    This is still a thing lol. Coming next month. BUT it looks like a full priced game, with a “free to play” amount of premium buy content.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2

    Hopefully we will see on Scorpio.

    Also, this weekend:

      Dood! What game is this? Just a screenshot and zero info? Surely that isn’t Fortnight! LOL!

      (And funny about Fortnite, because it was originally slated for PC only. Their revenue model is very throw-uppy. The game could be totally awesome, but I just do not want to support that kind of model.)

    Sorry, been trying to add any news as I stumble from work/mobile. It’s a screen shot from Star Wars Battlefront 2.

      I thought maybe it was. And no apologies necessary. I am doing the same thing. I LOVE it that you and Blank are all on this stuff here! Keeps me in the loop!

    Marvel Heroes coming to XBO end of this month, worth looking at:


    More AC leaks… but this one seems cool. Its the cover of the next Game Informer. Seems like AC meets far cry.

      Interesting games.

      Just a heads-up, I won’t even be home until 1am PST today. I do, on the other hand, plan on jumping on much earlier on Sunday, if only to watch others game. Have fun! and keep postin! (Supervising/baby sitting pre-exams and am hoping I can get wi-fi work in that room so that I can watch game 4 and stay on top of the gaming news.)

    Fortnite looks like it could be fun. I like the art design. I will watch very closely for it to go fully f2p, or all available for a single price. The Rocket League model is also perfectly acceptable. Anything else and I say no thank you.

    as highlighted by PA

    This is the first time I have thought that I would be interested in VR, and thought that I would be able to engage fully, for extended hours. It must be because it is Ubisoft, and for the PS4 but not Xbox that I completely missed this one.

    Shit is crazy. I would make friends just so that I could play this.

    I am curious to see M$’s third party presence. Most of the big 3rd party titles are aligned with Sony for advertising rights (for obvious reasons), so I am curious how this impacts what Microsoft can demo. I was hoping to see “something” for Read Dead 2 and COD WW2, but both of these are aligned with Sony, so seems unlikely. Read Dead will look absolutely insane though.

      VERY useful! Thank you! (And for all the other posts, as well.)

    EA conference notes:

    –BF1 DLC (snow tho)
    –Sports ass suck
    –Youtube streamers wacky cool ads
    –Need For Speed: Visually looks awesome, looks like burnout + fast and furious movies.
    –A WAY OUT: COOP Prison break/other stuff game. Something different, could be cool. Interesting dynamic “split screen” (even when playing online) seeing other players perspective. One can be in cut scene, while other is playing etc.
    — Name dropping Scorpio, some sports games samples of the graphically fidelity.
    — NEW IP: Anthem. “Combining the newest technologies. “See more at Microsoft E3 Press Conference”. Appears to be marketing exclusive to Xbox.
    — Star Wars Battlefront 2: Graphics looks insane, appears to have a lot more content and single player. All DLC (maps, DLC are free).

      Anthem could be cool, but they need to have a clear visor so we can see the protagonists face. That was the biggest problem with the Master Chief. No emotion because you couldn’t see his face.

      A Way Out looks pretty fantastic, actually.

      And you’d have to be pretty jaded not to think that Battlefront 2 doesn’t look incredible. Buying it is another thing, but man, it looks like Star Wars, and on the Scorpio and with a 50″ 4K screen and 7.1 sound, unbelievable. For fans, it would be a system seller.

      And this was pretty funny!
