The main thing I see all platforms to be focused on is next gen consoles. With all the rumours about the Xbox 720 and PlayStation Orbis, the companies at least have to acknowledge that they are being planned. Personally, unless a new Zelda game is in the works, I couldn’t care less about the Wii U! Rockstar HAVE to show some more of GTA V. Whether it’s a new trailer or some gameplay footage, the fans need some more information. I also have a strong feeling Microsoft will be announcing a handheld. This is based on absolutely nothing, just getting a Nostradamus vibes!
Since its release Kinect has always interested me, but I still don’t have a reason to buy it yet. Most hardcore gamers want nothing to do with Kinect and Microsoft really need to change that. Last year Crytek showed a trailer for a game called Ryse, a First Person Hack ‘n’ Slash set in ancient Rome, this type of game would defiantly encourage 360 gamers to finally pick up a Kinect, myself included. I know Valve said they didn’t have anything to show but I have to hope that’s a publicity stunt, with rumours about HalfLife 3 and the Steam console about, I can’t help feeling at the last moment they’re going to storm in and steal the show. Minecraft XBLA updates. It’s mentioned in a few loading screens and although it has many advantages over the PC version, it has room for improvement. Longshot here but I would love to see a new Oddworld game. It’s been too long and I need some more of Abe! Whether it’s an entirely new game or the original series released on XBLA and PSN, this universe should not be forgotten.
Most Excited For
The thing I’m most exited for at E3 is more information on the Skyrim DLC, Dawnguard. Skyrim is one of my all-time favourites and I’m just starting my second playthrough. Rumours are it will feature a vampire storyline, because of the red eyes in the announcement picture and ‘Dawn’ being in the title. I’m excited no matter what it’s about!
