In This Episode:

  • EA - June 8
    • Jedi Fallen Order
      • Metroidvania-ish (Metroid Prime)
      • Not hack and slash combat.  More measured. Looks like an approachable dark souls combat style (minus the frustration?)
      • After order 66 and before Rogue One
  • Microsoft - June 9, 3pm CST
    • The Outer worlds
      • The interesting parts of fallout in a sci-fi setting

      • Connect across devices
      • Launching project Scarlett with Halo Infinite
    • Xbox Game Pass on PC ($5/month) Xbox ($10/month) and Ultimate on Xbox/PC ($15/month including Xbox live gold)
      • Basically, if you’re going to buy 2+ games during the year that are exclusive to Microsoft game studios then this is a good deal
    • Phil spencer seems like an executive that actually gets video games. It feels like he wants all games on all platforms.
      • Cross play
      • Play wherever you want
    • Game pass seems like a better and better deal all the time
      • 34 games premiering on game pass from the press conference alone
    • Xcloud streaming
      • From the cloud or from your own Xbox
      • I hope PS5 does something similar
    • Xbox Game Pass is the only thing getting me to actually consider Xbox for the next gen system.  I still wouldn’t get it as my primary console. I think I’m pretty set on PS ecosystem at the moment for my main console.
  • Bethesda - June 9, 7:30pm CST
    • Boring updates on Fallout 76 and Elder Scrolls Blades
      • Battle Royale, bleh
    • Ghostwire Tokyo
    • ESO more season of the dragon content

    • Vampire the Masquerade 2
  • Ubisoft - June 10, 3pm CST
    • Watchdogs Legion
      • London, lots of playable characters and the ability to recruit everyone
      • No main character, you gather a ton of characters.  Individual characters can die but you can recruit more.
      • Lots of interesting systemic things going on
      • I’m more interested in this than any of the past Watchdogs games
        • I want to see a systemic game without a central hero

  • Square Enix - June 10, 8pm CST
    • FFVII Remake
      • March 2020
      • First game is midgar but an expanded Midgar
      • 2 BluRay discs
      • Real time action RPG
      • ATB bars that fill up when you land standard attack
        • Use them for tactical mode (slow mo almost turn based abilities)
        • Spells and special abilities
      • They must be stretching out the story.  This first game is only Midgar. Midgar in FFVII is only like 5-6 hours if you’re going slow and taking your time.  This game is 2 Blu Rays worth of game. They have to flesh it out.
        • Sephiroth is here and talking to Cloud in Midgar, so there are definitely changes.
        • FFVII isn’t actually that deep of a story.  It was for the time for a video game… but it’s really not overall.
        • What if they never make part 2?  Or 3? Or however many parts it will be.  Most of the main characters aren’t even in Midgar.  Cloud, Tifa, Barret, Aeris, and (barely) Red XIII.
