XSX Optimised

Come one, come all and say hello to the future! Microsoft’s busy announcing a whole bunch of stuff right now for the Xbox Series X, and much like the games arriving on it I too am optimised for the hype! I’m writing this post an hour before the event kicks off, and I’ll be updating it constantly throughout the livestream so hit F5 every couple of minutes if you want to see something new.

What will Microsoft be showing off? Team Green promised “a lot”, and while my expectations are somewhat tempered, I hope that translates to a few first-party surprises and some third-party treats. Here’s everything being announced today:

Bright Memory Infinite

Dirt 5

Scorn AKA HR Geiger Boners: The Game

Chorus

Madden NFL 21 more like Mehdden 21 amirite

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2, fangs a lot

Call of the Sea

The Ascent

The Medium, which totally isn’t based on that fake psychic Long Island lady TV series

Scarlet Nexus, which looks totally sugoi UWU

Second Extinction: Reclaim Earth

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay debut I’m viking this

      Agree. I think MS doesn’t understand what “gameplay” means. All they showed was just trailers. And most of the games there are from indie and AA studios. I was expecting to see games that show off the power of Series X.

        I guess, we’ll have to wait for that, but I read there might be some weird bottlenecking going on with the Series X.

            I’m budgeting for both again – saved up for the PS5, now I just need to put away for the XESEX. 😛

        The trailer for Bright Memory Infinite looks amazing mind you. If that’s gameplay, and it looks like it, the game definitely looks like it will take advantage of the power under the hood of the XSX!

          I played the first chapter of the PC version when it out. Awesome game. The game is very light weight. It looks just like the trailer while running on a GTX 1060. So it definitely doesn’t push the power of the series X.

            What’s more amazing is that 1 guy made it. Level Asian.

    Wow what a yawn fest. Really was expecting more than a GPU and SSD upgrade. It’s really just better looking games that load faster right now. Booooriiinggg

    Chorus looks interesting, and I’m keen to see how it shapes up but holy christmas how utterly disappointing… just a bunch of trailers? They should have just waited a while or thrown in some gameplay vids and honest reactions.

        And that trailer works, because it tells you absolutely nothing – 😀 It’s creepy as hell.

    MS before this lame AF ‘event’: “You want to see Xbox Series X gameplay. We want to show you Xbox Series X gameplay.”
    MS at start of event: “We’ve listened and we know you want to see gameplay, so all of what you are going to see is gameplay.”

    MS proceeds to show no gameplay at all, then has the gall to show a self-congratulatory interview with AC Valhalla dev where they talk about the gameplay everyone has just watched? WTF is this??!!

    I was genuinely interested in Series X and was considering a day one purchase if possible, but after this clusterfuck I definitely won’t be buying beforé next year if at all. Not only were the games shown completely meh, the whole gameplay lies were an appalling mis-step. MS, you were doing so well!
