VIDEO GAME NEWS: E3 Brief Roundup

Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs,
Ok so you’re probably wondering why we haven’t had an article up currently about E3, well to be honest whilst we weren’t in attendance we were glued to all the feed coming out and have had a lot to sift through as well as some research to do in order to make sure that we bring you all the most up to date news, especially since some of the titles that were expected to make an appearance didn’t.

Titles such as Scalebound and of course Quantum Break which were two that we were really interested in.  Now whilst you may be worried due to this, don’t be, Xbox have issued a statement that said that this year’s E3 was so packed that not every game would get the time during the event that they deserved so they’re saving these two (along with quite a few other new announcements) for the forthcoming Gamescon in August.  We hope to bring you more on what’s happening at that time.

However at this years E3 there have been quite a few titles that we are more than interested in and hopefully will more than keep you as a gamer twitchy on the trigger fingers and eager to play.

Forthcoming expected titles include:
Fable Legends
Star Wars Battlefield
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Assassin Creed: Syndicate
Tom Clancy’s The Division

With new announcements on the following:
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands
For Honor
Dishonoured 2
Fallout 4


Each of them looks pretty good and one that we’re especially looking forward to is the brand new For Honor (Ubisoft)  which allows you and team mates to fight through various battlefields in different times from Knights to Samurais as well as Vikings.  Its pretty novel and whilst I’m not sure on the right stick control for sword play, I l do really like the idea as well as the chance for epic battles where you can face off against so many others.

All round, its been a pretty full show and for me, was something that has left me not only salivating but demanding so much more.  I can’t wait to get my hands on so many of these titles.
