I appreciate I'm not the TARGET AUDIENCE for any of these fight fight shoot shoot games but you'd think they would want to mix it up a bit and try to reach beyond the AMERICAN TEENAGE BOY DEMOGRAPHIC.

And no, one Mario Odyssey + Breath of the Wild indie clone is not enough.

Saying that, I would probably buy that Ghostwire Tokyo game because it looks BONKERS. And NOT IN A GOOD WAY :D

There wasn't much there for me sadly :( I was already interested in Forspoken but the bits of dialogue in the new trailer actually put me off a bit, it was very quippy and annoying :( I'm sure the Spider-Man sequel will be great, and Insomniac's Wolverine game will definitely be worth a look. God of War looked like more of the same, and I gave up on the previous one so... oh well. I did like the look of that Hawaiian-style Breath of the Wild thing where you can pet crabs on the beach 🦀

The KOTOR remake will be fun, especially if they properly modernise it, but it was really missing a good proper platformer.

Where is Ape Escape 4 please?

The Alan Wake remake looks fun after Control. A Wolverine game would be nice but I found Spider-Man to be a flat experience.

I’m always down for more God of War, loved the first one.

Mm yeah it does feel like they’re running out of ideas now, that’s why I still don’t have a PS5 (or 4)…

*waits for latest Mario WiiU flop to be rereleased on switch :)*

Here for God of War but also a bit gutted it doesn’t look next gen and it doesn’t look look much different. Although I’m hoping it’ll be like RE4 where the previews made it look like it was entirely based in 3rd world Europe. And then we got The Island :disco:

Taking Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, God of War and GT7 out of the equation (which we safely can for a few years), most of the games just felt like dreary emo variations on the same concept. I found the whole thing terribly disappointing.

The only thing that stood out as being different was Tchia. I can't even say it looked good, but it was just nice to see something with a bit of colour and imagination.

State of Play next Wednesday night:

Around twenty minutes, mostly focusing on third party stuff and already announced games. Crossing everything for more FFXVI news :eyes:

Oh me too. There is nothing coming out in the near future to satisfy my requirements of the game needing to be realistic and "could happen in real life" and totally devoid of any imagination type-genre. Although I only bought my PS5 to play F1 :david: and Im still stuck on the first level of Hitman III after 3 months so I don't suppose Im many game developers target.

I know they’re not producing enough but this has been the most underwhelming launch so far. The previous gen still works just fine.

I do like how snappy it is but other than that, I could have stuck with the PS4 so far. Ratchet & Clank is the only exclusive I've got and it's a bland old rehash of the previous games. The much vaunted portal shifts are really underwhelming. Still, it is nice to be playing the PS4 stuff at a higher frame rate. It never bothered me any before, but going back to Valhalla on the PS4 yesterday showed what a difference it makes.

I've been getting into Hitman 3 recently. The second level is excellent, and the only one I've replayed so far. The others I'm having a little harder time getting to grips with but I'll get there, and I have all the 1+2 levels available too, which I'm definitely going to go back to

I'll echo the non-sensational PS5 sentiments, it's definitely not the same feeling as when I got the PS4. the vv quick load times do make up for some of it though. I feel even more bereft now that Dying Light 2 has been postponed

I haven't played much newer Hitman but the Budapest spa hotel level back in Hitman: Codename 47 was on heavy replay :disco:
