Saw it. It was a short teaser but pretty much anything from CroTeam makes me excited.

I didn't really like Serious Sam 3 that much. I think I never finished it because the difficulty, mostly a side effect of the health system, became stupid. But I love the spirit of the Serious Sam games. They're just dumb fun. Hopefully the new one is less Call of Duty and more 90s "run backwards and dump".

Here's the trailer by the way_

I still find it so hard to believe that this is the same developer which made The Talos Principle.

hmmm> You know what could be a real win for Microsoft?

If they could convince Rockstar to make the Xbox version of RDR remastered and RDR2 "play anywhere" titles.

THAT might actually convince me to upgrade to Win 10.

I wouldn't doubt it. They've shown something every year the last 2-3 years.

I can't quite remember the speculation on Sony's reveal schedule. Most likely The Last of Us 2 will come out in either the spring or fall of 2019, so this would probably be the time to show us a bit of gameplay.

I was really impressed with the footage last year, with the woman about to get hanged. It looked incredibly photo realistic. Sony games really are a extremely technically impressive.

Ubisoft Montpelier had another livestream about BGE2.



More news coming @ E3

I'm very cautious about this, because, similar to skull & Bones, the focus is very much on group/co-op play.

As long as solo play is possible, I'm expecting this will still be worth checking out.

On the one hand, a bunch of stuff Ancel is saying sounds like a No Man's Sky, but with an actual story. Which is definitely worrying, because games that promise massive world's tend to have little content, and expect "the joy of discovery" to make up for lack of content.

On the other hand: for one, ubi isn't stupid, and they'd have seen the skeptical reaction to both NMS AND Sea of Thieves, and they'll have had their own Skull & Bones to test the concept first.
Also, y'know, it's Ubi. The undisputed kings of filler content for open worlds. While we can argue whether said content will be any good, I somehow doubt that we will ever again be able to complain that a ubi open world game is lacking stuff to do.

So I guess we'll see in a month. I'll actually be off that Monday, so I should get to see the livestream. It's one of the more intriguing titles to be sure.

Also this:
http://www.eurogamer...igital-showcase

Looks like Squeeenix is back to being its own voice @ E3 again.

Against all hope, maaaybe they'll let one of the former Eidos studios do smth with one of the Eidos IPs again?
or maybe they'll be publishing some other dev's stuff again (like Life is Strange)

Editagain: also. PC Gaming show is a thing that's happening on the 11th as well.

Here's hoping we'll hear what Obsidian will be working on next after Deadfire.

Lets test this twitter thing out:



EDIT: Hmm doesn't seem to load. Here's the link: https://twitter.com/...219391997755392

EDIT 2: Now it works. Scroll down on the image for list of games.

A well known source on rumors and leaks posted the above.

It's subject to a bit ofmistrust since there for example isn't a Forza Horizon 4 yet.

But the really curious one is Rage 2. There's been some speculation that DOOM 2: Hell on Earth could come out this fall but what if they did a quick one on us and revamped RAGE? A new Rage with a better vision would be awesome.

I'm also surprised that Just Cause 4 is next up from Avalanche. JC3 was not a good game but on the other hand I do love blowing stuff up in an open world sandbox.

Errr. Aren't the ex-avalanche guys working on Biomutant now?

Did some wiki-ing and answered my own question.
Avalanche is still an independent studio, and they own the just cause IP, so it's possible Squeeenix and them agreed to make a new one (although according to the wiki, they were more interested in going into self-publishing)

Also, looked up THQ Nordic and Experiment 101, and holy crap, does THQ Nordic own a crapton of IPs. Including some really interesting ones.

Avalanche isn't closed. Just like any large AAA developer people come and go.

Wow. I haven't thought of Rage since I played it all those years ago. I rented it from Blockbuster (yeah memba them?) when they had a deal where you could rent games and keep them for as long as you want and swap them out for like the price of a couple movie rentals a month (I think it was like $20).

Anyway, I really enjoyed Rage (never finished it). It reminded me of Borderlands and it had some of the better dune buggy diving physics/experience for its time. That's really weird they're thinking of doing a sequel now. I'm not sure if I buy it.

