E3 2019 Day 2 – my picks of interest

Halfway through, what tickled my fancy today?

Not as excited by a lot of today’s news as I was by Day 1’s, but there was still so much goodness to be viewed! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Watch Dogs Legion

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Watch Dogs. In a weird way, it felt too ‘Assassin’s Creed’ samey grind for me.

That said, over the last few years, apparently Ubisoft has lifted their game big time, and I keep being tempted to give it a go. Too much backlog has spared me so far, but these games keep coming to Game Pass, and surely PS Plus will get a shot soon.

But a Watch Dogs where they have ironed out the kinks, and bring in recruitment and multiple characters? I am not pre-ordering, but I will be keeping an eye on Watch Dogs Legion, be sure of that 🙂

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered

Excited for this one, but I am not 100% sure why.

My Final Fantasy is VII. That is the first one I played, and as such it has a special place in my heart. In a lot of ways, XII is probably my favorite of the series, but that’s a different story.

But now, the ‘missing’ remaster is coming to basically everything. In a lot of ways, I want to get this on Switch and make it my portable Final Fantasy machine 🙂

But backwards compatibility is finally being taken seriously by Sony. Decisions, decisions. Either way you go, I am glad this fan is finally getting the remaster treatment like the rest of the PS1 classics!

Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind

So technically revealed prior to the Square Enix presentation, it was a flip up between including Re:Mind or Final Fantasy VII Remake.

While I still feel the difficulty required for the Kingdom Hearts 3 Platinum was lowered considerably, the fact that even as busy as I was I could still earn the trophy should demonstrate my love for the series.

There is more coming. If you know what the story is about from the trailer, then you are amazing.  All I care about is more Kingdom Hearts is coming, and I want to play it 😀

The Last Remnant Remastered

When Square Enix makes a hit, they make a hit. The Last Remnant was released for XBOX late 2008, and never seemed to make as big an impact as its Final Fantasy counterparts.

But it should have.

I still have The Last Remnant on Steam. Not a fancy remaster, but I can play it still I believe. Last year, the remaster was released on PS4, possibly as an apology for it never coming out on PS3 like it was supposed to?

Either way, you can play it now on the Switch. If you are short of deep narrative adventures, give this one a look. It deserves more recognition, it really does.

And that’s about it for Day 2 and what piqued my interest!

What about you? Are you really excited for something that I haven’t mentioned?

Until next time,
