I’m going to provide the links to the trailers and give my opinions on the games.


  • Halo Infinite

My opinion: Halo Infinite needs to be good after a rather disappointing Halo 5. I am looking forward to it but we need to see more of it.


  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps

My opinion: I have Ori and the Blind Forest but I have yet to play it. The game looks amazing thanks to its lovely art style. I need to complete the first game before I play this one.


  • Sekiro – Shadows Die Twice

My opinion: From Software’s new game looks amazing. I need it now. I can’t wait to see more and to play it.


  • Fallout 76

My opinion: I am more hyped for Fallout 76 now. This trailer and what Todd Howard said got me more excited. Roll on Bethesda’s E3 conference.


  • The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

My opinion: It looks good and I have no doubt that its story will be good give that it is being made by Life is Strange developer DONTNOD. I haven’t played Life is Strange yet (I feel like I am the only who hasn’t) but this game got me interested.


  • Crackdown 3

My opinion: It looks good, really good but I can’t shake the feeling that it will get delayed yet again. I hope that this is not the case. Prove me wrong Microsoft.


  • NieR: Automata

My opinion: Xbox owners, get this and experience something special. It is a weird yet truly wonderful game.


  • Metro Exodus

My opinion: It looks stunning and I want to play it now. The first two Metro games were brilliant experiences that got me reading the books that these games are based on. I can’t wait for Metro Exodus.


  • Kingdom Hearts III

My opinion: Frozen is in Kingdom Hearts III which is brilliant. They showed of more of the story and for the first time, Gummi Ship gameplay. This trailer was great. Give me more. I need more. Hurry up January 29, 2019.


  • Sea of Thieves

My opinion: It got off to a rocky start but it looks like it is finding its feet. I have yet to play it but I hope Rare continue to support the title.


  • Battlefield V

My opinion: I still need to see more of Battlefield V. I won’t be able to get it until next year as Red Dead Redemption 2 will consume my life.


  • Forza Horizon 4

My opinion: I love the Forza Horizon series and the fourth instalment looks amazing. It’s also set in the UK which is a big plus.


  • We Happy Few

My opinion: It looks weird but incredibly cool. It has a very unsettling atmosphere which I am totally digging.


  • Player Unknown Battlegrounds

My opinion: I am not a fan of Battle Royale games but they are very popular.


  • Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

My opinion: I never played Tales of Vesperia and it looks good. I will get the game at some point.


  • The Division 2

My opinion: I couldn’t get into the first Division game and I need to see more of this before I am won over. I know some of my friends are very happy about The Division 2. I hope it does well.


  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider

My opinion: Shadow of the Tomb Raider looks great but it is coming out in a really hectic time. I hope it does well. I will more than likely still be playing Dragon Quest XI.


  • Session

My opinion: It’s a new skateboarding game and I am excited for this. Hopefully this can fill the void as we are not getting a new Skate or Tony Hawks game anytime soon.


  • Devil May Cry 5

My opinion: It is finally here. Devil May Cry 5 is here. Nero is back, Dante is back. Let’s go. The game is slated for Spring 2019 which is fantastic and is going to have three playable characters.


  • Cuphead DLC

My opinion: More Cuphead is good. Give me more Cuphead content until the day I drop dead. I love Cuphead and I am looking forward to the DLC.


  • Tunic

My opinion: This is a cute and cool looking indie game and I really like the look of it. I hope we see more of it soon.


  • Jump Force

My opinion: A new fighting game by Bandai Namco that features characters from multiple anime series? I am interested.


  • Dying Light 2

My opinion: Dying Light was a brilliant game that took me by surprise. I thought it would be Dead Island with parkour but I was very wrong. I can’t wait until we see more of Dying Light 2.


  • Battletoads

My opinion: This was unexpected. I honestly don’t know what else I can say. This was completely unexpected.


  • Just Cause 4

My opinion: Rico is back and we have another playground to mess around in. I am happy, I can cause mayhem and chaos in the most stylish way.


  • Gears of War 5

My opinion: Gears of War is one of my favourite Xbox exclusives and Gears 4 was a fantastic start to the new Gears trilogy on Xbox One. I can’t wait for Gears of War 5, especially after the ending of Gears of War 4.


  • Cyberpunk 2077

My opinion: Our first look at Cyberpunk 2077 was a good one. It looks very nice and its art style is pleasing to the eye. I need to see more of it, hopefully we won’t have to wait long.
