E3 2018 has officially come to a close. It smacked us right in the face with plenty of new game announcements, game previews, some solid press conferences, and some not so solid press conferences. *cough cough* Square Enix *cough cough* Now begins the hard part of waiting for these new games to actually release to the public! Here are 10 that I am impatiently waiting for the most:
E3 is coming! Every gamer’s biggest dream is to go to E3 at some point in their lives. You can fulfill that dream this year. The media only event will be opening its doors to us mere muggles this year, but there is a catch. There will be a limited amount of tickets available to the public. Only about 15,000 consumer passes so you will have to act fast when they go on sale.
The E3 consumer passes will go on sale this Monday, February 13th at 12PM ET. Tickets will originally go on sale at a price of $150, but will jump up to $250 after the 13th. E3 is held at the Los Angeles Convention center every June. You can find more info on E3 at the website right here.

At the E3 PC gaming event, Phil Spencer of Xbox announced that Killer Instinct will be appearing on PC. The game will also feature cross-play so Xbox One gamers can play with PC gamers.
This is pretty good news since I’ve been interested in trying out the new K.I. since I do not own an Xbox One at the moment. I’m definitely liking that Microsoft is starting to bring the PC community and the Xbox community a bit closer together.
The is no word on when K.I. will be released on PC just yet.
The Coalition’s Rod Fergusson announced that Gears of War Ultimate Editon will be on PC during the PC game show at E3. This really isn’t that much of a surprise since the first time this game came out, Gears was also on PC. None of the sequels made it, however. There is now word on whether the game will feature cross platform play or not. There was also no mention of whether Gears 4 will appear on PC at this time.
Nintendo is once again passing on having a whole big, flashy press conference and sticking with having a big, flashy, old fashioned Nintendo Direct E3 special. If it’s anything like last year, I’m all for it.
The event is scheduled to go live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel at 12:00 ET. Tune in here!
Ever since that announcement was made last night at Sony’s press conference, fans of the series went clamoring to the Kickstarter website to “Save Shenmue.” Apparently the Kickstarter website even had some problems processing all of the backers for Shenmue 3. The game has already met it’s goal as of this morning and it now becomes the fastest game to raise $2 million. Matter of fact it only took just 9 hours and the project still has 31 days left on Kickstarter.
It’ll be interesting to see if any stretch goals are created to raise even more money. I think it would be neat to include Shenmue 1 and 2 along with 3 all for the PlayStation 4. That would be the ultimate gift for any Shenmue fan. Another neat idea would be a special edition Dreamcast controller that works on PS4. That’s just wishful thinking though.
There is no release date for Shenmue 3 just yet, but the Kickstarter page has everything listed to be shipped by December 2017.
You can go back the game here!
That’s pretty much it. I mean what else is there to be said?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the last 24hrs, there were rumors that a FF7 remake was going to be announced by Sony. The lie detector determined that was true and Square says we get the game in 2017. Everybody rejoice! Take a look at the trailer below.
It’s only been one day into E3 and I already give E3 2015 an A+.
And it is epic. Kojima does a really good job of making you feel that this is really the end. It will definitely get you right in the feels. Can we have this game now please?
We should see more on the next Battlefront, Mass Effect, Mirrors Edge, sports games and more. It’s scheduled to start at 3pm ET.
It features free play guitar solos too. Now the drummer and guitarist can compete for best solo performance. Check out the behind the scenes look below.
Rockband will be on PS4 and Xbox One and you can use your old instruments from the last gen game.
