Okay, didn’t know if I should make a new thread but since this exists, I won’t. I know the BIG console showcases are going to get their own threads…but there was a total of THREE events that took place today that highlighted a ton of games, many of them looking really cool! Going to post some trailers to some that I thought were particularly neat:
Extremely good superhero vibes. Feels like it was plucked right out of an indie comic. Putting this one instantly on the radar.
So this gameplay footage was released at the IGN Summer of Gaming show. This looks like something that should have already been on my radar but that Trailer they showed at Future got me amped up. Looks like the speed of Doom…but you’re a ninja aka extremely cool stuff.
This game has more or less looked bland as white bread every time I’ve seen it but this trailer added JUST enough. Not saying this now looks like my next GOTY but the Looter Shasher might scratch an itch I didn’t know I needed to be scratched. Ending the trailer on a mini-boss though is super lame. I would get it if it was a true boss. This thing had a large hammer, you can show the people how you take that down.
Bullet Storm + Quake + Demonic Computer
Feeling extremely bad for this dev as the trailer was completely missing from the publisher’s string of five full trailers in a row. Only knew because it was the only game that showed up in New Blood’s quick montage without being shown. Game’s pitch seems to be “Thief with guns” or something along those lines. The trailer gives proper spooky vibes. A trailer is out so I might try it.
Also, New Blood seems to be a real interesting publisher. All the games shared a similar FPS aesthetic while having a different hook. Not sure if there is so potential negatives from the games looking so similar, but who am I to say.
