Looking forward to E3 2014!

It's finally here, the greatest gaming event of the year!

So pumped up for the event, even though I'm dead tired. Over here in Singapore, it starts in the wee hours of the morning. So I can get a good rest before I start my E3. Will be skipping the Microsoft Press Conference. EA also seems to have lost me over the years so I'll get the news from the reports if I can't wake up for it. (Gone are the days when I can sit up all night long, without having to worry about work the next day)

Ubisoft's Conference is the one I'll be looking out for. That starts at 6am and lasts for an hour I think.. So just enough time to get ready for work and hopefully I'll be at work in time for the Sony Press Conference. Obviously, I'm very interested to see what Sony has to offer.

Ubisoft Press Conference

Assassin's Creed Unity - Undoubtedly, the big one for Ubisoft this year. Can't wait to get more concrete info on the character, plot and the highly-anticipated multiplayer.

With Assassin's Creed, there will be CEs. I'm expecting them to be revealed alongside the game's reveal.

Assassin's Creed Comet - While AC Unity has had plenty of leaks, hints and rumours, the other AC game for this year has been surprisingly quiet. How much importance this game will get, remains to be seen. Will be a surprise if it's a no-show at E3.

Far Cry 4 - I have never played the Far Cry games before, but watching the game-play and the unexpected success of Far Cry Blood Dragon has given me more interest in this series. I already have Far Cry 3, so it just might be pushed high up my priority list of backlog games after the reveal of Far Cry 4.

The Crew - Still not totally sold on this yet.. concept is interesting but I don't really need too many driving games.

Tom Clancy's The Division - Haven't really been following this game after last year's reveal.

Sony's Press Conference

God of War 4? - A supposed leaked schedule shows a "Gof of War 4". Kinda fatigued from the franchise but we will see how it goes.

Uncharted 4? - Another franchise that I surprisingly have never tried before.. Maybe this might change it?

Infamous Second Son DLC? - Also spotted in the leaked schedule was some DLC for Infamous Second Son, perhaps a story mode?

The Rest

Evolve - One of the very few new IPs that I'm very interested in. Tried out the game in the exclusive Asia Preview event and I can say I'm very impressed and looking forward to it's release. 

Let's see what details E3 brings..

Mortal Kombat X - Until it's announcement, Evolve and AC Unity were my most anticipated games for this year's E3 but now I just can't wait for more details on this game. 

More or less, I think I know what I can expect from the other 2 games, but this is the one that can spring a lot of surprises.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - Just like you can never have enough guns, you can never have enough loot-hunting. The plot usually baffles me in the Borderlands games, so just looking forward to more details on the classes.


Prince of Persia - I have said it and I'll say it again. This is one of my all-time favourite franchises. So-much-so that I will gladly trade a year of No Assassin's Creed for a Prince of Persia game. Will be a good decision to put a PoP game early in the curren-gen cycle. It's been a long wait, please Ubisoft..

Army of Two - I was thinking hard on what EA could offer, that would interest me and up pops Army of Two. This series never had stunning reviews or sales but I haven't heard anything about cancelling any future Army of Two games. It's been a while since the last one, so could it be time for a new one? Always had fun with these.

Grand Theft Auto (PS Vita game) - There's been rumours of a GTA Stories in development. A DLC for GTA Online or a PS Vita game?

Either way, Rockstar Games won't be at E3, so any announcement would probably be during Sony's Press Conference.

Bully 2 - Oh yea.. another Rockstar Game that has some rumours flying around, could there be an announcement to continue Rockstar's yearly AAA title.

And these are the list of games that I'm looking forward to and the ones I hope to hear. Also hoping to have some new IP catch my eye and some exclusive Vita games that I can load up on the go.

What are your games for this year's E3? What games are you hoping for an announcement? Or are you just looking for what new features the new Consoles can offer? Let me know!
