What I’m Hoping To See

  • Half-Life 3 Announcement: Over the past couple of weeks, Half-Life 3 has been making numerous headlines. From developers wearing promotional t-shirts to (rumored) Steam achievements being leaked. The crowd is hyped and ready. They want to see a Half-Life 3 game happen now!
  • Sony’s PlayStation Fighter: “Title Fight” has been on the video game wishlist of many fans. For years, fans have dreamed of having a Super Smash Brothers-style fighter with all their favorite PlayStation mascots. Pictures have made their way online amongst other rumors.
  • Grand Theft Auto V Info: It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Grand Theft Auto V. All we know is that the game is taking place in Los Santos, San Andreas. Perhaps the name of this mystery protagonist or some returning features will pump us up even more. A release date would also be nice.
  • Assassin’s Creed III Announcement: While there has been no hint that Assassin’s Creed III will be announced at the VGAs, a man can dream, can’t he?
