More Thoughts From Me Special Edition: Is Summer Game Fest Over Yet?

Summer Game Fest, the Geoff Keighley pre-E3 event, happened today. I watched it all and now I have some thoughts on it. I thought that Summer Game Fest would never end. The Geoff Keighley event lasted a long time and after that was an indie game focused Day of the Devs event. Let’s talk about the main Summer Game Fest event first. Geoff Keighley is the host of the Game of Awards an also the host of Summer Game Fest.…

Microsoft Will Impress at E3 – Just Ignore the Acquisition Hype

There’s a lot of problems with the way Microsoft are seen in by parts of the gaming community – and the acquisition hype is becoming part of that. See how gleefully “Craig” was shared after the Halo reveal as proof of that. I’ve never seen a quarter second image shared so widely, even though it would be easy to do for just about any game you care to name. There’s another issue forming though. It’s become increasingly apparent the closer…

The Cross-Gen Concern is Getting Old

There’s been a fresh wave of concern over the prospect of “cross-gen” games this week – or games that’ll come to both the PS4 generation consoles and PS5/Series X. It’s getting beyond old. Every few months it’s the same thing: “we can’t see what these devices are truly capable of until they ditch PS4 and Xbox One.” And while that’s partly true in some extreme use cases – situations where the game’s physics are tied to a better GPU or…

It’ll be the usual combination of okay trailers, seemingly random mid-tier games being advertised like they’re AAAA and moments of insanity both good and bad. But gamers are famously…
