PC Gaming Show

  • Satisfactory. FPS open-world factory building sim with a pretty great trailer. - Odd premise, but interesting.
  • Warframe is still going strong. Some other loot-based co-op action RPGs could learn a thing or two from it. - Never played it,, is it any good?
  • A bunch of Sega games coming to Steam. Yakuza 0 ($20), Yakuza Kiwami, Shenmue I & II, Valkyria Chronicles 4, some other anime stuff. - Cool if you're into these games.
  • Man Eater. Trailer. Open world action RPG where you play as a shark and eat people's butts. - The PS2 Jaws game with better graphics.
  • Jurassic World Evolution. Jeff Goldblum Trailer. - Need to see some game play, but Jeff Goldblum could sell me on anything.
  • Sable. Gameplay trailer. Open world exploration game with a nice art style. - Color me interested. Really like the art style.
  • Star Citizen. Trailer. The game that wants you to spread your wallet's cheeks wide open is now in Alpha 3.something. Coming 2029 maybe. - Money:  The Game. It looks incredible, and I'm sure my computer would explode trying to play it.
  • Genesis Alpha One. Trailer. Explore the galaxy. Build your ship. Capture alien creatures. Splice their DNA into your crew members to increase their abilities. - Meh.
  • Overkill's The Walking Dead. Gameplay trailer. Basically Left 4 Dead. - These guys are going to get sued.
  • Two Point Hospital. Gameplay trailer. Basically Theme Hospital. - That's....something.
  • Ooblets. New trailer. Jolly. - Kinda looks like an acid induced fever dream.
  • Cyanide & Happiness battle royale. Trailer. - I'm in.
  • Hitman 2. Miami gameplay trailer. Nov 13, 2018. I'm very happy this sequel exists. - Was on the fence until he smacked the guy across the face with a fish. Sold.
In before the deftech mehs.

 

Only one meh!

 

 

Sony

  • The Last of Us Part 2. Very long cutscene + very scripted gameplay. I guess this is what people like. - This was reaaaaally long. Looks fine, will buy it when it's on sale like the first one.
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is free for PS+ tonight. - It's free, so I'll add it to my library, don't know if I'll play it much.
  • Ghost of Tsushima. Gameplay demonstration. - Seems interesting.
  • Control. Gameplay trailer. New Remedy game. - Quantum Break 2:  Electric Boogaloo
  • Resident Evil 2 (remake). Trailer. Trailer 2. Jan 2019. - People seem excited, so uh, cool.
  • Kingdom. Hearts. Is. Fucking. Insanity. - I really dislike the music in these games.
  • Death Stranding. (Light gameplay) trailer. I guess you're a deliveryboy or something. - What's with the baby? Lots of walking, not a great way to sell people on the game.
  • NiOh 2. Trailer. - mmmmmk.
  • Spidermans. Gameplay demonstration. - In my veins.
  • Deracine. Trailer. New FromSoftware game. PSVR. This wasn't in the show and I don't know if that was a mistake or not. - VR, meh.

 

Only one meh here, too! Really lackluster show for Sony. The format was awful.

I'll edit in links when they become available.

Microsoft

  • Halo Infinite. 343 game. Trailer. No information given about what this game is gonna be. - Hard to get excited about a tech demo. Looked nice, though.
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Trailer. 2019.- Beautiful. I should get around to playing the first one.
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. New FromSoftware game (Dark Souls). Published by Activision (weird). Gameplay trailer. Fantasy samurai game with a grappling hook. Yes. - Looks great for people who are a fan of these types of games.
  • Fallout 76. Trailer. 4x size of Fallout 4. West Virginia. Still don't know what this game actually is. We'll probably know later tonight at Bethesda's conference. - K.
  • Life is Strange: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Trailer. Side story. New characters, same universe. Free on June 26. - Seems like something my kid would enjoy.
  • Crackdown 3. Gameplay trailer. February 2019. - Kinda just looks like the first two games...
  • Metro Exodus. Gameplay trailer. Feb 22, 2019.- Meh. Points for having Massive Attack as the background music.
  • Kingdom Hearts 3 is just as incomprehensible as Death Stranding. - My wife can't wait for this, so I'll end up playing it while she watches. The first two weren't bad.
  • New Sea of Thieves expansions. Trailer. - Meh.
  • Forza Horizon 4. Trailer. Gameplay. Set in Britain. Changing seasons and weather. Apparently every other driver in the world will be an online player. Oct 2, 2018. - I'm not into racing games, but it looks great.
  • Microsoft owns Ninja Theory now (Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice, Enslaved, Heavenly Sword). - Good to see MS realize they need some first party support.
  • PUBG is getting a new tropical and snow map. War Mode (probably 50v50). - Cool. Spend some time fix the damn performance issues and bugs, though.
  • The Division 2 exists. Washington DC. Looks like the same game. Snore. - No care, ever.
  • Indie game montage. Enjoy 2 second snippets of some really interesting stuff. I recommend watching at 0.25x speed. - K.
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Trailer. Lots of jumping and crumbling structures and falling. - Don't care for the series, didn't move the needle.
  • Devil May Cry 5. Gameplay trailer. - Yup, that's a devil may cry game.
  • Cuphead Expansion. - Very nice, can't wait.
  • Tunic. Gameplay trailer. Foxboy: A Link to the Past. - Map looks exactly like the map from 3D Dot Game Heroes for PS3.
  • Jump Force. Trailer. Super Anime Bros. Fighting game. Dragon Ballz. Naruto. One Piece. Death Note. Anime. Anime. A N I M E. - K.
  • Dying Light 2. Trailer. Gameplay. Player and narrative choices apparently have significant consequences on the world. - Haven't played the first, this looks neat. May give the first one a shot.
  • Battletoads. Teaser. 2019. - K, showed nothing.
  • Just Cause 4. Trailer. Tornadoes. Dec 2018. - Heh, the tornado thing is confusing. Looks like fun.
  • Gears Pop. Trailer. Gears of War. Funko Pop. Mobile game. Hahahahaha. - butwhy.gif
  • Gears strategy game. Like XCOM. Set 12 years before Gears 1. - Next up, GoW kart racing.
  • Gears 5. Here's a long cutscene and then some gameplay snippets. - Didn't play the fourth one, not interested in this one.
  • Cyberpunk 2077. Trailer. Yasss. - Nice looking world, interested enough to want to see some game play.
Really solid showing from Microsoft. Like 95% of the conference was spent on games. Microsoft learned from Sony how to do E3. However, there was no mention of Halo MCC or classic Halos coming to PC, so I can't give it more than a 3/10.

 

Nice that they focused on games, not a lot of meat to the offerings though as a lot of these will be multi-plat.

I am playing it, and its fantastic. Beautiful graphically, solid gameplay, and the story is interesting.

After playing Horizon a bit more, it's basically Assassins Creed with dinobots and slightly better combat.

 

Got a Switch for Christmas, and have been playing Zelda with my wife. Outside of the incredibly annoying weapon breaking mechanic, it's pretty good. We've been making steady progress thus far, and have knocked out a few of the shrines off of the plateau.

I walked out of the theater thinking, "I don't know if i liked that." And the more I've thought about it, the more I realize I didn't. Incredibly disappointing.
