September is gonna be great, no, GREAT for us gamers... Geez, look at everything coming out in that month. Soul Calibur 6, Spiderman, Dragon Quest XI, Shemmue, etc. The best of the best! I'm excited but also...


E3 is right around the corner!$$$ (June 10th) We should never take E3 for granted, it's always good for the industry and wants to kill loot boxez.

Yeah, E3 should be good. I just like seeing all the progress and new ideas going on in the industry. My shortlist of interest includes:

 

Cyberpunk 2077

Ghost of Tsushima

Death Stranding

Dreams

From's "Shadows Die Twice"

Bethesda's Game (Starfield?)

Tim Cain & Leonard Boyarsky's Project Indiana

Patrice D├ęsilets' Ancestors: The Human Kind Odyssey

Valve's Mystery Hot Sauces

 

 

Hopefully a few surprises too. I'm kind of interested to see how much of a mess Anthem is. I'll be shocked if it looks on par with what was shown last year, I'm anticipating more battle royale, destiny-clone nonsense.

I have to give credit to Sony, they've really been spitting out the best games, high quality story writing,graphics and gameplay. I'm so excited for Spiderman and know that it's not one least bit overrated. How do I know this?

Simply looking at who's at the helm (Insomniac, makers of Sunset OD and Ratchet & Clank). It's going to be amazing, spectacular, ultimate!

^ The graphics and combat I saw in another trailer make the game look sweet in those areas. And I like the humor-lines. But is it a mostly one and done kind of action game? Or is it supposed to be good for replaying. It'd be nice to have another PS4 game for the console tho, since I've pretty much abandoned it after XV on PC.

I think it will be a one and done kinda game, I don't think you can make any kind of "choices" and I doubt there will be multiple endings (maybe I'll be proven wrong). With everything I've read, it's going to be like Arkham Knight though, in the sense of tons of content, probably could get 50-75 hours easy out of it with all the side quests and crime waves.

Additional info: Mary Jane and Miles Morales are playable. Black Cat will be playable through dlc. There is a role playing bit in the sense of leveling up and the cool thing is that you have different suits you can level up individually, buy moves, equipment, etc. High tech Spidey :)

Dragon Quest XI is coming this September and it's by far the best rpg of the year (the Japanese version has been out for a bit which allows me to make such a claim). It will be on Steam, PS4 and 3DS. The best on the best!

If only they hadn't neglected EverQuest and then sold it to those...those...ugh :(

I think they toned it down a bunch and now it is back to being a simpler show where some companies can announce projects.

I thought everyone was over E3

 

Never cared for EverQuest Next, at all.

 

EverQuest 2 was a pretty great game though and could still have been if Sony hadn't just invested the minimum to keep a viable playerbase and not a cent more. It had a great setting, a huge amount of lore, lots of actual roleplaying mechanics (like multiple languages that you had to somehow learn. Having to speak to a Dragon and then the super long questchain just to learn Draconic so I could actually *talk* to that Dragon, because no way in hell an ancient evil dragon would bother to speak some lesser race language... Or hell, just gossip about a guildmate with them there knowing they don't speak Fae...) and a huuuge amount of content built up over the years. Hell it actually had literal puzzle dungeons, and also just regular dungeons with loads of puzzles in them, to top it off it had a pretty great system to keep "max level" players playing lower level content by allowing them to lower their level temporarily.

 

In my mind there's a very good reason why we don't speak about MMORPGs anymore in the context of any of the "big ones": because they ain't. MMOActionAdventures, sure, but RPG? Nah.

 

On that note (and in some actual news, so we stay on topic ;)). The company that bought Sony Online Entertainment (and as such EQ, EQ2 and the rest of the furniture), Daybreak Games is in some seriously dubious waters as the company that supposedly bought Daybreak has had its assets frozen by the US government. So depending on what's what it is possible that the SOE franchises end up either disappearing or for sale once again, in which case I hope someone willing to turn the games around is picking them up (or just let them die, which seems preferable to the treatment EQ2 was getting from Daybreak, imho).

Anyway, article here.

Ermm...


Hmmmm.......


Pascal's Village........






You see,

It's not Everquest I spoke of, but the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which is an event held every year which announces and shows off new games. It's like the Superbowl for gaming.
