E32016 In Review; PC Gaming Show

This is usually the show that I look forward to the least! However this year the show was jam packed with games. In about an hour and a half they introduced about 30 titles. So I am not going to be going over all of them, that is a ton! The show was hosted again by Sean Plott (AKA Day9) who is very entertaining, and did a great job with the show.

If you missed the show you can check out Dropped Frame’s coverage of it here:

Dropped Frames is a gaming talk show hosted by itmeJP, Ezekiel_III, and CohhCarnage, which I like very much. During all of E3 I watched live through Dropped Frames and really appreciated their commentary.

Because the PC Gaming Show was so packed they actually ran over their time, and ran into Ubisoft’s time. Which is great, but  annoying to try and watch everything.

My Favs from the PC Gaming Show:

  • Tyranny Release 2016
    • Play as a Fatebinder, jude & executioner of Kyros’ law, acting under the watchful eye of the Overlords Archon of Justice, Tunon the Adjudicator. Your words shape the lives of thousdands. Will you use that power to bring justice and inspire loyality? Or will you bring fear and cruelty to the beant people of the Tiers?
  • >Observer_  Release TBA
    • Cyberpunk horror game, from the creators of Layers of Fear. I’m in, so in! I don’t play a ton of horror games, not because I get scared but because I don’t get scared. So the fact that I’m interested in playing this says a lot.
  • Mirage: Arcane Warfare Release 2016
    • Obliterate your enemies with powerful magic or silence them with a sword in Mirage: Arcane Warfare, a multiplayer FPS from the creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.  Mirage is a skill-based multiplayer FPS that lets you tear your enemies limb from limb with destructive magic and melee combat. Experiment and find your perfect playstyle between six diverse classes including stealthy assassins, hulking brutes, powerful mages and more. With an unparalleled focus on truly feeling in control of your magic and sword, Mirage demands combat creativity and will challenge you like never before.
  • Dual Universe Releasing TBA
    • The Dual Universe is a gigantic multi-planet world where players are free to invent their collective destiny: civilizations will rise and fall, player-driven events will shape the course of History, because everything you do matters in a persistent single-shard universe. We are pushing the limits of what is technically possible today to open the door to what we believe is the next generation of MMO games. Welcome to Dual Universe! You start in the world, stepping out of your cryosleep tube, ready to take possession of the new gigantic planet where you have just landed. This planet is one among thousands of others, all beautifully generated and ready for you to explore, exploit and conquer. Dual Universe is about true massively multiplayer experience. There are no boundaries, instances, or zones. You can experience real cooperation and competition, forge intergalactic empires or giant cities, gather thousands of players in alliance events and tilt the balance of power with epic battles, or diplomacy.
  • Day of Imfamy
    • Day of Infamy is a total conversion pack for Insurgency. It moves the game to a World War II setting, with new weapons and locations. After downloading the mod from the Workshop, it can be used by joining a server. Select the Day of Infamy playlist in the Multiplayer of Cooperative section, filter the server list with to find one of the supporting servers.

For an hour and a half my brain was on over load with great new games. Some not for me, and some peaking my interest. Not every game is going to appeal to every gamer, that would be craziness if they did. It would also mean we were all exactly the same and where is the fun in that? So this show is getting a 8/10 from me, I was entertained and my brain was on over load most of the time, however no one game or piece of info blew my mind.

Was your brain just as bombarded as mine? Did you like Day 9’s hosting style? Any games your crazy about? What did you rate the showcase? Let me know down in the comments!
