E3 2014 is just a few days away now, so here's the annual discussion topic with the usual mainstay features of just where the hell you can watch the all-important conferences next week and my predictions for the Big 3. Times listed are local (Pacific) and UK (BST). Convert as necessary. Make sure to join us in #Pokecharms during the conferences to watch along with us. Monday Microsoft: 9.30am PDT/5.30pm UK – Xbox One/Xbox 360/Xbox.com/Windows Phone - Just hit up whichever's easiest and watch live. EA: 12pm PDT/8pm UK – EA's Website, Spike TV or Twitch.Tv (and the Xbox One Twitch app). Ubisoft: 3pm PDT/11pm UK– Youtube (Beware: Contains Aisha Tyler) Sony: 6pm PDT/2am UK– Selected theatres in North America, Ustream, Playstation.com Tuesday Nintendo: 9am PDT/5pm UK - Nintendo E3 Direct Notable games confirmed to be at this year's E3: Assassin's Creed Unity Batman Arkham Knight (Delayed to 2015) Battlefield Hardline Call of Duty Kevin Spacey Advanced Warfare Disney Infinity 2.0 Dragon Age Inquisition Fable Legends Far Cry 4 Forza Horizon 2 Halo 5 Guardians (coming out 2015) Killer Instinct Season 2 New The Legend of Zelda Wii U Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS) The Sims 4 Sonic Boom Star Wars Battlefront Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) Super Smash Bros (Wii U/3DS) Tetris Ultimate (Ubisoft) Tom Clancy's The Division (delayed to 2015) The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (coming out 2015) It's also fully expected that Ubisoft will be announcing a second Assassin's Creed game to come out at the end of the year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC to go along with the next-gen only (and PC) release of Unity. Its codename is Comet. EA is also announcing "nearly half a dozen new games", which is expected to include at least one other Star Wars title as well as a confirmed new not-Need-For-Speed Criterion game. Mirror's Edge 2 is also confirmed to have "updates" at the show, but there's no confirmation that we'll see anything more on the game as it's been dark since first announced last year. There's also a fairly strong chance that EA and Bioware will be announcing a next-gen update of the Mass Effect trilogy in advance of an imminent Mass Effect 4. It's probably unlikely that ME4 itself will appear at the show, but some form of official announcement about its existence is probable. Rockstar has also been of considerable focus this year as there are a number of rumours swirling around re-releases of their existing games, let alone any new ones. Red Dead Redemption is supposedly finally on track for a PC release, while GTA V is fully expected to launch on both the next-gen consoles and PC within this year. There's not much hope for either a new game being announced this year, or even any sign of Agent, but right now it'd be a surprise if there wasn't any news from them at all. I'll be updating the below posts with my predictions for what we'll see from the Big 3. Check back soon to see what to expect.
