  1. Summer of Gaming 2020

    01 June 2020 - 06:00 PM

    So, with E3 not being a thing, every single news outlet of note doing their own "showcase" (IGN, GameSpot, The Escapist, GamesRadar, Geoff Keighley and the TGA crew, etc), and Sony hyping the crap out of their upcoming next-gen stuff, I figured it's time to make a separate thread, since we're getting a PS5 blowout on Thur, followed by a whole bunch of smaller events over the weekend and beyond.

    To kick things off, what do you think Sony could be packing? They've got an hour-long show supposedly focused on next-gen games and they're hyping it up to high heaven.

    Presuming they go E3 2016 level-hard (the E3 that gave us FF7R, Shenmue 3, and Kingdom Hearts 3 announcements), what kind of bombs do you expect them to drop this time?

    I'm gonna assume we see an average of 4 mins per game, and throw out some ideas; feel free to join in.

    1) Ok, so as a total no-brainer, Horizon Zero Dawn sequel. Game was a smash hit, a 2017 release and of all of Sony's 1st party studios, Guerilla's the one that released the game the longest ago.
    2) Sony Japan Studio is (heavily) rumoured to be working on a Silent Hill reboot.
    3) BluePoint is (equally heavily) rumoured to be working on a remake of Damon's Souls. Given their project was announced alongside the PS5, it being here would be a no-brainer
    4) Godfall. It's the first game that name-dropped PS5, even before Sony showed off the logo.
    -conversely, I don't think Quantum Error (a horror shooter from the Kings of Lorn devs, that's also coming to PS5) will be shown off here. It just feels too... small-time
    5) Insomniac are a multiple teams dev, so it's not impossible they'll have another title ready close to launch window. Spider-Man 2 being teased would make sense.
    6) Squeeenix is always present at Sony events. Will there be a new Final Fantasy? Or something new and crazy? (Or will they show off Babylon's Fall, finally?). Maybe Outriders? Not sure who's got the marketing rights for that. Avengers has its own stream on the 24th, so I wouldn't expect it to be a major presence.
    7) Atlus is the most Japanese-ass Japanese dev the PlayStation has that pumps out exclusives. That being said, they don't seem to be the kind to be on the cutting edge of tech, so who knows?
    8)COD feels kinda like a given.
    9) should FIFA get its own spotlight? Both this and COD feel like essential casual marketing.
    10) Ubi is likely to show off something, maybe. Watch Dogs legion feels pretty obvious as a "next-gen" processing power showcase (kinda being a generational leap the way Shadow of Mordor's Nemesis system was for this gen); but I wouldn't be too surprised, if Ubi show off their most ambitious game yet instead--that being, obviously BG&E2
    10)I'm gonna put "WB" here just because they have to show something eventually. "Most Hype" would probably be a Harry Potter AAA game; but I'm personally hoping for Batman annd/or Monolith
    11) I don't for one second believe this is gonna happen, but Starfield premiere would be insane
    12) slightly less unrealistic, I can see 2K teasing BioShock Next
    13)Some long announced Sony-sponsored project going next-gen only- be it WILD, Lost Soul Aside, or smth else
    14) if Cygames got their shit together, Project Awakening could be another "next gen showcase"
    15)New IP? Could be a new Naughty Dog IP, or something crazy from a different team within Japan Studio (apparently they've been poaching a lot of people from Konami)

    These are my crazy ideas anyone else?

    I hope you won't mind mate, but I copied and posted that "poem" thing you posted on the West Vs Russian interest thread.. You know, the one that starts off about how pathetic Europe is or has become.. Liked it so much that I had to post it. Keep up the good work on reporting about anything new.. Peace out to you friend..
