E3 2014: DualShockers Staff Predictions

by on June 7, 2014 10:30 AM 178

In just a few short days we’ll be in the midst of the video game industry’s biggest and most important event: The Electronic Entertainment Expo. This is the time of year that gamers from around the world wait for because of all of the bombshells and announcements which are made.

This E3 is especially interesting considering that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been in people’s homes for months now. Gamers will look forward to seeing what new titles these systems will have and if any of them can be considered truly “next-gen”. Nintendo shouldn’t be counted out as they will no doubt have to bring the heat in order to compete with the big boys of Microsoft and Sony. In addition, third party developers will also be bringing their A-game to the convention.

So without further delay (pun intended), let’s get into what the DualShockers staff predicts will happen at this year’s E3.

The next generation, having just launched not to long ago, is still in its infancy. With months of dissection from the gaming community, each console — more the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, respectively — has been placed under a glaring microscope in an attempt to evaluate their technical ability to deliver a true next-gen experience.

After their initial announcement of the PS4 during last year’s E3, Sony has been able to maintain a great level of momentum that does not seem to be dissipating any time soon. They launched a next generation console at a price point that startled existing fans and lured in new ones. Without question, Sony went on stage and took back the throne they once held in minutes, promising their focus to be solely on providing the very thing that gamers really care about: games. Excitement ensued and Sony began a campaign that has bolstered their brand and, most importantly, their console.

So how will Sony continue to excite gamers and maintain the drive they have going? They will continue to focus their energy on games. Without a single doubt in my mind, I do think that they will touch on Project Morpheus — their prototype virtual reality (VR) headset aimed to work with the PS4 — but notice how I emphasized the word “prototype.” As it is still in its early stages, I don’t think that Sony will make this show about a device that is still under initial development. Rather, they will bombard the show with a plethora of games and how those games will be accessible in the future. I believe we will definitely see Uncharted 4, maybe a glimpse of what Santa Monica is working on, a snippet of what Guerrilla Games is working on (even though we may have been told otherwise), Kingdom Hearts 3 (yep — I said it), and other titles both from first-party and third-party studios.

But what this show can potentially be about is PlayStation Now — the streaming service based on cloud-based technology that aims to bring games on-demand on both the PS3 and PS4. The system is still in beta, but I have a feeling that they will announce a launch date with the possibility of the service making its way onto the Vita. As this console is “for the gamers,” I can’t see Sony going away from increasing their library of games and how they’re accessed. While I do think that third-party games will make their rounds on their console, the one thing that Sony has always been known for — and has pretty much dominated since their inception — is their exclusivity; and that’s what I think they will focus on in the long-term as it has rained success on them these previous generations.

Now, Microsoft has had a rocky start. The Xbox One, unfortunately, didn’t have the strong start that its predecessor had. While the console did show a profusion of technological achievements in how users interact with it, a lot of people felt that there was a disparity — a disconnect, even — with how Microsoft engaged the gaming community. All of that, however, has changed. With Phil Spencer now at the helm, there has been a dynamic shift that could undoubtedly be felt in the industry and the direction that Microsoft is now steering toward.

Let’s take a look at Kinect. A peripheral thought to be needed by Microsoft’s next-gen system; and a peripheral that is now being offered as an option. What does that tell us? Well, that it isn’t really needed to play games, per se, and that it may have been a farce since its announcement. With the recent omission of the peripheral in new Xbox One SKU’s, it allowed Microsoft to shave off the price of the Xbox One to bring it to the cost-effectiveness of the PS4, now garnishing a more prominent means of competition.

I believe Phil Spencer to be a smart man with the ability to lead the Xbox One to success. I think that being observant and understanding to the needs of gamers, he has been able to, so far, make adjustments to Xbox One’s strategy to ride side-by-side with the PS4 (removing the need to have “Gold” membership to use certain features, price drop, etc.), getting things back on an even playing field. One of the things I think Microsoft is going to focus on this E3 is the one thing they see to be working for Sony — and that’s giving gamers what they want: games and some more insight to the Xbox One’s technical potential, as it has been a fight in persuading certain people of what it can accomplish on the tech front.

Agreeing with Joel, I will say that there may some emphasis on SmartGlass — the companion application for Microsoft’s consoles. With Microsoft having Windows 8 devices, Windows 8 OS, tablets, Xbox 360 and the Xbox One, I have a feeling that there may be plans to create an ecosystem that may potentially allow players to maybe stream games onto these devices and allow them to use their Xbox One controllers to interface/play with these games (the Xbox One controller just recently made its way as a fully supported peripheral on the Windows operating system). They’re on about “the cloud” quite a bit, and the only thing I can think of is providing a more synergistic approach to their devices to diversify the experience. As of now, users are able to manage things like their TVs, view game stats and send messages to friends on Xbox Live. Right now — Sony, Apple, etc — are focusing on establishing an ecosystem that will allow people to experience a cohesive means with how devices harmoniously work together. It is the way the world is moving and the cloud offers this — that is what it’s about. And I can’t see Microsoft falling behind when they are already playing catch-up.

Nintendo… sigh. A company that has some of the best first-party franchises in gaming, yet falls behind due to lack of third-party support. We can expect some news on a new Legend of Zelda, some additional information on Super Smash Bros, X, and Bayonetta. While the lineup for some may look strong and for others grim, there is one thing I think that Nintendo has under their sleeves.

The one thing that Nintendo is known for is dominating the handheld market. Speculation adheres to an unveiling of the 3D’s heir — which is something I can see happening. What it will be, no one knows. But I am sure that hardware of some sort will be unveiled.

As much as people may think that the Wii U is dying a slow death, I think Nintendo will try their best this time to rejuvenate the console. While it doesn’t have the shiny specifications that the PS4 and Xbox One have, the Wii U can definitely still hold its own. And the one thing that is crippling it is the lack of third-party games available for it, something I earnestly hope they tend to mend. Fans and gamers who appreciate the console have been practically begging Nintendo for some sustenance. While we all definitely appreciate and love a new Zelda game and a new [insert Nintendo first-party-title-here] game, it comes down to this: What happens after? Do we continue waiting for a new Nintendo first-party title every year? Or do they make the effort this time to bring out third-party titles to spark interest?

Sony finds themselves in the driver seat for the first time in almost a decade at this years show. Since the house lights came back on at Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena at the end of the PlayStation press conference last year, the company has been on a public relations tear. Executives Shuhei Yoshida, Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios and Mark Cerny, PS4 system architect, have since turned into glorified gaming industry rockstars, keeping the message behind the PlayStation 4 clear and concise: it’s for the gamers.

