It’s that time of year again for Geoff Keighley to wave his magic Wiimote and give us the gift of new game trailers to drool over for the next few months! Nick and Josh have chosen a couple games showcased during the announcements to discuss at length, and Andy drops a few honorable mentions!

Nick’s picks:

No Rest for the Wicked - From Moon Studios, the award-winning developers of Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps comes No Rest for the Wicked, a visceral, precision Action RPG set to reinvent the genre. - Moon Studios (Steam, Xbox, PS5, TBA)

Light No Fire - A game about adventure, building, survival and exploration together. Set on a fantasy planet the size of Earth. - Hello Games (Steam, TBA)

Josh’s picks:

Marvel’s Blade - In Marvel’s Blade, Eric Brooks is the legendary Daywalker, half-man, half-vampire torn between the warm society of the living and the rushing power of the undead. From Bethesda and Arkane Lyon, the studio that brought you Dishonored and “DEATHLOOP”, Marvel’s Blade is a mature, single-player, third-person game set in the heart of Paris, now in development in collaboration with Marvel Games. - Arkane Studios (PC, Xbox, TBA)

EXODUS - EXODUS was announced at The Game Awards 2023 and is an epic new sci-fi action-adventure role-playing game franchise developed by the team at Archetype Entertainment. Produced by Blur Studio. BECOME THE TRAVELER. - Archetype Entertainment (PC, Xbox, PS5)

Honorable mentions:

Sega announced it’s working on at least 5 remakes, possibly more, and possibly new IP! We aren’t holding our breath on that last one, but here’s the trailer which contains Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Shinobi, Golden Axe, and Streets of Rage!

Hideo Kojima has announced a new multi-media/new media horror project he’s been cooking up with genre enthusiast Jordan Peele! Little is known about the project, but there’s likely hints and spoilers for the upcoming game hidden in the trailer as usual! Let us know if you catch anything! Here’s the Trailer!

Sony Santa Monica hit us over the head with a brand new DLC, free to owners of the game! This one is called God of War Ragnarök: Valhalla. More God of War is always good God of War isn’t it? Oh yeah, and it’s out already by the time you’re reading this!

Embark Studios pulled a fast one on us, and dropped THE FINALS Season 1 during The Game Awards! Jump in now, free on your platform of choice! A link to the Steam version is here.

From the creators of the humble smash hit Untitled Goose Game, comes a new game Big Walk. House House describes the game as a “Cooperative Online Walker-Talker” Set out with your friends through a wide-open world full of challenges, puzzles, and discoveries. You’ll need to work together to find your way around, stay in contact using an assortment of tools and toys, and figure out new ways to communicate when you suddenly find yourself speechless. Adventuring aside, there’s plenty of time to just hang out. Sit and watch the sunset, or steal your friend’s binoculars and kick them into the ocean. Spending time with friends is the best part of a big walk. A link to the Steam version is here.

Lightspeed Studios showed off their project LAST SENTINEL. Set in dystopian Tokyo, this is an open-world action game with a seriously cool trailer. While we don’t know much about the game, and haven’t seen any gameplay, the trailer sure does look good!

What would any game show be without a few Warhammer 40k games? How about the long-awaited Space Marine 2? The game looks awesome from what we’ve seen so far, and if the first game is any indicator, we’ll be romping around in powersuits draining the blood of our foes in religious fervor come Sept, 9th 2024! 

Mecha Break is another in a series of new mech games we’ve been seeing lately. It looks faster-paced than Armored Core IV: Fires of Rubicon, and may be exactly what some mecha lovers need!

There was plenty more shown at The Game Awards this year! If you weren’t able to catch it live, and would like to see the whole show in it’s entirety it’s available here! Happy gaming everyone!
