What Was Missing During E3 2014?


E3
It was clear that this year’s E3 was all about the games. With consoles out on market, it was time that we see just what is coming out in the next few months to a year. While this year developers showed off some amazing video game titles, we were a bit bummed in a few things. Find out what some of the PSG thought should have been announced this year.

A few of us here at PlayStation Gang decided to chat about what we liked about E3 and what we wished was announced.

This year’s E3 was great and I was glad to see that the focus was strongly about the games coming up. Though my favorite reveal would have to be Mirrors Edge 2. Seeing Faith free running at incredible speeds and her combat. Developers put it wonderfully, Faith is like a living projectile, shes fast, hit hard and keep going. That is the game I’m most excited to play!

Now I would have loved for more information with Star Wars: Battlefront but it seems that the development is far too early. Also, I’m a huge fan of the Red Dead series and while I was expecting rock star to announce the next Red Dead game after Red Dead Redemption, it would have been a nice and welcomed surprise.

This year’s E3 was okay. For me personally I felt like this year E3 was all about  games. Moreover  every company had a great press conference. Sony on the other hand, its good to know 2015 will the year all gamers will look forward in, considering they have more than 3 phenomenal exclusive coming out. You got Ubisoft showing their next gen AC, The Division, and more. I was very Impressed by their press conference. EA not so great, i woild have to give them a B for their conference. Overall this year E3 was well done by every company.
The Division

You got to give it up Uncharted 4. I couldn’t believe what I was seing. The graphics! It has to truly be a next gen game. I feel like Naughty Dog is 2 years ahead of all the other developers. Very Impressed by The Division, I’m also looking forward in trying it out. Same for The order: 1886, Bloodline and AC.

I wish Sony could have revealed the PS4 world wide sale. I guess they are not in a rush, considering that their competition didn’t reveal sales either. One thing I really wish they revealed was a PS4 and PS Vita bundled.  I guess they are saving this for either Gamescom or TGS.

This year’s E3 was great. Mainly because this year was all about the games, unlike last year which showed the next-gen consoles but hardly any games. Meaning that you can finally dust off your ps4 and xbox one and play games. Best part of E3 had to be Nintendo’s press conference. No Man’s Sky looked beautiful and it seems interesting, I just can’t wait for it to be out.

Ori and the Blind Forest looked simply amazing and might be one of the main reasons I buy an Xbox One but props for the other video game titles such as Project Spark, Bloodborne, Mortal Kombat X, Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros. I would have liked to seen more gameplay this year. Seems like most of the trailers were only CGI.

E3 always delivers and Sony stole the show which is a massive bonus. Best part has to be YouTube coming to PS4 as it shows companies building on their mistakes and listening to feedback. Though I would have enjoyed Naughty Dog bringing out a Crash Bandicoot reboot for free!
