The Monster Hunter: World Honest Game Trailer.

Dang. Now I want to play Monster Hunter: World:

I actually can’t, because it won’t be out on PC until the fall.  Which is weird. But when it does come out I’m probably there.  It looks totally sweet.

PS4 Watch: God of War Story trailer.

It looks pretty dang rocking. Alas, I don’t have a Playstation, and I’d probably get the latest version of the XBox first before getting yet another console. But if you do have a PS4 then God of War definitely looks like it’ll be worth your time.

Rumor: Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, HEAVILY CONTROLLED gameplay at E3.

Am I desperate enough for Cyberpunk 2077 news to help spread this rumor? Of course I am! PC Gamer:

The Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account sputtered to life last week with a single, solitary “beep”—the first (and so far, only) word to come out of it after four full years of silence. Now a rumor has surfaced on Polish site GRYOnline (via Google Translate) that a new trailer for the game will be shown at this year’s E3, and that it will in fact be playable—although only behind closed doors.

I think that it’s reasonable to believe that there will be a trailer. Whether there’s gonna be a demo game at E3 is another story. But I’ll say this: CD Projekt Red has shown a certain talent for keeping interest alive on this title. Then again, they certainly came through on the Witcher series.  Never underestimate the power of built-up goodwill.

The New Tomb Raider trailer.

Like Geeks Are Sexy, I must admit: this looks better than the last trailer.

It is also absolutely based off of the 2013 video game. I thought so last year, but it’s pretty obvious now. I don’t know if this means that it will suck, however: the plot of the video game was looking pretty cinematic when I got defeated by the quick time events. Although now I’m tempted to give the game another shot.

Anyway: this is coming out in March.

Hmm. Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Was it any good?

They’re remastering Assassin’s Creed: Rogue for the consoles, but it apparently got ported onto the PC a few years ago. I somehow missed it.  Black Flag was very good, and probably my favorite in the series; is this worth picking up?

CD Projekt Red knows how to push my buttons.

Here. Listen.

They know exactly what my reaction to that is going to be. I mean, I absolutely understand that we’re not going to hear a blessed word about CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 video game today, or this week, or even probably this month. But that doesn’t matter. All that matters is the beep. The beep that says Pay attention.

And so I am.

PS: Note that this is the fifth anniversary of the original trailer.

I’m having some conceptual problems with Assassin’s Creed: Origins.

I picked up the game with Christmas money — all praise to the Amazon Gift Card, which allows my relatives to no longer play that fun What the Hell does Moe actually like, anyway? game — and I’m having some trouble getting ‘into’ Assassin’s Creed: Origins. It’s not the gameplay or even the basic plot; I’m cool with both.  My problem here is that I’m not really checked out yet as to the larger point of it all. I know, yes, this is the start of the Assassins and everything. But right now I’m kind of just murder-hoboing, with no real justification for it.

Which is how Black Flag started, sure.  But I was a PIRATE in Black Flag. I had a pirate ship and a pirate crew and whenever I was bored I’d go take a prize or two. And then listen to the crew sing. So… not the same thing, really?

Steam has a terrifying Star Wars sale going on…

…terrifying because it’s so, so good.  The Force Unleashed stuff in particular is calling to me.  It says, just one game, Moe.  You’ve always wanted to play it.  What harm could it possibly do?

:pause:

This would be a lot easier to justify if I didn’t need to sleep.

PS: The X-Wing and TIE Fighter games were ZOMG good.  So, so good.  Good enough that I almost want to buy a joystick, or hook up the XBox attachment… oh, crap, I have one of those.

Sorry: been chasing the Secret World Legends Pinata all day.

You know how it is: you schedule your entire day around logging into Secret World Legends every hour to kill the Goddess of Death, and next thing you know, it’s 11 PM and you’re wondering where the time went.  Especially since there’s a new update to Conan Exiles today, too, which means more things to dress up your dolls clothe your thralls with and add to your dollhouse castle.  Soon I shall have a wall around my entire encampment, and then my archers will kill those mammoths for me, safe in my fortress of Skyrimcraft… (more…)

Secret World Legends’ Christmas Event starts Tuesday.

A two-weeker, if I remember correctly. New missions, maybe a new boss, new caches, and – this is the important one – unlike the Halloween event all of your characters can get the daily rewards.  Which means that your alternates might be able to get that riding moose, after all (I rather badly want a riding moose). If Halloween is any indication, we’re not going to see a five-man dungeon; they’re just going to convert the existing dungeons for solo play.  Which is a crying shame, because I remember the old dungeon being a tricky exercise that was a lot of fun to work out. But what can you do? Besides, I’m happy to have my game and my cabal and my Christmas event back…

Some folks did a combat overhaul of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The Witcher 3 Enhanced Edition mod looks pretty comprehensive.  Basically, they yanked out leveling and Geralt’s ability to be better at combat than you are.  Now you have to actually pay attention to where the sword goes and how far away your target is and a bunch of other stuff. It’s simultaneously fascinating…

…and something I refuse to load.  I’m in my late forties.  I appreciate that Geralt is better in combat than me.  He ought to be, after all.  But, of course, your mileage may vary.

Secret World Legends makes a big adjustment to play.

A very significant one, in fact.
