After a shaky disturbance with the Final Fantasy XIII announcement, I have finally moved on and am very impressed with E3 this year.
Games I have my eye on --
Fallout 3 -- X360, PS3
This game looks incredible. I recently picked up Oblivion which gave me some faith in Bethesda and WOW this game really looks to be stepping it up. I really can't wait for this game to come out and will definately be picking it up the first day, though most likely for PS3.
Fable 2 -- X360
Another game that I knew about but REALLY caught my eye at E3. I love the feel of the world from the trailer they showed as well as the online aspect of it in which you can invite friends into your game world.
It looks like a really enjoyable game and I can't wait.
Resident Evil 5 -- X360, PS3
This game looks another amazing shooter and I was even more impressed by the showing at Microsoft's conference.
Gears of War 2 -- X360
This is a no-brainer. The game looks just as outstanding as the original which I have been playing lately. Really looks to make all the great things about the first one even better. Can't wait.
Final Fantasy XIII - X360, PS3
This game looks more amazing than ever after seeing the trailer that was shown as Microsoft's conference. It truly looks massive immersive and unbelievable. This is another game that I believe will be much better on the PS3, but congrats to the all the 360-only owners who are going to get to witness it as well. I just hope the multiplat doesn't damage the game's quality.
Infinite Undiscovery - X360
I wasn't really aware of this title coming out, but am excited. After all my complaining, I DO have both the 360 and PS3 and I guess it's good that I'll get to see more use out of my 360 for the new upcoming RPGs. This game doesn't look quite as good as the other RPGs coming out for 360, Star Ocean, FFXIII, and The Last Remnant, but still holds quite a bit of promise in its own right.
Star Ocean: The Last Hope -- X360 (timed exclusive ?)
I have been a fan of the Star Ocean series for quite a long time and just can't wait until this comes out. Graphics look great and I don't really have much more to say.
The Last Remnant -- X360 (timed exclusive)
This is one of those RPGs that doesn't come off a well-known series but really looks like it could be really good. I'm not expecting another AAAA title, but I really do have a lot of hope instilled in this game.
Resistance 2 -- PS3
This game continues to surprise me because of its scale. The first 1 had a similar focus and I can only hope this game is as awesome and addicting as it looks and promises to be. Insomniac has gained some of my trust lately, and I hope they don't disappoint.
I love the idea of two separate campaigns, one for SP and one for co-op as well as the astonishing 60 player online (which doesn't seem quite so big anymore, eh?)
Littlebigplanet -- PS3
I have become increasingly interested with the innovation that this game promises. If nothing else, it seems like it will absorb hours of my time and though I'm not really familiar with how exactly you create the levels, it looks to have a lot of promise.
Killzone 2 -- PS3
We didn't get to see as much of this game at E3 as I had hoped for, but I definately am still keeping this high on my radar. Between this and Resistance 2, I see much promise this year on the FPS front.
Infamous -- PS3
I'm not very familiar with this title either, but it definately caught my attention. Hope to see more of it soon.
God of War 3 -- PS3
Well, obviously this was perhaps the biggest gun showed at Sony's conference. I enjoyed the first 2, but when I saw the E3 trailer showed for 3...it blew everything else of the day away. It wasn't very long but it looked unbelievable and I can now add myself to the long list of people who desperately want this game.
MAG - Massive Action Game -- PS3
WOW, I don't know what to say about this. 256 player multiplayer? Unheard of but I can't wait. This is definately going high on my radar in the future.
Anyways, those were my main E3 focuses. Here are my top 10 upcoming games period:
1. Final Fantasy XIII
2. Final Fantasy Versus XIII
3. God of War III
4. Fallout 3
5. Resistance 2
6. Gears of War 2
8. Fable 2
9. Star Ocean: The Last Hope
10. The Last Remnant
