E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 3

Firstly, apologies for the delay on this post, my work has been a little hectic as of late.

So, we have arrived at the third and final part of my E3 posts! Here you'll find the final eight games that I am looking forward to playing when they are released. Feel free to go back and read Part 1 and Part 2.

Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker is a level editor game, allowing players to create their own Super Mario levels. You'll also be able to play through them, and try out others creations. From the footage released so far, it is shaping up to be perhaps one of the best Wii U games available.

Expected release: 11th September 2015.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Not much has been revealed as of yet, but we do know that the kids of South Park have ditched the fantasy theme in favour of superheroes. You can see the full list of characters and their superhero alter-ego's here

Expected release: None announced yet.

The Last Guardians

It's been a while since we have seen The Last Guardian, so it was a pleasant surprise to see a new trailer revealed at the Sony portion of E3 2015. Whilst details are still rather sparse, it is supposed to have gameplay similar to that in Ico and Shadows of the Colossus. Stylistically, this looks beautiful, and I cannot wait to find out more about it soon. 

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

Asthetically, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is a cross between Wind Waker and A Link Between Worlds. A co-operative game, it allows up to three players to control different colours of Link, with each one joining forces to fight enemies and serve puzzles. I loved Four Swords Adventures, so I am looking forward to some more collaborative Zelda gameplay soon! 

Expected release: End of 2015.

The Walking Dead: Michonne

I love Telltale Games' The Walking Dead series, and Michonne is one of my favourite characters from the comic book and TV series. Therefore, I was naturally excited when this mini-series was revealed. Set between issues #126 and #139 of the comic, this three episode mini-series explores her untold journey between those issues.

Expected release: Autumn 2015.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

The last entry in the Uncharted series to feature Nathan Drake, Uncharted 4 is set three years after the events of Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception. Drake is now retired from his career of adventuring, and is leading a normal life with wife Elena. However, when his brother who is assumed dead suddenly appears asking for Nathan's help, he is suddenly thrown back into action. 

I am also looking forward to the Uncharted collection, being released on the PS4 too!

Expected release: March 2016.


Unravel is one of those adorable, charming looking games that I am sure plenty of us will fall in love with upon its release. In Unravel, you play as Yarny, a tiny and cute character that unravels as you move. As Yarny, you have to traverse across a multitude of environments, using the yarn to get across.

Yoshi's Wooly World

Yoshi's Wooly World was recently released, but I have kept this in here due to it being one of my games I wanted during E3...

Not having played it yet myself, Yoshi's Wooly World looks absolutely adorable! It combines typical Mario-style platformer levels, with a cute, fun and cheerful style.

Read Part 1 & Part 2!

E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 2

E3 is always a great time for gamers. It gets us discussing our favourite reveals, and the least-popular upcoming releases. Even in the more disappointing conferences had their moments to shine too. 

Part 1 saw me list some of my most anticipated games that were announced at E3, and Part 2 continues this. Read on, and see if you agree with my choices!

PS4 Share: The Beauty in Tomb Raider

I have been re-playing Tomb Raider on the PS4 after picking it up in the sale when I got the console for my birthday in April. I loved Tomb Raider when I played it on the Xbox 360. I've always been a fan-girl of Lara Croft anyway, but the revamp really stuck with me. I loved the gameplay, the story and this new version of one of gamings most familiar heroines. 

Check out this screenshot I took whilst playing a few nights ago. It really reminded me just how beautiful this game can be!

E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 1

E3 2015 was a mixed bag this year, with plenty of exciting, big reveals, but also a few disappointments along the way too. 

For me, Microsoft, Sony and Bethesda were the sure-fire winners, presenting a range of hotly anticipated games, whilst select announcements Nintendo (Metroid Prime Federation Force and Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival) and EA (sports and mobile games...hmmm) were among the disappointments. Below is a list of the games that I am personally looking forward to the most. Please note that this is my own list, so you may agree or disagree with what I have chosen!

8-Bit Girl: YouTube & Twitch Updates!

This week, I finally started off my own Twitch account, and I added some new gameplay stream videos to my YouTube. 

Both are in their early days, and I plan to be streaming much more, especially when I get hold of a PS4 camera. 

Please follow both accounts to keep up to date with my gameplay. I look forward to uploading more soon!

Lara Croft: Relic Run

Time to get nostalgic for old-school Tomb Raider with the free-to-download Lara Croft: Relic Run.

When a shadowy conspiracy threatens the world, Lara Croft is equipped to unearth the truth. Decked in her classic costume, she collects clues to uncover ancient relics, edging closer to the secrets within.
