E3 Thoughts Part 3
Now that E3 is over, I do have the last part of a couple of games that I missed and would like to mention briefly in this text. There aren’t many more games I’d like to mention about but needed to close the articles up. If there is anything that I may have missed, feel free to leave a comment.
It’s not a game, but it’s a near perfect feel good moment that occurred at Xbox’s E3 when Keanu Reeves came out to announce Cyber Punk 2077 release date. Someone in the crowd shouted to Keanu, “you’re breathtaking”. Keanu replied back saying you’re breaking as well to the person that said that to him. That person was a YouTuber who specializes in Xbox games named Peter Sark. A positive statement got him a free copy of Cyberpunk 2077 collector’s edition for Peter.
This body modification, cyberpunk game from Projekt CD red looks really nice and very appealing. This comes out next April, and I’m looking forward to this game. Plus with the addition of Keanu Reeves as a character in the game, a musician turned assassin, the looks to be a candidate for game of the year in 2020.
Square Enix’s action adventure game loosely following the Avengers series of movies and characters. I read about people not liking the look to the characters, stating that they don’t look anything like their movie counterparts. I am willing to forgo this detail as long as the gameplay is solid. Plus I think that they look fine as is. Just the core Avengers were shown, and I’m sure that there will be more of a character reveal as time goes on.
The Sinking City
An open world H.P. Lovecraft story that follows a detective in 1920’s Oakmont, Massachusetts. The trailer and story sound promising. I just need some gameplay to go off of.
You play as a man trapped in a time loop, trying to fix and solve, well I have no idea. I like the top down perspective and mystery behind this interactive thriller. I’m guessing that this game isn’t going to be long but have multiple endings to increase the replay factor of the game. I can always go for a game where I’m trapped in time, like Oxenfree.
As if FromSoftware doesn’t have enough games that I can barely get past the first few levels with, here is a game being brought to us by Hidetaka Miyazak and George R. R. Martin. I’ll have to once again, wait and see what this gameplay is going to be like. It does look great, and I am intrigued by those two working on the game.
Watch Dogs: Legion
This semi-future, dystopian London looks like it this was the game that Watch Dogs should have been in the first place. The setting of a big brother government, London, seems really appealing. I liked the concept of anyone that you can recruit is part of your crew, and you can play as them. The addition of permadeath to anyone you hire does add new factors of ways having to recruit and keep your team going should they die.
