For Beth some people are predicting DOOM DLC, a remaster version of Skyrim for current gen consoles, and new DLC for Failout Quadruple.

Doom DLC seems like a given. Whether its some new skins, Cod style map packs or a single player expansion like Resurrection of Evil remains to be seen. I'm leaning towards the former though, probably too soon for any potential SP DLC if any is even coming.

Remaster of Old Parchment 5 Airwheel seems likely considering that seems to be what every fucking body is doing right now. I and I think alot of people would probably love a remastered Oblivion or Morrowind instead though. That will happen probably about the same time as another good Star Wars video game, Blizzard throws a bone to legacy players, and WB starts caring about PC gamers.....so I might be awhile. Whats sad is Blizzard supporting legacy servers of WoW is probably the most realistic of those.

New DLC for Failout also seems likely though not guaranteed. I think noted manlet Todd Howard promised 3 or more and they've delivered 3 (well 2 and a half). If there is more DLC what will it be? Good DLC like Far Harbor? Decent DLC with the best robit waifu like Automatron? Crap DLC that mods in the 1st week after release beat like Wasteland Workshop?

For everyone else, fuck if I know or even really care.

I'd be slightly interested in M$ for two reasons, the Hololens and possible PC port of Halo. Of course the Hololens is going to probably top a thousand bucks whenever it retails years from now and a Halo PC port seems as likely as having any choice of Presidential candidates in 2016. Even if Halo does go to PC it will probably be some more of that crap free to play multiplayer only garbage they beta'd in Soviet Russia.

I'd be slightly interested in anything from Valve if Valve had anything interesting. They haven't had anything vaguely interesting in years though. We might get more hats or more moba voice packs, whoppee fucking doo.

wut.

Also I expect this year's Ubi headline will mainly be Watch Dogs 2, in which "creepy uncle who has hidden cameras in his sister's house" is replaced with "vaguely black hipster."

And there's a good chance this might end up being Ubi's last big E3 event because Vivendi is currently in the process of trying to preform a hostile takeover of the company and the Guillemot brothers seem unprepared to stop them.

>>58109
I suspect the "mega reveals" for consoles will mainly be hardware upgrades. Though I heard a rumor that all the features on the Bone Elite controller will now be standard for the new hardware version, Microsoft thanks you for participating in the $150 beta.

>Vivendi

They're still around? I thought they died off years ago. Used to be a ton of good Vivendi published games like the SWAT series, Tribes (I enjoyed Tribes Vengeance even if it is savages by most Tribes fans for some reason), and I think Homeworld.

I could have swore Vivendi and all its studios like Sierra were gobbled up by the never ending devourer of games, the destroyer of childhoods, the keepers of CoD known as Activision.
>> No. 58113 ID: d4c8ee
>>58112
From what I remember, Vivendi divested most of their gaming assets from 2007-2013, which resulted in Activision-Blizzard becoming independent, but apparently now they want to get back into the gaming sector, and apparently see Ubisoft as the best means for that.

Though alternatively they could be aiming for a Mitt Romney style takeover, where they buy up Ubisoft, then cut the company apart for a profit.

That's not much of a change from the original Spy Hounds though. Creepy Brother Hacker with Iconic Hat was like a paint-by-numbers "we need a character with broad appeal to core gamer demographics for this game."

Though maybe it'll follow the Assassin's Creed mold and the sequel will be way better than the glorified tech demo of the first game.

Oh so now someone tells me! I literally just bought the game!

Ubisoft games tend to always be shitty broken tech demos in my experience. Trailers show the game far shinier then it actually is and the game usually shows off some half assed gimmick mechanic.

Plus it seems like alot of games of theirs are broken.

Far Cry 3 and 4 were pretty stable from what I recall (though highly repetitive and boring after like the 20th hour) however I don't know if Primal was broken or not because I don't know anybody who played Primal.

Supposedly the reason Prey 2 got canceled in 2012 is because they couldn't actually figure out how to make it into a fun game. The concept sounded great, but Human Head has always been a minor studio and I doubt they had the experience and manpower to deliver on it.

Also a friend pointed out that "The Colossus" is the name of a poem on the bottom of the Statue of Liberty, so it's probably safe to assume that the next Wolfenstein will take place in occupied New York. I wonder if it'll be a new character or they'll have BJ survive the nuke.

>>58138
I guess thats understandable. The concept would take a skilled team to get right. It was supposed to be like Mirrors Edge but bigger.

A good team could make it a very interesting game but a poor team, as you imply Human Head is, would cock it up.

It really sucks too considering Prey 1 (fuck that I have to say that now) was unique, a bit like Portal (though Prey I'm sure came out first) but with guns and freaky native american ghost powers...also I'm pretty sure tits, while Prey 2 seemed like a unique game too.