Since inFAMOUS: Second Son launched — and for quite some time before it did — the PS4 (and Xbox One, since Titanfall, respectively) has been in somewhat of a game release drought. The Order: 1886 has been pushed to 2015. Naughty Dog is playing musical chairs with its creative team, which tells us that Uncharted PS4 still has some time in the oven. And Guerrilla Games has yet to even reveal their (rumored) new IP which has me doubting that it will see the light of day anytime before 2016. So what’s left? Well for this year’s show, I predict Sony will do something that will shock us all: they will (finally) open their wallets.

For the first time — in a long time — the wind is in Sony’s sails. They need to use that momentum to keep that pressure on Microsoft — a company that has never had a problem “making it rain” on third party developers in the past. As much as Sony’s in-house teams bring the goods year in and year out, Sony needs to make it so that a handful of (highly sought after) third party experiences can only happen on PlayStation 4.

With Titanfall, Microsoft proved that the third party exclusive (if you throw enough money at it) is very much alive and well . This year, more than years prior, they will open that war chest. Under Phil Spencer’s new leadership, the Xbox team is fully aware that their focus has to be on games, primarily of the exclusive variety. And while they’ve now been able to match the PS4 on the pricing front, they will likely match it in (gaming related) features as well.

I’m predicting an increased emphasis on Xbox Smartglass, where Microsoft will enable pretty much anything with a screen to perform remote play capability with the Xbox One. With the Xbox One’s ability to apply firmware updates to their controllers, I can see Microsoft adding the functionality and using a “take your controller with you” approach. Perhaps even make it tether through USB to charge it as you play. Hell, they can even say it’s “using the power of the cloud” that they talk so much about.

Finally, I see Nintendo showing proof of concept of what the successor to the 3DS will be. The Wii U isn’t cutting it, and they know that. The handheld arena is where they dominate. With that in mind, like I mentioned in a podcast weeks ago, their next handheld will be a portable that doubles as a console. I’m thinking it comes with a “chromecast-like” HDMI stick that allows players stream to the big screen when they’re home, play as a portable when they’re not. The Wii U currently performs that task, just in reverse through the Gamepad controller. Maybe Nintendo was onto something the whole time, they were just sending it to the wrong screen? Either way, we’re sure to find out on Tuesday morning.

Sony: I think the major focus for Sony will be Project Morpheus, since that’s what Sony has been heavily investing in. If it fails, Sony will lose a lot of money so I expect they will be seriously pushing it, through both their conference and in booths. This would allow the media and general public to try out the headset (much like they did in GDC 2014). The Last of Us for PS4 will most likely be shown at E3, along with Uncharted 4 and The Order: 1886. Honestly I can’t imagine many other games being shown off, other than the two unannounced titles revealed in the Twitch TV broadcast schedule. Sony Bend might be showing something since they have a PS4 title in development.

The next God of War won’t be there, as Santa Monica stated on Twitter they wouldn’t be showing anything, and Guerrilla Games and Media Molecule won’t show anything either this year. And anyone holding out for The Last Guardian will be severely disappointed. Most likely Sony will show off smaller third-party games like what happened last year. Lastly, there’s also the heavily rumored Project Beast that we might see some footage of (or at least some new information).

MicrosoftHalo 5 will of course be extrapolated on, being the flagship series. Project Spark will most likely have a strong presence this year, just as it did last E3. Sunset Overdrive and Forza are also two givens for the press conference. I doubt we’ll get a mention of Gears of War this E3. Titanfall has a good chance of being shown, in terms of DLC at least, but definitely not the sequel. Microsoft supposedly spent no less than $1 Billion in Xbox One titles (according to a quote around this time last year) and according to the Twitch broadcast schedule, there will be about three unannounced titles shown at E3. Quantum Break won’t be talked about since it was confirmed that more info would be released at the upcoming Gamescon in Europe.

Nintendo: Nintendo of course won’t be doing a traditional press conference this year either, but we’ll definitely see and hear more news concerning Bayonetta 2Monolith’s XHyrule Warriors, a new Legend of Zelda title and Super Smash Bros. Here’s something interesting: Atlus is at E3 this year, which never happens normally. Their booth is also right beside Nintendo’s. Personally I think this strongly hints at a huge reveal for Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. It was also announced that Nintendo would show four new titles on the Twitch broadcast schedule. Then there’s about an hour and 30 minutes that will be devoted to a new 3DS game to account for and Nintendo confirmed that they would delve more into NFC type games.

Pokken Fighters and Pokken Tournament were trademarked by both Nintendo America and Nintendo Europe, so hopefully we’ll be getting more information about that. Naturally Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be getting more gameplay trailers. Sonic Boom will definitely be getting more gameplay and information, while Fatal Frame for Wii U has a good chance of being shown.

Super Smash Bros - Mega Man v Mario

As far as gamers are concerned THIS is the most wonderful time of the year. This is the time where every major gaming company under Earth’s atmosphere gathers at the Los Angeles Convention Center to show off their most important upcoming titles. To say that the Electronic Entertainment Expo is a big week for gaming would be a HUGE understatement.

Last year’s E3 was significant because it ushered in the current generation. While Sony and Microsoft had events showcasing their (then) new systems–the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (respectively)–prior to E3, it was at E3 where we really got to see what each system was potentially capable of. Now that the honeymoon is over and both consoles have been out for the greater part of a year, both companies will have to bring the heat big time if they wish to stay competitive–or better yet–defeat their competitors.

When it originally launched, the PlayStation 4′s biggest trump card was its price point of $399. This was THE big announcement at last year’s E3. This is no longer a weapon that they can wield since the Xbox One is also at that price point. To counter this, Sony is going to have to really push their exclusive games hard. I expect the big highlights to be Uncharted 4 and something from Sony Santa Monica (not God of War) and maybe Guerrilla Games. Expect a new IP or two from Sony’s big time AAA studios for sure.

A PS4/Vita bundle was recently listed on Amazon France and I believe that Sony will officially unveil it at their event. Let’s face it, the Vita has been struggling to make it into gamer’s homes so this bundle will be one way of doing just that. I see Sony touting the Vita as more of a peripheral to the PlayStation 4 rather than an autonomous system. We may see a few Vita games but I don’t think anything significant will be on display. Sony will do what it can to make the handheld more palatable to gamers and it will do it by making it a “must have” item to use in conjunction with the PlayStation 4.

