E3 2017 is just around the corner. It’s less then 6 weeks away at the time of this writing. It sure seems like it came back around fast. E3 is always an exciting time of the year for all gamers. And I’m sure this year will be no different. This list is a combination of predictions and hopes for E3. It's also in no particular order. Here are 10 things to look forward to in E3 2017.

1. Bethesda Conference

Bethesda has been on a roll in recent years. Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Doom, Fallout, Wolfenstein, and most recently Prey. Holy crap you guys. It’s a good time to be a Bethesda fan. Of course, they are going to have their own conference again as they have been. An interesting thing to note: they have sent out press material which includes a map of a fictional amusement park. In the map there are areas that represent several of their main series. Take a look for yourself:

Notice those two “under construction” areas? Wonder what those are going to be? Current popular theories include a new Wolfenstein or Evil Within. I’m hoping that it might be a new ip altogether. Or a new Elder Scrolls. With as much content as these guys have been cranking out it should be interesting to see what they announce at their conference.

2. Project Scorpio

Don’t kill me just yet. I realize this is not Playstation related. But a wise man once said to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Or something like that. In all seriousness I’m interested in what Microsoft has coming for Project Scorpio.

They released some specs a few weeks ago and it looks like a very powerful machine. More powerful then the PS4 Pro in fact. I’m sure they will mention something about it at E3 and I'm curious to see what they plan on doing with all that power. Is it going to be the next big thing? Is Microsoft going to overun Sony’s lead? Competition breeds innovation as they say so this might this might be a good thing.
