E3 Review Part 1 – EA Games

e3-logoid-07-eagames

Finally! I have only been talking about it for a while…. Okay, well, maybe on here I have only mentioned it twice, but on my twitter and other social places that I go I have been talking and nerding out about it.

I won’t go too in-depth about all that is going on. I am just going to show what interest me the most: The Games. They do talk hardware and other things, but the only thing I care about is what is new in regards to games. I know that some of this isn’t new games but DLCs and additions, but I know there are people who are still excited about it. Let’s get started, shall we?

(Warning: Trailor HEAVY because I will be showing links/putting the videos here.)

Battlefield 1:

EA02Battlefield

Usually I am not for shooters, but this game is supposed to take place World War 1! Definitely something that has NOT been touched much in games. A setting we have all heard of and just catches my interest – to say the least. From what I hear, they are going back to what “Makes the series great” (quote the husband) and that is exciting. Maybe they listen to their gamers…

Trailor:

I mean… seriously… tanks AND horses… I may have to work on my aim for this one.

Madden 17:

Let me start by saying this – I am NOT a sports game fan. I just am not. And EA is a big “Sports Games” thing so half the time I don’t pay attention. With that said, this is the ONLY shot that really caught my interest:

Because…. I am a Panthers fan. That is all. I cannot – I am not sure about the mechanics, what all they are bringing to the game. BUT if you want opinions and deeper information about this, let me know, and I can ask the husband and figure out what information may be interesting for those who actually like it.

That being said:

Don’t get me wrong. It looks great. Just not for me. And of course –

FIFA 17:

Now here is something neat: They are adding a new factor/feature for the FIFA Storyline type of deal. It actually sounds cool – but it is still a soccer/sports game to me. But according to IGN:

the campaign follows an up-and-coming fictional soccer player named Alex Hunter. Players will make decisions about his personal life and will watch his fortunes rise or fall depending on how players manage to perform on the pitch.

IGN

Neat right?

EA04JourneyFIFA

That’s him. Instead of the normal Trailer, I am going to post “The Journey” Trailer, because it appeals to me more. ;P

Star Wars:

Bunch of stuff about Star Wars… Like a confirmed Battlefront 2! Now, I haven’t had a chance to tear into Battlefront yet, but I promise – I will. The brief I have played was kind of awesome (Being Darth Vader was a plus!) and so I am excited about this. Some people were disappointed about it, but hey, can’t please everyone, right?

EA05StarWars.JPG

Not really a trailer. Just giving us info and an inside look at this. But you know that isn’t all bad. ;D

Titanfall 2:

You have NO IDEA how pumped up my husband when he saw this. He likes this series and has been stoked about it for a while.

EA06Titianfall

I was actually a little excited about the gameplay I was seeing. Again, because I am a poor shot, I tend to ignore these games, but they are starting to appeal to me more. I may just have to suck it up and try them. Because… well…. Hey, you get to play with other people and play in groups. As much as I love my games, they aren’t the easiest to do multiplayer with sometimes.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

THERE WE GO! Y’all should know by know that I am a HUGE BIOWARE fan. So – this –

EA07MassEffect

YES! I squeed. I was so excited. And they showed some of the back stuff before the little teaser trailer. And you can see how they worked on it and whatnot- Count me an excited fangirl. Thanks.

Fe

Not going to lie. I was like… what? What is this? It looks interesting. From what I have figured out, it has an interesting concept.

 

EA08Fe

Consider me intrigued. Not sure if I’ll buy it though… I might. Who knows. With all the games I want… >.<

 

I think that was it! For at least EA. Now, I listed the games as I saw them in the video that I will list below. My mentions are in the order that are talked about in the “Pre” talk type of deal. But it is fun to watch the whole thing. I think the last hour is about Battlefield 1 and streaming gameplay. Which if you want to see what is like, GO FOR IT!

All my info was essentially from the video and the trailers I looked up on YouTube. Also check out GameSpot’s E3 Expo Takeover for a lot of information as well.

See y’all soon with the next batch of information: Bethesda.

What I was MOST Excited about (E3!)

If you have been reading certain entries, you might know EXACTLY what I am going to be referring to…..

But just in case you haven’t seen it (and my Facebook was FULL of it and I was so happy):

YES! Oh my goodness yes! Zelda is my all-time favorite series in the world and I will ALWAYS always always freak out about it. And yes. Full of yes. So you guys will be hearing (more like READING) me talk about this.

