It's hard for me to contrast the hype surrounding a trade show from one year to the next. Mostly I expect it's because everything changes year to year: the industry climate, the hardware, and the message that each company is trying to send. 

In 2013, the buzz was focused on next-gen hardware and consoles as media centers.  In retrospect, I walked away from the media blitz with sense that I was expected to watch more YouTube over the holidays while I waited for all the games I wanted to play.  After today, I feel like I'm expected to feel something, anything, while I play all the new games I waited for last year.

There were plenty of highs and lows throughout "Day Zero," the affectionately named parade of AAA media briefings before the official start of E3.  While none of what I saw today was particularly unexpected, the traditional miasma of hype and controlled verbiage was surprisingly easy to cut through this year.  It's likely that savvy gamers quickly recognized exactly what it was the big developers wanted to trigger: an emotional reaction, pure and simple.

Microsoft

Microsoft, especially, wanted to sell this angle.  Kicking off the show, Xbox welcomed E3 attendees with open arms.  I half expected Phil Spencer to greet everyone at the door with a big hug, but I expect he was busy backstage, carefully arranging the lineup of shirts he would frantically swap between sets (no disrespect, I applaud his dedication).

Everything, it seems, was designed to resonate with the audience; from spliced-in snippets of developers sharing their cherished gaming memories, to announcing the Halo Master Chief Collection and footage of well-loved Halo 2 multiplayer, all polished up and shiny.  Top it all off with the indy nod from ID @ Xbox and launch of Xbox Feedback, and it's clear that Microsoft wanted everyone to remember two things: that they haven't forgotten about games, and that they are listening to players.

EA

EA's typical sports-heavy presentation carried a lot of this emotional weight as well, with much talk about new, expressive camera systems and a lineup of slow motion, ballad-dubbed trailers.  Even the trailer for EA Sports UFC was heavy with sentimentality for the legacy of Bruce Lee with his in-game appearance.

Ubisoft

Interestingly, Ubisoft presented a fairly no-nonsense approach to their announcements, though there were plenty of feels handed out.  Backed by a litany of Aisha Tyler's self-deprecating humor and rampant enthusiasm, Ubisoft walked us through the best that the coming year has to offer from their various studios.

From the tension-wracked opening scene of Far Cry 4, to the massive community prevalent in Just Dance 2015, Ubisoft opened strong, and ended even stronger with a heart-wrenching depiction of World War I in Valiant Hearts.

Much of this carried on through the devastating story trailer revealed for The Division and the powerful imagery of revolutionary France in Assassin's Creed: Unity.  The larger part of Ubisoft's presentation seemed focused on the community and multiplayer aspect of their upcoming games.  They confirmed a 4-player campaign co-op option for Unity, and Just Dance 2015 revealed a smartphone-powered mobile aspect to be released with the game. 

Bundle that with multiplayer tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Siege and competitive workout title Shape Up, and it's clear that Ubisoft intends to bring everyone together to play their games.

Sony

Wrapping up Day Zero was the Sony Playstation conference, as intent as its counterpart in reminding us that their games are near and dear to our hearts. 

Opening with more footage of Destiny and the anticipated The Order: 1886, they were quick to move on to more familiar, comfortable territory by announcing Little Big Planet 3; revealing not only four new lovable avatars to control, but the inclusion of all generated content from every earlier LBP game.  Sony's presentation, it seems, was eager to target nostalgia with the announcement of Grim Fandango, a remaster of the Tim Schafer classic. 

Also, a long line of new content from the indy developers with whom, Sony was determined to remind us, they have a long and storied relationship with.  Interspersed throughout the show were letters, read by the presenters as coming from various forums like Reddit or NeoGaf, highlighting the strong connections that PlayStation has to its fans.

The Sony conference was, as most of the day's presentations, somewhat light on announcements that hadn't already been made.  A few hardware announcements like PlayStation TV, and a brief teaser of a Powers TV series that would début on PS4, the announcements centered around gameplay footage ofBatman: Arkham Knight and Mortal Kombat Xplus trailers for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Uncharted 4, though few details surfaced for any of these beyond their respective trailers.

