There's no excuse now for any of you to not play Like a Dragon. 2020 was full of great games and it was still my GOTY.

Really? I haven't played it yet, but the combat looks really repetitive. There doesn't seem to be much difference whether you change your job to chef, idol, or anything except the attack animations. You liked this game more than Dragon Quest XI?

I wouldn't count DQ11 as a 2020 release since I played it on Switch (also it debuted in 2017), and that version came out September 2019 (though I played it in 2020). I've been playing Dragon Ques for over 20 years and DQ11 might be my favorite in the series, so that's also an easy recommendation.

 

The combat in Like a Dragon is repetitive, and does have some odd difficulty spikes (some of the last boss fights are incredibly long and cheap). It's greater than the sum of its parts, though, the story, characters, and world are all wonderful. Unless you hate JRPGs, though, the combat shouldn't be a deterrent. 

 

Comparing the two, though, I would say that I spent 100 hours with DQ11 and was ready for it to end. There are some parts which can be a real slog. I spent 70 hours in Like a Dragon, and was actually sad when it was over because I couldn't put it down and I never felt bored. 

 

The 2020 competitors for me were Doom Eternal, TLOU2, and Final Fantasy 7R. FF7R is a close second but the ending is 3 hours too long and some of the pacing in that game made me want to rip my hair out.

The Bethesda acquisition really made a large portion of my physical library obsolete. Great for GP though.

Eiyuden Chronicle is the Kickstarter game from the makers of Suikoden, right?

Leaks killed any potential hype for this meh presentation. Game Pass getting Y7, Hades and Back 4 Blood (though it confirms it'll be MTX central) are the highlights. Rest of this are previous announcements or random indie stuff that'll be multiplat.
Good on them for finishing adding the Bethesda catalog to Game Pass. Where are the Xbox ports/remasters of the PC only titles though?

I am so glad Forza Horizon 5 is NOT in Japan. Mexico will be cool.

 

Eiyuden Chronicle looks like a Sega Saturn game. Kind of took away my excitement for that one.

I'm seeing plenty of good stuff I didn't know about. Atomic Heart dropped my jaw. And it's good there's another Left 4 Dead successor on Gamepass too.

Forza Horizon 5 is EASILY the highlight of this presentation. It looks phenomenal and there is no racing game even comparable on other consoles.

I am really hoping Atomic Heart is great. I have been really excited for that game since the first trailer.

There were some other games I would have liked to see but I thought it was a great presentation overall. Lots to look forward to and even if FH5 was expected to come, having it come this year and looks as amazing as it does, I’m absolutely pumped for it.

Fuck the haters.

My only bummer was not much in terms of news or talk in the Japanese side of things, but eh, whatever. It's what I was hoping for and that's Game Pass showcase for the coming future, but feels WAAAAAAAY too early to bring up Outer Worlds 2.

I see Forza Horizon set in Mexico, and my first question is will it start with a race to the border like one of my favorite episodes of Top Gear?

Really good Xbox presentation, and the value of Game Pass is just insane. Hoping Square announces even more additions.

Yeah, some exclusives and heavy hitters were missing, but still a very solid presentation. Lots of interesting cool games that are coming out this year. 

 

It looked great but its announcement was a given.

It was inevitable but I'm pleasantly surprised it'll be out in 5 months.

Still amazing too that all but three of the games shown will be on GamePass day one.
