Lgndary Thoughts - E3 Hopes and Dreams


Can you believe that E3 2017 is less than a month away? I can, due to the hype that is starting to build pretty quick! I thought I’d post a more relaxed thought this week where we can discuss not what we think will be at E3, but what we hope will be there. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

Medievil - With all the talk of old games getting resurrected, I am always sad to see that Medievil isn’t mentioned as much as it should be, as it would be the perfect game to breath new life into. And I don't mean a remaster. This might seem far-fetched, but hear me out. Medievil needs to be brought back as a casual, fun type of souls game. I honestly think it would be perfect for it. I’m not saying that they have to use every element of a souls game, just enough for it to fit in with the genre. And I would be very interested to see a type of souls game for people that are more fun oriented, as opposed to challenge oriented. 

Spyro Trilogy - While I am very happy for fans of Crash Bandicoot, I can't say that I am particularly excited for the N.sane trilogy. I played the games when I was a kid, but I honestly don't remember them too fondly. Spyro, however, is a completely different story. That is why Sony should do everything they can to give it the same treatment that Crash received. I even think a remastered Spyro trilogy would be a lot more popular than Crash’s. Spyro is the better game after all!

Dualshock 4 Pro - I still think it is crazy that this doesn't exist yet. The only reason I can imagine Sony not producing one is because it would be “copying” Microsoft. But that is no excuse to not go forward with a great idea. And if they are afraid of being perceived as copy cats, they can always take steps to distance themselves from the Xbox Pro Controller. Maybe it could still be made with premium materials but without the ability to swap parts. This would differentiate it between the Xbox controller, while also bringing the price down. But I honestly don't care how they do it, I just want a premium Dualshock.

Dreams - For those that don't know this, Dreams was actually one of the very first PS4 games ever announced. It was revealed before we even saw the PS4 itself. So the fact that we still know almost nothing about this game is unbelievable. On the upside, however, I do feel that this E3 will finally be the one where we get our first real look at the game. And personally, I am hoping for a 3D LittleBigPlanet. LittleBigPlanet was a side scrolling platformer that put a huge amount of emphasis on creating and sharing. I would love if Dreams took that same concept, but made it a 3D platformer instead. We already know that players will be able to create things in a 3D space, so I don't think Dreams turning out to be a 3D platformer would be too much of a stretch. Still though, I’m not getting my hopes too high for this. I think a 3D LittleBigPlanet might sound too good to be true. 

E3 is right around the corner, and I’m starting to get more excited than I have for Playstation in a long time. These are just a few of the things I am hoping to see at this year's event, but now I want to hear from you! Remember, these are not predictions. So go crazy with what you hope to see! Have a good weekend everyone!

Well for starters, a big thing I'm hoping for is an announcement from Sucker Punch, in terms of whatever they're working on. Whether it be a new Infamous, another Sly, or something completely new, I just want to see what they've been up to. Honestly, I would want a new Infamous because Second Son was so awesome! Granted the last act of the story was kind of meh, I still really enjoyed it. So either a sequel to that or a new Infamous game with a different protagonist would be cool.

Dissidia Final Fantasy would be another thing I would want. The arcade version has been out for a while now in Japan so I feel it's about time for it to come PS4.

This last one is a long shot but I still hope for it. And that is a remaster of Knights of the Old Republic I and II. They wouldn't even have to update the graphics an insane amount. All I want is for those games to be playable on console. I have the first one on my phone, but it just doesn't feel as good as I know it would be with a controller.

I would love a sequel to Second Son. I loved that game and thought it was so much better than the first two games in the series. I know a lot of people disagree with that, but Delsin should at least be given the chance to grow.

And Dissidia actually has a pretty high chance of being announced at E3. We know they have said it is coming to the PS4 eventually, so all that is left now is to make an official announcement. Hopefully we see that in a few weeks!
