E3 2011 has come and gone, with exciting announcements from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, and many others; here’s my top 10 favorites from E3 2011.
1. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – With a completely revamped engine, new spells, shouts, dragons, dual wielding spells and weapons, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far my most anticipated game of 2011. After watching Skyrim demo’d yesterday, all I can say is, November can’t come fast enough. Bring it, Bethesda.
2. BioShock Infinite – Even though BioShock 2 was disappointing and wasn’t developed by Irrational Games (developers of the first BioShock), it’s still one of my favorite series of all time. BioShock Infinite, however, looks absolutely incredible and is back in the hands of Irrational, shaping up to be an amazing game.
3. The Darkness 2 – Jackie is back and ready to kick even more ass than before. The Darkness 2 takes place 2 years after the first and has Jackie battling new enemies with some crazy combos, upgradable powers, and quad wielding. ‘Nuff said.
4. Halo 4 – Even though they’ve managed to milk the hell out of Halo and I still can’t help but get excited for new Halo games. Halo 4 picks up where Halo 3 left off. Check out the teaser trailer here.
5. Halo CE Anniversary – Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary has been completely revamped, with updated graphics and online multiplayer, you can relive those LAN days with friends from around the world in HD sexiness!
6. RAGE – I’m a huge sucker for post apocalyptic games and RAGE in particular looks incredible, developed by the masterminds behind Doom and Quake, this amazing looking shooter makes my nipples hard. Don’t believe me? Watch this trailer and see for yourself.
7. Gears of War 3 Limited Edition 320gb Xbox 360 – Packed with a copy of Gears of war 3, a 320gb HD, 2 sexy Gears branded controllers, Infected Omen Weapon Skin Pack, and an Adam Fenix multiplayer character; this drool worthy Gears of War 3 Limited Edition Xbox 360 will soon be mine.
8. Wii U – Finally, my favorite Nintendo characters in HD like they so much deserve. My favorite feature in the Wii U is the controller packed with a 6.2″ screen, dual analog sticks, camera, microphone, and much more. Players can now switch from big screen to playing on screen on their controller and continue right where they left off.
9. 24-inch 3D PlayStation-branded LCD TV – I’m not looking to go out and spend thousands on a new TV, just to play 3D so this $499 PlayStation branded bundle works perfect for me.
10. PlayStation Vita – PlayStation Vita brings new, much needed improvements, to their portable gaming system. With new features such as a touch screen, upgraded graphics, Dual analog sticks (FINALLY), cloud support, and much more. The PlayStation Vita will be must have for me.
