While Epic's Mark Rein thinks that episodic gaming is a broken model, GameDaily's CEO and Publisher, thinks the entire gaming business is broken. This is part 2 of a 3-part series on the future of video games, what's not working and what the future may hold.

well...as long as there are gamers....the VIDEO GAMES WILL LIVE!! (wats that guy been smoking?) just kidding not really : )

THELANDSOFSAND6517d ago (Edited 6517d ago )

i think that episodic content is a natural progression of expansion packs. not all games will adopt this style, but with Live! constantly growing and a endless demand for new material, (Oblivion and COD2 could have easily adopted episodic content) I think all we are waiting for is a killer app to really show how episodic releases will work.

GTA4 anyone?
;)

this was a good read atleast.

Sorry but WE will never let games become just another trend as was once thought of games back in the 80's when the said market crashed. Our grandparents were known for their heroics in the 2 world wars, our parents we're known as hippies/ disco dancin' yuppies, let us be known as the ones who ushered in the digital era and embraced it as our own.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 launch trailer will send shivers down your spine

Ninja Theory's latest trailer for their highly anticipated narrative action-adventure Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 is absolute cinema.

Reaper22_7h ago

Like I said before, buying Ninja Theory was one of the smartest moves by Microsoft. Games looks incredible.

Rynxie3h ago

Unfortunately, their games aren't big sellers. Will MS shut them down if hellblade 2 sells below expectations?

outsider16241h ago

If it sells below expectations, then i expect it to come to PS5.

Elda56m ago

The game may be a critical hit & still can get shut down. I highly doubt most XB owners will buy this game including the fact that it's digital only at $50. Most folks that have Gamepass will play the game through the sub service. If the reviews tomorrow are just average to low then that's another problem.

"Like I said before, buying Ninja Theory was one of the smartest moves by Microsoft. Games looks incredible."

Indeed.

Just a few hours to go

I can´t wait!

z2g6h ago

badass. already installed via gamepass. if its as great as the first one I will pay for the whole game.

glenn19792h ago

I just don't understand why all the down votes

jwillj2k46h ago

Here we go again. Is this a game or a choose your own adventure???

purple1016h ago

if you choose left, turn to page 39, if you proceed forward, turn to page 43, to turn right, page 209, you finished the book early,

no but seriously this looks like Microsofts first hit, or should I say, first game of standout quality.

jwillj2k45h ago

Never questioned the quality. Question is will there be a need for the controller.

anast1h ago

The time machine 'choose your own' were awesome.

Tedakin3h ago

If it's anything like the first game, you will spend a lot of timing walking and solving puzzles, with some fights thrown in.

Elda5h ago

LOL! Didn't send any shivers down my spine but I'll demo it after midnight tonight through Gamepass to see what it's giving.

Obscure_Observer3h ago

After the midnight? I see...

Day one as expected for another game that you said you had zero interest.

Elda1h ago(Edited 1h ago)

Finally making a re-appearance. When the heat was on about XB closing studios you were crickets on all articles. Now that the heat has died down all of a sudden you're here on an XB exclusive article or should I say a timed exclusive...lol!! If you must know I can demo this game at midnight because the University I work at is closed for the summer so I can play video games until my heart's content until the end of August when I go back to work. That's what Gamepass is for, knowing I would not spend $50 on Hellblade 2 because the first one I thought was boring so I'm going to see if this one is still boring or is it interesting by demoing the game.

Elda1h ago

Why not I have a year subscription to Gamepass, I don't have to spend $50 on a digital only game that I may not like including I'm on a lengthy vacation from work.

rlow15h ago

It looks amazing, I’m hoping the reviews are solid. You can tell the studio really poured their heart and soul into this one.
