New Game Announcements and Trailers

Recommended Posts

A whole lot of stuff was announced at the Game Awards last night. Here are the ones I'm most interested in.

The next Far Cry, New Dawn. I've never played a Far Cry, but this might be the first.

 

Hades. It's from Supergiant and I have loved every game they have made so far. (Pyre, Transmission and Bastion)

 

The Outer Worlds. From Obsidain, makers of Fallout: New Vegas. Trailer looks fun as hell.

Apparently it's now a thing (Elder Scrolls 6) to make teaser trailers for games that won't happen for years. I'm a huge fan of DA and will definitely be playing it when it releases some time in 2022.

 

And this trailer for Anthem seems to be screaming "Yes, it's multiplayer, but we have a real story and NPCs! Unlike Fallout 76!"

When did adventure games come back into vogue?  I'm not complaining.

I bought the original when it was on sale last year. Never got around to playing it. I'll probably pass on this.

The newest trailer for Anthem is a combination cut scene/live action short direct by Neil Blomkamp (District Nine)

I really like the look of Anthem and The Division 2, but I am too old to be shooting it out with 14 year olds. Single player for me.

That's pretty cool. He did the Halo shorts too. Maybe that's where his strengths lie? In live action game trailers?

Also, is there a cast list anywhere? I'm looking for one, but not finding it.

Fuck! Fucking fuck! The Outer Worlds won't be on a platform I will play on. See, I'm fine with it being on every platform under the sun, as long as Steam and/or GOG are included. But no. Frankly, I feel betrayed and disappointed. Judging by the responses, I'm not the only one.

Since I was so pissed off before, here's some good news! Bethesda are putting all their current and upcoming games on Steam. They've realised that they can have both a larger piece of a smaller pie, and a smaller piece of a larger pie. This is the way to do it, IMO.

And here's the crazy thing. The cost of Rage 2 has suddenly dropped by $30 Australian. When I first saw this game, I thought it looked like a perfectly decent $60 title. When the price was announced at $100, I had a good laugh. At $70, I might be able to accept that. If I was a preorder person, I'd be tempted by this. But Rage 2 is very much a wait for the reviews kind of game. Still, I live in hope.

Yes! I'm a big Borderlands fan, have 2.5 thousand hours between the three games. Shit that's a lot. Anyway, I hope this is good. I hope this is on Steam. I hope that if the new Siren is melee focused, they'll finally make some better melee.

Well, shit. It'll be on Epic. Still, I didn't buy the others at release. I can wait a few months.

I don't find it to be an especially compelling trailer.

If I wanted to see a boring white guy with light brown hair, I'd look in the mirror. I'm a xenophile in fiction. Give me something different, not just boring old humdrum. At least it looks like he'll have some better companions. A black woman, an alien, and a droid.

If this is just the Star Wars version of Uncharted, and not something where i have to buy a loot box every five minutes, I'm good.

Upon a second watch, his hair may be auburn or even red. I apologise for calling him a boring brown-haired guy. He's still just as boring, though.
