Hardcore Gamer: With so many games being pushed to 2015, this year remains a shell of its promised self. But can E3 2014 be the bountiful oasis that this next-gen dry period needs?
E3 will probably just announce a bunch of games coming out in 2015. With the disappointments that were Watch Dogs and Titanfall, this year might go down as the worst year in gaming.
Thought both were good games and great new ip's, though definitly overhyped. Shame that watchdog got delayed but probably for the better even if sony had to cancel the ps4/watchdog bundles. Titanfall felt a bit rushed but still a good game, maybe we will see titanfall making a return on e3 on an other gaming platform(s).
Not only were they good games, Ubisoft set a sales record with Watch Dogs. "2014 Releases are Dying?" Clickbait. How can record sales be "dying." Research would be nice.
Titanfall is a lifetime exclusive for xbox consoles
@ ValKilmer I agree. I don't think most of the games announced at E3 will come out before 2015 unfortunately. Unless it's a game we already knew about, but even games like Batman:AK have been delayed as well and that was one I was really looking forward to. I think we still have DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, UFC, Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age coming out this year, although most will come out late this year so it seems like it's going to be a dry summer :/ @ Charydbdis Titanfall lacked the longevity and progression of other FPS games and even COD. For an online-only game that asks full price($60) it should have been more packed and feature complete. @ Ghost_Nappa wat
Disappointment to you, maybe. Those are two of the best games I've played in a long time.
Watch Dogs is amazing game, last time I was enjoy like that playing Max Payne 3 so yeahh for me for at the moment Watch Dogs is GOTY so far..;)
BS. TitanFall is the best shooter created in the last long time. Its way better then COD.
Looks like the ones that are disagreeing never played TF. The game is way more fun than COD but at the same time COD beats out TF because of the simple fact of content. TF lacks overall content to warrant long lasting replay ability. No new Titans, guns, challenges, abilities, perks, new modes all that is lacking. While COD has I guess has more to offer with thelikes of Zombies but COD has always been content rich though. That's do to the fact Respawn is a small studio and growing in man power. The Titan Fall Ip is big despite TF 1 being kinda small. The legs aren't long enough on TF but imagine TF 2 to be 5X as great and equal the amount of content that COD has. The game is already more fun than COD though.
Titanfall was exactly what I figured it would be, a solid introduction to a new IP. Angel is right when she says that Titanfall is lacking in content compared to CoD and Battlefield, but both of those franchises started off rather bare bones as well. Content comes with honing the product, I expect Titanfall 2 will likely blow a lot of people out of the water. Just compare CoD 1 or 2 to CoD 4...CoD 4 blows the previous entries in the franchise right out of the water where content is concerned, and I'd wager that the series has only added content with each entry since, now it might not be as "good" of content but that's another story, the fact is, it's there.
Titanfall isn't even the best shooter this year. That would be Wolfenstein. And those of us that have played Titanfall have most likely moved on. The game was fun for a week or two and now it's not. The people that are calling it the best shooter are all casuals who have played nothing but CoD and Titanfall. It's an adequate shooter with very little to offer after a few weeks.
Everything is better than COD; what's your point?
Well it sounds like XB1 fans are getting Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 2, and Below. Not to mention Phil Spencer said E3 would focus on announced and unannounced games you can play in 2014, hence why Quantum Break and Halo 5 were announce early. Speak for yourself, MSFT is bringing the GAMES!!!
I liked both. Not groundbreaking, but solid 8-9 games. About the releases, yes, it will announce several 2015 games which will be "delayed" to 2016.
This comes to show that neither Sony nor Microsoft were ready to launch last year. Also Nintendo wasn't ready to launch in 2012. This generation started very sloppy, but next year will be much better.
i dont get why people say this. "But, It has no Gamezzz." Well, if that's the case, name a few AAA games that are "last-gen" exclusives. If ps4 and xb1 weren't out right now, what would you be playing on 360/ps3 (Dark Souls 2, NHL 14 and South Park are the only ones i can think of that are last-gen exclusive)? It's not like the 2014 delays haven't effected the 360/ps3 releases (the games that have been delayed are delayed for both next/last generation). So, if you only had 360 and ps3 right now, you would be going through some serious gaming droughts. I have every system (ps4, vita, xb1, ps3 and 360//nintendo has nothing to offer me) and some weeks i feel like there's nothing to play. I would hate to imagine what it would be like only having the 360/ps3/vita. Idk about you guys, but i'm happy to be playing the superior (console) builds of games like Watch_Dogs, ACIV, and other 3rd party multi-gen games while at the same time dipping into exclusives like Infamous and Dead Rising 3. A simple solution for those that are disappointed in their 2014 consoles: Sell them, forget they exist, and re-purchase them in 2015. While you do that, i'll be enjoying all the games that DO manage to release in 2014 on XB1 and ps4.
