It’s that time of the year again. E3 is just around the corner and we all know what to expect. But all of us have a wishlist and here are the Top 5 things we want at E3.
5. The Next Zelda
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword received perfect scores from over 30 publications and amazing reviews and scores from others. With gamers on high alert with the features of the Wii U, a new Zelda game for the console would be the cherry on the cake. Sure it’s a long shot and it’s only a while since the previous one came out but we expect Nintendo to unveil a new Zelda game for the fans and maybe it’ll be for the Wii U.
4. Alan Wake Sequel
We all got spooked, thrilled and loved Alan Wake for it’s amazing gameplay, characters and storyline and it did leave us hanging on the cliff at the end of the game. Everyone who has played Alan Wake have been craving for a sequel and since E3 is just around the corner most of us will be surprised to find out that there’s an Alan Wake sequel. With the lead writer of Alan Wake, Remedy’s Sam Lake tweeting “It’s all true. ‘It will happen again, in another town, a town called Ordinary.’ It’s happening now”. A sequel to Alan Wake may be on the cards sooner rather than later.
3. Killzone 4
Most of you who have played Killzone 3 would have seen the after credits seen where two surviving Hazmat soldiers from Stahl Arms. The Stahl soldiers address the individual as ‘sir’ as they welcome him back to Helghan. Post-Credits scenes always indicate a sequel and rarely has it been otherwise. It can be assumed the sequel will most likely take place a long time after the events of Killzone 3 since the surviving population would need to replenish their loses. If there is a Killzone 4, the losses the Helghast have suffered will positively cause a riot or rebellion to the senate.
In July 2007, Sony had announced that Rockstar was working on a new franchise for the PlayStation 3. The Details of the project, which included it’s title, were not announced until June 2009 during the Sony press conference at E3. So after almost 5 long years of working on this project can we expect a possible teaser at E3? We sure can. Announcing this game may delay the release of the highly anticipated “Grand Theft Auto V” but for a game that has been in development since 2007 deserves to be released now. Unless Rockstar is going for total perfection, which they are usually good at, Agent will be something most gamers would love to see at E3.
1. Xbox [720?]
Possibly what all gamers want to see this year at E3 is the console for next generation gaming. Going by it’s codename Durango or it’s widely popular name, the Xbox 720 is the most anticipated and hopeful announcement that fans want Microsoft to make. An extreme possibility considering the number of rumors that have been coming out over the past few months, The Xbox 720 is something most of was would want to see. After all the boring Microsoft E3 presentations over the past couple of years maybe this time they can add some flair and drive the fans crazy. Come on Microsoft! You know what we want!
Some of these may seem like a long shot. Some may not. But let’s just hope the respective companies do actually reveal one of our items on the wish list. Gamers all over are expecting one of these items to turn into reality, keeping our fingers crossed is all we can do right now. E3 2012 is sure to have a lot of surprises for us. Let’s hope it’s a big one.
