E3 Predictions

E3 is just around and websites have been putting out somewhat accurate E3 predictions. So I decided to put together a list of possibly far-fetched predictions. For accurate predictions you can visit gaming sites like ign.com, gamespy or gamespot.

- A playable demo or gameplay video for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (out 2012 for 360, PS3, PC) will probably be shown. 

- A new Lego game trailer? What series will they do next? Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future? Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments. 

- Will Activision shock us all and bring back Guitar Hero to rival Rocksmith? Slash is expected to show off Rocksmith at Microsoft's press conference.

- Now for a more precise prediction... The next game in the Call of Duty Franchise has been announced for 8 November. We can probably expect a gameplay trailer or extended campaign trailer. 

- Even though they got delayed I think we will still see something from Mass Effect 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Solder. I can also confirm that there will be a Free to Play Ghost Recon game coming to PC. It will include micro transactions similar to that of Battlefield: Play4Free.

- Duke Nukem will be released during or just after E3 (depending on where you live). We can probably expect a full playable demo or DLC announced. 

- FIFA 12, Maddden 12 and/or NBA 2K12 features might be announced or we might see trailers for them. This is highly unlikely though. 

- This is a long shot but maybe Nintendo will announce some 3rd party games for their current and upcoming consoles. 

- DLC for several games might be announced. 

- More details, trailers and gameplay from Saints Row 3. Be prepared for more crazy weapons. 

- Final Fantasy XIII-2 gameplay or another trailer showing more info on the game. The release for Europe, Australia and the US will be early 2012 while in Japan it will be released in late 2011. Maybe Square Enix will announce a new title or even Final Fantasy XV.

That's all for my E3 predictions. Remember to head to your favourite gaming website to get the E3 press conferences live. 

Assassins Creed: Revelations teaser trailer. As seen on: http://au.ign.com/videos/2011/05/26/assassins-creed-revelations-teaser?objectid=76574



Also make sure you check out my channel on Youtube, I'll be putting up some Terraria gameplay videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/BlazeFury000?feature=mhee

Next Week I'll probably have my Terraria review finished. 

Happy Gaming. Remember, E3 is 7-10 June in America.

Quick Update 24-5-11

Over the next couple of weeks a few articles will be posted. I am currently writing a Terraria review and compiling my list of far shot E3 predictions. You can expect more stuff on MW3 over the next few weeks. And then a rap up of stuff from E3.

On to other news. Modern Warfare 3 has been officially announced and there is now a reveal trailer up on http://www.callofduty.com/mw3. There is no mention of RavenSoft doing anything with the game. So we can assume the multiplayer is to be done by either InfinityWard or Sledgehammer Games. MW3 will be released on 8th November this year. I haven't played any of the MW campaign but it seems that the game will be set in several different countries including America, England, France and Germany. Be sure to check the gaming website you use to get more info on the game as it emerges. The game hasn't been rated and it is unsure what consoles the game will come out on but you can expect X-box 360, PS3, pc and probably Wii are all set in stone.

On other news I have a Youtube channel now. I will be putting up some Terraria videos and maybe some other stuff. The channel is BlazeFury000. Make sure you subscribe.

That's all for today. Happy Gaming.

E3 Predictions coming

My E3 predictions won't be put up today. I had a hard week and didn't have much time to do them. You can obviously expect them before E3.

Games to look out for:
Sanctum was released last week( I think) on Steam. It is a First Person tower defence game. It sounds impossible but it actually works. You can get that for $15USD. You can also now get Terraria on Steam, and other places I suppose, for about $10USD. This game looks really cool. Most are calling it a 2D version of Minecraft but everyone who has played it is saying it isn't. When I get it( Probably this weekend) I'll do a review for you guys.

L.A. Noire is now out in Australia. It came out in the US a few days ago. It is from Rockstar, the creators of GTA and Red Dead. They used real actors for their characters and cut-scenes. The game's graffics look spectacular but from watching a couple of cut-scenes the characters movements look awkward when converted from real life to a video game. Check it out and make your own opinion.

Update for PlayStation and SOE players: PlayStation and SOE have started their welcome back packages. PSN and PSP users get to choose 2 games from a really good list. This list includes the likes of Little Big Planet and Infamous 1. There are a few more titles in that list too. Head over to the PSN blog to see all the details. I recommend you get Infamous 1 because Infamous 2 will be out soon.

That's all for this week. Happy Gaming.

PSN restored, sort of

Certain parts of the PSN have been restored. You will be required to change your password when you sign on. Several features have been restored and the rest will be restored later. Here is a link to the video that will explain everything:

Quick Update

Sorry about the lack of posts lately, I haven't bought any new games and I have been a bit slack. You can expect a post on Friday AEST. In this post I will give my E3 predictions. I'm not going to just predict what other people are predicting though, you can visit their sites for more certain predictions. I'll be predicting less expecting things, and some probably obvious ones. Now for some quick updates:

-PSN and SOE are still down. A spokesperson from Sony said they hope to fully restore the service by 31st May. Whether this happens or not remains to be seen. Sony have said that there will be a welcome back program which will included 30 days PlayStation Plus (Whatever that is) and it is rumoured that you will get 2 free PlayStation or PSP games. It is unclear whether these will be from a selected group of titles. There is also much debate about how Sony will release games that should have been released during the offline period. Will Sony release them all at once to keep up coming releases stable or push everything back?

-Brink was released last week and it has been getting mixed reactions. Some think it is a really good team shooter and some think it is very repetitive with poor graphics and colour. I'll be getting it eventually, maybe I'll see you guys on there(Xbox Live that is).

-Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3 will  be released in a bundle for XBLA and PSN(eventually) soon. The pack will sell for about $10.00.

- IGN have bought UGO and 1Up. Head over to ign.com to get the full details.

- Ubisoft have announced a 4th Assassins Creed game. It will be set in Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) and will feature Alta├»r, Ezio and Desmond as playable characters. Expect more to be announced in the coming weeks in the build up for E3.


- Mass Effect 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier have been postponed until early 2012. Expect trailers or gameplay videos at E3 though. 


- Dragon Quest X has been announced for Nintendo Wii. No word saying it will be released on DS or 3DS though. Dragon Quest IX was and most of the remakes are being released on DS so I'm surprised X isn't(Yet).


That's all for this week. Happy Gaming. 
Don't forget E3 June 7-9.
