I spent most of yesterday evening watching the E3 media briefings; they’re always fun to watch and you always get to see all the new trailers. I thought I’d do a roundup of the cool stuff I’ve seen so far; there are some games that look awesome and I can’t wait till they’ll come out.
I loved the previous Assassin’s Creed games, but I hadn’t really found anything to be excited about in AC3. Setting it in the US during the revolution just doesn’t appeal to me at all (I was hoping for London or Paris). Seeing these trailers though reminds me that it definitely is an Assassin’s Creed game and that like the others I’ll most probably fall in love with it. Connor still doesn’t seem as crush worthy as Ezio was though.
I’ve only played Halo CE so far, but seeing this trailer makes me want to play the others!
The Tomb Raider games were some of the first games I truly was addicted to, so I’ve been curious to see how this reboot turns out. I like the look of it, but it doesn’t feel like Tomb Raider to me yet; so far it seems more like Uncharted, but with a female protagonist.
The Last of Us
I’m not sure yet about The Last of Us. The gameplay looks so smooth and fluent, but I’m wondering how much choice as a player you actually have (and how much is on rails). The world and the characters look interesting though, so I’ll most probably give this game a try.
This looks like it good be quite fun! It doesn’t seem like your normal type of gameplay, and I wonder how much freedom you get to hack into and mess around with stuff. Interestingly enough the QR code cube a waiter is wearing in the second video actually leads to this website…
BEYOND: Two Souls
Ooh, this looks good. I still haven’t played Heavy Rain, but it’s been on my To-Play list for a while.
Awesome trailer. It actually looks like London (unlike Mass Effect 3, which didn’t look even remotely like it). If it wasn’t on the Wii, I’d be really excited for this. As it is though, I can’t help but think that it won’t live up to the awesomeness of the trailer.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
I haven’t played any of the previous Splinter Cells, even though Cristiano keeps urging me to play Splinter Cell: Conviction (apparently the co-op is a lot of fun). It could be fun, but it looks a little too realistic for my tastes.
Looks like Portal meets Tron.
If I was a kid, I would have loved this! I used to play Rayman with my brother and sister, but we would always have to take turns who could play. Being able to play this new game with up to 5 players is already cool, add to that your powers are determined by what type of controller you have and it’s pretty awesome!
