This time of year is like Christmas for many gamers, and Best Buy is here to help deliver your wish list. Check out the IGN live stream of E3 right here!
So far, there have been some pretty amazing titles announced. I plan to fill you in on some of my personal favorites as the event continues. The first game that has been announced that I have been most excited about is Fallout 4. The game was announced several weeks ago, but we just got our first look at actual gameplay and the character creation options. As with previous Bethesda titles, you can fully customize your protagonist in just about every way. Play as a man or a woman of any ethnicity, as well as upgrading your character’s skill sets as you earn XP throughout the post-apocalyptic open world universe. Place your pre-order for Fallout 4 here.
As someone who saw and greatly enjoyed the recent Mad Max: Fury Road- I have been on a little post apocalypse bender as you might say. When I saw that a Mad Max game was in development, I was positively giddy. Not only is this set in the Mad Max universe, it is an open world action brawler. Scavange for parts, upgrade your ride, craft new weapons and armor- all while taking on brutal gangs and savages. Normally I am one to scoff at movie based games, but this title looks to be one of the best looking beat-em ups I have seen in years.
Star Wars Battlefront looks to me like the best Star Wars game yet made- this is coming from someone who has played just about every form of Star Wars game since the early 90's. We have only been given a few examples of the gameplay, but what I have seen is enough to get my pre-order buttons clicking. The idea of being able to fight in some of the most iconic battles of the series in just about every way gives me some goosebumps. There has been a lot of time (and money) that has gone into the development of this game, so I believe the devolopers will do everything they can to make sure this game is a great one.
Well that's all I have for this E3- but make sure you check out the live stream to keep up with all the new info!
