E3 2018 Gossip & Discussion
  • As long as ESO is alive and well, you will not see an Elder Scrolls 6. It's that simple. They are not going to launch a competitor to themselves. That's my issue with it, well, that and as a single player game fan, an MMO has little appeal for me anyway. If they did the same formula with Fallout, you could kiss Fallout 5 goodbye.
  • Well well well, news out of Korea is a Borderlands 1 remaster. Apparently the Korean Game Ratings Board rated a game by the name of "Borderlands GOTY Edition" for PS4. If true, I'm in!
  • I am kind of bummed about Fallout 76. Off brand Fallout does not bode well. That mobile game was crap. Fallout 3 on Switch would have been better for me.

    My final predictions would be that Starfield is gonna blow my mind. Sony will be dull, Nintendo won't be dull but I won't care, and MS is gonna be a big pile of lies for the ages.

  • Saw a supposed leaked sheet of Sony's conference. I hope it's true cause news of Resident Evil 2 Remake were on there.
  • And we're off. The EA conference sucked. You could watch several minutes of a shitty mobile game.
  • I want Anthem to be good. It looks like the Elementals from Battletech got their own game, which should be super exciting. But it's Bioware and EA, or disappointment and controversy, with a fairly generic-looking trailer and promises of 'only' cosmetic microtransactions. Late Feb 2019 release date so still a ways off anyway.

    Battlefield V(agina) to have Cripple Battle Royale. Yay?

    Overall, EA, meh. Don't particularly care.

  • The most exciting thing in that trailer was the grapple hand. If From can add traversal to their toolkit, that would be a big deal.

    I also love how From knows that if the gameplay and art style are excellent, then the pixels can be the size of your thumb.
  • If fallout is a online base building shooty game, won't pubg sue?
  • Nah, I heard they're going after the new Tetris. Something about stolen assets something something.
  • Microsoft was better than I thought it would be. No big fat lies this year. Lots of games, but not many that really sell an Xbox, which is usually the point of such presentations. The weirdest thing was announcing five new studios. They needed to do that, but announcing with nothing in the pipeline is strange. I mean, they will kill at least one studio, and the survivors will make nothing for this generation. It felt like MS was saying that E3 2022 was gonna be pretty good. Still better than lying.

    Bethesda was a let down. 76 looks OK I guess. I will play new multiplayer Fallout 4, but these guys are capable of so much more. They knew they kinda had nothing. The title frames for Starfield and Scrolls were an admission that this year is slim pickens. I liked that Bethesda previously did not tease. They showed stuff that would out this year. We know you are going to make Scrolls till the end of time. Announcing a number, with no gameplay, no trailer, no title, and no fucking setting is bullshit.
  • So I just watch Bethesda. They mentioned next gen.

    Up until that moment I have been thinking about upgrading to an Xbox one x. Game pass is looking more impressive. I have an S is it worth it or should I just stick it out for next gen?

    I don't wanna get a new console for it to be super out dated in 18 months.

    I just don't know. On one hand Forza in 60 and Hali in 4k sounds nice. On the other £450 seems a lot.
  • I wouldn't bother nutta, you know they'll announce the next gen as soon as you do.

    Game pass is the future. I can already see the next gen of consoles shipping with no physical drives, Sony will have PSNow and M$ will have Game pass. Netflix and Stan. Sony has wanted to do this since the PS3. Ubi has been talking about wanting to do it recently. We will all, as EA says, "know the benefits and joys of subscriptions". You won't need backwards compatibility for your disks, because everything will be available in the subscription.

Howdy, Stranger!
