E3 After the First Day

The first day at E3 is now done and I am back at the hotel relaxing a bit. I will start off with some bad news for our readers and some of the publishers they were interested in. UFO Interactive doesn't have a booth at the show, Xseed and D3 have small meeting rooms but no games on display. Unfortunately I won't be able to give any impressions on these games because they aren't at the show.

I did get to play Muramasa: Demon Blade and was very impressed with it. The art style is beautiful. Each sword has different strengths and unique special attacks. There is also some strategy involved in changing swords. Every time you change swords you automatically attack every enemy on screen with a super attack. You can only change swords at certain times though so you need to use it wisely. I took some pictures of the game in action, but forgot my camera-to-PC so the images will have to wait until I get back.

I didn't get a chance to play the other Ignition games yet, but will leave my impressions as soon get a chance to try them.

On a positive note for VGPC readers. I will have around 4 or 5 extra Muramasa: Demon Blade tote bags. They are all black with the Muramas logo on the back. If anyone wants one, email me with your address. I will ship them to the first people to send me the info.

Nice, Muramasa sounds pretty slick ^_^

Think you'll be able to get into the Mass Effect 2 demo? I'm curious why it wasn't featured in the Microsoft Conference, nor the EA one.

There isn't a Mass Effect 2 demo anywhere on the show floor. There might be one behind closed doors but I don't have press credentials so I don't get to see any of the "behind the scenes" stuff.

The only sign of Mass Effect 2 at E3 is a poster right before you enter the South Hall where Microsoft and EA have their booths.
