Hype or Snipe: The E3 Jamboree!

Post by Troggy » Sat Jun 20, 2015 9:13 pm

Hi, everybody!

Welcome to the third iteration of Hype or Snipe! Now that E3's come and gone, I feel like it's the perfect time to look back at the show and see what games were great and what games were considerably less so. If you liked a game, say 'Hype' and state your reasons why. If you disliked it, say 'Snipe' and state your reasons why.

Let's start with one of my favourite games from this year:

Cuphead (Xbox One and PC)

Hype, love the artstyle they went with. The gameplay doesn't look like anything to write home about but the shmup levels and standard side scrolling shooter seem fun enough.

Definitely hype for the art alone.

Hype, as others, for the art style. It looks bloody incredible.

Hype.
I know it wont happen, but crossover with Lab Zero to put Peacock in as a boss would be great. Dodging Argus Agonies would make a great shoot em up section

Hype, that art direction is up to Okami standards of art direction.

I swear I've seen this artstyle in a game recently but I've forgotten what game it was.

Snipe: I don't want to play a game that is nothing but boss battles because of an art style alone. No thank you.

Didn't know what Cuphead was before looking at this thread.

Now I am hype, because I want to live out a Saturday morning cartoon.

Hype, the game looks so fun, old school platforming with old school cartoon graphics, and the boss fights look insane, I need this game now.

This isn't a platformer, this is a boss fight game.

Hype.

The art style is obviously gorgeous, and it's been ages since I've played a decent run and gun game. The best bits of those were always the bosses anyway, so all in for this.

Time for an update!

With a tally of 11 votes to 2, Cuphead is SONM's first hyped E3 title!

Let's start a bit of a controversial choice now, in the form of...

Metroid Prime: Federation Force (3DS)

I dunno if "hype" is the word I'd use for this game. I'm definitely interested to play it when it comes out next year, but for the sake of the thread, I'll go with hype.

Oh and as a recommendation, perhaps include the game in the title? Just so people can see what the subject game is.

Pretty much agree with SK. I wouldn't say I'm hyped for it, but I'm interested in seeing how it pans out, so I'll go with hype

I'm not hyped for it, but I'm keeping a somewhat open mind about it - it doesn't look like a particularly amazing game, but nor does it look like it deserves to be cancelled like some have said.

Considering it hasn't really set me world on fire - snipe.

If a game makes you say, "Nintendo you gooseberry fool", aloud whenever you first see it, that's a very bad sign. I've been waiting way too many years for a new good Metroid for Nintendo to just tease me with this crap.

Snipe I suppose, I really don't care for it. Hunters was disappointing and seeing as this is the same gameplay but with a focus on co-op and as a spin off to the series it just doesn't interest me. Blast Ball on the other hand looks hype but eh, not enough to sway it.
