    E3 2018: Playstation Conference - NO FFVII

    yeah.. there's obviously the spectre of a new console on the horizon too. There'll be a lot of unnanounced / not ready games in the pipe that they won't want to announce too early because it'll steal the limelight from this gen's final set of games.

    E3 2018: Playstation Conference - NO FFVII

    Well they were pretty upfront from the off saying "we're going to only deep dive into 4 games this year" - so they're definitely holding stuff back. MS always go first (which perplexes me to this day) but for the first time ever I think Sony have decided they don't need to "respond" any more because they are so far in the lead. (which is a debate in itself, I thought MS's show was very strong) I'm really interested in MS buying these studios. That's a definite mood swing, and looks to be a move to ape Sony's WWS approach. I don't buy that "nasty MS will ruin them just like they ruined Lionhead!" - they've got to have learnt from that experience.

    So what did everyone think of the Sony conference then? I thought it was a bit meh, but figure they are saving stuff for PSX.

    E3 2018 and not a f*** was given

    I've been pitching (and so far failing) a manga/anime style racing game in the shape of Auto-modelista on steroids for a couple of years now, I want to effectively make it so it's a never ending Japanese road where you encounter street-fighter-style "a new challenger approaches!" kind of head to head street races. Each one getting harder than the other. Anime Outrun Tokyo drift rainbow XX ultra edition. Basically. All with the art style of Manga comics and Lichtenstein. Sadly no-ones got the money, and want something in the Battle Royale space instead.

    I genuinely wasn't trying to be pedantic, (I really do agree with your points about budget being poured into hyper violent grimdark, instead of outrun 3) - just wanted to point to some really great looking games that I'm looking forward to. And maybe sell another copy of Wipeout...

    OK, I need a chain of games.

    In response to the original thing, I'm sure Miyamoto himself said somewhere that he finds the best games designers haven't really played many games, (so they don't copy or fall into other peoples tropes) - lots of companies are looking for "none game playing creatives" - It's very common that people "in the industry" don't really play games, they prefer making them.

    OK, I need a chain of games.

    I've just compiled a list of games to get my missus into gaming - might be of use (although maybe not?) Gentle introduction games: Dear Ester / Everybody's gone to the rapture Her Story Hidden Folks Papers Please Mid: The Witness The beginners guide / Stanley Parable Oxenfree Stardew Valley Thomas Was Alone High: Human Fall Flat City Skylines Limbo / Inside (admittedly my objectives probably aren't the same) Edit: We're about mid-way (I've not included the console games I'm exposing her too, but she's currently taking on until dawn) I'd say her story was a defining moment where she went from not arsed to "okay, i get it now" - so I've kind of tried to focus on stuff with strong narrative rather than twitchy gameplay.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    All of the above is my guess It'll be some sort of Fallout Anniversary edition: Remaster of Fallout 3 VR Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 Switch port

    IIRC "yes" it was limited in some way, (might have been a pre-order bonus or something? or tied to a specific outlet) It was Europe only though, which angered a lot of Americans

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Looks a bit like they've taken Mad Max and mixed it with Doom a bit

    Polytopia: It's quite like CIV, but it's absolutely brilliant and monetised absolutely perfectly. (You optionally pay more money to unlock new civilisations)
