A lookback at E3 games: Fantasia: Music Evolved

Probably my favorite game from E3: a new rhythm game from Harmonix that puts a new spin on the whole music game genre. While the game does have your traditional "hit the mark with the right timing" gameplay, it also allows the user to change the song as they play it. Ultimately this conductor game should be seen to be believed. Check out this video for a good look (the gameplay starts around 3:40).

The game incoporates its Fantasia license loosely, but attempts to capture the spirit of the classic movie more than anything. Fantasia: Music Evolved comes out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime in 2014, and requires Kinect to play.

E3 is over - Sony wins, probably, and everyone's still hating the Xbox One


So it's come and gone. Every year, this giant news source drops a boatload of content onto fans' shoulders, and leaves us to sort through the mess. In the coming weeks, we're going to take a look at some of the things that might have been overshadowed by the major console news.

For now, here's a quick recap of the biggest stuff with Microsoft and Sony, in case you missed it!


E3 2013 Press Conferences

The day of E3 press conferences ended with a bang thanks to Sony's strong showing. We saw the console, got the price ($399, lower than Xbox's $499), nice announcements (Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV (formerly Versus XIII)), and support for indie developers!

Tomorrow, the adventure continues with Nintendo's video presentation.

Join Bosskey on IRC during E3 one of several ways:

  • Download an IRC client (like Chatzilla, Adium, or mIRC), and go to #bosskey on
  • Visit this link directly and just enter your name to join: Mibbit link!

Kiefer Sutherland is the next Naked Snake voice

During Konami's pre-E3 press conference today, it has been revealed that Kiefer Sutherland, best known as Jack Bauer of 24, will provide the voice of Big Boss AKA Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5. Absurd!

David Hayter, the original voice of the Snake character, was shown to not be involved with this new game in the Metal Gear Solid series a few weeks back when the MGS 5 trailer was first released.

NYU study finds that the presence of a used games market drives new game sales

Marketing professors at NYU recently investigated the notion that the sale of a used game equals lost money for the game's developer. They found that consumers are "'forward-thinking': They take the eventual resale value of their games into account when purchasing them."

Were the used games market to be eliminated entirely, game prices would need to be about 33% (down to roughly $40 in the US) lower, according to the study. Rumors surrounding the newly unveiled Microsoft Xbox One seem to suggest that the used game industry is indeed in trouble.

Video games at the Museum of Modern Art

A few weekends back, I went to New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) with some friends, one of whom was a studio art major (this is important later). Part of the decision to go was based on the presence of an exhibit that featured video games!

Upon entering the museum, we stumbled upon Tilda Swinton sleeping in a glass box. That was cool. We wandered a bit before asking a staff member about the video game exhibit, met with a curt reply of "It's not just about video games, you know." She seemed very set on making it clear.


Comedy Central will not renew Futurama for an eighth season

With the second half of season 7 starting June 19, Comedy Central has announced that Futurama will not continue following the completion of this run. They had revived the show in 2008 following a five year gap in production. The new run has given some new life to a too-short-lived series, but it seems that has come to an end. Hopefully, the final episode of this run will give some more definitive closure for fans.

Link to the Past sequel announced for 3DS to be released holidays this year

Today, at a Nintendo Direct presentation, Link to the Past 2 was unveiled as a 3D graphics enhanced traditional Zelda game. This is the first time we've had a new game of this kind since Minish Cap.

A year ago, Miyamoto commented on the idea of a remake to the SNES classic Link to the Past, saying that he'd much rather see a follow-up title than a simple 3D-ification of the classic. Of course, for news starved Zelda fans, any news is good news.

Turns out, follow-up means sequel! The new game will utilize its new platform in some unique ways — while predominantly a "2D" game, the player can shift perspective by becoming a drawing on a wall, and move within the third dimension to solve puzzles. There will also be new layers of depth, heightened by the 3D effects of the device. 3DS owners can find a 3D enabled video demonstrating these features later today on the 3DS eshop.

In other Zelda news, Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages will be available on the 3DS store May 30, complete with game-linking features. Huzzah!
