E3: EA Conference

First is Dead Space 3. I am really hoping this comes to the Wii U, but EA did not show any support yet for it besides their annual sports titles.

Anyway, Dead Space 3 seems to still have very tense moments, but I am really unsure about whether or not theĀ  addition of co-op will help or hinder the game’s feeling of horror. It looks very cool regardless and I like the ice covered planet as a change to the space station corridors and such from the previous games. It seems as if EA has taken a page from Capcom’s RE5 book and taking a turn toward the more action type horror of that game.

EA also showsed off 2 new Sim City titles. THe first was Sim City Social which is a facebook game. It looks to be similar to FarmVille and CityVille and those type of games. The second was the reinvented Sim City for the PC. This looks like the old games but with much better graphics. There is also the fact that people’s cities will be connected to each other through the Internet. They stated that cities will affect those adjacent to them which could lead to some interesting consequences for your actions not only in your own city but those around you.

Five Battlefield 3 expansions were shown which all focus on different facets of the genre. The Aftermath expansion looked as if I would like it the most out of them. It seems to have a focus on surviving the setting you have been placed into as a player. Survival games are a very interesting genre…I would say new genre but I am unsure if it is true or not.

The final game shown was Need for Speed Most Wanted. I liked the Need for Speed games involving the police the most out of the ones I have played. Playing as the police trying to catch the perpetrator and playing as the perp trying to get away from the police both were very fun and interesting changes to the normal type of racing game.

Hopefully EA announces some more support for the Wii U, Otherwise, they do seem to have some cool upcoming games.
