E3 2014 Day 2 Impressions

posted in: Game News 0

As E3 properly gets under way, we’re beginning to find out more information on the games themselves.

Mortal Kombat X
Release date: 2015
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

I loved Mortal Kombat 9 for its innovative spin on fighting game campaigns and I look forward to seeing what Ed Boon and Netherrealm Studios has been up to with regards to their story lines. They’ve already revealed that Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade have a daughter, Cassie Cage. Then there’s this insect human hybrid being, what’s the story with her? And of course, who will be the main villain this go around? Is it Shinnok and his silly hat?

FYI: Marty O’Donnell fired, PS4 sells 7 million

Announcements

  • Marty O’Donnell announced he was fired by Bungie’s Board of Directors (via Twitter)
  • 7 million PlayStation 4 units have been sold through April 6th (via PS.Blog)
  • Final Hours of Titanfall sheds light on Respawn’s early troubles with the title (via NeoGAF)
  • Sony sells all of its Square Enix stock (via Siliconera)

I’ve always enjoyed Marty’s efforts with the Halo games and I’m looking forward to his work on Bungie’s next title, Destiny. It would probably make the most sense for him to end up at 343 Industries but I hope that isn’t the case. I want him to take his talents to other studios and other franchises. How about a shot at the next Mass Effect game? Or just branch off to something completely different like a cyberpunk themed game from the likes of CD Projekt RED?

I’ve seen these “Final Hours…” interactive stories pop up over the years but I never gave them the time of day. I don’t know why either because I appreciate Geoff Keighley’s in depth work and I love interactive written works.

7 million units is nothing to scoff at and I hope Sony continued success. I just wish there were a few more big titles for me to sink my teeth into. (I realize I haven’t played inFamous: Second Son but still.)

FYI: Ground Zeroes Priced & GT6 on the Moon?

Halo: Reach Campaign Review

I don’t like Master Chief.

After finishing Halo: Reach’s campaign, I realized that I enjoyed Bungie’s space marine adventures a lot more without the green super soldier at the helm.

I have nothing against him per se. I simply don’t enjoy how Bungie handled his adventures with its religious overtones and talking plants. But let’s not dwell in ‘why nots’ and look at why I think Halo: Reach’s campaign was Bungie’s best.
