So how did the big games fare at the expo? Was it all the same over and over again or were there any gems to be found? Read on and see if the wait for Tomb Raider, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and the other big ones are worth it.

With just a couple of days to go until the Eurogamer Expo 2012, I have written down my wish list of things I hope to find on the show floor.
Remember Me is a game set in the future, where memories and brain-implants are for sale. Based on what little I know this far the game seems to be a beautiful mix of Mirror’s Edge, Watch Dogs, and Enslaved and perhaps some pieces from the movies Total Recall and Strange Days.
All of the above titles are all highly ranked by me (still haven’t played Watch Dogs, but I am very much looking forward to it; when talking about Total Recall I refer to the original movie) so I am really looking forward for this title. Some of you might think there have been quite many sci-fi/parkour/cyborg-related games recently, but if you compare to most other themes tried in games I don’t think it is exactly overflowing with good games in this category.
In Remember Me you play as a woman who moves around in a futuristic Paris (and perhaps other locations), trying to stop the over-usage of implants. Resembling Mirror’s Edge and some Enslaved the protagonist moves around rooftops, walls and numerous other obstacles quite easy; but she also seems to pack a hefty punch and swirling kicks. I am really keeping my fingers crossed that they keep the parkour and movement parts really hard, similar as Mirror’s Edge. I really liked that game, where you had to time your jump perfectly to avoid a plunge to death, and I am looking forward to do it again! Recently most platform games have been too easy, at least on the jumping side. Enslaved was a great game, but one part where it lacked in difficulty was its platform parts, since those parts were more or less just about pressing jump and forward without almost any timing required.
Remember Me is on my most wanted 2013 list, together with Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Watch Dogs. Since Mirror’s Edge 2 is no-where to be seen I am hoping for Remember Me; although I still want a Mirror’s Edge 2! When more is known about Remember Me, I will surely write up some more in-depth texts for you.
The Eurogamer expo 2012 is near, only two months to go now! More and more of the stuff that will be available at the expo is being revealed. Today I got some great news, hearing that one of my most wanted games, Ni No Kuni:Wrath of the White Witch will be present at the show floor. I am crossing my fingers that it will be playable! Please!! 🙂
Other cool games that I know will be available is Resident Evil 6, Castlevania: Lords of shadow – Mirror of fate and Tomb Raider. Then there are also the big titles Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3, although my hype is not too big for those games; but I will make sure to give them a try, of course!
Keep your eyes open for more info on on Eurogamer expo 2012. I’ll keep you posted!
So which games managed to surface above all the “game noise” that E3 represents? Here are some new revelations and updated old coming games that caught my attention during the show, and some that could have done better… Mind you, the best one is at the bottom!
Is it only me or have all games recently just focused on the dark, apocalyptic hypothesis of the future? There are some rays of light anyway for the gamer who prefers the more positive, philosophical and bright side of gaming life! I have picked out three games that will bring some light and hope to your screen in the near future.
