You mean the Move.

8:51
benwade:

Kobe says, “This is crazy.”

8:51
Jeremy Lloyd:

Kobe Bryant jokingly says the game isn’t realistic

8:51
benwade:

I say it’s just like every other NBA2K game I’ve ever played.

8:52
benwade:

Game will be out on October 4th, 2011.

8:53
benwade:

New Move game, Medieval Moves Dead Man’s Quest, is being shown. It’s also 3D.

8:53
Jeremy Lloyd:

Sony seems to have a big focus on 3-D this year

8:53
benwade:

It’s a first-person action adventure fantasy title.

8:54
benwade:

He is using the Move to mimic shooting a bow and arrow.

8:54
Jeremy Lloyd:

game only uses the move wand

8:55
benwade:

He also mimics moving a key in a keyhole to unlock a door, somewhat like Metroid Prime 3’s twisting mechanic.

8:55
Jeremy Lloyd:

the game has a very cartoon look

8:56
benwade:

There is no inventory system, you go from one weapon to the next. That actually sounds pretty awful…

8:56
Jeremy Lloyd:

the game seems to be geared towards a younger crowd because no adult would ever play this.

8:57
benwade:

Is this the “Sorcery” title from last year? It looks similar, just in first rather than third-person.

8:57
Comment From jakerock

He also jacks off really fast to throw ninja stars

8:58
benwade:

Trenton claims that gamers want casual titles.

8:58
benwade:

Infamous 2 will be launching tomorrow, which shouldn’t even be talked about during an E3 press conference.

8:59
benwade:

Because there are already reviews out, and everyone likely already knows everything about it.

9:00
benwade:

This fall the user generated content system will be added to Infamous 2, which I thought was already out.

9:01
benwade:

LBP 2 will receive a Move update this fall.

9:01
Jeremy Lloyd:

Trenton says little Big Planet 2 will get a “deeper” move experience

9:01
benwade:

It will let you make Move levels and play the game with the Move.

9:01
Comment From jakerock

  4. August 1, 2013 at 9:35 am

    Well to me Martial Arts means respect and discipline.
    I have trained in different Martial arts now for well above 20
    years. I have seen a considerable amount of people appear and disappear but one
    other thing that I have noticed happens to be the respect and discipline having changed those peoples perception of life.

    Young kids that have started that might be on the wrong side of the tracks, always in
    trouble and no idea how to respect other kids. Place them in a controlled environment with discipline and fighting and they soon start to understand.

    Martial arts is one method for teenagers and adults to get
    rid of their aggression without hurting or bullying anyone.

  5. November 18, 2013 at 11:02 pm
