Yeah, I'm a bit late on this one, but as usual, I talk about what games I'm looking forward to after E3. Here we are.
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Platforms: 360, Wii U, PS3, PS4, XBONE, PC
When this was first revealed last year, I didn't think much of it, especially when the most interesting open-ended action adventure game that interested me most at the time was Square Enix/Eidos and United Front's Triad/Police adventure, Sleeping Dogs (which I still need to play). But overtime, even before this year's event, I started to grow more of an interest. I always did thought it had a unique premise though, around hacking and spying and from what I see in trailers, it makes for an interesting take on being a vigilante.
Super Smash Bros. 4
Developer: Namco Bandai
Platform: Wii U, 3DS
Finally revealed and pretty freaking hyped (for my own sake). :D New fighters, both from Nintendo's own franchises (Animal Crossing Villager and...Wii Fit Girl), and so far, ONE third party character with a strong Nintendo legacy (Mega Man). Who knows what other characters will be in next (be it first or third party characters), but either way, who's up for a good ol' Nintendo crossover beatdown?
Publisher: Nintendo (funding), SEGA (IP owner and advisor)
Developer: Platinum Games
Platform: Wii U
Controversies aside (as well as the fact that I haven't yet played Bayonetta 1, which I'll get for 360), I'm still looking forward to this one, because after a hiatus from publishing M rated games (and having less than pleasent luck save from when they did it the first time when they still had their old buddies at Rare), I'm still heavily backing of Nintendo's will to save this game. From what I see of footage, it's still has that high octane action, brutality and raunchiness of the first game. So those who think Nintendo will censor this game, can we please get off their back for that? I know their censorship is... weird (they censored Thraja's butt in the NA version of Fire Emblem: Awakening and even censored "Damn" in EU and international Trilogy versions of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for unknown reasons, but there's has been no major reports of third party products being censored by them, not since Mortal Kombat II on SNES), but they seem to be leaving this one alone (didn't think they would mess with it due to SEGA still advising for the game).
Sonic Lost Worlds
Developer: Sonic Team
Platform: Wii U, 3DS
Speaking of SEGA, time to look at their mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog. With his recent Colors and Generations faring him very well, they announce the Nintendo exclusive Lost Worlds. Some compare it to the cancelled Sonic X-treme for SEGA Saturn, others compare it to Super Mario Galaxy. Me? I just see something retro and new at the same time. For some of the new things, I like the sound of Sonic doing some parkour like things, I mean, with how he runs so fast, I'm surprised he isn't vaulting over obstacles.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Developer: Kojima Productions
Platforms: PS3, PS4, 360, XBONE
I may be a more recent Metal Gear fan (though MGS2 got me started, it was MGS3 that made me more of a fan), but I'm still looking forward to several things on this one. One thing is the open world gameplay, though not a new thing in stealth action (didn't Eidos' Thief use that first?), it does sound like a great concept for the series at least, another is Kiefer Sutherland as Snake/Big Boss. I admit, I will miss David Hayter as the character, but I have no doubts that Kiefer will do a good job as he is a pretty good actor.
Other games to note:
Pokemon X/Y (3DS)
Infamous Second Son (PS4)
Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U, 360, PS3, PC)
Rayman Legends (Wii U, PS3, 360, Vita)
