E3 2006 Most Surprising: Fury, Auran
Then we saw it. Carolyn Koh penned our E3 Preview based on what she saw. Besides jaw dropping graphics, the game is very much player vs. player centric, but in a way that might well be friendly to the average North American gamer. Obviously, the company has a global vision for their product, but as more and more companies try and design games for everyone, this is not uncommon.
On the show floor, Designer Adam Carpenter invited the entire staff to take part in a 4 on 4 PvP tournament. It is my biggest regret from the show that we simply did not have the time all truck down there and see what would have happened. Nonetheless, consider it a date for next year.
None of this even touches on the graphics, which are definitely in the mix for Best Graphics. Do they win? Read on to find out, but I must say, that was definitely the hardest category to select this year.
This category wasn't even close. If any game came out of left field to grab us, it was Auran's Fury. They're off to a good start.
