I'm too much of a mark for the Rogue Squadron games so I'll be following this one. Then again my love for Battlefront just led to being salty about Dice's reboot so I won't have high expectations.

Baldur’s Gate 3 could enter early access as soon as August, if everything goes to plan

Baldur’s Gate 3 could arrive in early access as soon as this August. The announcement was made Saturday during the Guerilla Collective online game festival.

Developed by Larian Studios (Divinity: Original Sin) and inspired by the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, Baldur’s Gate 3 was first announced at E3 in 2018. A prequel of sorts launched last year, a tabletop module called Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus.

“COVID-19 has impacted the Larian team as it has many people around the world,” the studio said Saturday in a news release, “but the shift to work-from-home has gratefully been a successful one, allowing Larian to continue building toward an early access period of (maybe!) August. Larian will have more information about the specific content of early access in the future, but the team is committed to working directly with community feedback to evolve the game during its early access campaign.”

Based. Can't wait for this game. Larian has shown with Divinity that they understand good classic PC rpgs. Still bummed that it's turn based and not real time with pause, but haven't been this excited about a new game in ages.

* Guerrilla Games announced that their upcoming Horizon Forbidden West game will not be among the launch lineup for the PS5 and instead is currently planned for a potential 2021 release. In terms of comparisons, the game world's size stated to be "a bit bigger" than Horizon Zero Dawn's game world.

* Game Freaks held a Nintendo Direct-like Pokemon episode earlier today revealing a new mobile app called Pokemon Smile, a puzzle style game called Pokemon Cafe Mix for mobile and Switch, and a new Pokemon Snap game for the Switch. Bandai Namco was revealed to be the developer for the new Pokemon Snap game.

Yeah. Guerrilla can take all the time in the world with Horizon 2. With that trailer, probably hitting the West Coast, Mojave desert, maybe a major city or two.

I just want to ride a Thunderjaw into battle Primal style and destroy people.

Cyberpunk 2077 now pushed back to November 17.

Nice timing for a new console or 2 to get released around then.

San Francisco was written on something in the trailer if I recall so there is at least one major city.

Launch game. They realized the new consoles are far better suited to what they want to deliver with this game.

nvm, CDPR says that the true next gen upgrade for 2077 will not be released until sometime next year. At least it will be a free upgrade for those that already purchased though.

Was contemplating cancelling my preorder and grab the PS5 version if I was able to secure a console. But with this news, I'll stick with it.

For those that enjoyed the Bloodstained retro spin-off game called Curse of the Moon, developer Inti Crates announced that they are currently working on a sequel called Curse of the Moon 2.

It's coming to PC (Steam), PS4, Switch and Xbox One "soon," and will contain a multi-episode storyline "supervised" by Koji 'IGA' Igarashi. Zangetsu will return as the lead alongside of "three brand new characters," a roster that includes Dominique (the spear-wielding exorcist from the main game), Robert (a marksman) and Hachi (a corgi who uses steampunk armor).

Ally swapping is in (with their own life bars) as is the return of ally-specific shortcuts. A casual mode is baked-in (on top of the default "veteran"), which provides unlimited lives and eliminates the enemy knockback effect (so you don't fall to your doom).

I just want a really good Metroid game man

I'd go buy a switch for that. Probably going to end up getting one anyway, but that'd seal the deal.

Dude, could you imagine a metroid game done Nier Automata style?


The first time I played Nier, I was blown away bigtime at how many "game play styles" (Can't think of a better word) are in there!

One moment its top-down view, next side-scroll, and then BAM fully 3D world. That game (and especially music) is fucking beautiful. That shit would 100% work with a Metroid title.

I love how people are taking the new rumors of the Xbox Series S (the weaker, all digital version of the Series X rumored to be in development) costing 200 dollars seriously. It's still more powerful than the One X and they think it's going to cost less than the One S lmao. I call shenanigans of the highest order. If that's the case then they have a whole lot of Xbox One stock that will have to be discounted to like 100 bucks or it will never sell.

I mean I wouldn't even compare them. It's pretty much the same as comparing classic castlevania with metroidvania. People will have a preference, but they're both fantastic.

In other retro style news, The Messenger is coming to gamepass on June 25. If you have an iota of love for the NES Ninja Gaidens, you need to play that shit.

