So the fall out from E3 has now ended. We have all seen what the developers like to show off. Overall I would say we came away from E3 as gamers a little bit underwhelmed. Is there hope for the slumping summer box office…hahaha??
Well San Diego Comicon is offering a surprising look at some games coming up. The biggest announcement out of San Diego will be 38 Studios first look at their new game world. It looks like Project Mercury will be shown to the public for the first time. With McFarlane and Salvatore on board how bad can it be? It should be a great announcement and some solid news for MMO fans.
Also Guild Wars 2 is expected to be shown at the show. The news we have seen from GW2 is making everyone look twice. So far it has been great and seems to be in line with fan expectations.
Star Wars: The Old Republic will be on hand, as will Age of Conan, and of course all of the super hero MMOs: DC Universe, City of Heroes, and Marvel Super Hero Squad.
San Diego is coming back with a vengence on games. Last year there were almost no games on the flor or schedule. This year it seems like a few more are coming to the front lines.
As the summer months continue we have shows like Dragon Con, Gen Con, GamesCon Europe, and PAX to look forward too.While most of the announcements have already been made there are still a few surprises on the plate for us fans.
If anyone will be at these shows…definitely look for playable demos. I know many games are expected to be playable at PAX…see you there !
