TTDILA's E3 Games Lookout List

You have your Halos and Uncharted 4 and I'm sure someone will write an article about what toast they we're eating while playing the games. Here will cover all that and more without the needless waste on what was going into our mouths.

-The Witness

The PS4 has been out for a while and still no The Witness from the creator of indie darling of time travel Braid.

Now with some real money backing it how will you solve puzzles on a deserted island? In a story sense we wonder how good it is if someone left all these puzzles on island for you to solve? Can the game get dark? Let's hope!

-Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

What a great title, ehh. Sonic Boom's new look and new direction for our favorite hedgehog has been met with a lot of fan disappointment. Previews of the game online have had good responses of those who've played it. The newest Sonic game for Wii U has Sonic and friends teaming up to take down Lyric, a snake with a robotic body. You can play as not just Sonic, but Tails, Knuckles, Amy and a new friend Stick. Each with their own moves. This seems like a big push to match the upcoming CGI cartoon. The style is going to have to grow on us.

-Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd

Something I need to make fun of in a podcast right away. These Japanese crazy button mashing rhythm games are nothing if not crazy visuals to make fun of and laugh at when seeing friends trying to master.

- Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS

For Wii U and 3DS the brilliant basher of beloved Nintendo characters is finally coming out this year. We hope to see a larger rundown of even more fighters to take to battle. What new stages will be added? What new moves can we pull off? How bizarre will the main story be if there is one?

The Nintendo GameCube Controller Adaptor for the Wii U brought a smile to many veterans of the series. Now there's nothing they can companion about if they don't win.

Here's hoping they have a Mario Kart 8 level and maybe Shovel Knight making it into the roster. Mega Man will probably be our most played with character. The Blue Bomber is going to take you out!

-Nintendo General

We finally get those toys promised when the Wii U first came out. It's been years and finally we'll be getting Nintendo toys to play games with our Wii U they can rest on the Wii U pad or on a specail sensor pick for the 3DS. Either way Nintendo will making money on toys.

A 90-minute presentation for a new game for 3DS, I don't know if that's bad or good. Nintendo tried selling Nintendoland three years ago as the best game for the Wii U, it's not.


The game that's suppose to rock Xbox One's world with the huge over linking multiplayer story with sci-fi/fantasy elements from the people who gave us the first Halo. Let's see what it can do, if it ever comes out.

-Arkham Knight

Batman returns to the street of Gotham with a playable Bat mobile. From the team that made the good games in the series this might be the most expansive Batman game yet with it being five times as big as Arkham City. Cry all Batman fans, to finish the game proper it's not coming out until 2015. 

New features include Fear Takedown that has Batman taking down up to three foes if he goes undetected with time delays on your side for each concurrent takedown. New to Batman's attacks are using his surrounding to take down foes and smashing them with weapons that were once shoved in his face. Batman can beat people with a baseball bat now. Is there anything more American?

The "newly" created villain name Arkham night could be considered by fans of the comic book series as Azrael. Azrael took the mantle of Batman after Bane broke his back in the comics. Azrael didn't stick to Batman's heroic no kill policy and wore a suit of hi-tech armor looking liking Batman. Why Geoff Johns and Jim Lee are trying to take credit for an already conceived character goes deep into why DC Comics has suffered with them helm for the for some time

-Project Morhpeus

Sony says it has better virtual reality gear. It better show if off with a game and some sort of line-up if wants to stick to that claim.

-Oculus Rift

The Rift needs to back itself up too with still no games to market because the equipment hasn't come down from being developer only so far. There's no market for games on it yet, because they're still being developed and it's not commercially available. It be nice to hear any plans for the device.

Venture Beat has a story on how it'll be used for sex, stay classy Venture Beat.

-Mortal Kombat X

Announced a little bit before E3, Mortal Kombat X, the newest game in the series, never looked better. It's someone's job-and I'm sure-to make pain and bone crunches look as disturbing as possible. Announcements over who made the cut and will be cut in the game are coming to E3.

-Star Wars: Battlefront

We'll finally see something more than a foot of a giant robotic dog.

-Will Disney Interactive show anything Beyond Disney Infinity?

Probably not, since that's the only game they make now. Disney's making money on it and not caring  much about anything else. Blaming the market as unprofitable and not the management and direction of their game company Disney needs to show new leadership and understanding to make both fun and profitable games. Is the racer Sugar Rush out of the question from Wreck-It Ralph, probably as Disney doesn't care.