I know its only a trailer but reboot Prey or Prey 2016 or goddamn you motherfuckers need to learn how to make up new fucking names you moronic motherfuckers I want to drill you in the fucking eye with my dick until you learn something about originality or atleast how my cock feels in your fucking frontal lobe......ahem, the game just seems like another generic shooter.

I love shooters but all the shooters being the same is fucking boring. I don't want some stupid gimmick but an interesting new game mechanic like Portals (Portal, Prey), a completely vertical city (Prey 2), bullet time slow-mo (Fear), mechs (Titanfall), and other shit like that helps a mediocre game stand out from the rest and not get boring fast.

Thats I think why Far Cry 3 and 4 got so boring. There is no interesting game mechanic. Its go to village, shoot dudes, raise flags, repeat 50 times. The closest thing to a new mechanic was those gay ass boring as fuck Shangri La levels in 4 but they suckkkkkkkkkkkkked. Ubishit apparently didn't think so considering they made a whole game about that bullshit more or less but it did most certainly suck. I didn't even finish Far Cry 4 I got so bored.

Bored.....BORED.....BORED!!!!!!

As for Wolfenstein, it seems unlikely they would kill off BJ. Making a Wolfenstein game without him seems wrong. And its not a stretch to think he survived. Dude has been touched by the supernatural including the Black Sun dimension and the zombie gas plus probably other shit, guy has survived getting stabbed....alot, shot....a whole fucklot, crashing a space ship from orbit, getting knocked off a castle while getting his head fucked up by shrapnel, floating in the ocean of who knows how long, and getting punched in the face by robot Nazis.

A nuke ain't going to do shit to him except give him a tan.

If it ain't BJ could have the main character be his polish nurse hottie. People will bitch but I wouldn't mind beyond the fact it again would feel weird playing a Wolfenstein without BJ. It would be like a Wolfenstein without Nazis.

Arkane Studios seems like a decent team, but I am not impressed with Bethesda's rampant bull-in-china-shop cash grabs on old proven titles being rehashed for "modern" audiences.

So apparently the Skyrim Special Edition will be available to all PC players with the Legendary Edition or all the DLC as a free upgrade

My only question is, is the upgrade optional? I like PC Skyrim how it is, its stable with all my mods, runs good while looking good. An "improved" version runs the risk of breaking all my mods, some of which don't have an support anymore, and fucking with stability.

Plus I ain't got a monster rig. Its hard to say what the system specs are going to be. Old Skyrim could be run on a decent dual core machine pretty good, on a more modern system no problem at all.

My machine runs Fallout 4 on medium decently. I'd hate to have to dig up the money to finally update my system just so I can smash dragons in the dick (mods are fun) and have no options of smashing dragon in the dick with slightly less poly count or whatever they "improved".

I don't mind the concept of an improved Skyrim but like the other "Special Edition" I don't want it to replace the earlier version.

>I am not impressed with Bethesda's rampant bull-in-china-shop cash grabs on old proven titles being rehashed for "modern" audiences.

What? Both Wolfenstein: The New Order and Doom 4 were amazing games and were critically lauded, and both were substantial improvements on their immediate non-Bethesda published predecessors, Doom 3 and Wolfenstein 2009. I can hate on Bethesda as hard or harder than anybody, but as a publisher, they seem to do a generally good job, and I certainly have not seen this "bull-in-china-shop" mentality you're describing.

I'm more than confident Arkane Studios can deliver. They not only hit the ball out of the park with Dishonored, but the new Prey has Chris Avellone on board. More than pretty much anything else at E3, I would be most surprised if Prey ended up sucking, given that pedigree.
>> No. 58155 ID: ade114
Dishonored 2: assassin harder, is the one game I'm not worried about at all. Dishonored was a neat little game that did what it set out to do; be a thief clone with magic. DH2 looks exactly like the first but with MORE magic.
Prey? I think they might definitely fuck that up.

But at least we got new Bannerlord footage and The Last Guardian totally has a release date that won't get pushed back again.

I'll admit I'm probably in the minority here, but I'll definitely be picking up Titanfall 2 before Battlefield 1. Recent Battlefield games (pretty much everything after 2142, though Bad Company 2 had its moments) have given me nothing but a case of mild-to-severe disappointment. The first Titanfall was, for the flaws it did have, still a more interesting take on the modern multiplayer FPS genre than anything DICE has done in the last 10 years.