While I think Sony will push their exclusive games, they will also dedicate time to Project Morpheus. Personally speaking, I think they’re wasting their time with VR technology but they’ve already invested too much into it and can’t back out of showing it at E3. I predict a few games exclusive to Morpheus that will highlight some of the peripheral’s features. I also see a few established games being shown off using Morpheus. Expect them to officially give this thing a proper name (unless they plan to have Lawrence Fishburne be the spokesperson for it).

Project-Morpheus 2

Microsoft had more of a game heavy presentation than Sony did last year and I see that happening again. They don’t have any VR to show and I seriously doubt the Kinect will get much, if any, stage time so it will be wall to wall games. I definitely see them rebranding the Xbox One as a gaming console and not just a multimedia machine. Phil Spencer has been doing some serious restructuring during his tenure and I really believe that he will keep true to his word when he says that the Xbox One will be a video game console above all else.

What kind of games will be shown during the Xbox event? Expect Halo 5: Guardians to be one of the big ones. I also see them showing off something new for Titanfall since that is THE game for the Xbox One at the moment. We may see a new Gears of War but don’t expect much more than a logo or a short CG trailer. I don’t see MS having too many big AAA exclusive showings so expect a lot of third-party devs on stage. It’ll be one of those deals where they make it seem as if the game is exclusive to Xbox One even though it isn’t.

As far as Nintendo is concerned, I don’t see them doing anything out of the ordinary for whatever it is that they’ll show. They won’t have a proper E3 presentation and will instead do something like a Nintendo Direct. We’ll see some new footage from Smash Bros for the Wii U and maybe get teaser trailers for other things. Donkey Kong? Legend of Zelda? Punch Out HD? Who knows?

Some of the others wrote a bit more than I did about Nintendo but quite frankly, I just don’t know what the hell the company is even thinking anymore. Like I said, I don’t expect much from them other than the usual fan pandering they do each year. At this point, the company doesn’t really seem to care for anyone outside of their core audience so they will cater all of their news to them. It sounds harsh but I’ve all but lost faith in this company.

As for the other big guys, Ubisoft and EA, I see them potentially having the best conferences. Why do I say that? Because they are easily the biggest third party developers outside of Activision (who never have a proper conference for some reason) and they have nothing to show BUT games. These companies have been itching to create next-gen games for the last couple of years and this year I think they’ll pull all of the stops out and show us some amazing things. More than even the Big Three, I think EA and Ubisoft will present us with the most new IPs which have the potential to make us wet our pants like Watch_Dogs did two years ago.

Ah E3.

Like Joel mentioned, Microsoft finds themselves for the first time in a long time playing catch up. Microsoft’s E3 campaign will most likely involve attempting to win over the hearts and minds of the undecided consumers who haven’t made the plunge into next-gen yet. This means almost no talk about the Kinect and we will probably see some exclusive third party goodies. I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft and EA announced a Xbox One exclusive Star Wars game (fingers crossed for KOTOR 3). I bet we will see the Witcher 3 receiving the exclusive DLC treatment in the stage floor along with Call of Duty and Battlefield. Microsoft has to show as many games looking as great as possible in order to gain consumer confidence.

I foresee Sony going hard with Project Morpheus. Chances are we will get an actual name of the headset and a release window of 2015. The idea of a PS4/Vita bundle seems like something that could happen for the holiday. We will definitely see Uncharted 4 and Kingdom Hearts 3. Sony has the momentum so they can afford to take some time to talk about hardware as well as first party and indie games. I think Sony will be tooting their horn and taking slight jabs at Nintendo and Microsoft during the course of the show.

Nintendo will show off Super Smash Bros. with the reveal of a new character along with the announcement of a YouTube affiliate program because Nintendo just realized that people like to stream games on the internet. I think this will be a games over hardware E3 for them. The 3DS and 2DS will get a couple of new colors. We will finally get a Metroid or Legend of Zelda teaser trailer that will would absolutely kill as the finale to their show. My long shot is that they reveal an on-demand subscription service for classic NES/SNES/N64 games because that would make me tweek out.

Once again, the biggest days of the gaming year are set to return triumphantly with E3 2014. For four days, gaming press will gather from high and low to butt heads, go to every possible corner of the Los Angeles Convention Center, and most of all, to uncover and report on some of the biggest gaming-related stories of the entire year. E3, deservedly, is “Christmas for gamers.”

Last year, E3 2013 was all about the introduction of the “next-gen.” We got a big look at the PS4 and Xbox One for the very first time. We got an understanding of what each system was capable of, both in terms of gaming and for other functionality. We got a clearer picture of where each of the Big Three stood in this generation, and more importantly, where they would be headed into the near future.

Fast-forward one year, and the game has changed for all of the platforms significantly. Sony has claimed a pretty heady victory so far into the beginning of the next-gen, and they’re certainly ready to toot their horn and wave their PS-logoed flag. Microsoft, after taking a whipping at least year’s conference, took off to a slightly rocky start, but has stabilized with a solid system, even if it made some pretty big sacrifices in getting there by removing the “required” Kinect 2.0 and cut the system down to $399. Likewise, Nintendo has been on a rollercoaster ride of its own with the struggling Wii U, but being bolstered by the continually strong 3DS/2DS.

For me, E3 2014 is going to be about the larger picture: last year we got our introduction to the new systems and what they could do, and this year’s conference will be about delivering on those initial promises. Given that it has only been a little more than six months since both consoles launched and we have already received big titles like Titanfall and inFAMOUS: Second Son, it puts a good light on what we can expect to come in the remainder of the year, especially when I look on the first year of the Xbox 360/PS3 and the particularly dry debut years both systems had, in terms of releasing quality games exclusive to each system.

call-of-duty-advanced-warfare

There is as much to look forward to in this year’s show as there is to dread: given the large rash of delays that happened in the last few weeks for major titles getting bumped to 2015, we can probably expect a lot of brief teaser trailers and big reveals of titles that won’t come until way down the line. However, with the announcement of several titles prior to E3 (such as Far Cry 4Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, etc.) being a slight departure from the flashy reveals we expect from the show, it also gives a greater chance of actually getting to SEE the games in the flesh, rather than just a quick 30-second trailer that will be on YouTube within hours.

