E3 2014 Day 1 Impressions

Sony’s E3 presentation was chalk full of games but it was marred by a half hour’s worth of multimedia nonsense. Nintendo’s E3 Digital Direct thing was a tighter presentation and upon reflection, I think they may have had the best as well.

Everything is in 2015?

posted in: Game News 0

With Batman: Arkham Knight joining the likes of The Order: 1886, Halo 5, Quantum Break and The Witcher 3, I’m left wondering what is left for 2014.

We know Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will stay the course and I’m pretty sure Electronic Arts will ensure Battlefield: Hardline makes its autumn launch window. Then there’s Destiny which (at this moment) is the last man standing as far as I’m concerned. But I will not be shocked if it misses its launch date either.

This will leave a huge void to fill. By the end of the Xbox 360’s first year, we had the launch of Gears of War. And by the end of the PlayStation 3’s first year, there was Uncharted and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

With all these cancellations, I’m left wondering where the next big original IPs will be from both first party and third party developers.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Trailer

Check Batman out. Check out that armor, that cape and that car. Check out all those shiny new graphics and more textures than you can shake a stick at.

That looks incredibly detailed and I hope they will show off more diverse locales like in Arkham Asylum. I want to see what a next generation Mr. Freeze lair looks like. Show me next generation icicles.

I’m ready for a new Batman: Arkham game. I skipped Arkham Origins and I want to believe that Rocksteady will wrap up their involvement with this franchise in a spectacular way. Thankfully this is a late 2014 game which hopefully means it will be available for FutureShop’s E3 2014 pre-order promotion.

FYI: New Batman game announced, 6 million PS4s sold

Batman: Arkham Knight Announcement Trailer

TitanFall Launch Trailer

I’m so glad to see Rocksteady’s final Batman title coming exclusively to next generation platform. The Dark Knight can finally cast away the shackles of limited RAM and spread his wings and glide. I didn’t pick up Batman: Arkham Origins and despite my criticisms against Arkham City, I have high hopes for Rocksteady’s upcoming title. It’s just a shame that they decided to use a CG trailer along side the announcement.

That TitanFall doesn’t scream “next generation” to me. It looks like it would be a lot of fun but there’s just something about it that says to me: “This could have debuted two years ago on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3” and I would have believed you. I’ll probably pick it up on the cheap on Origin to check it out.

Sony surpassed the 6 million mark already? That’s pretty damn impressive.
