Fav Five Friday: Games To Look For This E3*

*That we already know will be announced.

E3 is inching so close to us we can taste it. In fact, we are three months away from E3 and somewhere Gabe Newell just had a heart attack.

However, let us not waste precious time! June is right around the corner and THIS is your top 5 games to watch forat this year’s E3 event.

Now, the rules are different. Instead of listing 5 things, I am actually going to pick one from each major category (EA, Ubisoft, Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony). Let’s begin,  shall we?

MICROSOFT – Minecraft: Story Mode. For those of you who don’t know, Minecraft is now the property of Microsoft so I would not be surprised if this game gets announced at Microsoft’s E3. Also, it will be interesting to see how this game will look and feel, being it’s a story based game based off of a game that’s a free world based game.

SONY – Uncharted 4. This will be needed for a good E3 for Sony, as it was learned earlier this week that Uncharted’s release date was pushed back to 2016. Which blows. Hard. Maybe show some Beta footage along with a commercial. Get me excited to play this game, as I never had a PlayStation when Uncharted was a thing. It will be interesting to see how they turn this negative into a positive.

 

Zelda-wii-u-link-720

NINTENDO – (TIE) Zelda and Star Fox. Nintendo has hyped both of these games to no end ever since they were playing the open world Zelda game. I believe this is the time where Nintendo comes out guns a-blazing and shows us EVERYTHING about these two games. I want more, of course. Instead of watching some guy watch a green screen pretending he’s playing, play the game. DO A BARRELL ROLL! Oh God, I hope I actually get to play as Fox this time from the beginning and not ride a pterodactyl or something.

UBISOFT – Guess. I will give you three easy guesses on what I’m excited to see more information about. Show me something from Assassin’s Creed: Victory and my money will be tossed in your general direction, Ubisoft…it’s…it’s probably west. Do I need to tell you how Assassin’s Creed is going to be once Ubisoft announce it and show things from it? Hopefully no bugs, though. We don’t want that. I mean, look at England. LOOK AT IT!

ELECTRONIC ARTS: Mass. Effect. Four. Mass. Effect. Four. Mass. Effect. Four. Last year all we had was conception art, if this year is gameplay footage I will not be able to control my body. At all. I don’t expect gameplay, as it’s still quite possibly in the early early stages of development but man…I am a big Mass Effect fan and I don’t even know what to expect from this game. Do my choices in the first three games matter? Is Shepard in this? Is he not? Is this a prequel? Sequel? Do I play as a Prothean? Gah! Just tell me already!

Who Are the Best Couples in Video Games?

Princesses to Squadmates,

Love has always been in the eye of the gamer and who doesn’t love a good story? So here are MY Top 5 video game couples. (NOTE: This is my personal list, this is not a list that you should get all up in arms about. Don’t get all bitchy if your couple didn’t make the list, just post it in the comments).

5. Commander Shepard and (enter Romance here) – It started with Mass Effect, as Male Shepard, you had your choice of human Ashley or Asari, Liara T’Soni. As Female Shepard, you also had your choice of Liara and, also, Kaidan. In Mass Effect 2, you had your choice of ANY character in the Mass Effect realm. You could be constant and stay with your choice from 1 or you can choose any of the opposite sex characters in the game…with the exception of Urgnot Grunt and Samara (kind of). In 3, the list just keeps growing. ANYONE ON THE NORMANDY! ANYONE with the exception of Joker, EDI (obviously) and the doctor.

Heck, even Samara loosens up a bit.

So with the compatibility of Commander Shepard, I have to rank him (with anyone) on this list. You can’t just pick one.

4. Mario and Princess Peach – Come on, you know for a fact this was making the list. But I’m quite sure you thought you wouldn’t see this on the list this close. It’s for the simple fact that Princess Peach is kind of a bitch.

Hear me out: She gets captured in Super Mario and you have to find her and in every castle besides the last one, whose there? TOAD! Blocking your way to your lady friend! Who is for sure that Toad didn’t have his way with the Princess before she moved on to the other castle?

His reaction to you coming into the castle tells the whole story. Also, why is he in his underwear and a vest with no shirt? EXPLAIN THAT!

You know what they say: Once you go shroom, there’s no room.

Also, what do we learn about Peach during Super Mario Brothers 2? SHE CAN FLOAT TO SAFETY! How come she didn’t use that against Bowser? Why did she need a man to begin with?

Yes, this is a classic love story video game but there have been better relationships in the past.

639ef468550675fad2ceb73541414b34

3. Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man – I never got why they never got hitched. You would think with names so similar that they would just change that Ms. to Mrs.

These two are the epitome of love. I mean, they have the same story and similar enemies. The two of theme hit it off in the Arcade probably around the 1980s and some balls were definitely eaten at that point and time (heh).

In love, you have to have similarities and differences and those two were the reason. I really hope they found love and Pacman put a ring on it. Those two are made for each other.

2. Zelda and Link – BEFORE CHACHI GETS ON MY ASS, LET ME EXPLAIN! Those two are made for each other and their love, especially during the Ocarina of Time. I would have put them at #1 but when you find out why they’re number two, you will understand.

Legend of Zelda is a game about love. There is nothing wrong with coming in second in this game of love. Heck, Zelda (to me) is the best romantic video game series from top to bottom. There’s nothing that says love like saving the Princess. None. Zelda was made for Link. Link was made for Zelda. They both knew it and made for great story telling, which is why they are in a way higher spot than Mario and Peach.

Also this (Start it at 0:59)

But what beat Link and Zelda, you may ask?

1. Kafei and Anju – As I said, the Legend of Zelda series was riddled with Romance wherever you go and, honestly, when I think of Romance in Video Games, the two names that keep popping up weren’t even main characters in the game. This was a sidequest in Majora’s Mask! In fact, this was one of the most emotional scenes in any game that I’ve played! The longest sidemission in the game is one of the most heart wrenching moments.

You had to get everything just right for everything to make this happen. Go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Heck, it takes the last second, the very last second, for the two to find their love for each other and is one of the sadder moments in video games. Their love and Kafei’s complicated scenario made me want to go back and forth to FINISH THAT PART because that’s what love is, people, it’s loving someone on the inside and out. It’s not just banging the closest thing or saving the princess over and over again because the Princess just so happens to be extremely hot.

That part of the game is what games are made of and would be a movie itself.

That…or you can help the hand wipe its butt with their love, if you don’t care. It’s up to you, jerk.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
