Where does he get those wonderful toys? – The Joker

Armada’s E3 picks: Star Wars – Battlefront 3 (11/17/15)

 

Now I played this series and can see what the hub-bub is, by far the only good Battlefield game in existence (even though it’s technically Battlefront here).

Armada’s E3 picks: Shenmue 3 (TBA)

 

 

I never played but I know a lot of you did, now that it’s funded, I can see what the hub-bub is… Sooner to later.

I’m not going to kill you. I want you to do me a favor. I want you to tell all your friends about me. I’m Batman. – Batman

Armada’s E3 picks: Rainbow Six – Siege (10/13/15)

 

As you well know ‘The Division’ is the Tom Clancy version of the world that totally eats it via Bio Terrorist attack. You wonder what that event was possibly? You only have to look to another Tom Clancy title for the answer. Rainbow Six: Siege is a squad v squad game that puts players in the shoes of highly trained law enforcement specialists from all across the world. Their goal? To stop a terrorist ring whose unknown, well-funded, far reaching, and most dangerous of all – other players. This PVP centric game will not be won easily because tactics, teamwork, and terrain are never the same in Siege (oh and no respawning either). My only question is when will we see the terrorist character classes; I mean if players are going to be terrorists in the game they might as well know what they’re working with (or at least I would like to know). Anywho Rainbow Six: Siege will the most hardcore squad based game you’ll play to date, which hopefully will stay on its release date window and not until wait til next year like so many other games did last year.

 

 

 

Armada’s E3 picks: Fire Emblem Fates (2016)

 

I love RPGs, I do, but I didn’t always, and because of that some great titles have sliped through the cracks for me. The Fire Emblem series is one of them; I mean I’ve to play them – heck I’ve got the original game on my 3DS right now and do I play it? No. However Fire Emblem will not be ignored and has showcased their latest offering this year: Fire Emblem Fates. Players take on the role as a young royal who’s caught in the middle of two warring kingdoms and must decide which side to side with. Now the catch, like Pokémon, is that the game has two versions of this title: Fire Emblem Fates – Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates – Conquest. The version you get will dictate your character’s allegiance throughout the rest of the story. An odd way to go about a simple choice (good or evil) but Fates also chock full of characters, story, modes, weapons, castle customization options, PVP arenas, street pass goodies & amiibo support. So it would make sense to separate that plot choice into two games to make sure Fire Emblem Fates is a complete game(s) (or they like money – and who doesn’t). Anyway this game is already out in Japan but anywhere else has to wait next year.

 

 

 

Armada’s E3 picks: Mass Effect – Andromeda (2016)

 

Admitted. The endings doesn’t matter now does it?

Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight? – The Joker

Armada’s E3 picks: Battleborn (2015)

 

Gigantic and Battleborn: those two games will be the sleeper hits of the year. I’ve already talked about Gigantic so now it’s Battleborn turn; to start its being developed by Gearbox Software who has done the Borderlands series with their Bazillion of guns. They excel at diverse action and colorful characters, which is why Aliens: Colonial Maries failed so badly because it didn’t play to those strengths. Battleborn won’t have that problem and you can tell right away: from cyborgs, beastmen, samurai vampires, mini-gun wielding giants, outlaws, and even more craziness all converging to the last solar system in the universe. Why? To survive, of course, and to also have an awesome battle royale with (or against) the other big factions in what’s left in the universe; taking a stand from the big evil that ruined the universe in the first. No matter what kind of FPS player you are Battleborn will have you covered; no matter what skills you have Battleborn will test them, you like pimping out your characters – so does Battleborn. It even combines many different genres of gaming that evolves it pass something that’s just a MOBA or a FPS. I’m excite people, honestly. When I heard they weren’t going to do anymore Borderlands for a while, and just focus on Battleborn I was sadden. However as more and more play videos of Battleborn were released and showcase the title’s chops the more and more I was convinced. Now I’m a believer, and I can’t wait to get my turn to become Battleborn.

 

 

 

Armada’s E3 picks: New Nier (TBA)

 

Now when I watched the Square Enix E3 show and saw this trailer it impressed me enough to put it on the list. Not even realizing this was a previous game five years ago under the same name. A story of a father wanting to cure his daughter from a deadly disease, sets off into a decaying world full danger, mystery, androids, and talking, soul taking books. The original Nier didn’t set the world on fire but got more than a few fans, which is why it’s getting a new game now. However, as par of the course, there’s very little info about the new Nier: is it a sequel? Is it a prequel? Is it a remake? We won’t even know more about the game til this fall. Despite that though I’m still willing to give the game a change because those who like this game – really like this game. Also the trailer was really impressive, check it out yourself, it’s all we can do til more info becomes available. Stay tuned!
