    Official Site

    Geoff Keighley will be hosting the first show of the event, Opening Night Live. ONL will have gameplay footage from the new Ratchet and Clank, as well as the usual trailers, announcements, surprises etc. The two hour long show will supposedly feature 38 games. There'll be various other shows over the three days too, including a presentation dedicated to indies.

    Hopefully there'll be some nice reveals, although I've given up hope on seeing anything Elden Ring-related in 2020. :(:o

    First Ive heard of a new Medal of Honour game. Will this be this years "yearly Battlefield-like game from EA" game?

    Also AoE3 HD....never played the original but heard its not that bad, just had one of the hardest acts to follow in AoE2

    Damn it. I just got my hopes up for Elden Ring news after seeing both Bandai Namco and Activision there. Damn it to hell.

    I think that Bioware video was meant to follow something else, the last thing we saw didn't show much for Dragon age but in this they'd VA with new character ( as far as I know) and not anything else like we should know something about them already.

    Don't have much faith in Bioware in any case.

    Cool to see another Sam and Max game in the works....pity it looks to be a VR one(have no headset myself). Geoff Keighley is absolutely dead behind the eyes though, he just stands there with a permanent grin that is unnerving. He has to be as they ain't showing much but concept stuff.

    Twelve Minutes, now with added Willem Dafoe (and Daisy Ridley and James McAvoy).


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,459 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Nice one for the vids Eoin! I can only dip in and out of the stream so at least i can just watch them all back on this thread later.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,631 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    Lemnis Gate looked interesting to me. Turn-based strategy FPS in a time-loop!



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,756 ✭✭✭Thecageyone


    R&C was about the only game I was interested in from what I've seen. And that means thinking on a Ps5 ... hmmm, maybe when it drops in price sometime in 2022


  • Moderators Posts: 5,554 ✭✭✭Azza


    Was interested in the Medal of Honor VR game, graphically it wasn't great but the mechanics and gameplay looked fun. Alas it doesn't look like it will be available for the Index so that's ruled it out.

    Star Wars Squadron might be good and that will work with my VR headset, but I think I'll hold off until the review comes in before deciding.

    Not overly interested in Lego Star Wars but I have to admit the trailer had alot of charm.

    As I mentioned else where on this forum I'm really digging Doom Eternal's gameplay so I'm looking forward to the expansion.

    Mafia, well I really enjoyed the original many years ago. Not sure how well it holds up. Again will hold off until reviews and player opinions are out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,480 ✭✭✭✭Varik


    Think there might be a bit more in Mafia than just a remaster, it was shown in the trailer and they've some DLC skins for linking accounts but there's motorbikes in this unlike the original.

    Mediocre show


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,101 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Fúck all of interest for me there. Crash and that's about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,774 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Well this isn't creepy at all.



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,101 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    I stand corrected. I loved Little Nightmares.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,631 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    There's going to be a complete remake of 1999 city builder, Pharaoh.



    And there was another (fairly shite) cinematic trailer for Werewolf: The Apocalypse.

    Same, Dragon Age 4 is the only thing I'm interested in but most of the Bioware staff that made the excellent Dragon Age: Origins game are gone by now. Their last two releases have been laughing stocks.
