Alright, our exams are over, and we have 70 days of blissful summer to enjoy. And you know what that means…Updates! Regular, glorious updates for our starved fans that have clutched onto this sporadically renewed website.

Said updating shall begin soon enough, whenever Tristan finishes his editing on the new episode, but until then, I shall give you my thoughts on Sony’s E3 conference.

As far as it goes, I would have to say that Sony was on par with Microsoft. Natal just beat Sony’s motion controller, at least as far as marketing potential goes, and Sony’s future game lineup was superior to Microsoft’s.

Don’t agree with me? Tough luck, I’m the one with all of the writing privileges!

I mean, Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Final Fantasy XIV (Yes, it’s on the PC, but whatever), Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (If Metal Gear Solid: Rising is canon, I’ll eat a hat), Agent, Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines, Fat Princess, and the list could go on.

A special mention goes out to Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, because it will, like all of the R&C games, be amazingly good.

I suppose that the main thing about Sony’s conference was the motion sensing controller. I’m all for it, even if it is a blatant attempt to jump on the back of Nintendo’s money-making bandwagon. However, they wish to actually use said motion sensing technology to its full potential, which I am happy to see.

The accuracy is second-to-none, and with the additional processing power of the PS3, the sky’s the limit. What we saw was a tech demo, and it was just that, a tech demo, but throw in some gameplay elements beyond firing a bow, and Sony will be on to a winner. Providing that they can incorportate a method for the player character to move about, of course.
