Not seeing more of Until Dawn worries me, especially since Sony heavily pushed their indie horror showings at E3 last week. Outlast and Daylight were there, so what happened to that teen slasher you promised us? Huh? HUH?

Ugh.

Being disappointed with Valve for not showing a game is a huge waste of time, but it’s been four years and I want a new Left 4 Dead. I could go on, but Gabe’s far too busy counting his Steam money to remember Valve makes video games, so what’s the point?

I didn’t expect Konami to show us a new Silent Hill, mostly because I believe the series is in a bit of trouble. For Konami to green-light a new SH, I suspect it’s going to either need to be cheap to produce — an arcade title, maybe — or it’ll need something exciting to make it more profitable. Like, say, involvement from Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima. After the (minor) duds that were Downpour, the HD Collection and Book of Memories, this franchise needs something to make it exciting again.

It’s obviously a wee bit too early to be hoping for the reveal of a sequel to ZombiU, especially after Ubisoft recently made it clear they won’t be making more Wii U games until Nintendo does something to boost the console’s awful sales.

There’s some hope for it yet. Last month, Ubisoft confirmed an “early prototype” for the game is in development. I say they slap a big red approval on that bad boy, quietly remove the U from the title and bring it to Sony and Microsoft’s platforms.

The honorable mentions! First up, Dead Island 2. Dying Light is the only reason I’m okay with Techland not mentioning a true Dead Island sequel. As amazing as their next-gen zombie parkour game looks, I really do hope they continue their other zombie franchise. I’ve had a lot of fun with it so far, and it’d be sad to see it go away prematurely.

I feel like Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs also deserves an honorable mention. It’s coming soon, so another freaky teaser trailer would’ve been nice. But honestly, they don’t need to do a single thing to sell me on this. I’ll be getting it on day one.

How about you? Let me know what horror games you wanted to see at this year’s E3 in the comments below!

    On the topic of inSANE, del Toro said to the Toronto Sun in January this year that he’s in talks with a big company which responded to the game and what was he trying to accomplish and also that some of the devices of the game need to be updated.

    I don’t know if you wrote about that or not, but this information keeps me calm for some reason. I still believe that we’ll actually see inSANE someday. Its potential is huge. Del Toro is a creator with one of the most original minds I’ve ever witnessed and he loves Lovecraft, so if this game and the movie adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness under his supervision became real, my head would probably exploded.

      Yeah, I remember he found a developer back in November, but in January he was still seeking a publisher. Also, sadly, his Mountains of Madness film was put on hold because it shared too many similarities with Prometheus. :(

      • Raziel_cz

        I know about Mountains of Madness. It’s a shame, Prometheus wasn’t even good.

    Great article, but I would like to point out that Kingdom Hearts III was never unlikely. The way the series is set up is that the main games are the numbered games. Those are the ones that are all story progression (save for Dream Drop Distance). All of the other games are backstory (once again, except for Dream Drop Distance). The games have been a slow build, but the payoff is going to be huge.

    • Adam Dodd

      I didn’t mean KH3 was unlikely, I meant it’s reveal was unlikely. Even its director said he didn’t want to reveal it (yet).

    Good lord! Great list! You covered everything on my wish list AND my “where the heck is it?!!” list.

    i really wanted to see something from Until Dawn. the good news is it still has a 2013 release date window. and in the Supermassive Games website it’s listed as “coming soon”. no clue why they wouldn’t show it at e3. but there are many up coming event like TGS, PAX, Gamescom, and Comic-Con to show the game. i am curious about that whole “endless summer” thing. i read somewhere that a Rage sequel was put on hold or something so that they could work on a new Doom game so i’m sure that one will be shown sometime in the future.

    • Adam Dodd

      Did you read that here? Unfortunately, despite being a solid game, Rage 2 won’t be happening. No more sweet, sweet Wingstick action for me. :(

  • DarrelDreadful

    Left 4 Dead 3. Endless Summer. & Insane I think were the ones I was hoping to hear something about. Its great to finally know that Mirrors Edge 2 actually exists, and all the horror games that have been revealed so far have officially made me excited to become a gamer again. I took a long break, but Im putting my money aside now lol

  • ThunderDragoon

    Great list, Adam. I need Until Dawn in my mouth.

    • Adam Dodd

      Too late. It’s already in mine. I’ve stuck it to the roof of my mouth so I can savor it all day long.

      • ThunderDragoon

        No! Give it to me. T_T

  • bambi_lives8980

    Dead Island : Riptide isn’t considered a true DI sequel? If I’m missing something or sound retarded by asking that I’m sorry, but I only played a little bit of the game before having to return it to Redbox. But it felt like a sequel to me…?

    • Adam Dodd

      It’s strange, I know, but it’s more of a Dead Island 1.5. Even the team behind it (both Deep Silver and Techland) said they don’t consider it a “true” sequel. More of a spin-off.

  • Gremloblin

    I’m looking forward to playing Remothered. It’s that new Clock Tower game rumored for the PC and Wii-U. http://clocktower.wikia.com/wiki/Remothered

  • austinap

    Adam, i’m pretty certain that Until Dawn is still happening.i hope. :( didnt supermassive games say last month it’s still very much in development? maybe they don’t wanna give too much away, or still don’t have much to show? ugh i need more NOW.
