Weekend Confirmed 115 - E3 2012 predictions, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Dragon's Dogma

By Garnett Lee, Jun 01, 2012 11:00am PDT

E3 predictions! You love 'em! You hate 'em! You hate loving them? Whatever the case, The two Jeffs, and Insomniac's James Stevenson join Garnett to offer up plenty of forum fodder in anticipation of the big event next week. The crew tackles the big three--Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo--in the order of their respective press conferences. Does Xbox as a living room entertainment gateway give anyone goose bumps? Can Sony shake the Vita bottle hard enough to make a genie finally appear? Can Nintendo successfully answer "What would Mario do?" Of course, there's also time to talk some about the design plans for refining Diablo 3, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Dragon's Dogma before wrapping it up with Finishing Moves.

  • 'Twas the night before E3 when all through the net
    Not a poster was stirring for their minds were all set
    On gaming and gifs by the hundreds and more
    To see what press conferences would have in store

    The GAFfers were warm, all snug in their beds
    While visions of megatons danced in their heads
    And I, in my boredom, began to compose
    An ode to E3, in terrible prose

    When all of a sudden, with palpable glee
    "E3 is right here, on Spike TV"
    The voice of Geoff Keighley enlivens the still
    With the promise of games that he would fulfill

    "My body is ready!" shout Nintenbots with joy
    The Xbots counter "The Wii's just a toy!"
    Sony fans cheer for the Playstation brand
    And pray the Vita removes its head from the sand

    Then the conferences start with a flash and wubwub
    And disappear faster than the WiiU stick nub.
    We argue and bicker over the best game of show
    But at the end of the day, there's one thing we all know

    We all love to play, that much is for certain
    And love seeing what's happening behind the curtain.
    So before we see the Xbox green light
    Happy E3 to all and to all a good night!
