microsoft, square enix, nintendo are the main ones to keep an eye on this year imo, unless you really like doom or watch dogs

ciderpress, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:42 (six months ago) link

i really like doom

devvvine, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:43 (six months ago) link

I'm only here for the new From game (supposedly...Viking souls?)

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:44 (six months ago) link

yeah that'll be at microsoft if its real and it sounds like it is

ciderpress, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:46 (six months ago) link

xp oh cool, pretty out of touch with the rumour mill atm

devvvine, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:46 (six months ago) link

Viking George Martin Souls?

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:49 (six months ago) link

yeah thats the rumor, dunno how much souls but it's by fromsoft so probably some

ciderpress, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 21:50 (six months ago) link

I only care about the PS4 counterprogramming.

google did their presentation today but it wasn't very interesting

larian (divinity: original sin devs) are making baldurs gate 3

ciderpress, Thursday, 6 June 2019 22:50 (six months ago) link

bunch of stuff leaking today. people confirming the fromsoft game. plus a new tales of game, which is to me what a new fromsoft game is to some of you folks

ELDEN RING

(this will be my first exposure to A GRRM story, and this was pretty much the only way it was my to happen)

loved elden ehringreich in solo

Mack, who is blind (he has no eyes) (bizarro gazzara), Saturday, 8 June 2019 07:49 (six months ago) link

Had no idea the From/George Martin game was only rumored, so I guess I have trouble thinking of its confirmation as a leak, per se. Any more than the confirmation of, say, Luigi's Mansion 3 is a leak. Regardless, we still don't know anything about Elder Ring, right? Like to what extent Martin even worked on it, or where it's set, or what the gameplay is like? There's still lots of info to be released.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 12:23 (six months ago) link

the rumor was norse mythology inspired rpg, more open world-y than other fromsoft games

the leaked webpage had no screencaps like the one for Tales did, so it's likely the trailer will just be a logo teaser and not a full reveal

ciderpress, Saturday, 8 June 2019 15:08 (six months ago) link

the rumor was norse mythology inspired rpg, more open world-y than other fromsoft games

I'm confused what actually leaked, because yeah, isn't an open world RPG game with involvement from Martin what people were expecting? And we still don't know any more than that?

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 17:05 (six months ago) link

i mean, we now know that it exists and isnt some weird shit someone made up

ciderpress, Saturday, 8 June 2019 17:21 (six months ago) link

Let's gooooooooo!

lol @ keanu in cyberpunk

devvvine, Sunday, 9 June 2019 20:24 (six months ago) link

i forgot to post in here but there was pretty much zero in that presentation that was exciting to me except for the tales of arise trailer which we already knew about

ciderpress, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:07 (six months ago) link

found the from x grrm collabo trailer pretty disappointing, no tangible sense of setting or feel

devvvine, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:12 (six months ago) link

I was surprised by PSO2 finally getting western release, then not surprised to find out it's only NA for now. Thanks Sega :/

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:15 (six months ago) link

not sure i'm the audience for these games but i'm alway amazed at what a terrible job they seem to do of selling gears and halo

electric deer game seemed pretty chill.

devvvine, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:18 (six months ago) link

Elden Ring is PC and Xbox exclusive? Ugh.

circa1916, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:21 (six months ago) link

not an exclusive

devvvine, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:24 (six months ago) link

nah anything that doesnt say otherwise will be on ps4

ciderpress, Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:30 (six months ago) link

honestly, a new from exclusive might pull me to buy a system so i'm happy to hear that

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:52 (six months ago) link

lol at that trailer though, i know nothing more than i already did

keanu's presser is deeply amusing; i was already sold on 2077 tho

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 9 June 2019 22:57 (six months ago) link

Oh. The fact the Elden Ring announcement came via the Microsoft presentation and said PC and XBOX threw me.

