I had fun watching the Summer season Recreation Fest, and I acquired two fantastic surprises: Ubisoft is making a brand new Prince of Persia title, with the fashion of the traditional platformers and the story culled from the unique idea behind Murderer’s Creed and Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth. However I felt that one thing was lacking in the course of the present — a sure je ne sais quoi, if you’ll. I believe a part of it was that a lot of the issues we noticed had already been revealed. Many of the information that was match to print from the present have been launch dates. I additionally suppose it was a mistake to dedicate a lot time to 2 TV present trailers — particularly the Witcher, which is simply tangentially associated to video games. Name me spoiled (I wouldn’t disagree with you), however the entire occasion felt a bit sluggish to me.
Nonetheless, there are roughly 6,000 different exhibits occurring within the subsequent few days, so there’s greater than sufficient time for issues to get thrilling. I hope Xbox has some methods up its sleeve — to this point I’m listening to that Fable and Hellblade II are probably additions, as are Avowed and Excellent Darkish. We’re additionally going to get one other peek at Starfield. Ubisoft and Capcom each probably have some attention-grabbing issues to indicate us, and I’d be remiss if I not noted good previous RGG Studios, which is able to hopefully have extra Like a Dragon for us. Additionally, maybe I’m a celebration of 1 on this, however I’m trying ahead to the Healthful Recreation showcase. We might all the time use extra cozy video games.
There have been a couple of different, smaller bulletins that caught my consideration. We’re getting a remaster of Shadows of the Damned, one of many video games from Suda51’s loopy oeuvre. Atlus additionally by chance introduced a Persona 5-based techniques video games and a remake of Persona 3, each of which sound like enjoyable. As ordinary, the Devolver present has the wackiest titles, corresponding to Child Steps, a literal strolling simulator. Oh, and one of many video games from Summer season Recreation Fest that seemed most attention-grabbing to me, personally, is Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden — Don’t Nod’s curious soul-retrieval simulator.
In different information, I’ll be spending nearly all of the weekend watching extra of the exhibits — Xbox received’t catch me napping. However in my spare time, I’ll most likely preserve taking part in Diablo IV and a few extra of Concord: The Fall of Reverie. It could be a really crowded few days, however it’s vital to take a while to loosen up. Right here’s hoping the following few exhibits get the blood pumping.
