The 25 Most Bad Ass Games Of E3 2015 – PART 2
In my first list you got number 25 to 13 of the most impressive game trailers and in-game demonstrations shown at the E3 2015 expo. In this list I count down to the number 1 bad ass trailer.
E3 2015 has gone’tah pasture but not before making my eyes have multiple eyegasms. This year’s expo continued to showcase impressive game trailers and in-game demonstrations. Saying these clips are awesome is an understatement. The graphics on most of these titles are unreal and it feels like we’re finally getting into the groove of seeing the real power behind the XBOX One and PS4.
BEST 25 GAMES OF E3 2015
12.Fallout 4 (Cross Platform) RPG
In this post-apocalyptic game the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Very cool that you can play as a male or female and you can create your own ethnicities. Props to the game designers for this feature!
11.Cuphead (XBOX One, PC) Run and Gun
The throwback nod to the cartoons from the 1930’s is greatly appreciated with Cuphead. I mean this is a virtual old school cartoon that you can play. It almost had me thinking why someone hasn’t done this before; not forgetting Disney’s Epic Mickey. As Cuphead, the player fights a series of bosses to repay a debt to the devil. The player has infinite lives and co-operative players. I think this could be a fun date night game.
10.Uncharted 4 (PS4) Third Person Shooter
Supposedly this will be the last Uncharted game featuring protagonist Nathan Drake. Set three years after the events of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Nathan’s believed dead older brother suddenly appears, seeking Drake’s help. Together they embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a conspiracy behind a long lost pirate colony and its fabled pirate treasure. Yay treasure hunt.
9.Call of Duty: Black Ops (Cross Platform) First Person Shooter
It’s Call of Duty. No explanation needed.
8.Mirrors Edge 2 (Cross Platform) First Person Action Adventure
Faith Conners is back kicking butt with her parkour skills in this sequel. Like the first game, players have to complete missions while evading enemies traversing from building ledges, ziplines and sliding down pipes and walls. If you haven’t played this type of first person game before it can be a bit, vertigo-ish but once you get used to it, it is fun and exciting.
7.Batman Arkham Knight (Cross Platform) Third Person Action Adventure
I’m sure you already know the plot of this game. Batman has to defend Gotham against it’s villains. He does have some friends (Robin and Night Wing amongst others) to help him along this go-round. What is the real difference here…its darker, the graphics are out of this world and the action looks intense. Check out the game demo and two of the many trailers released.
6.Halo 5: Guardians (XBOX One) First Person Shooter
As a Halo fan…OMG I can’t Fu#king wait for this game! The Halo franchise is easily one of the biggest in gaming history. In my opinion what is even more ground breaking with Halo 5, it will have an African American protagonist, Agent Jameson Locke. This is the same Agent Locke (played by actor Mike Colter) who stared in the film Halo Nightfall. Colter’s star is taking off as he is also staring as Marvel’s Luke Cage in Netflix’s AKA Jessica Jones and will also get his own series on the streaming service. Back to Halo, Agent Locke leads a team to find the legendary Master Chief after the events of Halo 4. As usual the unsurpassed multiplayer returns with even bigger and badder battle arenas which will provide HOURS of triumphs and hurt feelings.
5.Doom 4 (Cross Platform) First Person Shooter
The granddaddy of First Person Shooters is back in typical shotgun demon killing fashion. Some may put this in the horror/gore genre due some game play elements that features claustrophobic jump scare scenarios. This has to be played with the lights out.
4.Ghost Recon: Wildlands (Cross Platform) First Person Shooter
Another Tom Clancy Ghost Recon shooter but there are some differences with this latest title. 1) It will not be set in the future but more in the original Ghost Recon. 2) This version will feature an open world environment. This really does look good!
3.Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of The Fallen Empire (PC) Online Role-Playing
Knights of the Fallen Empire is said to feature a renewed focus on cinematic storytelling, as well as new worlds, new companions, and a dynamic story that will be affected by the choices players make. If you look at past cinematic scenes from previous editions on Youtube, you see The Old Republic has some fantastic sequences so if this new installment promises more…um WOW!
2.The Last Guardian (PS4) Third Person Action Adventure
This game is been in development since 2007, no really. It follows a boy and his protective giant bird dog dragon who work together to solve puzzles while evading the bad guys. Supposedly the game play demo is legit and a release date has been set for 2016. The interaction between the boy and his beast along with the cinematic score really bring a sense of real emotion to this demo. I’m anxious to see the finished product.
1. Star Wars Battlefront (Cross Platform) Action Shooter
I’ve already made it known how I feel about this game in another post but these two game play trailers…AMAZEBALLS! Star Wars: Battlefront allows for a first-person or third person/over the shoulder view that players can toggle between any time seamlessly. Players traverse planets, such as Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust. To navigate the world, players use a variety of vehicles, including both air and land-based. YES! Finally we can pilot all of the bad ass vehicles and walkers from the Star Wars films. By this being a cross platform game that will release a couple of weeks before a new Star Wars film, I have a feeling this will be the biggest selling game of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016.
