Alright, the first game reveal that actually got me excited:

 

Metro Exodus

 

I mean, it's not S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, but it will have to do.  :p

 

Edit: As an aside, X Box 1 X is a horrible name.  I'm talking Wii U level terrible.  Who comes up with these names and how do they still have a job?

 

Edit 2: Also, what the **** is Mixer?

I agree with everyone on youtube that the new AC os coser to Dragons Dogma than Assassins Creed but that's a good thing. Looks legit so far

The further Assassin's Creed gets from Assassin's Creed the better.   :p

 

I mean that's why I liked Black Flag so much, it was the least AssCreed AssCreed game to date.

Agreed.

Life Is Strange 2 looks phenomenonal. Glad it's a prequel about Chloe and Rachel. Chloe as main protagonist <3

So, Anthem is basically Destiny.

 

Edit: Microsoft's presentation was definitely better than the soul crushing dumpster fire that was EA's presentation, not that that's a surprise.  For me I got excited for Metro, everything else was stuff already present on other platforms (mainly PC) or stuff I didn't much care about.

Anthem looks pretty promising. Looking forward to it. Also Cuphead (which I did know of before), An Artist's Escape and (despite the atrocious name) Super Lucky's Tale all look good too.

^ If nothing else, it looks like it has more actual gameplay than Fullbright's previous effort.

Anthem reveal was seriously impressive, but I've seen enough games that try to sell that style of game and they never turn out like that. Destiny, The Division. Even bespoke single player open world RPGs don't have that sort of super dense perfectly dynamic set pieces. Not to mention this game has to be 2 years out still.

 

Also, I really dislike this sort of "demoing in-game chat / player role-playing / pseudo-VO" that is used for these types of games. It makes the whole gameplay loop feel very forced. Why not just let your game either be gamey, or show off proper narrative work. Instead of having to pipe it in from a would be player. The game won't come with a soothsaying roleplaying girl to squad up with.

Anyone know when/if Obsidian is making a presentation? I know Tyranny was teased to have an announcement the 13th, but is that an E3 thing or else?

If you don't already own those they're on sale on Steam right now. $4.99 each and $7.49 for both for the next day and a half.

Any idea when Obsidian will show?

 

Also A Way Out looks really interesting. I'm not really into games like Metro but the art design looks cool.

Would be something if Bethesda announced a "Fallout: New ___" game made by Obsidian in their upcoming press briefing. Whatever Obsidian was working on it must be something special if it managed to lure Leonard Boyarsky from Blizzard.

I wish, but do they have the time will Pillars 2 coming out?

Assassin's Creed looks pretty interesting but the whole 4 edition thing including a full game and season pass valued at at least $100 will make the wait easier till a complete edition of huge sale later in. Tired if these Deluxe/Gold/whatever editions from Ubisoft.
