Lawbreakers looks sweet!

Cliff Bleszinski and Boss Key Productions’ debut game, Lawbreakers, revealed a new trailer yesterday and it’s began to generate a lot of hype around the game. I hadn’t heard a lot about the game previously (though I did get a Lawbreakers hat in a Loot Crate awhile back) and the trailer was my first time seeing the game. I’m already sold. I can’t stop watching the trailer, and I’m finding myself already salivating over the game.

Lawbreakers will cost just $29.99 when it releases later this year (I assume we’ll get a date at E3) on PS4 and PC. If the price seems too good to be true, it’s worth noting that there will be no season pass, and all future updates will be free. There will be a loot box system in place, but all items will be purely cosmetic.

If you want a better look at how the game will play, there are several mode tutorials on Lawbreaker’s YouTube channel which show you how some of the game modes will work.

I can’t wait to see more at E3, and look forward to what might become 2017’s Overwatch.

Bethesda’s epic E3

Fallout-4-release-date-571788

I just watched Bethesda’s E3 showcase from last night and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. The DOOM gameplay looked great and I’m all of a sudden excited to play it even though I’ve never been huge into the franchise. The guns, combat animations and environments just looked downright awesome and I can’t wait to shoot and chainsaw my way through that world.

The Elder Scrolls card game took me by surprise, but given the popularity of Hearthstone I can see how they’d want to try to cash in. I’m not so sure it’d be successful, as Hearthstone does what it does so well I don’t think there’s room for another fantasy card collecting game.

The Dishonored 2 trailer was pretty neat, and I especially like that they showcased the female character. I think it would have been better to make the game focus solely on the female protagonist, but giving the player the choice to play as either isn’t so bad.

The Fallout 4 coverage at the end was mindblowingly awesome! Everything they showed blew me away, and I especially like the way the game opens. Giving the option to play as either a male or female character again is pretty nice and having a voiced main character will certainly be interesting.

The mobile game seems pretty cool and I’m going to try to check it out later today. The Pip Boy companion app is also a neat idea, but the best part of the entire showcase was the November 2015 release date! Unfortunately I’ll be deployed this Fall, so I won’t be getting my hands on Fallout 4 until next summer.

E3…meh

A lot of people are all excited about E3 right now, but I’m not one of them. It just seems like one big commercial these days. Nothing all that amazing. I read a quick summary of Microsoft’s conference or whatever you want to call it, and the Xbox SmartGlass idea sounds nice. Otherwise there’s Halo 4, Gears of War and Kinect stuff. Who would’ve ever imagined? Totally breathtaking developments, huh? I mean Halo 4, wow, totally surprised.

Seriously though, everything is just some sequel that we already knew about forever. And you really expect me to use a Kinect to say “Hike” in Madden or “Kick the ball” in FIFA….Really? What are you smoking Microsoft, what’s the point?

That is all.
