Podcast: The games to look forward to at E3 2018

podcast-47-e3

You better not shout, you better not cry, you better not expect the Elder Scrolls VI to be announced in front of an LA audience I’m tellin’ you why. E3 2018 is coming to town!

Yes, and with it, so come the takes. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, wants in on this. So here are some of our predictions, hopes and fears for this year’s dreaded multimedia assault on the nervous system.

Alec is dreaming of XCOM sequel news but is more realistically expecting Spelunky 2 info, or an official look at Prey’s upcoming moon expansion. Meanwhile Brendan laments for the low likelihood of a Elder Scrolls teaser, especially considering we’ve already been teased with Fallout 76. Tears all round. It’s not all E3 nonsense, mind. Alec has also been playing bloodsucking RPG from Dontnod, Vampyr, in which he killed a landlord, so it sounds pretty good.

You can listen above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later.

You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts. Music is by blood-sucking maestro of the night, Jack de Quidt.

    Here’s hoping that Focus Home shows off Greedfall. Or Call of Cthulhu. Or Werewolf: the Apocalypse.

    And, of course, Squeeenix must finally announce a proper Legacy of Kain sequel (I will keep saying this until it eventually happens. If BG&E2 can happen, so can this).

    Aside from that, it’ll be interesting to see if Microsoft will take the extra step and bring its backwards compatible console catalog to Win10. If they allow me to buy and play emulated RDR with M&K, I’ll be willing to upgrade to Win 10.

    Also curious what’s the Dishonored team been working on since Death of the Outsider. It would be VERY cool to get a new Arkane IP announcement from Bethesda.
