I have it on in the background while I do some work but I doubt I will watch much more than an hour with how late it is for UK/Europe time zones.

Also be a bit annoying if you won an award and you they give it you in the pre show like it doesn't matter!

That's an amazing pairing, but a recipe for nausea! 😂

Bit spooky, bit chill, cute art style. Right up my street!

Harmonium: The Musical

Lovely-looking musical adventure game with a premium on accessibility

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe8ibRSmeDE

Boomer's avatar

I've never played a single Persona game. It feels like a risky move, as I'd have to go back and play them all 😅

Rich's avatar

Yeah, that's a cool-looking series I really can't afford to get into

Thrasher

New freaky-looking rhythm game from the creator of Thumper (looks freaking cool) - looks a bit like a spiritual sequel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knxfH1-Uh4s

Dave's avatar

Shocked Starfield didn't win the accessibility award! They put so much effort into that extensive feature list, not just the basics like Colour blind mode, O wait...

Boomer's avatar

Finally! We've been waiting longer for this than a new GTA!

Wings's avatar

C'mon Neil Newbon!!!! SO DESERVED!

Boomer's avatar

C'mon Cameron Monaghan for best performance!

Boomer's avatar

OK, fair play Neil ✌️(I should probably play BG3)

Exodus

"Pew pew pew" - Matthew McConaughey is his breezily charming self as he appears on stage to present a world premiere made in Austin, Texas by Archetype Entertainment and in which he appears. Slick-looking high-concept sci-fi game in which space explorers fight an alien race called the Celestials. Lots of time dilation stuff going on. Muse's 'Supermassive Black Hole' closes the trailer and that's very much the vibe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkbPhbyPWCk

Alright, alright, alright. I think this is the trailer I'm most excited about.

Assassin's Creed Nexus

OK, unless Fable drops tonight, I can't think of anything I'm more hyped for! 😲

Nicole's avatar

Awesome and only a few days away?!

Alex Sinclair's avatar

Amazing! I still haven't gotten around to Ragnarök, but now I have yet another reason to play

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II

No new hard info on this one - Hellblade II was announced ages ago and we got a 2024 release date at Summer Game Fest this year, but nice to see it reconfirmed, and there's a sick new trailer with some awesome Norse-influenced music by Heilung.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VYGOkMnGCE

No Rest for the Wicked

Action-RPG by Moon Studios (creators of Ori and the Blind Forest) published by Private Division. Big grimdark vibes in the trailer - dark fantasy world, lots of very freaky monster designs. More information at a showcase on March 1.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXWom_2Dots

Wings's avatar

Not totally sold on the trailer but I did LOVE Ori and the Blind Forest so could be swayed

Boomer's avatar

Did I see that right? New Golden Axe!? 😲

Rich's avatar

Big Sega showcase

New games confirmed in development in the following franchises:

  • Jet Set Radio

  • Shinobi

  • Golden Axe

  • Streets of Rage

  • Crazy Taxi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VHYLJR9pNg

Thomas's avatar

Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi look perfect! I'm hyped for Streets of Rage and Golden Axe as well, although I wonder how good the transition to 3D will be, especially when Streets of Rage 4 was so good and Golden Axe Beast Rider was so bad. I'm also curious if Crazy Taxi will have some kind of story mode or if it will be as arcadey as it was in the olden days, I can't help but wonder if the raw arcade gameplay is enough for people in 2023

Boomer's avatar

Picture this - Crazy Taxi reborn with Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012 influences!

DragonBall Sparking! Zero

Ok I'll be honest I've no idea what separates these games from one another. Here's what the website says:

DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO takes the legendary gameplay of the Budokai Tenkaichi series and raises it to whole new levels. DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO has a historic number of playable characters, each with signature abilities, transformations and techniques.

O D

Iiiiiit's Kojima time!

Remarkable trailer - hands down the most lifelike faces I've ever seen animated. We're scaling the other side of the uncanny valley with this one.

Kojima comes out on stage to say more - co-developed with Xbox and their cloud gaming tech. Says it's a game, but also a movie, and also "a new form of media".

Surprise Jordan Peele appearance! Some glowing praise for Kojima's work and says he's honoured to be collaborating with him on this, which is going to be "completely immersive, utterly terrifying".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1pnFI1r8N0

Wings's avatar

Was not ready for that! Jumped out of my skin. And now Jordan Peele?!

Boomer's avatar

I'd love to hear more about Jordan Peele's role in this. I loved Lovecraft Country!

Single-player action-adventure with what looks to be an emphasis on survival, for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox X/S. Set right after the original 1993 movie. You play as a scientist who's "been left behind on Isla Nublar" - trailer takes in some of the movie's iconic locations, such as the kitchen that Tim and Lex left in such a mess, before switching into first person.

Rich's avatar

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage

Light No Fire

New from Hello Games, introduced on stage by its studio head Sean Murray. "Something maybe more ambitious" than No Man's Sky. "Here we go," says Geoff. Quite. As with No Man's Sky, Sean says this is being made by a team of about a dozen.

It's another procedurally generated shared-world multiplayer game, but it's fantasy not sci-fi, and set on a single planet rather than a whole galaxy. It'll be bigger than Earth but the procedural generation is far, far more detailed than No Man's Sky's - Sean talks in particular about the scale and intricacy of the mountains. "The first real open world", says Sean, a whole planet without boundaries, which everyone can explore together.

I'm very excited about this game. I love No Man's Sky, and from the trailer this appears to include many of the elements that appeal to me. 😁

Rupert's avatar

I was incredibly lucky to be invited to Hello Games' offices a couple of weeks ago to see and discuss this trailer... and all I could think was "Philip is going to love this!" :)

Philip's avatar

OMG you are a lucky duck!

That must've been awesome to get a behind the scenes glimpse of what's going on there.

Do you have any clues or hints you can share with me?

Rupert's avatar

I know very little! And I definitely can't share anything I heard either... sorryyy!

Philip's avatar

Aww... That's a shame. I'd be fanboying if I was there, asking tons of questions lol.

How did you end up getting the opportunity to visit? Are they gonna collab with JA?

Rupert's avatar

We'd certainly love to collab with them...

I'm not totally sure why they invited me actually, haha! Probably because of my previous involvement in Eurogamer 🤷🏻‍♂️

Timothée Chalomet comes out to present Game of the Year. There's an orchestral medley of all the nominees' main scores - it's pretty awesome, though that transition from Mario into Resident Evil has a bit of a tire screech on it.

The nominees:

  • Baldur's Gate 3

  • Super Mario Bros Wonder

  • Resident Evil 4

  • Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

  • Alan Wake 2

  • Marvel's Spider-Man 2

And the winner is: Baldur's Gate 3! Larian studio head Swen Wincke rocks up to the stage in his breastplate, and delivers a touching acceptance speech. Some of the cast, including Astarion's voice actor Neil Newbon who won the award for best performance earlier on, are tearing up in the audience.

And with that, Geoff wraps the show. That's all, folks!

Soken won for FFXVI music ❤️

I think it's the award I'm most happy about, not because it's FF but because that man poured his heart and soul into his work even when he's been in hospital and deservers all the recognition.

Hands down one of the greatest composers of all times.
