E3 2014: What are you excited about?

So E3 has wrapped up its first day, and I know the hype around this media expo might not be what it used to be, but I still find myself enjoying the spectacle of it all Wink  And while much focus of the show might be on console based games, I was super excited about one reveal yesterday:

Grim Fandango is coming back!  Initially an exclusive time-release for the PS4 and the PS Vita, game designer Tim Schafer confirmed via Twitter that the game will also be coming to other platforms soon Good  I'm super excited about this release/remastering, as I missed out on the game when it was released (didn't have a PC anywhere new/powerful enough to handle it), and never picked it up before it ceased being published/available.  For more info, you can check out this quick article from Polygon: http://www.polygon.com/e3-2014/2014/6/9/5795458/grim-fandango-ps4-ps-vita

Anything else you're excited about?

I never played Grim Fandango and consequently don't understand what makes it so good. If it comes out for the PC, though, I'll give it a shot, provided it's not too expensive. Most of E3 seems to have to do with consoles, though - exclusives, new reasons why their games can't attain 60FPS in Full HD and more retreads of existing franchises.

That said, the... "No Man's Sky?" game looks pretty cool. In concept, anyway. In practice, "zoning" into and out of a planet looks suspiciously like cloud cover over a loading screen. Still, it has a lot more potential than, say, Destiny.

Of all the things I've lost,
I think I miss my mind the most.

Grim Fandango is one of my favorite games of all time, and my single favorite soundtrack.
