E3 2018 is coming in a little over a month and we've listed our thirteen reasons why it will be an event to remember for a long time.
Please Avengers game be good!
I really want it to be good especially after how amazing Avengers: Infinity War was. Really itching to play a Marvel game now, can't wait for the Spider-Man PS4 game.
I feel really oversaturated with Marvel movies but I would totally dig a good game :)
Super hero movies are lame. And this E3 will not be good because it’s nearing the end of the generation.
Yeah right real time with a MENU system which includes DEFEND? And ATTACK? Falling for the same marketing trick that Square used before the original FFVII the movies ALWAYS LOOK real time otherwise it looks boring. They have to get rid of selecting attack from a menu before I'm convinced it is real time. Not that I want it to be real time.
why do all these people see the final fantasy trailers and NOT remember that square would never show turn based menus in the past. But in the past the games would still come out turn based? They even called the games action adventures in the commercials. People will never learn if they don't remember. example original commercial saying action adventure with NO menus but it came out turn based: https://www.youtube.com/wat... At least this time square is showing you menus this time what will be your excuse this time?
Surely it just needs to be balanced, like all things.
Infinity War was amazing I hope the game follows through
I certainly hope so. Sony and MS won't have to spend time convincing to buy a new console or gimmicky accessories, they can just deliver on games that can only hope to dethrone God of War
"they can just deliver on games that can only hope to dethrone God of War" good luck to ms on that one their games have been shocking this whole gen with id say the best one being sunset overdrive
Eh, Gears of War 4 was pretty solid and Forza Horizon 3 is an all around fantastic game. All around they've definitely struggled to put out many good exclusives, but there's definitely some as good or better than Sunset Overdrive. FH3 would be their best IMO.
Good luck is right, PS exclusives set the bar stupidly high this gen, between them and Nintendo it's a uphill slog for Microsoft.
I don't understand why PlayStation only gamers disregard to how good Forza Horizon 3 is. However, Gears 4 was average at best. Solid visuals let down by weak story and tired gameplay.
@AmstradAmiga Racing games will always be a niche market. No matter how fantastic a racing game is, it will not be a system seller except for a small minority. Forza IS a great game, but having only ONE great game compared to Sony's dozens upon dozens of system sellers is not much to write home about for Microsoft.
Cyberpunk 2077 should have a much bigger scope than God of War.
I hope so GOW seems like more of a movie than a game so far to me. Kind of let down with that game. Cyberpunk I hope is Witcher with a diff setting.
It's going to be a heavyweight throw down of AAA games. Microsoft are going to have to come out swinging hard. You'll get cinematics and reveals for the usual triple threat (Halo, Gears, Forza). We're probably going to see game play of Crackdown (lets see if they mention "the cloud"); they'll also probably have some big third parties in their corner as well - probably gameplay of Anthem and Cyberpunk will debut on the Microsoft stage. Microsoft have to go all in on the games front this year. Sony, will be on the offensive this year, they've had great E3 showings over the past couple of years, so they'll want to maintain momentum. They won't have to do much to get fan's hyped, with their line up of exclusives, however this year they will have to show gameplay of those games we've already seen trailers for - TLOU2, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spiderman etc etc Hopefully live playable demo's on the show floor. They'll have to nail down release dates for games like Dreams, and they'll also have to have something special for PSVR as well, as that's beginning to stagnate somewhat. Nintendo will do what Nintendo does best with it's exclusives, but the focus I think will be on the number of third party games that will be coming over to the Switch.
Nintendo really needs to focus om getting gamers interested in their psid online service thst launches this year. Smash bros and the rumored GCN virtual console are great ways to start, if they drop a couple more exclusives and some bayo 3 gameplay theyll be golden. Sony just needs to show gameplay of its heavy hitters like you said and maybe drop one new exclusive and sony will be golden. Microsoft...has alot of work to do, their services are great but their upfront weaponry is light, underwelming or predictable. Its either their low on games to show, using sly marketing tactics like video launch live xbox exclusive or something like that, poor presentations of games like crackdown or scalebound and the usual suspect of halo, gears, forza, fable. They gotta do absolute work this e3
I'd really like a way to finally play Skyward Sword.
cyberpunk on ms side ? lol why would they want to advertise that game for a system that's barely selling any consoles.