CD Projekt RED recently released a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 and some new details regarding the game's detective vision system called Braindance.



Quote:

It's called a Braindance and it's more or less a reliving of someone else's experience. Once you have access to the Braindance, you can see it through that person's eyes or use a free-floating camera in analysis mode. The Braindance sensor picks up things that even the subject didn't, like audio cues happening nearby. The future is very impressive!

Essentially, Braindancing (it's a noun but I will use it as a verb too) is Cyberpunk 2077's evolution of detective vision that games like Arkham Origins popularized. It's a way to scour a crime scene with the benefit of forensics, making it easy to gather additional intel. In the example shown during this morning's Night Wire City stream, it's simply a means of finding who murdered the junkies who held up a convenience store. (They're not robbing it for money, they're doing it to sell the Braindance experience of committing armed robbery) ...

If you're wondering where this all came from, CD Projekt Red didn't make it up. Braindances were an established part of Cyberpunk lore before 2077 came along. Although they're quite complicated and neat, I will use the term to reference anytime I fast-forward and rewind through a video. (e.g. I Braindanced through that YouTube video.)

Even though Braindances seem like they're going to be an integral part of protagonist V's experience, that's not their most common use in Night City. As this segment ends, Braindance guru Judy laments that most people just use them to jerk off.

Also recently announced was a new Cyberpunk 2077 anime series called Edgerunners and is arriving on Netflix in 2022.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will realise all of the intense action, explosive combat, and neon-soaked opulence of the Cyberpunk 2077 universe in animated form. The 10-episode series is being produced by industry veterans Studio Trigger, who are previously responsible for such hits as Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia.

Apparently some specs for Microsoft's second model in their upcoming next gen Xbox Series lineup was leaked recently.

Besides the Xbox Series X, this other one is rumored to be called the Xbox Series S and features downgraded specs to the point it can't do some of the high end stuff the Series X can but still retains some of the Series X's next gen features.

The Verge reports that Lockhart will have 7.5GB of available RAM, "a slightly underclocked CPU speed," and approximately 4 teraflops of GPU power; the Xbox Series X will have 13.5GB of available RAM and 12 teraflops of GPU performance ...

The expectation is that Lockhart will target 1080p and 1440p gaming rather than the 4K resolutions Xbox Series X aims for. It's also (obviously) cheaper while still keeping some of the next-gen features that will distinguish it from the current-gen. An SSD for fast loading times is presumed to be an example of one of these features. No price has been suggested because we don't yet even know the Xbox Series X price despite it having been revealed for well over half a year.

However, when Lockhart is revealed, it seems like it'll be formally dubbed Xbox Series S. That mirrors the current console setup of Xbox One S and the more powerful Xbox One X. Microsoft bringing that parallel forward will be intuitive for anyone who understands the current Xbox ecosystem of consoles.

Based on a recent investors meeting, Nintendo hinted they are currently working on ideas for a potential new replacement for their Nintendo Direct series.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Destructoid
Speaking to investors (as translated by VGC), president Shintaro Furukawa explained that although Nintendo still feels like Directs are "an incredibly effective way to present information," it might be time for something new. Furukawa is a bit vague here, but states: "Inversely, times change and so does the most effective way to promote products, so there is a chance that a new, better way to present this information comes about. So we always like to examine all of the possible ways to communicate this information to customers."

Reading between the lines a bit here, having watched every single Direct to date (and witnessed several live at E3), I can see what Furukawa is talking about here. The "Direct" format felt like a living breathing entity when the "whole crew" (Satoru Iwata, Reggie Fils-Aimé, Shigeru Miyamoto) was together. They were a huge part of what made the Directs special, and with Iwata gone and Reggie's departure from Nintendo, they effectively have no presenter.

Still, as Furukawa noted, Nintendo is in a great spot to shift into some new format. Nearly everyone, from gaming conferences to individual publishers, is copying details of the Direct format (even down to the vocal delivery and the font). It's a great place to be.

Next gen console games are currently rumored to be getting hit with a $10 price hike.

Basis for the rumor is the price of NBA 2k21 was recently revealed showing a price tag of $69.99.

