A very large E3 2019 interview with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma was published by Kotaku’s Jason Schreier earlier today. Aonuma discussed a wide variety of topics. Firstly, Aonuma chimed in the debate about crunch and Nintendo’s working conditions. Here’s what Aonuma said: “When creating a game, game development is all about the people. So […]

Monster Hunter World was in my opinion, last year’s sleeper hit game. Monster Hunter World was so good that as a result it’s Capcom’s all time selling game. If you played this game then you know what the experience is like killing monsters, using a variety of weapons and traversing over various terrain killing these […]

After what felt like an eternity waiting since the last general Nintendo Direct happened way back in February (not counting the Pokémon or Super Mario Maker 2 presentations) Nintendo finally pulled back the curtain on what exactly it had up its sleeve for 2019 and beyond. The results, while certainly a mixed bag, were stronger […]

Unbeknownst to me, Granblue Fantasy is a pretty popular franchise in Japan. Developed by CyGames, the titular game was an RPG released on mobile devices and web browsers. It garnered enough acclaim to receive an anime adaptation in January 2017. Despite my limited knowledge of the franchise, I was eager to try out the newest […]

Links-Home–Reviews–Articles–Library–Contact Okay guys, it is time for me to weigh in on an issue that has come to my attention concerning the upcoming Pokémon game, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Instead of dancing around what that issue is, I will state it quite plainly: there are apparently going to be some cuts in the Pokémon […]

The Game Fanatics

The RPG genre has taken a hit in recent years. Following big publisher buyouts, many of the beloved RPG titles that we know and love are decreasing in quality. What used to be open and robust games are now a microtransaction covered shell of what they once were. Dragon Age 4 has no clear release […]

Let’s get something out of the way very quickly: I’m not a longtime Borderlands fan. I’m just not. While quite familiar with the series, and I have played it at a friend’s house occasionally, I never poured in innumerable hours finding the best loot possible or mowing down countless psychos. The most time I’ve spent […]

The 2019 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) took place in Los Angeles from June 11 to 13. As most gamers know, E3 is one of the most prominent gaming events in the world. I’m pretty active on Twitter and every day I see E3 2019 on Twitter trending with hundreds of thousands of […]

