Powetcast 122: Not At #E3

It happens every year. We talk about going to E3, then we don’t go. Luckily enough of E3 get streamed online and shown on TV that all we miss really are the long lines.

Zac, Adam, and Cap dissect as much of the show as possible. We’ll talk about what impressed and depressed. And for some reason, we talk about Battleship too.

If you want to catch up on on E3 yourself, try out our roundup.
In honor of the transition of metal to dub step in every single action game trailer, the outro music is Killing In The Name Of SebastiAn

E3 2012: Is ‘Watch Dogs’ Next Gen?


Microsoft and Sony were very careful to announce ‘no new hardware’ before E3, and stuck to that promise. Nothing shown at either of their press events was for anything other than the devices that are already out on the market. The closest thing Xbox has to hardware launch right now is a Windows 8 tablet running Smart Glass.

But other publishers show games too.

Ubisoft wowed audiences and critics with a demo of Watch Dogs. Graphically amazing, but also implying a depth of gameplay and sandbox options above and beyond what their own Assassin’s Creed series is capable of. The demo was played on stage using an Xbox 360 controller, but Ubisoft confirmed later that it was a PC version of the game we’d seen.

Ubisoft clearly has a hit on their hands, and usually a game like this gets showcased at a hardware maker’s show. Why would Microsoft pass on Watch Dogs and take Splinter Cell? Easy, Splinter Cell shows a game running on XBox 360, and Watch Dogs won’t look like the demo we saw on Xbox 360.

Ubisoft says the release date for Watch Dogs is beyond 2012. If new hardware (aside from Wii U) does launch in 2013, Watch Dogs could be an important launch title. We’ve been assured that the game will come out on PS3 and XBox 360, but it isn’t hard to think back to 2005/2006 when games like Tomb Raider Legend and Gun launched on PS2 and Xbox with HD versions on PS3 and Xbox 360.



E3 2012: Castlevania Lords of Shadow “Mirror of Fate” Trailer Released

So a week and 1/2 ago, I posted about the supposed new Nintendo DS game that was primed to be an interquel between Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Lords of Shadow 2, titled “Mirror of Fate”. Lot of speculation began flying around communities about what the game possibly could be about, and that the names “Trevor” and “Simon” Belmont were being heavily dropped.

Seems a lot of that speculation was true, according to the trailer released by Konami at E3 this week.
