Last night, the artists, players, and commentators of our favorite thing in the world all got together to give each other some pats on the back. That’s right, it was the 2019 Game Awards! But what if you missed it? What if you didn’t get to see all the cool reveals? Jill in accounting is going to snark on you so bad for being out of the loop!
Well, you’re in luck! We gathered together all the trailers that we think really stood out so you can watch them and let Jill know that you’re cooler than a cucumber! Check it out!
Bravely Default II
The third game in the Bravely Default series, Bravely Default II will be coming to the Nintendo Switch next year!
Bravely Default started as a sequel to Final Fantasy 4: Heroes of Light, but took on a mind of its own and became its own game. The JRPG was released on the 3DS in 2012, and was followed by Bravely Second: End Layer in 2016. We know fans of the series can’t wait to get back to Luxendarc!
We don’t know much about Weird West. The description of the game from developer Devolver Digital says “Survive and unveil the mysteries of the Weird West through the intertwined destinies of its unusual heroes in an immersive sim from the co-creators of Dishonored and Prey.” So, we know there are mysteries.
Checking out the trailer, it looks like the game has cowboys, weird mutant people, an evil cult, werewolves, and a family that hates having right arms. It also has our attention. This Action RPG looks very cool
Created by Brendon Greene, the man behind PUBG, Prologue is… well… we’re pretty sure it’s a game. Beyond that, we got nothing.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Movie nerds hate remakes. Video game nerds love remakes. It kooks me out!
And with that love of remakes comes a new version of Final Fantasy VII. We all knew it was on the way, but last night we got a sweet new look at it! And since we all know the Final Fantasy series, I’m not going to waste time explaining it all.
Amplitude Studios and Sega have decided to jump into Sid Meier’s space and make a Civilization style game. And as a fan of the Civilization series, I have to say, this looks good!
Humankind lets players choose a civilization and lead it across the six major eras of human civilization. And you can have blue hair!
You play a shark. A shark looking to get revenge on humanity. A shark that appears to get superpowers. Who wants to eat every human that walks the Earth.
How can you not want to play this game?
No More Heroes 3
Set a decade after the first No More Heroes, Travis returns to Santa Destroy only to find an artificial metropolis floating in the sea and a UFO floating over the city. You all know what that means, right? Time for some hacking and slashing!
Here it is, the first look at a game for the PlayStation 5. This is a big moment. Now, it’s all cutscene, so we don’t get a sense of what gameplay will look like on the PS5, but come on, we all know the console will be fantastic, right? And Godfall, made by Gearbox, looks pretty darn good!
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II
Not to be outdone, Ninja Theory showed up and gave us our first look for an Xbox Series X game (more on that new Xbox in a second!).
And like Godfall, it looks amazing! Mixing in some live-action footage may seem a bit sneaky, don’t forget that the first Hellblade worked that way as well, so it’s just the style of the game.
Xbox Series X
Here it is…
Our first look at one of the next-gen consoles. The Xbox Series X is, in my opinion, very cool looking. It appears to be pretty small, and the design is unobtrusive, which I dig. Something about the top of the Series X gives me the feeling that the console will also work like an Amazon Echo or Google Home. Get ready to ask Cortana some questions!
Speaking GameSpot, Phil Spencer explained that the Series X will have about four times more CPU performance power than the Xbox One and twice as much GPU power as the Xbox One X. AMD is handling the CPU/GPU for the Series X. And by using solid-state drives, Microsoft’s plan is to “virtually eliminate load times” for the new console (which would be great because while I love The Outer Worlds, the loading times are killing me!).
There’s no price point for the Series X just yet, but we’re betting it’ll cost a pretty penny, so everyone start saving up now!
