Games we’re most excited about

We’d write down all of about 50 games if we could, we’re THAT excited about this event. We tried to cut it down to only a few in this post. Also worth mentioning is Batman: Arkham Knight, Battlefield 5, Far Cry 4 and Mass Effect 4.

Alien: Isolation

Alien Isolation

It’s been a while since we hunted some Xenomorphs, and we can’t wait to get back at it. This game seems to be all that, and will raise the bar when it comes to tense, action-filled good old fashioned alien hunting. Developed by Creative Assembly due for release in late 2014, Alien: Isolation will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, and will be set on a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Invoking the spirit of Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 film, you’ll be tasked with avoiding the ruthless Xenomorph stalking the shadows.

“In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survival horror,” said Alistair Hope, creative lead at Creative Assembly. “Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted.”

Watch this trailer and tell me you’re not already shitting in your pants! That cursed ping-radar device is back. Ping……Ping……Ping…Ping..Ping.Ping! Ping! PING! PING!!!


Dragon Age 3: Inquisition

We featured the trailer here a few weeks ago. We’re all set for E3 to get a deeper look into some gameplay footage, and more trailers!

Originally Dragon Age III: Inquisition) was announced by Mark Darrah on the official BioWare blog on 2012 September 17. Set to arrive in late 2013, Dragon Age 3 will be built on a new RPG engine using DICE’s Frostbite 2 technology as a foundation. According to a post from executive producer Mark Darrah on the game’s official site, the development team contains many of the same people that have been working on the franchise since Dragon Age: Origins.

Mr. Durrah was able to confirm a few details about the game as well. The game has been in production for two years as of its announcement in September, 2012.

BioWare will be using a new engine (FrostBite 2) which will allow BioWare to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East, customizing armor and followers using FrostBite 2 was discussed for Dragon Age 3.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is one of our top games to look forward to 2014



Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The trailer leaked online a few days before the actual release date, and it looks freakin’ awesome! Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare envisions battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. It seems we can expect every piece of future war tech known to man which includes exosuits, highly specialized drones and hover bikes to name a few things.

The game is set to be released on November 4.  (Next-Gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One)


Halo 5: Guardians

Halo 5

What was the biggest tease of E3 2013? Most definitely the moment when Master Chief pulled off a dusty cloak to reveal his iconic armour as he stood in the desert. At Microsoft’s press conference, Chief made his first next-gen appearance, and now even more about the sequel has been revealed. There was no gameplay yet, but we have a feeling we’ll know much more about Halo 5: Guardians come E3 2014. And if a next-gen Halo isn’t enough to get you excited, we don’t know what is.

There’s also rumours that a remastered version of “Halo: Combat Evolved,” “Halo 2,” “Halo 3” and “Halo 4” will launch in HD ahead of the upcoming Halo 5. Sad news is it may only be released fall 2015. Meh.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Also mentioned as one of our top 10 most anticipated next-gen games of 2014, Geralt of Rivia returns to his old habits of wandering the countryside and taking part in all sorts of debauchery, monster hunting, and saving the common folk from some ill fate. In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Geralt has more freedom to explore the vast open world. But just because you’re free to go anywhere you want and do as you please, doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences. Your decisions still impact the world around you, so if you decide not to save that village from monster attacks, that village just may not be there later (along with the quest options the residents would have offered).
