- Review: Shenmue 3 for Xbox One: Will it ever be?!
We saw no in game footage, but the cut scene we were treated to was solid, if not a little generic. It will undoubtedly titillate fans of the series.
Very little was revealed about Quantum Break, other than a jarring mash up of soap opera drama featuring live action footage of a family and what appears to be a little girl with psychic powers, and a rather impressive CGI boat crashing through a bridge. The footage was spectacular but got a seemingly confused reaction from the 200 strong crowd watching - at this point nobody quite knows what to expect from Quantum Break.
Microsoft were keen to show us famous sports personalities during their montage of sports games, which unfortunately didn't include footage of actual gameplay. Being the first of their kind on next gen consoles we can no doubt expect these games to be more than just your average yearly upgrade.
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Beautiful visuals, impressive gameplay and exclusive DLC - Call of Duty fans will not be disappointed with what was shown at the unveiling. In fact, Call of Duty fans will be the only fans NOT disappointed. We're all just going to have to wait a little longer to really dive in to some Xbox One titles.
Microsoft confirmed that there will be 15 first party games within the first year, 8 of which will be brand new IP's (one of those being Quantum Break). No doubt more details will trickle through within the lead up to E3.
With rumors continuing to gain speed regarding the next generation console from Microsoft dubbed the Xbox One, games developers must be eagerly looking for opportunities to exploit the all new hardware contained within. Can you imagine stepping into a game world that resembles the amount of detail contained with a movie like Avatar? Can you imagine enhanced Artificial Intelligence creating more challenges and increasing the lifespan of titles? Can you imagine what possibilities the Kinect could offer to gamers in the future as motion technology is perfected? The Xbox One may be a while away from reaching us yet, but there is plenty to look forward to with lots of potential games on the horizon.
We already know that an all new Halo experience is waiting in the wings for the existing Xbox 360, with a sneak peak shown at E3 2011. But what could come next in the saga? Halo has continued to pull in the punters to the Xbox, and with new developer 343 Industries replacing Bungie we're expecting some new life to be breathed into this series. This life could easily continue into the next generation Xbox console. With the increased processing power that the Xbox One will bring to the table can you imagine how immersive the Halo universe could become? Just imagine facing Covenant foes with intelligence; foes who can learn your movements and hunt you down as you and your best buddies work together to complete the campaign mission. Halo Reach started the principle of making levels harder not simply be increasing the quantity of bad guys, but by making them more intelligent. Just imagine where this could go with the enhanced technology on offer!
Gears of War 4
Yes, we know, the Gears of War trilogy is coming to an end with the release of Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360. Or is it? The developers have certainly promised that they will wrap up the storyline at the culmination of the third installment of Gears of War, but they have also mentioned that they won't actually be blowing up the world in which the games are set. Thereby leaving plenty of room for the already greatly desired sequels. Improvements to the Horde mode within Gears of War are being released with the third game, but imagine what Horde version three could look like. Swiping your chainsaw through the bodies of irritating drones will never be the same again with next generation graphics making that spurting blood look all the more gory.
Assassin's Creed 3
Ubisoft are certainly milking the Assassin's Creed characters Ezio and Altair for all they're worth, with the release of an intermediary game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations for the Xbox 360. We're more excited however of the prospect of the promised third game in the series, featuring an entirely new character in an entirely different time period. Whether Assassin's Creed 3 will make it for the Xbox One, or if it will be the fourth installment that we are likely to see on our next generation console remains to be seen. Either way we are looking forward to exploring a vast new map which the One will be powerful enough to run in intricate glory. And what's more; the one annoyance that's always let down the series - your foes standing in a neat circle, attacking one at a time until you gradually dispatch them all - could be completely removed with the promised improvements to artificial intelligence that the increased processing power will offer. Instead of waiting to attack, your enemies could have their own intelligence, teaming up in an attempt to take you out and making the entire experience more realistic and challenging.
The World of the MMO
Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games are more than just a mouthful and a half to say, they are also taking the PC gaming world by storm. Popular games such as World of Warcraft have millions of active players, but have generally been restricted to computers. What if this is the time for the genre to make the jump to console? Now that the internet is more deeply ingrained into our console gaming we see no reason that these multiplayer games couldn't start to make the transition.
