    Here are the games they showed at Microsoft's E3. > They've announced more media features than games at this point. No they didn't... Overall I thought it was pretty good.

    If you're like me you salivate over every detail you find on Skyrim, some of you may be purposely avoiding it so as to experience the game without expectations, regardless I'll be adding new content to this thread when I find it. Bon appetite. Pictures Here are few a few extracts of previews that have stuck out for me, but I've linked a list of recent previews for Skyrim. http://bethblog.com/index.php/2011/04/18/n...-for-a-landing/ http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/04/18...s-about-skyrim/ http://www.destructoid.com/preview-the-eld...im-199017.phtml http://www.giantbomb.com/news/skyrim-is-lo...s-evolved/3048/ Here are a number of written interviews & podcasts from those at Bethesda.

    What are you thoughts on the location? How about that lighting.

    Another celebrity death

    For some reason I was confusing this guy with the roller blade guy from Heartbreak High, but no we're talking about the original American version.

    Far Cry 3 Who else is pumped ?

    I actively dislike trailers that don't show actual gameplay because they misconstrude the real product but my passion for spreading gaming news neutralizes it. Leaked cinematic for FC3 on a Russian website. http://vd.reborn.ru/?a=watch&id=86350

    xbox 720 specs

    I have a gut feeling that Microsoft want to make a more casual oriented console than the X360, more like somewhere between the Wii and X360 so I actually think it's possible to see a tablet and a Kinect bundled in the X720 at $300. So while those 6770 are dissapointing for core gamers I think Microsoft are thinking in terms of potential consumer base and further mainstream penetration. I believe Microsoft are willing to sell the console at a loss at its launch but I remember reading that Steve Balmer has said they don't want to lose money on a console anymore so once they nail that supply chain it's got to be an entire box with peripherals at a cost point lower than $300. Consider Microsoft's current messaging for the X360, it's about entertainment & casual games.

    The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360

    The dev kits that developers use allow for higher resolution rendered screenshots with higher targeted MSAA, an X360 build can only run on an XDK. I do agree that these press shots or bullshots will look better than the actual game.

    The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360

    For those interested new press shots have been released for the X360 version http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-02-...360-screenshots

    xbox 720 specs

    With the original Xbox Microsoft literally integrated a Geforce 3 TI, for the X360 they used a custom made graphics card that was built to their specifications, actually it was the first graphics card to have a unified shader system which PC hardware have now emulated. If assuming the rumour is true it doesn't surprise me, Microsoft have for the last few years chased casual gamers, even from its inception the X360 was industrially designed to be palpable to casual gamers and XBLA initially facilitated those casual games. The Wii proved that cheap hardware and motion controls can sell a lot of consoles and it doesn't surprise me if Microsoft want to compete in that market space, I still think it's possible Microsoft will release a cheap console with cross mobile development in 2012 against the Wii U.

    Australia Day gaming meter image scale thing.

    Funny, some of them though are a long fetch. I would say the one I'm most charmed by is the TF2 sniper, he works within that world, his accent is spot on and he draws from recognizable Australian characteristics.

    Red Dead Redemption PC/Steam

    It's hard to get an educated opinion without knowing the sales of Rockstar games and the development story of RDR, from what I understand it took five years to get that game done and they had to invent certain technologies to create the vast draw distances in that game. It wouldn't surprise me if a bad attitude from the community deterred a PC release, gamers can be repulsive self centered lot

    GOTY 2011

    Diso I wish you didn't put the exclamation marks on Portal 2, it's a menial complaint but showing preference in the poll tarnishes the neutrality of what it should be. I chose LA Noire for my GOTY, in terms of writing and technology it's as close as a game has gotten to the movies. Intelligent is how I would describe it. Skyrim is satisfying but it's still janky and shallow, 90% of quests are fetch quests, people behave like corpses in their own little world, some of the art direction and all the ambient lighting ruins the aesthetic for me and I don't think the writing is that good. I remember listening to a lady who said she didn't want to get married because she wanted to focus on her daughter, but this isn't the 21st century, this is a primeval primitive world where people would live rough and desperately, there's no tension in the world, conflicts seem out of touch and convenient. There was a discussion about the bugginess of Skyrim? Scripting problems affect all versions, the X360 version has been relatively solid, the streaming bug when installed didn't make the game less enjoyable, the PS3 version though seemed to get a real beating.

    GOTY 2011

    We haven't yet, here's some suggestions for the poll. Portal 2 Bastion LA Noire Dead Space 2 Witcher 2 You can fit twenty items on a single Poll, maybe you can do multiple polls, AAA, DLG and mobile?
  18. I love Shadow Complex and Limbo, equally as much as any AAA games, something that digital platforms have leveraged into existence. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet was suppose to be the successor to these games in 2011 but what a delight it is to find a game that could carry the torch in 2012. It's called Deadlight, potentially a horror game set in a post apocalyptic version of 1980's America, the team comprises of a few veterans from games like Commandos, Motorstorm series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Diablo III, Heavy Rain, and Overlord II. It'll be launching during the Summer of Arcade campaign which is around E3. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-01-...ounced-for-xbla I don't want to hype a game but I think it's something to look out for.

    Resident Evil 6

    What is it with Japanese trailers being intense and emotional but not explaining the basic plot, I don't know what's going on. Japanese trailers are clearly influenced by anime's nonsensical intensity. But like some have said here it's bombastic over the top mainstream fodder and I don't say that with any vindication, it's the reality of mass appeal I think.

    If you combine Shadow Complex with Limbo what do you get?

    A teaser trailer has been released. I'm not so keen on the voice actor, he sounds a bit over the top.

    If you combine Shadow Complex with Limbo what do you get?

    I got some more screenshots.

    If you combine Shadow Complex with Limbo what do you get?

    It's described as a horror platform puzzler. I like how the game is set in the mid 80's, it's an interesting period. If you buy a X360 ezkaton you could play Shadow Complex and Iron Brigade. Boom.

    If you combine Shadow Complex with Limbo what do you get?

    I thought you had a X360 Ezkaton, depending on Microsoft's publishing role you might see a PSN port but if Microsoft are actually funding development it'll be XBLA forever.

    Xbox game recommendations?

    Microsoft are kicking off House Party Feburary 15, for those who don't know Microsoft like doing month long promotions by releasing good XBLA games in quick succession. Alan Wake American Nightmares I am Alive Nexuiz Warp Personally I'm looking forward to American Nightmare, from GT's campaign preview it looks pretty meaty, you get a 5 hour campaign, FMV, and a horde mode. http://www.gametrailers.com/video/ces-2012-alan-wake/725725 Looks great as well.
