So Video Games has E3, but Board Games has Origins! Well, and Essen, but that’s later in the year, so I am excited now!
So I know that E3 is now ‘properly’ underway. Many lucky, lucky people are now getting hands-on time with many of the games we have seen trailer after trailer for over the last few days. But with my game of the conference (yeah spoiler) it looks like some Australian journalists are counting themselves very lucky with their time on Cyberpunk 2077 for very different reasons.
The E3 timed Nintendo Direct was as amazing as we all expected. There were a couple of new standouts for me, the first of which being Fire Emblem: Three Houses for the Switch. Lucky it’s next year, I already have one hell of a queue!
Two gorgeous games that are as opposite as they can be. Both Ghost of Tsushima and Déraciné have made my must-play list, and not just because they are both gorgeous. Honestly, there was so much I was already looking forward to the Sony presentation was fairly flat for me this year, but I felt that there should be a Sony Honorable Mentions as these games should not be looked over lightly.
The Last of Us is an amazing game. If there was ever an example of games as art, The Last of Us has to be on the shortlist. At the moment it’s still hype building, but I can’t wait to learn what has happened to Joel and Ellie.
Oh, we have been waiting for this. The moment a lot of old Resident Evil fans have been waiting for. Resident Evil 2 remake has an official release date, and it looks AMAZING.
I have played every Fallout game there is, with one exception. I have seen it go through multiple changes. There seems to be a real effort with Fallout 76 to retain the Fallout feel, but I am not sure if I am on board yet.
Doom in 2016 did something I didn’t think a shooter could do anymore – let me thoroughly enjoy myself. Everything about it took me back 20 years to memories of LAN parties and speed run boasts. And now it’s officially getting a sequel!
CD Projekt Red absolutely blew the world away with The Witcher series, and ever since the title reveal in 2013 has had the gaming world chomping at the bit for Cyberpunk 2077. We are still chomping, but we have something new to dig our teeth into.
Kingdom Hearts 3 has been technically delayed, but now has an actual hard release date! An actual mark your calendar date, even a bit behind what we were hoping for, is great news for fans and a welcome bit of news.
