This year's down-sized Electronic Entertainment Expo had a few nice things to show. These are the games I'm mostly looking forward to (in order of hotness!) :
Wii Fit - Comes together with a balance board!!! Too bad I can't do push-ups... Finally! Some costless yoga! It's so "classy"! Who isn't expecting this? Nice leg cramps and lumbagos everyone!
Super Mario Galaxy - The senile moustached plumber from Italy can turn into a ghost and a cutsie-wutsie bee! Plus, graphics the Wii doesn't have to be ashamed of! At last!
LittleBigPlanet - The physics-based mechanics of this little PS3 gem and its adorable backdrops, characters, tools and stuff outshine my fear of not knowing how the heck it's going to play after you create your stage. Don't care that much. I always loved Play-Doh and Lego. Trial and error platform gaming I'd call it. With tons of creativity! Certainly a system-seller for me.
Silent Hill V - Yeap, Konami is going to release the sequel to its brilliantly disturbing series in 2008 for the X360 and PS3. Not much of a trailer this one, not even a teaser, but I can't wait! I always loved this franchise. You play an ex-marine who's in search for his sole friend in life, his brother, after they both lost their mother. Wonder where he might have ended up... Right, you guessed it. In our lovely town of Silent Hill!
Metal Gear Solid 4 - The last in the series said Kojima. That's what he had said for #2 and #3 as well. Also, a PS3 exclusive (woo-hoo! It's like a miracle! The PS3 getting a hold of an exclusive, for real!). Anything can change of course... Till 2008, when you'll be dancing with blades and bullets together with long lost friends... Fox-Die never does kill...
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure - Capcom's take on the Wii, with a puzzle-solving adventure for all ages. Use what you find to proceed through dangerous environments in your search for treasure as pirate-kid Zack!
