SIPWU 6.7.13 – One More Week

It’s the final stretch! Only one more week until E3! Next week, I’ll be writing down gaming news, going to the movies, golfing, and living my life…Going to be busy couple of days.

At least I’ll be gone the week after that (June 18th). I’ll be fishing, shooting guns, and talking to family I haven’t seen for a whole year. Can’t wait!

Enjoy the update guys.

Gaming News and Info

Bungie / 343 / Halo

Halo Spartan Assault It’s official, Halo has now entered the mobile world. This new upcoming Halo game will be a Windows-8-exclusive and will hit stores sometime this month. Maybe it’s just me, but this game reminds me of Halo Wars. Maybe because Halo Wars and Spartan Assualt are both top-down shooters…

For those who haven’t seen it, here is the trailer.

Anyways, here is what to expect!

EA will come out @ 1PM PT, 4PM ET. Were expecting them to cover Sports, Battlefield 4, Sports, Need for Speed, Dragon Age III: Inquisition, and possibly Mass Effect with a small addition to more Sports…

Ubisoft’s conference begins @ 3PM PT, 6PM ET. They will be covering a bunch of upcoming hits like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Watch_Dogs, additional new IP by Watch_Dogs co-developer Reflections, and Just Dance.

Sony will take the floor @ 6PM PT, 9PM ET, promising nothing but greatness.

Nintendo…Cancelled their main conference. Instead they will be running a smaller conference @ Tuesday, June 11 at 7AM PT, 10 AM ET that will feature great games like Mario Kart Wii U reveal, The Legend of Zelda HD Wii U, 3D Super Mario Wii U, Super Smash Bros. 4, and Pokemon X/Y.

That’s just a brief brief version of Poke’s thread. For more info you can once again go to Poke’s Discussion Thread. He has plenty of links you can click on to stream the upcoming events.

Fable Anniversary A HD remake of Fable 1 is in the works thanks to the fans. The folks over at Lionhead Studio won’t stop teasing about it. Hopefully we learn more soon, Fable 1 Anniversary will be the first Fable to feature Achievements, which is awesome. Loading times will be non-existent but more importantly, you can still kick the chickens.

Diablo 3 Several months ago, Blizzard announced that one of their biggest franchises would be making its console debut this year. The Diablo series is known for looting more so than Borderlands and Final Fantasy combined.

Diablo III has been confirmed for Xbox 360 with all of the goodies that PC gamers got this year; updates, four-player online co-op, and all the other amenities. New, console-only additions (that were obviously needed) include a new camera and control scheme to keep the gaming as fluid as possible.
This will be available worldwide on September 3rd, this year.

Reaper's new child

Remember Me Just in case you haven’t heard about it, Remember Me is a new IP from Capcom. This game has a pretty unique story in the way games go. It’s not a FPS out of space/military shooter. It’s not a racing game. Story-wise, you play Nilin, one of the best memory hunters that exists in the year 2084. The concept of the game is you can trade memories with other players, forgetting certain things and learning new things. Here’s the newest release trailer.

This game is available now. Looking for something new and different? This is it, SIP.

Thief Ever heard of this upcoming stealth game called Thief? I haven’t seen it before but I guess it’s from a long string of games (Thief: The Dark Project, Thief II: The Metal Age, and Thief: Deadly Shadows).

I’m not going to lie, the game looks pretty good. Thief, will be the 4th addition of it’s kind (excluding the remake of The Dark Project) and will release sometime next year.

Watch as Garrett (the main character) expresses his love of taking things from others in the trailer below.

Konami Conference

Metal Gear Phantom Pain Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was made official during the conference. You heard right, Solid Snake is back an with a different voice.

Say goodbye to David Hayter and say hello to Kiefer Sutherland.

That’s not really a bad trade off. I’m just glad that it has a normal name. That whole “revengeance” thing…which isn’t a word…caused Hammy some serious migraines.

Castlevania It’s official. Despite rumours of there never being a sequel to Lords of Shadow, Konami pretty much flipped critics the bird by announcing that there is a sequel AND…giving us a trailer. Lords of Shadow 2 has quite a few new upgrades. It’s running on an upgraded Mercury engine, upgraded Patrick Stewart’s voice (…j/k), has new enemies, and new combat skills.
Check out the latest trailer.

Xbox One

Microsoft Who’s excited to play on the new Xbox One controller? I know I am, Major Nelson wrote an article about the improvements we’ll see in the new controller here.

Oh, and speaking of privacy, the Kinect and Xbox have on/off buttons. They won’t ALWAYS be watching you (thank goodness).
