Alright, so I missed Nintendo's presentation this morning but caught most of Sony's. From what I've seen on the Nintendo side of things, some fairly good stuff was presented, two new Mario platformers, a new Metroid game set before the rest of the series, etc. I would say it was an average showing, nothing much caught my attention after Mario and Samus.
Sony had some neat things to show off, including a 256 man multiplayer Shooter called Mag. Nice to finally see a console developer realize that holding people to 10-16 man multiplayer matches in this day and age, when PC servers exist with hundreds of players and MMORPGs flourish, is aiming pretty low.
Watching Uncharted 2 made me wonder something that has occurred to me as I've watched E3. When did the shooter become the default genre for every game? Metroid? Shooter. Uncharted 2? Shooter. Alan Wake? It looks like a shooter.
When did every game suddenly require an automatic weapon?
