Video Game Hype Thread


Oh this sounds interesting. A cyberpunk thing and hearing about it on the forum. I’ll bite.


I saw no such doubling down, just a lukewarm apology. There was only joke directed towards transgender, another sounds like some bizarre GamerGate tweet which doesn’t make any sense.


In case you want to see how to do trailer.


re: Battle chef brigade

If you got the game free as part of the twitch prime special it auto-upgraded to the Deluxe version.


I liked Spelunky, but I never got BIG into it like I know some people are.

Spelunky 2 is coming out. Demo playable at PAX this weekend.


There was a period where I was pretty into it but it only lasted like a week and I never actually beat it in any capacity.





This shit has me rather worried about artifact (larger thread beyond the link):


Goose Game stole the show at PAX West. Check out this commentary with the creators:




A review of the hip-hop Noir detective game, STONE, that includes about 15 minutes of narrated gameplay.


Hype is decreasing…


WTF is up with this? After Amazon failed to release Breakway, the game designed to be eSports first, I don’t trust them for shit. Also no way this can get ahead of that new Fallout.


Without getting into details because I don’t want any reason for the Amazon legal hammer to come down on me, there were a lot of good reasons for canning Breakaway while it was still in pre-alpha (I don’t remember if we called it that when it was playable by the public, but for all intents and purposes it was basically Early Access). I played a lot of both games, and New World has always been a better game in my opinion, and I don’t even like that genre particularly. I’m curious to see how much they’ve done in the past year and more since I last played it. The comparison to Fallout 76 is apt though, so we’ll see if it can compete.

I don’t think I can actually play this game. Too stressful. Still, very unique and good idea that I’m sure will be fun for many people. Maybe I’ll just watch people stream it.


This reminds me of early PC titles like “Air Traffic Controller Sim”

At 0:35-0:38 that some dodgy UI design for an Emergency Response sim. If I’m dispatching emergency vehicles I don’t want to have to scroll through police cars when you need fire trucks.
