I believe M$ paid Spike to only cover M$ and EA conferences.

Gamespot, Twitch, and IGN all have streams up.

That would explain the lack of anything on Spike. But G4 is nothing but Xplay reruns, Cops, and Quantum Leap for the next few days.

Hmm, so there is no TV coverage of E3 this year except MS/EA for a couple hours earlier today on SpikeTV. For some reason G4 stepped out of the business... and apparently EA/MS only = E3 All Access Live.

Any programs I can setup on my computer to record live streams while I'm at work for my advertisement free viewing pleasure later?

This site http://www.e3countdown.com/ keeps track of all the conferences. They record and save them to be watched later, commercial free.

I considered G4 dead ever since Sessler was fired.

Why is every live stream I've seen so far, and still watching, all 100% Xbox? Where is the Sony information? And why is Ross's girlfriend from Barbados the host?

The rumors are that Microsoft paid publishers/developers to keep quiet about PS4, even if their game supports it. So unless they say "xbox exclusive", you can probably assume otherwise.

Sony's conference is later tonight.

So far nothing MS has put out there has convinced me even consider an Xbone purchase. Giving away some free games with Gold Live membership is nice, but it would be better if the games weren't ones that have been out for years. The only game I've seen so far that interests me is Dragon Age 3 and I'll be able to play that on PC. I might give Mirror's Edge 2 a look, but only if I ever get around to playing the original.

Well, I thought I could fire up one of my consoles and watch it on my TV through that. PS3 won't play the stream, 360 has IE behind the Gold paywall. Not sure if I should try my Wii or not...

I don't have a mini-HDMI so I can't get my PC out to my TV...

Edit:
That Darkwinter Tom Clancy's Division (or, pretty sure that's still the MMO thingy) definitely looks pretty.

I do not love the new art direction for the DA series. I do not love it at all. I hope it'll grow on me.

Also, I'm really bummed that they seem to have changed Morrigan's voice actress. Though, I guess the fact that this is taking place 15? years after DAO justifies her having a deeper voice. It could just be the same actress using a new inflection. You were never told Morrigan's age, but Alistair was about 20 in DAO, so it seems fair for Morrigan to be around the same at the time.

That said... Open world DA? And your choices will actively change the game environment? Hells to the f***ing yes.

Don't ***** me this time, BioWare...


They didn't change Morrigan's voice actress, it's still Claudia Black.

Yeah, I can hear it now that I'm watching a better quality trailer. I was watching it on a recorded livestream, and it was pretty rough. Didn't sound like her at all there.

Also, as someone just pointed out to me, regarding that crazy part of the trailer where the sky appears to rip open and meteors fall... "One day the magic will come back. All of it. Everyone will be just like they were. The shadows will part, and the skies will open wide. When he rises, everyone will see."

[EDIT]

I feel like, if they can pull the open-world style off, the game will be awesome. The DA lore is at a really great place for an open-world stab at things. You have many fleshed-out factions, and many approaches to the core concept of a war between Mages and Templars.

The Chantry has fragmented into factions, with the Templars no longer heeding the Revered Mother, and the Seekers being her branch of the Chantry (focused on trying to end the war, period, and more often targeting the Templars than Mages).

Mages have always been factional, but now there's no safe, solid ground for any of them to stand on. So that adds a lot of chaos to the fight. This isn't just a war between Templars and Mages, it's a war between many factions of Mages versus factions of Templars in independently spawning rebellions.

Add in the Qunari threat, the additional nations they've been working to really flesh out in the EU stuff, the new Orlesian Empress novel coming out, the changing state of Elves that has been brewing since DAO, quite a bit of new Dwarven stuff, red lyrium, etc.

There's a LOT they can work with. They just need to be willing to really go all the way with it, imo.

Apparently, in DA3, you're going to play as an Inquisitor (I'm guessing for the Seekers, which would make sense as they're the only big group I can think of that is actively at the middle of the conflict, and not on a sale). The game's basis is that the breach into the Fade that appears in the sky, presumably one massive tear in the veil, has appeared and you need to get there to see what the f*** is going on.

Also, rumor is that Sony is launching with 3 PS3 models, starting at $399.

General stuff: They're working on the new Mass Effect at Bioware Montreal. A new IP is being developed by Casey Hudson and co.

Frostbite is their new standard engine, which (in combination with the next gen), allows for more data-heavy games.

I imagine they'll be some sort of char gen tool for the PC that will let you make that particular choice.

That said, the situation in which you have to choose to kill him was actually well done, in my opinion. Anders blows up the Kirkwall Chantry, with no warning, and it causes Meredith to call on the Right of Annulment, even though the Circle Mages weren't even involved. That's the most significant spark for revolution.

So then you can either kill Anders as punishment, force him to fight with you (on whichever side of the conflict you choose), or banish him. He allows you to make that choice, as he feels his victims demand Justice.

Does a lot to justify killing him. My Hawke was in a relationship with him - still but a dagger in his heart.

I think they'll say little about the DRM, to avoid any backlash, letting MS take it all and slip it out later.

Even if it was a technical problem, there's an extremely good chance it would have nothing to do with Sony. Assuming this is like a normal trade show, the event hosts would be working in conjunction with their own vendors to provide most connections/services for the shows. So a huge part of the equation is completely out of Sony's control.

These are generally contract agreements made between the building owners/operators/relevant union leaders and the service providers. There's no going around them, and it gives the show operators a great deal of control they wouldn't otherwise have.

Imagine the **** of setting up the show if each major provider was doing whatever the **** they wanted, demanding excessive data/power connections, etc.?