There’s a laundry list of titles that we know will be at E3 this year from every system and every developer imaginable, whether it is returning favorites like Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Far Cry, Super Smash Bros, Uncharted, Halo, or newcomers like Sunset Overdrive, The Order: 1886, and the countless new IPs we will probably see come Monday. As much as Microsoft has its focus on extracurricular media capabilities with Xbox One, or Sony has its new platforms like Project Morpheus and PlayStation Now to coincide with the PlayStation Family, the games always have, and should, be the focus of the show, and though it’s still very early in the generation, I feel like there is plenty to be excited for.

Do I want to see more of some of my most-anticipated titles, like Star Wars: Battlefront, Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS, Sunset Overdrive, and so many others? Absolutely. Do I hope for those incredibly magical (but highly unrealistic) moments that I wish to see, like Nintendo announcing a new 2D Metroid title for 3DS, or Sony’s (gasp) re-introduction of The Last Guardian on PS4? Without a doubt. Am I hoping on Monday that EA will show the world a new Mass Effect title? You bet I am!

Will they happen?

…most likely, no.

Or, at least it’s very, very hard to say at the moment. But that’s exactly what makes E3 exciting, and especially now. We’re coming off a console generation that lasted over eight years and counting. Franchises that kicked off the generation are now well into many numerous installments and sequels, and as much as the previous gen gave us in terms of new tech and new games, there are new consoles with so much more potential. For me, this E3 will be all about tapping into that potential: I’m ready to strap in and see the ride that Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony will (hopefully) take us all on next week.

Uncharted 4 black

Dana Abercrombie – Staff Writer aka Ultimate Badass

It’s that time of the year again where fans are excluded and the press endures hours of kicking and screaming from fellow plane passengers to make the annual trip to E3.

Last year was the press conference that shook the world when Sony and Microsoft played the annual “my balls are bigger than yours.” Even though I was wrong about the ghost of Steve Jobs descending from the heavens laughing his ass off at Microsoft, I’m pretty sure he was laughing in heaven.

While Sony literally dropped the mic, Microsoft gave Pinocchio a run for his money and even though Nintendo had the ability to steal the show they came out swinging with as much effort as someone suffering from clinical depression.

So what will happen this year? I have no clue, my crystal ball isn’t working at the moment but here are my predictions.

Microsoft: Aside from the inevitable delayed games, Microsoft will be partaking in the lovely and humbling meal of eating crow. Now that the Xbone no longer needs the Kinect (the one equipment that made it unique) I’m not expecting anything spectacular from them aside from the games which have already been announced and leaked.

There is Mortal Kombat X (pronounced “Ecks” or “who cares let me just rip off someone’s skull”), Mirror’s Edge 2 and Final Fantasy 100 (seriously I lost count) to tickle our fancy with glorious spectacular graphics filled with glitches.

On the plus side we can expect more exclusives which is the best thing going for the company (Titanfall). Hopefully they will build up their inventory to come somewhat close to Sony’s. We can also expect games for the 360 (yes it’s still very much alive) to be announced but will look so bland it’ll make us want to buy the One.

SONY: Sony can still do no wrong. They need to continue doing what they did last year and cater to their fans. Just bring us the games we want and the games we didn’t think we need.

Nintendo: The Wii U sucks; yeah I said it and so are gamers since Nintendo’s sales are in the toilet. They need to focus on the 3DS which can possibly help save the company and stop making them a laugh-stocking. We will see Super Smash Bros. which brings “happy tears” to my eyes and Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire which will make the Poképeople proud. There will also be plenty of Wii U announcements for games that will make children happy and parents bored.

Sony: We’ve been expecting the release of The Last of Us for PlayStation 4 for a while now although the release date has yet to be released.  A tweet earlier this week from UK retailer GAME suggests that we can expect its release within the same month as E3, so there’s a possibility we’ll get a “by the way it’s out this week” style announcement from Sony.

Microsoft: Phil Spencer’s statement that he wants to boost PC gaming, the revival of the Rise of Nations IP and a recent job ad pertaining to a much loved RTS. It all points to a new Rise of Nations in the works. Some fans have expressed doubts about a dumbed down console version of the RTS (Which never works well), but it could also be a straight up PC title. We’ve also had several rumors floating around pointing to a Halo collection, and with Halo 5 not due for release until next year, there’s definitely still room.

Nintendo: With Mario Kart 8 already out and Smash Bros on the way, Nintendo seems to have brought out two of its biggest guns. However, there’s still room for a new Mario title to be announced, and we also know that Nintendo is looking to release a new game that utilities their upcoming NFC figurine system. A Mario game with Skylanders elements seems more than likely.

I think there will be quite a few nice surprises at E3, despite the fact that the numerous delays have managed to discourage me. I do think this is Microsoft’s time to focus on games, and I think they’ve already made a good start by revealing their new TV apps before E3. I do, however, think they may highlight features such as the optimized-for-TV Twitter. Social networking integrated into a television experience is something they’re obviously excited about.

I think Sony’s main worry right now is competing with the Xbox One’s price drop, which means making their own price drop or offering more for our money. This is where the rumored PS4/Vita comes in, and I think we’ll definitely be hearing about it. Also, I think Sony will touch on PlayStation Now, especially since it should be officially launching this summer.

As far as particular games, everyone’s predicting Uncharted 4 and God of War. I think there’s a chance we could possibly see the return of Syphon Filter as well.

Nintendo probably has the most to prove out of all the other competition. They need to focus on their strong point: The 3DS. I think we’ll see lots of 3DS announcements, including Super Smash Bros. and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. As far as Wii U announcements, I’m hoping desperately for a new major Legend of Zelda game. I’d also love to see a new Star Fox game considering we haven’t seen a major console release since Star Fox: Assault on the GameCube.

As far as other games go, EA has my interest considering they should have some nice content to work with. I want to see more of Dragon Age Inquisition, even if it’s just a short gameplay clip. They also need to reveal more about Star Wars: Battlefront as well as the next Mass Effect. I’m always ready for more Mass Effect!

FFXV

Megan Smith - Staff Writer

To be honest, I didn’t follow E3 very much last year. There were a few games I was excited for, but not enough to garner my complete attention. At this year’s event, I’m happy to say that I’m amped for a lot of already announced games and I have a few sneaking suspicions of my own when it comes to what will surprise the pants off of us.

BioWare’s coming out with the new Dragon Age and Mass Effect, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they are going to also announce an additional new IP or update to an older one they haven’t touched in a few years such as Jade Empire.

While this may just be wishful thinking, I also believe that Square-Enix will surprise us with more than just surprise Kingdom Hearts news as well. While the next new Final Fantasy may be off the table, here’s to hoping they also breathe life back the otherwise abandoned Star Ocean.

