Summer Game Fest

    BLOP:V........for Vietnam

    What a great coincidence!

  • @el-shmiablo
    I think you mean


  • I'm having this feeling in my stomach that I do before first E3 conference starts. From today, we will be with this feeling for whole summer. Next gen starts...Right now!

  • No Xbox, don't be sorry; it's not your fault. It's my fault for getting tricked again. I'll make sure that it won't happen again. Also, stop saying gameplay if there is no gameplay for GOD SAKE!!! Especially AC, what a dumb hype; this was not what anyone expected. Besides that first game, none of the games looked next gen. This was a not a good start for the fest to say the least.

  • So much good stuff was shown, I didn't expect that!

    And SCORN is a thing now, not just an EZA meme!

    The highlights for me: The Medium, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 (such an awesome trailer), Scarlet Nexus, The Ascent... Of course some didn't show proper gameplay, but in terms of atmosphere, world building, etc, all of those got my attention!

    proper gameplay

    There wasn't any proper gameplay except the first one.

    My expectations weren't exactly high in the first place, but that was borderline embarrasing.
    Where is the Halo Infinite? Where is Coalition's project they've been hyping for years? Forza? Fable? All those games from all those developers they bought?
    Other than maybe one or two games, this was 30 minutes of my life I wish I could have back.

    Elden Ring
    Call of Duty Black Ops 5
    Tell Me Why (Dontnod Entertainment)
    Resident Evil 8
    Assassin's Creed Valhalla (obviously)

    0 out of 5. It's time to get Hype!

    I thought Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 looked great but I was already sold on that game. It showed some cool environments and scenes.

  • @el-shmiablo

    1st party will be in July, they said it before going into trailers. It was known this will be all about 3rd party.

  • Banned

    Ah. My mistake. I honestly didn't even know this was happening until it was posted in discord.

  • @scotty Yeah, I guess I didn't mind because a lot of those were brand new reveals, so I didn't expect to see gameplay.

    But still, if I remember well, Chorus, The Ascent, Scarlet Nexus and one or two others did have gameplay too. Small snippets, but enough to know what the game will be like.

  • @axel

    Fair enough. They said everything will be about gameplays though, ''We know that you don't like cg trailers'' etc. I don't accept that not showing gameplay for all those games.

  • Lots of trailers that left me wanting to see more. And that's basically what was missing here, more time with each game.

    MS marketing keeps being hilariously bad but at least they're doing something and taking risks.

  • @scotty Ah ok I missed the part where they said that then haha. I probably would have been disappointed too in this case.

  • @axel

    Don't use the word gameplay. I don't like it when companies play on words to hype things.

  • Yeah, I guess as long as it's not a CG trailer and it's "in engine", they qualify it as gameplay. But obviously that's misleading.

  • @axel

    They know it for sure but they act like they know nothing about this perception. :DDD

  • @phbz pretty much this, and to me also the fact that they do nothing to sell me on XBOX, knowing full well that anything that looks interesting here I'll be playing on PS5 or PC

  • This was pretty okay. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't blown away either. The Vampire trailer was cool, and it was super jolly seeing Scorn get a major spotlight, but other than that this was pretty meh.

  • I don't know what topic to post this in, so I'm dropping it here!
    Youtube Video

    This was the highlight for me, not just because I love anime bullshit with a sprinkle of Devil May Cry type cheese, but the music just instantly grabbed me. At first I mistook it for a Dot Hack game and seeing Bandai Namco made me think that even more, so I wonder if it just shares a composer with some of those games or something, but I'm way digging the vibe, and even though I laugh at the edgy weeb approved black and red outfits and kinda don't have faith in the combat being strong because Bandai Namco, I'm still way down to fuck up some plant invaders!
