I'd love to be wrong, but I feel like we're getting a monkey's paw sequel.

you're getting the game they were making anyway with a BGE skin so they can chase the fad they're doing anyway and then blame fans of the first game when it flops for not supporting it

There was basically no end game, and Bungie had rigged various xp mechanics.

It got dull really quickly.

At least Destiny 2 felt like a full and complete game for $60. EA is way more concerned about being taken to court by every governing body in the EU over loot boxes/microtransactions which were much more egregious in Battlefront 2 than in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 was a flawed model (and to be fair, I think people expected too much of Destiny 2) but Battlefront 2 was highway robbery that EA though they could get away with, since they had biggest merchandising machine on planet Earth.

Oh I absolutely agree with you. With Destiny 2, although it got pretty boring fast when you hit max level, it still felt like a legitimate full price game while you were getting there. I had enough fun with it playing with pals that I didnít particularly feel Iíd been ripped off. I canít see myself going back to it, but it was fine while it lasted.

Battlefront 2 though was a completely different kettle of fish. I got it in a sale and I still feel cheated.

Iím not particularly hyped for Anthem, maybe I will be nearer the time, who knows. Iíve no idea how much my lack of interest is coloured by Destiny 2 burnout. I am very interested to see what EA have learned when they tell us more about Battlefield V though.

I think the Giant Bomb guys said that it seems like they type of game a lot of people want out of Destiny is a full-priced game that also has a monthly subscription. Or rather, that a version of Destiny 2 that had the post-launch support people wanted out of it would require that type of business model to be sustainable. And considering FFXIV seems to be the only game, let alone MMO, that is currently sustaining that business model, I imagine Bungie/Activision getting people to swallow that pill would be nigh impossible.

The problem Bungie has is that within the gameworld itself, it very much feels like you are playing an old subscription based MMO, what with the way missions/strikes/raids are set up and presented to the player. So it's not too crazy for people to expect an MMO-like experience out of a game that constantly presents itself as one. But again, the business model does not allow for the type of game it seems Bungie really wants to make/its fans really want to play.

Of course none of this excuses the secret depreciating XP value fuckery and other poo poo Bungie pulled to make people's end game artificially longer.

From Software's working on three games right now, Armored Core, a dark fantasy thing, and "Shadows Die Twice" which is probably either Tenchu or a Tenchu-inspired game, and since Shadows Die Twice was at PSX the VGAs last year I imagine it'll be at Sony this year.

Ghost of Tsushima is one of the games I'm looking forward to because part of me hopes it's Phantom Pain in feudal Japan and a spiritual successor to Tenchu.

Well to be fair it wasn't marketed heavily by Microsoft and it is also not on Steam so ya...

COH1 was amazing and had a great community. Loved watching replays and learning from the some of the best players. CoH2 was good but it didn't have the same depth as the original.

As for Age of Empires 4. I am hesitant since it is Relic who is making it. I like most of their stuff but they are very hit or miss. Also their RTS's tend to be a certain way. The fighting and micro tend to be more important the macro/base building.

My E3 predictions

1. We will not see new Castlevania game, and I'm so thirsty for this that I would be super excited even if they pulled that same poo poo that made me not to buy any Sega product ever again like they did with that Shenmue begging campaign

2. We will hear about the next Resident evil witch is game I will buy and enjoy every second

3. We will hear about the next Gears of war witch is game I will buy and enjoy every second

4. There was just a new God of war game witch is really good, so I'm fine if there is no talk about this franchise

5. Last of us 2 will get its release date

6. We will hear about next Assasins creed witch is game I will buy and enjoy every second

I own and have finished BG&E on every platform it's available on, and I couldn't be less interested in what they showed. It's just another boring open world/s game with a billion icons. Also, the original did have an edge to it, but managed that without going full edgelord.

I donít think anybody knows what kind of game BG&E2 even is yet. There was that intro cinematic and some pretty demo graphics showcase promising freeform exploration ala NMS at last yearís E3 and that was pretty much it.

Sega isn't developing Shenmue III, the original creator is making it through his own company. Sega is barely involved at all, they're just letting the license be used.

Pretty sure Sony directly funds the series (you also see this with every piece of electronics in the series like TV's and cell phones being Sony products) so I wouldn't hold my breath on either a PC or Xbox release.

The reason that C&C Generals 2 died is that EA couldn't figure out how to add in lootboxes without having the pay to win aspect completely destroy any semblance of balance.

I think that if they ever try to resurrect the C&C brand, just ripping off Foxhole and making a huge world where everyone plays a single unit would be pretty fun.

I'm excited to see Battlefield. I think we'll see Starfield from Bethesda along with some ESO stuff most people don't care about.

I think we finally see some Borderlands 3 and Resistance 4. Maybe a teaser for the new BioShock.


My longshot never in a million years is it going happen hope is a Medal of Honor reboot. EA wouldn't want to take anything away from BFV but a teaser or at least acknowledgement that it's being worked on would be fantastic to me.

I believe it's all but confirmed to be WW2. 64 players on a D-Day map would be bonkers.

I agree though, I'd like to see more historical FPS war games. There was that Roman Empire era Call of Duty that was never finished. I'd like to see more games like War of Rights make it to console or even some more recent conflicts like Korea or Vietnam get coverage.

EA just bought Respawn wholesale, there is no way they are making another competitor to their own product when they now have Titanfall, Battlefield, and Battlefront all vying for a similar audience.
