Aight, Opening night impressions running post:

Gears 5 campaign trailer. It looks plenty pretty, but... I just don't care for Gears. Meh.

ooh, new game?
Car? Robots? Mechanical crap? Helicopter!
Whoa, a new Comanche game. THQN continues the retro-revival spree.
-multiplayer only, which is a bit lame. Still, good on THQN, bringing old franchises back.
-also from THQN, some drone racing game.

And now the new Need For Speed
-no loot boxes apparently. But you can customize your car through a phone app. Lol. EA, you just never change.

Hmm, a new space game. ah, the much rumoured Kerbal Space Program 2. That trailer is way too dramatic for the subject matter.

New game from Bamco-some new horror title. Bamco really likes funding niche horror titles. Oh, it's Little Nightmares II.

the Sony Predator game. teamibased shooter/sneaker. And then the predator shows up and insta-kills you.

Most hunter world expansion. There is an ice dragon. It is big and angry.

Oh, that shooter from Yager. The spacey one. Now in early access on EGS.

Ooh, Amplitude is making a historical TBS? Me likey. Sega is trying to make its own Civilization.

more Borderlands 3. Extra modes, okay.


Okay, an indie space game... ooh, everpace 2. Looks like a fun space shoot. I think I own the original.

FIFA going all street footy this year. That's an interesting take.

Ooh, the Disintegration trailer. Sci-fi things with a speeder bike?
Oh, this looks like Destiny, but with mechs.
-hmm, apparently there's some strategy elements in this as well? Intriguing.

The darksiders spin-off trailer. The game's being made by the original series creator, so I will buy it.

Hmm, the stadia exclusive, "Gylt"d

And another horror game. There's quite a few of those.

Let's watch the Epic sizzle reel.
-the 2 grabs are Magic the Gathering Arena and the next Abe's Odyssey game, "Soulstorm"

This just in: Sony bought Insomniac. RIP Sunset Overdrive 2.
-also, Erica is game that exists and out now. Kudos to Sony.

Anno DLCs... where's a new Warlords game, Ubi?


A pirate game... huh? Port Royale 4. Okay then, a new Kalypso city-builder.

Iron Harvest- not just EGS! Woot!
Gimme my GOG copy!
-also, the trailers looks slick.

New CoD. Eh.

More Death Stranding weirdness. I confess to only half paying attention to this. just odd, so much interesting oddness.

Welp, that's it. Nothing super-mindblowing, but a decent showing.

Seriously impressed with how the Switch port of Witcher 3 is looking. Yeah, they've had to make compromises, but still, it looks completely playable in handheld mode and still looks pretty decent, too.

Is death stranding even a game? I have never been on the hype train for this and I keep waiting for them to tell me something about the game and after a while I stopped even following the news and trailers because I think its all just nonsense, with game journos trying to spin shit in page clicks as best they can. Still my friend last night wanted to watch the new trailer and it starts with the main character peeing! He walks up a cliff, delivers a package and than falls of a cliff. Okay!

So what's the game about? Is this add campaign working? I get less and less interested the more they share with us

The trailers are catering to that specific kind of Kojima fan who loves his weird and creative game design ideas. the Metal Gear series is full of this stuff.

I still feel burned by MGS5 so I'm not overly hyped myself but you can expect a game that is unlike your average AAA game.

It will have combat and boss fights but it will also have weird shit.

MGS has always had zany shit and plot but it still had at its core a game that was about action and stealth. The former helped make the latter stand out but the latter was the game.

This death stranding stuff is making the game dead on arrival for me if they don't show some substance soon

Or, you know, you can just wait and watch the thousands of reviews featuring gameplay.

Sure and that's what I will do I just find it odd that their teasers are killing hype rather than enhancing it. I don't think I'm alone. I think the majority of players and articles are like wtf

The peeing actually has a function. I guess where you drain the lizard, mushrooms grow. So I'm guessing they are used in some crafting aspect of the game.

Dying Light 2 extended gameplay footage to be shown August 26 Ė watch it here

Dying Light is, rightfully so, in the discussion as one of the best games of this current console generation. If you haven't played it, you really should. I'm interested in where they are going to take it in Dying Light 2. The 'consequences' element has me intrigued. While not a new concept, it sounds like they are taking this idea and maximizing the noticeable effect choices you make has on your play-through.

The release date is somewhere around early 2020.

I'm watching the demo now. It looks amazing. But either that demo is a vertical slice they manipulated or I'm confused as to how the game adapts to a diversion like the player falling into that Dark zone. From what I could tell you could have avoided that but it also seemed like a scripted story segment.

Also, the city looks amazing. The open world design in the first Dying Light is one of the best I've experienced in any game I've played, but in what they are showing in this DL2 game play demo, it looks even better.

Metacritic doesnít quite reflect it (currently 81 there), but CONTROL, Remedyís (Max Payne, Alan Wake, Quanum Break) new action-adventure game, is being lavishly praised in all the reviews Iíve read so far, both for narrative and gameplay.

Looking good. Also, this is why you don't trust people calling themselves "peace keepers" in a post-apoc situation.

Since it's 505 publishing, I'm presuming it'll hit GOG once the EGS exclusivity is up (like Ashen and Sinking City are). By then whatever expansions are launching as Play Station exclusive will also be out for PC, most likely.

Decay of Logos is out on Friday, and GreedFall and Devil's Hunt are coming in September. Those are my picks for autumn games, and those should take me up to the holiday sales- unless THQN finally announces a release date for Biomutant- wouldn't shock me if they go for late Nov/early Dec again like they did with Darksiders III

Bloodlines 2 demo with developer commentary

Combat looks about as janky as the original, but that game is still one of my top 5 of all time, so I don't care. The writing team here is amazing, and I like what I'm hearing about the actual RPG-y bits.

A short look at some of the systems, with a developer commentary

Some copies were apparantly available early in NYC retail, and now there are some preview opinions out in the wild already. The buzz seems to be mostly positive.

I canít get the video to load past 25 seconds. If I get it will definitely be on XB for 4K. Sekiro visuals were sick and I need more eye candy.

Not sure if this game has any multiplayer function or not.
