Missed the excitement of GamesBeat Summit? Do not worry! Tune in now to see all live and virtual sessions This.
I just got back from GamesBeat Summit a few days ago, and Meta decided to not only give me a new headset — Quest 3 — but also some gameplay trailers. I’m not usually one to get too hyped about VR games, but the medium they showed us at Show Meta . game not too shabby. Oddly enough, the game I’m most excited about is the 7th Visitor remake, if only because it’s one of the last games I anticipate getting a VR remake.
Among the other games on the list, the one that caught my attention was Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice. Maybe I’m just hankering for a new Vampire game (no, not a vampire game; sorry, Redfall), but I thought it might actually be fun. if (and this is a big question if) developers can understand the intensity and attitude I have associated with the franchise. Another game that caught my attention was, oddly enough, UNDERDOGS. I absolutely love a fun mech game, and that game looks like it might have a bit of juice.
Changing the subject a bit, Happy Pride Month everyone! Now is the time for game publishers to roll out everything in rainbow colors. Just to make people aware, Queuing game pack from itch.io is now available and Dontnod’s Tell Me Why is free on Steam. Zynga is also cooperation with the project It Gets Better on several Pride Month and Employee Spotlight events.
Personally, I’ll be diving into both Diablo IV (in early access) and Street Fighter VI. Having both of those games available at the same time makes for an unusual weekend—but entertaining, if nothing else. I’ll also check out System Shock Remake at some point, because I need to see if Shodan’s horror show is still around after all this time. Hmm, an evil AI story – that doesn’t seem like an interesting topic right now, does it?
