Just A Quick Update On Myself With my E3 Impressions

An update on the writer with perspective on E3.

I realize that since May 27th I have been rather M.I.A from GameSkinny. I will also not be posting as much soon after I get this new job of mine. It will take a lot of my time up. I know this isn't game news or reviews or anything, but I just wanted to let everyone who follows me or has read any of my work know my situation. 

I wanted to share my favorite and not so favorite E3 moments. So here we go with the list and reasoning for my favorites and non favorite.

 

The good:

  1. Assassin's Creed Unity: I was excited to see this, because I am a huge Assassin's Creed fanboy. The single-player co-op was my favorite part of the presentation.
  2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: I really didn't play the first two installments, but the presentation for the upcoming third installment made me excited and wanting to play the first two before getting the third. I really enjoy games of that time period.
  3. Halo: The Master Chief Collection: Now I know what some may think, "Who cares?!" To answer that, I do. Halo was my first multiplayer game online and Halo 2 is by far my favorite. I am happy to have four games for the price of one with access to a new Halo TV series and beta access to the multiplayer for Halo 5: Guardians.
  4. Star Wars: Battlefront: I don't think I have to explain my fandom for this, but I liked the little snippet of in-game engine footage for this game, even though I am kind of disappointed that we did not see gameplay demo. One of my most anticipated games.)
  5. The Division: This game is getting crazier the more the wait goes on. If there was ever a game that should have the potential to make Tom Clancy proud, it would be The Division.
  6. Dying Light: A zombie game with a more free fighting mechanic and parkour freedom, what can go wrong? Hopefully nothing. I cannot wait to get my hands on this title.
  7. Battlefield Hardline: As a Battlefield fan, I was happy to see that DICE and Visceral are taking a different turn away from the usual military warfare shooter.

The Bad:

  1. Grand Theft Auto 5 coming to next-gen: Rockstar wasted their presentation with this boring news. It's cool on PCs part, but I really don't see why they put that as their E3 presentation. Grand Theft Auto 5 wasn't even that great to begin with. Rockstar could have talked more about a Red Dead Redemption sequel they promised.
  2. Dead Island 2: I really had no problem with their presentation other than the fact that I wish they would worry more about finishing Dying Light since it was pushed back. I like the idea of it being brought to the states, which seems to offer more opportunities than Banoi did.
  3. Mirror's Edge 2: I did not care for the first Mirror's Edge, so I can't say that I am entirely too thrilled for another installment into the series.

The Neutral:

  1. Evolve: Even though I am getting this game, I was not wowed or excited by the presentation given for the game at E3.
  2. Sunset Overdrive: While it looks nice, I fear that it will end up tanking. Here's to hoping it does well.
  3. Dragon Age Inquisition: I never gave Dragon Age a chance, so I cannot say anything about this title.
  4. Infamous: First Light: Even though I liked Second Son for a while, I don't see First Light worth getting.

    You used a lower case g for "The good" and an upper case b for "The Bad". I'd also suggest putting a colon after Grand Theft Auto 5 for consistencies sake and restructuring the first sentence to something like "Rockstar wasted their presentation with the boring news that GTA 5 is coming to next-gen. The sentence after that where you say "It's cool on PCs part" is pretty nonsensical, I'm not sure what you mean by it. I'm guessing it should say something more like "It's cool that it's coming to PCs, but...etc etc".

    Non-favorite should have a - in the first sentence there. On number four of "the good" you forgot an "a" when you said "see (a) gameplay demo" On that same one you forgot the beginning parenthesis of the last line there. In number three of "the bad" you should drop the "too" after the entirely, or vice versa. The last sentence ends a bit weird, it should either by "I don't see (why) First Light (is) worth getting." or "I don't see First Light (as) worth getting."

    Not trying to troll or be a jerk, just trying to help. You can delete my comment after you read it if you want. Just wanted to point out some things that I think will help this article read better.
