Halo 5 was a double-edge sword; Amazing multiplayer, atrocious campaign pretty much sums it up. Fans were more than vocal about their displeasure of the mediocre campaign, an aspect of Halo that has been always lauded previous entries. Is 343 Industries answering their call with Halo Infinite?
Hard to tell but it seems the team is taking a “back to basics” approach with this entry. Running real time on their touted Slipspace Engine, the demo boasted lush vibrant graphics, with familiar wildlife and vistas that would make any Halo fan feel at home. The demonstration trailer looked absolutely gorgeous and has piqued my interest in what Halo Infinite has in store for us…whenever it’s supposed to drop. Rumor has it, it may be next gen. Bad move, save Halo now!
Predictions just off the trailer: This game will probably have an open world. Judging from the strong focus on the creatures and landscapes and also the word Infinite may imply a Halo game with scale we haven’t seen before. It also seems to harken the atmosphere from the first Halo game? Prequel perhaps?

4. Resident Evil 2 (Playstation 4, Xbox One)
There isn’t much on this remake set for release January 2019 but the anticipation for it is immense. Judging by a few snippets of footage, this remake may be in the same vein as the style popularized by Resident Evil 4.
Just over the horizon, this one looks to be not just a nostalgia trip but an all new ride.
3. Spider-Man (Playstation 4)
I usually avoid comparing games if I can but from the Spider-Man‘s gameplay and presentation it seems Insomniac Games is doing to Spider-Man what Rocksteady did for Batman. The prison scenes are just so remineant of Arkham Asylum and like Batman, Spider-Man is taking down a ton full of prisoners in signature fashion. Luckily, because of prior videos we know there’s a lot more to this game such as complete open world of New York City.
Maybe it’s The Amazing Spider-Man sequel we were robbed of (Andrew Garfield was an amazing Spider-Man!) I digress.
The graphics are highly-impressive. Details, silky animation, Spider-man’s style and enough bad guys to dine on knuckle sandwiches for days. I cannot be more excited to play this game.
Dropping September 2018, this looks to be the Spider-Man game of our dreams.

2. Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise (Playstation 4)
|You won’t find a malier game this generation.|
Though long, the presentation was geniusly jaw-dropping.
“Everyone is Here!” is the entire takeaway from the E3 reveal. Every. Smash. Fighter. Ever. I mean what else can I say? I have no doubt that this game will place the most mileage on my Switch.
The presentation was very informative to watch, it gave you everything you needed to know and still left you wanting to know more. Masahiro Sakurai gave us a bit of insight in new features and character changes. With every character from all entries and the possibility of future DLC characters, this game will be more stuffed than a turkey at a Black Thanksgiving dinner.
The Smash to smash all Smashes, hits stores holiday 2019.
