Tomorrow morning all eyes in the gaming world will turn on Los Angeles Convention Center as the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo begins. GameGeex will be there, covering the show from the press conferences to the show floor, and everything in between. We're can't wait to share it all with you. But which games are the geex most interested in knowing more about? We asked, they answered:
Arthur "Arturis" Orneck: I can feel this years E3 bearing down on me like a runaway freight train overloaded with gaming dynamite, and I mean that entirely in a good way. If I don't get some hands-on play time with Bioshock Infinite someone is gonna bleed. Other games that are on my hands-on list are Zelda: Skyward Sword, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and Batman: Arkham City. Oh yes, criminal heads will roll. Also, I hope my morbid curiosity revolving around the bizarre display of stone god thrashing that is Asura's Wrath will finally be sated enough to stop the reoccurring nightmares once and for all.
Michael Revis: Rumors have been flying around regarding the revival of a popular fighting game series from yesteryear. With this in mind, I'm hoping for either Darkstalkers or Killer Instinct. Either of those will get me giddy, though considering how Capcom has been focused on making Street Fighter 4 and Marvel 3 as unbalanced as possible, the latter is probably going to be the more favorable scenario to shoot for.
Emma Hughes: Being a MMO-lover through and through and probably one of the very few gamers in the world without a PS3 or Xbox in her possession, it is understandable that I have had my eye on the RPG category of games due to appear at E3 2011. One of the games that I have been interested in for a decent while now is TERA, with an impressive lore behind it and a diverse array of races including the ever so cute Poporis, a race of small yet resolute woodland creatures who have been awakened to defend the world they love. Can you tell I am a girl? Anyway, aside from being able to play badass, podgy raccoons, TERA boasts a fresh, new combat system coined as "true action combat" which promises to out-do the popular, yet tried and true method of simply targeting and auto attacking mobs. Combine that with a gigantic world, huge (literally, huge) bosses and what look to be stunning graphics and TERA definitely becomes a game to watch.
Me? I'm jonsing to get my hands all over Skyrim and Bioshock Infinite, to see what new title CD Projekt is unvailing, to find out more about the new Square Enix Final Fantasy games (the MMO and the XIII sequel), to learn as much as possible about Mass Effect 3, to heal again in TERA, and to bring you any breaking news I can while attempting to keep from passing out from the excitement. Which games are you most interested in seeing? Let us know so we can keep an eye out and give you all the infoz you crave.
