Now it's time to talk about The Sims. With the recent expansion pack, The Sims 3 Ambitions, The Sims are even more involved. They can now take jobs, improve their skills, help out their neighbors and do business with them, and even change their town entirely, for better or for worse. These free-willed characters are becoming unpredictable to the point that not even the developers know what will happen anymore. What we did know is The Sims 3 is no longer just a PC game, as it's also coming out for consoles in October, including new features, accessibility for console players, and, of course, the same dose of magic.
But, it's time for shooters. First off is the highly anticipated Crysis 2. This action-packed shooter can be played in several different ways, and it'll be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Amazingly, it'll be the only game available this holiday for all three systems with stereoscopic 3D capabilities! All it'll take is a pair of 3D glasses included with the game. Mmm… interesting.
Cliff Bleszinki shows up on stage, presenting a title people are very excited about, Bulletstorm. The game, developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games, will come out in February 22nd of 2011.
After the intense Bulletstorm trailer we hear Star Wars music. It's BioWare and Star Wars: The Old Republic! They reveal player vs. player details such as the ability to choose if you're a Jedi or a Sith - if you're with the Republic or the Empire. A trailer with remarkably detailed graphics shows us a glimpse of what's to come. A multitude of characters on-screen fight in a passionate battle for survival, showcasing one of the most intense Lightsaber clashes you've ever seen in a video game.
That was certainly not a bad ending for the press conference! Hopefully everyone else will have the same amount of quality titles in store for us!
