Literally looking forward to all of these (Flight Sim already out I know but still looking forward to actually experiencing it sometime soon, hopefully my mid tier pc can handle it at decent frame rates)
Some others I would add are Song Of Iron (already mentioned in thread), Tunic, Dead Static Drive.
Call of the Sea and The Ascent are both really high on my list, they look fantastic and I enjoyed the interviews they both have done with Major Nelson. We spend too much time obsessing about big budget first party games. There will be lots to play while waiting for Halo to release
Also looking forward to playing Gears Tactics, and hoping Flight Sim comes sooner rather than later.
I’m 100% all in for Bright Memory Infinite, Crossfire X (campaign) and The Ascent. For those interested in Bright Memory Infinite, check out FYQD Studio channel on YouTube because the entire trailer gets uploaded and there’s five or so different trailers including a new one from a few weeks ago.
Not to enter into the whole console warrior debate really but the dismissing of certain types of games is probably the WORST thing about the gaming space right now. Its awful. Especially when the games that are routinely dismissed are the very ones I enjoy playing most. The ridiculous thing about it was back towards the end of the 360/PS3 era a meme used constantly was ‘Xbox has no variety all their games are the same - Sony take risks’. Yet just look now?
That is because most of these people’s idea of what’s “quality” is intrinsically predicated on one type of gaming experience ie the “blockbuster cinematic action adventure” which arguably the likes of Sony has mastered, but are far from the only type of experiences that should be valued and demanded.
