bluexy @ 01:58PM
bluexy @ 01:58PM
Thanks, everyone. That's the end of the show! Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirrors Edge 2! Not to mention Peggle 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare!
bluexy @ 01:57PM
11 fantastic titles to define the new generation.
bluexy @ 01:57PM
Peter Moore takes the stage.
bluexy @ 01:56PM
She's smashing these guys with glass helmets' faces in. She's back, everyone! "Coming... when it's ready." Aww.
bluexy @ 01:56PM
Meanwhile, she's also getting a rad tattoo.
bluexy @ 01:56PM
Faith is running through a building.
bluexy @ 01:56PM
Oh god it's Mirror's Edge 2.
bluexy @ 01:55PM
Tattoo artist.
bluexy @ 01:55PM
One last trailer.
bluexy @ 01:55PM
One more DICE surprise!
bluexy @ 01:55PM
Thanks DICE!
bluexy @ 01:55PM
Now a patented quick Battlefield 4 montage to close out the gameplay.
bluexy @ 01:54PM
Guy screams a building is going down. We're watching a skyscraper fall.
bluexy @ 01:54PM
bluexy @ 01:54PM
The commander is playing from a tablet, by the way.
bluexy @ 01:53PM
Yus, now the commander is calling in a missile to hit the dudes just idling. They've been waiting the whole game to die to this missile.
bluexy @ 01:53PM
They showed screens of players, but they all were... well, not doing much of anything except looking through their scopes at something in the distance.
bluexy @ 01:52PM
The helicopter pushes them back into a skyscraper. This is all very scripted, but I think there's a game going on somewhere in the background.
bluexy @ 01:52PM
They're in boats now, but a helicopter trashes them so they eject on waverunners. Hahahah
bluexy @ 01:51PM
bluexy @ 01:51PM
bluexy @ 01:51PM
"Watch out for the jeep!"
bluexy @ 01:51PM
They blow out the roof of the building to climb out.
bluexy @ 01:51PM
Tank blows away an arch-way the player is standing under. He doesn't take any damage though. It's a demo!
bluexy @ 01:50PM
Of course, the player we're watching isn't getting attacked. They're all standing around a flag point, American fla, naturally.
bluexy @ 01:50PM
Commander asking players to attack point B.
bluexy @ 01:49PM
They're flying in on helicopters. Flying between buildings. Tanks below, and people on foot.
bluexy @ 01:49PM
There will be a livestream of E3 action all week long on the Battlefield website. 64 players.
bluexy @ 01:48PM
Yup, 64 players on-stage playing live.
bluexy @ 01:48PM
Jumping into the demo. Siege of Shanghai. There's a ton of people on stage. 64.
bluexy @ 01:48PM
bluexy @ 01:48PM
We're seeing an overhead map with a lot of data.
bluexy @ 01:47PM
Commander mode is being introduced. Directly impact the action on the ground.
bluexy @ 01:47PM
"All out war." Land, Air and Sea.
bluexy @ 01:47PM
Battlefield 4 is now up.
bluexy @ 01:46PM
Not sure if that was gameplay, but I guess the punches are more important. The violence.
bluexy @ 01:46PM
Lots of rippling cheeks after being punched.
bluexy @ 01:46PM
It's all cinematic so far.
bluexy @ 01:45PM
Trailer coming up! What does this game look like.
bluexy @ 01:45PM
Launches spring 2014.
bluexy @ 01:45PM
Full body deformation. This is a feature. It's important.
bluexy @ 01:44PM
"You want to know what it's like to be punched in the face."
bluexy @ 01:44PM
bluexy @ 01:44PM
Jon Jones talks about improv skills being key.
bluexy @ 01:43PM
MMAi lets fighter organically alter strategies.
bluexy @ 01:43PM
Let's talk about some features.
bluexy @ 01:43PM
bluexy @ 01:43PM
Fighting was the first sport on Earth, according to the UFC dude with the bald head. I forget his name.
bluexy @ 01:42PM
bluexy @ 01:42PM
Will they fight on stage!? No. No they won't.
bluexy @ 01:41PM
Jon Jones, Benson Henderson coming out on stage, a couple of title holders for the UFC.
bluexy @ 01:41PM
Head of EA Sports coming out to talk UFC!

