I skipped the PS4, but after all the games I missed out on, I may just have to side with Sony as my Nintendo-supplement this gen.

What's backwards comparability looking like? Will I get to play all the games I missed last gen?


Full backwards compat for X-Box.
PS5- they are testing the compatibility with PS4 games.

PC Gaming Show-

With no E3, stuff's coming out at random, show wise. Today's the PC show. Late start due to folks not listening when I say "I have to leave. Now."
Before show stuff-
*First up- Baldur's Gate 3-Early Access in August
*Frostpunk boardgame
*Liberated- Superhero game  set in a comic book

*First up- Valheim- a survival game with Vikings doing Viking stuff

*Persona 4 Golden! You never saw it coming! Out right now on Steam.
*In Sound Mind- psychological horror
*Airborne Kingdom- like it sounds
*Ultrakill! More metal than Doom!
*Gloomwood- it's like Thief.
*Humankind- the civ-type game from the Endless Space studio. More like History of the World compared to Civ, for boardgame folks.
*Icarus- survival on an alien world. Looks like Day Z crossed with Minecraft. Drop to a world. If you can't make it back to your ship in time- game over. Your character is gone.
*Evil Genius 2- Base builder strategy game where you're a bond-type bad guy out to control the world.
*Godfall- from Gearbox. Melee based game where you're fighting bad guys
*Prodeus- FPS from Humble
*Fae Tactics- looks very Final Fantasy Tactics-y
*Carto- it's
*Project Wingman
*Kane appears to promote the Command and Conquer remaster
*Blankos-It's a third person game where you're kinda a Pop figure running around doing stuff
*Everspace 2
*Total War: Troy- Free on the Epic Store day 1. Day 2? Pay up
*Remnant from the Ashes Subject 2923- It's an expansion for the game
*Mafia trilogy remaster
*Rogue Lords- Tactical Roguelike set in Hell
*Unexplored 2- another roguelike
*Among Trees- a survival game
*Potionomics- You run a potion store.
*Mortal Shells-Possess the husks of ancient warriors.
*From Valiant, yes the comic people, a remaster of Shadowman... which doesn't really look better than the original. Yikes
*Blightbound
*Rapidfire- Shadows of Doubt! Cyberpunk detectives! The Forgotten City!- Explore  a time lost Roman city! Paradise Killer! First person open world murder mystery! With Lady Love Dies. (rolls eyes) Haven! Two lovers escape to a lost planet! Cartel Tycoon! Run a drug empire!  Trash Sailors! Explore a flooding world full of junk! Cris Tales! Woo-ooo! A love letter to old school RPGs. Nov 17. Alaloth! From Chris Avellone! (Fallout, Baldur's Gate, Planescape)  It's an RPG!
*Weird West! Somehow still not sued for the title and theme! Action RPG spookinesss in the Wild West! One main character in each chapter and after each chapter, you can go back and recruit the old character
*Story of Seasons- Friends of Mineral Town. It's Harvest Moon, but they can't call it that.
*Gasp! An MMORPG! New World, from Amazon- Beta starts July 23
*Twin Mirror, from the Life is Strange folks. Epic release
*Metal Hell Singer- a rhythm FPS- blast demons in time! Like a FPS Crypt of the Necrodancer. Shoot to the beat. I don't recognize any of the bands mentioned
*Felicia Day in The Amulet of Chaos- a tactical RPG. And I heard 3-ish Critical Role folks in there
*Red Sails- sail across a desert rescuing people
*Surgeon Simulator 2- It looks "whackier" than the first.
*Last Campfire- you're a lost ember, trying to return home
*New stuff for Escape from Tarkov

Ooh! New Evil Genius. Loved the first one. It was essentially Dungeon Keeper with a spy coat of paint.

I'd enjoy the IGN stream more if it weren't for the snobbish whininess of the chat.

Okay, apparently Games Radar is also doing a show. 40 things in 60 minutes. Yikes. A lot of this will be very short.

