Six of my most anticipated games from E3 2013 – In no particular order
Ok, so not strictly first announced at E3 2013 (instead being first revealed in E3 2012), this year has still whetted my appetite for this game. I mean, the level of control you look set to have over things via that little mobile device – It’s staggering.
2) Murdered: Soul Suspect
Think L.A. Noire, but with the twist that you’re a dead, ghost detective. I really enjoy puzzle, crime solving games, and with the added twists this game is going to have (such as possessing other detectives and walking through walls) its looking very interesting indeed. And SquareEnix is involved! – Whats not to want?!
3) Batman Arkham Origins
As a fan of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, I was very excited when Origins was announced, although slightly dubious as to if WB: Monteal could pull off the brilliance of Rocksteady. However, all gameplay released so far has put to bed those worries; the game looks mighty impressive. I personally can’t wait to see how Batman reacts to his enemies in this early setting, especially considering the Joker is re-appearing! (Although unfortunately not with the amazing voice acting of Mark Hamill).
Despite it being only a 30 second trailer which reveals NOTHING more than that the game is in development, the mere mention of this game is exciting enough. I mean, imagine it – Star Wars! On the Frostbite Engine!
5) Kingdom Hearts 3
It has been far too long since a Kingdom Hearts game was on a proper console. The first two games, which I played on the PS2, were truely fantastic games that meshed the seriousness coming from the creators of the Final Fantasy Series with the comical aspects of Disney. Despite the fact I was rubbish at the first two and haven’t played any of the ones released on handhelds (so probably won’t get the story), I am still VERY much looking forward to this game.
6) The Order: 1886
This one is still in the very early stages for me. The trailer is intriguing, I like the idea of this Steam punk-Esq world where the Knights are London’s protectors, hunting down evil-doers. Whether or not they pull it off is another matter entirely, so I’m going to wait until gamplay is released before passing more judgement on it. But from the opening trailer? Not a bad idea.
Other games which didn’t quite make this odd list of 6 but should still be looked for:
The Division, Thief and Ryse: Son of Rome.
My biggest let-down of E3?
No Fallout 4 announcement!
The trailer for the new Mad Max game is horribly tantalising considering no one knew what the game was before the trailer ended and it was INCREDIBLY akin to Fallout, just with cars.