People say that about every upcoming E3 conference
To be fair, the last few years have been quite eventful. Last years was a bit meh for me though. I don't know how they could possibly top 2015.
Last year's E3 was poor throughout on all fronts
I've been saying this for a long time, but 2015 isn't nearly as great as people say it was. The big thing about it was the trifecta of Shenmue 3, The Last Guardian, and the Final Fantasy 7 remake. The Last Guardian was good, but it wasn't quite what most people were hoping for after so many years. Shenmue 3 still has another six to eighteen months before release, even though it has already been almost three years. The Final Fantasy 7 remake was reported to have started over last year and it could be another three to five years before it is out. On Nintendo's side their showing sucked. Microsoft's wasn't anything special. Overall I'd say the show was underwealming.
I only got excited for 1 game in 2015. Shenmue III and that won't be out til next year.
2016 was probably the best on Sony’s front.
It’s easy to look behind and say how you feel about past E3s because hindsight is 20-20. But every time a new upcoming E3 approaches some outlets always hype it up as it’ll be the best one.
Nintendo's Smash reveal and the tournaments for it and Splatoon are going to be the highlights, obviously. I know quite a few people who aren't even into Smash that are looking forward to all the info and intensity that'll come out of that. Maybe we'll even see some big names that don't play Smash as much anymore come out of their pseudo-retirements to give it a go. It'll be cool to see how they "f-air" in the new game.^_- Also, Treehouse Live being there for the live presence, in lieu of a short stage show that could [and has, in the past] go horribly wrong, will be a great pairing for the details of things after their Direct announcements, as always. [I don't know why people keep ignoring Treehouse when they say Nintendo's "Not at E3 anymore". That's LIVE ON-THE-SHOW-FLOOR CONTENT.] If they were doing another Nintendo World Championships special then that would be even better, but that'd be too much to squeeze into just 3 days.XD I don't expect anything strange or gimmicky now that they've already unveiled Labo, so this E3 should be all about Switch announcements for them. They've gotta keep pushing hard to make sure the momentum doesn't fall much.
F-air haha i get it. But seriously i loved smash 4, if they just port it over to switch, change a few system slightly (rage), rework clones (please ganon needs to be ganon, not angry falcon and please whatever you do do something about lucina jeez), balance some characters mostly bayo and to a degree cloud and add in a couple new characters and modes and it'll be golden for me.
I think Metroid Prime 4's official reveal would outshine Smash's. But that aside, as much as I love Smash, I'm far more interested in seeing some more of Death Stranding (assuming that's really happening). That, and From Software's game that was teased at the VGA last year.
Im cautiously optimistic.. Theres usually a bunch of leaks that spoil a lot of it..
I think it's pretty clear Sony and Nintendo will knock it out of the park, Nintendo with revealing Smash, probably showing Yoshi, Fire Emblem, maybe Bayonetta 3, Pikmin 4 and Metroid Prime 4, along release dates and pretty meaty details for those games. I suspect something like the next games from Monolith Soft and Retro Studios will get announced. Maybe a few remakes or ports of Wii U and other Classics, probably SM3DW, W101, not sure what else. Maybe Starfox Zero could be reworked to fit Switch. Sony will reveal gameplay for TLOUP2, which will be huge for fans and them, a Days Gone gameplay segment and release date announcment would be a huge deal too, along with Death Stranding and Dreams, oh and massive stuff from Ghost of Tsushima, possibly a surprise release date of either late 2018 or early 2019. Medieval should also get gameplay and a solid release date. Bluepoint will likely announce Demon's Souls getting a remaster that will be due very soon and that will probably feed into the announcement of the next From Software PS4 exclusive, which is either some new IP or a Bloodborne/Demon's Souls successor. I think Insomniac could announce their next game, which is likely to be the next Ratchet game. Sony Japan and London could also announce major new exclusives for PS4, maybe Eight Days or a new Getaway game are launching in 2019 and Japan has a massive Final Fantasy style action RPG, western focused coming next year. Sony are going to make sure the next 17 months is packed with awesomeness for PS4, oh and Northwest Studio will show off a huge PSVR game. Sony could also announce more new Studios have games in development, which could be a bit of a tease for their future. I don't expect anything major from Microsoft, besides the next Halo, Forza Horizon, maybe a teaser for the next Gears, other than that it will be 3rd party focused. Cyberpunk seems like a lock from 3rd party, I think Bethesda and Ubisoft's games could be interesting, like Division 2, hopefully a new Prince of Persia, maybe a new Rayman, something of a new Switch exclusive, with a more serious style than M+RKB. Bethesda will hopefully announce Starfield, maybe a new Doom and some new IPs. I think Starfield could get revealed before E3, like a teaser or a cinematic, just so they get ahead of any leaks. I'm hoping for surprises all around, great Gameplay and not too much chat when games should be shown. I expect to be disappointed when it comes to the chat. Oh and it would awesome if Sony had Agent working on stage, along with a Deep Down demo and release date :P.
