Welcome back to another OnlySP Week in Review! Boy was last week crazy, and our E3 coverage is continuing through out the rest of this week as we finish up our hands-on impressions, interviews and more. Our writers seemingly had a great time at the convention and Nick Plessas will be bringing you an E3 experience video in the coming days so you can get an idea of what it’s like to work at the convention.
As for what’s gone on at OnlySP over the past week, it was mostly just news coverage of E3 2015. There’s not a whole lot to talk about there and quite honestly, I’m pretty burnt out from all the writing. I wrote over 100 stories during the week of E3 for the site, which is twice the amount I’ve ever done for an E3 convention so I took this weekend off and headed home to have some real, non-college food and spend some time with the family around the campfire.
If you’re wondering what I’m most excited for out of E3 2015, well to be frank, quite a lot. Ever since Horizon: Zero Dawn was even teased I’ve been excited to see what it was all about and when Guerrilla Games finally revealed it on stage at the Sony E3 2015 press conference, I was blown away. The game’s concept is something entirely new, the graphics looked stunning and the gameplay looked incredibly fun and dynamic.
I was also very much impressed by our early look at Gears of War 4, and while the demo didn’t show much, it definitely wasn’t what I expected and that’s what excited me the most. It’ll be interesting to see where The Coalition takes the story of Gears of War considering it’s after the events of Gears of War 3. I’m curious to see if the game even takes place on the planet Sera still. And, as you all know I’m a Halo fanboy so I was excited to see our first campaign footage of Halo 5: Guardians.
There’s plenty more I’m excited about, but I’ll save all that for future editorials. However, we have lined up an exciting interview for July for a newly announced Xbox One indie game that you may be surprised to see her. Once we saw the game in action though, we knew we needed to know more about it.
As for my personal gaming update I really didn’t have much time to game over the past couple weeks. I did pick up a copy of Portal 2 again during the Steam Summer Sale as I never got to finish it before I turned in my Xbox 360 to get the Xbox One. The game still looks pretty darn gorgeous on the PC even after all these years and the voice acting is still just as funny as I remember it. GlaDOS is one of my favorite characters at this point I think.
To wrap up, with the end of our Summer Giveaway we’ll be returning to offering a new giveaway each week here on OnlySP through our Week in Review. This week, we’ll be giving away a code for Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn, which happens to be a sequel to one of my all-time favorite games. To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave your own Week in Review down in the comments section.
Don’t forget that our Patreon has started as well and so far we haven’t had many people pledge at this point. More than likely this is because we can’t offer reward tiers at this point in time. We have a few ideas for reward tiers, but we’ll need to go through some further discussion before we move forward with them.
