Really pleasantly surprised to see Prey get a DLC. I don't really bother with DLC but because I got Prey on deep discount and it was my GOTY last year, I feel like I need to buy this to show my support. I thought poor sales had doomed the franchise so delighted to see they have been working on stuff for the last year.

No idea if I'll ever play it, one for a rainy day I suppose :)

Yeah, I just can't see it having the same grand scale as Witcher 3. I spent 150 odd hours and about six months in that world. The characters were brilliant, the side quests and music and setting, it was all so brilliantly realised.

But, this is an entirely new game and so I suppose its unfair to judge it against a previous game just because it was developed by the same company. I can't help myself though!

One of the things that I think could be missing here for those not quite as old as me is that this isn’t just a generic ‘cyberpunk’ setting, it’s specifically a licence of a well known tabletop role playing game from the late 90s.

It was reasonably generic in itself, but it did have a setting and backstory and defined places and history. They’re drawing from less of a blank slate here than it might first appear.

I played a few sessions of the old RPG back in the late 80s. It was COOL.

In an 80s kinda way.

It’s one of the things I kinda like about the the whole Cyberpunk aesthetic now. When it originally appeared it was a possible future, or a version of one. But now, with the way technology has actually developed, it’s as retro a setting as the atompunk of Fallout or the Dieselpunk of something like Scythe.

I was kind of hoping Fallout 76 would be a kind of reboot of the franchise with the nuclear war coming in the 70's rather than the 50s/60s of the current setting. Thought it could have been fun to have a different aesthetic to the games. Ah well.

Absolutely, and I hope that CDPR absolutely nail that aspect and that particular atmosphere.

This caught my interest even before I saw Platinum's name pop up. What kind of game could it be...?

I'll set my alarm to catch the Sony conference.

If there's a chance RE2make will be there, I'll be there. This is serious.

Ubi was mostly more details on things we’ve seen before. Some decent stuff though, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey looks schweeeeeeeeet.

Yep odyssey looks awesome and love they are setting it during the peloponesian war because its such a cool setting its basically ancient Cold War but without the cold part, I hope they can do the setting justice. I also not gonna lie that kinda got me interested into looking into Origins and see what they did there.

Also Skull and Bones looks exactly like the pirate game I wanted Ubisoft to make since Assassins Creed 4 so thumbs up.

Trials looked good, and I especially liked the idea of letting community content creators design the game's tutorials.

Odyssey is... interesting. There were quite a few elements of the trailer that rubbed me the wrong way, but the setting and environmental design is a big plus for me. I fell off the AC bandwagon after Revelations, but this might end up being the one that wins me over. Jury's still out.

I was secretly hoping for a new Splinter Cell, though... :|

This Sony setup is really weird, if they only really have 4 games to show even if they are great this is gonna be rough...
