Street Fighter 5 Reveals: Zangief/ Laura

The Zangief reveal trailer wasn't much of a surprise, given he's an original base character. Zangief is the same visually, but his mechanics have been slightly changed. If you're into a grapple characters, than the gief show be right up your alley.

 The Laura leaked was great but also disheartening, because the chance of more than 3 characters from Brazil is extremely low. I'm pretty sure Blanka will make an appearance as well, which destroys the possibility Sean will make a return.

Metal Gear Online 3 - (MGSV) The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Online 3  is sure to feature all of the assets of Phantom Pain, including military vehicles, motorcycles, and horses. It's predicted that the maps of MGO 3 will be very large. I'm guessing the size(or close to) of Battlefield, but with a better story in my opinion.

 With the addition of a balloon shooting turrets, teleporting,and rocket-power fists, The game carves out it's own little niche in a large FPS market. MGO 3 is going live Oct. 3, 2015 for major consoles, and Jan. 2016 for major PC platforms.

Pokken Tournament

Pokken is the arcade fighting-game version of the popular Pokemon game series,and also developed by Bandai Namco. The game is called Pokken Tekken in Germany,  since Pokken uses the same game mechanics as Tekken.

 Pokken is planned to be suited for controller play, instead of fighting sticks. The developers intended  the game to be casual,a nd less tactic-gameplay based.

Pokken has already released in Japanese arcades, and is slated for a Wii U released Q2 2016.
