E3 – 2009 – Day Two

Not a lot of excitement for me out of today’s E3.

I love the new Assassin’s Creed II trailer, but it’s just a cinematic. No game play. Similarly, the cinematic from Team Ico we’ve all seen has been given a title, as Last Guardian was officially announced. It’s also stated to be the third in the trilogy of titles also featuring Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

Final Fantasy? No thanks. I love RPGs but I never got into Final Fantasy. I spent about 15 hours trying with part 7, but… I think the days of me grinding through hordes and hordes of monsters ended after I finished the first three Phantasy Star games.

From the list of Nintendo-centric reveals, Wii Sports Resort and Super Mario Galaxy 2 are the games I’ll jump for. Super Mario Galaxy was tons of fun, and I think I played Wii Sports more than anything. I love that the new one has basketball, but it brings golf back, too? Why the repeat?

Not sure if I’ll get the new Rabbids Go Home game or not, but I’ve played the last few so I can assume it’s likely it gets a rental, at least. The trailer is cute. 🙂

A new Super Mario Brothers doesn’t interest me. Nor does Metroid. Zelda on the DS is iffy, but I still need to play the last one for the DS, Phantom Hourglass.

Golden Sun for the DS might have interested me had I had a better experience with the franchise. I got the first two titles and got about 1/3 of the way through the first one when a critical path bug blocked my progress. My only option was to start over from the beginning, and I was unwilling to to do that for a game that was only mildly entertaining me.

Is there anything else?

No. I don’t think so. A heart-rate monitor for the Fit? Uploading DS photos to Facebook? Meh. 🙂