I don’t get the love for The Witcher, but I’m def interested in Cyberpunk. Fuck a “cinematic trailer” though.

circa1916, Sunday, 9 June 2019 23:17 (six months ago) link

I don't want movie stars in my games.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 9 June 2019 23:22 (six months ago) link

xp i mean they already put out that 40 minute gameplay video

devvvine, Sunday, 9 June 2019 23:41 (six months ago) link

Like a year ago. I just don’t give a damn about non-gameplay game footage.

circa1916, Sunday, 9 June 2019 23:52 (six months ago) link

seriously, it's just like getting a preview of cutscenes.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 9 June 2019 23:56 (six months ago) link

lol battle royale mode for Fallout 76

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Monday, 10 June 2019 00:50 (six months ago) link

Hey I’ll give F76 a shot this week for free.

circa1916, Monday, 10 June 2019 00:55 (six months ago) link

kinda dig the tone of that new shinji mikami game but again no gameplay so who knows what it'll be

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 01:02 (six months ago) link

this crowd tho

Pretty lame line up. All chips on DOOM this year I guess.

circa1916, Monday, 10 June 2019 01:15 (six months ago) link

yep i am very excited to play doom

devvvine, Monday, 10 June 2019 01:46 (six months ago) link

Mixed feelings about how nakedly arcadey new DOOM looks. Thought they did a good job of blending the playground elements into the world in the last one.

Also can’t see this multiplayer having any legs.

circa1916, Monday, 10 June 2019 01:53 (six months ago) link

jeff gerstmann is more enthusiastic about the demo he played of it than i've seen him on any game in the past couple years

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 02:07 (six months ago) link

Wolfenstein Youngblood trailer features some great comedic timing.

Doom Eternal looks ... kind of questionable. It's like they redesigned the enemies to look less scary.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 June 2019 02:10 (six months ago) link

Xp cool. Generally find him to have good takes.

I’ve got faith new DOOM will be a blast, just found the new footage to not really hype me up like I expected it to.

circa1916, Monday, 10 June 2019 02:28 (six months ago) link

really excited for cyberpunk w/ keanu almost started a thread

Mordy, Monday, 10 June 2019 03:48 (six months ago) link

I know it shrunk, but I’m surprised by the lack of mainstream E3 coverage. I just read (on Polygon) that Sony and Nintendo both skipped E3 this year and Microsoft announced a new console and, yet, this morning CNBC mentioned E3 in passing but didn’t mention any of the announcements. I didn’t see anything in today’s paper. You’d think a Microsoft console announcement would be a big deal. I recall Microsoft’s Xbox One announcement was everywhere.

Last year I worried Cyberpunk, Starfield, and Elder Scrolls 6 would minimize future announcements until they are released (for me) and I think that’s right. I don’t care about anything right now except Nintendo announcements. 🤷‍♂️

Allen (etaeoe), Monday, 10 June 2019 13:40 (six months ago) link

I don’t know if this is the appropriate ILG thread, but I’m really skeptical about the specifications Microsoft and Sony have announced. Even if the the systems cost, for example, 7-or-800 USD, they look very optimistic. 4 GB of GDDR6 will eat half that price. Likewise with the 1 GB SSD they described.

Allen (etaeoe), Monday, 10 June 2019 13:44 (six months ago) link

i'm more skeptical about the claims that the new consoles could hit 120fps given that today's consoles, even the beefed-up ps4 pro and xbox one x, can struggle to hit 60fps on the most ambitious games

God may judge you but his sins outnumber your own. (bizarro gazzara), Monday, 10 June 2019 13:47 (six months ago) link

hard to imagine either company launching at much more than $500 given certain past failures, they'll eat a loss if they have to

120fps / 8k talk is just 'the box will be able to output those', major games will not use them. the use case there is current gen ongoing service games getting a fps boost e.g. overwatch

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 13:55 (six months ago) link

also elder scrolls 6 is probably like 4-5 years away so don't let that one minimize other announcements for you

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 14:27 (six months ago) link

at a certain point the fps and Ks is reaching a point of diminishing returns but I guess that's all console makers can really push at this point is more more more

