My E3 2010 Game of the Show Already...

Yeah, I'm already calling my game of the show for this year's E3 unless any dramatic changes will happen. It is Q Entertainment's new game being published by Ubisoft called Child of Eden for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. My man Miz, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, showed it off publicly for the first time as being the true spiritual successor to Rez, one of my favorite games of all-time. If you know me, I do love Rez a lot as this one is just amazing on all levels (if I find a YT clip of the demo from the Ubisoft presser) as the demo was done by Miz with Kinect full body controls. The colors, the settings, the pointer, the music, and Genki Rockets screams Q Entertainment and Rez as a whole from top to bottom. I'm curious how this works with Playstation Move (which I guess there's no Move support - oh well), whether full body will be the difference with experience than holding the two Move controllers. Good thing it is not a Kinect-only game as normal controllers can be used and likely control similar to Rez. Child of Eden is already one of most anticipated games of the year if it is still slated for this holiday, but I won't mind it coming out next year either. Rez finally lives on as if this was the original goal in the first place for the guys of Q Entertainment.
