Outer Worlds is a space western and very Victorian at it. Does everyone just want the setting of their games to end in punk?
InXile most likely will dabble on the theme they know best, post apocalyptic. Even though Ryuu likes to say that Wasteland is a copy of Fallout, it really isn’t; from tone of their world to squad based style of gameplay in Wasteland series, they differ.
Xbox doesn't have any Steampunk or Cyberpunk titles which are vastly different from any other RPG settings they have.
Avowed and Elder Scrolls will get compared, it's unavoidable, both also will have a focus on sword fighting while being in the old age fantasy setting. The Outer Worlds is Space/Sci-Fi and basically Fallout in space. Feels like Starfield will be a more modern day grounded Sci-Fi.
I'm not saying Wasteland is a copy of Fallout but Fallout is literally a spiritual successor to Wasteland, there will be comparisons made and Fallout did used to be a turn based isometric title like Wasteland, if Wasteland follows the same trajectory as Fallout meaning going from isometric to ARPG 3rd Person there will be even more comparisons made, it will be inevitable and there will be similarities, the main one being they're both post-apocalyptic settings caused by a nuclear holocaust.
That squad based gameplay will get dumbed down for an ARPG and it'll be almost no different than recruiting companions in Fallout. InXile doing Steampunk Fantasy or Cyberpunk will differentiate themselves completely from other RPGs Xbox is creating, which will provide us with more variety.
Halo 3 would be cool but idk if they should do a stand-alone game. Have blur do the cutscenes, add the campaign and multiplayer to MCC, have the ability to switch between classic and remaster like CE and 2. But for the love of god do ALL halo 3 mp maps and have them play true to the original.
I don't think it should be standalone, make it a huge update to MCC.
And people have the nerve to complain about Halo infinite's graphics. They should count their blessings lol
Halo 3 also received a huge downgrade from the trailers to the actual game...
I want a very low-tech space western game personally. Lower case space, upper case WESTERN, if you know what I mean. Something more like Firefly where the technology level is very low outside of of the core planets,with lots of lawlessness on the frontier planets, and grounded, realistic, low tech weapons. I also want proper space combat options, bounty missions, ship customization, detailed character customization, and more in said game. Always dreamed of making that game myself, but I'm no AAA dev, and it would take a AAA budget to do it properly.
Maybe Starfield will be more like what I want, but I doubt it, it sounds more like it will be based on our real world timeline, except 50 or so years in the future when we first master long range interplanetary travel and start colonization efforts on planets outside of our solar system. It'll be low tech sci-fi, but without the western elements I think.
Starfield definitely looks modern day from the leaked pictures, I'm thinking something like The Expanse (which is an amazing show, but I don't know how it would work as a game).
Quantum Break winning. Time to call up Remedy and make a deal for a sequel, or at least a QB DLC for Control 2.
Voted Killer Instinct.
Hey guys I never bought a console on release date, always like 6 months-12 months after release as it was impossible to find in my home country.
I now live in UK. I know that there are no pre orders available anymore. On release day, do they also send units for retailers that are not linked to pre orders or basically if you dont get a pre order you dont get a console? Looking to get an Xbox Series X or maybe a Series S.
Typically, yeah, they'll reserve some units for physical locations at launch, I believe Aaron confirmed it too.Last edited by Ryuu96 - on 17 October 2020
