Games I Want to See in E3

I haven’t posted anything in a while because in all honesty nothing interesting has been going on in my life(social and gaming). I have playing Smite recently, might post an impression on that in a week or two. But besides April is ending pretty soon which means E3 is 1 month closer(when is it, mid June?) so I figured I’d make a short list of games I’d like to see during E3. Now obviously I want to see new IPs but since I can’t predict them this list is mostly stuff we know of or exist in some shape or form, also if anyone is reading this and remembers the games I wanted to see at E3 2013 knows the two obvious games that’ll be on this list so I’ll just get those out-of-the-way now.

Fallout 4

God dammit Bethesda, I know you’re making the freaking game, let us see it already! Also a few other notes, NO XBOX EXCLUSIVE DLC! & no cross gen, only current gen systems please. I’m hoping the gameplay improves on Fallout New Vegas instead of going on Fallout 3(which was the one developed by Bethesda). Few other things I want to see on Fallout 4 is a better third person camera, I like to see my character, after all, what’s the point of having a customized character if I can’t even see him/her, hell, I can’t even see their feet. Which is another thing I hope Fallout 4 has, letting me see my character’s body when I look down. There are some mods that already do this on PC but it would be nice to have that in there day one. Also no dumbing down, please. Skyrim was really shallow because it was dumb downed to appeal to casuals. It’s so bad in fact that personally I find the vanilla gameplay absolutely unplayable, it’s extremely boring.

 

Super Smash Bros 4

Obvious is obvious. This is the game that will make me purchase a Wii U. I want this game to be playable at E3, which will most likely happened for at least the 3DS version since that version comes out in the Summer(fingers crossed that it’s no later than mid July).  Also for the love of god give me my Mewtwo! And like I’ve mention in my previous post I still wan’t to see Ridley just to have someone who’s the complete opposite of Little Mac(Huge and is only good in the air). Now with the two obvious ones out the way lets start with games I haven’t mentioned before.  Continue reading

Top 3 Games I Saw at E3

The last two years of E3 have been pretty underwhelming, I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. However, with new consoles coming to us later this year we got to see plenty of new games, and even new IPs. Some games were pretty boring(I’m looking at you, Ryse) but a lot other games look very impressive. One thing I noticed with a lot of next-gen games is that a lot seem to be going open world. Something I welcome with open arms, I love open world games, hopefully these games are packed with content, and easter eggs as well. For once in a long time I enjoyed a majority of the games, like at least 8 out of every 10; I was very impressed. There were three games that stuck out to me the most though, these three are presented in no particular order. Continue reading

Microsoft E3 Conference Impression

I must say that Microsoft really impressed me with their show. They brought the games and talked about the CLOUDZ a lot. Really smart choice to open with Metal Gear Solid, that was fucking AMAZING! I loved how dynamic it all was. Also laughed at the quick forwarding part in the beginning, maybe a little joke about how people complain about MGS’s length.  Up next was World of Tanks, tanks are pretty neat I guess, same goes for Dark Souls. The first exclusive game they show for Xbone was Ryse.

Visually it was beautiful, but my god does it look boring gameplay wise. It was riddled with QTEs for everything. Last time we heard of this game it was a Kniect game and has been switched over to controller, which is great because that means it won’t be on rails; but if its going to basically be a QTE scripted game why even bother? Killer Instincts was niceeee! I’ve never played the previous ones but I really liked how over the top the narrator was. Then Insomniac back stabs Sony(joking, business is business), with making an exclusive for Xbone, Sunset Overdrive. I wish I could share my impression about what I think about it but instead we’re given CGI garbage that shows us absolutely nothing about the game, not even its art direction because as Insomniac as shown us with Fuse, don’t trust their announcement trailer as an indication as what the game will look like. By the way, I hate CGI trailers, they’re a waste of money, show me the game instead. CGI trailers just lead to misunderstandings on what the game will look like and play.

For you racer fans Froza looked cool, I liked how they brought in that car to the show. I don’t know about cars but it looked really cool. Project Spark was very interesting. I’m a huge fan of LittleBigPlanet, and this seems to resemble it a lot but in a wider scale. For starters its fully 3D(please do this LBP3) and it looks like it has super powers as well. Can’t wait to see more of it; also, Roch Mech ftw.  Microsoft announced a partnership with Twitch for live streaming which makes a lot of sense now. No wonder we didn’t hear about Twitch at Sony’s announcement, guess Microsoft got to them first. Crimson Dragon was just lol,  that looks boring.Dead Rising was fascinating, it looks like their shifting the tone of the game. I’ve never played DR but from what I’ve seen they look pretty silly and have some humor. This seems to be a different case, seems more gritty, disappointing since we have enough of those but regardless the game looks amazing.

One thing I liked about it was the realistic zombie count. By realistic I mean the city is actually crowded with zombies like how real life is crowded with people. I guess you can say they have way more in the game but whatever, it looks great. I did notice that the frame rate dropped every now and then plus that bomb drop with Smart Glass at the end was just really stupid but I’m sure that can be fixed before launch. Was disappointed to hear that it was only on Xbone. Battlefield 4’s live demo had some technical issues  in the beginning and showed that xbone will receive dlc first, I don’t know why, that’s just plain fucking stupid but whatever. Once the demo finally started it was just more of the single player, why? I wanted to see some more of Below, it look different from what Microsoft usually offers.

Then we were up to the game that would end the show. I’m sure everyone was expecting Call of Duty, I certainly was, Microsoft loves CoD. But no, instead we’re given the gameplay premiere of the Call of Duty creators next game TitanFall which is being published by EA. Certainly was interesting, looks easy to play and the mechs looked fun, I like how the mechs go on auto pilot when you exit it. I can definitely see this being the next big thing; again, very smart of Microsoft to lock this down. Overall it was a very impressive show, and a welcome surprised since Microsoft’s past couple of E3s have been garbage. Yes, the games do look impressive but I cannot look passed the anti consumer tactic on the console. Oh, I forgot to mention that the console will launch this November at $500, that’s really expensive, wonder how thats going to pan out.
