The lush loveliness above is Watch_Dogs 2, sequel to a game that "entirely underwhelmed" MrkDhn and featured a protagonist with "the personality of a potato" according to Jaime Rodriguez. Personally, I can't wait to gauge how badly its visuals have been downgraded come release in November.
Injustice 2's existence was confirmed, but sadly ImmaturityRules' wish wasn't granted - no starring role for Aquaman - the heathens didn't even put him in the trailer! That said, there was no sign of Lex Poothor, so it isn't all bad.
When it was leaked that Bethesda would unveil a remaster at their E3 press conference, everyone pretty much knew it was going to be Skyrim. That didn't stop some wishing for earlier games in the Elder Scrolls series instead; Metalrodent wanted "a good game" like Morrowind or Oblivion (burn!), whilst ImmaturityRules laments the fact Skyrim on his PC likely already runs better than a console remaster would.
On the other hand, MrkDhn is happy to revisit the game just for the addition of mods, as is Max, provided the price is right. Unfortunately, it looks to be wrong.
E3 aims to "inspire new worlds" with a preview of gaming's future, which prompted the following wit from Mr. Rodriguez.
Bethesda better break out the Sudocrem for these burns!
XCOM 2's console reveal was met with a lot of love: Plas, crippyd, Max, SkinnerChinner and Confused Johnny are all excited. Perhaps more interesting than the reveal itself was Johnny's choice of soldier names in the original. Following a 'favourite things' method of selection, his campaigns featured rugby players, wrestlers and... Thomas the Tank Engine characters? He can backtrack and blame it on his son all he wants, but we all know the truth.
Yet another game announcement garnered discussion as Heavyarms_Kai shared news of the Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster. Fond memories make it a must for Johnbhoy, but Plas isn't happy that there's been no mention of an Xbox One release so far.
"Well when about five people in total will pick it up on the XB1 it's not surprising really."
Plas' opinion doesn't matter and I can confirm, as a primary Xbox One user, that I wouldn't touch Final Fantasy with a barge pole - Kai might be on to something here...
Wednesday's Overwatch recording wasn't without its technical issues, but James managed to amass enough footage to work with. Those who left early, I regret to inform you that the video evidence of us steamrolling the opposition has been lost. Whilst not good for the ego, people do at least seem to enjoy watching people fail; take Plas as an example.
You might not hear it in the upcoming let's play, so I'll prescribe a dose of Overwatch's epic Victory Theme in this week's jukebox entry.
It sounds slightly off without the rat-a-tat of a Bastion Play of the Game over the top, doesn't it?
Before signing off, I'll take a moment to congratulate Metalrodent on his World of Tanks team giving the world champions a run for their money. They did take a 3-2 loss, but it was an admirable effort none the less.