bluexy @ 01:40PM
Okay, they're keying in on the precision in the game, on top of the dynamic play they've added with the Ignite engine. Coming this fall to next-gen consoles. Demo playable at E3.
bluexy @ 01:39PM
Move with the precision movement of a pro!
bluexy @ 01:39PM
bluexy @ 01:39PM
"See and feel the reactions and emotions of the players and the crowds."
bluexy @ 01:38PM
Matt Bilby!
bluexy @ 01:38PM
He's just introducing the next nerd. That was odd.
bluexy @ 01:38PM
He says he plays a lot of FIFA.
bluexy @ 01:38PM
I'm not sure what the golden owl has with FIFA, but maybe it has to do with his music?
bluexy @ 01:37PM
He has a golden owl necklace.
bluexy @ 01:37PM
Drake takes the stage.
bluexy @ 01:37PM
Unlike Madden, FIFA is less about the specific details than the emotion, or so they make it seem.
bluexy @ 01:36PM
They're keying in on the emotions of real football players on the pitch.
bluexy @ 01:36PM

bluexy @ 01:36PM
Messi is talking over some gameplay footage.
bluexy @ 01:35PM
What sport is next!? FIFA!
bluexy @ 01:35PM
Focus of the trailer is all about the energy and precision of football.
bluexy @ 01:35PM
When you're playing you don't look at their faces though.
bluexy @ 01:35PM
Lots of impact shots, when players bounce or hit each other. Graphics look good, but there's still a lot of uncanny valley to their faces.
bluexy @ 01:34PM
Time for the first gameplay trailer!
bluexy @ 01:34PM
Adrian Peterson will be on the cover. Oof, that cover art looks real bad.
bluexy @ 01:34PM
bluexy @ 01:34PM
Through Ignite the gameplay is closer to NFL football than ever before.
bluexy @ 01:33PM
The "War in the Trenches" is now the offensive and defensive line. Linemen are now much more intention. They shift based on threats to create realistic running lanes.
bluexy @ 01:33PM
Player Sense feature allows players to react to the dynamic gameplay instantly, like jumping over a falling player.
bluexy @ 01:32PM
Smoothes gameplay yet. You can footplant, cut and shift momentum with precision.

bluexy @ 01:32PM
Madden 25 for both PS4 and Xbox One. All footage here is actual gameplay footage.
bluexy @ 01:32PM
Not the best trailer, just some basketball and some crowd cheering. Most of the audience had no idea who that guy was.
bluexy @ 01:31PM
Just look at all this data:

bluexy @ 01:31PM
I don't know what that means! There's a trailer though.
bluexy @ 01:31PM
It starts today, right here and right now.
bluexy @ 01:31PM
Kyrie is now telling us how he plots against his foes, to strike them with basketball vengeance. Or something about how NBA Live will get hourly updates on stats and data.

bluexy @ 01:30PM
They want the ball to feel unpredictable with "bounceTek"

bluexy @ 01:29PM
Kyrie Irving! Ah, he's reading off a script, the dear. I feel sorry for him, he can't act any better than Peter Moore.
bluexy @ 01:28PM
NBA Live 14 with NBA All-Star, um, I already forgot his name. Sorry.
bluexy @ 01:28PM
bluexy @ 01:27PM
It's poetry about video game basketball dribbling. Meta.
bluexy @ 01:27PM
We're watching some dribbiling, talked over by basketball poetry.
bluexy @ 01:27PM
Built on the Ignite engine, all games are for both PS4 and XONE.
bluexy @ 01:27PM
We've moved on to sports!
bluexy @ 01:26PM
Morrigan.

