Blizzard is a great choice for gamer god award even if they didn't have a game release in 2011.

EDIT

Damn no release date for D3, Generals 2 wins the reveal of the night for me. Don't care for Bioshock.

Generals 2 and The Last of Us were great. Otherwise, wasted time watching all this junk.

The trailers for Mass Effect 3 and Diablo 3 were great. Generals 2 wins it in my books. That reveal blew me away.

Apparently MGS is going hack and slash. What a joke for the final reveal.

I was digging Alan Wake honestly.

I am also psyched that they FINALLY are releasing the original Tony Hawks in HD. I thought this was something that should have done years ago. Apparently it will be classic levels from THPS1&2, and will be under $20.

As far as that Epic game Fortnite, just not my cup of tea it seems pretty clear.

The Last Of Us really had me most excited from a "bigger" game perspective.

And I just watched Rising. Looks pretty bad ass.

First RTS in Frostbite = Win.

And hardly overkill.

So far, the same engine has been used in a shooter (BF3 of course) and two racing games (HP 2010 and NFS - The Run). Also, CryEngine3 has been used in two MMOs (one of which is F2P, no less). What would be a shocker would be the use of CryEngine 3 in a racing game.

That information is not knew. There have been various trailers and gameplay videos released for MGS Rising for several years now. I was hoping we'd finally get a release date. Seeing how this is one of the first ever MGS games that was supposed to be released for the pc I've been watching for news on it closely for a while.

O, so then why if this is such a major break from the series is it so liked? I mean if splinter cell all the sudden played like CoD the fan base would go nuts.

What do you mean? From what I've seen and read about the game it isn't only supposed to be hack'n'slash, you don't have to play it that way. But that information is old and dates back as far as 2009, I haven't seen anything from this vga which was supposed to be some sort of big reveal.

And I can't say why others like it, I can only go on what I've seen and that is cutting **** up in brutal fashion and kicking all kinds of ass. What's not to like?

ME 3 gameplay trailer was cool!

Speaking of Generals....is it made by Bioware? Very strange!

Fortnite by Epic games doesnt look too exciting sadly.

Not really sure how it'd be shocking at all.

Frostbite is being leveraged by EA because they own DICE, hence they own the engine, hence they don't have to pay royalties. If they owned Crytek and not DICE, I'm sure we'd be seeing CryENGINE 3 powering all their games.

They publish Crytek via agreement, but have no ownership over IP or the company.

EA Partners and Crytek had a publishing agreement for Crysis 2, much like what they had with id for Rage before id was purchased by Bethesda/Zenimax. (I would have used Valve as an example, but their partnership with EA Partners is much different -- EA doesn't fund them, so there's no cross-branding. In other words, they just make the physical copies for Valve since they already have the systems in place for physical publishing. It's why you don't see an EA logo in Valve's games. Kind of a tangent...)

I don't think it's a multi-game agreement. Crytek is also making games for THQ (Homefront 2) and Microsoft (Ryse).

I was referring more to their respective game engines (Frostbite 2 and CryEngine 3).

Both engines are not just multiplatform, but highly versatile; remember, CryEngine 3 will have been used for two MMOs (one of which is F2P) before Ryse even goes into closed beta.

And because (unlike Frostbite 2), CryEngine 3 is not tied to a specific publisher, it is a great deal more leveragable by both developers and publishers than Frostbite 2.

The days of the single-platform (let alone single-purpose) game engine are pretty much done (except for indie development - and maybe even there, too, with free SDKs such as the one for CryEngine 3).

Not really sure how it'd be shocking at all.

Frostbite is being leveraged by EA because they own DICE, hence they own the engine, hence they don't have to pay royalties. If they owned Crytek and not DICE, I'm sure we'd be seeing CryENGINE 3 powering all their games.

But could you see GRiD2 or TDU3 using CryEngine 3?
