Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare takes in mid-21st century in futuristic Seoul, South Korea. You are Jack Mitchell and protagonist of the story. Hired by Jonathan Iron's (Kevin Spacey) who is the head of a military contracting outfit.

The game introduces a few new gadgets like: a grappling hook, Exo-Suit, grenades that highlight the enemies, and see-through wall scopes, just to name a few.

E3 2014 has now come and gone. Each year that I attend, there are more and more things to see and experience. This year there were a few things that I was not able to check out, either due to really long lines with a crazy wait time, or not enough time because I was waiting in another line for another game. Big hits in my book this year though:
The Order 1866, a PS4 only game but still worth the wait in line to check it out. The old Victorian era art style with the guns and what looked like Lycan monsters added to the intrigue. Still in its Alpha stage, the game does have a few things to improve on, but what I was able to play blew my mind.
Destiny, yet another console game and worth all the hype. The 2.5 hr granted us a sneak peak trailer, 2 rounds of 6V6 capture the flag matches, in which I played the Titan class. The special "ground pound" move was awesome when it was used, though you had to wait a while for the special to charge up.
Batman: Arkham Knight, another 2 hour wait in line, and worth the wait to see the demo played on the screen. All I can say is that the Batmobile is awesome and you can use it as an extension of Batman to take out enemies.
Alien Isolation, had not heard of this game till my friend started talking about it. We saw the line was short and waited, and waited. But so worth it, we actually got to play the demo version of what seems like the first level. Not sure if it was on the highest difficulty level but this game is super hard. I died 5 times trying to get out of the spawn zone, each time trying to sneak by an Alien. Though the best parts were the death animation, in which that same Alien that kills you comes up to the screen just as if you were facing it, its an experience.
Evolve; they definitely had a great booth for this game and a big crowd at all times. This was one of the more popular games that everyone wanted to check out. Great game, great graphics and looking forward to it on release. Getting to be the Goliath monster, I think is the best part of the game and trying to destroy the hunters.
Even though this years E3 may be over, I am really looking forward to what next years E3 brings us. If you are able to check it out, I would highly recommend going. And with that I leave you with a few more images from E3 2014, enjoy!