Oh nooo that’s every year
No it wont. This gen is endind. There is no time for big reveals. From one it will be more of the same, for the other it will be more trailers, maybe gameplay from games that are being made. This gen got maybe two years. I dont expect big reveals. Maybe some remake, and all those games that come every year....
Sony releases its biggest games in the third quarter of the generation. It's not over yet me thinks.
Its true and Sony already got amazing coming that time like Death Stranding, Days gone, TLOU2 and so on.
Last November was the halfway mark for this generation. Still plenty of time for big games
I just hope they dont want to feed us any new hardware or gimmick
I thought you liked Microsoft.
I thought we talk about all 3 recent years we got pro, switch, X, SLim, S and PSVR
Now i agree there. I don't want to see any new hardware just yet as i have splashed out a shitload of money over the last few years on mid gen upgrades and stuff, All i want to see is more excellent games. I mean what could new hardware possible give us right now that we dont already have ?, except for another hefty price tag.
No mention of The Last of Us Part II?? Niel Druckmann has confirmed we will see gameplay! I’m betting it blows our minds.
I'm more interested in how the story will turn out. A pretty big lie was told to Ellie and I want to know how she'll handle it once she knows, or even if she already knows as-is and is just playing the waiting game to see if he'll tell her. Also, whether or not she's REALLY the only one.
I always prefer gameplay over story but I’m also very excited to see the story. I have my own theories with what I think will unfold.
I think we'll see a Demons Souls remake. Perhaps with additional content (new levels). It was my favourite game on ps3.
Final Fantasy 7-Remake is not coming out at least a year after Kingdom Hearts 3. Square-Enix isn't going to have their big sellers face-off against each other.
I'm pretty confident FF7-remake is so far away that we won't see much for the next year or two concerning it.
I'm not expecting it until 2020, that doesn't mean they won't drop another trailer before then. That said they'll likely keep it out of this E3 so they can keep hype around KH3. Maybe PSX we'll see it again.
it'll be a throwdown of many developer's biggest titles: - Sony with all its AAA exclusives ensemble, not sure about new announcement though since they still have hella lots of upcoming exclusives - Nintendo possibly announcing Pokemon and more news about Smash and Metroid - CDPR's Cyberpunk confirmed - possibly Rockstar's RDR2 (although they've been known to avoid E3) - almost certainly Bethesda's new space RPG Starfield - EA's Anthem - SE with Tomb Raider and mayybe KH3 which still has 2018 release date window maybe not as much new announcements as the one back when FFVIIR+Shenmue+The Last Guardian, but they sure are putting their biggest titles on there.
Considering all the rumors I've been hearing and all the games I'm expecting in the near future, this really should be a killer E3 this year (we've had mediocre ones for several years now).
I'm interested to see Cyberpunk 2077, Starfield, something about FFVII remake, Beyond Good & Evil 2, Ghost of Tsushima & Shenmue 3. I'm not hyped but that may change when I see these games & whatever surprises pop up.
