This sounds interesting. One of the better “highlights” of the disappointing show. I’m eager to hear more about it.

"One of the better “highlights” of the disappointing show."

It was FAR better than Sony´s. With better looking games also.

This game´s gonna be amazing!

pwnmaster300067d ago

It really wasn’t tho lol.

I’m sorry I had high hopes for this show and it didn’t live up to the hype. My fault on that. Should of came in with lower expectation

Marquinho67d ago

I'm gonna be honest here. PS5 show was better... but not because of content, but because of how they carried it.

MS had a big opportunity to fuel hype with this game, Fable and Forza, but all them (not mentioning Hellblade, with zero new content) were shown with confusing/short teasers or in this case, the trailer stopped just when I was ready to enjoy some next gen gameplay.

Said this, Series X launch lineup is still stronger than PS5... I guess they're saving the bullets for E3 2021, as it seems that none of these games, apart from Halo, are gonna be released before it.

Nice Joke Obscure_Observer!

SamTheGamer67d ago

"Series X launch lineup is still stronger than PS5" Whatttt???? 😂😂😂

DarkBlaze2567d ago

I've always been a primary xbox gamer and that still might not change but ps despite not really blowing my mind with their event it was miles better than this. Phil and Aaron talked about how they heard and was listening to feedback after the May event but I don't see any lessons learned. Barely any gameplay and my favorite damn franchise that's always been known for pushing graphical boundaries looks like a plastic potato. I'm honestly disappointed and pissed with xbox right now. Did they have some good interesting reveals? Yes but could they have done miles better? Hell yes. Nothing they showed makes me think I need a series X over my current one x and that's really what I was looking for. Might just keep my one x and get the ps5 digital edition to start with until they get their shit together.

oh my

Ladies and gentleman, the art of living in an alternate universe

0rbital7167d ago

yep id agree, was a great show, and i will be getting both ps5 and xsx

Marquinho67d ago


I do think so yeah... despite of this badly carried event. What's the launch lineup of PS5?

Hakuoro67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

"It was FAR better than Sony´s. With better looking games also."

Heh, no.

And at least Sony had the balls to show game play on console.You're bragging about cinematic trailers for games which are clearly not coming out during launch window. Meanwhile Sony showed a bunch of games that are more than likely 2020-2021 games.

By the time Microsoft actually releases these games Sony will have shown a whole new batch of games. Heck we might even see more games during PlayStation's rumored August event.

And I disagree that anything they showed looked better than what Sony showed, in fact if anything what I took from Microsoft's show was that graphically SX isn't going to be much if any different than PS5. Especially if they have to be so reluctant to show real gameplay.

Microsoft again is still way behind Sony in development because Phil spent the 3/4 of last generation talking about how exclusives weren't relevant and only decided games were important in 2018. While Sony has had it's studios working on games non-stop and are ready to go day 1 with actual next gen PlayStation 5 games.

throne67d ago

way better than sonys? yeah you're reaching

"I guess they're saving the bullets for E3 2021"
And there it is, the infamous "wait till E3".

Zodiac67d ago

How was it not better? In terms of actual gameplay shown, Microsoft showed more. Aside from that they were both just cgi trailers and announcements with no real release dates. But yeah, actual gameplay puts this showcase above the ps5 showcase.

MajorLazer67d ago

Take off the fanboy goggles. This show was a massive dissapoint, and this is coming from someone who wants MS to produce great games again.

Marquinho67d ago


Not this time. The content was there... they just didn't elaborate on it.

They've saved way too much. If they presented the exact same games, but with some attractive gameplay, I'd rate it 9/10, but MS limited themselves to show very brief bits of their games except from Halo while giving a lot of time to games like Tetris... and that made it frustrating.

It doesn't change a bit the fact that Microsoft is building a solid lineup... they just didn't show virtually anything new about them. They probably didn't felt like it was necessary looking at what Sony was offering for this year? I don't know.

kreate67d ago

But the games look like xbox 360/one games. Doesnt look next gen at all.

