I hear Bluepoint is working on it as well, so my interest has shot right up (they did the original PS3 one as well).

I think I am most excited about the new Forza game, although I am looking forward to the new South Park game too.

Xbox B/W is a good move from Microsoft, especially if all the old Sega stuff works!

Spider Man looked cool enough, almost like a Spidy version of the Arkham games, but I hope the Quick Time events don't plague it too much. That playthrough seemed to have too many of them already,.

Resident Evil 4 still influencing modern games. What a game!

well that sony conference was personally disappointing, spiderman being the only exciting looking game there.. the others while i'm sure are fine as games just seem very last of us inspired, dreary and gloomy in nature. i'm sure some people love this sort of thing but I am afraid for the most part it's not me, so once again sony fail to win me over.

microsoft look a little more interesting but I am struggling a little to understand who the xboxonex is aimed at? all these exclusive games are coming to windows 10? so for someone like me I am not sure I really need one... I want a reason to buy one, I really do! but so far ms are only giving me backwards compatibility, it's possible I might just pick up a 360 instead, will see how the xboxone progresses.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer:

It looks... different... I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing yet, but Ancel has every right to express his artistic vision. Might be a bit of a surprise for those waiting for the game more than 15 years though.

Almost all action games look the same

As with previous years, to much FMV
At least Fifa no longer looks like a PS2 game...............

Anyone else think Microsoft really need a killer IP? Seems to me Gears and Halo especially have run their course. Actually Halo was done by Reach but whatever.

Evil Within 2.
The first one was far from perfect. Hopefully the sequel will be more polished.

Skull and Bones looks brilliant taking one of the best bits of Black Flag the sea battles and having mythological monsters such as the Kraken to fight. Glad they're having a female pirate as the playable character. Thought it may have been as sequal to Legend of Black Kat. Not liking Ubisofts insistentson show casing the multiplayer as rather they concentrate on making the 1 player game as good as possible

Blackwake had the pirate battles theme for a few years now, it's just that it's still an "early access" title.

Watching Sea of Thieves and Skull & Bones going at each other's throats is interesting, I guess "pirate simulators" could become the new hype thing in the main-stream. Which will be better depends on preference, as one aims for a more stylized look and the other is going for a more realistic one. Both have very nice ocean rendering tech though.
