Thought maybe we needed a general thread for new games? Seems like E3 was jampacked with awesome shit this year for the Xbox One. Here is my list of standouts that look awesome:

Fallout 4
Halo 5
Gears of War 4
Star Wars Battlefront

Those all look great.

Halo 5 https://youtu.be/QwjwJ9Z_XYs?t=107

Also backwards compatibility for 360 games.

I'm kinda excited about Xbox One to Win 10 streaming. If that works, I'll be sooooo happy. I'll be able to sit in the living room and play Fallout 4 or Destiny while the wife watches So You Think You Can Bachelor IV or whatever.

Also, the new South Park: Fractured but Whole looks like it will be great. Stick of Truth was hilarious.

How about this?! http://www.destructoid.com/did-you-b...d-294113.phtml

We'll be getting Shenmue 3 before Half-Life 3. I guess that's not a real surprise. I don't think HL3 is ever coming. Valve seems to have moved on.

I tend to gravitate toward FPS for the multiplayer experience and RPG for a single player experience. Right now, I'm hooked on Destiny which is both types in one.

Speaking of Destiny, the next game "The Taken King" comes out in September. Supposed to be as big an update as the original Destiny. A new subclass for Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters too.

So is this like a sequel or an expansion? New story or related? Not that I have any idea what the story was about even after playing hundreds of hours of that game. I just know that I have sent Sepiks Prime's soul screaming back to hell a lot of times.

It's a really big expansion. New locations (Saturn), 10 or so more strikes, and a new raid.

Oryx is pissed off that his son Crota (from Dark Below) was killed and is raising an army of corrupted enemies to fight you.



The real problem this game has is that the story is contained in the grimoire cards and only referenced in passing as dialogue during the missions. Since you're so busy shooting things, you can easily miss the plot.

For example, the Grimoire card for the main bad guy in House of Wolves, Skolas, explains how Xur freed Skolas on behalf of the Nine for some unexplained reason. This would have made a great opening cinematic, but no, Bungie just threw in one line during the first mission where Petra wonders how Skolas escaped.

It's as if the entire plot of Halo was told only by the hidden terminals, except if when you found the terminal it just gave you a web address to where the terminal text could be found.

Whoe... 10 strikes? That is cool.

And yea, Bungie really fucked up the storytelling mechanism in this game. I don't particularly want to go to a website to get the story for the game I am playing. If you make the story compelling IN THE GAME... then it is likely that I will go to the website to learn more of the geeky details. But you cant have that be the only story delivery mechanism. I think bungie missed the opportunity to make this really one of the best games of all time... the gameplay is extremely awesome and compelling. if it had a story that matched it, it would have been one of the best ever.

Agreed.

I'd add that [click here to see what I'd add]

Sorry, that's buggy. There will be a 100GB update soon.

I would like to play more Destiny though, that's a lot of stuff.

So yeah, it's there and going to be on xbox. I'm still trying to figure out how this game is going to be a big sell to consoles. The immediacy of the game just isn't there unless they really tweak the combat mode.

Personally, I'm in a totally different part of the sandbox exploring distant systems. The game is sweet with flightsticks. Nice on my PC but how will that appeal to the couch crowd with a game controller?
