I wish Nintendo had more of revolution to show, but if its not ready then why try to stick out some cheap CGI that don't show the system at all. I do believe that Sony and Microsofts demos were enhanced or complete CGI.

Right now all the games I want are for the DS except for Zelda, pretty much the next gen is a big disappointment.

This year I was accually there, and might I say that I did not like the Microsoft area. I really liked Call of Dudy 2's preview that I waited in a 30-40 minuet line for. All in All I loved going.

My Personal highlights:

Best Presentation:

I will also say Sony their visual layout was fantastic. Nintendo had good showing of the new Zelda but that was about the best they had.

Worst Presentation:

I can’t really say who had the worst presentation. But over 60% of everything shown this year was unspectacular in my eyes. The entire show, relatively flat overall.

Best Looking demonstration:

Kill Zone and MotorStorm were the best looking video demonstrations I saw. The short flashes of Tekken and Devil May Cry looked nice as well.

Best Looking Game Demo:

These are the playable demo games I think looked the best visually.

Prey, Kingdom Hearts II, Soulcalibur III, and Gears of War.

Disappointing No-show:

Max Payne 3 (it was announced over 2 years ago. I hear production has not even stated yet. :( ) Also Virtua Fighter 360 and Shinobi were disappointing No-shows as well.

Worst Represented Game:

Metal Gear Solid 4 (the video was funny but not much of trailer)

Most Disappointing Offering:

Phantasy Star Universe (Not what I was hoping for)

Games Looking Forward to:

Gunstar Super Heroes, Soulcalibur III KoF NeoWave, Ninja Gaiden Black, Prey, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.

I also forgot to mention The Warriors. It looks like it may be a faithful recreation of the film. But I do not like the use of the Grand Theft Auto/Manhunt engine. I was also hoping for it to come out on more capable hardware. (or perhaps a more capable developer)

Some of you may remember this strange movie (made in 1979) what do you think of the game adaptation?

(Can you dig it ;) )


-data-

Rockstar has revealed further details of its upcoming game adaptation of the 1979 cult-classic, The Warriors. The game will be beat-em-up in the style of GTA (huge, open levels). We’re thinking a River City Ransom for the 21st Century—Rockstar threw the names “Double Dragon” & “Streets of Rage” into its description. That’s legacy…

Rockstar has promised to stay faithful to the movie’s plot, but will also include a prequel in the game’s story. Hopefully we’ll all be seeing more of The Warriors soon—maybe E3? Whatever the case, it’s definitely got our attention. We’ll keep you posted.

It's not going to be amazing, that's for sure. Only Sega can do justice to the Streets of Rage name. Throwing it in as part of a game's description is like adding 'made of solid gold' to a car's decription. Unless the phrase is something like 'will be no where near as good as Streets of Rage', it's going to ba a falsehood