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 10 June 2019 15:37 (six months ago) link

but RAYTRACING tho omg it's gonna make call of fifa: halo edition look incredible

God may judge you but his sins outnumber your own. (bizarro gazzara), Monday, 10 June 2019 15:39 (six months ago) link

anything beyond 4k is severely diminishing returns if you're playing on a tv that fits in your house

same with 60fps if you're not a pro FPS player

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 15:56 (six months ago) link

my probable goty trails of cold steel 3 out in september

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 17:26 (six months ago) link

I just have this creeping sense of dread about Cyberpunk, like it'll be technically breathtaking but really crass and offensive, and the developer will half-heartedly apologise for doing sly shoutouts to neo-nazis three or four more times before release

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Monday, 10 June 2019 17:27 (six months ago) link

i think that's certainly a possibility

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 17:52 (six months ago) link

does projekt red have any history of horrible shit of that variety?

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 10 June 2019 17:56 (six months ago) link

yes their social media ppl have done a lot of wink wink nod nod at gamergaters in the past

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:02 (six months ago) link

It's mostly been from a community manager who was fired months after snarky appropriation of trans language and making vaguely pro-GG tweets. (Said manager then ended up at an openly alt-right place.) xp

i think it's unlikely that it was a single rogue employee but i think its also likely that they'll keep that shit out of their public facing stuff going forward so we won't ever know for sure

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:06 (six months ago) link

a Wii game announced on stage at E3, whatyearisit.jpg

ubi doing that thing again where they trick people into thinking a watch dogs game is going to be good via a concept that sounds too ambitious to be true

ciderpress, Monday, 10 June 2019 23:27 (six months ago) link

FF7 remake gameplay looked...fun??? like xenoblade or tales combat kinda but with a bullet time button

watch dogs 2 was fun u savage xp

I read that as you calling somebody a “savage xp”

I thought GOOIGI was making fun of some GOOGLE logo.

Luigi's Mansion, Hollow Knight sequel and Animal Crossing things in the next several months to look forward to. Breath of the Wild 2 and Metroid Prime 4 (or remastered trilogy?) things to look forward to in the distant future. Witcher 3 on Switch seems surprising, given I just watched that Digital Foundry video on how many compromises it would take to get that to run on Switch. Fortunately, I already bought it on PS4. Doom and Wolfenstein ... I'll debate which system to purchase on (better graphics vs. gyro, essentially). Some OK stuff, though!

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 11 June 2019 17:25 (five months ago) link

seiken densetsu 3 aka trials of mana getting an official english release (plus a remake) is a big deal, that game's had similar status to mother 3 for 2 decades

ciderpress, Tuesday, 11 June 2019 17:32 (five months ago) link

I've never played Animal Crossing but watched other people play for a few minutes. (btw, the upcoming game got pushed to next year). The trailer + treehouse gameplay are very underwhelming. Slightly more things to do. Slightly better graphics. Is it really that hard to come up with something truly innovative for Animal Crossing?

ilm jive mind (FlopsyDuck), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 19:02 (five months ago) link

i don't think that's a goal for animal crossing, it's an iterative series. there are 10 million people who just want the game as they know it on current hardware.

ciderpress, Tuesday, 11 June 2019 19:11 (five months ago) link

i think when you die you should have to make it back to your bloodstain or you lose all your bells, sick of all the casuals shitting up AC

lol adam

my youtube post:

CaptainLorax
They need to have an option to switch to isometric (diagonal) view.

Furbyy
Why? They’ve always used this rolling hills perspective in animal crossing. It’s an iconic part of the franchise’s visual identity.

CaptainLorax
It would still be rolling hills, just a different angle.

ilm jive mind (FlopsyDuck), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 19:51 (five months ago) link

yeah, i'm gonna have to buy that Seiken Densetsu collection out of principle. it might not even be that good anymore but it's like unearthing a lost film
