[E3 2010] Video Game Trivia with E3 2010 Booth Babes – Part 2

It is now apparent that Booth Babes do not know much about what they are doing at a video game expo rather than handing out fliers and showing off cleavage. Which is fine with me, don’t get me wrong. But, wouldn’t it be hotter if the girls actually knew something about video games?

Past the break is part 2 of our basic video game trivia with E3 Booth Babes.

[E3 2010] Video Game Trivia with E3 2010 Booth Babes – Part 1

Booth babes. Models. Hired tits. Whatever you want to call them, we all know what they are used for one thing.  To get you and your loins to look at the booth that they are in. At this year’s E3, I wanted to see which booth babe(s) knew a little bit of video game and geek trivia.  The following are the questions that I asked them:

  • What is the name of Mario’s brother?
  • Who/What is PAC-MAN?
  • Name the first 3 Nintendo Consoles
  • Name the character that shoot fireballs out of their hands and says “HADOKEN?”
  • What is the Konami code for Contra?
  • Who is Han Solo’s co-pilot?
  • In Halo, what is the name of the main character you play as?

Not too hard right? Especially if you truly know your games. View the videos of these so called “Gamer Girls” past the break.

[E3 2010] Castlevania Lords of Shadow takes a more grandiose turn

[E3 2010] Castlevania Lords of Shadow takes a more grandiose turn

Konami’s demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow indicated a change towards a more operatic, Gothic tone in this newest entry for the franchise.

The on-floor demo began with ominous narration establishing the premise: it’s the middle ages, and the world seems to be on the brink of the apocalypse. Darkness is winning, and the dead can no longer pass on to their just reward.The protagonist, Gabriel Belmont, is a holy knight in service to the people, whose deceased wife is trapped in Limbo. Spurred by his love for her, he sets out on a suicidal quest to battle the “Lords of Shadow” and retrieve a mask rumored to be capable of resurrecting the dead. Since it’s a Castlevania title, it’s probably not a bad guess that vampires are involved somewhere.

[E3 2010] Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Multiplayer Demo

[E3 2010] Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Multiplayer Demo

While browsing around the E3 show floor, we stopped by the Ubisoft booth.  At that moment they were just getting started with their multiplayer demo of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.  In the video past the break, you’ll see how the multiplayer action really works well for this franchise. In the demo, we were shown that you could choose between several different characters.  Each character has a different set of weapons at their disposal which could be switched out while waiting for respawn. (Think Team Fortress 2.)  The object of multiplayer isn’t as much as getting as many kills as you can, but making unique types of kills to earn more points. (Think style points.) Kills like a discrete kill, a kill jumping from a higher ledge than your prey, or even get points for successfully running away from your predator.

Check out the 6 minute video past the break to see how the action unfolds.

[E3 2010] Rock Band 3 – Hands-on Demo Review

Wow.

Rock Band 3 could probably be justified in sitting on its laurels. The original title revolutionized rhythm games, and successive installments have broadened the song selection while retaining the core gameplay. Can rhythm games really evolve much further?

In a phrase: dear god yes.

[E3 2010] Activision Preview Event/Concert

[E3 2010] Activision Preview Event/Concert

Imagine walking into the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Then imagine yourself going to the bar and asking for a drink, then moseying on over to the snack bar and asking for some Twizzlers, Buncha Crunch, and a cookie. Now imagine yourself getting in line for the concert. Nowhere in that story did I tell you to imagine yourself taking out your wallet and paying for said items.

Yes, everything was free.  This was a free event that Activision completely paid for. (THANK YOU!)

Performing at the event, or should I say concert, were a lot of big name mainstream artists and DJs. Here was the line up: David Guetta, DJ Z-Trip, Deadmau5, Usher, Eminem, N.E.R.D., Tony Hawk, 2 people from Queen, Chris Cornell, Will.I.Am, and a pole dancer.

[E3 2010] Capcom’s MvC3 and Dead Rising 2 impressions

Capcom’s E3 booth featured several intriguing offerings, but among the most interesting were Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Dead Rising 2.

Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds was front and center. This newest entry in the popular series sticks to series tradition; the demo on display still had the spark of prior incarnations once we got used to the new controls and cell-shaded models. Old-style Hadokens, close-up special attacks, and flexible combos are still very much in evidence, even though old favorites like Ryu, Iron Man, and Morrigan are joined by newcomers Deadpool (Marvel), Chris Redfield (Resident Evil), and Dante (Devil May Cry). Beautiful graphics with a consistent comic book style and fluid gameplay make this Spring 2011 something to look forward to; the demo on the floor seemed plenty playable already.
