Except for some not so great screenshots here and there we knew until now next to nothing about Just Cause, the third person shooter from Eidos. So it's with great pleasure that I show you the first part of a long presentation of the game, done with a work-in-progress 360 version. Prepare to be impressed.
Let's recap first. Just Cause let's you play the role of an american special agent, with the mission to bring peace in a country composed of islands. Yes, all by himself. It doesn't seem that incredible, but keep in mind that the country is big, *really* big. Just Cause also uses a non-linear mission system like GTA3, which is good since there are many of them. And the very nice fact is that your character can do some pretty awesome and completely unrealistic things. He's not a super-hero, but some of the stuff he can do is borderline crazy. This is one of our biggest surprise for this E3.
As mentioned before, this is still a very much work-in-progress version requiring a lot of polishing. The pop-in/clipping/shadowing issues will of course be fixed in the final version.
Update: A big "thanks" to Mark of XFERLA.com, who provides us a pretty strong server to host the video. If you have issues to download the file from the USA, this mirror should come in handy !

I hear ya. Game in general just don't seem to do it for me as I get older. A shame too considering I have decent bandwidth that only took 20 years to get. Which may leave soon; if you know what. (30 minutes ago)
The end of last year wasn't good. This year didn't even start yet,but there isn't 1 announced game that really intrigues me. (30 minutes ago)
RDR1 didn't do it for me, Days Gone still has to prove itself, Same with Spiderman. DBH could be good. Death stranding: who knows (33 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Really? Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War, Days Gone, Spiderman, Detroit Become Human, Dragonball Fighter Z, and Death Stranding don't excite you? (47 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: hang in there and be strong pal. (49 minutes ago)
It's looking to be a pretty boring game year. (55 minutes ago)