bluexy @ 01:26PM
This might be the real sequel we're looking for, everyone. The story the first game built up and left us waiting for.
bluexy @ 01:26PM
She's referencing a great evil. "Will you stand against him?" I hope that isn't who I think it is. Spoiler man from the first Dragon Age.
bluexy @ 01:25PM
Oh god, it is Morrigan.
bluexy @ 01:25PM
All sorts of great demons and dragons.
bluexy @ 01:25PM
Graphics look outstanding, but this could be CG.
bluexy @ 01:24PM
"Faith lies in ashes."
bluexy @ 01:24PM
Is that... is that Morrigan? I hear Morrigan.
bluexy @ 01:24PM
We get a first glimpse... "Fires Above" trailer!
bluexy @ 01:24PM
Fall of 2014.
bluexy @ 01:23PM
"Vast Open World"
bluexy @ 01:23PM
It's not "Dragon Age III"
bluexy @ 01:23PM
Dragon Age: Inquisition!
bluexy @ 01:23PM
Does the movie counts as one of the games?
bluexy @ 01:23PM
bluexy @ 01:23PM
Director says he's going to put you in the seat. Movie comes out in 2014.
bluexy @ 01:22PM
Authentic to real car racing culture. Sort of like Fast and Furious?
bluexy @ 01:22PM
Oh it's about the Need for Speed movie.

bluexy @ 01:21PM
Hey it's that guy from Breaking Bad. Aaron Paul.
bluexy @ 01:21PM
It looks like this guy might get away, ah, it turned into a cinematic before they finished the race. Anti-climatic.
bluexy @ 01:21PM
The racer is winning, but the police car just called in a helicopter.

bluexy @ 01:20PM
Basically, it's a 1v1 match, but with the AI it's team vs. team while a race is going on too. Whoa.
bluexy @ 01:20PM
Now the second player joins in as a police car, with a group of other AI cars supporting him.
bluexy @ 01:19PM
He's driving through the open world and join a race dynamically. The other cars appeared as if from nowhere.
bluexy @ 01:19PM
bluexy @ 01:18PM
They'll be showing two different players playing single-player games, but they will join each other dynamically.
bluexy @ 01:18PM
Mixing co-op, multiplayer and single player.
bluexy @ 01:18PM
Lots of police cars chasing fancy cars.
bluexy @ 01:17PM
bluexy @ 01:17PM
Need for Speed Rivals is on screen right now.
bluexy @ 01:16PM
We're on to cars now.
bluexy @ 01:16PM
NOOOO
bluexy @ 01:16PM
THAT WAS IT. SHOW ME MORE.
bluexy @ 01:16PM
Oh god it's Star Wars Battlefront.
bluexy @ 01:16PM
Oh god it's Star Wars.
bluexy @ 01:16PM
Next game is up. Snowy landscape, looks CGI. Bombs going off, of course.
bluexy @ 01:15PM
quote
"As good as these games are today, they'll keep getting better."
bluexy @ 01:15PM
Ignite and Frostbite 3. All games on are built on these engines.
bluexy @ 01:15PM
"Foundation of every game."
bluexy @ 01:14PM
EA is talking about software engines for the future of their games right now.
bluexy @ 01:14PM
Does Peggle count as one of the 11 games?
bluexy @ 01:14PM
Everything from a great single player game put into a multiplayer game.
bluexy @ 01:14PM
bluexy @ 01:13PM
Levels will scale for both pilots and titans. That means lots of open spaces for jumping along with plenty of room to move and leap off of walls.
bluexy @ 01:13PM
The Titans arent just lumbering hulks, they're fast and agile. The pilots just have to be smarter.
bluexy @ 01:12PM
bluexy @ 01:12PM
They want the world to be living and breathing.
bluexy @ 01:12PM
They want to make something that's not just a retread of FPS games.
bluexy @ 01:12PM
bluexy @ 01:12PM
bluexy @ 01:11PM
bluexy @ 01:11PM
Image starting of TitanFall action.
bluexy @ 01:11PM
bluexy @ 01:11PM
And the bro jets off the side of the stage. Now TitanFall takes the stage.
bluexy @ 01:10PM
Also coming this year... PEGGLE 2!
bluexy @ 01:10PM
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare -- it looks great!
bluexy @ 01:09PM
This is a lot like Dungeon Defenders, actually, with a priority on action rather than just tower building.
bluexy @ 01:09PM
Disco Zombies is doing some wild spinning moves. Uh oh, The Gargantuar just spawned and is attacking now.
bluexy @ 01:08PM
Also a sniper class and a brawler class. I wonder how many plants there will be in total. The "Boss Wave" is the disco zombie, though it's not the same as the MJ zombie.
bluexy @ 01:07PM
Sundflower is a healer!

