    Going off this, I'm adding Randy Pitchford fails doing magic trick


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,042 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    Predictions:
    Most looking forward to: Ubisoft Forward and Square Enix.
    Winner will be: Bethesda/X Box.
    Likely to disappoint: Dice/ Battlefield 6

    We only have to wait until 4pm today for the Battlefield 6 reveal :p I'm hoping it is going to be good. Accordingly influenced by BF3/4.

    Rumors that Kojima's next game is going to be multi-platform. Which would indicate it is not Death Stranding 2 as that was only PS4. Why release a sequel to a game that was console-exclusive only 2 short years ago.
    Hmmm. Horror game would be my next bet if anything. So much buzz around his PT demo and people wanting another Silent Hill. You would figure it would be a smarter business move from his studio. But who knows.

    What's that advert? should have gone to spec-savers?

    You couldn't hit that quote button quick enough that you didn't quite read it huh? :pac:

    .. it aint on switch or xbox one. which are consoles. I chose my words carefully when writing that as I am aware its on pc. But if you want to play it on console its only ps4. which is why i am saying why would death stranding 2 appear on xbox series x knowing the previous entry was ps4 only. So it sounds like kojima next game wont be DS2 imo.

    Didnt stop mass effect 2.

    It will depend on how much of a stake Sony have in the IP.

    True.



    Oh and 22 minutes left to Battlefield 6 reveal. Accordingly the trailer won't drop until 4pm but the live stream starts at 3. Accordingly!

    If Kojima was anyway smart, after the ****e with Konami he would have hard baked into every contract that he owns the games/IP/rights/characters/etc he makes, the publisher just publishes.

    Got an e-mail from Square-Enix inviting me to watch their "presentation" on Sunday. They are showing:

    -Babylons Fall (interesting, not heard much on it since it was announced)
    -Life is Strange: True Colors (never been in to the franchise so meh)
    -Marvels Avengers (jesus, they are still trying to push this thing, aren't they! Gotta make back that million dollar hole its left in their balance sheet I suppose)

    Really looking forward to seeing how BF is shaping up. Really not looking forward to more Avengers stuff!

    I didn't know who Mythical Games were when they were announced for E3. Now I wish I didn't.

    Same thing happened with the Far Cry 6 gameplay reveal


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 49,452 CMod ✭✭✭✭Retr0gamer


    I've a feeling the avengers video could be a disaster.

    Still, it could be saved. I mean Ubisoft have made it nearly their mo to release a mess and then save it with good support later on.

    I'm hoping for the former as it will go well with chocolate and popcorn


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,118 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy


    I wonder are they bricking it over this rumoured GotG game now, following the Avengers' poor showing. I actually think a first person 4 player co-op Guardians game á la Vermintide could work well with the variety of characters and combat style.

    Christ, that ejector seat takedown sequence was beyond cringe.

    In fairness that has been done by players in Battlefields game before. Might be a nod to that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 27,266 ✭✭✭✭super_furry


    Looks nice but I already know it'll be like every other Battlefield game I've played. I spend five minutes running to a point, get sniped by someone I never see, and do it again.

    Oh I know. Just felt out of place to me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,245 ✭✭✭recyclops


    looks ridiculous, just throwing in random set pieces to make things go bang. Really all over the place

    case in point why would a quad be on top of a skyscraper?


  • Registered Users Posts: 301 ✭✭pcadhain


    I, too, hate fun and prefer realism in games.

    Playdate Skyrim confirmed!

    @Eoin, we could probably do with a free space? So we'd have to eliminate three from the list... I think Ubi have said PoP won't be there, and I guess Splinter Cell and HL3 are probably the two least likely to happen? Or should we eliminate the two most likely to happen??


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,112 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I think the Sunset Overdrive Sony port can be removed since Sony don't have anything scheduled in the timeframe?
