Antony June 10, 20132:58 pm

The two most interesting parts of this conference took up about 45 seconds of it. Think about that.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:58 pm

Oh good, we’re done. That was largely terrible. Thanks for joining us for our press conference, stay tuned to Talkingship.com for all your E3 coverage.

Antony June 10, 20132:58 pm

A lot of boring garbage, but Plants Vs Zombies looks great, and we got Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror’s Edge 2 teased. I call that a kind of success.

Antony June 10, 20132:57 pm

I think I forgive EA for SimCity now.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:57 pm

‘Coming…When it’s ready’. GOD DAMMIT EA.

Antony June 10, 20132:57 pm

Oh, I just remembered that EA make games that I like.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:57 pm

The combat looks half-decent this time round.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:56 pm

RUNNING RUNNING JUMPY RUNNING

Antony June 10, 20132:56 pm

MIREIEGEG MEIREIMR MIRROR’S EDGE TWO

Shaxster June 10, 20132:56 pm

OH DAYUM DAYUM DAYUM

Shaxster June 10, 20132:56 pm

MIRRORS EDGE 2

Shaxster June 10, 20132:56 pm

The real question: is there a dog?

Antony June 10, 20132:55 pm

I’m not particularly interested in Battlefield 4, but footage like this does make me wonder how on earth Call of Duty is still a thing.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:55 pm

Ooh, they blew up a building. How revolutionary. DUBSTEP WUB WUB.

Antony June 10, 20132:54 pm

Remember James Bond: Nightfire’s multiplayer on the PS2? That was pretty fun.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:53 pm

I really dislike Battlefield 4.

Antony June 10, 20132:53 pm

My stream’s back. I’d ask if I missed much but I think I already know the answer to that question.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:52 pm

Oh look he’s on a jetski. How not exciting.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:51 pm

Oh thank god, destructible environments are back.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:51 pm

God, this is so bad. Just shooting shooting and more shooting.

Antony June 10, 20132:50 pm

The winner of E3’s “Best New Word” Award is currently a toss-up between Drivatar and Levelution.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:50 pm

Like seriously, why do I need 63 other people to shoot at me?

Shaxster June 10, 20132:49 pm

64 player multiplayer. So what?

Antony June 10, 20132:48 pm

My stream just cut out and I’m not really considering this a bad thing.

Antony June 10, 20132:48 pm

Commander Mode, AKA: You will sit in the back of the room with the SmartGlass and if you talk to us while we’re playing I will punch you in the face.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:48 pm

Commander Mode? So, RTS mode.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:47 pm

Mirror’s Edge 2 isn’t happening, is it.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:47 pm

Finally, a real game.

Antony June 10, 20132:46 pm

Just give me another look at Battlefield and I’ll be on my way. I never thought that Plants Vs Zombies would be the most exciting thing in an EA conference.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:44 pm

I’ve just stopped paying attention. So fed up.

Antony June 10, 20132:43 pm

I bet Dana is great with kids.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:41 pm

So much cringe. There is fake applause playing. What is this.

Antony June 10, 20132:41 pm

UFC?

Shaxster June 10, 20132:41 pm

Are we done? Can we talk about real games now? Please.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:40 pm

I haven’t eaten in about 10 hours.

Antony June 10, 20132:40 pm

I just finished the pizza.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:39 pm

Compared to MS and Apple’s great conferences, this is a mess. And I missed the first half.

Antony June 10, 20132:39 pm

This conference is over half way done. What.

Antony June 10, 20132:38 pm

They couldn’t bring any footballers out because Americans wouldn’t recognise them, so here’s a rapper who kind of likes FIFA.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:37 pm

Oh for god’s sake why is Drake here. Drake, go away. We don’t want you.

Antony June 10, 20132:37 pm

Oh good, it’s Drake. Wait, what.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:37 pm

I won’t even buy this. I HATE SPOARTS.

Antony June 10, 20132:37 pm

I kind of want them to show Plants vs Zombies again…

Antony June 10, 20132:35 pm

I haven’t been asking for a full length Madden trailer, and if you have then E3 is probably the wrong place for you.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:35 pm

I don’t think anyone asked for this trailer, actually.

Antony June 10, 20132:34 pm

In case people are interested in something a little more, well… interesting, right now: I’m eating a pizza. It’s pepperoni and tastes pretty good.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:34 pm

This is so, so boring.

Antony June 10, 20132:31 pm

I can’t wait to see what more innovation NBA Live produces. I’m going to guess basketball.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:31 pm

Haha he was pausing for applause and NO ONE cared.

Antony June 10, 20132:30 pm

LITERALLY TIED TO THE BALL.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:29 pm

Asking the tough questions.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:29 pm

Why is dribbling important in that sport where all you do is dribble?

