Enjoy the mystery my friends, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Xbox E3 Plans, For Now. – Gamefans8

This week we heard a bit from Phil Spencer of and Microsoft plans for E3. He pointed out things do change of course, but for now he said we should be seeing some support for Japanese developers. This would be a nice thing to see as a JRPG fan as they have mostly been missing for the Xbox One. While we have all heard the joke about where are the Xbox games, mostly because of the lack of exclusives. Now we all know the jokes are mostly just that, jokes. However like most jokes there is a bit of truth to them, and this year at E3 Microsoft seems to be taking it a bit more seriously. For more info you can read?here.?

E3 games I want, and don’t ( Torsten version) – Gamefans8

E3 is on it’s way for 2018, and that means a whole lot of new game reveals as well the newest leaps forward in our favorite gaming tech. Savior did a list of?2 Games I Hope Are At E3, And 1 I stopped Caring About.?and asked me for my thoughts so here we go first with a few games I want…

?1. Resident Evil 2 remake- this game brings a lot of memories almost pissing myself with my friends as a kid. I loved the first game’s remake and I hope they give 2 a similar treatment.

?2. Code Vein- I love the horror themes and ass kicking gameplay of?BloodBorne?so when I saw a trailer that had such a combination but was rendered like an anime, I immediately fell in love with the concept of vampires, anime, and that swift Bloodborne gameplay.

?3. Moons of Madness- I saw the trailer for this a little while ago and I thought the idea of Lovecraft in space was pretty cool. As the marketing for Alien put it, in space no one can hear you scream, right?

And now, something I’m sure we’ll get that I couldn’t give a crap about…

? Battlefield 5- I loved?Battlefield 4?and Battlefield 1 was fun and interesting, going back to WW1 which many shooters don’t ever really do. I have to admit, this doesn’t really come down so much on the Battlefield series as much as my distaste for EA and how burned out I am on FPS games.?Star Wars: Battlefront 2? was the final nail in the coffin for me and if BF5 runs anything like that, I’m done with the series.

May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Gamefans8

Here we are, after all these years and all this talk. We knew it was coming, but finally we can say Red Dead Redemption 2 has a release date (October 26th 2018) and a whole bunch of info. Hold onto your hates cowboys and cow-ladies (is that a word?) we are in for a ride.

First as is already know, this game is a prequel to the first game and John Marston will be making some sort of appearance in the game as both him and the main character?Arthur Morgan are members of the?Van der Linde gang.

Hunting is also reportedly making its way back as you would expect, but this time around it is more detailed. The amount of damage will change the amount of money you get for the skins and bringing the animal back whole will also bring more money and it will also decay overtime, also making a difference.

Walking around with your guns drawn will also change how people react towards you, talking to people with your guns our for example won’t go over well as you can imagine. Horses now have a system of trust, the longer you have it and the better you treat it the further away it will hear you whistle and act better in a gun fun, but if it dies it is gone forever. You will also have to start the system all over again if you get a new horse.

You can see more details here along with other links to videos and such?here if you are interested, for now best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you greatness.
