I saw some things that interested me, for sure. Dead Rising 4 has me very hyped. Sun and Moon look solid, Zelda looks phenomenal. I'm looking forward to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as well, though I'm worried I might not be able to invest a ton of time into an RPG-ish game at this point in time.
Still, it looks these next years or two will be pretty solid for gaming.
This E3 was rather weird, I thought. At first, I felt like Sony won, but then I realized that, like, two of their games had actual release dates, so for all we know it could be 2018 before we get to play the rest. I actually felt like the PC panel was the best of the bunch with Microsoft coming in second. I liked the Zelda gameplay, but that is literally the only game that exists that I would want for the Wii U. I am hoping that the NX has a really strong line up whenever it launches. I want to throw money at you Nintendo, I really do!
I'm rather upset with Dead Rising 4
, so far. They replaced Frank West's voice actor without even contacting him about reprising his role and he's done the role in everything including: Dead Rising 1, Dead Rising 2 DLC, and Dead Rising 3 Spin-off DLC. They've also managed to make Frank act very unlike himself. I'm really hoping that the plot twist is we are playing as an imposter Frank West, but I dunno. Mafia 3
is the must have game and winner of the show for me. I've always been a fan of the Mafia games and I'm really excited with how they've managed to make a living city, plus they've made lieutenants that react to your choices. Watchdogs 2
also looks sick, but I recognize that I am one of the rare people that really enjoyed the first one despite all the controversy (with the graphics).
I'm also looking forward to Tyranny
which is being made by my favorite game studio, Obsidian Entertainment. For some reason, Tyranny hasn't had a lot of marketing and is off most people's radar because they don't even know it exists
Tyranny takes a core concept that I've always wanted to play in a video game, "You work for evil and evil has already won by the start of the game" It sounds super promising
