Some events are better than others. It's an objective, measurable fact. What unit of measure can you apply to an event to quantify its level of quality? Simple -- add the amount of Jake "Virt" Kaufman to the total of Cor...

Destructoid's definitive guide to E3 2014

Jun 09 // Dale North
Announcements: BattleCry Civilization: Beyond Earth Costume Quest 2 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Far Cry 4 Forza Horizon 2 Hatoful Boyfriend Halo 5: Guardians Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Homefront: The Revolution Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age Hyrule Warriors LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Metro: Redux Mortal Kombat X Pokemon Omega Ruby/ Alpha Sapphire Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Tetris Ultimate Big games to be shown: Destiny Tales from the Borderlands Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel The Order: 1886 Alien: Isolation Assassin's Creed Unity Batman: Arkham Knight Deep Down Dragon Age: Inquisition Evolve Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain No Man's Sky Mirror's Edge Next Star Wars game The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Super Smash Bros. Leaks: Battlefield Hardline Metro: Redux Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (oops!) Rumors: Project Beast Mario Maker Phantom Dust New online game from Guerrilla Prince of Persia 2D New The Last of Us for PS4 Delay announcements: Batman: Arkham Knight (now 2015) Dying Light (Feb. 2015) Mad Max (2015) The Division (2015) The Order: 1886 (early 2015) Steam Machines Pre-E3 Previews: The Evil Within Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor The Order: 1886 Sonic Boom H1Z1 Evolve Press conferences: Xbox E3 Media Briefing -- 9:30 a.m. Pacific, Monday, June 9 -- streaming at xbox.com EA World Premiere -- 12:00 p.m. Pacific, Monday, June 9 -- streaming at www.ea.com/e3, or here at Destructoid Ubisoft E3 Media Briefing -- 3:00 p.m. Pacific, Monday, June 9 PlayStation E3 Media Briefing -- 6:00 p.m. Pacific, Monday, June 9 -- streaming at playstation.com, or here at Destructoid Nintendo Digital Event -- 9:00 a.m. Pacific, Tuesday June 10 -- streaming at e3.nintendo.com Streams: Battlefield Hardline exclusive gameplay stream -- 1:00 p.m. Pacific, Monday, June 9 -- streaming at Twitch.tv/Battlefield Events: Smash Bros Invitational --  4:00 p.m. Pacific, Tuesday, June 10 -- streaming at  Nintendo’s Twitch channel Games: Atlus: All things Persona have us excited about our appointment at E3 this year. We doubt that Persona 5 is done enough to show, but I'll insist anyway. Persona Q is more likely, and that's good by us. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be there, and Persona 4 Dancing All Night should too. But please just show us anything on Persona 5, Atlus. Don't make us wait until TGS. They also have games like Abyss Odyssey and a pinball RPG. Bungie: Destiny. That is all. Capcom: Capcom let some of their cats out of the bag with a few title announcements. People seem most excited about Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, but Dead Rising 3 for PC is also a cool thing. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Ultra Street Fighter IV, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate round out their offerings. And what ever happened to Deep Down? Plus, it would be... evil of them to not mention any other of their franchises next week. EA: The biggest thing for EA is probably the biggest pre-E3 leak, Battlefield Hardline. The cooperative cops/criminals game from DICE and Visceral is EA's headliner for E3 2014. Other big games include Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Sims 4, and a huge sports lineup. I know you're hoping to hear more about Mirror's Edge 2, or some new Star Wars business. Konami: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will hold down the fort over at Konami. We expect gameplay! Microsoft: Microsoft has games. They've made sure we know that. There's a new Forza Horizon 2, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, and a few other goodies we know about but can't talk about yet. At least there's the teased new IPs and Japanese games -- we're looking forward to those. As for hopes, let's hope we see a new Gears of War. Don't get your hopes up on Quantum Break, though -- it's coming to gamescom later this year instead. But we get the feeling that there's some feature or program announcements that we'll hear about at the press conference that will make Xbox owners happy. We think they're going to announce something that will have them catching up with their nearest competitor in a particular area -- subscriptions. Namco Bandai: Namco Bandai doesn't get all the pre-E3 buzz that it should. They have lots of stuff I want to play in their lineup, including Tales of Hearts R, Tales of Xillia 2, and Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn. Lords of the Fallen also sounds interesting. Nintendo: When you watch the stream for Nintendo's event, but keep the volume just low enough so you can listen for my scream. If you are anywhere in North America, you will hear my screams of joy and excitement if we hear anything about Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. I will break windows. Zelda. Zelda. Zelda. Zelda. Zelda. A new game? Yes, please. Expect something special from Zelda Williams. Also, more on Hyrule Warriors.  Show us this X game from Monolith Soft already, will ya? Or at least tell us what it's really called. I hope we hear more about this Mario Maker as well as other 3DS titles. I'd bet Metroid is a 3DS game. We should also hear more about top franchises like Mario Party, and maybe they'll even do something with the recently announced NFC figures. Sega: Alien: Isolation and Sonic Boom are the big ones for the show. We can daydream about Yakuza or Phantasy Star Online news, but don't get your hopes up too much. Sony: The Last Guardian. Finally. No? I'm never giving up hope. We'll see a lot of Driveclub, The Order: 1886, and probably The Witness. Hopefully a new Uncharted is in the lineup for the show. The Vita has a lot of upcoming surprises, I'm sure. We already know about some good titles, like Freedom Wars. Sony is probably the most likely to have the most tricks up its sleeve. They blew our faces away at GDC with their VR offering, Project Morpheus. Let's hope they have more to show at E3. Square Enix: We know we'll see Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMIX at the show, and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call will also be there in a big way. Who knows if we'll see any of the bigger titles, like Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts III. Ubisoft: The Division still has us hoping for something outstanding. Hopefully we'll see more. Ubi has a bunch of other hot stuff like Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew, giving them one of the strongest lineups of the show. But there's sure to be surprises. How about the rumored Prince of Persia? WB: Warner Bros. is coming out swinging at E3: Batman: Arkham Knight, Dying Light, Gauntlet, and Mad Max. Oh, and a little thing called Mortal Kombat X.   Lastly, follow the E3 team on Twitter! We'll be updating and taking pictures of things as they come up right on the show floor.
