Just as E3 remains ever the premiere convention for showing off the latest and most innovative video games the world will eagerly await, it is also the prime location for the titans of hardware to step up and prove to the gaming community why we should sink our heard earned dollars into their platform. This year, Sony took the stage and practically dared anyone to challenge them.
Sony's conference at E3 2016 was a well paced and console/exclusive-heavy showing. Starting the show off with a full orchestral overture lead by Bear McCready, they lead right into the first demo which surprised us with an older, bearded and much less screamy Kratos teaching his son to hunt and de-horn the occasional flaming rock carrying creature that crosses their path. This new installment of the God of War series will take on the original PS2 game's name, simply being called God of War, but appears to offer an open world setting that flows more fluidly then its predecessors and will allow the player to explore and discover different regions of the map as you progress. A release is set for December of 2017.

In what seemed to be one of the few actual gameplay demos shown at Bethesda's E3 presentation, Arkane Studios' Dishonored 2 was showcased, said to be arriving in stores on November 11th of this year. The sequel to the 2012 stealth/action game Dishonored puts us back with Royal Protector Corvo Attano in the city of Dunwall, but branches out with a new character Emperess Emily Kaldwin in the city of Karnaca, allowing for expanded and varied gameplay styles and a much larger world.
