Ubi Soft Forward

First up- off to London for Watch Dogs Legion. It looks like they dialed up the Cyberpunk a lot since the last time we saw it. We'll see how much appetite for "smash the state" is around by the time this launches on October 29.  But the "recruit anyone you see in London" might be enough to save it. Maybe.

Brawlhalla- iOS and Android launch Aug 6

More mobile stuff. Might and Magic Era of Chaos. A Fortnite-y looking Tom Clancy game "Elite Squad" which seems to have Sam Fisher in it.

Rainbow 6 Siege. Still here.

Hyper Scape- it's a team shooter/Battle Royale with Twitch viewers able to interfere with the game. Yeah, I can't see that coming back to bite folks in the end. Open Beta starts now.

Phil from Xbox arrives.

AC: Valhalla. It's Assassin's Creed, but with Vikings. "Dual wield any two weapons, even shields!" Er, why?  "Lead armies into battle!" Um, assassin? Lone warrior? Whatever. November .

And there's another one of these "soon" but first a mystery title! It's very red. Far Cry 6. It's in Central America, if the leaked images are correct. Feb 18, 2021

So it looks like we're getting a tv+NES Lego set.

Wow. I've never paid over $100 for a Lego set, but I think I'm gonna make an exception.

It would be my third time paying over $100 for a set (First being 1989 Batmobile, second being the Upside Down from Stranger Things).

This...this is very tempting.

10 minutes long, previously announced games developed by partners.

I don't have high hopes.

I'm hoping we're getting a bunch of smaller Directs this time around.  I'm curious if we're going to see more of Pokemon Snap 2 in this stream.

The one that grabbed my attention was the Cadence of Hyrule expansions.

https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/07/cadence_of_hyrule_gets_3_dlc_packs_season_pass_and_a_physical_edition

And a physical edition containing all three expansions. Now the question is, am I patient enough to not have to double dip on expansions when I KNOW I'm getting the physical edition just to have...

Unless there's some compelling reviews of Shin Megami Tensei, probably nothing for me.