What will be its real name? The evening Inbox wonders why Fable IV hasn’t been announced yet, as one reader is upset at the lack of Modern Warfare news at E3. To join in with the discussions yourself email gamecentral@ukmetro.co.uk   [metro-fact-box title=”Infinite ideas” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] Not sure why neither Sony or Microsoft are saying what their consoles are called, especially since Sony’s is bound to be PlayStation 5, but I wonder if there’s been any new clues as to what Project Scarlett will be? I don’t think codenames ever have anything to do with the real names, and I’m guessing they won’t use a number, so Xbox Infinite seems a good guess, yes? Matches with Halo Infinite and makes sense in terms of them wanting it to be on ever device. What I’m not clear on is if they’re going to release the base model and the Xbox One X equivalent at the same time. I’ve got the impression that they will, which is going to create some difficult decisions at launch. I think it’s the best choice because I really don’t want to ‘have’ to buy the base model at launch because that’s the only one and then be confronted with the more powerful version two years later. I think that would be dishonest, but if they do release them both at the same time then I personally would go for the most expensive option. I don’t like the idea of mid-generation upgrades. The Nintendo stuff is fine because the innards are the same but I don’t want to find out my expensive new console only has a half life of a couple of years. Winston [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Between generations” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] So I’m confused, is Elden Ring a current gen or next gen game? Considering they showed essentially nothing of it at E3 that implies we’re not going to see anything about it for months and, well… the PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett are going to be out next Christmas. Is Bandai Namco really going to want to be releasing that at the same time or even after they come out? What is the release date? Doesn’t the timing suggest that it’s probably going to be an early next gen game and they just can’t say it yet? There’s so many games that are due out next year, a lot of them from Sony, that the new consoles are in danger of being lost in a sea of what will be by then last gen games. That’s probably not that different from this gen, except I hated the first two years of the PlayStation 4, where nothing any good came out and it felt like the whole thing had started way before it was ready. I guess from Sony’s point of view things turned out well so there’s no reason to change, but it all sounds like a mess to me, and that’s even before you to take into account streaming. Gort [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Unwanted memo” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] Just in case I missed a memo, are we still none the wiser about the remaster Bluepoint is currently working on? I need to know if it’s Demon’s Souls or not as I’ve been putting off playing it on PlayStation 3 just in case it’s that but the wait is getting a bit silly now. Simundo Jones GC: The only news from Bluepoint lately has been the very sad annoucement that co-founder Andy O’Neil has passed away, at the age of 47. He was also technical lead on Metroid Prime, so that’s a great loss to the industry. So Bluepoint probably aren’t in a talkative mood at the moment. [/metro-fact-box]   E-mail your comments to: gamecentral@ukmetro.co.uk   [metro-fact-box title=”Unanswered Call” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] Was there any Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare update/news/previews at E3? If not do you know when we likely see some? Apart from the big hitters I’m quietly looking forward to Deathloop, seems interesting and the gameplay should be solid. Ranny2011 GC: Activision didn’t have a stand at E3 this year. They were behind closed doors, but only showing the two clips that have already been reported on. It’s not clear why they were being so reticent, but they implied to us they had their own event planned for later in the year. [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Mutually beneficial” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] So, I’ve been wondering, the free games that feature every month on PS Plus, do the people who make those have any say that their games are being given away for free or is it entirely Sony’s discretion? Or is there some sort of payment/compensation given to them? Because obviously they’d prefer people buy their games, not be given them free. Liam GC: They’re compensated, or otherwise Sony would essentially be pirating their games. Companies are usually very keen on the idea, especially if they have lucrative DLC or microtransactions that they can tempt a much wider audience into buying them. [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Only first” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] Just so I don’t potentially embarrass myself on this weekend’s Hot Topic, do Cyberpunk 2077 and The Outer Worlds have the ability to switch to third person like in The Elder Scrolls and Fallout? I know it’s not a major thing, but looking at the in-depth character customisation options for them, it would seem a given, right? I would like to be able to see my character – in the game world and not just on a menu screen – see how pretty I am and how fly I look in either my cyber-noir threads or space adventurer armour. It also helps build attachment to my character. Naturally, when it comes to the shooty shooting and stabby stabbing bits you go back to first person just like you do in Elder Scrolls and Fallout. That would be nice, yes? DMR GC: Both games have stated they won’t have third person views. That could change but probably not at launch. [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Fabled reveal” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] I didn’t miss something did I, GC? There was not a peep about the new Fable game? That makes two E3s in a row where it’s been a ‘nudge-nudge, wink-wink’ open secret and yet hasn’t been announced. Any word on what’s happening with it? Sparky the Yak GC: Nothing new. The theory is that they didn’t show it because it’s only on Project Scarlett, whereas Halo Infinite is also on Xbox One. Which means there may not be an annoucement until next year now. [/metro-fact-box]   Catch up on every previous Games Inbox here   [metro-fact-box title=”First reveal” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] I will be gutted if Cyberpunk 2077 ends up being a disappointment but the amount of negative press is slowly building up. It made me realise that we’ve been hearing about this game for a while now – two E3s and a Gamescom – so maybe the more recent idea of only announcing games a few months before they’re out might be best after all. Although that’s kind of admitting that the game isn’t as good as it’s cracked up to be and there is ways for companies to hide that fact. The eternal question of when and how much to show off of a game has never really been answered. Everything always look good during that first reveal, but then the more you find out the more there is to be disappointed by. I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as you read a review before purchasing, but how many people have already pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 or any of the other amazing looking games that were shown at E3? I mean, that’s pretty much what E3 has become now – a way to advertise pre-orders. Buy now, find out if it’s any good later (no refunds). Kimble [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”Inbox also-rans” colour=”grey” icon=”no-icon”] I’ve noticed you’ve done some writing on the Farming Simulator games. Here’s a tip: The farm of ‘Millennial Farmer’ Zach Johnson (280,000+ subscribers on YouTube) is coming to Farming Simulator 19 as a mod. Erik When is your review for Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night going up? Willesden Green rocks GC: Even ignoring E3 they didn’t send copies out early, so it’ll be a few days. [/metro-fact-box]   [metro-fact-box title=”This week’s Hot Topic” colour=”grey” icon=”exclamation”] With E3 2019 having just finished the subject for this weekend’s Inbox asks what you thought was the best and worst announcements of the show. What do you think was the best game or hardware (or service) reveal and why? And which was the worst? What gameplay footage impressed you the most and which games are you now looking forward to more – or less – than you were before E3? Do you think E3 2019 was a vintage year and what were the best and worst aspects about it? Who do you think ‘won’ E3 and what was the best press conference?

It’s that time of year where large, multinational video game companies gather to celebrate themselves and show their work. They reveal footage of games coming in the next 12 – 6 months and tease logos and cinematics of current projects at lengthy press conferences packed with cheering fans–some genuine and some who might happen to […]
