Short and sweet for today.
Last Friday I flew up to Auckland – the city of sails – to get some hands on time with EA’s upcoming games for the next few months: Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, Need for Speed: The Run, Sims Pets and Fifa 12.
Of those games, Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3 are the ones that captured my attention the most – I really couldn’t care less about Fifa 12, Need for Speed or Sims Pets – so my time was spent guiding Commander Shepard, in Mass Effect 3, and controlling Sgt Henry Blackburn, a 1st Recon Marine, in Battlefield 3. I played one game of Fifa 12 with Austin “Wugga” Sedgwick from Buttonmasher: it was a nil all draw with penalty shootouts delivering a result (I lost one nil).
So, on Tuesday, I spoke about the EA showcase with Glenn “Wammo” Williams. You can watch it up the top of the post.
Leave a comment on what you think. Go on. It’ll give me something to read later on tonight.
Oh, I’m playing through the HD revamps of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus at the moment. I’ll write my thoughts up later this week.
