pre-E3 2012

The Electronics Entertainment Expo is just around the corner, here are my thoughts on what I’m interested in seeing.

####

Most Anticipated 360 game: Halo 4

I would say Bioshock Infinite but I we’ve already seen videos and images about the game and I have a rough idea of how it’s going to go down. Halo 4,  however, I’ve seen hardly anything about. You know it’s going to appear at Microsoft’s conference and I hope 343 bring some single-player action. This could be really exciting if they pull it off.

Most Anticipated PS3 game: something from Insomniac

From a consumer’s perspective, I don’t really know enough or care enough about Sony’s side of gaming since I don’t have a PS3. However I love Insomniac Games and I hop they come up with something at this E3.

Most Anticipated Nintendo game: a new Metroid title

Again not sure if there will be anything but my favorite Nintendo franchise is Metroid and I hope there is something new from this unappreciated series. And not Other M 2…

Most Anticipated PC game: Crysis 3

The first trailer they released for Crysis 3 looked really interesting. “People liked the jungle from the first game and we liked the city from the second but how do we combine the two? I know let’s take the jungle to the city!”

Most Anticipated DLC: Skyrim’s Dawnguard

Does this category count? I have to give Dawnguard something, it’s more Skyrim, which is brilliant!

Hopefuls:

  • Grand Theft Auto V: It’s a new GTA game, of course the hype is high.
  • Shadow Complex 2: Loved the first, it’s about time for the sequel.
  • Mirrors Edge 2: pleeeeease DICE? :P

###

Others I’m looking forward to seeing:

  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Perhaps the Winter Xbox dashboard update?

Also which pre and post E3 shows to watch? Adam Sessler or Geoff Keighley? :P GameTrailer’s had some good exclusive Skyrim footage last time. And Reggie needs to be there again:
