Okay, Pikmin 3 was mentioned at a Q&A session and it was apparently not ready to show at E3. Might see something in the next few months hopefully.

A decent E3 and decent coverage of the event too. I've made a note of 54 games that I'm interested in over the year and will be keeping an eye on them.

That's my point - most realistic (and obviously non-realistic) racers have damage as an element of the gameplay.

To not have damage in a new GT game would be awful.

I noticed but damage is expected, in my eyes, that I just took it for granted, despite it being a GT trailer.

Too right - Sony racing entering the 21st century at last! (gameplay-wise that is - we know they can do gwafix :P)

Doesnt seem to have been widely noticed, but the GT5 trailer has some car damage in too.

Taking me longer than I thought to come up with the rest of my E3 thoughts! So much to say.

At the moment, though the big three in order of good shows are:

Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo.

Considering that Nintendo basically announced a Pikmin 3 at E3 2008 by saying that the Pikmin team was working on a new project, I'm totally disappointed that we didn't hear or see anything on it.

And the Nintendo press conference felt like they were just throwing Mario at us saying 'Hey, we know what people want! More Mario! Mario coming out of your ears!' Although what they showed was good, it just felt totally flat.
