With E3 just right around the corner, there’s so much being said and so much to speculate as to what to look forward to in these next upcoming days. Of course returning to the conferences will be EA, Sony, Microsoft, PC Gaming show, Ubisoft, Bethesda, and last but not least is Nintendo’s Treehouse. Here are some games expected at E3!
One of the best Adventure Role Playing Games on Xbox, Fable is a beautiful open-world fantasy game with elements that couldn’t compare to other games. Fable was so unique where almost every move you made had its own consequences good or bad. You truly molded your life with the actions you made from a child to an elder.
Get yourself ready for a funky fresh and fantastic Dreamcast original and the original Xbox successor. Jet Grind Radio/Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future are by far among the coolest games I’ve come across yet. These are two games I think everyone should at least play twice.
One of the greatest things about the Fallout series, aside from its exceptional and addicting gameplay, is its story. It’s what makes Fallout, Fallout. As you play through the newer games, you’ll probably stop to think about why did the world become a wasteland. Why are all of the vaults full of either dead people or psychopaths? And who the heck are all of the people who think they’re in charge? Here are some quick tips on what exactly happened in the past before, who created the vaults, the Pip-Boys, the robots, and details about these factions that seem to have the most influence.
Fallout New Vegas brings in new elements that Fallout 3 lacked. Along with those elements, we revisit the west coast with a bountiful amount of Fallout 1 & 2 influences as well as influence from the original Fallout 3, Fallout: Van Buren, that was being published and then scrapped by Interplay before Bethesda bought the rights to the franchise. Fallout New Vegas is particularly enticing if you’re not big on the idea of playing Fallout 1 or 2 yet desire pre-Fallout 4 exposure to the series. This, of course, assuming you’re a newcomer.
Bethesda brought back and revived the Fallout universe by introducing to us Fallout 3. Fallout 3 was and is one of the most amazing games to be released in gaming history and it was seen as game of the year by many gamers. Fallout 3 is known for it’s unique character leveling system along with almost unlimited gameplay, hours can be spent into this game and still be intriguing and even after beating the game it still has replay value. But what exactly makes this game worthy of playing before you get into Fallout 4?
Compulsion Games have come up with quite an interesting adventure. I recently got my hands on Contrast, and it is an fascinating puzzle game with a dreamy noir twist. You play as a mysterious girl by the name of Dawn as you help out your best friend Didi, the main protagonist of this story. You both venture through a mysterious yet magical town inhabited by what seem like mostly shadows. Although it’s almost like a ghost town, it’s lively enough in its own ways.
The game that started it all. Fallout takes place in the year 2161, 84 years after the Great War between USA, USSR, and China which resulted in the destruction of the world. You play as the ‘Vault Dweller’ from Vault 13 in California, safe and sound in your vault, until the Overseer, leader of Vault 13 gives you the task to wander the waste to retrieve a water chip for the vault’s water processor – which is slowly, but surely dying out and risking the dwellers’ exposure to radiated water. Fallout introduces the well known S.P.E.C.I.A.L ruleset that controls your character’s skillsets. The gameplay style is turn-based combat with an isometric view. Fallout is the start of the journey as we learn about the Wasteland and watch it develop to what it will become in Fallout 4.
This year was the first time in E3 history that Bethesda had their own press conference, leading to nothing but major hype for Bethesda fans to look forward to in the upcoming season. Bethesda spilled out everything they’ve been working on for years and made our dreams come to life: a massive revealing of almost all of their popular franchises, starting with the return of Doom, which was just absolutely glorious in all it’s gory goodness. They also revealed Dishonored 2, with a few new elements and a surprising twist in the series, as well as a couple new updates on Battlecry, including some new information on an upcoming beta. There’s also an expansion coming to ESO that reveals two new cities to explore. Last but not least, Fallout 4 was announced with a lot of big news for the fans of the series. Bethesda also mentioned a new community hub for all things Bethesda that will be “Bethesda.net.” Bethesda really seemed to be prepared for E3 this year, and I have to admit, for their first time ever they were quite flawless and had no disappointments.
