But I just wanted to mention a little plus this little reminder might keep the hype up plus it's a good thing to come back onto AsperJosh after having a good long break since finishing the Tough Mudder Midlands, 2015. Plus I had a real good Saturday last weekend with 2 parties in the same day which I'll mention in my next post.
Work has taken over this month which is why I haven't been motivated and tight on thinking up posts or what to write up next on here, I'm struggling a little as some new rules have been added last week and affected me and my team mates enthusiasm, thankfully E3 last week and this Saturday have helped bring the mood elevator back to the top floor for myself and some others plus it's something to talk about whilst I'm thinking up more things to write up. I know I'm way behind on my The Duff Film Review but I reckon that one will get published when it's released on DVD/ Blu-Ray plus it'll be a good advertisement/ recommendation method. I am interested in writing up The Fault In Our Stars plus sometime actually get round to talking about some topics/ theories that flow in my head and relate to my conditions since those stories help myself and possibly some of you plus they help bring in the attention.
Anyway, here I'm gonna mention a good amount of my most wanted but leave the video links up for you all to enjoy yourselves in your own time instead of writing it all up and delay this post even more. Full list of games, see here.
I actually discovered and became interested on watching E3 last year in June through the Live-Stream (sounds like I said "Lifestream" from Final Fantasy VII) via either my Xbox or on YouTube. It's quite sensational to feel honoured and proud to be a geek/ nerd or just another gamer who's curious as hell and overjoyed to watch a live video that's airing in the states and showing thousands of thousands of fans a good teaser and announcement of upcoming video games for us all to AWE over along with some possible gameplay whilst it's in development.
Last year, I caught a few presentations for Xbox and Nintendo (I do respect PlayStation compared to some of my Xbox loving gamer friends because it was my childhood but I have more friends on Xbox than PlayStation, however I am jealous of some special PlayStation 3/ 4 games and the perks but maybe someday I may even purchase a PS4 but then I'll have no life at all haha... we'll see). I didn't have time to actually watch anything but I was made aware through Facebook Messages of my friends watching the live-stream till late into the night and heard about FarCry 4, Battlefield: Hardline, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX + Kingdom Hearts III, Destiny, Mirror's Edge 2 plus Stars Wars: Battlefront and Pokemon Omega Ruby + Alpha Sapphire etc. Soon after, I saw a few videos on YouTube and got a good taster of some incredible games that I actually own a couple already to this date and am still in the middle of playing.
But this year, I couldn't be super dedicated because work was priority but I did watch several long videos including a lot of Bethesda's video which showed for me the surprising and hellish DOOM and the long awaited Fallout 4. I watched those videos with eyes hooked on my laptop and seeing how these 2 have come a long way and that Fallout 4 had so much to offer including playing the game before the Fallout, the improved gameplay, the dynamite pixels which make the graphics look more realistic than ever plus some more special additions to this game which make the previous game look too easy. Plus what made my mouth drop in surprise was the special Pip-Boy Edition which comes with the following:
Yep, the long awaited Mirror's Edge 2 is finally happening and surprisingly, it's a prequel called Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. I'm definitely writing up a review of the first game this year because I'm sure that you too will be amazed after watching this video and the first game is just as good as this, no kidding!
2 years ago (meaning in E3 2013), the Star Wars fans were rewarded with astonishing footage of a 10 year long awaited sequel to one of the best Star Wars games ever! Battlefront!
After that I gave up and decided to watch on YouTube all of Bethesda and just watch other bits and pieces or hear them from my friends, as I said "work was more important".
I'm gonna admit honestly that I do respect and enjoy PlayStation because it was my childhood along with the Nintendo 64. I'm not the kind of gamer who just fan-boys Xbox and despises PlayStation like it's a spider. I am jealous though of PlayStation's games that I'll maybe never get to play like The Last of Us, Uncharted, Journey or the new upcoming games No Man's Sky and this... Final Fantasy VII (Remake).
I'm also going to admit that I HAVE NEVER played any of the Final Fantasy games. This statement may shock and offend some of you but I've just never had access to any of them or bothered to purchase them compared to my huge fascination and up-to-date knowledge and gameplay of the Kingdom Hearts series. I do however know everything about VII and it's other games thanks to long talks with friends and I have seen the film sequel to the PlayStation 1 classic, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children which was incredible and amazing to watch on Blu-Ray along with hearing another epic version to One Winged Angel. I have admittedly played a small amount of X but gave up when I was 12 because I found it hard after defeating Sin's fin for the first time (I need to get round to playing it again despite knowing the plot and it's sequel).
My last game to talk about it one dear to my heart (theoretically) and has been my most adored gaming series rivalling Pokemon with how much I know, I give you the long waited Kingdom Hearts III.
I have now played every game through many different consoles and hand-held consoles over the 6 years following and thanks to E3 2013, I was graced with a long delayed trailer of the game that will end it all and complete another gaming series that many of my friends and I adore.
I won't say anything because I want to write up the games in the future and explain more then but not too much. Even though these videos may be clueless to some of you, I'm sure that maybe some of you have a gaming series very dear to your heart where you must know it all back to front, right?!
I may trade in my Wii (I won't get much obviously) and get one of these but it depends on what games come out to make it more worth my while. But I know what Nintendo unveiled at E3 this year and it's not exactly special in my opinion, but don't let me spoil or ruin your enjoyment out of Nintendo.
So there you have it, a late post about my highlights for this year's E3. What was yours?
Like I said at the top, I have a few things planned to write up soon but first I have some things to celebrate such as having a double weekend of parties (which I'll write up asap), plus my little ones Dash and Stache turn 1 years old on the 30th June and my little sister Rebecca will be 18 on July 1st. *sigh* they grow up so fast... where does the time fly?!
