--------------------------

uk.gamespot.com/wii/action/sup…

I LOVE YOU FOREVER. NO RLY.
UMM... SORRY FOR MAKING FUN OF THE WII! FORGIVE MEEEE!!! *cough*

No really. OMG. New Smash Bros? I'm in love. Watch the trailer. Solid Snake. Freakin' hilarious. Slowly losing... ability to talk in... complete sentences... gah!!!

And OMG. www.smashbros.com/en/music/ind… - Music composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

NOBUO FREAKIN' UEMATSU. O_o *dies of a fangirlishness-induced heart attack*

*breathes* - sorry about that guys. But whoa!!! Nintendo's E3 show / day / thing was admittedly sort of disappointing (all they did was talk about nintendogs! Though Reggie was there, which is always a riot. 'Iwata, why don't you handle the taking names - I'll take care of the... uh, you know. *wink*' XD I love how I'm talking about this as if I was actually there... XD I love Gamespot!). But this? This takes the cake. This has me sold. Wii, here I come! XD (uh... as long as it's cheap. PS3 is just a joke. I refuse to pay £350 for a console unless it can cook me breakfast and clean my house on the side. Bloody cheek! XD)

Speaking of PS3, mmm, FFXIII. uk.gamespot.com/ps3/rpg/finalf… (weirdly, you can't download the trailer on Gamespot, though you can on IGN. I refuse to link that, though. I have an irrational hatred of that site. XD They've got it on 1UP.com, though, if you're one of the two people who haven't seen it. XD I'm so late with my news!)

I'm liking the look of it so far! Though I can't say I'm thrilled with the idea of a female lead (I thought she was a guy in the artwork O_o ) it all looks pretty cool, as long as there is actually some fantasy in there somewhere, and not just trains and soldiers! It's far too early to tell, of course. And FFXII isn't even out here yet!

OH!!! And *gasp* - uk.gamespot.com/ps2/rpg/taleso… of the Abyss is getting a release stateside!!! Which hopefully means they'll bring it over here! *happydance*

Gawd, I love E3! XD

Nintendo really pulled it out of the bag this E3-the ludicrous prices [and 'Innovative' new motion sensing technology in the controllers XD] for PS3 helped, but the general internet consensus has gone from "Wii? Nintendo are friggin idiots" to "Oh my god, I desperately want a Wii!!" :XD:

All my uncertainties for the Wii have been blown away and I can't wait for them now-definitely my top choice for the next gen consoles :D
I always thought the next gen consoles at this stage seemed kinda meaningless-just slightly shinier graphics and...that's about it with few titles that really seem that amazing announced-but the Wii looks incredibly promising with a lineup of amazing games announced

FF XIII does look interesting-liked the music from the trailer-unsure about the 'in game' footage shown-doesn't look turn based, but doesn't look like XII's system either...seems a lot more action RPG meets FFX-2 at a guess, but we shall see
Also yes-total lack of fantasy so far XD and only one character shown ^^;

I do look forward to this [and MGS4], but probably won't get chance to play unless I sell my house to buy the actual PS3 :XD:

And Smash bros Brawl! XD I really wanna play as Meta Knight and Pit, Snake should be funny :XD:

I keep meaning to watch the MGS4 trailer! Though, to be fair, I've only ever played MGS3, and even then, I only played the 'Snake vs. Monkey' game, where you shoot at the monkeys from Ape Escape.

...I was... really bad at it. XD

But yeah, FFXIII looks smexy, though I admit I'm a little disappointed the main character is a girl (not that I could tell - I honestly thought she was a guy at first) - I'm a sucker for angsty prettyboys! (Though I've been playing FFIX recently, and WHOA - I love it! Possibly my fave FF so far! XD) And I kinda hope the system isn't turn-based... or as little turn-based as possible. Blasphemy, I know, but... I really suck at turn-based fighting... O_o (except in FFIX, for some reason. ^^ )

WIIIIIIIIIIII!!!! The Smash Bros trailer sold me. XD I've never bought a console just for one game before, but I think I may have to... (especially if tit's around 150 or less, as some people are saying. Damn you, Sony! *shakes fist* )

MGS4 looks very very weird, I must say...

MGS3 is my favourite-gameplay was very interesting and varied, and I absolutely loved the plot, but I have enjoyed the whole series
Snake Vs. Monkey was funny :XD: and surprisingly hard

I don't mind a female lead in FF, I just have my concerns that at this stage her personality [like her design] may be more driven by these tech demos than the actual story-seeing as only one character has officially been designed so far lol

FF could work with or without turn based, tbh-I'm not one of these people who is adamant that turn based stuff does not make it an RPG, but I must say I often prefer turn based stuff to Symphonia and Kingdom Hearts style smack the hell out of stuff until it's dead
I kinda like fighting systems to have something special or some element of tactics to them, otherwise fights just become so tedious and just an annoyance slowing down the story

FFX battle system worked well, really-nice pace and good animations without dragging them out too much
I hear FF XII is very different, so that should be interesting

I really want Super Mario Galaxy, Smash Bros Brawl and Metroid Prime 3 for the Wii >.> Red Steel could be a laugh too-I do make a point of saying "I really desperately want a Wii" to one of my friends in public :XD:
I pretty much bought a Gamecube for Smash Bros Melee originally XD

I actually bought a GC for Skies of Arcadia originally (after buying a dreamcast for the same reason and having it break repeatedly on me O_o ), but never got round to it... it was always too expensive! *sob* But bring on SSBM! XD

Nintendo may not have the best graphics, they may not have the best sound, but they sure as hell have some of teh best games. I'm here to play games, not stare at the TV for the 5up4h 1337 gr4f1x. I say huzzah for Nintendo, hurrah, excelsior!

