Things I'm Looking Forward To At E3, Part 2

If you caught the original version of this, it was an amalgamated mess of text, with the only signifying parts are games in bold. I've changed this into a single, solitary list for each company, hopefully making things easier on the eye.

Here's a twofer for you: the multiplatform candidates. Here is where the other half of E3 comes, and it should be a hell of a show:

Most Likely:
  • The Music Force (Guitar Hero 6 and Rock Band 3)
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 Unvealed (story prediction at Joystiq as a comment)
  • The Force Unleashed II Full reveal
  • Dead Space 2 Unvealed
  • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Revealed
  • Red Faction: Armageddon Demoed
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops is the biggest thing on the show floor (if Halo Reach isn't there)
  • LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 gets hyped up for it's release in a few weeks
  • FEAR 3 inexplicably shown off (with an explanation on the '3' in the middle of the title)
  • Rage engine and game shown off
  • Rockstar Trifecta (Max Payne 3, LA Noire, Agent)
  • Assassin's Creed Brotherhood makes it's debut, showing everything 
Probably:
  • Metal Gear Solid: Rising better be there (BONUS: Raiden cosplayer actually looks/acts like Raiden, is pure ninja, and is seen all throughout the show floor)
  • Left 4 Dead 3 (skepticism: Vegas)
  • Condemned 3 makes it's debut
  • Mortal Kombat shown off (MK9, not Rebirth)
  • Mirror's Edge 2 (finally)
  • Doom 4 shows up, doesn't take place on Mars
  • Assassin's Creed III debuts, taking place Egypt, and you take on a whole new assassin
Unlikely:
  • Anything of interest from Valve (except for Source Engine 2)
  • Resident Evil 6 (Leon/Claire are main antagonists, Barry makes a comeback)
  • Grand Theft Auto V set in Vice City
  • Devil May Cry 5 starring Dante, takes place between 3 and 1
  • Ghostbusters 2 is a direct sequel to the first one
  • Prototype 2
  • Silent Hill's newest entry is just as creepy as the second one
  • Saboteur 2 shows up, shits all over the original
What Are You Thinking:
  • Prey 2 (what, it's been 4 years. I know the first one took 11 years, but there's hope)
  • Duke Nukem Forever (or, at least, a guy cosplaying as Duke near 2K's booth, causing mass hysteria)
  • Resident Evil 4 ported, again, to 360/PS3


Final Thoughts

E3 is looking like it could be an unstoppable beast this year, only surpasable by the year Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft show off their new home consoles. The only bad thing? About 75% of these games won't show.
