So, an interesting headline about the Scorpio:

 

Scorpio won't do anything for you if you don't have a 4K TV

 

Huh. I suppose the dream of bumping games up to 1080p, 60FPS is dead, then. You get the standard 900p, 30ish on your regular Xbox One, or 4K 30ish on the Scorpio. That really seems like a missed opportunity; I wonder how many people even have 4K TVs these days. I mean, obviously that number will rise as the years go on and 4K makes 1080p obsolete, but these are still TVs we're talking about; people tend to buy them and stick with them for years. I have no intention of upgrading my 1080p TV any time soon, and I must have had it for... God, seven or eight years, at least. When did I get so old?

 

- Nier Automata looks amazing:

- Sony is making an ice cream blaster 'PS VR Aim Controller'. I guess it's two Move controllers built into one plastic thing for shootybang times in VR games; designed specifically for the game Farpoint but I imagine you'll be able to use it with other things. Remember big dumb plastic peripherals, you guys?

- The Gwent standalone game actually has a 'beefy singleplayer mode':


It’s going to have a full-fledged single-player mode. There will be several campaigns—each 10+ hours, the developers say—with top-down maps and even optional areas to explore. Your main character, who will vary depending on the story, will make decisions ranging from menial to significant, in true Witcher style.
 
During a short demo of Gwent at an E3 presentation this afternoon, CD Projekt Red showed off an early section of this new campaign. The premise: Geralt is working as an escort for a group of mercenaries, and they find that one of their men has been slaughtered, apparently by a demon. After some dialogue, they go off into the world, which is a simple cel-shaded map with a top-down 2D perspective. In the demo, Geralt and crew decided to ignore the main path and instead explore a nearby ruin, where they’re rewarded with a card that they can use in future battles.
 
Combat encounters, as you might expect, play out via Gwent matches. Different enemies will have different gimmicks based on their characters, their abilities, or even the weather.

 

Karolina Stachyra, writer of the Bloody Baron questline in the main game, is working on Gwent. Yespls.

Whelp, that's all of the possible reasons not to get a Scorpio checked off my list.

I mean, did anyone really expect that to work without a 4K TV? It's the same with the Xbox One S. If you don't have a 4K TV then you can't access that functionality. Thankfully, my TV actually has that functionality; so in the event I pick up an S/Scorpio I'm not going to be missing out.

Anyway, Ubisoft are giving away a free game every month for the rest of the year to celebrate their 30th anniversary; starting with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. You can pick it up over here. Downside? You need a uPlay account. Which isn't really a problem, like, at all.

Good choice. An Oldie but a damn goodie. :)

 

EDIT: I wanna watch the P5 gameplay trailer, but I also don't. Part of the reason I adored Persona 4 so much is that I knew nothing about it going in, other than that it was a good JRPG. I want to keep that surprise for P5.

@Ocelot
Scorpio being grabage crap means that the nobody will buy it and we can avert the Dark Terror Future of Videogames, so that's nice.

Microsoft Lol Scorpio has 6Tflops and its only helping 4k Tvs? Lies. Next year they will change thier story. All of thier exclusive games will have godly graphics at E3. New message It will look better on Scorpio. Who buys new Tv for games? I buy monitors.  Scorpio is 5 times more GPU grunt than Xbone. 

 

There is word that Sony pulled Red Dead trailer due to the Orlando thing. Hmm._.


Next Batch of consoles...........

PS4 Pro - 4.2 Tflops - 2016

Scorpio - 6 Tflops - 2017

NX - 2017 - Mario Mushrooms, and Link's Hat powered device. 

PS5 - 2019/2020 (Powered by AMD Zen family APU)

XBNext - 2019/2020/2021 (Powered by AMD Zen family APU)

Not true, nor does it make sense.

Because honestly, if they wanted to avoid guns they wouldn't have had that CoD Infinity Warfare demo or the Days Gone demo. Probably Red Dead 2 wasn't even in the cards.

You know...  I should really invest in a 4K PC monitor, given how I play both my PC and Xbone games from there...

If only Naughty Dog were still trustworthy enough to remaster their own game. Hopefully Vicarious will pull it off.

Im the meantime, at least I still have my original copies.

Was there a Crash trailer that I missed outside of the Skylanders thing? Do we know who is doing the remastering? I assume it's more involved than taking a PS3 or PS2 game and making it run at 60 fps.

Tell me about it. Also, if only they cared enough to bother with anything other than The Last of Us, which they happily remastered comparatively five minutes after it released (pretty much exactly one year). We're lucky we got such decent Jak & Daxter remasters for PS3, which was mostly handled by another company, but at least Naughty Dog helped out a lot.

 

Anyway, at least it isn't Bluepoint Games doing it. Trust me, be happy about that.

I'm sure they'll find a way to completely misunderstand and ruin the art direction of Crash, they always do.

I just like to sit back and pretend there were no other Crash Bandicoot games made after Wrath of Cortex.

Final Fantasy XII HD Gameplay:

 

 

Nier Automata gameplay (skip to the 2:00 hour mark). Gawrsh I can't wait for this game. I'm glad Platinum's been getting work with Star Fox and TMNT, and I'm looking forward to RPGing it up in Scalebound, but this game looks right up there with Bayo and Revengeance in terms of production values and quality of dude-slicing gameplay:

 

 

Paper Mario Colour Splash trailer (coming out October 7th, 40 minute gameplay demo here):

 

 

Rhythm Heaven Megamix trailer (surprise released TODAY! You can get it on the eShop now in America, but it's not out in PAL land yet):

 

 

BoxBoxBoy:

 

 

Tokyo Weeb Sessions #Anime trailer (I'm actually totally buying this, it looks ridiculous :P):

 

 

Yakuza Zero trailer (get this game inside my face nao):

Todd Howard has confirmed that the Elder Scrolls VI is in development; alongside two other large projects. Given what we heard back at the start of the year about the game being a direct sequel to Skyrim (building into the Second Great War), and the mechanics Howard's talking about, I'd imagine they may be angling to improve the number of NPCs/AI handling dramatically.

But that's just guesswork.



Also, for the people moaning about Scorpio being impractical without a 4K TV, here's a screenshot comparison of how the console will improve image quality on a 1080p TV, as well as a brief quote to explain it.


Don't know why you're being downvoted: this clears up the confusion caused by Phil and others saying "there will be no benefit if you're still at 4k." Well, there will be, because of the downsampling you get a very effective form of anti-aliasing which creates a clearer image with more detail at 1080p.


This'll be a bit clearer in games like Shadow of Mordor, where the reverse was true. It's partly why Phil is encouraging people to buy a 4K TV/screen to get the full benefits.

Realistically, people should be talking about HDR more.
