Best of E3 2018

Since E3 has ended, it’s given me some time to contemplate the games I found that stood out to me the most. It was tough. We were treated to so many announcements, but there were some definitive trailers that have caught my eye.

Set within the glorious Greece timeline, we’re introduced to familiar but fresh combat systems and flexibility with a whole new twist on our main character and the overall development they acquire from the trailer.

Created by the fantastic Hideo Kojima and staring the amazing yet gruff star Norman Reedus, we finally have news on Death Stranding! Shown to be a classic exploration and discovery game, the trailer from E3 2018 quickly shows us just how quickly a huge group of antagonists will change the course of the world by taking control of the protagonist.

Another fantastic edition to the already great franchise brings us what seems to be a cool combination of Fire Emblem Heroes‘ open world style fighting with the three separate paths used in Fire Emblem Fates. With massive armies shown right from the get-go, I can see it’s going to be very story driven.

One of the most beloved series from famous director Tetsuya Nomura, we were finally graced with an official release date for, you guessed it! Kingdom Hearts 3. I can personally say that I’m absolutely overjoyed to see just how far the series has come from its start in 2002. With the information given to us from the most recent trailers and interviews, this game is shaping up to be at least 90 hours long with a fantastic ending to the Xehanort Saga.

Coming back into the scene on September 7th of this year is everyone’s favorite webslinger with a new suit and an even newer story. Strap yourselves in because with this new Spidey, your actions will definitely have higher repercussions.

Sable: Beautiful Exploration Game

Sable deviates from the average modern fighting game. Instead, this Indie game is an open-world desert exploration game, as explained by the core development team. This is a game about solitude and exploration.

A girl leaves her home to explore the world and learns about its culture and history. Sable; the main character of the game, explores this desert ridden with monumental architecture and fallen space ships.

According to Greg Kythreotis, their art style is heavily influenced by French and Belgian comics, as well as Japanese animation and Studio Ghibli. Paired with Japanese Breakfast’s soundtrack, this game looks extremely promising.

As of this moment, there is no confirmed release date but it’s looking like this game will be releasing sometime in 2019. To learn more about this game check out their website. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for the latest news @tehlunchboxpub!

Have you ever wanted to live life as a shark and eat every living thing on the Gulf Coast?

Me neither, but this game definitely peaked my interest. Blindside created this single player action RPG where you play as a giant Bull Shark and terrorize tourists by ripping through them one limb at a time.

This exciting game allows you to customize your personal man-eating shark and gives you the ability to allocate points to your shark skill-tree. It has a full single player campaign and everything!

One of the first games the PC Gaming Show starts off with is Mavericks Proving Grounds, which hops onto the hype train of battle royale-esque games that have been coming out as of late. One of the few things that make this game stand out is the fact that 999 other players will be fighting to the death for the number one spot!

Like PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS–PUBG for short–the round starts off as the player leaps from heights and lands on the map to collect loot and slay their fellow opponents.

James Thompson, also known as the CEO of Automaton Games, says that this game is a last man standing type of game and it’s all about death. He says that the environment caters to helping the player annihilate adversaries.

Sign up for their beta testing before June 17th at mavericks.gg/closed-beta and you can follow them on Twitter @playmavericks. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for the latest news @tehlunchboxpub!
