Always need a good catch-all thread for any gaming or tech news, so feel free to post anything you hear, or links to any good articles! I follow a ton of game news sites on Twitter like Kotaku, so I'll be posting in here often.

 

Digital-Game-Only Xbox One S console expected to launch soon, maybe even ahead of E3.

 

As I'm rarely buying physical games anymore, and love my Xbox Game Pass, I dig this. Wonder if the new Xbox 'Scarlett' consoles (hopefully) announced at E3 will follow suit...

Turns out the big Google announcement is Google Stadia. Streaming games that will be available on Chrome or any other existing console. More news soon, but talk about a crazy announcement!

 

Another article with a better description!

This has me excited! The style, humour, and soundtracks make the Borderlands series some of the best games around. Can't wait for the next one.

I heard that the gamers’ attention is shifting to streaming games and that it will be a new trend. But I also read that current iGaming solutions are focused on such technologies as blockchain and cryptocurrency, VR and AR, integrated platforms and similar staff, http://www.sitepronews.com/2019/02/11/the-breakthrough-technologies-of-2018-that-shook-the-igaming-i.... I think it’s natural and logical that gaming and similar industries keep up with the newest technologies. I enjoy playing different games from Fortnite to online slots and in my opinion, both of them provide the best UX.

Title Update 3 is live for The Division 2 and they've made a slew of great changes to gear and enemy damage. The 8 player raid drops tomorrow and I can't wait to try to get through it!

I guess it's a good move to compete against Google Stadia.

New FromSoftware game "Elden Ring" leaked!

 

Alright, I'll admit...a dev making an RPG, assisted by the creator of the Dark Souls series, with heavy input from George R.R. Martin has me very intrigued.

Whoa, how awesome is it that Xbox got Keanu Reeves to announce the release date for Cyberpunk 2077? He's a character in the game, too? Nice.

 

April 16, 2020. Gonna preorder this asap.

Survival Horror games can be hit or miss, and only a handful have made it in to my realm of 'play more than once through' but I can't lie...the new Blair Witch game looks sick!

I tried playing Friday the 13th on Xbox (was free so...) and nope, never playing it again.

Has anyone caught wind of the Microsoft Flight Simulator that's dropping in 2020? This looks insane. They've basically recreated the entire planet with help from global satellite data, Bing, and the Azure Cloud, so you can take off from any airport and fly over any location you can think of. How weird will it be to fly over Disneyland or your childhood home...exactly where it should be? 

 

How realistic and accurate is it while you're flying over? While you're playing, the servers are crunching at two petabytes per second to recreate the environment. That's two million gigabytes. Trees are where they should be. I mean, come on...

 

Just skim through this video...  Seriously hoping it's playable with VR goggles.

Oh man, I'm pumped. 2K games has started up a new studio and officially announced their main project is a new BioShock game! 

 

The BioShock series is easily in my top 3 game franchises of all time and I'm cautiously optimistic about this!

Bah!  Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until September for 'further polish'. I've been waiting for this game for years, so hope the wait is worth it!

I don't mind the delay if it means we get a better quality game. Too many game studios rush games out before they're even finished and they have too many issues. I miss the old days where you could buy a complete game and not have any day one patches or updates.

For sure! What was Hideo's quote?   A delayed game is eventually great...a rushed game is awful forever.