Plus think of PS3 and it's games. Blue Ray = expensive, meaning games = expensive. D8
Side note: *foams at mouth* Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Exactly! And besides, the way I see it, there's hardly much of a graphical improvement with most new games anyway. I mean, c'mon. They're selling xbox 360 versions of original xbox games for 20 extra, but you can barely tell the difference unless you shell out for an expensive HD television! *grumble* (and besides, the gamecube's graphical advantage over the PS2 didn't exactly help it out there... XD)

*wants Smash Bros RIGHT NOW*

Really? I've never played it - it never really appealed to me, though. I kinda wish they'd bring a REAL FF to a nintendo system - one of the main ones, I mean, even if it was also available on PS3 or whatever. I loved FF Tactics Advance, but the storyline and characters were pretty crap... >_>

yeah, that would be awsome! I've yet to try dragon quest though, and there's one of those coming out for the wii!

I keep meaning to buy whichever Dragon Quest came out for the PS2 recently - apparently, the voice actors are european! *would actually buy a game to hear that XD * But I might as well wait for the Wii version... ^_^

Your Link looks pretty nice in the Smash Bros. thing!

I'm really pissed about the PS3. >.> FF13 looks cool and all, but if that price doesn't go way down there is no way I'll buy it. Are they insane?

chensterrain Featured By Owner May 12, 2006   Digital Artist
I know... there's absolutely no way I'd buy it at that price, either! >_> Irritatingly, even the low-memory (20gb) version is super expensive. They'd do better to release a slightly cut-down version (which could be upgraded later? Can you do that with the 360? I think so... O_o ) at around the same price as the Wii... *sighs*

::nods:: that harddrive stuff is probably for the online games, and, well... when I want to play online I use my computer. >.> I liked the idea they had for the slim PS2, it's supposed to be able to hook up to your personal computer and can play via that. Maybe they'll make a slim PS3?

chensterrain Featured By Owner May 12, 2006   Digital Artist
I've never used the PS2's online service... *has a slim PS2* ...'cause I'm cheap, and it ain't free. XD That's why I want a DS - free online multiplayer! And I'm pretty sure the Wii and PS3 are confirmed to have free online play too... *not sure*
Reply
:iconvailiya:
Vailiya Featured By Owner May 12, 2006
I haven't used it either, and I agree with you. I am cheap too, and I do NOT plan on paying for games I already bought once. lol

The Nintendo DS has free online multiplayer? *has a DS* I only have... okay, this is pathetic but I only have *one* game that is actually a DS game, so I don't know much about them. I never had a Game Boy Advance since it came out like a month after I got my Gameboy Color (poor planning on my part, I know) so I was ODing on being able to play those. lol

And if the console costs a friggin fortune, it's hardly free online play! Especially for people like me who wouldn't play those games *anyway*. >.>

Ooh, you have a DS? *envy* XD yeah, you can play online for free - certain places have 'wi-fi hotspots' where you can take your DS and just play online. I know some McDonalds have 'em, and presumably game shops? (I only know where to find them in the UK! XD) You can also buy a dongle adapter thingummy for your PC which turns your house into a hotspot. It's pretty cool, as you only have to pay for the adapter (though you need to have broadband). You can tell which games work with it as they usually have a little blue wi-fi symbol on the box... I think. XD Which game do you have?

*is still stuck with an ancient Gameboy Advance* >_> It barely turns on anymore! Oh, what I'd do for a backlight... XD

A weird game... Trace Memory? My aunt got it for me for Christmas. I'm not really into Mario and I'm not a dog person so I couldn't really find a game I wanted that was made to work with the DS. There isn't much selection out yet. I wish they made a Nintendocats game. lol I don't know if our McDonalds are wifi, I never heard of that before. But yes. If I had a game that could do it I would try. lol

I'd never heard of Trace Memory... until I remembered it's called Another Code over here. God knows why. XD I heard a rumour a while ago that they were actually making a nintendo cats game ('Nintencats!' ...*cough* ) though I don't know if that's actually true - there's not a great deal you can do with a cat... >_>

but yeah. The best games for wi-fi seem to be Mario Kart and Animal Crossing, as far as I know... and I'm not a huge fan of either. >_> I really wanna get trauma centre and phoenix wright, though - i've heard they're really good! XD
