It's not really a contest. Demon's Souls, duh... :cool:
Conquest (PC). An old PC game, before the makers of Risk could be bothered to create a video game. Conquest, my friends, is from pre-Internet era, when we used to have to pack up our PCs for networking parties. And we had to walk seven miles in the snow. :P
Looks fan-freakin-tastic to me. I love the Castlevania series, period, and I really don't care how this one does or does not stay within the confines of someone's preconceived notion of what a Castlevania game should be. Whatever this game is, it's freakin' awesome. Day-1 buy. The stage demo from E3 showed off all I needed to see.
If you want something specifically for searching for games on your phone, I'd recommend both GameFinder and AppShopper. GameFinder will allow you to sift through games based on review scores from Slide to Play, and App Shopper will let you see what's popular, free, and also let you put games on a wishlist for when their prices drop.
I've been enjoying Magic Tree for a bit. It's not a complete Harvest Moon-type game -- more Harvest Moon meets Cityville -- it's very endearing, and I never felt the need for IAP. It's F2P, and the social elements are easy to get into.
I can definitely see Mario 3DS being playable at E3, but I think it's going to be Mario Kart 3DS for this holiday, and perhaps Mario 3DS in the spring. I really doubt they'd throw both out at the same time, though.
If it's anything like the PS3 version, the backgrounds should be real-time 3D (polygonal) graphics. Haven't really checked out much of the 3DS version, though. I just don't feel the need to have a handheld version, since I already own it on a console where I can play it with a fighting stick.
