Games | News | Sony at E3 2017: Announcements

So, this year at E3, Sony's presentation was on Monday 12th June, at stupid o'clock for us here in the UK, so I didn't get to see it directly, sadly enough. Living vicariously through the highlight reel on YouTube hoping my boss doesn't notice, #rebel. Sony's announced games were more of a mixed bag for me this year than normal; I don't have any form of VR capabilities at my home, nor do I plan to have any in the near future, simply due to space and financial constraints, but which were a fair few of the games shown in this presentation. Normally I'm a lot more excited about what Sony has to show overall, but this year that excitement is saved for only a particular few. Full showcase embedded at the bottom of the post.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

What I'm looking forward to:

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
I for one was never too enchanted with Drake. While I liked the gameplay and am again, forever going to be an obsessive collectible collector, I never clicked with Drake. He's a bit of a douche, and the woman in The Lost Legacy looks like she's a bit of a dick as well. However, I'm always going to love these treasure hunter games, so I'm just psyched to see what they can do with the Uncharted franchise starring a woman and not make it a Tomb Raider.

Shadow of the Colossus
I missed this the first time around, but it is very much the kind of game that I used to absolutely adore, and have since left behind somewhat. It looks gorgeous, and it's so highly recommended from everyone I've spoken to that's played it that I'm glad it's coming round again in an updated form.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC
I haven't actually finished Horizon Zero Dawn as it's taken on, for me personally, an almost Assassin's Creed style of pacing in the beginning, making it hard to get stuck into. However, I really like the elements of mashing robotics with people who appear to stuck somewhere post-Bronze age, and wanting to know the story of how that's come to be is what's pushing me through the slog of really starting up the game. I'm about to do the coming of age trial, and I'm assuming the pace will pick up after that. If it does, I will totally be on board for expanding the world of HZD with this DLC.

Days Gone
I've been after a more realistic post-pandemic wipe out game á la The Last of Us, and Days Gone looks like it will happily hit the spot.