Nolan North and Emily Rose are hosting.
*First up, you're a multi ethnic rock band launching a rebellion in America- Dustborn. Action adventure. It's made in Norway, so it'll be about as accurate as American stuff about Norway is.
*Ghost Runner
*Call of the Seas
*Sherlock Holmes: Chapter 1- From the Sherlock Devil's Daughter folks. Features a young Holmes. Open-worldish
*Signey? It's a bullet hell retro= shootem up. Like Xevious or R-Type. Oh, Cygni.
*Up next Morbid The Seven Acolytes. Looks like Diablo mixed with contra
*Hot Shot Racing- Daytona/Outrun-ish racing game
*Cris Tales. Again Woo-ooo. Everyday they're out there making them
*Liberated- again, Cyrberpunkish game set in a comic book.



*Neon Abyss- from the Over Cooked/Escapist folks. Shovel Knight/Bloodstained but with many, many guns. July 14
*Skater XL- coming out of early access where it's been since 2018. It's like Tony Hawk
*GTTOD (Get to the Orange Door) An FPS whose goal is right there
*You're in a coma! Explore your memories and fight for your life! Waking. June 18
*A Sequel to Bombing Crew, but this time you're in a space ship, not a bomber. Space Crew. September
*Maid of Sker-a spooky first person survival horror game, set in Wales. All the bad guys are blind, so you have to be quiet. Or very, very loud, like you're fighting R.O.T.O.R.
*Montage! Smite! (really?) Fall Guys. Carrion. Unbound. Anno Mutationeh. DogGone. The Almost Gone. Inkulinati. Alaloth. Wave Break. Cloud Punk. Windjammers. (It has more volleyball than Spikers) Hammerting. Stage Hands. Archeage. Which has been out for several years. The Hell, folks?
*The Remnant expansion. You fight a lot of furries.
*The Captain is Dead- Real time, existing Boardgame now in digital form.
*Main Assembly- you build vehicles

*Wasteland 3
*Remothered Broken Porcelein- It's a scary game
*Werewolf- Heart of the Forest- from White Wolf
*Rogue Company- it's from High Rez. It's a team shooter
*Outriders
*disintegration- June 16
*Paradise Lost- It's 1960 and WW2 is still going on. You're wandering around looking for stuff
*Operation Tango- co-op game where one player hacks and the other is onsite
*Kena Bridge of Spirits- Coming to the Sonys and the Epics. Young girl goes adventuring in a story adventure game and you collect creatures and save spirits

Last one-
*Serial Cleaners - Clean up the evidence at crime scenes, this time in the 1990s.

Yeah, that wasn't the one to close on, folks.

Anyway, Xbox and Ubi will be doing shows in July. Avengers at sometime soon.

EA Play for June 20

I think this supposed to be their E3 show. I dunno.

Before the show, Nintendo announced Pokemon Snap is coming back for the Switch.

*Apex Legends- Lost Treasures event for the game
*The Sims 4 - coming to Steam
*Command and Conquer
*Switch games- Burnout Paradise. Out tomorrow.  Crossplay for most titles. 7 more games coming to switch
*"Nothing comes into our game without out approval" (cough) Coming from the lords of lockbox, yeah, sure.
*It Takes Two- Co Op platformer where you're controlling a family trying to divorce.
*Lost in Random- adventure game where a little girl and a die go on a Tim Burton-ish adventure. And the singular of dice is "die" Swedish people
*Multiplayer stuff. Rocket Arena. You only shoot rockets in this. July 14. Crossplay on all platforms
*Star Wars Squadrons- October 2
*Madden 2021
*New stuff- Criterion is working on something. Same for Bioware, probably Dragon's Age. Dice. Movie. You're just listing the studios, aren't you?
Last game-
*It's Skate! Well, that's unexpected, I guess.

Eh. Not much actual news. Some gameplay from Squadrons.
