Although I didn’t watch E3 2017, I definitely kept up on the announcements. I’ve compiled a list of the games I’m excited about, for various reasons.
Fallout 4 VR and Skyrim VR
Whaaaaat?! I can be in post apocalyptic Boston and the world of Skyrim? This is basically how I felt when Bethesda announced VR for these two games. Both of these are titles I’ve enjoyed in the past (I’m also currently playing Skyrim). However, as a sole PC owner, I’m not sure if the excitement is justified for me. Sure, it’s cool, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever get my hands on it.
On another note, Bethesda announced Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim, which will act as an idea development platform, working with some external creators. I was very excited to see Bethesda caring about their community, and immediately tried to apply, but unfortunately you need to have your ideas available to pitch on the spot.
Untitled Pokémon RPG
An untitled Pokémon RPG was announced for Nintendo Switch. I’m down with anything Pokémon these days, but I’m unsure if it’s reason enough to invest in a Nintendo Switch. We’ll see what this untitled Pokémon RPG proves to be.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
For me, it’s easy to be excited about any Assassin’s Creed game; however, I’ve never given them the attention they deserve. The Assassin’s Creed series doesn’t run well on my PC, and doesn’t run directly through Steam.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins will take place in ancient Egypt, which is a world I’d like to know more about (I always found ancient Egypt interesting during history class). I can only hope that while you’re tasked with unveiling the origins of the assassin’s brotherhood, you’ll get to explore some tombs and pyramids — and encounter some mummies. Let’s say I’m more interested in the setting than the game.
Far Cry 5
Again with the games I haven’t played. No. I’ve never played a Far Cry game, but this one seems promising. First of all, we’re in America and we’re fighting a religious cult. It’s very bold that a game company has decided to address such a controversial topic, and I’m excited to see how it unfolds.
My favorite part about Anthem is that it’s an RPG game you can play with your friends. You play as a bold group of heroes called Freelancers. You have these incredible Fallout 4-esque suits, and there’s ROBOTS! In the trailer, the heroes are even able to swim in the suits, which makes me question what else they can do!
