This game looks absolutely gorgeous! The Horizon games have so much content and seeing this makes it a definite pre-order purchase for me! 4 player co-op on cross platforms just adds to the depth and fun factor of the game.

I think having the Xbox/Win 10 crossover is Microsoft's way of promoting digital copies. Has anyone confirmed if the physical disc copies can be played on both platforms?

Agreed! I've almost 100% completed the game including the DLC. Still working on winning all 168 championships. It's definitely a grind!

Game with the most buzz generating for Xbox is We Happy Few. Set in an alternative post WWII England that lost the war the citizens of Welington Wells are taking a happy drug called "joy" and are taking it to forget their horrific past. People who don't take the pill are called "downers" and the citizens don't take too kindly to them.



This game is developed by Compulsion Games and definitely has a Bioshock feeling to it. Maybe because some of the employees are ex-Bioshock devs. Keeping an eye on this one as the release date nears.

Oh and the only thing Nintendo seems to be promoting like hell at E3 is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Yeah you can deffo waste time doing barn finds, racing rivals, and trying for those speed trap records. Then you find you've spent three hours but done nothing for the championships. I enjoy it much more than 'normal' Forza though.

was pretty impressed by the new Dishonoured trailer, although the graphics didn't look that much better than xbox 360...

Surprisingly, PC Gamer was impressed with the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer.

Still not touching it.

That's a must-purchase for me on PC. Forza is the only sim-leaning racing series I enjoy.

I can't think of a single console that impressed me more aesthetically. That design is beautiful.

I'm still catching up from a week out, so I haven't even had a chance to watch the trailer. At this point, I don't know if I care. It's definitely not a day-one purchase for me anymore.

...until I watch the trailer, get misty-eyed, and pre-order.

They're basically turning it into mildly hardcore-modded Skyrim-ized Zelda with a cross of Wind Waker and OoT graphics? Sure, I'll buy it.

Ticky thing: look at the low poly count on that cliff at the 1:00 mark. Holy crap, Nintendo.

The one game that has me crazy-excited is Insomniac's Spider-Man. I know it's only a trailer so far, but their track record is pretty great, and a good Spider-Man game is long overdue.

E3 sale on PSN right now, some heavily discounted games, like Tomb Raider for 5 bucks.

Currently trying to decide between Tomb Raider, The Order 1886, and the Resident Evil HD remaster.

Nintendo is pricing its mobile-only Pokemon Go at $34.99.

Is that the 2013 Tomb Raider? If you haven't got to it yet, it is still a good game.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Might have to pick up the slim XBox One, it'll be the cheapest 4K player on the market.

I don't know gow I feel about the Neo or Project Scorpio. Both MS ans Sony are saying they will mandate backwards compatibility but I'm almost positive SquareEnix (or whoever) will tell them they need the processing power of the new consoles and we'll effectively have started a new generation.

I knew that with 4k around the corner this generation was going to be underpowered, but hopefully this is a fluke and we aren't moving to a 3-year cycle from here on out... The sad part is I'm sure Nintendo was hoping to get out in front of them with a legitimately powerful console (for once) and unless they go back to the drawing board they'll be stuck with inferior specs AGAIN... Which means no third party support.

As much as I love Nintendo I wish they'd just do like Sega and publish on other consoles (though they could probably keep the portables and do okay there).

I don't think it will be hard for game developers to make games that work on both consoles. They will make sure to show the screenshots from the improved models everywhere that counts and then just tune down the effects and the textures on the lower-end model.

In general, I think this is where the console market needs to go. Regular updates with backwards compatibility. The PS3/360 generation was way too long.

Xbox One S unboxing and size comparison (it fits inside the XB1 fat shell)

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

I'm pretty much sold on the new Zelda, and will prolly pick up the NX for it (provided they dont mess it up).

I'm glad Last Guardian got a release date and I will probably pick up a Neo for it.

The XBox S is probably the best designed xbox to date IMO. Good on em getting a 4k BluRay drive and HDMI2.0a on there.

No Man's Sky was apparently delayed because of a trademark claim from British Sky Broadcasting, aka Rupert Murdoch's UK broadcaster.

Sky is apparently suing everyone and their grandmother at the moment, because they changed their named from British Sky Broadcasting to BSkyB to just Sky. They're claiming "confusion" with everyone using the word sky. Well, who's fault is that, then?

If you guys haven't seen this yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8fU2QG-lV0

Long story, made as short as possible:

Two incredibly prominent YouTubers were busted advertising a gambling CS:GO site called CSGOLotto without disclosing that they were, in fact, owners of the site. Federal charges are likely, and civil suits are about to unload on them.

I'd recommend watching the entire H3H3 video I posted to show how scummy their actions truly were. After accidentally displaying his user names for the illegal site(s) during a live stream, TmarTn immediately went into damage control, acting like he had already disclosed that he was the owner. Unfortunately, footage still exists proving otherwise, including one in which he pretends to stumble across the site, recommends it, and says, "These guys are talking to me, and might even sponsor the channel!"

...despite his name being on the company's charter.

Scummy, scummy, scummy.

Total Biscuit's response was especially furious.

Oh, I forgot, it's okay to playfully jab at the religious, but certain other groups that take themselves too seriously are off limits.
