The dust has settled from the EPIC event that is E3. Amazing new innovations in technology were witnessed and many instant-classic video game titles were unveiled for the first time. We’ve collected ourselves after E3 and have compiled this list of what we’re looking forward to most:
When information was leaked about Fallout 4 so close to E3 2015, I think every gamer in the world was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief. Then, when Bethesda ended their E3 press conference with Fallout 4 and showing the Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition which comes with a working Pipboy, I knew I had to have one. With the new build feature introduced in Fallout 4, players will be able to build little communities throughout the wasteland. Fallout 4 is going to kick ass, and the best part is that it will be here in November.
Star Wars Battlefront:
At the Electronic Arts E3 2015 press conference the company showed off a video of some in game footage of Star Wars Battlefront and the crowd went wild. The gameplay featured the famous Battle of Hoth from the perspective of a footsoldier, a fighter pilot and at the end a jedi. It was pretty epic to see the T-47 Airspeeder lasso an AT-AT and send it crashing to the ground. At the very end you see Darth Vader appear and choke someone with the force. Just when you think it’s over, that’s when Luke Skywalker shows up, and the two engage in battle.
When Microsoft showcased the upcoming game Rare Replay at their E3 2015 press conference, everyone who grew up playing Rare games were ecstatic. Rare Replay is a collection of your favorite Rare games all in one place. Some of the games include Battletoads for the NES, Killer Instinct Gold, Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Blast Corps. among others.
When Microsoft showed the world their augmented reality device called the Hololens, I think it’s safe to say that we all thought it was an awesome piece of tech. Even if you had never played Minecraft before, which is doubtful if you play video games, you could see the potential the potential fun to have not only in Minecraft, but across other applications as well. The way that one player was able to view the world like a God while the other players build and explore really added a whole other dynamic to the gameplay of Minecraft, allowing players to know what was lurking underground without having to find out for themselves.
Horizon Zero Dawn:
When I saw Horizon Zero Dawn at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference I was just blown away. Actually I was blown away by most everything that I saw from Sony at E3, but Horizon Zero Dawn really was one of the best looking games I saw at this years E3. The game takes place in a world that looks like it’s ancient, kinda like tribes of people instead of cities. The twist is that this isn’t the past, it’s actually the future. Somewhere along the line, humanity must’ve screwed up big time because now it seems like sentient animal-like robots roam the earth as the dominant species.
