    Liking the Baldurs Gate 3 reveal. Enhanced DOS engine.
    I like that it's turn based. I've played all or most of the RTWP games, but turn based combat just makes more sense.
    Some of my favorite gaming moments have been in turn based games like X-com.

    It looks really good. If I had one issue with Divinity, it was that I just didn't care about the world/setting. I'm all on board for a similar experience using the D&D 5E ruleset and a setting I know.

    The Last of Us pt. 2 has a new release date of June 19. I thought it was something like that before. Oh well it’s good. When they changed it to tba a month ago I thought it was going to be delayed a long time.

    Ghost of Tsushima is coming July 17. I’ve preordered the collector’s edition :ok_hand:

    Both games are PS4 exclusives.

    I've got Last of Us pre-ordered with JB. I think this might be the one year in history where pre-ordering is worthwhile and meaningful. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there was supply issues this year because of My Corona.

    Looking forward to both but think GOT looks amazing. I’ve wanted an open world game set in Ancient Japan for ages, surprising the setting hasn’t been used previously. Nioh was ok but this looks top shelf

    Still waiting for something about Marvel’s The Avengers to impress me. I’ve started hyping myself a little bit lately as I’ve just played Marvel’s Spider-man and really enjoyed that, and I’m thinking Marvel is nothing but good quality lately so they won’t let this be bad.
    So I guess I’m hoping Avengers will be as fun as Spidey but I’m yet to see anything from the game to make me believe that.

    For those Star Wars fans who played X-Wing v Tie Fighter back in the day, you will likely get excited over the new Star Wars Sqaudron trailer.

    I’ve heard there will be a VR option which ties in great for me. I just rebuilt my PC to suit 4K and VR gaming.

    I’ll be buying it.

    Some of the best soundtracks in gaming.

    Hopefully they keep my FAVOURITE part of spiderman and include plenty of non-superhero side missions...

    My main concern is that it seems clear they will be forcibly making you play as all the avengers at various stages throughout the game. Who honestly sees any situation where playing as hawkeye or black widow is going to be useful compared to playing as iron man, thor, or hulk?

    If you preorder you get early access to the warehouse.

    I've been an Xbox guy for ages but I bought a PS4 specifically to play this game (had the originals on PS1 so have a lot of muscle memory for this game on the PS-style controller)

    Far Cry 6



    Setting is based on Cuba, apparently more Urban then previous FC games which will be interesting

    I was hesitant with 5 as I thought Montana would be a bit boring compared to Kyrat but the world was amazing and they upped the gameplay so much from 3&4

    Outriders.
    Anybody else play the demo?
    It seems very unfinished. Gameplay is pretty fun but the polish is lacking, especially in cut scenes with audio not in sync and some glitches with NPC interactions.
    Was gonna but this on release but now I’m more likely to wait for reviews and/or a sale.