Finally, I feel as if Wii U is due for more updates including a new Monster Hunter attempt for the system, another Harvest Moon, Mario Party, and some sort of sports game using the balance board. I’m also expecting to hear about some sort of gamer membership program to keep up with the other two major consoles.

    For once I’m actually anticipating EA’s conference..Would love to see some Battlefront gameplay, and KOTOR 3! And if not KOTOR 3 then maybe a new Star Wars single player RPG. And I would love to see what they have been up to with Mirrors Edge 2. Last but not least a Mass Effect 4 announcement. EDIT: Shit I forgot about Dragon Age! My number one game this year, if it doesn’t get delayed. It’s been a while but EA is actually looking good.

    I would LOVE to finally see a gameplay demo of Witcher 3. It’s my most anticipated game and the last trailer was fuckin awesome. But I think it’s time they showed us uninterrupted gameplay.

  • They Call Me Senpai

    While it’s no secret that I’m looking forward to Sony’s conference, I’m also keeping an eye on Nintendo. I need to see more Bayonetta 2 and X gameplay, as well as some footage of the Hoenn remakes. I’m still not completely sold on SSB for some reason, but that could change and Pokkén Fighters would be a nice surprise.

      If only it wasn’t inaccurate. It mentions GG’s game and Persona 5 and we know neither of those are coming. Also The Last Guardian the big one, we know isn’t coming.

      • Porcu Peth

        we don’t know awnything about the last guardian

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Yah we do if we aren’t blind.

          • Porcu Peth

            no, we don’t.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            We do, but if all this is going to be is a yes-no back and forth let’s drop it here.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            He’s right, we don’t know whether it’ll be there or not.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Except we do.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Maybe in your imagination.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Maybe in yours we don’t. But we do.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            No we don’t.

          • Clifton Walton

            Ok, how do we know?

  • Negi Springfield

    I really want The Last Guardian this E3 from SONY.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Which you won’t get. It is vaporware.

      • Negi Springfield

        We never know…. But i`m keeping my hopes up.

        ” So, we’re waiting for the right time to re-introduce The Last Guardian in an appropriate way. I can’t… Well, the game is in development, and it’s well staffed, and Ueda-san is here, working – even though he’s not a Sony employee, he’s dedicated to the product. But we’re not ready to update yet. ” – Shuhei Yoshida

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Lower your hopes, it isn’t coming. I seem to have a knack for predicting these things.

          • Sucka Free

            And with those 2 sentences, all your credibility flies right out the window….

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            No it increases my credibility. If I am right 99% of the time that means I am right this time.

          • Sucka Free

            Oh, okay…so your a psychic now? Or in possession of more insight into the industry than the professionals? What an arrogant creature you are. Besides, we only have your word on your 99% success rate and as I said before, you have no credibility.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I might very well be a psychic actually. Who are these professionals? I don’t see anybody but other fans like me here. Ok well want proof of my success rate? I predicted no KHIII, I predicted no FFXV, I predicted no P5, I predicted PS Now will have a huge focus, and Morpheus as well. What else did I predict… Type-0 never coming here, as well as obviously TLG not coming to last year or this year’s E3. I also predict there will be Uncharted 4 there. I predict Nintendo will not have new hardware, and will show of their new NFC crap, and possibly touch on their Life initiative whatever it is. I predict the Nintendo Treehouse 3DS hour and a half thing will be about this new mysterious title Mario Maker. Happy now?

          • Sucka Free

            I might very well be a psychic actually = I’m an insecure child looking for attention

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am 19, I guess I could still considered a child to some people. *shrug* As for being insecure, not really. I am just saying I have had things happen to me that would lead me to believing in something akin to esp. Not predicting game stuff, that is simply logic. But I have had odd events happen to me.

          • Sucka Free

            Yeah, typical 19 immature nonsense, wanting to think that you are something special. Trust me, what you are calling psychic is just brief flashes of common sense

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            My psychic-ness is unrelated, I guess that was unclear. I said my predictions are logic.

          • Sucka Free

            sure, faulty logic.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Ok whatever being right most of the time must mean it is faulty logic. Get out of here with that bull.

          • Sucka Free

            I’m allergic to bullsh*t, I’m going to go get some fresh air

            We never usually agree, but in this instance you are spot on. It’s pointless though, you’re fighting an uphill battle against someone who thinks they know everything about anything.

          • Sucka Free

            Had to happen sometime ;D

          • Sucka Free

            really though, what have you ever been right about, where’s your record? You come in here make a quick nonsense prediction with no facts to back you up then say “I’m right all the time so I’m right now”

            nice work Captain Hindsight

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I gave you a list of records, and gave you a couple more predictions. I can’t remember every single little thing I was right about because my memory is not perfect and I have predicted so many things correctly.

          • Sucka Free

            Like I said, Hindsight. That only works if you PREDICT THEM BEFORE THEY HAPPEN

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I have. I predicted KHIII, and FFXV before Square said nope not coming to E3. I am predicting several things that you will see I am right about come next week.

          • Sucka Free

            Here’s the bit that you can’t seem to grasp. I don’t believe you. You have no proof of anything that you are saying.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I don’t have proof but if I am right then I am right, who cares about proof.

          • Sucka Free

            Apparently everyone but you.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I care about proof for leaks and stuff, not predictions.

          • Sucka Free

            Like I said, zero credibility

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I have credibility via being right.

          • Sucka Free

            whatever…you are wrong this time

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I really doubt that, but if I am then so be it.

          • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

            He told me he is right when he gave some of my own predictions “maybes” and “dunnos” listed with his yes and nos. What sense does that make? You see his post of my comment? Ridiculous. This guy is annoying. I am not going to respond to him any further.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Those are simply ones I am not sure of. I have said that I don’t know everything.

          • Sucka Free

            Yeah, I just pushed him to the wall, gave him a way to prove what he’s saying but he keeps refusing.

          • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

            LMAO! I noticed.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Only 4 of those “predictions” have turned out to be true. The PSNow and Morpheus thing are common sense, so I don’t see why you’re acting like you’re the only one who expects it.

            Overall, you got 4/14, which is nowhere near 99% success rate.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            ALl of them will turn out to be true which is a 100% success rate.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Yeah, I highly doubt that. Your success rate will remain low, especially because a few of those “predictions” are just plain common sense that a 3rd grader could have seen coming.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Go ahead and doubt. 99% is low? Ok. I did say my predictions are logic based.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            You’re somewhere around 10%, which is very low and logic based or not, you’re wrong on a majority of your “predictions.”

