E3 2013 is just around the corner, and as always it's a pretty MMO-heavy show. We've got a packed schedule coming up that Garrett will detail for you all on Monday, but for this week's List I thought it might be fun to count down the five games we're eager to see most of all on the show floor. This list doesn't include everything we'll see, and I want to make sure you know that just because a title doesn't hit this List, it doesn't mean we're not eager to see that game. Final Fantasy XIV, Defiance's DLC, Planetside 2, Ultima Forever, Wargaming's secret project, DayZ's progress, Snail's Black Gold, EVE, TERA and others are all on the schedule and have us wondering what they'll be showing. But for the games that we're most eager to catch a glimpse of, the following five titles have us on the edge of our proverbial seats.
5.) WildStar Online
WildStar won't really be on the show floor, butEDIT: WildStar will be playable on the floor, we were told after this writing and we'll be giving it a go. Also, we've been invited to a nearby location for a special development update presentation by none other than Jeremy Gaffney. We'll be filming the whole thing, so let's hope there's a lot of good stuff to talk about! Like: when will the beta be opened up for press so I can play my Cassian. I'm looking at you, Gaffer.
The first true TCGMMO (Trading Card Game MMO), Cryptozoic absolutely blew past their Kickstarter funding goals and are past the two million mark as of this writing. They asked for $300,000. Now, numbers aren't the only thing we can go by when judging the potential of a title, but these folks are very likely onto something as TCGs have been seeing a bit of a resurgence of late with the rise of mobile devices. Can an MMO based entirely on trading cards work? We'll know soon enough as we'll get a first-hand look at the game next week.
