Cool thanks. Don't know if anyone watches RKG on YouTube (the Prepare To Try guys) but they're live streaming the MS conference, pre show chat is live right now.

Because of course Neo is in Cyberpunk (I’m still hoping they have Ciri in there as well, trust me, it would be in canon)

They've done a good job so far of convincing me I need to buy and Xbox and Gamepass.

As with most people it seems, I like Keanu very much, but personally I hate the stunt casting of recognisable actors in games because it takes me right out of the world.

Totally agree, Leon. It's part of the reason I'm not especially excited about Death Stranding. While Stefanie Joosten looks very much like Quiet, I'd never seen her before in my life!

Personally most interested in the MS Flight Sim so far. It looks very relaxing.

12 Minutes seems like the type of high-concept stuff that could either be absolutely amazing with the proper direction or some David Cage-style debacle. But it looks interesting so far.

Edit: Oh, and yeah. I don't like this insistence on shoe-horning the likenesses of real actors into games these days either. It reeks of an undue need for mainstream acceptance and defeats the purpose of computer-generated character models.

Yeah I thought that looked really interesting. And now Lego Forza, haha! Pretty impressed with this conference.

That was a genuine surprise. Lego Forza looks beautifully daft.

Frank Skinner was on tragedy plus time at 9pm so I haven't been watching. That Minecraft Dungeons looks like it has a chance to not be awful though



"From the creators of minecraft", I'm assuming fedora boy has been officially erased from minecraft history now and is happy to just rest on his laurels, scoff jelly beans and act like a gaping camel flange on the internet.

Pretty cool conference overall. There weren't that many heavy-hitters for my personal tastes, but I like how Microsoft have learned to put the games front and center because ultimately, that's what people really care about.

I didn't care all that much for all the tech fetishism of their new console, but what caught my attention was the mention of "four generations of games" being playable on the system. If that means that it will come with full backwards compatibility with Xbox Originals, 360 & XBO games right out of the box, then that's definitely a fantastic selling point. I might even jump back on-board the Xbox train depending on how Halo Infinite turns out to be.

I sincerely hope Sony's taking notes. Or even Nintendo, for that matter.


PS: No DMC5 DLC, though. :(

I tuned in for the end there and one of their pretend egg heads was like "the combination of the SSD and the solid state drive"
and I was like "they're the same thing, you absolute turnip!". If I was in the room I would have stormed the stage, wrestled the mic from one of the t-shirt and suit jacket combo cretins and explained why I still use HDDs.

Obsidian’s new one had a very Fallout vibe to it, and there’s also Wasteland 3. So it’ll be nice and easy to forget that Fallout 76 ever existed... hehe.

Pleased I have gamepass, lot of good stuff will be on there (and Metro Exodus? Surprised that didn’t get a bigger crowd response, that thing isn’t very old at all).

12 Minutes is yet another experimental game that Annapurna are publishing. They’ve not had a dud yet so... fingers crossed.