Borderlands 3, the Avengers game (please be good), Cyberpunk 2077, Starfield/Bethesda games?, Devil May Cry 5, Ghost of Tsushima, Anthem, FromSoftware game?, The Last of Us 2, Kingdom Hearts 3?, Metro: Exodus, New game announcements, etc I think this E3 could be good so I'm excited
I have big hopes for Borderlands 3, personally. If they can return to the good points of the mechanics of 1, without sacrificing the excellent storytelling and humor of 2 onward, then they'll have my money. I stopped playing after Borderlands 2, specifically because the mechanics meant my health and shields were basically wet tissue paper, unless I spent an eternity farming B.A.R. tokens to upgrade them, or used specific broken gear combos which basically meant that they were ALL I used, which meant no weapon experimentation and far less fun for me. Also, they made Assault Rifles useless [as a Roland user, that ticked me off almost as much as his fate did], and Bandit weaponry is rarely if ever useful outside of uniques etc, so that's an entire waste of a weapon maker type. Clever more on paper than in practice, and hardly practical at all. If they can either make BAR tokens easier to get so that I can upgrade stats faster, or do away with the bullet sponge enemies and weak player shields/health and rebalance things to be fun again, then I'll have another new reason to grab a PS4 ASAP. Assuming it doesn't come to Switch, of course, which it very well could if Gearbox has been paying attention to all the cash devs have been making off of it.
If Resident Evil 2 Remake and Shenmue 3 get a release date for this year and the Shenmue 1 and 2 HD for around summer ill be in heaven.
Even after the insane year ps4 is gonna have they still have an insane lineup to squash the competition through 2020
Don't overhype it. E3 is often a letdown.
lol only 1 game from that list will be in 2018
Cautiously optimistic, seeing how hyped last year was, yet how mostly flat it ended up being.
Sony & Nintendo are gonna bury Microsoft's Xbox One into an early grave.
I advise not to get overhyped.
no dmc hype? SHAME ON YOU BOI! that plus fromsoftware's game and Death Stranding are my top 3 picks
If Pokemon Switch isn’t at E3 I’ll be pretty disappointed.
There's a void open that easily be filled by anthem, if bioware play their cards right. I hope they learn all the lessons from bungies idiocracy.
Borderlands and d3 for switch all I care for. Rest I will be excited for as well but the two above are what I really want!
I wish all 3 did a theatre presentation like Sony, but super excited none the less. Bethesda is supposed to have an incredible line up I'm hearing.
No console announcements means boring E3...they don't need E3 to announce games. New games are announced all the time.
Things I hope for this years E3 - 1.) I hope the Avengers game is NOT an online MMO like the rumors have been saying but something where you can pick from over a 100 Marvel characters and play through their entire comic line from their worst enemies to there most important triumphs. I'll be ok if it takes 200GBs to install just as long as it is NOT an online only game. 2.) The people behind the Bloodstained need to stop dragging their asses on when the game releases, according to their twitter page, a release date was supposedly announced at the end of March and now here we are in May. Stop dicking around Iga and get the game done. 3.) Please for the love of all that is holy give us an update on the Resident Evil 2 remake. Its been a year and a half and nothing. Either let us see some sort of development or stop giving fans a false hope if it was never going to be made. 4.) Since Crash, Spyro, and Medevil have either already gotten complete remakes or theirs is coming I would like to see remakes of these: Fatal Frame 1, 2 & 3. 5.) A new Souls game or a sequel to Bloodborne. 6.) Skyrim - I don't want to see them milk this cow again, the milk is dust and the tits are falling off. Enough already! 7.) Want me to buy a Switch? Then announce that A Link Between Worlds is getting ported over to it and while we're at it, give us a Skyward Sword port as well. 8.) Give us an update on the ‘Final Fantasy VII remake. 9.) Devil May Cry 5 news, just give us anything. 10.) Darksiders 3 update. 11.) A new Punchout game. Are you listening Nintendo? 12.) Luigi's Mansion 1 & 2 port to the switch. 13.) Prime 4 update with announcing ports from 1, 2 and 3 over to the switch.
shadows die twice!
Also, I would give my left nut for a free roam area 51 horror conspiracy game. Just putting it out there.