Next post will be about all things E3 though! I promise!
(PS: if you want to see the beginning of Gameplay, scroll to bottom!)

Anyways, yes,…. this is a lot of the pictures from the Trailer. Sorry. I had to. I had so many commentssssssss… let’s get started!

Zelda01

As soon as I saw that first scene – I KNEW I just knew. I started freaking out and even later when my husband called me over because he hadn’t seen it yet, I STILL freaked out.

These scenes reminded me of other games. The one on the right reminded me of Great Bay/Zora Cape. That was my first thought. So I wondered what kind of things would be going on there.

Zelda04

My mind was like “What IS that?” It looks skeleton-like… but it is MUCH bigger than the normal bone baddies. I… am super excited.

Zelda05

Oh… Hyrule Castle… my how the landscape changes over time. (And yes, I wondered where in Hyrule Timeline this takes place.)

Oh, cool thing, I wonder -OH! Bum bum BUUUUUM!

He still flies! And now we apparently tame wild horses?

That bridge looks a lot like the one from Twilight Princess… wait a second… he’s climbing the tower? I had a flashback to Assassin’s Creed for a moment. But yup, that is definitely Link! They showed him climbing mountains/rocks as well.

And now he cuts trees and cooks food! You have NO IDEA how excited this made me! I don’t know why, but especially the COOKING aspect just made me all sorts of excited.

Zelda15

What in the world is THAT. I bet it is very important….

NEW GADGETS! OMG!! AND THEY DO COOL THINGS!

And what is this?

Zelda21

Yup. More bum bum bum moments. …. Ganondorf? Any chance you are tied to this still?

Is-is that a SPEAR? And actual spear… WAIT! Is that ARMOR? Like actual Knight style Armor? Holy Macaroni and Cheese!

Throw back anyone?

Zelda26

And with a Zelda Game, you never fail with this classic set-up shot of the legendary sword.

Zelda27

You guys, I am so excited. Seriously….

Sorrry, I originally said more for each shot, but I am running out of time…. But as promised: GAMEPLAY

 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered!

E3 News y’all!

Now, I cannot remember if I have mentioned here about my interest in Skyrim. I have tried it before but couldn’t get into it, but I think it was because I was trying to play a LOT of games at one time.

And after my PS3 died, I thought I had lost all hope. And then THIS HAPPENS:

SkyrimTitle

COMING TO PS$ (and xBox One and PC). They are doing a REMASTER so we can play! This was announced #BE3! (Bethesda E3 announcement.)

Thanks to Gamespot I was able to get all of these pictures and information. Note: I haven’t taken a screen shot of ALL the shots shown, but I did just about most. Here for your viewing pleasure (Click on the pictures for SLIGHTLY bigger versions!):

PS3 vs PS4

xBox360 vs xBox One

Other Cool Features:

You read that right… MODS ON CONSOLES. Holy cow!

Plus additional fun news for those who may already have it for PC:

SkyrimTweet

Where did I get all of this info and updates? Check out that link above to GameSpot. Also the E3 Expo/E3 Insider.

Opinions? Thoughts? Just all out comments and celebrations? Let me know! I know I am stoked because I just really wanted to give this game another shot and this is the PERFECT opportunity.

 

Finally Playing UNTIL DAWN!

Don’t know if y’all have heard, but I have been DYING to try:

until-dawn-review

SERIOUSLY. I HAVE IT! And my husband is watching me play it. Let me tell you:

db-word-cloud

That isn’t explaining it? Okay…. let me break this craziness down.

Until Dawn plays like a Horror Game: The creepy music at the right times. The semi-sterotypical characters. The creeper guy that appears at random moments. The times where things pop up to scare the bee-jeebers out of you (You have NO IDEA how many times I have yelled SCREW YOU at the TV because it just scared me and made me jump: much to my husband’s delight). But best part of all…

How wonderfully fantastic it was all done.

For those who haven’t heard about it, let me tell you.
You are playing one year after the Washington sisters have gone “Missing” (You know the truth because of the beginning of the game). Their brother Josh has invited the gang back to their ‘Winter Retreat’ supposedly in the memory of his sisters. (“Party like porn stars”? Really?) This game is all about decisions and the characters and their interactions. Do you jump ahead and do the faster route or do you go down the safer route?

Amazing. And the ‘acting’ is fantastic. Seriously, fantastic casting.

(When I get a better picture, I will post that. For now this will have to work.)

Well done guys. Well done. You have made a fan of me, and I am DEFINITELY saying that it was worth the wait/worth buying!
