Bloodlines was one of my favourite games ever, looking forward to that.
Here's hoping Part 2 has Crusader Kings 3!
Still disappointed that Alyx is a VR game but I guess I can watch some play through videos to see the story
Haven't put in anywhere near enough time into CK2 it feels like but also looking forward to this!
Also for me Desperados 3 for sure. Don't tend to pay attention to upcoming games etc, but that is one I'm trying to keep a rough eye on.
Yakuza 7, Total War Troy, Baldur's Gate 3, Commandos 2 Remaster, Hollow Knight Silksong, Port Royale 4, Streets of Rage 4, Resident Evil 3, Xenonauts 2, Serious Sam 4, Psychonauts 2, plus some stuff that has been mentioned already...
Yep, looking to be another good (and expensive) year.
Cyberpunk 2077 is the only game on my 2020 list so far. Not that i'll probably play it in 2020
I'm getting impatient for Cyberpunk 2077. Looking forward to Doom Eternal. Cautiously hopeful about Bloodlines 2.
Ever since that 45 minutes live gameplay demo I watched at Dreamhack Winter a bit over a month ago, I can't wait for the game.
Doom is Doom is an insta-buy is Doom.
Baldur's Gate 3, if only for the Lovecraft angle, is on my list as well.
Other than that I'm looking forward to the updates and full release of Risk of Rain 2 and the new DLC for Dead Cells.
Best take some patience pills dude, sounds like it's been pushed back from April to September.
Yup, saw that this evening.
Unamused is how I would describe myself.
Yeah, disappointing but I guess part of me is pleased in that they want to release it when it's ready to be released.
Don't want to do a Bethesda.
I don't think anyone's going to play it in 2020, I'm beginning to think it's all just a wonderful dream. Or they've found a way to Ghost Hack the Polish government into giving them infinite funding.
I'll be fine as long as Doom is awesome and metal as ****.
Maybe later in the year they'll release a "non-VR" Version, just to generate some sales.
I think pre-orders will carry them quite far. The hype surrounding this game is pretty unreal.
Fingers crossed but I think the whole point is kickstart VR with a secondary objective of seeing if anyone still cares about Half Life. Maybe if it's successful it might pave the way for that other game...
With how much of the game is based around direct interaction, a 'non VR' version would effectively be an entire new game.
That's what I hoped for with Quake Champions... a new Quake singleplayer game. *sigh*
The question I always ask myself about anything related to Half-Life 3: could it actually not get destroyed by fans because they expected more or something else? Could it really hold up to all the hype that'd surround it?
Witcher 3 has also sold about one bazillion copies every year it has been out.
All affordable VR Headsets seem to be based on using a phone as a Display.
Is this any good? Wouldn't you prefer a dedicated VR set?
Can anyone recomment an entry-level, non-phone based VR set?
No. GearVR was at best passable in it's day, but is no longer supported by new phones anyway so that's moot. Everything else (i.e. Google cardboard or Daydream) was and remains basically crap.
Cheap (£140): Oculus Go. No head motion tracking so unless you're only going to use it for watching videos or other flat content while stationary (seated/lying down, not standing) it's not a fantastic choice.
Decent (£400): Oculus Quest. The only standalone HMD that's worth considering at the moment. Good luck finding it in stock though.
To be honest I'd recommend squireling away cash for a Quest over getting a Go at this point.
