The fact they've now chosen to brand any games which aren't part of multi-part mega franchises with an "original" label (and how few of those they're producing) just goes to show how creatively bankrupt EA really are. I feel sorry for the once great BioWare, reduced to making yet another online co-op shooter for their boardroom masters.

Just realised all your BSTs are an hour out, apart from the Nintendo one. They're all on GMT instead!
Yeah I changed them at the last minute when I saw YouTube's times then I realised they dun goofed because they forgot to make use of the Daylight Summer Time.

Cyberpunk 2077 looks f***ing awesome:

Still not sure if Fallout 76 has multiplayer or not, but hints maybe as you see multiple people wearing 76 jumpsuits. Also new weapons and enemy types it seems:

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
FROM SOFTWARE title revealed.
Published by Activision.
Basically a mix between Bloodborne and their PS2 title Kuon.
I was going to say Dark Souls, but set in Japan instead of the European Medieval aesthetic. Although looks like there's some form of platforming with the grappling hook:

I liked Dying Light and it looks like your choices will have an effect on the environment in 2:

Didn't want to watch the Tomb Raider trailer as I haven't finished the second game yet and need to avoid incase of spoilers. The rest I'm not bothered about for various reasons.

Really strong showing from Microsoft this year, a lot of stuff I liked the look of!

-Crackdown 3
I really loved the first one back in the day, and this new one looks like a ton of fun, as if it's taking the original and infusing it with a touch of Saint's Row silliness. Terry Crews can do no wrong.

-Cyberpunk 2077
Obviously I'm reserving judgment until gameplay, but the universe looks very interesting and promising. Never did really get into the Witcher, but this setting so far further up my street.

-Devil May Cry 5
Must admit, I've never really played a DMC game before, but this looks really cool. I love Platinum's character action stuff like Bayonetta and Neir, and this seems to be in the same vein, so you can count me in.

-Dying Light 2
The original was one of those games I really wanted to play but just sort of never got around to, but this sequel looks really ambitious with the choice system, not to mention the improved mechanics. I think I'll have to nab a copy of the first game and finally give it a go.

-Fallout 76
This sure does look like Fallout. I'm curious to see if the rumours of it being a survival crafting game were true or not, I guess I'll have to wait until Bethesda's conference to find out.

-Gears POP
God is dead.

-Halo Infinite
Far too vague a trailer for me to get excited over really, but I do like me some Halo, so I'm curious how this one will be different from the others, given they've dropped the number, seemingly implying a spin off of sorts.

-Jump Force
An impressive trailer, sure, but anyone can make a cool looking CGI trailer. I'll remain cautiously optimistic about the actual product.

-Metro Exodus
The older Metro games never really clicked with me, but the more open environments really have piqued my interest in this one. Might be another franchise I give a second try.

-Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
This just looks badass, don't think I've ever played a ninja game, but this certainly makes me think this will change in the near future.

-Tales of Vespira Definitive Edition
I'm a relative Tales newbie, I've only played Graces F, but I hear this is supposed to be a good one, so I'll be buying this one, albeit on Switch rather than Xbox.

I played Onimusha back in the day and Shinobi even further back, but that's it I think. With this and Tsushima coming I'll double my tally!

Most of the games are Muti platform. the only one im slightly jealous of is Forza 4. Can't say im that impressed, it just feels like Microsoft are gearing up for the next gen.

Tales of Vesperia is my favourite tales game! Its finally coming to ps4. I only bought a 360 to play this game!
Finally kingdom hearts 3.
I didn't bother with 2.8 because of the delays, I suppose I'll have to pick up a copy now.
Any news on Valkyria chronicles 4?

I'm also very happy to see a re-release of Tales of Vesperia. While I have a 360 I knew that the PS3 version was basically the 'Extended Cut' and was hoping for a new release. I'll be getting it on PS4.

Kingdom Hearts III has multiple trailers throughout E3 from what I have read so that's exciting. I'm fine with the January release date since I want the game to have as much QC done before it's out. I started my PS4 playthrough of the first game recently so I'm starting my journey of going though each game in release order lol. Still need to get 2.8 but at least it's gone down to a good price.

I believe Valkyria Chronicles 4 is out this October, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see an E3 trailer of sorts throughout the week.

I think I'll follow suit once I get through my back log of anime.
I'm a perfectionist when playing games, so its going to take me ages to get collect everything on kingdom hearts 1 and 2. :(

I'm really dreading The Last of Us 2 gameplay. I know it's just going to spoil the game and I shouldn't watch it, but I know I won't be able to stop myself. :confused:

Please just show multiplayer and nothing else.