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            99% is where I am at which is very high, fu#king moron. God people here can be so stupid. And no, no I am not.

          • Jecht_Sin

            No need to resort to name calling, kiddo. That makes you automatically wrong, no matter what. You say you’re right 99% of times? Really? Ok, let’s talk numbers:

            To have a 99% of success rate you need to have made at least 75 predictions. for the rounding. Out of them 74 were spotless. 1 was wrong. Now I’d love to ask:

            - What was the only wrong prediction you made?
            - Are you really sure there were no other wrong predictions?
            - How in hell could you make 75 predictions about E3? Think better about it and you’ll see they were many less.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Sorry, I am just getting angry at this point. People need to learn to accept fact. And no I don’t mean my predictions, though they are likely right and at which point will become fact, but until next week we can’t be sure.

            Where do you get this logic from? By 99% I am simply saying I am accurate most of the time. I have been wrong maybe 2 times.

          • Sucka Free

            you have no proof or a credible track record, I don’t understand why you can’t see why we are calling you out on this. You get mad and call him names because he doesn’t accept that you are always right?

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Don’t need proof if I am right, I do. I am mad because you all won’t shut up and accept fact.

          • Sucka Free

            okay, I’m right 100% of the time and I’m saying that you are wrong….see how that works (or more precisely, doesn’t work)? You can’t come in here and just say, I’m right 99% of the time and expect them to take you seriously based on just your word alone. Be pissed about it if you like, doesn’t change the facts.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            If you are 100% right and I am wrong then cool. And as I keep saying this is strictly gaming based correctness. And I gave you examples of me being right so that should be your precious proof.

          • Sucka Free

            You gave me examples after the fact. If any of your predictions come true concerning E3, minus the no brainers, then you have bragging rights

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            So you don’t believe me being right about the things I said I was right about because I didn’t tell you before you knew it was true? Well that’s a load of bull right there because I made the predictions that have turned out right before they were announced so whatever.

          • Sucka Free

            You’re pathological

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            How so? Please tell me. I am sure it will be amusing.

          • Sucka Free

            It’s not something that should need explaining. But I’m tired of your circular logic. go bother someone else

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            And thus you have no explanation and therefore are wrong, and a huge idiot. Ok.

          • Sucka Free

            Whatever you want to think.

          • Sucka Free

            Wait wait wait, you say that you’ve made these predictions. Here’s a simple way to prove it. Link us to the posts you made that are timestamped BEFORE these predictions came true. Simple enough right? Just need to go back a bit into posting activity

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            That would prove it, but since you are the one who cares so much and I don’t feel the need to bother in doing so you go searching through my thousands of comments for it.

          • Sucka Free

            See? Put up or STFU

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You’re the one who doesn’t believe me. It has happened and I know it and several others know it. If you check my history from a couple weeks back you would know that this is not my home site. My home site is where I posted it and where people who would know that I posted frequent.

          • Sucka Free

            besides, it’s not as complicated as all that, just scroll back past the date in question, then do a word search. I do it all the time

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Except I have thousands of comments brosef.

          • Sucka Free

            what was it that you said to me?:


            “And thus you have no explanation and therefore are wrong, and a huge idiot. Ok.”

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You can search for the proof yourself though, so it is different.

          • Sucka Free

            Burden of proof is on you…but we’re done here. Your refusal says it all.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Hardly. I am the defense in this case. It is always the prosecution that needs to provide evidence. I have predicted it and guess what I was right. You simply wish to not believe me.

          • Sucka Free

            How am I to search for something that isn’t there? I could look forever but that would still not be proof one way or the other. You made a claim, I gave you a way to prove it, you refused. end of story.

            you failed

            a month ago

            That is a really realistic wishlist, I’ll give you that.
            Here’s mine:
            FF15 release window (for JPN at least)
            KH3 trailer (not needed but I’d welcome it)
            Tales of Hearts info (translated gameplay)
            Tales of Xillia 2 (trailers and info)
            Batman AK (more villain revealed to take on)
            Freedom Wars release date
            Tales of Zestiria release date

            Auragar • a month ago

            So much nope on this list dude.

            My nope is to FFXV, KHIII, Zestiria release date. I can’t remember what else but I am iffy on Tales of Hearts R info, and FW release date.

          • Sucka Free

            What were we saying about the No brainers? strike FFXV and KHIII off that list, nobody with half sense was expecting any word about those. they rest we are still waiting. So, you finally grew a pair and posed your predictions. we will revisit this next week

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I gave you a list. On it FFXV, KHIII and P5 are confirmed to not come. The others I cannot give proof to yet because they haven’t happened. You wanted proof I gave it to you so fu#k off. And I KEEP SAYING IT IS BASED OFF OF LOGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God dang man. You really are the biggest idiot ever. At least Jecht isn’t being a moron.

          • Sucka Free

            and I am saying that we will wait and see about the rest. KHIII and FFXV were not predictions, nobody was expecting word about them. I guess you are throwing into P5, but that is the same. I could say that the sun will rise tomorrow, is that a prediction too if it is obvious?

            It’s okay that you you resort to petty name calling, I don’t care what you think of me and it just shows that I’m getting through to you

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Clearly not. But ok. And no that is not a prediction as we have facts to support that.

            I have already said I am simply getting sick and tired of dealing with you.

          • Sucka Free

            We had facts about KHIII and FFXV too, or a lack of them more to the point. And of course you are tired of dealing with me, I make you work for your bullshit

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            No we didn’t. There were no facts saying nope no KHIII or FFXV until just this week. I am tired of dealing with you because you are a massive idiot.

          • Sucka Free

            I disagree with you so I’m an idiot? Stay classy son

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            No you are an idiot because you keep dragging this out when it doesn’t need to be, and I am not your son.

          • Sucka Free

            Last I checked there were 2 people participating in this conversation. Guess that makes you just as much of an idiot as I am.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            In this case, yes, it does. We both should just leave and let be. And then when I am right (or wrong) next week I will accept what it be.

          • Sucka Free

            Maybe if you had just been straitforward from the start instead of all that “Just accept that I’m right all the time” nonsense, you would have saved yourself a lot of effort. I suppose you blame that on me too.
            You have still not proven your so called infallibility, only that you were right on one occasion. out

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am plenty straightforward your idiocy just couldn’t accept it. And I have more than proved it, moron.

          • Sucka Free

            only thing you’ve proven is how childish you can be when someone disagrees with you.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Nope, but ok.

