Friday Feeling

So that was E3! After a couple of luke-warm years, E3 was back with a bang this year with a bevy of enticing titles across all formats, current and next-gen. We’ve scoured the internet and found the 5 games that have been getting the most buzz. Read on to find out which…

Post-apocolyptic, RPG MMO? Yes please.

The Division, UbiSoft – PS4, Xbox One

UbiSoft are making a habit of stealing the show at E3. After Watch_Dogs took everyone’s breath away last year, Tom Clancy’s The Division kept the already exhaled breath and blew attendees minds for good measure. A tactical RPG (think Mass Effect) with MMO trappings, The Division sees you trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic New York ravaged with disease and a broken-down society. Already most websites choice for game of the show, The Division will be released on PS4 and Xbox One (no PC, sad-face) in 2014.

Forza 5, Turn 10 – Xbox One

Forza 5 is shaping up to be the flagship launch title for the Xbox One for a good reason – it looks, sounds and feels incredible. Turn 10 are using every trick the next generation hardware provides to create a cutting-edge driving sim better than anything we’ve experienced before – reports from E3 say they’ve done just that. Expect to see plenty more from Forza 5 in the lead-up to the Xbox One’s release.

Konami and CD Projeckt are battling for the “Best Horse at E3” award…

Metal Gear Solid V, Konami – 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One

What a way to kick off E3! Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (mouthful!) was the first game shown at Microsoft’s gaming onslaught – the quality shown ensured it was on gamers lips and minds throughout the conference. Finally confirmed as a next-gen title (as well as the already confirmed current-gen versions), Metal Gear fans have been pouring over the sensational trailer for clues to what may well be Hideo Kojima’s magnum opus. We’ll find out next year.

A Halo-killer from its own creator? Quite possibly.

Destiny, Bungie – 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One

This spot could have easily gone to the similar in gameplay Titanfall (an Xbox One and PC title from CoD creators Respawn) but Bungie’s pedigree and the ambitious nature of Destiny’s epic space-opera gets the nod. While online-only games were quite the trend at this years E3, Bungie’s knowledge of creating exciting and relevant multiplayer AND campaign features means Destiny is hot property. Can Bungie step out of Halo’s massive shadow? Again, we’ll find out in 2014.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projeckt – PC, PS4, Xbox One

The Witcher 3 looks so good even self-professed “Witcher-hater” Matt Reynolds is foaming at the mouth. Foaming with excitement (that’s a good thing, trust me). Boasting an open world bigger than Skyrim, branching quests and storylines, improved combat and EYE-MELTING graphics, Witcher 3 looks like the shit. Just look at that horse. LOOK AT IT! Do yourself a favour, if you haven’t seen a video of Witcher 3 in motion – check it out.

Honourable mentions:

Battlefield 4 (360, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One), Titanfall (PC, Xbox One), Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One), Super Mario World 3D (Wii U), Killzone: Shadowfall (PS4), Infamous: 2nd Son (PS4).

    • The Xbox One is looking great despite its issues with the online side. If they don’t really affect you then the game line up and console looks brilliant. PS4 is shaping up really nicely too so gamers can’t really go wrong with either. We talk about it a bit on our latest podcast, heard it yet? – Dave
