Star Wars the Old Republic is bringing a new expansion back, The Fallen Empire. It is coming out in October and it’s free. Yes, it’s free. I was surprised about this, and it should be interesting. It looks like a new faction, and new planets to explore. Once again, it’s free!
A short trailer, Mass Effect was shown. A short trailer it gave some interesting tidbits about what could be. Enjoy!
We’re all skeptic about DICE making Star Wars, but the trailer does look good. It shows off many interesting abilities and it stays true to the Star Wars experience. Jetpacks, AT-AT, AT-ST’s and many vehicles made an appearance in the trailer. It also looks like an orbital bombardment will be at your disposable. However, nothing can be confirmed, it does look exciting.
Get all the great moments in EA’s Press Conference.
Some great announcements came from Microsoft Press Conference. The best ones were the backward compatibility of Xbox 360 games. This is by far the best news, besides seeing Master Chief again.
Everyone’s favorite dying too much video game has been announced. Welcome back to a bleak world full of despair and you dying a lot. Dark Souls has never been for a the faint of heart, or people that just gives up. Will you try this game?
It’s good to see a familiar face. Fallout is back, and it looks better than ever! Besides the obvious graphical improvements over the last game, and it is substantial, this one also give more fun features!
Choose Your Character:
Yes, you can change your character how you like, and be a female too. The video shows how easy it is, and it’s done in the game. No more going to another menu to modify your character. This time it is done in real-time. Check it out:
Yes, you can now change any, or most weapons in the game. No more getting the same Laser gun, now you can change it to a musket if you really want. The options seem numerous. Laser chaingun anyone? Or nuke machine gun! Oh, my!
Shape the World:
This is another awesome feature. You can now dismantle materials in the world and build your own house the way you see fit. Besetheda will also let you build downs and create trade routes. Your like long dream of being the mayor of Nuketown can finally be realized.
That is all that they showed, but it was a lot. I would give Fallout a perfect blend. I want to drink more of it, I may get my overdose of digital caffeine from this.
Dishonored is back, and it is taking place at a different location. Set back into the shoes of the great Corvo as he slices his way (or not) through levels of deception and a city full of despair. Emily is a playable character as well. She is getting some interesting abilities as well. The Outsider has bestowed her with powers to retake her kingdom or at least burn down what the usurper has stolen.
This is going to be an interesting ride, and robots seem to be upgraded from the original game. This does take place 15 years after the original game. Emily is all grown up, and mad as hell. Get ready to blink, and do more crawling in air ducts this will be a fun ride!
Are you excited?
Yes, Doom was officially announced and shown off on Sunday. You could hear cheers for the return of the shooter that made FPS popular, and it goes back to what made it great. This is a fast-paced shooter. From the trailer and demo there looks to be very little or no story at all, and that is fine. Today’s shooter have gotten too much story, and it has effectively cut down on the gameplay. Depending on your level of experience, you can finish Call of Duty single-player in one sitting.
I am really excited to see this coming, and I hope to be playing it for many hours.
It’s great to see the BFG back in action. What do you think?
Yes, the first of many E3 showcases. This one is great some many great things came out of it. Doom, Fallout, Dishonored 2, my head is exploding with excitement! I am happy about Doom going back to its roots. Fallout looks amazing, and Dishonored will be another great game. E3 has officially kicked off this event with a bang!
