I am just wrapping up watching all of the coverage I recorded from G4 and I wasn't all that impressed...
There were some good interviews and the press conferences (that weren't spectacular) and that was just about it.
I'm sure there is a lot to see if you go (like the SHOT show), but it seems to me that G4 dedicated a little too much airtime to it so it was probably a lot of filler.
I dl'ed a lot through the xbox, got the sony stuff from IGN. The G4 show was useless except for the eye candy, and I say that grudgingly.
I'm pretty pumped for the game line-up this Fall. I just wish this holiday crash stuff would stop. How the hell does anyone not making Halo3, COD4, or GTA4 think they are going to sell crap this Fall? SOOO many of those games could have had a nice full life in the spring or summer but will be forgotten in the fall rush. FOUR frikking RPGs (Blue Dragon, Mass Effect, Eternal Sonata, Lost Odyssy, plus Two worlds next month), god knows how many FPSs, Company of Heroes, Splinter Cell, Assasins Creed, Ace Combat 6, it just goes on and on. Not to mention the couple of decent looking PS3 games, though it seems most of their heavy hitters are coming next year.
I have yet to look at anything on the Wii aside from Wiifit. It just seems too gimmicky, though the wand action in Harry Potter seems kinda cool.
Hopefully MS will roll out their '08 stuff at another show, and it better have more than Alan Wake, Too Human, Fable 2, and Halo Wars (all of which I bet will be next holiday). Heck, why aren't we getting the new chapters of Gears? Sony seems to have a lot riding on MSG4, Little Big Planet, and Killzone 2. I'm not sold on MSG4 or KZ2, and I suspect LBP will be quickly censored beyond belief when timmy downloads the porn level, but it would be nice to see some counter-shots from MS.
Though I suppose the arcade is really going to explode, since it appears to be profitable and the raising of the size barrier has really let devs go crazy. Undertow, War Worlds, and Wing Commander arena look fantastic.
I personally could care less about UT3 or Haze (yet MORE FPSs?) but it seems like they will be the big spring titles on the 360, after debuting on the PC and PS3. I guess they will get Bioshock at that point (perhaps).
All that matters are the releases of Halo3, COD4 and GTA IV!!