Makes Mario Kart 8 & Super Smash Brothers look all that much better then.
Let's be honest, Smash Bro's was ALWAYS going to look better. It's ****ing Smash Bros....
Those games weren't disappointments to me. All of these delays though is making the next-gen launches seem like a waste of time though.
and then those game will actually come out early 2016
I totally agree with ValKilmer. I think all we will see from the big 2 is footage of games for 2015 unfortunately. Not the end of the world though. The year is half over and a LOT has been delayed but the usual suspects are still going to dominate the fall.
imagine a COD or sports game delay... A man guesses it pays off to copy paste if you avoid these issues.
E3 is going to be the same we get year after year. Random, fancy looking trailers for games coming out well into the future when they could have released them 6 months before release. I feel this is going to be a poor E3. People will be debating who "won" saying X showed more cool trailers than Y but in the end no-one will "win". We will just see games releasing E3 2015 and beyond. I would rather see what's coming out before then (even if it isn't as exciting as seeing the fancy trailers)
If The Last Guardian isn't mentioned..the game will be lost forever
Sony has some great potential titels which could make a comeback or may be lost such as wardevil, heavenly sword 2, eight days and agent
Don't tell me that. I will be heartbroken if The Last Guardian is lost forever.
Well hopefully they announce a fair share of games to be released this year, and at least have some of them launch before October/November. All three consoles have little to offer until September, when Destiny comes out. We can only hope The Last of Us remastered edition and Sunset Overdrive launch early in the Summer, otherwise there simply won't be much to play for a while. Thankfully though, the handhelds have some sweet games coming out.
If 2k football comes back in some type of form, generic, NCAA, or NFL it would be the best e3 since 2007. If Shenmue get's some kind of news like HD remakes or glimmer of hope for part 3 it could be huge. If its going to be more shooters and Nintendo characters well it will be just like the past decade. Bad or good depends on your personal taste.
Is there really a chance of 2K Football coming back?
probably not, the dev team that worked on the glorious 2k5 prob are not together anymore.
I still believe 2k is coming back, you don't scan football players for the eco-motion technology for nothing etc....there's a reason why 2K has been so quiet about 2K football, they know the demand for the series to return is gigantic and they know just announcing the return of 2K football at E3 will sell millions of copies by itself. It doesn't matter if the old 2k5 developers aren't there anymore, if NFL2K15 looks anything like NBA2K14 that's a win win right there and also knowing the gameplay will already be there is just icing on the cake.
@akuma where did you hear that they were scanning football players? Also I agree I think 2K will come back or another franchise might be announced at E3. The money to be made in the NFL market I think is too much to be ignored, someone has to make another football game in the next year or so.
I will sh#t bricks if NFL 2K gets announced... :P
Yea 2014 has been deflated with the delays of some major games: Witcher 3 Batman AK The Order 1886 The Division I have a feeling with the announced games of 2015, they might be pushed back to 2016 since there will be too much competition in 2015.
2014 is shaping up to be a decent transition year for the new consoles. we are getting some decent exclusives this year, good multi plats. 2015 looks to be probably the year that defines this new generation. I mean... the amount of AAA games slotted for 15' is mind blowing...
Its not been a disappointing year so far, still some great games coming this year that we know about. Looking forward to finding out at e3 what else we can expect this year, hopefully something good will be announced to come in july or beginning of august cause thats the only slack period atm.
So many of Sony's first party studio games are not showing up to E3 makes it hard to justify a ps4 purchase. Can Sony afford to let Microsoft and Nintendo win E3? Probably not, but it's nice to know they're twiddling their thumbs and relying on hype alone to sell their systems.
