Summer Game Fest



  • So this is old news already (and it's not really in the Summer Game Fest) but I was just made aware of it so it might be worth sharing again. Gamesradar's Future Games Show returns in August 28th. I saw that the new Sherlock Holmes game is showing up there, pretty excited for that. A lot of cool looking indies are showing up as well, if you want to see them you can try looking up #FutureGamesShow



  • Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart will be showing an extended demo at Gamescom ONL. I'm super excited for this, it's probably my most anticipated PS5 game.



  • @bam541 This makes me very excited, and not only is it my most anticipated PS5 game, it's also my most anticipated game overall.



  • @bam541

    Now we see this, I wonder if we will get more from upcoming PS5 exclusives.


  • Banned

    Ratchet has me excited because, at least so far, it is the only actual game we've seen so far that really helps people understand just how the next gen will improve gaming.
    Plus the games are just fun as shit.



  • @scotty I'm not sure about exclusives, but I think we could see more of the smaller titles they showed in the PS5 reveal that has a release window this year, like Jett: The Far Shore.

    Also, Geoff announced that we'll be seeing Little Nightmares 2 gameplay and a trailer for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond (Respawn's VR title for Oculus).



  • @bam541

    I'm hoping now with this R&C news.



  • @scotty

    Yeap. Good to not get dissapointed.

    I read somewhere that this year's fest will be condensed and not spread all summer like last year. Hope it helps fest's momentum because last year was dissapointing with lot of whatever streams with a few exceptions, at least this time it can be all done in one month.

    Also E3 is coming back this year too, wonder how much content we will see now that both of them will happen at the same summer.

    Just a request for Keighley: Please put lesser commercials than Game Awards.



  • With the return of E3 and Summer Game Fest sticking to June, it's going to be very weird to have two "big" events in the same month either splitting the announcements or overlapping.



  • @axel you don’t seem to understand the potential here. We are being given 2 separate chances in the same month to get ourselves excited for Metroid announcements only to absolutely shattered when Nintendo uses any booked time to announce Animal Crossing is getting new furniture.



  • @axel I'm super curious about whether the big publishers would double dip on both, just go with one of them, or ignore them in favor of something of their own. I can see Square Enix having another direct that's tied with one of them. I don't think Sony's eager to work with the ESA, but Microsoft's probably down to do one big event with them. Nintendo's on their own, for sure. Also, I'm hoping for another Double Fine Day of the Devs thing for Summer Game Fest.



  • Didn't realize it was getting close to June already. It's 3 weeks away!



  • The weather near me is starting to get hot. The sun is out, it's sorta breezy, and most of us have one dose. I think for the first time in a long time I'm excited to just embrace the summer: biking, hiking, camping, back patio beers, bocce, and all that summery goodness. But also for the first time in a long time, I look forward to our video game announcements like SGF or E3 and I can have something to look forward to without actually staying inside playing games all summer.



  • @dipset I just want to take photos at crowded beaches again, seeing local beaches here empty just feel so wrong. The pandemic's at a weird state too rn globally, I'm not sure that it'll happen anytime soon. At least more people are getting vaccinated here, the Astra Zeneca thing kinda slowed things down but it's still progressing decently.



  • Expecting nothing from this. My main event is E3 this time.



  • @bam541

    Yeah we are not really anywhere close to reality again. I bought a fancy ass camera in February 2020 just for the world to end.

    I still think it'll be safe enough for my partner and I do outdoorsy things but I'm not going in crowds anytime soon.

    Either way, I'm obviously going to play stuff this summer, but I'm not going to stow away like I have for a while now. I miss the old routines of fun in the summer and gaming in the winter and I'm ready to get back into it.

    This E3 season is going to be refreshing for me.



  • @bam541 Unless Weezer is announcing their new game, I don't think I need to see a Weezer performance.



  • @mbun lol I'm not a big Weezer fan, but I think the whole summer theme kinda fits them. I just hope they play some songs from the White Album.



  • Does anyone watching it? It's better than Game Awards in terms of less annoying commercial intensity but still very mediocre overall. Only game that took my attention iş Planet of Lana for now.
