My E3 2017 Wishlist
E3 is less than two weeks away, and the hype is real! Here are things I want to see at E3 this year. Note: These are not predictions, but rather just my personal wishlist.
Virtual Console for Nintendo Switch
One of my favorite things about the Nintendo Wii and Wii U was the Virtual Console. Even though I still own most of my old consoles, most of them are packed away to save space on our TV stand. I don't mind paying for games on Virtual Console, even for games I already own; it's worth it for the convenience. I would love to see NES, SNES, N64, and even GameCube games on the Switch. I have really been wanting to play Luigi's Mansion again, and I would love to just be able to turn on my Switch and launch the game, rather than dig out my GameCube and find a space for it on our TV stand. I want to use our Switch more, and this would be an awesome incentive for Switch owners to play their new console more. I am still playing my PlayStation 4 a lot more than the Switch, and I really want more reasons to fire up the console.
The Wolf Among Us, Season 2
Okay, this was on my list last year, but I am still holding out hope for a second season of Telltale's The Wolf Among Us. Next to The Walking Dead, it's my favorite Telltale series. I love all the characters, which are based on characters from the Fables comic book series. Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, and lots of fans are anxious for a second season. Every time Telltale Games posts on Instagram, at least 50 percent of the comments are along the lines of, "Season 2 of The Wolf Among Us PLEASE!" Hopefully, Telltale is noticing how many fans are anxiously awaiting to hear if a second season is even a possibility. Even if it's not, we just want to know either way.
Release date/window for The Last of Us: Part II
I am currently playing The Last of Us on Grounded difficulty while waiting for The Last of Us: Part II. I haven't looked forward to a game this much since Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. I would love to have some idea as to when it's coming out. I just want to know more about this game. I can't imagine that it won't be mentioned at Sony's conference, and I'm really holding out for a nice, meaty gameplay trailer.
Untitled Star Wars game by Visceral Games - Official title/release window
At last year's conference, we didn't get to see much on Visceral's new Star Wars game. It was just enough to whet my appetite, and I can't imagine that we won't see more on this game at E3 this year. I really hope we'll learn what the official title is, and maybe find out when in 2018 we can expect to play it.
A game like P.T.
If you know me, you know how heartbroken I was to learn that Silent Hills was cancelled. Even worse, P.T. isn't even available to play anymore, unless you still have it downloaded on your console. Unfortunately, I don't have the PS4 that I played P.T. on anymore, so it will have to live on in my heart. With Hideo Kojima working on Death Stranding, it's highly unlikely that he and Guillermo del Toro will make a comeback with a Silent Hills-esque game. I was really looking forward to Allison Road, which looked very similar to P.T., but that was cancelled, too. I am hoping to see a game that manages to scare the pants off of me the way that P.T. did.