Shaxster June 10, 20132:28 pm

yo dawg we’re going to release this game then you’re not going to return it because USED GAME FEES

Antony June 10, 20132:28 pm

What the cRap?

Shaxster June 10, 20132:28 pm

what. the. crap?

Antony June 10, 20132:28 pm

IT’S AN NBA RAP. THIS IS WHAT VIDEO GAMES NEEDED.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:28 pm

Jesus guys calm down it’s only a basketball this cannot be compared to the Sistine Chapel at all stop poetrying

Shaxster June 10, 20132:27 pm

RELEASE AND RETURNS FOLK

Antony June 10, 20132:27 pm

All I can hear is “I am a fist bump in human form.” Dammit, VGTV.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:27 pm

Oh dear.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:26 pm

sports.

Antony June 10, 20132:26 pm

Shaxster, you didn’t hear the awkward silence after the Peggle 2 “bombshell”. That was painful.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:26 pm

SPORTS

Antony June 10, 20132:26 pm

SPORTS.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:26 pm

SPOARTS

Shaxster June 10, 20132:26 pm

Awkward silence there.

Antony June 10, 20132:26 pm

It looks and sounds like a total reimagining, though, so we’ll see.

Antony June 10, 20132:25 pm

Remember the first Dragon Age? You know, the good one? I hope this is like that.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:24 pm

Dragon Age. Ehhh.

Antony June 10, 20132:23 pm

Coming next are Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA Sports, and Battlefield 4. SPOILERS.

Antony June 10, 20132:22 pm

And they’re making a Not Burnout movie! With a guy from Breaking Bad! We’re getting a behind the scenes look now. Video games.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:22 pm

Yay, Aaron Paul.

Antony June 10, 20132:22 pm

And that’s Not Burnout: Rivals.

Antony June 10, 20132:21 pm

At least with all this SmartGlass support, the third wheels of your friendship groups have something to do.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:21 pm

And that rain/snow is really annoying.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:21 pm

This is quite GTA like.

Antony June 10, 20132:19 pm

Because the one thing you want in a driving game like Need for Speed is helicopters, right?

Antony June 10, 20132:19 pm

Oh wait, Criterion are working on this too. Sigh, I’ll put my Burnout 6 fantasies on hold. Again.

Antony June 10, 20132:18 pm

I hope a new studio doing NFS means I can stop caring about it and Criterion can go back to Burnout.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:18 pm

Carssssss.

Antony June 10, 20132:17 pm

DICE are doing Battlefront then? And in Frostbite 3. But apparently Need for Speed is more important. ‘Kay.

Shaxster June 10, 20132:17 pm

Oh. My. God.

Antony June 10, 20132:16 pm

My heart’s stopped and I think I’m dead now.

Antony June 10, 20132:16 pm

STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT

Antony June 10, 20132:16 pm

All games from now will be on Ignite and DICE’s Frostbite 3. Expect beautiful graphics out of every orifice. And Battlefield 4, probably.

Antony June 10, 20132:14 pm

Respawn have the emphasis on fun. They have “moments”, apparently. It all sounds and looks very promising and I want it.

Antony June 10, 20132:13 pm

We’re getting a look into the development of the game, as well as a little more footage of Titanfall itself.

Antony June 10, 20132:11 pm

They have a nice video for us.

Antony June 10, 20132:11 pm

And here’s the big one. Titanfall closed the Microsoft conference, now we’re gonna hear some more on it here.

Antony June 10, 20132:10 pm

Peggle 2 is also confirmed! Why am I excited about this?!

Antony June 10, 20132:10 pm

The multiplayer so far all seems online, if there’s been an X1 game yet that deserves split-screen though, it’s this.

Antony June 10, 20132:08 pm

DISCO ZOMBIE.

Antony June 10, 20132:08 pm

The core gameplay seems to be basic class-based fighting, with plant equivalents of close combat and ranged fighters, healers and the like.

Antony June 10, 20132:07 pm

Four player co-op survival mode, looking pretty good so far.

Antony June 10, 20132:06 pm

The PopCap guys are turning Plants Vs. Zombies into a third person action game, coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360. Colour me interested.

Antony June 10, 20132:04 pm

The conference is kicking off with a familiar sound, is that Battlefield? Nope, it’s Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. Well, okay then.

Antony June 10, 20132:03 pm

Peter Moore takes to the stage, as is his habit, welcoming people to “the Download”. Hopefully there’s no microtransactions for this, Moore.

Antony June 10, 20132:02 pm

Here it is. Time for EA to take the stage. Expect Battlefield, Madden, FIFA, UFC, and whatever Guillermo Del Toro is working on. It’s go time.