CaptainHenry91661d ago

It was probably the worse show I've seen from Microsoft in a long time. They hyped this show up and it was disappointing

Yeah this game looks to be really hood. Pretty excited for this one.

phoenixwing67d ago

Hopefully this is a better version of elder scrolls with good combat. Definitely have my attention with spell and sword in each hand. that's how i play on skyrim and oblivion.

pwnmaster300067d ago

I don’t remember being able to use spell and sword in obilivion.
But at the same time I played as a wood elf archer..
Still pretty excited for it.
Say what you want with Bethesda but their elderscroll game is on point and hope this game can match it.

phoenixwing67d ago

you give bethesda too much credit. i'm expecting them to exceed it.

Kados67d ago

In Oblivion, you could cast magic regardless of what was equipped. Magic was set independant of weapons/shields and you would just put your offhand away during the casting animation.

TheRealTedCruz67d ago

Bethesda at least used to make interesting worlds with a lot of player choice.
ES and Fallout are just glorified looter games now, with weak combat.

Prubar67d ago

Wow legitimately shocked Obsidian was one of the studios to announce something. We knew they were working on a AAA rpg but with Outer worlds release last year and Grounded this year I wasn’t expecting anything from them.

RaidenBlack67d ago

Honestly, the last section of the trailer reminded me of Deep Down.

battlegrog67d ago

well they do have 2 teams i believe so makes sense

Obscure_Observer67d ago

3 Teams actually. Team Avowed, Team The Outer Worlds, Team Grounded.

Baza67d ago

Don’t hold your breath probably 2 years out.

Bruh67d ago

3 years out, the game is only on Series X and PC and Microsoft themselves have stated no Series X exclusives for 2 years. So its 2023 or out

King_Noctis67d ago

Even if it is 2 or 3 years out, it still is coming exclusively on MS platforms, isn't it?

CDbiggen67d ago

I forgot this was even shown. So much forgettable trash in one hour.

DiRtY67d ago

“ I haven't read the article or other comments, but I'm just gonna come in with a big fat Nooooo. Nintendo is fine doing their own thing and Microsoft can continue to fuck their own consoles up.”

You are always hating on anything Microsoft. So yeah, we got it.

CDbiggen67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

Nonono, keep reading, there's more to me than that. I hate everything.
Edit: also there's legitimate context you've missed out for that comment. And you had to go to page 4 of all my comments to find that.

Look, that showcase was abysmal and I can say that as a Switch owner with nothing to play for the rest of the year.

TheRealTedCruz67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

Only some people are allowed to instigate and troll around here. Depends on the content of the instigating and trolling.

I'm risking a suspension simply saying that.

CDbiggen67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

Well I was just being 100% honest, not saying it just to "troll". Are you saying I'm one of these people allowed to instigate and troll? Because that's just paranoia dude.

TheRealTedCruz67d ago (Edited 67d ago )


I never called you out. I don't think I ever came across you until now on this site. I was just calling out the mentality of the site that I've noticed over the years.

Real talk though, the fact that you took this as an attack on you feels sort of "paranoid" to me.

If you feel you fall into it though. Let's be real, your original comment was needlessly aggresive.

CDbiggen67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

Nice spin, but I think the way I took your first comment made sense given how you worded it. I didn't feel "attacked" lol, was just asking a reasonable question.
My tiny two sentences were hardly needlessly aggressive; I was just expressing disappointment which the majority of people on this site seemed to have felt following that showcase. Just a load of CG trailers and no gameplay.

Obsidian has made some great RPGs, and are now working with the largest budget they ever had.

Just saying.

TFJWM67d ago

? How do you know that? They are working on a game that will be included in GamePass.

TheRealTedCruz67d ago (Edited 67d ago )


The hell do you mean "how do I know that"?
They were handed millions by MS to be bought out as a 1st party company. They are now being bankrolled by said company.
Their cousin company, inXile, were purchased at the same time, indicating that they are looked at as the heavy hitters for Xbox's western rpg arm.

Prior to this, Obsidian was working on publisher deals, and Kickstarter campaigns, to get games out.

You do realize that first party titles tend to be the most funded releases that, well, release?

King_Noctis67d ago

You're on a roll today. Funny that, as always, N4G's mods haven't mark you for trolling.

CDbiggen67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

As always? On a roll? What do you mean for both of those?
People are too sensitive on here.

SamTheGamer67d ago (Edited 67d ago )

The only game I'm excited for in the entire show, rest of them looks meh!
