E3 of Dreams 2017

  • Let's see...

    • Metroid. 2D or 3D, I don't care. I want a significant new entry in this goddamn series! Or else I'll make it myself.
    • Mega Man X. Pleaaaaaase Capcom, how long are you going to keep recycling the old games? Make a new one, you don't need a huge budget, be clever about it! Either HD sprites, or gorgeous stylised 3D like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
    • Speaking of which, I wouldn't be against a new Donkey Kong Country!
    • Splinter Cell. I really enjoyed Blacklist's gameplay, felt like they hit the right balance to satisfy stealth purists and action-oriented players. I didn't hate the story.
    • A new Rocksteady game, Batman or a wider DC setting.
    • Dead Space! The fight's not over! Bring the game back to its roots, follow Resident Evil 7's example.
    • Command & Conquer/Red Alert. And make it for casuals like me. I just like making big armies and watching those cheesy FMV cutscenes.
    • Tomb Raider 2 and 3 Anniversary, HD remakes in the same vein as the first one. I'd love to replay those games with sexier graphics.
    • Bayonetta 3. Obviously.
    • Deus Ex, the end of the new trilogy. Just cancel your shitty Marvel plans, Square Enix. Nobody cares about Marvel. The world needs more Deus Ex.
    • Pikmin 4. Show it already, Miyamoto!
    • Star Fox Guard 2. Ten times more fun than Zero.
    • Chrono Trigger 2. That's right.
    • Diablo 4. For the love of Azrael, please have a decent story this time.
    • All of the above, Switch exclusive.

    That will do. Thank you very much.

  • Just a few, many of which have already been mentioned.

    • Final Fantasy VII Remake: Part 1 with a Holiday 2017 release date.
    • Pokemon Stars is not just a port of Sun/Moon to the Switch, but a game where you control the camera with the right analog stick. Also battles play out more like Final Fantasy X than standard Pokemon.
    • Dark Cloud 3 announcement trailer. This would never have been on my radar if Brad didn't mention it in a previous betting special and now I can't get it out of my head.
    • Kingdom Hearts 3 with a general release date early 2018.
    • A new Ratchet & Clank game announcement. I don't really care if its a reimagining of Going Commando or a brand new title.
    • A new Jak & Daxter game. More original, less 3.

  • @Tragosaurus said in E3 of Dreams 2017:

    Pokemon Stars is not just a port of Sun/Moon to the Switch, but a game where you control the camera with the right analog stick. Also battles play out more like Final Fantasy X than standard Pokemon.

    Out of curiosity, how do you envision a battle system like FFX for pokemon? Since it's (for the most part) 1-on-1 battles, wouldn't the turn wheel kind of be pointless? Or do you mean more like in the way that battles are staged?

  • @naltmank Yeah I mean more the way they are staged. I would like having a party of like 3 Pokemon that you send into battle going up against however many opponents in a random encounter or trainer battle. Being able to see the turn order so you can plan out your moves and see how using Agility will effect the flow. You could use a turn to swap out Pokemon, use an item, and such.

    I obviously haven't thought about the nittygritty of how this would work in Pokemon. I've been bored with the Pokemon battle system for a while but have a hug nostalgia soft spot for Pokemon itself. I would love to see the system shaken up somehow, away from the current 1v1 or sometimes 2v2 battles. I don't expect them to ever do it, or that it would even be the right move for the franchise, its just my dream.

  • I know this will never happen but a new 3Rd person Pokemon game, more realistically i want a new elder scrolls game.

  • Bayo 3 and/or The Wonderful 102 would make me moister than an oyster.

  • @Musou-Tensei


  • Breath of Fire III + IV remaster or remake. Or Breath of Fire 6 but ya....

  • Final Fantasy Tactics remastered for PS4.

    Kinda a bland dream, huh? But wait, what's this... I'm taking the steps to acquire Cloud in the game, but his quest line ends completely differently. After fighting a boss added to this version specifically (and the hardest in the game), a menu pops up informing you of a free download you've earned. The download ends up being a demo for a brand new Final Fantasy Tactics set in the world of Ivalice, occuring after the events of the first one, releasing next year.

    Also, if we're dreaming real, real big, Atlus holds a secret press conference, declares that I am the best Persona fan to ever exist, and offers me a permanent job at their headquarters. For some reason, this also includes a free hot tub because that sounds kinda nice right now.

