E3: Who's Going and What to Expect

Hey there guys. I made this topic so that we can speculate what we will see and find out who's going. This include normal members of the forum or big Youtubers. As we move closer to E3 this topic will be used for posting videos from E3 as well as pictures.

What is E3?

E3 is an expo for new electronics and video games. Skylanders has always been featured there since 2011 and will be there this year as well. Usually information regarding the game and figures is announced. There are also usually demos as well a the chance to get your hands on the figures. E3 is held in Los Angeles, California.

E3 is June 10-12

The booths that Activision will be featured in will be booths MR 303A, MR 304A, MR 403B, MR 404AB, 1647, and OFMR 8005.
Skylanders will more than likely be featured at 1627 as they are right next to Disney Interactive.

If you going tell me and I can add you to the list.

People Who Are Going:
milton310
Aura24
pennyman/Robert Welkner/COIN-OP TV
wdrumz
Probably Skylanders Dad
Probably FamilyGamerTV


Now here's what I expect to see;
An in depth look at Krypt King.
An in depth look at Gearshift.
The name of the "Air Dragon"
Possibly the name of the Egyptian, magic core
Info on the mini Spyro thing in the trailer
A look at S2 Shroombooms gameplay as well as an official title
The title of S4 Gill Grunt
3 More Reposes
2 New Cores
3-4 New Trap Masters
6 or 7 more Traps as well as a closer look at the Kaos trap
3 New Villains
Information on Lightcore
A look of upgrading villains
2 New Levels shon in depth
1 or 2 other levels seen or talked about
1 Adventure pack
1 Battle Pack


And that's about it.

That may be a tad optimistic, but I think knowing about it's not far off from what I was expecting/hoping. I hope someone can man up on the actual gameplay, and if our toys will be more than boat anchors since the level cap is still 20 and the risk of not including heroics/quests seams reasonable at this point.

I'm hoping they do something like heroics, no matter how they happen or are developed. I just want the ability to work on my individual characters to improve their stats, especially the speed stat for those slow characters.

I would love something to boost stats as well. I don't want to do 100+ missions to get every stat maxed. Maybe... Each Skylanders unlocks one but you have to be in that element to do it.

I don't see why we can't just have them back. People say oh I'm so glad I don't HAVE to do heroics. But they never had to, it's a want. For example you don't have to do 100+ missions on every Skylander just for the heck of it. Just do the ones you want.

I don't see why they can't make new heroic challenges that unlock with the new characters. Have 50 of them with the same identifying name in the code as the past 50, thus any that were already done would show up as completed in any old Skylanders. Then we'll have some new ones to do, plus we can appease those who feel they "have to" do this optional gameplay (as ninja pointed out) and not have to redo all heroics for every single character we own. Then you'd just have to do any boosts that are added beyond the 50 that are already spoken for, if any. I'm not up to date on how many new core/trapmasters there are going to be. I think it's fully possible to do heroics in this game and I would really like to see them back. If nothing else in my list of things I would like to see changed from Swap Force, I'd really like this one thing to be returned to us.

Here's a suggestion for "heroics": replace bonus missions with identical challenges that boost the stats of an individual Skylanders like before. Make them available to buy at an (in-game) shop and littered through-out the story mode and wala.

I would say that you would need to get only one to complete all. I am also going to E3 from Boston for the entire event, since I also need to over XBox, Sony, and Nintendo for my company.

Not my kind of game, but, beside Trap Team, I'm eager to see the new Media Molecule PS4 game...

Sorry for the little off-topicness. smilie

What I expect to see is:
- at least three new cores (maybe some of the unconfirmed ones);
- at least four new Trap Masters (including the "Mummy);
- a couple new traps, and their respective villains (Wolfgang...? smilie);
- some gameplay of at least two new levels;
- a couple unfinished (and yet unplayable) characters, like Spy Rise, Rip Tide, Pop Thorn, Grilla Drilla and Fire Kraken, last year;
- a longer trailer, showing some new Skylanders and villains;
- some new in game mechanics, like the new autogyro sections;
- one of the two teased gimmicks.

I am particularly curious to see if two Trap Masters of the same element have a weapon of the same color. I really don't hope so, it would ruin a bit of the uniqueness of each character. Even a slightly different shade would work perfectly! smilie

Well, we still don't know anything about it. However, it should be related to the Sony virtual reality headset (currently known as Project Morpheus) and should involve virtual 3D sculpting of objects, characters and scenes to later play with.

I'm not sure if this has been asked or answered already, but I'm very curious about this: Let's say I'm playing with Boomer and I switch him out with a trapped villain such as the Chompie Mage. When the Mage runs out of health, I presume he becomes unplayable until the level is over like the Skylanders. But what about Boomer? Does his health run independently of anything that happens to the Mage while tagged out, or do they both become unplayable until the level is over? I know I read somewhere that all gold and XP go to the Skylander, in this example Boomer. Would the knockout do something to Boomer too?

Well, characters help with the sizzle...but you have to start being critical if they won't give us upgraded level caps and as of now no heroics. So, where's the toys to life in this game? I think we're way too bloated on characters versus content. Time to call em out on that. I saw the look of disappointment you had that they've already taken any online component out. They gotta do more than to introduce more characters and a gimmick.

Ok guys so I found the booths that Activision will be at.
MR 303A, MR 304A, MR 403B, MR 404AB, 1647, OFMR 8005
More than likely Skylanders will only be featured at 1647 as that booth is adjacent to Disney Interactive's booth. The rest will probably show off Acti's other games.

My hope is if Rob Welkner goes to E3 for skylanders, he doesn't mispronounce half the things. I like ya rob, but all the mispronunciations you make in your skylanders 101 videos of their ability names really bugs me!

I hope to see more chomper gameplay... and the "mummy", along with the high five character. I want to see more of the traptanium skylanders

Speaking about mistakes... Don't you mean "Chopper"? smilie

Just joking, I would like to see more of him too, and, as you said, at least the winner of the naming contest, if not all the three unnamed characters. smilie
