Daniel’s E3 Wishlist
Whether E3 lives up to the hype or not, the expo is always worth watching for fans of gaming. I’ll be glued to the conferences and hoping these three wishes come true.
Hidetaka Miyazaki is the game designer behind the brilliant, weird, and polarizing Dark Souls trilogy as well as the equally enjoyable Bloodborne. The future of Dark Souls may be up in the air, while Bloodborne 2 is a safe bet to make an appearance at Sony’s press conference. But I’d like to see something even more exciting than a teaser for a game we already know is coming out. I’d like to see something completely new from Miyazaki, a designer who has been mastering one genre for the last decade or so. I honestly can’t see him moving too far away from the unique formula that his games have become famous for, but that would make it all the more surprising. Oh and the game should be set in space. Because space is cool.
Cyberpunk 2077… in Space?
Space is cool and so is the future, cybernetic implants, guns, and sci-fi. I don’t think we will see much of the stars in Cyberpunk 2077 but the game should deliver another brilliantly built world by the folks at CD Projekt Red, alongside the aforementioned sc-fi setting and first-person shooting gameplay. I wasn’t a big fan of The Witcher 3’s somewhat clunky combat but I’m excited to see what the developers do with gun combat. I want to see some strategy elements to this game as well, both in combat and out of it, so that the game stays interesting for the dozen of hours that we’ll all be playing it, probably.
Different Coloured Controllers for PS4
It may seem like PS4 has a lot of different coloured controllers: red, blue, see-through blue, see-through red, gold, see-through white, jet black, steel black, midnight blue (i.e. almost black), and green camo (i.e. mostly grey with some dark green). But take a closer look – aside from blue, red, and their see through counterparts, Sony seems to have a clear fear of colour. Can I get a nice green, purple, or yellow controller? Is that too much to ask?
