    THREAD OF HYPE

    A non-year-specific hype thread for your non-year-specific hype needs. Hype games that you are hyped for, but not quite hyped enough for to warrant separate threads.

    Something called the Paris Games Week just happened and Sony revealed a ton of cool looking stuff. Shadow of Colossus Re-Remastered, TLOU2, Guacamelee 2.

    Mainly tho, what got MY hypejuices flowing, was THIS



    100% concentrated 80's Hong Kong John Woo ACTION. PACKED. MADNESS.

    Y'know what, the Guacamelee 2 trailer is also great enough to warrant posting.



    Guacamelee 1 had my fave melee combat in any 2D platformer, and this seems to be building on that beautifully.

    Also, damn.



    Are Infamous-devs Sucker Punch about to serve up a Tenchu for a new generation?

    From the official website:
    The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan—until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting—the way of the Ghost—as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.

    Some great titles there from the Paris event although I was a little disappointed that From Software didn't have anything ready to show.

    Ghost was one of the clear highlights for a new franchise although along with Spelunky 2 (one of the most replayable games ever made), I'd love to see some gameplay footage. Also great to see another Guacamelee as it's one of my favourite couch co-op games; although I've never been able to beat the final boss.

    Ooh! Guacamelee 2! I hadn't even heard of the sequel until now! The first game is one of my favourite games from the recent years, so I'm very much looking forward to this. No mention of the PC release yet, but I'm expecting it to be only a matter of time...

    Loved how Guacamelee did not feel racist, but had love for Mexican culture (and video game culture as well) and a bit of room for some tongue-in-cheek humor. Plus, it was great game. <3

    Hope the sequel delivers. Fingers crossed!

    Looks promising. Hopefully it turns out more like Mark of the Ninja than Assassin's Creed Chronicles when it's finished

    Haven't played Assassin's Creed Chronicles, but Mark of the Ninja struck me as being more like modern take on the Prince of Persia formula with some added spice thrown into the mix. This game looks like a stealthy take on a proper tried and true Metroidvania.

    All of the clickbaiting "gaming journalists" are having a cry over the PGW17 trailer for The Last of Us 2.

    This Polygon one is hilarious. They literally say that ultra-violence in gaming marketing is okay if it's perpetrated against non-minority men.

    Never mind that the game's setting is a post-apocalyptic dystopian world where society has broken down. Things are supposed to be brutal and uncompromising in such a state!



    They're also having a whinge over the PGW17 trailer for the latest David Cage interactive movie, Detroit: Become Human. Where a shitty dad beats and/or murders his daughter and their android maid. Ah yup, let's forget that this violence isn't gratuitous, it's serving the purpose of exploring human morality.

    We already discussed that trailer extensively in the TLOU 2 thread.

    First off, what? Secondly, they don't say that.

    I think they do.

    They're not just saying that "ultra-violence in gaming marketing is okay if it's perpetrated against non-minority men", they're saying "ultra-violence in gaming marketing is more tolerable if there's context to it, and it's perpetrated against non-minority men". Ok, they could've done without that last bit.

    Anyway, why the hell am I defending Polygon's criticism of the TLOU 2 trailer. I liked that trailer.

    Just because you like the trailer doesn't mean Eva's not bullshitting.

    I hadn't even heard about this until recently - a new Metro game called Exodus. Sounds like while it won't be open world, the outside areas will be a bit less linear than previous games. The visuals on the above ground areas look pretty good.

    SENJYRO VARCYRIA FHO!

    Cautiously hyped. I'm not gonna get too hyped. Not after that last Valkyria Chronicles game that turned out not to be a proper Valkyria Chronicles game. But this does seem to a proper one. Still, gonna wait for gameplay footage before engaging maximum hype levels.

    Yeah, the more the series goes on, the more I think the first was their lightning-in-a-bottle moment.

    I dunno about that. VC 2 was really good, and 3 apparently followed suit, with their only downside being that that they were released exclusively for the PSP. Sega's big problem wasn't that they couldn't follow it up, more that they just kinda futzed around with side projects instead of giving it a proper sequel on a big console.

    Ghosts of Tsushima looks interesting. Stealth action always appeals to me and it looks like the art will be dope.

    Hong Kong Massacre is Hotline Miami rebooted, no?

    Seems the PS4 has loads of great exclusives. Imma have to get one finally.

    Into The Breach is the next game by FTL-devs Subset games.

    Much like FTL it seems to be a game whose brilliance can't be conveyed via video, so here's the RPS gang gushing about it instead.

    It’s a lot like Invisible, Inc., while simultaneously being an entirely different kettle of kaiju. What’s similar is that I can spend so long mulling over the consequences of a single move – it’s amazing, because it shows you the consequences. There are no dice rolls, no random elements beyond the actual layouts and enemy placements. It gives you all the data and then you have to figure out how to make use of it.
    I am suddenly very hyped for this. Turn based tactics games with no (or a minimum of) dice rolls are the best kind.

    I think I'd be more impressed if I hadn't lived a year on Tsushima and didn't realize it doesn't actually look like the island ... except one shot with the mountains in the background could pass for around the area where I lived. As an open world samurai game it sounds very cool anyway.
