Another E3 is almost over and this year I’ve been watching as many panels as I can. It feels a lot like Christmas! I know that on various social media platforms it’s cool to hate on everything that you don’t like, but I’ve never really wanted to participate in that sort of promotion, so I’d much rather talk about what I DID like.
I own a PS4, but not a lot of PS4 games. I’m hoping to change that this year (once I actually get my PS4 set up). Last of Us 2 wasn’t that appealing to me (the genre and gore hit too close to home) but I am looking forward to Kingdom Hearts 3. Weird, since I’ve never played the first ones (but I am planning on picking up 1.5/2.5 Remix and fixing that).
As far as PC games go, well. That’s where I’ve been hanging out for so long that it’s just comfortable. Ooblets and Two Point Hospital have been on my steam wishlist for a good while now. Both of them are pretty exciting to me.
Just Dance 2019 – yep, I want it. I watch a fair number of Just Dance twitch streams, and even though I know I won’t be any good at it, I’d love to give it a try. I also signed up for the PS4 beta of Trials Rising, I probably won’t get in, but the game looked neat. One of the games I didn’t think I’d be interested in that I am suddenly VERY interested in, is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Yes, it’s because I can play a female character.
It’s RARE that I get to be a female character in those types of worlds (aside from the obvious games, like Tomb Raider) and I’ve never played an AC game before, but it has been suggested that I pick up Origins, so I will start with that one. The game looked beautiful, and even though there is killing and gore (both things I don’t handle well) it still interested me enough that I want to play. The Crew 2 also looked neat, but I know very little about it.
Square Enix had a lot of neat games shown, but besides Kingdom Hearts (already mentioned above) none really appealed to me. Bethesda’s announcement of The Elder Scrolls 6 was pretty exciting, but I feel like that game is probably so far off, there’s no reason to be excited (yet). I’m also not a fan of Fallout, so Fallout 76 and Fallout Shelter on the Switch doesn’t interest me.
Cyberpunk 2077 looked amazing. It might not be an instant buy for me, but I want to watch others playing it for sure. The world looked so detailed and rich, I instantly fell in love. Besides, what’s not to love about cyberpunk! Unravel 2 also looked really cute but it’s a game I’d rather see go on sale first before purchasing.
Right now I’m waiting for the Nintendo presentation to start, and yes, I am a huge fan of Nintendo in general. I don’t do well with shooting and killing and gore and blood, and Nintendo has a calmer type of gameplay that suits me. I am hoping for a proper Switch Animal Crossing announcement after I was let down last year. We’ll just have to see how that goes.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
