Video Game Talk at E3: What do you want to read about?

This year, I'm fortunate enough to be attending E3 this year with media access representing DVDTalk/VideoGameTalk. Thanks to the help of Geoff and Jeff, I'm starting to book appointments and schedule time to preview new software/hardware with various developers.

I'd really like to know what the readers of DVD Talk are most interested in hearing about. Hopefully, I'll be posting from the show floor when I can get a spare minute throughout each day of the expo. I won't have time to take any specific requests during the day, but I'll do my best to accommodate questions from the members of the forum each evening.

Just give me a general idea what you are most interested in reading impressions about and I'll try to focus questions/hands-on time on those requests, time permitting of course.

Everything so far: ( means it's booked)

2K Games: Bioshock

Activision: The Movies sequel

Atari: Neverwinter Nights 2

Bioware: Dragon Age, Jade Empire 2

Blizzard: World of Warcraft expansion

Capcom: O-kami

Konami: Castlevania Compilation

Electronic Arts: Battlefield 2142, Command and Conquer 3, Madden 07, Spore

LucasArts: Kotor 3

Microsoft: Eyetoy, Gears of War, Halo 3, HD-DVD, Mass Effect, Rare games, Too Human, Xbox Live info

Nintendo: DS games, Revolution hardware/software impressions, Zelda

Red Octane: Guitar Hero 2

Sega: Yakuza

Sony: PS3 hardware/software impressions

I'm sure a lot of people (myself included) are going to be interested in your impressions of the Revolution and PS3. Hopefully you'll be able to try out that Revolution controller if they have it on the floor.

A more personal request, if you get to talk with Konami, I'd be interested to know if there are any plans for a Castlevania Collection or something like that. To me they have an instant hit if they put all the old school Castlevania's on one disc.

Yah, I'm planning on hitting up the Revolution/PS3 displays during the 2 hour early access time for the media on the first day. I'm sure people will want to hear about that first and foremost.

I will most likely be meeting with Konami. I'm just waiting to hear back from them, atm.

Seriously though, I'm not sure what's been officially announced for E3 yet, but for now I agree with DVDChris in that I would like to hear a lot about the Revolution. I suppose as more news is announced as E3 approaches, we'll be able to give you a better idea of what we'd like specifically. As always, we'd love to hear about any surprises that come up during the expo, since the surprises are always huge.

If they happen to have Street Fighter 2 for XBLA running, and it hasn't been released yet, I'd love to hear about how well it plays online, and how good/bad the 360 controller is with it.

Yeah, obviously info on the Revolution would be nice, not just about the games, but also about their plans on alternate controllers for games that don't work as well with the remote. What I would like to know is if they're just going to use the Gamecube controller for that, or will there be a new design?

Another thing I'd like to know is if the Revolution will support 5.1 surround sound.

I'd also like to hear what Rare is up to, especially if they're going to do a new Banjo-Kazooie game.

I'm always interested in hearing about the crowds. Which games/boothes are attracting all the attention? etc.

Highest on my list of need to know info:

1. Confirmed price and release date of Revolution
2. Confirmed price and release date of PS3
3. Confirmed list of downloadable games for the Revolution

I'm sure the above won't be available, except item #3. I hope Nintendo offers a standard wireless controller. I don't have much interest in using a remote to play games.

Revolution is the only thing I can think of at the moment that interests me at E3.

I'd be interested to hear if there is going to be any next gen Star Wars games, specifically a Knights of the Old Republic 3.

Halo 3 info would be nice. Any news on Live and things to watch out for.

Would love to find out if there are any plans to bring over some Japanese RPG games, -eM- Enchanted Arms in particular. Saw a demo of that it it looked like an interesting game.

As well as info requested above.

Anything 360 related would be nice

I'm really curious about the HD-DVD device for the 360.

I'm curious to know when companies will stop supporting PS2/Xbox and concentrate solely on next-gen stuff. I know these sub-par 360 ports are getting a little old.

I'd love me some 360 swag Specifically Bungie/Halo 3 is where my main interest lies. But anything 360 related is cool.

Can anyone who is attending E3 give me an idea of what time the press conferences are taking place for the Big 3? They are all on the first day, right?

I'm a Nintendo fanboy, and I'd happily accept any Nintendo swag anyone has to offer as well. As far as what I want you to look at... I guess I want to know how comfortable the Rev controller is (as well as how sturdy), if you can see it becoming a hassle to play games by constantly moving your arms and hands, etc. I don't know, I guess I just want thorough impressions on the Revolution (moreso the console than the games).
