E3 2015 Day 1 Wrap Up

Hooooly Shit guys it's been a big day for Video Games guys and here's the low down on the big 4 Press Conferences today.  While this isn't everything it is everything that piqued my interest.

Over all I have to say I feel like Microsoft's conference was stronger this year and if it weren't for that Final Fantasy VII trailer and the Horizon Zero Dawn game play I'd have been severely disappointed in Sony.

The Hammer Picks of the day go to Microsoft's Halolens demo and the Final Fantasy VII trailer.  What were your high points for today's showings?  Let us know in the comments below or at one of these links.

Halo Guardians- all I gotta say is Buck is back baby!

Fallout 4- POWER ARMOR! and you get to play before the fallout!

Gears of War 4- New Cogs, Same Battle... and I'm okay with that

Rise of the Tomb Raider- More Lara and I'm totally happy with that

Halolens Demo with Minecraft- Holy shit this gets me all kinds of excited

Some other awesomeness from Xbox

  • Xbox One backwards Combatibility with 360 games (100 at launch)
  • New Elite Controller puts other controllers to shame I guess
  • Game Overview lets you play indie games that are in development


Horizon Zero Dawn- Probably one of the coolest new IPs

Shenmue 3- well not really but it's a kickstarter that's already 2/3 of the way there

Uncharted 4: A Thieves End- Drake and Sully are back to their crazy shenanigans

Final Fantasy VII Remake- Ohhhhh  fuck yes, no other words

Other news for Sony
  • Street Fighter V- for PS4 only... yay?
  • Call of Duty DLC coming to PS4 first
  • Also Playstation Vue getting individual TV Channel Subscriptions. Rolling out in San Fran and Los Angeles including these channels: Showtime, HBO, Fox Soccer and a Channel powered by Machinima


Mirrors Edge Catalyst- the motion sickness might be worth it

Star Wars Old Republic Knights of the Fallen Empire- God damn they make great intros

Star Wars Battle Front - Need I say more?  well I guess I do.  Awesome... want it now

Mass Effect Andromeda- subtle tease but even gets me, a non fan, excited to see what's next


South Park: the Fractured but the Whole- Can't like this enough, more of the first one with better frame rate please!

 For Honor- I really don't know what to make of this one but it looks like Medieval co-op awesome

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon- really reminds me of Far Cry in a good way

That's all for today,  Looking forward to tomorrow!
