Thinking about the Microsoft showing yesterday I am reminded that I much prefer this over a packed auditorium with people yelling and applause breaks.

The one downside is the major cut to the meme factor. The only funny thing sticking out so far is CHAOS from the Square Enix show.

Creation Engine 2 still confirmed to be the rotting corpse of Gamebryo in disguise.

They're definitely selling Doki Doki short. Don't look anything up to avoid spoilers but it's definitely not a normal visual novel. Worth playing.

There is a bonus live Q and A the morning of the E3 conference. Limited to 50,000, and you need to opt in ahead of time. Part of the Fanfest emails. The last one of these had a bunch of connection issues, so good luck. You can submit a question from the email as well.

"It’s time to celebrate and watch the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase together. Throw on your Xbox Gear and join Team Xbox and fans from all over the world in this special digital FanFest.

The event will kick off at 9am PT with special access to exclusive content with a Q&A livestream. Special guest appearances include:

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox
Sarah Bond, Head of Game Creator Experience & Ecosystem
Aaron Greenberg, Head of Xbox Games Marketing
Pete Hines, Head of Bethesda Marketing and Communications
After our special guests say goodbye, it’ll be time to grab your blanket and a beverage, kick back, relax and watch the show together. Don’t get too cozy though because the show will be interactive. Join the conversation in chat and answer pop-up poll questions throughout the show. If you have a separate device to record yourself, try to capture some of your reaction moments. We miss being able to see you all in person, so let’s capture that energy and enthusiasm and share it.

Xbox FanFest Watch Party will be in English, and live captioning in English will be available.

The capacity for this event is 50,000 and access will be on a first-come, first-served basis."

Any of those HDMI solutions have felt too expensive for me for any one console. If I was going to get something I'd want multipurpose support like that new Retrotink box. As is I tend to emulate most stuff because I only have modern TVs and most consoles with the old outputs look bad on them, not to mention the added features available with emulation.

Finally something interesting from the CD Projekt Red hack!

First we have an internal(!) montage of bugs created a few months before release. Speculation is that this was either a developer joke, or maybe to be released as a bloomer reel if they fit the bugs fixed. It was split in 2 parts for streamable

Actually named "Cyber ElBuggado 2020"

Next we have an EXTREMELY early test build from what must be early pre-production.

NUDITY WARNING. Nothing graphic, just a woman showering
"Cyberpunk 2077 - august 2013 - M1 shower scene"
https://streamable.com/pvbylo

These were just the most interesting videos. There are more from various stages of development. Pretty crazy, we see all kinds of differences including scuffed third-person, a different dialogue system, different UI. The first comment has all the vids.

Have to look into the situation, but just a quick FYI: they did release MOTS “officially” by including it on a vinyl soundtrack release a few years ago. That’s been the only “legit” way to get it so far though.

Ah, that almost feels like a loophole to say it was made available or something. Looks like that came with a digital copy, but I don't see any other digital or streaming options besides YouTube uploads.

It appears in the few hours since my post, Marty removed or privated all videos relating to Halo, Destiny, Myth, and Bungie; from early demo recordings to behind the scenes videos. It sucks, but I doubt he was legally able to do so to begin with. His community is also saying his BandCamp was nuked, but I don't know what was on it before.

Someone backed up all his YT content overnight apparently, including a torrent. Definitely some cool stuff in there for people interested in music. It's only 6 gigs total so I'm just downloading it all. Probably not top quality but most of it was ancient footage or simple text screens with music playing.

Sounds like Martin O'Donnell, the OG Halo and Destiny composer, is getting sued again. He said something about "corporate bullying" last night in some deleted Tweets and YouTube Community posts. This is all that hasn't been deleted.

Thoughts in the spoiler.

At $220 retail for 1TB, I don't think we'll see a bigger official expansion card for a while. Maybe some third parties will try.

Doesn't look like they changed Lilith's general look. I hope this movie is at least fun but my hopes are on the floor.

I really don't understand the casting in general. The three main women (Lilith, Moxxi, Tannis) are played actresses around 50-60, which only really fits Moxxi. Roland is probably worst possible fit. Brick and Mordecai aren't announced so I don't think they're in at this point.

I feel like they will have a squad of 4. Krieg is cast, I'd guess it's between him, Tiny Tina, and Claptrap.

Looks like the remaining 360 Need for Supper games are being delisted today. None of them were BC, so I'm not sure if they're already gone. Buy them now if you want them digitally. Servers go down in 3 months.

"Starting May 31st 2021, Need for Speed Carbon, Need for Speed Undercover, Need for Speed Shift, Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed and Need for Speed The Run will be removed from digital storefronts and you will no longer be able to purchase them. In-game stores will also be closed from May 31st. This is in preparation for the retirement of the online services for these titles which will happen on August 31st 2021. Until that date, you will be able to play and race your friends (and rivals) online. From September 1st 2021 onwards, you can still play the games and use the respective offline features of these titles. "

Does anyone have a good way to block the dearth of ads at www.trueachievements.com? This is getting out of hand.

On Android I use Adblock Browser and never see anything. Don't really check on PC much anymore.

Off topic but free Expansion Pass for Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity. I've never heard of any Oman War situation on Switch but it does take a region swap so it's at your own risk. Personally have region swapped before with no issues.
