E3 2017 to be Made Available to The Public

 

E3 2017

 

E3, the Electronic Gaming Expo of the year has been made available to the public for the first time since it’s beginning. This is going to make for an interesting show floor, since it won’t be catering to industry or press only.  The gamers will be there and they will be heard.

E3 2017 is June 13-15 this year, while briefings will begin Sunday June 11.

Pricing for the tickets were $149.00 for the first 1,000 people.  After that it bumped up to $249.  This is a decent price for attendance to this exclusive event.

Many details of the show haven’t been disclosed to us yet. We do know EA will be there, inside and usually outside too.  This I find to be one of the best parts of E3.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet and will be in the LA area, swing over to the E3 website.

Lego Star Wars the Force Awakens is Here

LEGO-Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens

Tonight if you pre-order and download games, within just a few minutes you will be able to play Lego Star Wars Force Awakens on your PS4 or XBOX One.  Both are available to download and play at midnight EST, or 9pm PST.  I happen to be in California, so it’s 9pm for me!

I did play the demo today, it surprisingly fun.  I find some Lego games to be confusing, but not this one.  It gripped me and brought me right in to the game with familiar characters that I know and love.  A great things also is that many of the main characters are voiced by the actors in the films.  I think that is pretty cool.  With 200 characters, it’s totally going to be worth it.  I purchased the deluxe edition.  It was a mere $10.00 more and I figure I will want them later so might as well get them now.

I know we had Battlefront come out last year, but that game for me just didn’t have the dynamics in a game of Star Wars that I needed.  Lego definitely does.

BB-8 is playable, which adds to the fun!

Who is going to be playing tonight?

 

Call of Duty Black Ops III Awakening

We Playstation 4 owners have gotten the Awakening DLC maps for our Call of Duty Black Ops III.  I really like the maps, they seem to bring back old memories.  Skyjacked, from a previous COD, is especially fun for me.  However I do enjoy the new maps that we’ve never played.

Splash is an especially fun map to play.  It’s a old abandoned waterpark, and yes, while we have played in old amusement parks, this one is kinda cool.  It’s not tight and you can spread out across the map.  Swimming is especially helpful and the ability to shoot under water is great.

I’ve always been a Xbox player due solely to the fact that I would get the maps early.  Now, surprisingly that PS4 gets them a month earlier its a nice incentive to use my Playstation some more.

I look forward to the next waves of DLC.  It keeps the game fun to play.  It’s all a matter of opinion, some don’t like the series.  I do.
