The Game Awards 2019



  • @dmcmaster WB Games Montreal will probably reveal the new Batman Arkham game. Follow up on the teases they made a few months ago.

    A new Smash character and new Mario Maker 2 stage style from Nintendo.
    Maybe the next Bioshock game. It's time.



  • Smash's final first round of DLC characters and updates on Witchfire and Bayonetta 3 come to mind. With the recent news Campo Santo has been working on Half-Life: Alyx, I don't think we'll hear about in the Valley of Gods. Also possible the Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe gets shadow-dropped. Happy to know we're getting something on Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Gears Tactics.



  • Batman: Arkham Legacy from WB Montreal.



  • Saw something about two games from Activision getting announced, one being some kind of Crash Bandicoot Oddesy, and the other apparently a Tony Hawk remaster without Tony Hawk..... calling it now Michael Jordan's Pro Skater.



  • @shoulderguy said in The Game Awards 2019:

    Maybe the next Bioshock game. It's time.

    sigh, if only.



  • @dmcmaster said:

    a Tony Hawk remaster without Tony Hawk

    that sounds dumb



  • @mbun
    I agree, but I can see some logic to it.
    Make a remaster/collection of previous Tony Hawk stages, use custom characters, maybe some microtransactions for costumes, fill it with the cheapest modern music they can get, print money.

    Unless it's made by Robomodo.



  • My GOTY is still Metro Exodus.



  • This year nominees seems way better than last year, though the amount of categories where Death Stranding is present makes me worry it will be a 3 hours commercial for Kojima.

    I've no wishes on who should win, cause usually it's the same type of game that tends to win (you could create the TGA GOTY template) but i'd like if Smash wins it, and i'm not even a big Smash player, it's mainly to reward Sakurai's insane work.

    The amount of tracks (especially the amount of new arrangements), stages, fighters,... it's something unprecedented for any video game, and it's not even a quantity vs quality situation because the care that was put on every little detail is noticeable.



  • I'll be happy if Sekiro or Control wins. Outer Worlds, I don't think it has a chance. And Death Stranding I don't think it deserves, though I think it's a good game. But the internet would go wild.

    Outer Wilds I want it to get as many awards as possible.



  • Just dawned on me but we might see a new NMH3 trailer, especially after seeing this

  • The more I play The Outer Worlds the more I think that it’s just a super solid RPG but not GOTY. Definitely like the stories it’s offering up, but I’m not edge of my seat gripped and I’m not in a rush to pour over every building looking for all of the loot either.



  • I think the nice thing about Outer Worlds is that you can look everywhere and it opens up extra character lore and story options, not just loot.
    I got a laugh out of a friend of mine being like "I went with option A because person A is an upstanding leader and he's just trying to help his people!" and I was like... "ah, so I take it you didn't find out he's a cold blooded murdering liar who's been manipulating you?"
    "what? NOOOO?! So you went with option B?"
    "Actually, I went with option C"
    "What was option C? I never saw it"

    The difference was just some random terminal login in a completely unrelated side mission that I did that opened up a quest line that my friend never even saw.

    I will say though that The Outer Worlds is the only one of those games I've finished. Sekiro I barely started and never went back to. Control I'm like 3/4 of the way through, haven't played RE2. Just got Death Stranding.... well, I acquired Death Stranding. I have like 5 hours in it and I'm not sure I get it yet. :)

    Don't have a switch.



  • Some recent things I've heard might be announced at TGA.
    Something related to Insomniac Resistance (collection? )
    New 2.5D Castlevania, apparently tied in with the Netflix show and featuring it's cast.



  • @dmcmaster

    2nd one is a nice addition for PS4's last cycle I think.

    I'm almost sure that it will find more audience than it's original time.





  • We already knew he joined the dark side



  • Omg all of the replies say "the dark prince of nerd media"

    Kyle went too far with that bit ahahaha



  • He's back, heard a rumor he was returning but this conforms it. Allegedly also announcing a Xbox game coming to Switch.

  • Just remembered that rumor from around E3 that said Ori, Super Lucky's Tale, Banjo in Smash and Halo MCC were coming to Switch, and we've got 3 of the 4.
