Do we not have this thread yet? I thought we did but I couldn't find anything.

I'm trying not to get too excited too early, but Days Gone looks really, really, really good.

That’s why I couldn’t find it. That thread doesn’t really work.

That's a lot of unannounced games being announced at least a month ahead of schedule.

All of these are a big meh from me. Though Rage 2 could be cool.

Ditto. I really do think the industry is hitting a creative saturation point, with Switch and VR being the two paths to the future. Seems like the devs are mostly interested in churning out sequels rather than pushing the boundaries of the medium.

Notice how no unannounced Sony or Nintendo titles have leaked. That is where the creativity is coming from...

Going from complaining about 'churning out sequels' to being happy about...sequels...in the span of one post.

Nintendo actually innovates with their sequels too. It helps they usually only have one or two games in a series per console too. Not an annual or biannual release.

EA CEO: We’re ‘pushing forward’ with loot boxes despite regulation

Seems like they're going to continue to try to monetize competitive advantage in sports games, while perhaps backing off a bit on FPS/multi-player shooters and the like. It's like a weird melding of gambling with baseball card collecting, which would be fine if it weren't for the fact that they hold a virtual monopoly on official teams and players, and many of their customers are underage. :shake:

I know I'm reading between the lines but A) not saying PS5 and B) saying Vita makes me wonder if they're looking at the Switch and thinking about aping that but - in typical Sony fashion - with higher-end specs. Game Boy Advance to PSP, for example.

PSVR would take a hit, that's for sure.
