Well, we are officially one month from the Gameslave crew heading back to L.A. for another edition of E3. Last year, only Assimilator and I were able to go, but this year we have doubled in size and welcome my sister ZeldaQueen and Assimilator’s wife, Carebear, to their first E3 experience. I think this time around both Assimilator and I will be a little more prepared on what to expect; last year we were a little over our heads.
So, in preparation to E3, here is a list of things that I am looking forward to:
The new Nintendo console
This is big news, the unveiling of a new video game console will always excite video game fans and there is no doubt that I am going to be giddy with excitement to see what Nintendo has in store for us.
Mass Effect 3
In light of some recent news that Mass Effect 3 is going to be delayed until Q1 2012, I’m still hoping I get to see a glimpse of what BioWare has in store for us for the final chapter of the Captain Shepard trilogy.
Gears of War 3
It’s kind of funny that I’m looking forward to seeing a game that I got to see at last years E3. However, I’m hoping this time we will get to see more of the single player story as well as possibly getting a playable demo.
See a common theme going? It’s rare that we as gamers get so many damn good trilogies. Uncharted is my absolute all time favorite PS3 game and can’t wait to see what Naughty Dog is giving us! November can’t come fast enough!
Elder Scrolls Skyrim
I’m a huge Elder Scrolls fan and have sunken many hours into the finely tuned RPG sandbox. I hope in Skyrim that we will get to see more guilds, to be honest, that was the best part of Oblivion, I loved doing all the quests for the different guilds, actually worked on completing the guilds quests before I even touched the main story.
Star Wars: The Old Republic
I’m not going to lie; I’m a huge MMO fan. I usually end up playing all new MMOs, at least the free included month, but always end up quitting and continue playing WoW. SWTOR is the first MMO that I feel has a good chance of me actually paying a few months of service after the first free month. If it’s anything like Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic that was released nearly a decade ago, we’re going to be pleased with this title.
The big announcement/big video game title
I’m definitely looking forward to the big announcement that catches me off guard, or a video game that mesmerizes me and didn’t even think about it before heading to E3. Last year, that game for me was Mortal Kombat. Wasn’t even thinking much of it, but after I saw it was blown away. I actually recently reviewed it, which you can read here, and gave it a perfect 5/5 score. So what big announcement or video game will surprise me this year, only one month to wait and find out first hand.
