E3 2007 highlights so far

So far out of the big three press conferences, Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony, Sony’s was easily the best. It had the best trailer, and had playable games afterwards. I was able to play Devil May Cry 4, Stranglehold, and God of War: Chains of Olympus. All look pretty good, though DMC is suffering from a twinge of not too much innovation.
Also, Stranglehold is nigh-impossible for me to aim in. I don’t know if it’s my lack of skill with console first-person shooters or a problem with the game, but trying to actually aim shots at people while you’re diving through the air? I’m sorry but you need 10 seconds to line up the cursor with someone using an analog stick, and you get 1-2 seconds to pull off one of the special shots you need to do in order to build up your special attack meter in that game. The game needs an auto-aim or get-close-and-the-game-locks-on-for-you aiming function.
I didn’t get to play Ratchet and Clank, Heavenly Sword, and Lair like I was hoping. I will try to see if I can catch them on the show floor.

  1. I thought you may have been at E3 this week! Thanks for the updates.
    All I can say is that this past week I downloaded the demo of Blue Dragon on XBOX Live. It’s everything I am hoping for and may be the first game in over 7 years that has me dropping 60 beans on day one.
    Now I just need to crunch some FFXII (finally) before the end of August.
