Little Big Planet
We didn't go to E3, so we talked to someone who actually did: G4 Games Editorial Manager Abbie Heppe.
What impressed you the most from the show? Were there any specific games that
you were genuinely blown away by?Despite being a scaled down E3, there
were a tremendous amount of big games on the floor. Fallout 3, Infamous, Little
Big Planet, Mercenaries 2, Project Origin and Dead Space are all amazing games.
I have a game wish-list a mile long after the show and I know I'm going to
forget to mention something. I'm really glad to see companies integrating so
much co-op into games as well; I'm a very social gamer.
Some of us who didn't get to go thought the show was maybe much ado about little. Would you agree or disagree?The press conferences definitely weren't the big deals we've seen
in past years, but between the show floor and behind-closed-doors meeting rooms
there was a ridiculous amount of games to play. E3 is really about the games,
right? You can take away the glitz and glamour and booth babes but what
remains is still the heart of E3 and that's games. If people need spetacle to
get their attention then they're missing the point.
You can catch Abbie Heppe on G4's X-Play at 8 P.M. EST Monday through Friday
