E3 2015 has been a pretty jumpin’ place so far. Let’s check it out together!
Doom: Doom is shaping up to be pretty great. While it’s not exactly what a lot of original fans wish, there’s no denying it looks awesome and is going to have a very popular community.
Dishonored 2: No surprise here. Arkane Studios did a great job with the first one and its DLC. The sequel will allow you to play as two different characters each with their own abilities.
Fallout 4: Arguably the biggest thing to come out of E3, the Fallout 4 presentation was fantastic. To cap it all off, it’s coming out on November 10th, 2015. That’s this year!
Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility: Obviously not a game, but you can’t deny how big of a deal that is. Especially when the competition not only can’t do it, but also is charging people to play their old games. The crowd reaction is why video games are awesome.
Dark Souls 3: Good to see the popular series get more love, and on more than one console.
Rise of the Tomb Raider: The much anticipated sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot is shaping up super nice. Look at those ice effects!
Sea of Thieves: A new title by Rare, it looks to be some kind of pirate MMO. The game looks gorgeous. Sign me up!
Mass Effect: Andromeda: New Mass Effect was definitely expected, but boy is it nice to finally see it. Unfortunately, we’ll still be waiting a year and a half to play it as it comes out Holiday 2016.
Need for Speed (Tentative?): This should just be called Need for Speed Underground’s Most Wanted Hot Pursuit, because that’s what it sure looks like. It also has FMV so definitely nothing can go wrong.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst: The long awaited sequel to Mirror’s Edge is finally coming! The best part? No guns in this one. The one thing that stopped the first game from being perfect.
Unravel: This brilliant indie-ish platformer is definitely going to make you cry.
Call of Duty Black Ops III: The multiplayer is shaping up to be legit. Too bad none of us will ever be that good to pull off chains like the ones in the trailer.
Star Wars Battlefront: Fuck yes. This game needs no introduction. Both videos brought smiles to fanboys all over the world. It doesn’t hurt that it looks like it’s shaping up to be a fantastic game.
South Park: The Fractured, But Whole: What a great surprise out of Ubisoft. The Stick of Truth was one of the best games of 2014, so I am ready for more. Only Matt and Trey could think of that genius title.
For Honor: Sort of Dynasty Warriors, mixed with Chivalry? Ubisoft’s new IP looks pretty fantastic. It seems like the devs just went on a Deadliest Warrior binge. Hopefully there’s Maori DLC.
Trials Fusion: Awesome Level Max: Reddit the game.
Anno 2205: Sim City on the Moon, but first you have to get there. Get to work, you bum.
Rainbow Six: Siege: Finally, finally, finally. A new Rainbow Six game, and it looks amazing. If you get it on Xbox One, they even throw in Rainbow Six Vegas 1&2 for free. Also, Terrorist Hunt is back!
Tom Clancy’s The Division: The Division appears to be shaping up quite nicely since it was revealed about three years ago. The multiplayer looks really unique. This one drops next March.
Assassins Creed: Syndicate: This one looks brilliant. Of course, we’re all a little cautious from Unity, but it’s a different studio. Look at those cinematics! You can also play as a badass female. Ubisoft must be paying overtime.
Rigs: Our first look at a new way to game. This looks cool. The real winner is whoever doesn’t throw up everywhere.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End: Possibly alluding to the end of Nathan Drake’s tale, the fourth Uncharted game is looking amazing. The fact you get to drive a vehicle in an Uncharted game is going to set a new level for Naughty Dog. Hopefully a Last of Us follow up is next year’s!
The Last Guardian: Holy shit the game exists! The game that managed to skip an entire console generation is back in our face. 2016 is the new release, but do we all actually have dyslexia and it said 2061?
Trackmania Turbo: Yo, this game looks FAST.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands: Nobody really knew what this was, but boy does it look great. An open world Ghost Recon? Sold.
Horizon: Zero Dawn: The new IP from Killzone’s Guerilla Games, this caught everybody off guard. A warrior cavewoman hunting down robot dinosaurs with beautiful graphics. Lock it in.
HITMAN: Allegedly a kinda-sorta reboot, we’re seeing an all new title. While many thought Hitman Absolution killed the series, developers I/O claim they have listened to feedback and will be releasing continuous new missions and hits for one single price up front. Pretty amazing. Plus he totally throws a crowbar at a dude.
Dreams: Media Molecule’s (LittleBigPlanet) latest title allows us to pretty much create whatever the fuck we want. I can’t wait to see other people’s nightmares.
Destiny: The Taken King: The first big expansion of the game that will allegedly be a decade long. Swords are cool.
Firewatch: You’re a park ranger caught in the aftermath of the 1988 Yellowstone Park fires and your only companion is a woman on a walkie talkie. I really hope this isn’t going to end with him being crazy, but it probably will.
Street Fighter V: Sony was smart by securing the popular fighting series as an exclusive. Hopefully its millions of fans embrace that.
Shenmue 3: No way. No goddamn way. It’s actually being made. Well, Kickstarted. But it’s been funded!
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Sony went all in and announced the final piece in the mythological triumvirate. They still had another hour left after this announcement, and I was waiting for God himself to take the stage. Posting the press conference video because audience reactions were awesome and at least forty people cried which made me laugh.
Also posting the GameTrailers crew reaction. Has anybody checked to make sure they’re all still alive?
Legend of Zelda Tri Force Heroes: The next 3DS Zelda is a co-op game? Pretty sick. Still waiting on that Wii U version or whatever..
Metroid Prime: Federation Force: While sewing together their elaborate E3 executive puppets, Nintendo basically said “We should make a new Metroid….but into a SOCCER GAME!” The puppets didn’t respond with their thoughts, so here we are.
Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival: Animal Crossing Mario Party with figurines.
Just Cause 3: Finally a sequel to one of the best open world games ever made. From the sound of it, Avalanche has listened to the fans and is basically letting us blow whatever we want the fuck up after attaching a helicopter and a human to it.
Kingdom Hearts 3: 2015 will mark ten years since a proper Kingdom Hearts sequel came out. At least it’s shaping up to be amazing. The first confirmed world is Tangled and it looks like summons are all based around Disney Parks. SIGN ME UP.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: Deus Ex Human Revolution was pretty alright. This one is looking to be pretty awesome. Hopefully we can now bionically replace our heads.
Forza 6: I don’t even like car games. Just give me the best goddamned wet pavement I’ve ever seen.
Lego Dimensions (Portal Trailer): Lego Dimensions is scooping up properties left and right. Now throw in the Portal gun. It’s going to be ridiculous.
Halo 5 Guardians: 343 did a great job taking the reigns, so I’m excited to see their first dedicated entry on the Xbox One. A new multiplayer mode called
Big Team Battle Warzone joins the fun this Fall.
Super Mario Maker: Do I even need to explain this? Go and buy a Wii U, idiot.
Star Fox Zero: A new proper sequel to Star Fox 64. I was 6 when the last one came out. Never give up, trust your instinct.
Cuphead: Literally the only game you’ll need on this list. Look at how fucking cool that is! That can’t be a game.