Does it really matter? Like, at all? This is a game where (like every BF game since 2142) there is no faction difference at all besides uniforms and voiceovers. All sides will get FT-17s and Mark Vs. All sides will run around with American M1897s and German MP 18s. There will be no asymmetry. So people are just freaking out over... what? Uniforms? Voiceover languages? This game isn't going to be close to historical or even remotely believable, just going by those aforementioned game design decisions alone, so who cares, it makes zero difference.

Also, Titanfall 2 DLC confirmed as completely free. Yet another reason I'm going for that instead. Post-Bad Company Battlefield games have always been a lackluster DLC platform.

It does historically. I don't really care at all about historical accuracy except that this is going to be the only place most Americans ever encounter WWI. It was barely covered at my high school, and then only as a prequel to WWII.

I don't care about the gun accuracy--who used what, etc. But writing France out of a war that was all about France is really silly. It's like making a Revolutionary War game that ignores basically all the Patriots except a special Continental DLC. You have a bunch of French harassing the Redcoats while some Iroquois and Hessians hang out but you don't get the Continental Army until a weird DLC nobody buys. Bunker Hill is zombies. Wait that'that's COD. I want it anyway.

God dang it, now that you said it its going to happen. You know Activision is probably going to be trolling the internet looking for game ideas and stumble upon your post and think, "You know, people like Battlefield 1 more only because its in the past and nothing else so we should go farther into the past that way people like it like double! Brilliant!!"

You've doomed us all, DOOMED US ALL....to playing a shitty Revolutionary War game. Damn you, damn you all to hell!!!

Activision being cunts aside, was looking at the new South Park game.

I loved Stick of Truth despite hating, HATING, turn based RPGs. But it was a pretty good game and didn't feel like a DMV simulator like most turn based games.

So the fact there is going to be a sequel based upon stuff I care more about (never been the biggest fan of LOTR style fantasy stuff, I don't hate it I just am pretty neutral towards it) had me excited......until I saw it was being done Ubisoft.

I think the reason Stick of Truth didn't suck chocolate salty balls is because Obsidian made it. Ubisoft making it does not bode well for the game.

I'll probably still pick it up when its on sale for 10 bucks but ain't actually excited for the game anymore.

If Americans are getting their knowledge of WW1 from a Battlefield game, that's an unmitigated disaster, so the DLC France part doesn't even make a difference.

It's like if the VC were added as a DLC faction in Call of Duty Black Ops: who cares, it's not an authentic Vietnam game, it's just an arcadey deathmatch with "historic" window dressing, and the factions in multiplayer don't make any difference aside from cosmetics.

  Goddamnit, give me ONE game where I play as Umbrella that doesn't have weird ass controls. This looks like a weird mix of first person and third person perspective.

Don't get me wrong, it's interesting, but I'd prefer this shit for minigames or something, I don't want to play an entire game like this.

I mean, after the fucking ORC fiasco, just give me something like Rainbow Six with fucking BOWs for fucks sake. Fuck.

The fact that I can't do the cool shit HUNK did pisses me off. I've been enamored with the Umbrella Security Service since I was 7 years old and playing RE2. They were everything cool about '90s operators.

Sorry I'm ranting, RE2 was my first exposure to the Playstation and the RE series in general. I get a little passionate.

>weird ass controls

Isn't that like the whole point of the Resident Evil series, weird controls? Even the most recent one I played, RE 5, still had kinda stupid controls. The old games were completely pants on head retards when it came to controls and were made worse by the stupid as fuck camera.

I couldn't even get into Resident Evil until 4 because of that shit. I played one of the games, maybe 2, where it starts out with some chick on a motorcycle or something and she wrecks and is surrounded by zombies and burning cars. Couldn't even make it past that I was having such a tough time with the controls and camera, flung my N64 controller in frustration.

A Resident Evil game without some stupid control set-up or silly gimmick is like a Telltale Games game with actual gameplay beyond what you'd find in an early 90s Lucasarts point and click game.

I think RE2 on the N64 did have an option to have movement relative to the camera instead of tanks controls.

And those awkward controls were with the earlier games, for everything else they provided in the games, it was somewhat bearable.

My complaint is with the USS spinoffs. They all lack depth and their awkward controls make it worse. None of them feel like they're in the RE world and it lacks immersion.

I could handle lack of depth if they just made the game fun, which they never do. Every task feels like a chore.

Like I said, I just want Rainbow Six with BOWs and story. It could easily work and be fun.

No. Tank controls are a necessity born from the camera angles. Try playing Fatal Frame - it has the same kind of "cinematic camera angles" shit as RE1-3 but without tank controls, which makes controlling the character awkward unless you're using the camera which puts you in first person.

  Okay, enough of the dopey RE shit.

Let's get to the REal shit.

I'm extremely curious about the direction they're going with this title. Lots of questions.
