Favorite moments from E3 2017

June 15, 2017

E3 was as awesome as ever. While I can't possibly list all the sweet announcements from this year's expo, I am going to highlight some of my personal favorite moments from E3 2017.

 
New Uncharted: The Lost Legacy trailer

You guys knew this would be on my list. It was awesome to get a closer look at the upcoming Uncharted 4 single-player DLC, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. I'm still working on my Crushing playthrough of Uncharted 4; I need to make sure I finish before Aug. 22, when The Lost Legacy is slated to come out. I can't wait to find out how Chloe and Nadine ended up as partners.

 

New Days Gone gameplay

Sony Bend's upcoming title, Days Gone, is looking better than ever. At first glance, it looks like just another post-apocalyptic zombie game; when The Last of Us was first announced, I thought that would be "just another zombie game," too. The new video showed the main character, Deacon, using the zombie hordes to his advantage to take down human enemies. The number of zombies on screen at once is truly terrifying, and awesome. I can't wait for this game.

 

Hidden Agenda

Hidden Agenda is a new title from developer Supermassive games, the creators of one of my favorite games - Until Dawn. This game immediately caught my attention because it uses an awesome new mechanic called PlayLink, which lets a group of people play the game together using their phones. What I love about it is that it's a single-player game, but it allows you to play it like a party game with your friends at home. The game is all about a group of people trying to stop a serial killer, so it should be a really intense party game, and I can't wait to try it.

 

Mega weird Super Mario Odyssey trailer

In the bizarre new trailer for the Nintendo Switch's first Mario game - Super Mario Odyssey - we learn that Mario's signature cap is now magical and has a fitting name - Cappy. When Mario throws his cap onto his enemies, Mario "possesses" them - the enemies grow a Mario-stache and become friendly when they're possessed by Cappy. In the trailer, we see Cappy on a human (which is so weird to see in a Mario game), Goombas, a taxi cab, and even a freaking dinosaur. The trailer is linked above - make sure you check it out. This game looks so wild and I cannot wait for October 27. Oh, yeah... I forgot to mention that the game is coming out in FOUR MONTHS.

 

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Life is Strange was one of my favorite games of the year when it released in 2015. I am so excited about Before the Storm (Bts), a prequel to the first season of Life is Strange. In BtS, we are going to learn a lot more about Chloe and Rachel Amber's relationship. Dontnod will not be developing BtS, as they are working on the second season of Life is Strange. Developer Deck Nine is excited to be working on the game, and after watching this developer diary, I feel confident that this game is in good hands. The first of three episodes will be released on Aug. 31 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (Steam).
