Old news here.

 

Extra extra - read all about it! What's new on the scene of gaming?

 

Last couple of posts

 

 

Just look at how far we've come though...

(1995) The very first E3:



(2016) Last year's E3:

 

 

I watched few E3 streams in previous years, but anything except SONY, was so bland and boring. You do not need to watch Ubisoft show at all, for example. Just write on a paper few times ICONIC and EPIC, put it on wall and look at it for one hour. It's as much entertaining as all their E3 shows, which I've seen.

 

Sony on other hand, has always made very interesting show to watch, even when it presented games, which I do not care at all. And this year, they promised, they would bring more Japanese games to Playstation brand again, so I am curious which kind of games it will be, and if they will cooperate even with smaller japanese companies to bring more localized games to the market.

This looks very promising, can't wait!

 

 

E3 is the reason I own a PS4... sadly, after E3 is finished I go back to playing my pc and my PS4 sits in my closet. Still, E3 makes me proud to own a statistic of PS4 owners and Sony deserves that much from me as they make it entertaining to watch.

Microsoft has had some equally impressive shows, in fact I'll go as far as to say that it goes back and forth between Somy and Microsoft as far as who had the best show. Nintendo, very much like PC has been an afterthought at E3 since Gamecube died. I doubt the they'll have anything truly amazing this year. No Metroid, so on so forth.

Btw, for those of you TB geeks. - PhoenixPoint got funded albeit with only one stretch goal so far. The initial hype was real, seems it lost traction somewhere on the way. i guess not enough news/exposure on the way and near the end.

I don't know where this goes, but Payday 2 is free on Steam and you get to permanently keep it.

So...apparently CD Projekt Red has apparently been given a  ransom demand to pay money or face leaks of Cyberpunk 2077 design documents.

I read that earlier. Sucks, but I hope the culprits get a legal whopping.

Probably the biggest game news on the net right now:

6 hours ago, Sega unveiled Chemical Plant level from Sonic 2 in Sonic Mania. Needless to say, within 6 hours, people have uploaded thousands upon thousands of videos on their hype because of it. Not just Sonic fans but gamers in general. You can check out why it's such a big deal here...


Rehashes are amazing especially when they're this good! Go Sega, go!

Meh... The whole situation reminds me of when Tenryo "leaked" info about F K Digitals upcoming games. I'm not too worried about it but perhaps all this will work in their favor since these things help the dev/game get even more publicity anyway.

It's important to remember that info on games often get leaked and I'm sure the threats happen more often but we just don't hear about them. The Tenryo/F K Digital situation was much more serious, though they're not an rpg company so I suppose it won't be as relevant on this forum.

Still...

Somehow I got Payday 2 for free a few years ago.

 

I'm unclear on how that happened.

While this looks good, I wonder how it will stack up against Ace Combat 7 (PS4 version).

I don't think DCS has anything in common with Ace Combat. The F/A-18C will probably be modeled as realistically as the A-10C is, which means you'll have to read the manual to even take off and land successfully

Or in the case of a carrier aircraft, fully proficient in landing only after at least a hundred touch-and-go landings and several dozen carrier traps.

Why does the teaser concern itself with shooting which was my least favorite part of the game is beyond me, but a proper sequel to Sleeping Dogs is great news regardless.

The key important part of Sleeping Dogs... was the joy of the story, the atmosphere of the city, and the amusing martial arts system along with how you could use it with the environment. The gunplay was always a minor element. Maybe the teaser trailer plays it up to do a "see, we're balancing it out this time around...."
