Well… Devolver Digital ramped up their “game”… Apart from that kinda boring and misleading I guess :smiley:

Carrion Game looked cool… kinda… doubt the gameplay will be challenging though.

A few things I’m hyped for are:

Doom Eternal, Going to pick up Doom 2016 soon played the demo and it was awesome and Im sure Eternal will be just as amazing or even better.

Twelve Minutes, The trailer shown during the Xbox presentation looked cool don’t know to much about it, but i’ll definitely keep an eye on it.

GhostWire: Tokyo Another game we dont know to much about but looks very interesting and seems like it could be a great game.

Way To The Woods Cool looking Indie Adventure game where you play as a deer with your fawn.

Phantasy Star Online 2 It’ s MMORPG that has been stuck in japan since release but now Xbox is bringing it to the West (NA for now) and looks pretty fun plus its also Free to play and if its not too play to win I might give it a try.

Some Honorable Mentions that I’ll be keeping an eye on but not overly hyped about:
Minecraft Dungeons
CrossfireX
Gears 5
Cyberpunk 2077

I know it’s hard but try to be respectful of others in regards to spoilers…:heavy_heart_exclamation:


#6

It is fun. I have played it. It will likely have Game Guard. If Sega has a hand in it expect it to not play nice with recording software.

I don’t remember what payment options they had. I don’t think I was able to understand them, and I wasn’t about to let on I was from the states. (was against ToS)

Really the fact that I was playing on Japanese servers with a translation and the no recording was the reason I stopped.


#7

What I’m most hyped for:

  • Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord (supposedly there’s beta at E3 this year)
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Minecraft Dungeons (I really hope it comes as a free update :frowning: )
  • (Star Wars) Jedi: Fallen Order
  • Wolfenstein: Young Blood
  • Babylon’s Fall
  • Elden Ring
  • Blair Witch
  • Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition
  • The Outer Worlds (when it leaves Epic Games)
  • Animal Crossing Switch
  • Dying Light 2
  • New Paradox Interactive game (still not sure if it was Werewolf: The Apocalypse?)

I’d say Phantasy Star Online 2 as I played the other one on the original Xbox but since I don’t have the system its coming from my hype went from 100 to -100. :joy:


#8

Just finished Ubisoft’s conference it was dull as heck. Most of it was just shooty bang-bang games (a total of 4 shown were Tom Clancy games), and there wasn’t even mention of Beyond Good and Evil 2.

I’m personally excited for Doom Eternal. Gameplay looks as frantic as ever and the new enemy designs and environments look great. I’m also pretty hyped for Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Cyberpunk 2077 looks cool, but I need more gameplay to be 100% sold.

Now I’m gonna go into cryostasis until Nintendo’s conference tomorrow to avoid Smash spoilers.


#9

Oh it’s only for Xbox. Seriously? They already have a PC version in Japan. They obviously have the translation done. Guess they didn’t want to put up servers for it. That’s a disappointment as I still have no desire to get a

PS4 or Xbox One

Sometimes referred to as Pissfour or Xbone.


#10

Yikes, really? Literally the only thing I care about from them anymore, ever since they butchered my BELOVED Prince of Persia. Beyond Good and Evil 2 changed my outlook, but now it’s been too long and I lost interest again.

This! SO and I are defo looking forward to Ori and Silksong alike. Such awesome-looking games from such equally awesome devs!

This looks cute as heck btw, thanks for the head’s up!


Now for a more serious industry question:

I was talking to a friend about E3 and Cyberpunk and CDPR, and he reminded me, very pertinently, of the crunching reports CDPR was under not too long ago…

So I’m wondering if we’re gonna hear about how Cyberpunk’s development cycle is being handled. Pre-order is 10 months ahead of release – anyone has an in-depth view as to why that might be? – and I’m wondering if anything changed in regards to employee treatment from ~2017 til now.

https://www.gamezone.com/news/cd-projekt-red-developers-speak-up-on-the-realities-of-working-on-witcher-3-and-cyberpunk-2077-3461430/

This is something we should be talking about more than games.