2K Games is claiming added costs in the game's development was the reason since it was "built from the ground up."

Quote:

2K Sports, owned by Take-Two Interactive (who in turn owns Rockstar, and many other pricey properties), notes that the $10 premium is due to the fact that the new editions are "built from the ground up" for next-generation machines. Although Take-Two is seemingly alone in this venture right now, the writing has been on the wall for some time. Multiple industry veterans have called for a price increase for a long while, with the $60 standard holding for far longer than a lot of people expected it to.

This year's EVO tournament has been officially cancelled due to recent accusations against now former EVO CEO Joey Cuellar.

EVO initially suspended and later fired Cuellar over these accusations and the growing backlash towards the company.

Once the accusations became public, it lead to a wave of sponsors, competitors, game companies, and commentators bailing out on EVO leaving the company no choice but to drop this year's event.

Earlier today, Mikey, a fighting game competitor, shared his account of repeated incidents with EVO organiser Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar. In a Twitlonger story, Mikey recalled some of his time at the Southern Hills Golfland arcade in the late 90s.

A teenager at the time, Mikey would hang out with a group of older players, Cuellar amongst them, who frequented the arcade. This “old boys club” as he called it, would dare them to do “stupid shit just for a laugh” and reward them with free food or arcade game tokens.

“Wizard was especially into this. He would pay people hundreds of tokens to do things like take off their clothes and jump in the water hazard pools for certain amounts of times,” said Mikey.

“99% of the time, it was young boys. There is only a singular instance I know of where it wasn’t a young boy, and that singular instance, she was allowed to do it in the future, in whatever clothes she liked and only for a few seconds. But for all the boys (out of recollection 12-16) it was like 10-15 minutes, we HAD to be in our underwear (under the reasoning that it would be colder) and they were always challenges at the time so we couldn’t prepare change of clothes, towel, or anything like that.”

Mikey has other claims in his story, many of which are of Cuellar’s behaviour. Since his story came to light, EVO issued a statement saying that Cuellar has been placed on administrative leave while a third-party investigates these allegations.

“We are aware of the accusations that have been made against Joey Cuellar. The behaviour in these accusations runs directly counter to EVO’s mission of building a safe, welcoming environment for all of our players and attendees. We Take this responsibility seriously. Accordingly, Joey has been placed on administrative leave pending a third-party investigation,” it reads.

Other members of the fighting game community came out in support of Mikey, and a number of them said they had heard similar stories from other people in Cuellar’s circle.

It also appears this has been an open secret amongst the fighting game community. The two-year-old video below from Super Arcade’s Mike Watson recounts a different incident.

Sony circling Leyou Technologies Holdings Ltd. for a possible acquisition. Two other Chinese video game developers are also in the mix.

Noted developers under Leyou are Digital Extremes (Warframe), and Splash Damage. Splash Damage is the big prize since they've been cozy with Microsoft for a while now.

Research firm IDG Consulting recently added more fuel to the fire of next gen console games getting a $10 price hike from $60 to $70.

In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, the firm revealed more publishers are currently looking at a $70 price point for their next gen games based on recent talks they had with their sources.

Of course, that figure doesn't take into account all of the extra monetization prospects of games.

IDG says that according to "their channel checks" more publishers are looking at a $70 price point, with the concession that "not every game should garner" that new MSRP. That said, once the floodgates open and the usual suspects (WB, EA, Take-Two) make their move, there's probably no going back.]

Publishers have said in the past that they have to pursue a micro transaction heavy economy to avoid a price hike for the overall cost of games at retail. This must mean we’re seeing end of the aggressive micro transaction economy, right?

Right?

Well they also said cease of instruction booklets and going digital would also help keep costs down.

On the way off chance they were telling the truth (and I mean way off chance), the constant push for higher visual fedility and sound output pretty much cancels out any costs 'saved' from past cost cutting excuses.

Starting to look like that decade or so of $50 games was itself the fluke during a fierce point of the early console wars. $70 dollars was inevitable and what they really want is the $100 price point.

... you mean the $100 price point that already is a thing, since the $60 price usually has content cut, but it's presented as paying extra for "extra" content?

We're not cheating you if we don't call it cheating.

Content is not 'cut' in most cases but I see what you're saying.