I can imagine a Zenimax exec sitting at a table with a list of IPs they own, picking one blindly.

They could just do a fallout clone and slap the Rage IP on it just for fun. Y'know, kinda how they did with Prey.

Edit: Bethesda's Twitter is now teasing May 14th with Big Ben, a rocket, and a bunch of pink:

So it feels like that Walmart thing touched a nerve...

Other things that are to be presented @ E3: (according to one of the random YouTube clips that's playing in the background while I work)

Remedy is gonna show a new 3rd person cinematic action IP- xbone/PC/PS4

Capcom has an action/adventure for xbone, PC and switch. Could either be a non-sony exclusive, OR (my personal suspicion), a former Sony exclusive being ported to other platforms.

Beth's been teasing more and more stuff since that Walmart fiasco, so it sounds like they'll confirm Rage 2 on Mon. (According to PC gamer and the comments therein)


There's also a lot of random buzz that Rocksteady's next game will be announced and that it's a superman game.
Now I'm not really a big comics person, but superman strikes me as the blandest possible protagonist, so I'm finding it really difficult to stir up any excitement for that, if it's true.

About the Bethesda teasers I don't think they are all teasing Rage. I think each picture signifies a different game. Big Ben I am not sure about. Maybe more Dishonored. The rocket I think is Starfield. The Scavenger is surely Rage. Not sure what the last one is, probably something unknown.

Ooh, Monday will be exciting. So glad I have that day off!

I'll probably miss some of the Sunday stuff due to soccer. And EA... is there any reason to even bother with EA?

Oh yeah. Lame ass EA thinks their first to present gives them a leg up, when really everyone is marking Monday and Tuesday as must watch days.

You guys think it will be heavy on VR and 4K/UltraHD this year or more just about games for hardcore gamers?

Microsoft will probably say 4k a million times again, because they don't have any 1st party games (except Crackdown 3) announced as of yet, so "rock-solid 4K" is their current go-to mantra.
Even if they roll out a half-dozen new exclusives (and who knows, maybe they'll give me reasons to consider upgrading to Win 10 for the "play anywhere" titles) , I doubt there'll be anything groundbreaking coming out before 2019, so I think for now "the best place to play multi-plats" AND "play all your old favorites, now in 4K" will remain big buzzwords for them.

I'm sure most publishers will devote some presentation time to VR, just like last year (except probably EA, cuz, you know, no one is ready for "VR as a service" )

Eurogamer is actually reporting that Sony outlined the 1st party games their presentation will focus on- there's 4 of them and they are (shock!)

Death Stranding
Ghost of Tsushima
Spider-Man
The Last of Us

Along with "exciting announcements from third-party partners" .

Starting to get pretty hyped for what ever Bethesda unveils tomorrow. I love shooters and I love open world games so it would be hard for them to put me off Rage 2 completely but on the other hand I hope they've evolved the games concept significantly.

From the speculation I have read some think the studio might be Rebellion. Would make sense, they have experience with open world games, though I consider them decidedly middle tier "AA". Then again maybe all they need is more money.

Also saw some speculation on Shadows Die Twice on ResetEra, From Software's new game. Supposedly an insider has stated it's not a new souls/blood-like game but rather a new kind of game that harkens back to some of their older titles. What ever that means.

Microsoft have been talking up their conference. Something about it being their biggest presentation yet or something like that. I suspect that they are going to pull a Sony and unveil a ton of projects that are 2-4 years out.

They probably wont have anything this year besides Crackdown 3 (fingers crossed), Forza Horizon 4 and Ori 2 but I bet they'll tease Fable, Gears, Halo and a handful of unknowns that will make them look good until fans realize their portfoiio is going to remain lean for the next few years.

My dark horse unveil is that they do a re-launch of Halo: Master chief collection. They'll throw in ODST, Reach, Halo 5 and offer some kind of demo/pre-order incentive for Halo 6.

I did not know Bethesda was announcing anything tomorrow. Do you have a time and link?

Also, I never played Ori and the Blind Forest, but read excellent reviews about it. It's doesn't justify buying an Xbox One X though, does it? You pumped for Ori and the Will of the Wisps, or no?
