EA to rename their comapny to "That Shooter Place"
Dead space was interesting, but there were some really odd places. like the whole candlelit chapel in space that made it more castlevania-ish than Lords of shadow. I wonder if the final boss is Space Dracula? It looks like they're turning the QTEs up to 11 this time, which means more time spent watching people do awesome stuff instead of you actually doing awesome stuff yourself. I guess that's the new trend these days.
EA fit seems to be kicking it into full force. with a multiplatform multi motion release. The controls for all seem like they're trying even harder to grab that wii fit demographic and establish it for the other two companies. Meanwhile, Sims 3's trailer looks very un sims like. It almost seems like they're trying to position Sims 3 as the new Second Life. which means that in the process Sims could easily lose both it's identity and what makes it unique. Hopefully this isn't what happens, but who knows.
Stay tuned for more conference talk from yours truly.
