Yet another cold day, although I must say that I’ve been keeping warm playing games that Geoff would kill for but can’t play because he’s at E3.  At last, the jealousy is reversed!  In any event, here’s all the news we didn’t print because we were drawing up plans for battle robots.

The lovely lady today is provided by our friends over at LWMag, Danielle apparently can down three guys and giggle.. or did I read that wrong?

In Other News: The Witcher 3 will remember all the debauchery from The Witcher 2, police cars take away from fantasy elements, and I’m still really excited for Dragon Age.

News:

Here’s a list of confirmed games for Xbox One

As well as a list for PS4

Witcher 3 will use your Witcher 2 save file to remind you who you slept with before

Get ready to die again, a lot, in Dark Souls 2

Stuff:

There’s a hidden feminist statement at E3

Cops called to shut down the OUYA guys in the E3 parking lot

Some Japanese gamers don’t think FFXV is fantasy enough

Video:

      Am I the only person who liked DA2?

      The only gripe I agree with completely is the full retard one dungeon map. The first time I saw it I thought I screwed up & went to the wrong place. That was just… wow.

        I haveto say it wasnt the most dissappointing game I have ever played though. That ‘honor is reserved for Diablo 3. That was KAK!

    After today, I feel like slapping my Xbox (no, that isn’t a euphemism). I swear it’s been sitting there, blushing, with a very nonchalant look on it’s face. I feel sorry for it, but want to take my rage at Xbox One out on something! What do I do?! http://imgur.com/pdMJoh4

      Nothing wrong with the 360. I will be buying another 2 to last another decade. So will a whole lot of ONE owners considering they cannot play kick ass 360 games on the ONE THAT DOES EVERYTHING EXCEPT PLAY 360 GAMES.

        I think I’ll pick up the new one they are releasing. I’ll stay with 360 for at least another year, and will also pick up an PS3.

          The new one looks butt ugly. Wait until they have hit our shores then the old slim will be halved in price to clear stock.

          Clever how they justify NO PRICE drop because they give a FUCKING POINTLESS FACELIFT.

          If it was still the FAT xbox I bet it will be R999 in the stores now considering my CORE 360 was R1999 back in 2007.

          Greedy buggers.

      The weird thing is, I can’t even look at my 360 any more. It’s weird, I expected Microsoft’s stance on the xbone to be unchanged, and yet… I have so much anger towards my xbox 360…

    The Xbox exclusive list does look nicer than the PS4 one. If MS has got two things right for next gen it is in the games and controller… Arguably the two most important parts of a gaming console…

      More exclusives yes, but better is a matter of opinion. PS has stuff that is in their “other” list that is available on PC as well but not on XBox, but once again not better for everyone. Controllers…well I maintain I will wait for a hands-on with both before I make up my mind, but that touch pad does look a bit “off” to me on the PS4 controller.

        A lot of their other stuff could go to both consoles in the end. But I agree, it is down to personal game type preferences. But there are literally 3 games on the PS4 list that jump out to me, and 9 on the Xbox ONE list that do. That is a huge difference for me. And with MS now having all those studios making games, going forward every year the Xbox ONE will probably get more exclusives than the PS4. If anything, this next generation will be known as the generation of Exclusive titles!

          Pray tell, what are these exclusives? Halo is a glimmer in Microsoft’s eye currently. Won’t be seeing that for at least a year. Dead Rising has lost all of it’s personality and uniqueness (and is a timed exclusive). Killer Instinct is not even made by Rare, and isn’t even that exciting in the grand scheme of things as a fighter. Forza 5 is something to look forward to, but Drive Club is more interesting as a new IP. Sunset Overdrive looks really interesting, but there has been no gameplay, and Insomniac have underperformed lately. Quantum Break is an enigma, with potential, just judging by Remedy’s pedigree alone.
          What else?

            You might not be interested in them… but my list is as follows.

            On the PS4: Infamous Second Son (I love the Infamous series), The Order 1886 and Secret Ponchos. I haven’t enjoyed a single Killzone so not keen for the new one. DriveClub doesn’t interest me as its a racing game, and Knack, the cam videos I saw make the game look rather boring to me.

            On the Xbox One: Below (looks rather different), Dead Rising 3 (that trailer made me very excited), Halo, Killer Instinct (might not be by Rare, but its still Killer Instinct), Ryse (so excited), Sunset Overdrive (one of my favourite devs, so still keen for it), Quantum Break and D4 (episodic story games are my favourite genre)

            Yeah, the fact that I don’t like racing games or Killzone really changes everything…. but if I did, it would still be 9v5 for me.

          And the PS4 games that come to PC, I could always get on PC in any case (Same with some Xbox games going to PC). Any case, moot point since I have no proper interwebz (and if I had I would have been on the WoW and LoL forums not here hahaha)

    Does anybody have any idea why News24 is so stupid?

    They have an affiliating with Lazygamer (being linked to the news24 page and all) who has 2 gaming journalists at E3 yet went they want to publish anything regarding E3 they revert to copy and paste articles of american and french agencies (AP and AFP).

    Ai tog, opportunity to show their readers that they do provide original news content from SA viewpoint and promoting Lazygamer wasted for no other reason (as far as I can see) than laziness.
