Its that time of year again where game companies continue to surprise/disappoint/enrage us at E3. In less than 1 week, we'll be able to see the future of gaming and its copious amounts of shooters, Kinect games, and continuing disappointment of no next-generation consoles (besides the Wii U). Here is the schedule.

E3 2012 Times

as well as an added bonus from Nintendo where they will have a Wii U hardware discussion on June 6 @ 2:30 AM ET (June 5 @ 11:30 PM PT) as well as their Software Roundtable being streamed live for the first time on June 6 @ 9 PM ET (6 PM PT).

What are you guys expecting from this year's E3? Will Microsoft show stuff that's not related to Kinect? Will Sony try to salvage the Vita with more games? Will the Wii U be better than current generation hardware? discuss.

I'll need something really spectacular to get excited this year. I'm not in a position to be dropping money and time for "meh" titles and consoles.

No. But I'm sure there will be a GTA5 trailer nonetheless.

Is anyone even that excited? I guess there's the potential for Nintendo to do something with the Wii U and 3DS, but by all accounts everyone else is going to be even more boring than usual.

Unless they actually announce next-generation consoles (which I doubt), I expect Microsoft and Sony's conference to be terrible and boring as usual. However, it's an even-numbered year so expect one of these conferences to be legendarily terrible (possibly Nintendo if the Wii U turns out to be a lackluster system).

FF7 remake, Shenmue 3, MML3 ressurected, Zone of the Enders 3. HALF LIFE 3. Guys I'm sure at least ONE of these has to make it. :cry: I don't really want an FF7 remake that much, as much as I want SE to do something good again. Their first FF last-gen was awful and had an awful sequel, just like this gen, but the non-online follow up was awesome, they need to repeat that this gen.

This, and they almost always are every year. I'm looking forward to seeing some game demos, playthroughs, write ups, etc on some upcoming games. Maybe some funny gifs. That's it.

No I think getting excited for conferences are worse. Why the hell is anyone excited to hear jack tretton, that microsoft guy(I only remember Shane Kim and Peter Moore), or Reggie speak? Or Iwata? That mother f*cker can't speak english. He does not belong on stage. Keep Reggie he speaks the f*cking language.

The rest of the conferences are filled with numbers, stats, pr nonsense, something about hardware projections, casual audience stuff that never appeals to the forum gamer anyway, and on stage demos. Which usually consist of sequels, stuff we already know about, or flashy stuff meant to look good for a E3 conference. It's rarely as interesting as the stuff the media ends up uploading. I'd much rather see all the gameplay walkthroughs on gametrailers or the more detailed demos they'll show on gamespot.

I don't want to see a trailer of a game they never announced before. That doesn't entertain me. Sure there might be an exception(like oh my god Beyond Good and Evil 2 actually exists), but outside of those exceptions who gives a sh1t? They didn't show the game being played. The conferences are, were, and will forever be boring nonsense with some saving grace games here and there in between.

That and watching IRC act mad stupid over the smallest of news is highly entertaining. Jechtshot going megaton every 5 second that one year to annoy everyone was pure 100% gold.

This, the gifs, and the meltdowns (FFXIII on 360 created hilarious reactions) are the best part about E3.

Aside from upcoming gifs, meltdowns, and hopefully surprises, the only thing I care about now is Nintendo's conference. I'm not sure I am really expecting anything "Amazing" from MS or Sony because I feel like it will be what we expect already, unless they tease/unviel a new console, which they said they won't. Kinect games, Black Ops and Halo 4 demos, and either some exclusive 3rd party DLC/Timed exclusive, a few XBLA games montage, and one "mystery" tease/game possibly. Either Epic's new game, Gears spinoff/DLC, or what have you. Then MS will give away something for everyone. :P

Sony's conference will probably show off more demos of The Last of Us, God of War Ascension, and some other games exclusive to their platforms, I expect some upcoming sequels/prequels to be announced in their other IP category, their Smash Bros. game demoed, a few PS Vita montages, and them trying to make it seem like Vita is in for a good year, when it probably won't be. 

Nintendo's really is the only one to interest me, because either they hit it off big or completely fizzle out. I admit, I'm excited for the Wii U, and having some hands on time with it, has made me want to have more with it. I will be buying it Day 1 already, that's a guarantee, but I can still expect them to really not do strong. If they don't show off a strong line-up for the launch/launch window, no Nintendo exclusives, no 3rd party support, and completely leave the online format in the dark for us who want to know, I will no doubt consider it a bad showcase. They need to reveal everything. 

I know price won't be, and that's a shame really, but if they can build up the excitement for the system, but showing off what we are to expect with it's new controller, online structure, and most importantly games, then I will consider it a moderate success. They also need to show me the 3DS has momentum.

I would like to hear announcements of 3DS/Wii U connectivity, online accouns being synced from Wii U and 3DS, some new updates that will add features, like hopefully cross messaging/inbox system. Swapnote is fun, but I just want to send a quick game invite/text message to a friend too. I hope to see more stuff on the eShop actually, it's been a little dry there lately. It's had some great games, and has been strong lately, but it is starting to fizzle down a bit. 

Lastly, I just want to see games. More strong third party support is also appreciated, and more games in the future with more release dates for those we've been hearing about already like Luigi's Mansion, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, etc.

So, do people in the West Coast get everything shown on TV time delayed, or do they get it at the same time as us, meaning a lot earlier than us?

Depends, if it's happening here on the West Coast in CA, there won't be a time delay for the coverage, they haven't before, and it makes no sense to do so I think. However, live stuff is time delayed in general in America, ever since the "warddrobe malfunction" happened on live tv. As for most other things, we don't normally get them early, they just show it to us later, three hours later in your case.

This is only because the last 2 years were completely spoiled a month before the actual conferences.

I for one, am looking forward to having some surprises this year. (hopefully)

There's less than 10 days until the E3 conferences start, with Konami probably having another recorded video being released on May 31. Get hyped for those Kinect games!

There was a stigma at one time that I was a huge Sony fanboy just because I called MS out a bunch for their BS at the time, so people like Game thought I was serious when I did this during the Sony Conference.

Funny how a few years later, and a few more upgraded PCs and you suddenly have most of the union calling MS sh1t.
