It’s been nearly 2 weeks since E3 but with assessments im only finding time now so here it goes
Rev3 Games did a great coverage on the Ps4 but heres the low down The Ps4 was shown off its $399 or $100 cheaper then the Xbox One, they showed off new games and I will cover those later. Click HERE for the Rev3 coverage. As with all consoles I dont belve that we here at Kokstars will get one straight away because we are primarily PC gamers but it would be great to see one or both some time in the future.
There are a tone of new trailers that came with E3 so here is my top 10 it was a very hard choice from all of E3 there are a few games like kingdom hearts that look cool but im not excited because i didn’t play the originals. Please dont kill me.
#10 Wolfenstein The new order
This game looks great and from what I’ve heard its a kick back to old style shooters. You can see it HERE
#9 Trials Fusion
This announcement trailer features both of the upcoming Trials games one of Console and one on iOS it looks great and I know that Shaun loves Trials Evolution. You can see it HERE
#8 The Order 1886
Now did I see this anywhere before E3…. No but it is being developed by santa Monica studios and what is it about who knows but it looks like a 4 player Co-op game with werewolves or zombies or vampires i dont know but people have fancy names like galahan so awesome im in. Check it HERE
#7 Batman Arkham Origins

Well they showed off the same trailer as they did before but its great all top secretie and classified shiz so once again HERE
#5 The Crew
I’ve been skeptical since Test drive unlimited 2 about open world multiplayer drivers but if Ivory tower get it right The Crew will be a big hit at Kokstars. Check out the Gameplay HERE
#4 The Division
Ok now the last Tom Clancy ghost recon was a let down but this looks amazing hopefully its execution will be as good as the presentation it is multiplayer so those voices are people not voice actors check it HERE. But if you are confused about the story HERE

So what was your number 1 at E3
Now yes the xbox was reviled today and yes its all very exciting but shaun has covered all that needs to be said about the actual console and now its time for those lovely exclusives.
microsoft studios will be publishing 15+games just for the Xbox one
1. we have Forza Motorsport 5 which looks absolutely awesome as it features a mclaren P1 and a and its older brother the F1 racing around what looks to be Italy in a fast and epic way but how dare they scratch the P1
you can see it HERE
2. we have a game which i have never heard of called Quantum break now the trailer is a bit confusing but im going to take a shot in saying its a cop game where the hero can slowdown time to analyse the crime of rewind time or something like that.
You can see it HERE
now we havent heard anything about the other 13+ games that will be released but I will keep you guys up to date
the following games are not exclusives but are now on the list for the Xbox One
-Assassins Creed 4
now we move along to well more trailers
Batman Arkham Origins Full trailer
Now i do love me my comic books and it goes without saying i love batman so here is the extended trailer from the first teaser that we saw. It looks better every time and we see more then just batman and deathstroke so i have kinda put together what I think its going to be Black mask has put either a bounty on batman’s head or hes hired mercenaries to kill hime either way m going to say that this isn’t the last time we see deathstroke and deadshot. There is a little hint that we may run into a fellow hero maybe Green Arrow…?
You can see it HERE
A supposedly 3D RTS revolutioniser showed off a story for baserunner which is a 6 wheeled moster that looks like it conquer the dakar with no issues theses mosters were the building point for a war and is i think either a mobile base or the work horse that we build from gathering and mining resources but it looks pretty and i hope its awesome cos I love space stuff and it will be great to have a RTS that I wont be swamped by a south korean.
You can see it HERE
Now I dont know much about this game but its a reboot of a 1997 game developed by Flying wild hog but it eliminated the multi-player aspects and will avoid racial stereotyping and misogyn. but the teaser is a bit mysterious other then the slaughter of some gards and the japanese theme.
