Nikki aka This is HXC/ Chief Operating Officer E3 is always super exciting for gamers, and I’d love nothing more than to see EA announce the next Dead Space during their conference or Microsoft confirm the rumored Halo: Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Of course, if neither company decides to make my day…I’ll settle for over the top explosions and confetti- which is unlikely, so I’ll end up getting excited for whatever all the companies and studios bring. Kyle aka Swarley / Staff Writer The Monday of E3 week is undoubtedly my favorite day of the entire year. First and foremost, I’m ready for Naughty Dog to melt our faces at the Sony press event with an Uncharted trailer that sets the bar for console graphics. I think Crystal Dynamics will show off a trailer and/or gameplay for Tomb Raider 2 (and give us an official game title). I fully expect both Sony and Microsoft to wow us with some new exclusive IPs. Finally, I’m excited to see more on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Star Wars: Battlefront and I’m really hoping we finally get something on Sleeping Dogs: Triad Wars. Chris aka Nitefyre/ Staff Writer E3 is coming up and what I’m looking forward to the most is definitely some more news about Kingdom Hearts 3, and hopefully more on Cyberpunk 2077. I know everyone is pumped for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and I am as well but we have yet to hear anything about Cyberpunk 2077 so I expect something about it. I have been also been really trying to contain my hype for Dragon Age: Inquisition, lets hope Bioware keeps their streak going with what they have to show us this year. I have liked what I have seen so far but still remain cautiously optimistic about this game, here is hoping E3 will show us something, really spectacular. Nick C. aka Strife aka ThatNickC/ Editor in Chief Star Wars. That’s what I want to see at E3. EA needs to show Battlefront, Visceral’s new Star Wars game, and Bioware’s new Star Wars game. In fact, EA should just call their conference “Star Wars The Next Generation” (suck it Trekkies!). Aside from Star Wars, I definitely want to see Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV. Kingdom Hearts has been a near and dear franchise of mine since I was a freshman in high school, and Final Fantasy was the first game series to show me that games truly could be art. Nick B. aka Avialence/Review & Editorial Writer This year at E3 I’m looking for Star Wars, and plenty of it. EA needs to show off the new Battlefront the same way they did Battlefield 4, with 64 computers and a multiplayer match. I’m hoping they reveal the other projects they have their studios working on, mainly Visceral and Bioware’s projects. I’m curious to see what Ubisoft is cooking up for The Division and Assassin’s Creed: Unity demos too, especially because of the cooperative focus in both games. Outside of that? We know Bethesda is cooking up the next Fallout or Elder Scrolls, and I’m certain a 30 second teaser would steal the show for me. I’m counting on E3 this year to be filled with interesting material, especially since the Xbox One and PS4 have been available for quite some time. Eric S. aka bassguitarist48 / News Editor As many have said already, everyone will be expecting various Star Wars games to make an appearance this year following EA’s game rights acquisition to the franchise last year. I expect big things from Sony this year. A lot of pressure is on those guys to follow up their spectacular show at E3 last year and I don’t think they’ll disappoint. If rumors are to be trusted, Sony has trademarked two new games: Kill Strain and Entwined. I’d like to think we might see these two games being shown off at E3, in addition to a few others. Apart from that Square Enix needs to keep the momentum going on Final Fantasy XV if they hope to keep people interested after 8 years since it was originally announced under a different title. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. I don’t think this E3 will disappoint. Alex R. aka Zero Syndicate / Lead Writer Anything that isn’t a shooter or a sequel… please… Something fresh, something exciting, something innovative! We have new consoles, lets use them for more than overly hyped up CG cinematic players! At this point I’ve given up on anything Square might ever show us, Sony still can’t figure out what to do with their new console except explode it with particle effects, Microsoft is still trying to figure out what people really want to buy, Nintendo is releasing games that probably should’ve come out last year to keep them relevant, an I can certainly guarantee Activision to show off yet another Call of Duty… Sure I have my franchise staple of Battlefield Hardline, but please… give me something new! Enrique C. aka Edgetroll / Reviews Editor I’m hoping Nintendo will pull some stuff out of the bag, same with Microsoft. Both companies have been making strives to give gamers more of what they want. With a new head honcho in charge of Microsoft, it looks like they’re focusing on using the Xbox One for actual games instead of that whole “all in one media” kerfuffle, and actually listening to consumers for a change. I’m hoping they’ll be showing some new IP’s instead of rehashing the same sequels they seem to play it safe with. Also, please, No Usher. Nintendo on the other hand, I’m hoping they show us some classics. With the insane amount of success Mario Kart 8 had, it goes to show that people still have a soft spot for Nintendo. The company can pull out those classic titles and leave people smiling, so I want to see a new Zelda, Smash Bros footage, and some more information on that damn Xeno game they showed years ago. GIEF ME MY MECHS NINTENDO! Jessica S. aka greenstraw3454 / Staff Writer I’m incredibly excited as usual for E3 and I’m expecting some pretty spectacular announcements. As many of the other staff members have mentioned, I’m hoping for Star Wars games, especially Battlefront. I’m also crossing my fingers for some sort of news on Final Fantasy XV (please, please, give us a release date after 8 years of its announcement!) I’m really looking forward to Sony and Microsoft’s press conference because I’m sure they’ll have plenty to show us, exclusives and new IPs abound, hopefully! Also, Nintendo, I’m hoping you have good things, especially with the success of Mario Kart 8, the excitement over Super Smash Bros., and the lack of success with the Wii U. Good things, good things, Nintendo! Don’t let me down! Jordan S. aka True Valk / Staff Writer At this point I am actually a little confused what we are going to see this E3. Microsoft has already announced all their business stuff already so you would think that it would be just GAMES GAMES GAMES for them. I hope thats all we see because up until now the Xbox One and PS4 have been starved for content. Sony has delayed some pretty big games in the last few weeks so it looks like they wanted to push the loss of exclusives titles this year from their press conference and as for Nintendo I think every one has seen a ‘leaked’ list for their press conference and if any of that is true its pretty exciting. When it comes down to it thats what I want. I want this year to end strong for gaming. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo can announce the most amazing games for the next two years but it won’t matter to me. Give me something to be excited about this fall/winter! Vanessa F. aka V Rex/ CEO I really want to see something from the new Mass Effect. We know it is in development but it seems to be in it’s early stages of developments so we may not get gameplay but I would like to see a teaser of the game. I am also interested in seeing more in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I’m also excited to see everything Star Wars. What I really want is legitimate announcements and gameplay for upcoming titles and announcements of new IPs. We got all the systems last year, this year is all about the games so I am being open and optimistic about what we will see and not letting myself be disappointed by what comes of it. I have confidence that developers know this is the time to show out because it will set the tone for the rest of the year.
