We’re less than a week away from one of the gaming industries biggest events and I’m here to share with you what I hope to get from the big show this year. On June 12th the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 as its called by anyone who constantly has to talk about the expo, seeing as Electronic Entertainment Expo probably becomes increasingly harder to say as the day goes on I’m sure, although I would like to note that leading up to June 12th is when all the major players will be having their press conferences and other nonsense.
Starting Saturday, June 9th EA gets to shoot their shot first and if there isn’t any new gameplay footage or even a release date for their new title Anthem I might have to give up on EA as a whole. Not only does what we’ve seen of Anthem so far make it look exciting but we haven’t seen anything since last E3. Even Anthems twitter feed was a year old until recently coming back alive a few days ago giving me hope that something is coming.
Then on Sunday, June 10th the world gets to see what Microsoft and then later in the day Bethesda are bringing to the table. Microsoft has nothing off the top of my head I could care about. Halo 6… maybe, Cup Head 2… possible, but nothing I can see them announcing to help loosen the blow that the other consoles have been giving them this generation. Bethesda on the other hand leading up to E3 has been dropping some serious bombs Rage 2 being one of them but I personally want more news on Fallout 76!! Some say its going to be MMO some say just a new title in the series I personally would love an Elder Scrolls Online style Fallout game I think that would be awesome.
After the weekend is over, on Monday we have a busy day with Square Enix, Ubisoft, PC Gaming Show and lastly in the day PlayStation and Sony will take the stage. I want Last Of Us: Part 2 to finally get a release date, new game play footage maybe but give me that release date!!! Sony is bringing 3 other games to E3 this year but this game is of my main concern haha, Last Of Us was such an amazing game that I’m very much looking forward to the sequel.
Then to round out the days of press conferences on Tuesday, June 12th Nintendo will close out the show and I’m sure will be bringing the thunder after touting some new Pokémon games, Hyping up their pay to play service Nintendo Switch Online and I’m sure something Mario related. I enjoy my Switch a lot but I’m personally a little Meh for their show this year but I remain optimistic.
Lastly though the game I’m most excited for Red Dead Redemption 2 could possibly be a no show :(. Rockstar isn’t known for going to E3 so unless Sony or Microsoft feel like bringing some news to the table I’m going to have to keep waiting for Rockstar to share with us anthing until the games release in October. I though would be of great joy and happiness if I could get any new news, gameplay footage or story details given to me during this years big show.
Before I go please feel free to tell me what your most excited for at this years E3 leave a comment, or hit me up on twitter @boozymckillaton, I’m always down to talk games and the sort.
