My E3 2017 Top 5 !

A ton of new games have been announced/shown on E3 and I’m going to list my personal favorites. Let’s do this!

1.God Of War : Be A Warrior

We got some gameplay footage of the new God of War game and it looks amazing! I’m already looking forward to kill that giant snake thing we see at the end of the trailer.

2. Spider-Man!

An exclusive Spider-Man game for the PS4 will always interest me especially one that looks as good as this one. The combat reminds me a lot of the Batman Arkham games and that’s a good thing; I really love the timing based combat. A good Spider-Man off course has good web slinging and this game seems to deliver on that front; the web slinging looks fun and solid. The worst part of this game is its release date: 2018. Bummer!

3. Call of Duty WII Multiplayer trailer!

I haven’t been excited for a new COD game since Black Ops but this one put me right back on the hype train. I’m skeptical that the multiplayer will look this good and fluid but we shall see. The trailer didn’t show any exuberant skins on the weapons and I hope that this is also the case for the final game. I don’t want to play a World War 2 shooter with a pink MP40.

4. Skull and Bones

My favorite Assassins Creed game is Black Flag so you can see why I’m excited for this game. I’d love a good online pirate game but it is still Ubisoft so I’m skeptical; how are the servers going to be ? What about the balance ? I’m going to try to get access to the beta to see how the game plays but the trailer does look good.

5. A Way Out

2 brothers breaking out of jail might not sound like the most interesting premise ever but what is interesting is the fact that it is co-op. I love a good co-op game and this might be a very good one!

Honorable mentions:

  • Wolfenstein II The New Colossus
  • Marvel vs Capcom Infinite (the gameplay looks great!)
  • Xbox One X
  • Need for Speed Payback
  • Metro Exodus

Call of Duty: WWII Reveal Trailer!

First thoughts: I’m happy that Call of Duty returns to their roots; I wasn’t a huge fan of the newer installments because of the ‘sci-fi’ setting. The trailer doesn’t really show us much (besides that we are going to relive our Medal of Honor Frontline days with the D-Day mission) but I’m hopeful. I just hope they don’t screw up the multiplayer by adding a bunch of things that don’t belong in a World War 2 shooter.

Top 5 Collector’s Editions!

In the last ‘weekly pick-ups’ I talked about how much I love collector’s editions and I thought to myself; why not make a top 5 of my favorite collector’s editions off all time? I did some research and made a top 5. Let me know what you think about my top 5 in the comments!

Bioshock

What’s in the box?

  • 6 inch Big Daddy figure
  • Making of DVD and Soundtrack
  • The game in a steelcase

The original Bioshock is one of my favorite fps games of all time. The setting, the story; it’s just great. The collector’s edition of this game was equally great because of the superb Big Daddy statue. People are asking crazy money for this now on eBay/Amazon so if you own this; great investment!

Batman:Arkham Origins

What’s in the box?

  • 30 cm figurine of Batman and The Joker
  • Steelcase
  • Artbook
  • Assassins dossier pack
  • 3 pieces of DLC

I’m a huge Batman fan but I didn’t buy this on release even though I thought that the figure looked incredible.  The price was just a bit too high on release so I waited for it to come down a bit and it took quite some time for the price to drop. I bought this last year for the PS3 for €50 (new) which is an amazing deal! The US version had a different collector’s edition which had a blu-ray and a different figure but I’m still very happy with mine.

Injustice Gods Among Us

What’s in the box?

  • 23 cm figure of Wonder Woman fighting Batman
  • An Injustice comic book
  • Steelcase
  • 3 DLC Skins

The DC trend continues with Injustice; a great fighting game that came out in 2013. The collector’s edition has a really nice looking statue of Wonder Woman fighting Batman. I still kick myself in the head for this one because I could have owned this for €40 but I passed up on it because, at the time, I didn’t own a PS3. We all make mistakes sometimes.

2)

Assassin’s Creed III

What’s in the box?

  • A 24-cm figurine of Connor
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templar’s during the American Revolution
  • A steelbook case featuring art by award-winning comic artist Alex Ross
  • Exclusive lithograph
  • Single-Player Mission: Lost Mayan Ruins (DLC)
  • Single-Player Mission: Ghost of War (DLC)
  • Sawtooth Sword (DLC)
  • Obwandiyag’s War Club (DLC)
  • The Sharpshooter Multiplayer Package: Including 1 new Animi Avatar, The Sharpshooter, 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, 1 special Picture and the Title of “The Jester” (DLC)

Ubisoft is known for their great collector’s edition (and for buggy games on release) and this one is my favorite. The figurine looks great and you get a whole lot of extras with it! I pre-ordered this one for the Xbox 360 but then my Xbox broke and I sold it off to a friend. What a shame.

Call of Duty: Black ops 3

What’s in the box?

  • Juggernog Mini-Fridge
  • Perk-A-Cola Coaster Set With Custom Tin
  • Season Pass
  • Limited Edition Specialist Concept Art Cards
  • The Giant Zombies Bonus Map
  • Collectible Steelbook™
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Weaponized 115
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Cyborg
  • Official Call Of Duty: Black Ops III Soundtrack
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Black Ops 3 Bonus Pack

This my favorite collector’s edition of all time! The fridge is just super cool and the fact that you get the season pass with it is a great bonus.  It was pretty expensive on release (and even more expensive now) but I don’t give up the hope that I’ll find one for a decent price in the wild!
