I'm totally with you on Tomb Raider, Scarecrow. That and Popo & Yo really grabbed my attention.

And am I the only one who thinks Laura is infinently more attractive now that she looks like a human being rather than a porn star? (Little known fact: Porn stars are not human beings. They are aliens from the planet Eroticon 6)

She's way too dirty in these videos to be attractive. I'm kidding. FINALLY. After years of slowly toning her back. Lara looks like a human being, someone you could actually know, I'm very happy about this. Also happy about the stellar voice acting. Whoever is doing Lara, is really putting her all into it. Nice to see that the days of half-assed readings being the norm are behind us.

And yet this could destroy all revenue from current Tomb Raider fans who are in it for the tits.

I really don't understand that thought process. If Tomb Raider is all about the titillation for most fans than why play a video game when there is so much porn out there?

I think that the game will sale well enough though. It has a bit of a Dead Space or Resident Evil vibe. Only instead of Necromorphs and Zombies Lara is fighting crazy people and the elements. I guess I'm saying is that survival games sell well. A survival game starring gaming's most famous piece of eye candy, even if she has been "reduced" (I'd say ascended) to that of a normal woman, is going to be a no-brainer for a lot of gamers.

Is that an actual argument or one of those "I don't have anything" statements? I really hope it's the latter. Either way its dumb.

And yes, Bropiphany, that bothered me too. I need innovation, and while that can happen within IPs (See: RE4, Shattered Memories, etc.) I'd like to see something completely new.

There were a few titles that innovated within, and a few new games. I really recommend looking up Popo & Yo. Also most of the tech demos for the Wii U were interesting and new. You could probably find the hands on at IGN. There was also that Magic Move Game, I can't remember what it was called, and the new game by Insomniac, though thats a FPS so I'm skeptical.

And games that look to do new things with their series... Tomb Raider, as mentioned.

Also, The new Resident Evil for 3DS and the new Super Mario are doing an interesting job of combining the old and the new.

I don't watch pressers anymore, they're terribly dull. I just let the news trickle down in the aftermath. Easier that way.

I loved the first game. Been waiting for a sequel since. Been waiting a long long time.

I'm out. There's no hope in consoles left in this generation. I'll keep buying games on my 360 until I can get a decent PC. But I'm tuning out the big three's pressers until MS or Sony have new systems to show.
I can help you find computer part on the web for a good price and help save a ton of money, but you'll have to construct it yourself (If you don't know you can look up step by step video on how to do it).

Pikmin 3 was just announced as a launch or near-launch title for Wii U. It wasn't supposed to be, but Miyamoto wanted to so he did.

"I made most of you bitches rich. Be glad I didn't tell the whole world about how Mario is actually gay... Actually I'm saving that for my tell all autobiography but just know, I built this castle. and I will burn it to the ground motherfuckers! Then you can go look for your princess in the charred remains!"

This is way better then last year!

I'm excited/interested about:

Bioshock Infinite

Rayman Origins

Far Cry 3 (but I'll wait and see, I didn't like the CODyness of that trailer... getting points on screen for killing NPCs, what an immersion breaker)

Battlefield 3 (I probably won't buy it, but I'm hoping it beats COD)

Silent Hill Downpour (There's the remotest chance that it won't suck, and if it doesn't, it will be awesome)

Kinect Sports 2 (Hahahaha no.)

Spec Ops The Line (Terrible name asside, it doesn't actually look to bad)

Farrer told me that while playing EVE Online on the server where DUST was being tested, he saw some activity on a planet as he was flying by it in space. He got close to the planet and looked close, and he see the combat raging below, and got a sudden message in his chat box: β€œHello!” It was the Dust player on the surface of the planet who had seen his ship above him in the sky and sent a message of greeting. Let me state that in simple terms: a PC EVE Online player flying a space ship could see and communicate with a PS3 player shooting on the ground of the planet.

But PC players won’t be sitting idly by as the grunts on the ground duke it out for control. Spaceships will be able to bombard the battlefield from orbit, but they’ll have to duke it out with the other ships that will be looking to bombard from orbit as well. But the ground grunts don’t have to take it lying down. They’ll be able to fire back at orbitting ships with massive anti-ship turrets on the battlefield.

I honestly can't say I'm looking forward to much. The Wii U looks extremely gimmicky, and there's been more updates than announcements.
