Wolverine announcement made people go nutts. So if she is saying there's a big reveal at Game Awards then it's probably going to be something that excites everyone just like Wolverine.

Supposedly there is also some other event possibly happening in December, not sure if its before or after Game awards though.
I'm really having a hard time believing that. Depending on what it is and how it's presented, sure they could announce it merely a week or two before it happens. But at this point I'm not holding my breath when we're almost two weeks into November and TGA is still the only event we have confirmed.

They want a stage presence, and want to deflat anything Microsoft tries to announce.

He also said that there will be around 40-50 games/game tv/movie spin-offs but new game reveals will be in double digits.

This year has been pretty rough for graphics whores with only Ratchet and Forza impressing, and pretty much nothing else to look forward to on the horizon. So it's great to see that the industry will finally be revealing some true next gen games next month. I want the CPU to finally be fucking utilized. Same goes for this SSD mumbo jumbo thats been shoved down our throat. Let's see how it enhances game design and graphics. Will Horizon add flying in the PS5 version? Exciting times ahead.

Suicide on hold.

I still find that whole flying mechanic thing for Horizon weird. So a PS5 version would have a flying mechanic and the PS4 wouldn't? Usually stuff like that is part of the storyline and is essential to your skillset to play the game.

Yep. Even the best looking games we have seen this gen like Demons, Ratchet and Forza are still held back in many ways. I think Avatar's graphics will be the standard next gen with linear games looking even better.

Even Starfield looks incredible. This is running realtime on a 2080 Super which is around 10% faster than the 2080 which itself is on par with the XSX in standard rasterization.








And Bethesda is NOT a studio known for pushing visuals. For reference, This was their best work on last gen consoles.



So if Bethesda is able to make Starfield look that good, imagine what other devs can do.
Oh my sweet summer child.... That was CGI.

Nah, it's all realtime. Confirmed by Bethesda. It's not even using any cinematic tools.



In fact they didnt even use any cinematic tools.

In an ArtStation post from the trailer's lighting artist Keith Beltramini just a few days after the trailer's release, it has been revealed that the footage shown at E3 was entirely captured using the Creation Engine 2, with no other tools used to enhance the visuals, un like most other cinematic trailers. "Using our own Creation Engine 2, we created this entirely in game without any cinematic tools. Working closely with director, Istvan Pely, I assisted in art direction for anything lighting and mood related."

Looking forward to some vague "in engine" teaser of games coming in 2025.

No you are a 100% right. Stuff like this is tied to game engines and we would never see that.

However, in one of the interviews the director refused to rule out Flying in Horizon, simply saying that they are aware flying is a highly requested feature.

Hmm, I have a hunch that the majority of the next gen stuff will be: Indie, Multiplyer only (MMO etc.), and/ or have a really far release date.
They will also likely be cg trailers. We’ve been on the keighly rodeo enough times to know whats up. He also knows that the tripple a reveals are the most valuable ones he gets. Thats why he either puts it at the beggining of the show, or at the very end.

I know I would since dismissive but why would they do it this year?

My memory ,even though is not that great, tells me that they always avoid announcing or getting involved in many conferences or events (even huge ones like E3) and prefer to do their own thing.

It might be AAA games in terms of production, but in terms of an actual next gen visuals, that ship sailed. Everything from here on out will be baby steps. No more leaps forward.

TGAs and any “video game awards” are scams and jokes. The only people who actually care about these events are console warriors and sad people who need validation for their purchases. I will wait until after the event to see the trailers and not waste my time watching trash.

Developers have indeed just scratched the 9th gen consoles' surface, as every game that released so far was supposed to be a release window title that got more or less affected by COVID, and the ones that should have released in late 2021 got postponed.


The fact that Geoff Keighley said it doesn't make it any less true.

He is saying NEW game announcements are in the double digits, so that's at least 10. Then, there are games that have been announced that we haven't actually seen much or anything at all, like Suicide Squad gameplay, Hellblade 2, Final Fantasy XVI, Breath of the Wild sequel, etc.

I think it could be a very good year regarding new games whether they are a surprises or already announced. I expect even some of the smaller games will be good such as Stray.

Watching these events with live streamers can be quite fun.

If Cyberpunk wins any positive awards, I'm not sure how anyone could take this seriously? If I recall it won awards last year, prior to being released. Or was that from IGN?
