Well for anyone who wants to read my 2 cents, here they are.
Ill try not to spoiler anything but we all make mistakes, just a warning
Firstly, GW2 looks AMAZING if the demo is anything to go by. The interface I thought was excellent and wasnt nearly as intrusive as I thought it might be after seeing videos of gamescon. A lot of people seem to not like the bigger damage numbers, but I didnt really think it was bad at all. Sure I can hit for a couple hundred damage, but the other guy has a couple thousand health. I realize this makes it more similar to other games, but as long as the percentages match up, I could care less if I only hit for 2 damage or 200000000000. Sadly there were no release dates, beta dates, beta keys, etc etc given out so, there is no new info on that front afaik. The character creation menu was open though, and that looks very promising for any of you RP'ers out there. Picking if your character was born into a common household, noble household etc as well as other things like picking your characters greatest regret (not joining the circus ftw) Those choices actually affect how the game plays out which I thought was a very nice touch. All in all the game looks great in just about every aspect. Also for what its worth, the game was pretty fun to play in 3D if any of you want to fork over the dollars when it comes out
In other news, most of the more anticipated games had huge lines, and because I was only there for 1 of the 3 days I didnt wait in any of them, except for GW2 of course. From what I could see though, Fable 3 looked pretty good, and as long as its anything like the other ones I would think it will be fun to play. Halo Reach was there, but I dont like Halo and paid 0 attention to that so I cant comment on how it looks, but the line was almost 3 hours long. Duke Nukem also had a huge line and because their station was enclosed, you had to wait through the whole line to even see gameplay. So for anyone looking for info on that, I've got nothing. For all of you Fallout fans, I did play the New Vegas demo and all I can say is that fully automatic grenade launchers are awesome. Seriously though, the game was very good but I think that you need something like 4-5 hours before you get a real sense of how good a game like that is. Microsoft had their Kinect thing out in force, and I have to say I was skeptical of it at first, but it is a lot of fun. I demo'ed a racing game (dont remember the name XD) and you just sat down and mimed driving, it was a lot of fun. Whether or not its worth the supposed 150 USD price tag, that has yet to be seen. I have never been an Assassins Creed fan, but the demo for the newest one (brotherhood) was pretty good. The graphics were the most impressive part for me, but the gameplay was nice. I cant really compare it to the other ones because I have never really played them, but I thought it was pretty good. There were other cool things besides games as well. Microsoft again (there was a lot of Microsoft, probably because they are based like 20 minutes away) had a very cool piece of hardware. For anyone who has heard about or is familiar with the Microsoft Surface, it is awesome. I played some Settlers of Catan (if you dont know what that is, its a great board game I would highly recommend) on the Surface and it was great. No breaking the board or accidentally destroying all the pieces. Its super expensive, 15,000 USD, but hey if you have the money go buy one
Thats all that I can think of off the top of my head for right now, and I need to go to class so I have to wrap this up. If you can think of a question I will try to answer it if I can. But I will leave you with this link
