E3 2014 has been pretty exciting for gamers so far!

By: Anthony Garreffa | Posted: Jun 12, 2014 @ 0:07 CDT

I'm a black hole of technology and games - I love them all. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Computex in Taipei this year, but there was nothing much that really stood out and hit me in the face saying "look at me, play with me, you want to take me home!"




I'm now sitting back in Australia at home, capturing in a bunch of E3 2014 content and writing up a bunch of news on the various games and tech shown off at the show. We've seen some truly incredible things at E3 this year, something I didn't think would happen - a few of the stand out things for me would be Alien: Isolation - which looks absolutely pants-wettingly beautiful. Creative Assembly has just announced that it will built Oculus Rift support into the game, something that has me excited beyond belief.


The Division - which is something I've had my eyes on for quite some time looks delicious, as always. The four-player cooperative play is going to have me having a bunch of fun in that game, and it is hitting next-gen consoles and PCs only - something I love to hear.


The Wii U has seen some love, with some massive sales thanks Mario Kart 8 - but we're also hearing about a new Zelda game, Mario vs. Donkey Kong (working title) and much more. I think we're going to see a much better Nintendo in 2015, a company that has its crap together, ready to take on the lukewarm next-gen consoles from Microsoft and Sony.


Oculus VR is at the top of its game at E3 - but it is something you need to see in person, and not read about. But, it's great to see the now Facebook-owned VR startup working with AAA developers, and getting more and more talent jump on-board the limitless VR train.


We've seen much more on the next-gen Assassin's Creed: Unity, a new Rainbow Six: Siege title announced, and the first handful of minutes from the upcoming sure-fire-hit Far Cry 4.
