project cars delights me every time I see newer footage ( http://www.gamersyde.com/download_project_cars_ps4_gameplay_60_fps_-32343_en.html ). Very little else impressed me technically, and many of the games show were just sequels. Unfortunately E3 outside of Nintendo is mostly useless to me now, most interesting stuff is not being made by big E3-visiting publishers.

Edge report on the 'alternative E3' Horizon conference (http://www.edge-online.com/news/e3-2014s-horizon-conference-an-oasis-of-serene-beauty-amid-the-hyperbole/.). Definitely some interesting stuff on show, although the Edge report is a little generous in places - Quadrilateral Cowboy for instance has lots of nice ideas but also looked like the process of working through the roles of all the characters might get a bit laborious over time, whilst Mountain was charmingly presented but it's not actually clear where the gameplay really comes from.

Still, there were lots of interesting ideas on show - certainly more than in many of the mainstream conferences, and I have to say I do prefer the 'dev fumbling with his AV connections whilst trying to introduce himself' presentational style to the more slick and polished offerings seen elsewhere, though that might just be personal preference.

I dunno. I like the "slick, professional" shows because it's so funny when someone says something stupid. Feels harsh laughing at the indie guy struggling with the projector. ^^;

frod - yeah, I only watched some Project CARS coverage yesterday, and was blown away by the trailers. Very impressed that it's coming out this year.

Finally!

THIS! ^^^

Was anyone else surprised/impressed that this was a real game they were letting people play, rather than being totally mocked up?