bluexy @ 01:07PM
He plants a pea turret to help him defend against waves of zombies. Drops a chili bean to blow dudes up.
bluexy @ 01:06PM
It looks very clean, definitely not the same style as Plants vs. Zombies in the past. 3D just feels very... odd. The player is a Pea Shooter.
bluexy @ 01:06PM
We're going to take a look at 4-player cooperative survivor mode now.

bluexy @ 01:05PM
It's a multiplayer action title. Also, the guy introducing it is terrible with jokes.
bluexy @ 01:05PM
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a third person adventure game. WHAT IS THIS EVEN!?

bluexy @ 01:04PM
It's Plants vs. Zombies in 3D. I have no idea what's going on.
bluexy @ 01:04PM
We're staring with Garden Warfare!
bluexy @ 01:02PM
"Everything you see during this event is brand new code." 11 games, all for next-gen.
bluexy @ 01:02PM
Peter Moore takes the stage!
bluexy @ 01:02PM
Pretty tight electronic music. I bet everyone hates it.
bluexy @ 01:01PM
Now it's starting for real! Let's begin... The Download.
bluexy @ 01:00PM
Whoa, the music changed and I thought we were starting. It didn't actually start. What a twist!
bluexy @ 12:58PM
I'm actually just as excited to see what all this hubbub about Plants vs. Zombies 2 is. For a free to play game that's already announced, there's a lot of advertising and teasers going around.

bluexy @ 12:55PM
That comes from @BenKindrick via Twitter. What a great looking statue. Rivals the League of Legends ones I've seen that are awe-inspiring.
bluexy @ 12:53PM
Check out this great TitanFall mech sitting outside the EA press conference:

bluexy @ 12:49PM
Livestream is up, though it's just idling as the crowd fills in. Take a look:

bluexy @ 12:45PM
15 minutes to go! I haven't heard from @RabidChinaGirl, hopefully she made it inside.
bluexy @ 12:45PM
Maybe no Dragon Valley, but probably Dragon Age, right? The question is just how much of Dragon Age we'll see. I'd have figured it'd debut at Microsoft if it was super far into development.
bluexy @ 12:39PM
Just a bit more than 20 minutes until EA starts! Press is rolling in, seats are filling fast.
bluexy @ 12:23PM
About 40 minutes before the conference starts. Going to work on a bit more Microsoft news. Stay tuned, though! :D
bluexy @ 12:21PM
How about this? No? No The Sims 3: Dragon Valley? Whatever, if this isn't worth a showcase at EA's press conference I don't want any part of it:

bluexy @ 12:19PM
Definitely some of this:

bluexy @ 12:17PM
We can probably expect a little bit of this, you think?

bluexy @ 12:15PM
Alright! Chat should be up and running. :D
bluexy @ 12:13PM
Chat's a bit borked. Will let everyone know when it's up and running.
bluexy @ 12:04PM
Aha! just under an hour left until the show starts. Hopefully Lydia makes it in time!