You can see it HERE
Call of Duty Ghosts
Great another COD game im no fan of the COD series and its not something I hide, when i see some 12 year old wearing a COD shirt I always just want to burn it but they seem to have struck gold in the repetition of gameplay and half arising a story on it as well but they may have actually put some effort in to this one oh wait ive heard the name ghosts some where…. where was it umm…. oh thats right Ghost Recon so
you can see the trailer HERE if you want…. to be lame. And loose all respect from me.
More Batman stuff
At the Dallas Comic-Con we found out the guy who does the Ezio voice will be voicing Bats.
But this is not the big news, BatmanNews.com screenshot a tweet from Conroy stated
WHAAAAAAAAA….. obviously he wasent supposed to let the Bat out of the bag but now we know that there is another Arkham game in development and we got our batman back probably by the real Arkham developers, Rocksteady Studios it was unthinkable that the rest of the Arkham games would be developed by anyone other then Rocksteady. Thank you Kevin you have given us all hope again
We got some screen shots that reveal more characters its more batman being all sneaky and rape-e and you can see them on the inside gaming flickr HERE
Here’s your weekly round up of gaming news.
2K just announced that the long awaited XCOM shooter is on its way they had this to say
“In the coming days the world will get a fresh look at the long-awaited squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin. Announced back in 2010, the game has undergone an evolution since we last showed it to you at E3 2011. Firaxis’ critically acclaimed turn-based strategy title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, has reignited the classic franchise and we feel that the time is right to deliver a new experience within the world of XCOM.
The creative development of this game has been a collaborative process of discovery and iteration. 2K’s culture allows our studios the freedom to refine their visions, to explore new ideas, and to deliver the best possible experiences for players. Through this exploration, 2K Marin has refined their vision, and as a result the game has evolved into a high-stakes narrative experience imbued with core XCOM concepts.”
it looks pretty clear that its still going to be about shooting aliens. Even with mixed feelings from the fans over the past years i really hope that its a success.
Activision shows of TMNT game
Soon Red-Fly will be releasing the TMNT game for XBLA,PSN and PC called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the shadows and you can see the trailer HERE. This video shows off the fight style and i think it looks like a co-op batman Arkham city but even though the game play was pretty cool and seems like it will be lots of fun.
Batman Arkham Origins Multiplayer?
One of my favorite upcoming games might be giving what i personally have been waiting for so team up fighting so hopefully the recent news from WB rumoured to have some multiplayer component.
And Kotaku sites that two differences sources who say that there will be a multiplayer component.
so now theres a rumour what kind of multiplayer dream do you have for Batman i would love a secondary campaign for coop just as long as the single player but double the fun. What do you want?
Ratchet & Clank Movie for 2015
A few days ago Sony and insomniac games announced a film based on the Ratchet & Clank game heading to cinemas in 2015 in conjunction with Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment.
And you can watch it HERE.
T.J. fixman the man who has written the recent games he has given a statement
“Over the last decade, the Ratchet & Clank franchise has grown from a few small planets into a sprawling universe full of colorful characters and storylines. It’s grown as a result of the studio growing, and we’ve learned a lot along the way about what makes these characters tick. With the movie, we have the opportunity to go back to the duo’s origins and use our knowledge to create a deeper, more meaningful story. In a lot of ways we’re reimagining our own work while keeping the franchise DNA intact. This lets us answer all the fans’ questions and theories in a big, cinematic way.”
the voices of Ratchet, Clank and Qwark will be provided by James A. Taylor, David Kaye, and Jim Ward respectively the teaser looks pretty fun and if anything else fans of the series should be happy.
Saints Row Four Pre-Order Shtuff
Now if you have read my previous posts you will know that i loved Saints Row The Third so i would love the next edition but sadly i wont be able to get the pre order DLC. The Commander in Chief edition will be able for people who pre order the game before August 20th.
So what do you get with this CiC package, well you get a Screaming Eagle Jet that shoots rockets out of its talons the ‘MERICA weapon which looks insane packing flamethrowers shotguns and rocket launcher last you get the uncle sam suit.
