Last year at E3 I got so excited when Phil Spencer came onto the stage with "one last announcement" dressed in a Rare Ltd. T-shirt. The announcement of Sea of Thieves was still great and all, but it's no Banjo Threeie. Here's hoping for this year!
I'm so pumped for July to actually be able to test out the Toy Box! It looks great so far.
This kind of reminds me of Final Fantasy Chronicles: My Life as a King (a downloadable game for the Wii). You would build up your town and send villagers on quests. Hope this is good!
The thought of paying full price honestly makes me shudder: $79.99.... it'll be $39.99 before the end of the month for sure.
@ThePope They re-balanced the campaign for solo and co-op. I believe they made it more difficult both in solo and co-op. But with a game like that what's changed most is the multiplayer, they've added a lot of community events and playlists, like Griffball that has re-vitalized the Halo 5 online community. I know how you feel, personally, I hated the campaign because I couldn't play it in split-screen, and the online multiplayer just didn't grip me.
Game reviews are basically just an extension of the film review system. It works for movies. They're static experiences. Meanwhile, video games are some of the most subjective media ever created. While reviews are also subjective, reviewers try to hide that subjectivity instead of embracing it, which is quite dangerous. Instead, a more anecdotal and embedded system of journalism, that evolves with the games would be a lot more intuitive and would even stay relevant for as long as a video...
Think about Halo 5. Which is a console game. They've balanced the campaign difficulty, fixed bugs, added community game modes, added fresh maps and launched new missions. The game isn't what it was when it launched for better or worse.
Portal 2 is already in the works! There was a tech demo released for the Vive!
That's awesome! 900$ seems a bit steep, but those would be pretty sweet for 3D movies.
You're in luck! I think that there's already a demo of Wipeout using VR technology, so a full release probably seems likely with Sony VR. Early rumours have also claimed that the package will include a bottle of Tylenol (just kidding about that last part).
I hope that MS announces a far more affordable version of the Hololens at E3. Right now developer kit Hololenses cost about $3000.
Absolutely! It's almost as realistic as the Columbia mission... blew my mind how similar they were.
Personally, I'm so tired of PC games being remade for consoles. Ark Survival Evolved, Layers of Fear, and the recent announcement of 7 Days to Die. These games just don't work on consoles: terrible controls and online functions that barely work imo.
Playing Medal of Honour Allied Assault was life back in the day. I would love it if we could see something like that with new tech.
World War 1 is so under-utilized in gaming. Verdun on Steam is proof of that; it's such a fun game, even though the graphics and polish aren't quite there.
Don't forget wall-running! You've got to have wall-running!
I totally agree! I find that the WW2 games that did come out in the past all were so focused on the same battles and types of missions (D-Day, Stalingrad, etc.) that there's still tonnes of unused material that's so ripe for gaming. The Saboteur (which isn't an FPS) showed just how unique of a world you can still craft in the WW2 genre, so here's hoping that more developers take the well of material and run with it.
Is that the motto from Nintendo Power or the power glove? Haha
I feel like there will be "no exclusives" is just something a company might say to ease tensions. Even if there's no technical reason for them -- like SNES games exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS -- if this hardware experiment flops, I'd expect Uncharted 5 to be PS4.5 exclusive.
I totally agree with you: the showcase reel is normally a part of the Nintendo Direct (and usually the most boring part) by putting it in a video alone, it was just depressing. Like honestly, why bother advertising "Super Meat Boy", as if the 2010 game based on a 2008 flash game would really drive console sales?
