I am very excited for this year's E3 because Ubisoft will finally unveil Red Steel 2. I am one of the few people who enjoyed the first game, and judging from the trailer that was leaked last week, I think we are in for a real treat. Red Steel 2 will take advantage of the Wii MotionPlus. The trailer showcased some jaw-dropping visuals, which I hope are in-engine, but I somehow doubt it. Regardless of the visuals, I am still very excited for this game!
I am also looking forward to God of War III for one reason: the other two games rocked! The first one was great, and the second one was even better. From what I've seen, the game will be pushing the hardware further than any other game before it. The gameplay looks very similar to what we've seen in the past, and I'm sure the story will be just as strong as the first two games.
I'm hoping Nintendo will unveil some flagship first-party titles like Zelda and Mario, but I don't expect them to do so. They really need to announce some big first-party games, because all their major titles this year are from third-parties. For example: Red Steel 2 and The Conduit are both third-party games that are aimed at the hard core, but most of Nintendo's games are still targeting the casual crowd. At E3 2008, Shigeru Miyamoto admitted that Pikmin 3 is in development, so I'm fairly certain that it will be unveiled at this year's E3.
