Post E3 2013 Summary • Posted: Mon Jun 10, 2013 1:29 pm
It's that time of year again when E3 shows off all the new and (questionably) exciting things in the world of gaming! Once again, I'll be doing a summary of the conferences of E3 and having links if you want to watch them.

First off, Microsoft had their conference this morning:
Conference - http://www.gamespot.com/e3/microsoft-pr ... slot;Slot1
Starts around 36:40

- Kicking things off with Kiefer Sutherland as Snake with shrapnel in his head in Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain
360 Stuff
- New smaller 360 available
- Gold members get two free game downloads per month (first off is AC2 and Halo 3)
- Splinter Cell Blacklist, Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Batman Arkham Origins, and GTA V for Xbox 360 coming out over the year.
- World of Tanks announced, Max The Curse of Brotherhood, and Darksouls II for the 360

X Box One (Xbone) stuff
- Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Zombie parkour or uh.. Sunset Overdrive announced
- Forza Motersport 5 announced with a fancy car on stage
- Minecraft... yay
- Quantum Break details
- Project Spark which seems like a game maker that can use voice commands. It looks pretty neat.
- Xbone Smartglass details which works as an Ipad that controls your Xbone.
- Upload Studio which lets you share your videos and upload them. Instant Let's Play go! Of course you can stream them too on Twitch
- Crimson Dragon (with audio issues) announced.
- Dead Rising 3 announced
- Extremely bored sounding guy announces Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
- Battlefield 4....
- new game Below announced
- Halo 5 (OF COURSE!)
- last exclusive announced wasn't Call of Duty! But Titan Fall
Oh and the Xbone is $499 and will be out November 2013

Then, voted worst company in America, EA takes the stage next:
Conference - http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/23110225

- Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare kicks things off as John Vechey comes out with a zombie head on. For Xbone and Playstation 4. It looks... very different than the original, like a third person game where you actually control the plants.
- Peggle 2 announced. John Vechey very excited for it.
- More Titan Fall stuff
- Space Battles Pew Pew Pew: Battle Front announced though not much is shown.
- Need for Speed: Rivals and Need for Speed movie coming out with a fancy car on stage!
- Dragon Age 3: Inquisition shown! (Well, might as well throw this out there but this is what Edmonton BioWare has been working on). Slated for fall 2014
- What would EA be without new SPORTS GAMES! NBA Live 2014 (with slam poetry... :lol: but no seriously that happened), Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14 (Drake was on stage for FIFA for some reason), mic dropped down from the stage to this guy to announce UFC.
- More Battlefield 4 stuff
- Mirror's Edge 2 announced to close the show!

Ubisoft is next up. Let's what terrible host they have this year.
Conference - http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/gamesites/up ... index.html

- It's Aisha Tyler again...
- Opening with a live performance from Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains to promote Rocksmith and Kinect so you can learn guitar. I guess you use a real guitar instead of a Guitar Hero controller.
- Splinter Cell Blacklist (TOM CA-LANCY!)
- Rayman Legends stuff (even thought it should be out already)
- The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot which seems like an MMO
- South Park: The Stick of Truth announced

- Watch Dogs stuff
- Just Dance 2014 of course.
- Rabbids Invasion TV Show and it's interactive