  • Final Fantasy Tactics Remastered on ps4 with a upcoming sequel because i want to know what happens to Delita after the ending of that game what did he go on to achieve as king since we hear of his accomplishments in vagrant story

  • I'm extremely disappointed in this thread. I guess people don't dream big any more.

  • @ib0show Uhm, my dream included a hot tub. It doesn't get any bigger than that.

  • It's the end of the Sony conference. People are anticipating something big. The stage goes dark, with a lone spotlight on center stage. Onto the stage walks Evan Wells, president of Naughty Dog LLC. He tells the crowd that he knows they want information about Last of Us 2, but that he has something even bigger to to talk about. He's here to announce that they've finally corrected a 14 year old mistake. Yep, you guessed it, JAK 2 AND III ARE RETCONNED INTO NONEXISTENCE AND THEIR NEW, TRUE SEQUEL TO JAK AND DAXTER IS AVAILABLE IS STORES AND THROUGH DIGITAL DOWNLOAD RIGHT NOW, BABY, SO GO HAVE SOME FUN, EVERYONE, he says, looking not just directly into the camera, but directly into my soul.

    And then I wake up, because this dream is too good and pure for this cold, imperfect world that we call reality.

  • @jipostus I wouldn't be so sure. Factor 5 is now back and if I recall correctly, they have the rights to Turrican.


  • @jipostus Yeah, it happened about 3 weeks ago and wasn't widely reported. I'm also hoping that means another dream of mine, which is that the unreleased Rogue Squadron Trilogy game they made for Wii gets a release on Switch!

    Also, I'm loving the excitement! As Brad said after the announcement of FFVII remake: "Video games are the best you guys."

  • I'm a simple girl with simple dreams.

    No No Kuni 2 Release Date
    Pokémon Stars
    Animal Crossing Switch
    Atlus's new IP
    Okami 3
    A Hat in Time Release Date
    Any Persona Remake
    New Shin Megami Tensei

    EDIT: I've wanted it for so long that it didn't occur to me...MOTHER 3.
    EDIT 2: I can't believe I forgot! MORE KATAMARI!!!

  • Well, at this point Paper Mario and 3D Zelda have been dead since the early 2010s. I don't have any expectation for their weird, lethargic imposters walking around in their skins, whenever they will come again. Okami 3 is probably never happening because the world forgot how to make Zelda games. In term of realistic expectations of games I will enjoy, there's;

    • A new IP from Bethesda the studio (literally any setting but generic sci-fi)
    • Monster Hunter 5 on Switch (featuring 15 or so totally new monsters to set it apart from the release games)
    • Metroid Prime 4 developed by Retro (The easy and highly accurate pointer controls and Samus' ship / interplanetary travel returns from Corruption, but just forget about the Stylux tease from that game's 100% credits. The similar planet post credits scene at the end of Halo 3 only lead to a mediocre sequel.)

  • A lot of dreams have come true in the last couple of years but here are some more! The mix in terms of possibility.

    • The unreleased Rogue Squadron trilogy gets a release on Switch.
    • We get a new Advance Wars and it's back to the old anime style.
    • Resident Evil 2 remake can be played in both first-person and with fixed camera angles.
    • We get a Resident Evil collection with every single game included, along with the remakes. The limited edition boxset smells of Barry Burton's aftershave.
    • A new Medievil game is announced.
    • Retro Studios are creating a brand new IP.
    • A bunch of cool new IPs.
    • Sonic Adventure 3 is announced as the next game after Sonic Forces.
    • Pokemon is getting a whole new 3D RPG (possibly a remake of Red/Blue) and it has a Dark Souls-style system where you can choose to play online, go into other people's games and challenge them to Pokemon battles.
    • A sequel to Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door is announced, and Shigsy (aka Miyamoto) promises he'll leave Intelligent Systems alone on this one.
    • Sony do their Smash Brothers clone properly this time.
    • Spyro the Dragon gets either a remake or a new platforming game, and Stewart Copeland's doing the soundtrack.

    And as a bonus:

    • Konami apologises for being a bunch of shits.
    • The CEO of Konami comes out on Sony's stage, and then Kojima and Del Toro come in with a steel chair, smack him in the head and reveal Silent Hills is still happening.

  • http://www.gamecriticsawards.com/judges.html - second NA outlet, a dream come true for many of the allies already. :) Kudos to the EZA crew!