Looking back on "Day Zero," part of me is a bit disappointed that much of what we saw was merely confirmation of things previously announced, and that we will likely see in much more detail at later shows.  Still, despite the reserve that the big developers had for discussing the finer points of their biggest titles, I can't help but feel relatively uplifted. 

The coming year is shaping up as a great one overall for game releases.  More importantly than that, it looks to be a year where the people making these games focus not so much on the hardware and apps they can throw at us, but on how we actually engage with our games.  The closer they look at what we really feel when we play, they can't help but really understand what players want.  Here's looking forward to a great Expo, and a great year.

New Dark Souls II Trailer: Dissecting the "Curse" https://www.gameskinny.com/w8p8t/new-dark-souls-ii-trailer-dissecting-the-curse https://www.gameskinny.com/w8p8t/new-dark-souls-ii-trailer-dissecting-the-curse Thu, 16 Jan 2014 14:42:07 -0500 Destrolyn.Bechgeddig

A new trailer for upcoming hardcore horror title, Dark Souls II, is out and it has everyone a twitter. With only three months left until the game's release, this is the first trailer to actually touch upon any of the story and lore behind this whole new adventure.

So what is Bandai Namco letting (or not letting) on about the dark secrets that this game holds? We'll dissect the trailer and ruminate about what the "Curse" could be, and what's actually going on in this three-minute flurry of sight and sound.

Dissection

"Perhaps you've seen it. Maybe in a dream? A murky, forgotten land..."

New Jersey?

It's not a great start to a game where the main character keels over and lays with their fingers twitching on the ground. However, here's where things get interesting. As the narrator tells us that "souls may heal your ailing mind," our hero seems to get up and feels absolutely fine despite their rather dramatic tumble. Hmmm.

So is this great kingdom once ruled by a great king (who didn't own a thesaurus by the sounds of things) called "Dragon Lake?" Old ladies are irritatingly mumbly. Not to mention there's a complete absence of any lake in this shot. But it's actually "Drangleic." Either way, we gather this is where we're going. Lets hope those wyverns are friendly. Everybody sing now, "There's a wyrm at the bottom of my garden..."

Now here's where things start to get interesting. The next bit of text that follows reads in full:

"Bearer of the curse, seek misery.
Till this frail hope shatters.
Lest this land swallow you whole.
As it has so many others."

We've now learnt that our hero suffers from a curse (not surprising seeing as the title of the trailer is "Cursed"). But it also seems that we're not the only one that have attempted this journey before. Is there a treasure or a prize that we're after? But what of this curse?

"...Seek Misery"

It seems that the game knows that we'll all be dying a lot, much like in the original Dark Souls. But it's clear that this curse is not a cheery one, unless you particularly enjoy dying over and over again. So the game seems to already expects us to die a lot, and thus forms an integral part of the plot. It's certainly different from the usual gaming approach of, "We see you died there, but lets pretend that didn't happen and carry on as usual."

"Lest This Land Swallow You Whole, As It Has So Many Others"

This is the most intriguing part of the verse. The lines suggest that the curse is the only thing that will prevent our hero from failing. Talk about piling on the pressure!

The next shot is of a lone figure walking around the overgrown and crumbling remains of a large fortification or citadel. Let's face it, this will probably the closest we'll ever get to The Last Guardian.

The balance of music over voice acting at this point is all wrong, making it difficult to figure out the narration during this shot of this guy and his really hot (literally) body. The best we can make of it is:

"Man will never be forgiven. He shall sleep."

Or

"The mad will never be forgiven. We shall see."

The next bit of text is gives us something a bit more solid, and leads towards what we think is a very definite answer to what this curse entails. It's followed by the return of mumbly old woman, again with the sound balance a bit score-heavy. But she seems to enforce what we think, as we're pretty sure she's saying:

"We are undead. We'll never be [no idea]. You'll go horribly instead. You can't be one of them."

The next bit of voice-over is much clearer, but it doesn't really tell us anything surprising.

"You need to beat the beast."

We're assured this isn't a euphemism.

In the next bit of voice over, it seems the old lady has suddenly taken a crash course in diction and the orchestra has received an Anti-Social Behaviour Order for noise nuisance.

"Your wings will burn in anguish, time after time. For that is your fate. The fate of the cursed."

