Being ported by Aspyr, only the single-player portion of Jedi Outcast—following the hero of Dark Forces and Jedi Knight, former Rebel spy-turned-Jedi-turned mercenary Kyle Katarn as he battles the Imperial Remnant and a fallen student of the New Jedi Order—will launch on both consoles September 24


Meanwhile, the full version of Jedi Academy—its single-player campaign and its totally rad multiplayer, which still thrives on PC thanks to a dedicated modding community—will come sometime in early 2020. While Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy have long been easily accessible on PC, this is the first time they’ve been on consoles since their original releases on the first Xbox and (and in Jedi Knight II’s case, the Gamecube) in the early aughts.


Jedi Knight returns. Well Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy will both be released for PS4 and Switch apparently. Jedi Outcast will be single player and Jedi Academy will be featuring SP and MP modes. Maybe not big news to everyone, but honestly it looks like it could be them testing the waters for interest in a new Jedi Knight game which I am all for it if so.


Next Batch of consoles..... Or well the rumors.

PS5 - 8 Cores Zen 2 - RAM - 16+ GB -  GPU - 9.2 Tflops somehow equal to 14.x Tflops on GCN? FEB 2020 reveal?

XB4 - 8 Cores Zen 2 - RAM - 16+ GB - GPU - 8 Tflops? Equal to some other number like 13 on GCN? JUNE 2020

Switch 2/ Switch Go? - Even more Portable Switch. Rumor of a better SoC that is cooler and faster maybe more powerful. Extra Mario Mushrooms.

Here we go! The payoff for no Sony at E3 this year (hopefully). I want to see more of that woman with the muscles from that footage last year. Also Joel, I guess, but mostly those big muscly arms.


Also, here's a trailer for a new Resident Evil game, which is unfortunately looking like a four-player co-op thing rather than RE3 Remake:

It's TGS, boyos! All the Japanese game trailers you weeb losers can eat:


Nioh 2 (coming early 2020):



FFVII Remake (oh my God how are these trailers so HOYPE?)



There's some FFVIIR Remake gameplay, too:



Resident Evil: Project Resistance (a 4 vs. 1 multiplayer escape thing):



Yakuza 7, with its real-time RPG battle system:

In what I thought might be a kind of guerrilla marketing technique to drum up some hype for Rocksteady's long-awaited next game... but have since learnt is probably just a way of commemorating the 80th anniversary of Batman as a character, the Epic Game Store is giving away SIX Batman games for free today. Batmans: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Knight, and Lego Batmans: 1, 2 and 3. Just log into the store and get'em, same as every other giveaway every other week with the EGS. It really puts into perspective just how much money Fortnite must be making for Epic to be able to give away multiple games for straight-up-free every week, huh? Like, man they must be making a lot of money from that game. A. Lot. Of. MONEY. Goodness gracious.


Speaking of the EGS, that neato John Wick strategy game is out October 8th:



I think this is such a cool idea for a John Wick game. You could never replicate a John Wick fight scene in a standard shooter or whatever, and even a Platinum action game might come up short, but this seems like such a clever way of depicting that inimitable John-Wick-ery through the medium of video games. btw John Wick 3 just came out on 4K Blu Ray and you'd better believe I'm getting it, baby.


And in unrelated news, look at this:




Game Pass is absolutely ridiculous. Didn't Bloodstained just come out like a week ago? I don't know how anyone is making money from these services, but I am way into getting a bunch of games for pocket change.


EDIT - Oh and Sony is holding a Nintendo Direct State of Play on September 24th, which lines up with that Last of Us 2 media event I posted about a couple of days ago, so maybe this is the big one.
