Cool Tidbits From E3 2018
This is by no means a comprehensive recap of E3, just a few things that stood out to me that I’m kind of excited for or curious about. I don’t really follow new games too closely since I’m almost always playing World of Warcraft, but I do like to play other games sometimes. Maybe one of these new ones will tear me away from my druid for a while? On with the show!
1. Kingdom Hearts
The confirmed release date for KH3 is January 25, 2019. It’s been confirmed there will be a Toy Story world, Monsters, Inc. world, a Tangled world, a Big Hero Six world, a Frozen world, and the return of the Hercules world and the Pirates of the Caribbean world. Also, ship battles. There will also be a special edition PlayStation 4 Pro, with a Kingdom Hearts theme, and includes all Kingdom Hearts games with it. It’s mostly black so not really my aesthetic. I already have a white PS4. Still, it’s interesting.
I think Anthem looks kind of interesting. You wear different interchangeable robot suits, which are kind of like classes, and you go on missions. It’s an online RPG. I’m still kind of fuzzy ont eh details but it looks like it has potential. So far it seems kind of like Warframe and Defiance had a baby.
3. Cyberpunk 2077
This doesn’t look like the game I’d ordinarily play, but the trailer made it look pretty cool. It looks somewhat like Ghost in the Shell, if that show took a LOT of acid. The actual story wasn’t revealed at all, but it said there will be specializations, you can have your own apartment, customize your character, and do other stuff that sounds interesting to me, depending on what the story will be. It’s definitely one I’ll keep an eye on.
I’ve played a few Assassin’s Creed games and I enjoy them. I’ve always been a history buff, even as a little kid. Though I’m disappointed it doesn’t appear you can play a female protagonist, I do enjoy ancient history so I’ll probably play the game for that aspect. I see a few historical references in the trailer too. One is an erupting volcano, which may be a reference to the destruction of Pompeii. I also noticed a battle scene reminiscent of the scene in 300 where one of the soldiers kicks someone in the chest (I never actually saw 300, just the trailer, so I’m not sure the character’s name or the context). The graphics also look really nice.
