Its like Spaceteam, but taking place in a VR diversion of the Business. Provided Ubisoft gives the mechanisms some depth, and youve got three buddies who also own VR headsets, this could result in an excellent group game. Its Quakes grand return in an era where e-sports rule supreme and stadium shots are growing from the ashes. Plus, Bethesdas recent Doom and Wolfenstein reboots have kicked a variety of butt. So yeah, Im pumped at least at the thought. Done with Doom and jonesing for another fast paced, over the top shot? Shadow Warrior 2 appears poised to fit that bill with firearms, gibs, and copious Wang jokes. Kill devils with a machine gun that fires ice-bullets. Impale them on spikes you summon out of the earth. And needless to say, decapitate them with your trusty sword. If all goes well, we could have a real toss up on our hands for Best Shot of 2016. The first Deus Ex is considered by lots of people including yours truly as among the finest games ever created. After a disappointing sequel in 2003, the show sat dormant for years, until 2011s Human Revolution recaptured the glory of the first with a focus on player option, changed character constructs, and worlds were revolving around adaptive system-driven gameplay. Our 30 minute hands on with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided plopped us in a degree thats incredibly changed, with surroundings and layouts contributory to stealthy kinds, snipe-y kinds, passive kinds, and violently competitive kinds. It seems like Deus Ex, in other words hopefully with more considerate manager fights and that alone is enough to get me interested in World Divideds August 23 launch.

Except for the new multiplayer Violation way. As a longtime Deus Ex-devotee, that siloed-off chain of challenge rooms seems stupid. But I wouldnt purchase a Deus Ex game for its multiplayer anyhow. But what can I say? Its distinct when youre the one screaming. Getting a group of five jointly to sail a pirate from lifting the anchor to furling sails to using individual cannons is goofy fun. Its coming sometime in 2017. There are three things you must understand about me: One; I grew up in the south. Two, I adore open-world games. And three, I 've a strange fixation with the mob, from timeless movies like Goodfellas and Donnie Brasco to market historical novels like Cigar City Mafia. Fingers crossed the game is more consistently high than Mafia II, which included flashes of brilliance but only as many boring interludes.

One thing already seems positive for the games October 7 start: The 1968 Louisiana setting absolutely oozes feeling in ways that yet another open world take on L.A. or New York never could. The Forza Horizon collection has been my favourite arcade racer for years now. And now it is time to throw that same Xbox One in the trash. Microsoft announced its Xbox Play Everywhere system at E3, where buying individual games provides you with a copy of both Xbox and Windows 10. Blasting through the Australian Outback at a silky-smooth 144Hz? Seems perfect. Okay, okay, Undead Labs didnt disclose much about State of Decay 2 beyond the short preview above. But the State of Decay gently became one of my favourite sleeper hits of the previous few years with its strategic focus, uncompromising machinists, and long-term departure for the characters youve so fondly coddled during a hellish zombie apocalypse. State of Decay 2 looks to seamlessly work a consistent, shared world into the mixture. Is the unrelenting zombie horde closing in on your miniature group of survivors? Firing off a flare places you in matchmaking mode, Game Informer reports meaning other players may appear to save your bacon when all seems lost. Or perhaps youll only end up enticing others to their departure, also. Seems like a recipe for some exciting times in 2017. Tyrannys no sequel, though.
