Really hyped for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As a long time fan of the series, bringing back every fighter is a bold move, and one that I never would have expected. Especially Snake. Seemed conventional wisdom that Konami were being dicks. Also hyped for Ridley; as a big fan of the Metroid series, it's nice to finally have more representation. I also really love dragons. Probably going to be the most exciting newcomer for me, since my other wants are really beyond the pale shit, like Isaac from Golden Sun, Solaire from Dark Souls, Doomguy from....Doom, Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, and Magcargo from Pokemon. Then again, I also want Simon Belmont, and given that Konami's on board for this game, I would actually be surprised if he didn't make it in.

While it wasn't remotely substantial, some acknowledgement and confirmation that The Elder Scrolls VI is coming eventually was nice. Can't tell where exactly this seems to be taking place, but it doesn't look like Akivir or anywhere exotic, so I'm mildly disappointed.

The Samurai Game Trinity of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Ghost of Tsushima, and Ni-Oh 2 all have my attention. Still need to play the first Ni-Oh, though. Hopefully it's on sale for super cheap this upcoming Steam sale.

The first Crackdown has always had a soft spot in my heart, and the sequel disappointed the hell out of me. Seeing the third one looking like a big return to form (with Terry Crews himself being the main character) has me hyped. I was honestly expecting the game to be cancelled, because that's all Microsoft seems to know what to do with their big AAA games as of late, so to see that it's still alive and kicking (even if it's delayed) elicited a huge sigh of relief from me.

Loved Cuphead, so seeing that getting some DLC down the road is a nice treat. Also cautiously hyped for the Battletoads revival.

The PC Gaming Show revealed Maneater, an open world RPG shark attack simulator kind of thing. What's most interesting to me is that apparently you can upgrade and evolve your body parts as you progress through the game, reminding me of Enix's cult classic E.V.O. Search for Eden, one of my all time favorite games. Sable also looks comfy, and Noita looks pretty fucking cool.

For those looking for more RE2, here's some in-game footage: https://youtu.be/DFykxpS7xVE?t=1m27s

Man that takes me back. It's crazy because unlike most games of its time that one's background environments were iconic and detailed enough to still be recognizable here, but it's relatively like they've come to life and you're really there... I don't know if I like that, or if I'll be able to play this with the lights off. :griffnotevil:

If they recreate this moment to that effect I'll jump out the window:

At least there's two clear reference to Kurosawa at the beginning of the demo :

2 - Sanjuro : the one shot kill (which is a well timed charge attack) when Jin face the Mongols

I didn't know that that's directly attributable.

That game does look gorgeous, but whether it's "close to an Akira Kurosawa movie" remains to be seen. Pretty lofty expectation!

1 - Seven Samurai : the flag appearing at the hilltop
2 - Sanjuro : the one shot kill (which is a well timed charge attack) when Jin face the Mongols

Can't wait to find other classic references such as Harakiri (Kobayashi), The Sword of Doom (Okamoto), 13 Assassins (1963 and 2010) ect.

Death Stranding trailer from E3 is nothing less than amazing, but I wonder how gameplay will look beside walking. Kojima said that fighting in this game isn't priority. It is intriguing indeed and somewhat good, because there are already too many action games based on combat.

The trailer successfully grabbed my interest, but what I really wanna know more than what is up with Death Stranding is why Kojima hasn't dropped video games and picked up cinematography yet. I know, not the first one to suggest this, jokingly or not, but this new game coming from him really had me wanting this to be a film rather than a game. I don't know if he plans to revolutionize gameplay or what, but if it's gonna end up being more of a cinematic experience type of game (never liked those), then it might as well be a damn film.

- Ghost of Tsushima :  Apparently Sucker Punch's vision is close to an Akira Kurosawa movie ?  sign me up again !

They are indeed throwing out more Fallout Scrolls stuff...in the form of endless Skyrim ports and another one of those lazy survival games that never get finished that's likely going to be made up of recycled Fallout 4 assets. I think on some level, Bethesda's aware they're in danger of falling into irrelevance. They used to be able to coast by with their big open worlds, but everyone makes those now, and they do so with better graphics, better animations, more onscreen characters, and considerably fewer loading screens. Bethesda's behind the times, relying on the same outdated technology and development techniques for almost 20 years that just won't cut it anymore, and if they want to do anything comparable to what Ubisoft shits out on a yearly basis, they pretty much have to start from zero. That's my theory for why Elder Scrolls VI: Fallout in Spaaaaaaace is taking so long, anyway.

Everything you say about their games and technique could be true, but Skyrim and Fallout 4 sold a gazillion units each, so I don't know that they're experiencing any consumer pressure other than, "Take our money again SOON!" Which they seem to be ready to do with this half-assed Fallout survival game ripoff.

Anyway, I finally got around to watching the Death Stranding trailer. That's a game that I've largely tuned out because the way the news has been drip-fed has been very eye-rolling. It was revealed...what? Two years ago? And we still barely know anything about it. Selling a game entirely on the basis that it's being made by Hideo Kojima always rubbed me the wrong way, and showing nothing but a bunch of pre-rendered "weird for the sake of weird" stuff didn't help matters. And while it's nice to finally see some actual gameplay footage, I can't say it looks all that captivating so far.

Tactical Ambulatory Operations! Cutting edge walking simulator; ooof, watch out for those loose toenails, gross! It does look like an upscale MGSV with all the enemies removed except for semi-invisible flying ones, apparently (BTW, it is a nasty twist to make the guys you're hiding from invisible =). I'm interested though, and don't mind them promoting it based on being a Kojima game alone because he's earned his reputation for better or worse (I mean, that last bit of the trailer with the flashing light on the embryonic space suit revealing the umbilical ghost monsters... you just don't see that every day =). I wish more game creators were regarded or carried themselves that way (basically like a film director or auteur, whether you buy what they're selling) and dared to be weird. Whatever Death Stranding is doing looks much more fresh and intriguing than another Samurai game. Anyway, there's something familiar about your acerbic grumbling... can't quite put my finger on it...

They're certainly throwing everything at the wall, but it seems that includes all manner of Fallout Scrolls too, just no telling if they'll be any good.

- Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden : A tactical adventure game with turn-based combat, story, exploration, stealth in a post apocalyptic world, it sounds really good to me.

Oooooh, that looks really cool. Definitely putting that on my radar.
