Watching IGN w/ developers of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

 

This looks & sounds awesome...and very difficult, the way the dev's are talking.

 

They say it's designed is very similar Dark Souls 1 - with namely to the inter-connected style of hubs & areas like that of Dark Souls 1; and that you'll find items, read descriptions, explore, & have to figure out what to do w/ them.

Watching Giant Bomb E3 Night Cast.

 

Alex is talking about Remedy's upcoming Control

...and its crazy and bat-crap story/premise, tons or Remedy style action, and your special powers.

 

I'm sold on this.

My gaming rig is getting pretty old and I'm shopping around for something new. I'm not sure if I'll build again or if I'll just buy something ready out of the box as time is not really my friend these days. Do any of you have any experience with Cyberpower PCs? I'm looking at either this one or this one. Any other equivalents for sale out there that any of you know of?

No experience w/ Cyberpower PC's - but the specs on both of those are awesome.

 

Since both are NVidia-based, I will also advise this: go for a 120hz G-Sync ready monitor. I have never experienced anything so smooth in my life, gameplay-wise. As good as playing anything at 60fps is - that feels like crap, when compared to what comes out of a 120hz monitor w/ G-Sync support.

Forza Horizon 4 looks awesome.

 

We also now have a Route/Race Creator too, so you can create your own routes and checkpoints for a race and whatnot.

IGN is currently looking at Cyberpunk 2077.

 

EDIT:

Cyberpunk is going to be utilizing the first-person perspective.

When driving, you can go into first or third-person perspectives.

There will be vehicles; at least motorcycles and cars are here.

Can pick between Male or female character named V, who is full voice-acted.

No real class system, though you can wind-up being considered having a certain class based on what skills you select/upgrade/whatever or wind-up w/ some kind of jack of all trade.

Story will be noir-based.

Famous characters from Cyberpunk series will be in here.

There will be melee and ranged gun combat.

How many expansions have there been to ESO and do they still have that piece-meal in-game DLC like buy these dungeons for 1,000 crowns or whatever?  Gotta be honest, Fallout 76 is making ESO look pretty good.

Here's the DLC and Expansion ("Chapter") list for ESO:

https://elderscrolls...tralife.com/DLC

 

FO76 is only looking good b/c we ain't seen if it'll use Creation Club or not and we don't know if it'll have Expansions/Chapters and Mini-DLC's.... ;)

I will say that TES mobile game looks okay... plus it's free and will also be on the PC.  Nice little time-waster.

[sarcasm]

 

I just can't wait to see how much MTX's & Creation Club Support this free game might have.

FO76 gameplay looked kinda interesting, but even with all the unanswered questions that still surround it, it's clear that it's entirely the opposite of what I and many others want out of a FO game. But even then, the game is going to no doubt be a financial success because the audience it is made for is gonna eat it up.

 

Those other teasers, I dunno, I don't see the point. We all knew they were coming at some point, but it's clear from Todd's wording that they're still a long way off (Starfield I bet doesn't come out until 2020 at the earliest, and TES VI is probably 5+ years off). This won't put an end to the "Where's TES VI?!?!" questions that Bethesda gets hit with all the time. This was their way of saying, "We're working on it, shut up", but it won't shut people up.

Yes, it's definitely not what I want in a FO game.

 

For a Bethesda game, I want a fully playable offline game that I can mod to my heart's content. If they kept that and also had the option to also take it online w/ players, that would be cool. But throwing this entirely online-only is a mistake, I think; especially when we're seeing more and more games go online-only, especially in the AAA space.

 

Even more so, well...ain't this a "kick in the head" after Bethesda did that Save Player 1 Campaign last year.

 

It doesn't seem like even VATS is here in FO76 either - of course, I dunno really how to make something like VATS work in an online-game of this type.

eh Fuck this thread

 

bunch of twats that can't even discuss gaming on any rational level

What's to discuss??!?

 

Most fans of Bethesda's games like their games b/c they are offline games that can be modded however you see fit...without dealing the online-players, always-online DRM, possible cheating by other players, and any other MMO non-sense that comes w/ those games.

 

Putting a Bethesda game online fully...well, that makes their games basically just another MMO type of game; it's what happened w/ ESO basically. We got enough of MMO's, online-only, and MMO-lites out there already - and we know since this is the new AAA thing, we're going to see more of these.

 

By putting a BethSoft game online, you basically lose all of the stuff that made Bethesda's offline games so special in the first place - such as mods & big huge open-worlds that you can experience alone.

 

EDIT:

What makes this worse, is that this is not a new franchise they are doing this online-only stuff with. It might be more forgivable, if this was done w/ a new franchise/IP. So, this also makes matters even worse. Fallout has an already huge fan-base and most of those gamers have certain expectations....and modding & offline gameplay are those things.

I mean... I was braced for... optional co-op with a hook-up to Creation Club and a deluge of paid mods.  This is... it's basically ESO.

 

Also, Poopfield coming 202X.  And TES6 with a vague screenshot... that's probably not Black Marsh coming 202X.

Black Marsh DLC was announced for ESO actually.

 

EDIT:

Holy shit. I didn't think they'd make an Elder Scrolls VI after the moderate success of Skyrim, so this comes as quite the surprise.

But, they basically showed really nothing.

Just teaser trailers for Starfield and ES6.

Nice to know they are officially acknowledged by Bethesda now - but eh, we still saw nothing on those two.

I'm certainly glad to see Madden return to the PC, since '08 was the last one.

Certainly, $100 per year w/ Origin for their biggest titles like Anthem, Madden, BF5, etc is interesting - as I'm not much to replay games and I do feel a lot of them do have a shelf life.

 

With Origin Premier, do you get these big titles on Day 1 release?

 

EDIT:

Answering my own question: looks like games for Origin Premier will arrive be right before or on Day 1 public release:

RIP Bah.

 

I certainly didn't know Bah that well, but still - he's one of us CAG's from this thread. And to lose one of our own CAG's, that always sucks. :(

 

And it sucks that he's gone so soon...and y'all are saying what a great person he is, which really makes this suck even more so. The good ones always seem to go too soon from this world, as this world really needs the good ones; that's for damn sure.

 

And I'm certainly not gonna forget the BF1 bro nights that I actually showed up for...and yes, Bah was there. And I had a damn blast w/ the entire Bro Club. Makes me wish I wasn't so solo'ing my games most of the time, set in my own ways, and actually showed up for more Bro Nights, as I only really got to be entertained by Bah and barely got to know him from those few BF1 bro nights I showed-up for, when they had the 10 hours trial for it.
