Tony’s E3 Wishlist
E3 is upon us, and it’s time for our wishlists. I won’t drawl on with a long intro. IT’S E3, BABY!
If you’ve frequented our little site, you’ll know I’m a Sony gamer. That being said, I won’t gush about the big four–SPIDER-MANOMGFINALLYAGREATSPIDEYGAMEONPS4–sorry, just had to get that out. E3 typically holds exciting surprises and I’d like to see appearances from a few companies.
CD Projekt Red – Cyperpunk 2077
It is confirmed to be at the show, which makes me quite giddy after the reception Witcher 3: Wild Hunt received, and Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be larger, longer, and deeper than the studio’s best-selling title. If that doesn’t speak volumes to the quality of what is to come, CD’s track record for community involvement and fan engagement should speak for itself. We’ve got literally zero information outside of what I’ve just outlined and of course, gameplay at this echelon is to be expected. Get on it CD Projekt.
Sucker Punch – Ghosts of Tsushima
Another title already confirmed to make an appearance, little is known about Sucker Punch’s departure from its widely successful inFamous series. It boasts an open world in Feudal Japan (an era Assassin’s Creed still has somehow yet to cover) and that in and of itself is enough to stoke the gaming fire inside me. PushSquare reported on some official artwork worming its way out just before the event. Bring it on, Sucker Punch!
Spiders – Greedfall
Spiders and Focus Home Interactive games have sordid pasts. Those that have played their games either love them for their heart, or hate them for their low production values. Focus’ latest outing with Vampyr is proving an absolute blast to play, though rough around the edges (review to come later this month) but Greedfall is a point of intrigue for me. All we have is a teaser trailer and some mild information from GamesRadar. Nevertheless, I really would like to see more from this title.
Experiment 101 – Biomutant
Teased at last year’s expo, Experiment 101–now a part of THQ Nordic–revealed their newest ambition, a lovechild the mascot and comedic likes of Jak and Daxter, combat from Devil May Cry, and an open world with consequences, a la The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The 20 minute tech demo has remained in my Watch Later playlist on YouTube so I can keep watching it, hoping to see something I might have missed previously. It features a robust character creator so players can craft their own Rocket Raccoon, an even more robust weapon crafting system, and ability customization by way of physical and psychic mutations. There’s a lot going on and I cannot wait for more gameplay and release date.
