[E3] E3 Day One Highlights Part One

15 07 2008

Okay, so we’re going to cut to the finer points and highlights of day one for you so that you don’t have to read through all the other stuff to get to the good parts.

Fallout 3

  • For those of you who have Xbox Live, you can download the new trailer that was debuted at E3 sometime soon.
  • You have the option of switching between both first & third person views.
  • The Pipboy 3000 can be used to listen to radio stations during the game.
  • The “Voltech Assisted Targeting System” is available so that you can queue up attacks on enemies rather than the manual aiming and firing.
  • The game is based in Washington D.C. and will have over 100 hours of gameplay.
  • There will be exclusive downloadable content for the Xbox 360

Resident Evil 5

  • Online co-op has been confirmed for the entire game.
  • Game will release on March 13th, 2009 (which also happens to be a Friday…)
  • Teamwork will be essential to get through the game.
  • If you do not have a friend playing with you, the AI will take control of the second character.

Fable 2

  • Online co-op has finally been confirmed.
  • Fable 2 is pretty much finished and will be out sometime in October.
  • Ambient orbs allow you to invite your friends in to your world when you come across them at any time.  They can also leave at anytime as well.

Gears Of War 2

  • Flamethrower is introduced (this could be very interesting).
  • New 5 player co-op feature is revealed…called Horde, in which you and 4 other buddies fight off wave after wave of Locust.
  • NO four player campaign was announced…which saddens us tremendously.
  • Gears of War 2 will be coming out November 7th.

Xbox Live Arcade Games

  • Geometry Wars 2 Retro Evolved was announced supporting 4 players.
  • Galaga Legions will be released in August.
  • Portal Still Alive was announced as XBL exclusive and will be available sometime this fall.
  • A South Park XBL title was announced….no details on it yet though.
  • The original Banjo Kazooie will be coming to XBL sometime soon.


  • It’s been rumored for quite a while, but now it’s official.
  • The game will allow you to import songs from your iPod & Zune to use on the game.  Which makes it the first game ever to allow that.
  • The microphone is wireless and it has tilt functions. 
  • It also had LED lights on the side that will light up while singing. 
  • According to how you sing the microphone will light up accordingly.
  • The game will come with songs from different genres.
  • Duffy will be a featured artist on the game.   Her song “Mercy” will more than likely be on there considering she sang it during the games debut.

Microsoft and Sony’s conferences were great, but Nintendo’s was pure crap.

I didn’t think too much of Sony’s and I’m a Sony “fanboy”. Microsoft stole the show completely in my opinion.