          • Sucka Free

            Here a prediction for you. This time, by next year we will have word and game footage about The Last Guardian

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I severely doubt that, but maybe. I mean TGS is a MUCH more likely place to get info on it than E3 and TGS 2014 happens after E3 2014 but before E3 2015.

          • Sucka Free

            I know when the TGS is, I don’t need you to predict that for me. Doubt all you want, it will happen well before E3 2015. Want to know why I’m so sure, because if they didn’t have something they would be fired by now. Sony has been cutting losses left and right, do you think they would just siphon cash with nothing to show for it? Just because you don’t know about it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I ain’t predicting when the show is you moron. It won’t happen more than likely.

          • Sucka Free

            Okay then I guess Sony just likes Team Ico so much that they are willing to shell out cash indefinitely. I suppose that makes sense to you somehow?

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Who knows what game companies think. They clearly don’t know how to do things right. *looks at Square, Capcom, Sega, etc.*

          • Sucka Free

            I’m not seeing a link

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You want a link too? This way is fine and doesn’t disclose the identity of who I was talking to.

          • Sucka Free

            this way is out of context and is subject to editing and really, it was posted in a public forum, who are you really trying to protect?

            anyway, whatever. I don’t care if your are right or wrong.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Not edited you just don’t want to accept the truth because you are blinded by your idiocy. My friends.

            Seems you do.

          • Sucka Free

            god I wonder if I was ever that stupid at 19?

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am not being stupid, but you are being a complete moron at whatever age your dumbass is at now.

          • Sucka Free

            You know, very few “morons” have basic communication skills like grammar, spelling, typing, etc. In fact, you probably have never even spoken to a true moron.

            But what you just said is basically the equivalent of “I know you are but what am I?”

          • Jecht_Sin

            The point I am making is that anyone claiming to be right 99% of times is dumb. It simply doesn’t work like that.

            Congratulations on guessing SE won’t show FF XV nor KH3 at E3 if that is true. But the one about The Last Guardian is an easy shot (which still must be verified, though), as to say that Naughty Dog will show something about Uncharted 4 There will be a riot if such isn’t the case, it doesn’t take a crystal ball to predict that. ND may just show a trailer, like MS did with halo 5 last year, but sure there will show something.

            Still to prove that you have such exceptional skills you must write down the list with all your predictions, post it here and then after E3 we’ll see how many were correct. Yes, I am challenging you. :p

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Except I am extremely intelligent, and I am right 99% of the time.

            They have said they won’t, so thank you. “Easy shot”? Meh riots or not who cares. Yes it will be just a trailer more than likely.

            Well I gave you most of my predictions already. I suppose I need to do some for Microsoft, but honestly I don’t like Microsoft.

          • Jecht_Sin

            It’s an easy shot to say that Sony won’t show The Last Guardian at E3. Ask any Xbot, they all make the same prediction. If you ask the Sony fans we say we hope there will be, but we are as well afraid Sony won’t show anything.

            Then if those are all you predictions they are not more than a dozen. 1 wrong makes you 92% right, two wrongs make you 83% right. Which is far from 99%. Also consider that keeping throwing a coin one gets on average 50% right and see how you have to reconsider your infallibility.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Trust that I am not an Xbot. If anything I am a fanboy of Sony or Nintendo (particularly them) but I don’t consider myself a fanboy at all. I simply take a look at things realistically.

            Like I said most of the time. 99% is simply a way to represent that.

          • Jecht_Sin

            I am not saying that you are an Xbot. I am saying that to predict that Sony won’t show TLG at E3 is an easy shot. The odds Sony will show it are low, since there have been no rumors in the last few weeks.

            The lack of FF XV and KH3 have been much more surprising. One wonders if SE wants to keep making money or what. Still it is up to you to show that you predicted it. Even more because your posting history is locked. And it isn’t up to others to prove your reputation. It’s your. Do with it what you care.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Ah I see. Well makes sense.

            Eh Square is full of people who don’t know what they are doing. No it isn’t. Is it? Well for good reason, there are some very malicious pieces of trash that I have bad blood with. Whatever. I am the defendant here, I know I am right and I know I said it. Others do as well. You all just don’t believe me. And besides I posted proof of it even though I didn’t have to.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            You mean we need to accept your opinion, which is likely extremely wrong?

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            My prediction based on logic, which is likely to be completely accurate? Yes.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Someone’s a little upset that their success rate is extremely low. Face it, you’re barely pushing 10%.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You seem to be upset that I am right and you won’t get your precious TLG.

          • Sucka Free

            It’s a pointless conversation, trust me. There’s no breaking through the layers of delusion, 10 exchanges later and you will find yourself right where you started….

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Yeah, I’m starting to see that. It’s last 2 weeks ago all over again, when that chrisredfield guy couldn’t understand that he was baiting.

          • Jecht_Sin

            No, it doesn’t. Any man claiming he is right all the time is a clown. Unless you’re a woman, sure. Because we all know women are always right… It’s one of the basic laws of Universe. :p

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am referring only to gaming. And it helps that I always am right.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Sorry.. All I see is a good dose of juvenile arrogance.. But hey! You’re 19. It’s allowed!

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            It might be arrogance, but when it is the truth who cares.

          • Jecht_Sin

            yes. And your name is Jesus. In truth I Say! lol

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Nope, good try though.

          • Sucka Free

            Allowed? Not so much, but it’s expected

          • Jecht_Sin

            Could you please enlighten us on your previous predictions? For example.. what have been your predictions about Duke Nukem Forever and L.A. Noire? :p

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Too many to tell you really and my memory is shoddy. Didn’t pay attention to either of those.

          • Jecht_Sin

            I’ve read some later. They are about E3 though, not vaporware generally speaking. Sorry, but although I can agree with some of them, for the simple reason that they are quite obvious (and still they may be wrong), you can’t say you’re right until the E3 conference has been done.

            Still i am bit intrigued about FF XV and KH3. What did you exactly “predict” about them at E3?

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I make various predictions and this was about TLG not coming to E3. I did say they were based on logic, and they will all be right. Trust me.

            That they weren’t coming.

      • Porcu Peth

        it’s not vaporware.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Yes it is. You do know what vaporware is? Something that hasn’t had any significant or solid news/proof it is still real and being worked on.

          • Porcu Peth

            there’s been several signs. it’s coming.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            There has been no signs. It isn’t coming.

          • Porcu Peth

            we’ll talk next week.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Indeed, and if I am wrong which is unlikely I will happily eat shoe or whatever the phrase is.