Let's not jump to conclusions.. some 2014 games have yet to be announced.. just be patient. E3 is around the corner. If there were no first party games releasing this fall, i'd still be fine with it 'cause third party games have me covered. The likes of Shadows of mordor, Destiny etc..
October 7th begs to differ.
There are still many games for me to buy even with the delays so I ain't worry: Killer Instinct Season 2 Below Forza Horizon 2 Sunset Overdrive Halo Anniversary (more than likely at this point) Hyrule Warriors Smash Bros Drive Club Destiny Assassin's Creed
I hope so because I don't see much I want in 2014 yet
The gaming community is becoming so annoying. Yes, The Witcher, BM AK and The Order have been delayed. Big deal. There is still like 13 or more games coming out in the next 6 months. In fact, this is one of the biggest launches in terms of numbers in a long time. FarCry 4 Halo 2014 Sunset Overdrive (which looks like one of the coolest new ips in a long time) Assassins Creed Unity Destiny Cod Battlefield Boderlands The Pre Sequel Sniper Elite Alien Isolation The Crew DriveClub Dragon Age Forza Horizon Evolve Evil Within Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor Project Cars Enemy Front Lords of the Fallen The Last Of Us remaster Metro remaster And a ton of downloadbles. Also, not showing games that might be coming out that have yet to be shown. E3..... Games that missed 2014 BM AK Witcher Division The Order Stop being over dramatic.
Oh yeah, because everybody is just clamoring for the release of Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor.
What about nintendo? I dont wanna be "that guy" but their stuff is looking really good too this year.
The author is talking about the lack of exclusive titles for the next gen consoles which only the wii u will have this year. I hate remaster editions ugh always not as good as the original. Yeah I will play those games on PC on a sale hell yeah.
What does this even mean?
Comparing with last year, 2014 releases doesn't look so appealing, but we already have great games like Dark Souls 2 and Mario Kart 8. I'm looking for Destiny, Dragon Age, Driveclub, Sunset Overdrive, Project X and Bayonetta 2, but yes, last year we had a lot of games, because it was the end. of a generation.
I find it funny that 2 developers claim both of their games coming out this year, shutting down rumors of 2015 release, but but but.... The rumors are right though. http://www.spawnfirst.com/n... http://www.onlysp.com/techl... Rumors have been telling the truth this year, making developers who try to debunk the rumors liars. How ironic is that? E3 will be great this year, but 95 percent of the games shown at E3 will be release next year. I guarantee that a few more games will get delayed by the end of the year. Nintendo is looking to release all of its games this year for the Wii U, to win back fans. There will be a few Wii U games like Zelda will come out next year.
I'm just as excited about E3 as the next guy, but Most games announced at E3 never come out the same year as it was announced. So this E3 will be what we will look forward to in 2015. That brings up the question, what really is coming out for ps4 (thats the only next gen console I won so far) in 2014? Barely anything. I'm hoping Destiny doesn't get delayed and turns out to be amazing. That will hold me down for a few months. That and the Last of Us Remastered multiplayer.
its hard to beat last year , TLOU / GTA 5 just to new a couple
Well PC gaming has won the year as far as exclusives/multiplatform games go. Meaning almost every single multiplatform game will come to PC that includes The Division. But its exclusives this year that will drive PC forward: The Long Dark Darkwood Dread Out The Forest Starbound Hawken Just to name a few, don't be surprised if MGS 5 with the recently released Ground Zeroes releases for the PC at $60 or $40.00
Dread Out? Really?
Well Dread Out is a perfect choice for the gamers that have been waiting for the next Fatal Frame game and for people like myself who decided to go with PC gaming to get our survival horror or just plain horror game fix. Hey not everybody likes a military shooter.
No, I'm not arguing against PC gaming or indie games. I'm not saying that military shooters are all good games, because they definitely aren't. What I mean is that there are many, MANY indie survival horror PC games that are MUCH better than Dread Out.
Thanks for the clarification yeah Amnesia or Outlast are better than dread out
A man will be enjoying Diablo 3 Ultimate, Driveclub (free edition as a man isn't THAT into racers but will have fun with his friends on a next gen one), Destiny, LoU remastered, AC Unity, NHL15, FC4, Shadows of Mordor, and possibly a WiiU with all its games (MK8!!!!)
So basically what I read is get a Wii U if you want to play the best exclusives this year.