I’m honestly waiting for more info on AMD GPUs. And NVIDIA’s something super.


#12

Radeon RX 5700 XT will be available for $449. The Radeon RX 5700 will land at $379. Navi will be available on July 7, 2019, on the same release date as the Ryzen 3000 processors.

Hmmm… Those appear to be priced similarly to the RX 2070/2060. I will need to look into how they perform when they come out.

I think I will be traveling anyway. Hopefully AIB partners have their products launching as well.


#13

Its Xbox & PC I’m pretty sure. Almost all titles Xbox announced are coming to PC also.

Edit:Its confirmed Xbox & PC (windows 10) from pcso2.com

Pretty much anywhere anytime you talk about CDPR there’ll be a fair count of people popping up out of nowhere just to tell you how terrible CDPR is to work for. No arguments just statements to the point that it feels like some sort of organized smear campaign. Now I’m not saying CDPR is perfect and I’m sure they, like every other large developer, works their staff hard.

However as opposed to most other large developer who are US based CDPR works in the EU and we have robust worker protection laws and agencies able and willing to enforce them. If CDPR breaks labour laws in the EU then these people have recourse to take, but it is up to them to take it.

CDPR has been a costumer first focus kind of company from the start and if there’s something the gaming press hates more than gaming customers I don’t know what. Since I can’t actually trust the gaming press to be truthful and I know that EU labour laws works and can be enforced I find myself inclined to doubt these reports. Not saying they’re fully fabricated, but I would suspect them to be exaggerated and cherry picked.


#15

Oh! That’s awesome! I saw an article and it didn’t mention PC, only Xbox and that it’d be free. This is great news! :slight_smile:


#16

Oh yup. PcGamer mentions it. As well as a few others. But of course it’s mostly Xbox getting the glory. Which isn’t surprising really.


#17

Just a short input from my perspective: It’s certainly true that it’s much harder to abuse workers in the EU compared to other regions around the globe.
At the same time, I could tell you multiple examples of people I personally know, who had to crunch through weekends or other ridiculous stuff. And I live in Austria. A country that has close cooperation between industry&workforce, employers&employees at its political and social core since the end of WW2 (“Sozialpartnerschaft”).

My point is that even strict labour laws and unions don’t fully protect workers when there are other factors that can put pressure on them. Now, I don’t know the situation in Poland but I can hardly imagine that it would be better than in Austria. So I would take these accusations rather seriously. I do hope you are right though and that it’s just an exaggeration.

It’s also the reason why I wouldn’t look for a job in the gaming industry, even here, even though I love playing and developing games. It’s simply not worth the hardship I might have to go through. But that’s just a personal decision.


#18


Ubisoft won the E3 with a cheap move

in reality it was big trash with nothing but tom clancy titles, lmao


#19

@Fraggles I’m sure there’s no need to explain that not all EU countries are equal, and some EU countries are just no better than 3rd world countries when it comes to employee rights, corruption, etc. It may all be nice on paper, but the actual reality on the ground is a whole other thing…


#20

Sure, making it in the creative businesses has always been hard and tough work. There’s always been a sort of trade off there. By how it’s continuously being framed exclusively for CDPR however it makes it seem like we’re talking Irish railroad slavery here.

My point is that if it’s really that horrible to work for CDPR that it needs to be injected into every discussion about them then bringing them up to the EU courts is what has to be done. The old threat of “if you make a nuisance of yourself you’ll never work in the industry again” doesn’t carry that much weight if you have the EU courts of justice on your side.

Then again, creative fields have always been a struggle, either because you can’t make a living off your art or your art requires an immense investment of work to be a viable occupation. Ask any successful youtuber how many hours a week they put in, you wont find anyone who gets a 40h work week. The same goes for actors, painters, photographers and game developers.

Poland is not one of them. But even then it doesn’t matter, anyone can still be heard in the EU courts of justice.
