Age of Empires (1) Definitive Edition

Looks great, should buy. I should also get around to buying AoE II HD.


$5 in the summer sale: http://store.steampo..._Empires_II_HD/

The game holds up remarkably well -- even visually. I consider AoE II HD to essentially be a perfect example of a remaster/HD port because it's literally the same game with modern resolution support and online functionality. They didn't change the art or sound effects or music or anything like so many remasters/remakes are guilty of. Plus it has Workshop support for usermade campaigns/maps/mods, and it's been getting fairly regular expansions that introduce all new civilizations. The new expansions may not be as great as the original Conquerors expansion, but it's kind of amazing that a game from 1999 is getting expansions in the first place. If you enjoyed the original game back when it cam out, HD Edition will feel nice and comfy.

Also, no mention of the DragonBall fighting game? Looked fun! Seems it will out Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Quite the shame that Capcom is shitting the bed this gen (as Street Fighter 5 isn't anywhere near as good as the 4 series).

Skull & Bones
LOL poor Rare. Sea of Thieves sent out to die. I didn't care for Ass Creed: Black Flag, so unlikely I'd jump on this.


Dragon Ball Z is for DWEEEEBS. Drew being interested is further proof.

Skull & Bones doesn't seem to be a jaunty pirate adventure game like Sea of Thieves -- it's mainly PVP naval combat. It's not even clear if you'll be able to control anything besides a ship.

Sony is slow as fuck at updating their youtube channel with what they just presented, so most of these links are stream rips. EDIT: Updated with better links.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
  • Trailer
  • Lots of explosions and crumbling structures and falling.

Horizon Zero Dawn The Frozen Wilds
Days Gone
Monster Hunter World
Shadow of the Colossus Remake
God of War 4
Piderman
Kind of a lukewarm Sony conference compared to previous years.

Ubisoft

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

 

Assassin's Creed Origins

 

South Park The Fractured But Whole

 

Skull & Bones

  • Pirate game by Ubisoft Singapore
  • Shared world, naval combat, PVP seemingly the major focus.
  • Appears to have no hand-to-hand combat -- only naval combat where players compete to get the most loot. In other words, this is not a pirate adventure game.
  • Gameplay

 

Starlink Battle for Atlas

  • Ubisoft Toronto
  • Sci-fi toys-to-life game thing where you build little plastic ships to modify your starship in-game.
  • Trailer

 

Far Cry 5

 

New Crew game. Who cares.
New Just Dance. Who cares.
New Steep expansion. Who cares.

Beyond Good and Evil 2

  • Only a CG trailer, but totally worth watching.
  • Highlight of the Ubisoft conference by a huge margin.
  • Set before the events of the first game.
