EA on Battlefield for Wii U

“What’s really going to make it [Wii U] stand out for core gamers is the new controller. It’s touchscreen, it’s elegant and it works seamlessly with the experience. We’ve just had a little bit of time with it and we’ve uncovered new ways of playing Battlefield that I’m really excited about. You can imagine that there are new ways of playing the game from a commander mode or for being able to drive from a different position inside of a vehicle. What I really liked about it was how good it felt in your hands. In addition to that it’s super powerful. It allows you to do a lot of things that no other controller can do.” – EA’s President Frank Gibeau

Having Battlefield on Wii U is going to be huge for Nintendo as I consider it to be the premier FPS over top of Call of Duty and if the Wii U version is going to offer more on it, it may be best to wait for that version.

EA Conference Summary

– EA conference is a go. Opens with a disaster video playing, can see Reapers attacking earth, yep it is Mass Effect. Nice opening, can see the quick destruction they are binging.

March 6 2012 release date announced. Promising an all out galatic war.
Demo incoming. Again, melee kills have been greatly improved and a focus of combat. Gameplay looks amazing, Oh why does the name escape me, the geth party member has shown up. Amazing music, absolutely amazing. Reaper is attacking, wait the whole base is an entire repear and you are fighting it on ship turrnet. Shepard calls in an airstrike and it only manages to make the reaper even angrier. Gameplay demo ends. Ok…March 6th 2012 can’t come fast enough.
Trailer is being shown, which you can see on the site. Again, the music is amazing

– Haha, EA just insulted Microsoft with saying they are keeping it simple without celebrities. Introduced new website called origin.com to view content for EA games and partner games.

– Need for Speed On The Run is being shown. Autolog being talked about. Autolog is being incorperated into the story. You will be able to leave the vehicles. Uses Frostbyte 2 engine. Li

Demo incoming. Graphics are very nice, lots of action, lighting effects are amazing. Reminds me of a combo of Burnout Paradise and Shift. You crash and a cutscene starts with quicktime events. Police helicopter is firing at you. Fighting a police officer in a quick time event and you steal an police car. Now you have to escape in less than 5 minutes and you have a police helicopter firing at you. Lots of explosions, how can they blow up innocent people, the police are truly evil in the game. They blow up a tanker and you got crashing off the intersection, thanks for increasing gas prices some more. Quick time event started to escape vehicle and there is a train coming, you barely escape and that is the end of the demo