          • Sucka Free

            I would rather you deleted your Disqus account

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            That won’t be happening.

          • Sucka Free

            Another prediction? LMAO, I could have made that one

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            That one is fact.

          • James

            I don’t think you realise this but after reading your comments… You come off as a naive, arrogant, entitled know-it-all (who doesn’t know squat).

            You can’t just go around telling everyone you’re always right (Well, 99% right) then get annoyed when people call you out on it.

            Honestly, it’s quite shocking how truly delusional you are.

            And some of your predictions – like they’re going to show U4 at E3 – is so obvious… Anyone who reads up on gaming could of seen that coming a mile of.

          • GameDev345

            Didn’t know you were an insider?

            Maybe you should be confirming more game news for us

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am not, nor do I claim to be, I am just accurate most of the time. What would you like me to confirm, if I have any ideas about what you ask then I will tell you.

          • GameDev345

            Naughty Dogs sci fi game, hows that coming along??

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            The one they only just announced? Considering that it was literally only just announced it is not very far along, and if you want to know if it is coming to E3, unlikely.

          • GameDev345

            Err no, the only game they announced is UC4 and it is at E3, they never actually announced a sci fi game, but people assume they are making one because of Savage Starlight, a comic strip by them

            Ok, leak screenshots for Halo 5 then

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            They’ve mentioned a sci-fi game nonetheless. That is not disputable, I do not remember where I read it though.

            Leak screenshots? I cannot leak something I don’t have. I just predict things.

          • GameDev345

            Media Molecule’s new IP, when is that coming??

            No they never mentioned a sci fi game, people speculated it but it is not even close to confirmed

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You’re right they didn’t say what kind of game it is. But they have a second game in the makes. Sorry.

            When? If I had to guess either Gamescom 2014 or E3 2015.

          • GameDev345

            Ill give you that, as it is likely Gamescom as they tweeted they will be showing it later this year

            GTAV remaster for PS4 and Xbox One??

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I don’t keep up with GTAV and have no interest in it. So… you got me.

          • GameDev345

            lol, finally eh

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I don’t know everything, and I only predict things I care about, and keep up with, because as I said my predictions are logic based, I take news and info surrounding the games and situations and come up with my prediction.

          • GameDev345

            Which is basically what an insider does, but they are not right everytime

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            An insider typically has information somebody like me or I am assuming you don’t have.

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQNHs-Wpr24PIsKl5CV8Xtw Vulcan Spectre

            It must be amazing to be you, knowing everything that goes on behind the scenes. When we hear something about it I would actually pay to see your face. It would be a picture.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I already said I don’t know everything. Hear something about what? TLG? My face will be impassive like always. I will be happy internally though. I don’t mind being wrong.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Hmm.. Not exactly:

            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vaporware

            Definition of VAPORWARE

            : a computer-related product that has been widely advertised but has not and may never become available

            Please notice the “may”. Vaporware may still see the light, which contradicts your “which you won’t get”.

            And in any case according to your definition it wouldn’t be vaporware either, for the simple reason that Sony’s keeps stating that the game is under development.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Maybe my definition isn’t completely accurate but whatever. The point is the same. Somebody can say anything. That isn’t solid news. Solid news is a trailer, release date, demo, the actual game, pictures.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Well, the fact that you think you’re right doesn’t make you so. Until the Last Guardian gets and official release or cancelation it is still on hold. My money is on it seeing the light.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I am not saying it is cancelled, but it definitely isn’t coming anytime soon, nor will it be at E3.

          • James

            You mean you’re wrong? I thought you was never wrong lol.

            You’ll have to factor that in your 99% success rate.

          • Sucka Free

            That must be pretty embarrassing for him, need to wipe that crud off of his crystal ball

      • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

        It is coming regardless if its not this E3. They said its still in development. They said its not cancelled.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Ok. But he said E3.

  • Cassive

    Uncharted 4

  • Al_Zamora

    Fixed, sorry about that.

  • Porcu Peth

    “I predict Sony will do something that will shock us all: they will (finally) open their wallets.”

    i hope not. I hate third party exclusives. waste of money by the company. most of the games end up releasing on another platform so it’s just a fake exclusive. My PC says high to Titanfall and Dead rising 3.
    i want Sony to open their wallet to indie developers like they are doing now, because those actually need the mone. and to first party studios
    third party just release multiplats and that’s it.

  • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

    I think we will see The Last Guardian, next proper Zelda, the new Mass Effect title, something from Star Wars: Battlefront, Crackdown 3, and possibly Persona 5. I also think Project Beast is real and will be shown. I think we will see Quantum Dream’s new IP since there hasn’t been any talk about them not showing like Media Molecule pointing out they won’t show and that Guerilla Games is unsure. I believe we will see Shigeru Miyamoto’s new IP. It is a must for Nintendo to show it and Zelda.

    I am so stoked for E3! It is one of my favorite times of the year! Monday is almost here. It sucks working on that day but happy I will at least be able to watch Sony’s Conference.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope, maybe, maybe/dunno, yes, dunno, nope. Possibly. Possibly. Possibly. I agree.

      • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

        I hate comments like yours. Its like your trying to dispute what i have to say by being frank when you yourself don’t know.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Except I do know.

          • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

            I am not going to get in a spat with you as you have with others with your bullshit logic so take your ego and shove it somewhere else. Nobody likes a person who is conceited. Nobody!

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            It isn’t bull when it is correct. And I never said I needed to be liked.

  • Vious

    for me E3 = xbox. everything else? not important.

  • Vious

    well it should be a great E3 for a lot of people; some for xbox, some for sony and others for Nintendo, while for a few all 3.
    happy E3 guys, hope it doesn’t turn out to be all hype

  • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

    I’ll be going in on Dragon Age, Evolve, Guilty Gear Xrd, Destiny, DriveClub, Smash Bro’s and the Evil Within this year. Actually was looking forward to some Dying Light with my peep’s this Summer but that’s not happening unfortunately.

  • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

    What I would like to see at E3… is a number of things, first Konami’s MGS:The Phantom Pain gameplay/trailer presentation, more emphasis on KH3 since SQE is showing off KH2HD instead of FF15. I’m having a pretty bold assumption for R* announcing something at E3 I’m hoping it’s GTA5 DLC involving CJ(Young Malay) and Franklin(Solo) also with PS4/XB1 ports. Lastly a presentation on whats to come explaining system updates in months to follow for both XB1/PS4 Console UI interface, apps,services and accessories.