Again, this makes a very direct reference to amount of player death that will be in this game.

Conclusion

We think that the curse is that of immortality: you can't die. This is what sets you apart from others who have breached Drangleic unsuccessfully. Trawling through both indecipherable and indecipherable text and voice acting, it's hard to come to any different conclusion.

But the real enigma is the vagueness surrounding the game's lore. Sure, your need to go and fell some grave monstrosity as your ultimate goal, but which one out of the myriad adversaries reeled off during the trailer's three minutes is it? There is something more than that, right?

  • Is the purpose of your excursion to rid yourself of the curse so you can finally rest in peace?
  • Is there a threat to the rest of the world if this beast isn't beaten?
  • Is Drangleic hiding some sort of mystic prize?

To add misery to mystery, Andi Ewington's statement that the prequel comic book won't touch on any lore won't solve things either, despite the gradual release of its pages leading up to the title's release.

The trailer, even if somewhat obtuse, still piques a real excitement for what looks like an astonishing follow-up to Dark Souls.

Dark Souls II will be released in March 2014. For more information, visit www.darksoulsii.com.

The Mill At Bat For Both Playstation 4 And Xbox One https://www.gameskinny.com/itx8h/the-mill-at-bat-for-both-playstation-4-and-xbox-one https://www.gameskinny.com/itx8h/the-mill-at-bat-for-both-playstation-4-and-xbox-one Fri, 15 Nov 2013 14:20:49 -0500 GabrielKross

As well all know, the Playstation 4 launched last night. If you missed the live event, there are several recaps and news releases floating around. There was even an announcement about the return of Uncharted.

Did you know, the company that did the Greatness Awaits trailers also did the Xbox One Invitation trailer? That's not all, they've also done at least one Nintendo trailer, according to their demonstration video. You can catch a small glimpse of Pikmin mixed in with everything else.

"Based in London, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago we collaborate on award-winning moving image, design and digital projects for the advertising, games and music industries." From The Mill's official website.

Here is the demonstration video that The Mill put together.

If you know what you're looking for, you can see many video games covered. So what happens if the PS4 and Xbox One flop? Does The Mill care? I doubt it, they've already made their mark with amazing videos. I mean seriously, the video in the header is genius. Take a look at the Invitation video they made.

Even this video was done right.

It doesn't matter which company they are putting trailers out for. In the end they all have amazing quality. Whether Next-Gen hits it big or hits a wall, The Mill has done their part to entice gamers.

Ryse Videos Discuss Story and Morals https://www.gameskinny.com/j4z24/ryse-videos-discuss-story-and-morals https://www.gameskinny.com/j4z24/ryse-videos-discuss-story-and-morals Fri, 18 Oct 2013 00:25:27 -0400 J Nicole Miller

Ryse: Son of Rome is an upcoming game for the Xbox One. As the name implies, it is set in ancient Rome. To say that the trailers that have been released so far are brutal and bloody would be an understatement. However, the game will not be just fight after fight. It will have a plot that is character-driven.

The trailers show off the game’s incredibly realistic and accurate style while revealing some of the story. Marius Titus is the main character, and one of the trailers delves into his story to show exactly what wrongs sparked his thirst for vengeance.

After finding his family slaughtered, Marius wants revenge, so he sets out to get it. However, in an article on GameSpot, Peter Gornstein, Crytek's director of cinematics, is quoted as saying that Marius “[struggles] with emotions” throughout his quest. With such a three-dimensional main character, morals and ethics will most certainly play a role in the story, bringing an effective shot of realism to Ryse.

*Calculated by YouTube views at 0730 EST June 11. Where possible, the order of these videos were calculated by official publisher upload viewing figures. Taking into account all of the duplicates and re-uploads would likely change the results entirely, but just roll with it and enjoy them all.

\n

I'm pretty sure when America wakes up, the numbers will all change anyway.

\n

UPDATE: Trailers added after initial calculation: Halo 5, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Deus Ex: The Fall, inFAMOUS Second Son, Destiny, The Order: 1886, Mad Max, The Elder Scrolls Online, Tom Clancy's The Division: Dark Winter and The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot (which doesn't really qualify but made me laugh).
