Are we finally going to get details on this supposed "rebooted" Forza Motorsport? We've been hearing how it's going to change everything but the last two reveals have only been "look how pretty it is"

What is so great that it needed 5 years of development with a new engine to make possible?

I really want to see this game and just someone playing it on an actual Series X

It's interesting but it's not something that gets me excited to play it. Also, the "48 times more powerful" just sounds silly. Those aren't details. The dynamic weather changes are cool I guess but like, it was also cool a decade ago as well in other games.

I guess I want the multiplayer details. How many players? Are there going to be lobbies (since T10 is back-and-forth on this)? Tournament mode? Are there going to be systems in place to stop assists abusers? It's frustrating that FM MP peaked in FM2. I guess I'm still salty.

I still feel that the first game is better overall, but its like comparing a 10/10 with a 9.5/10. So many great moments. I do hope they remake the first game with the controls and graphics of the sequel.

I'd love that since I never played the first one. Half way through 2 I started regretting not playing the first one as there seemed to be backstory that I was not aware of. I'm still planning on going back and playing the first one, but yeah a remake would be ideal.

I've literally just said upcoming retail release.....

Skybound is apparently publishing the game what seems strange.

I know you did, but from what I saw it wasn't confirmed. Just a rumor/supposed "Leak". Which I don't take much stock in until there is an official announcement.

The first is so damn good. 2 is made much better if you played the first game. I would also like to see the VR title made into non VR at some point so more people can try it out.

An Amazon listing I wouldn't really call a rumor? And skybound publisher off all things?

Seems pretty precise imo, I would guess it's just a listing that has gone up early.

I'll buy it day one regardless, game massively exceeded my expectations on game pass and was probably my fave game last year :)

Fool me once, Shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I dont' want to get my hopes up only to have them dashed.

But yes, it was such an amazing game. More people need to play it.

Hellblade, fable, avowed, do that MS an your golden.

Realistically I’m only expecting one of these an more info on redfall an forza. Doubt we’d even see starfield with how boojie Todd is lol.
 
I just want to see a few more details on Starfield...anything beyond starfield not on my radar atm. Stick that landing then lets see more.

Guys, 20 degrees is the temperature of the Xbox fridge of course.

A bit on the warm side for general fridge goods, but its only slightly hotter than serving temperature for barley wines, imperial stouts and Belgian strong ales so it suits me.
 
The only platform holder who is participating this year. Disappointed to see it won’t be much of a show this year. Maybe 2023 will be better!

20 degree freedom units
I got the kitchen fridge set at 33 for fridge and 0 for freezer. 20 in the fridge would put ice in the milk.

I can see a Hellblade 2 update and some new gameplay of Starfield. Maybe a bit of Avowed. But does MS have ANY big game coming out this year?
Deathloop maybe? Besides that they have Pentiment, full release of Grounded and As Dusk Falls. And the Hot Wheels expansion for Forza Horizon 5, which looks awesome.

In a statement to press, Microsoft said, “We’re excited to confirm that Xbox will be back on the show floor at Gamescom 2022 in Cologne, Germany. Fans in Europe and around the world can expect updates on some announced games coming to Xbox in the next 12 months.”

I hope for their sake it’s a better showing than their last conference.

Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?
I imagine there'll be more game play for games we already saw at their Keigh-3 show.

Basically, the next time we are possibly getting new (as in not shown at all during Keigh-3) MS first party game trailer/news will be TGA.

It won't be better than their main show of the year for sure. That show was terrible because they decided to go for a "this is what you'll get for the next 12 months" approach.

They spoke a lot about the new physics engine, ray tracing, career etc, in the reveal at E3.

In what world was it good? An hour and a half worth of games and only about 5 or 6 of them looked worthwhile.

It was terrible because they showed games coming in the next 12 months instead of far-out CG trailers ?

ooookey.


It’s even weirder when the main concern before the show was that it would be about CG trailers for games years away. Can’t please everyone I guess.

Alone for finally seeing Starfield it was good. Then there was High Life, Plague Tale and the long awaited Silksong (hope soon). Last Case of Benedict Fox and As Dusk Falls both look like something I'll enjoy. Wo Long, Diablo IV, Scorn and the Hot Wheels Expansion are also happening. A lot of people seem to be excited about Persona, but I usually can't get in the JRPG type of storytelling. So in my book a lot of good stuff was shown.
And if you're the type of person that only goes to the movies if an iteration of Fast and Furious is shown they even have a game with Vin Diesel. How can one not be entertained?
