So it has ended. This was a very nice E3 for PCgaming, lots of announcements, lots of cool footage(have you seen the Supreme Commander nuclear explosions? WOW!!!). I was disappointed by poor PC coverage on Gamespot and other big sites, but other smaller European sites provided me with what I needed. So what was my favorite game of this E3?
Battle Lord easily.
The game caught my attention because it's being made by the team who created the incredible Space Rangers2, I loves SR2 so I was interested in BattleLord before I even learned anything specific about it. And when I finally did... I was amazed. Here we have fantasy game that plays like a mix of classic turn-based strategy game like Heroes of Might and Magic and a typical roleplaying game. So in Battlelord you walk around the world, solve quests, upgrade your character etcm, but then the whole combat system is handled like in HoMM series, by complex turn-based system. You can recruit armies, heroes etc. Heck... you can even have a wife and kids.
Somebody called Battlelord a "Kings Bounty for next-generation". It's a great way to put it. I've waited for such game for so many years. It looks incredibly fun
If you want to learn more about it I recommend
movies- slow download(10KB/s limit, but it's worth it, trust me)
And a bit more about E3. THe best CG trailer this year was easily
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos
Digic Pictures has taken the CG king crown from BLUR and blizzard
other great CG trailers for you to download are:
WarhammerOnline- I guess Warhammer has good luck for amazing CGs
and for other lesser known stuff from E3 that I really recommend to download(with all this SPORE/ MGS4 hype it's easy to overlook some real gems)
