That seems like the worst possible input for a Commander Keen game. But that's okay because Commander Keen is only good in the minds of people who had PCs at the time when they didn't have any proper games.

Well yes, I wasn't allowed a console until I was about 11, so I didn't have Mario or Sonic, I had Commander Keen.

I've not had something to be all "They murdered my childhood!" over before, and now it's happened to me... well I don't really care, it wasn't particularly important to me.

I can see a reality where Commander Keen would have meant something to me,  but it is absolutely baffling to kids who had Amigas, consoles, etc.

Was it really that bad? Commander Keen was better than loads of home console platformers as I recall. I had the one with a fish that chased you and you had to make it eat littler fish from your arse.

Commander Keen 4 is probably the 6th best game of all time. If you do the math, it checks out.

For me the motion just feels very bad in the first game. Slidey, floaty, and with a delay before jumping. I just played 4 briefly to check and it's much, much better in that one. Maybe I'll play all of 4.

Come on Bethesda, are we getting Prey 2 or what?

I've only JUST started Mooncrash. Prey 2 can wait.

4 and 5 are the better one's yeah.

The series did something that was really cool at the time of having an entire Alien alphabet, then in one level in the 3rd game, gave you an entire translation, so if you were so inclined, you'd go back through the game translating Alien signs.

I think it all said quite basic stuff, but it added to the feeling of mystery, that they're could be more secrets to discover, even after you discover the obligatory secret level.

Watchdogs Legion looks really interesting, obviously the setting is great and will fulfil all your dystopian remainer fantasies.

Not sure about the game mechanic of constantly switching characters through, it doesn't feel you'd ever get much investment in any one of them.

It does actually sound insanely ambitious though, so presumably they're massively overselling it.

Also don't want to get all John Cleese about it but Ubisofts London with its vast array of diverse characters, odd how they all had the same Guy Ritchie film cockney accent.

Ubisoft's was the worst yet. Who gives a fuck about The Division and Ghost Recon? Well, a lot of people apparently. I was too down on the Xbox conference, they showed a fuckload of games and a lot of them looked great, even if it was a bit overly cutscene-ish. That Cyberpunk 2077 CGI trailer was awful. Made me completely forget why I was ever interested in the game to begin with, even though I do love Keanu Reeves.
That Ghostwire Tokyo game from Bethesda sounds perfectly up my street so I've got something to look forward to from E3 at least!

The Square Enix conference feels like this weird parody where it's just earnestly announcing remakes of beloved classics that don't actually exist. 'And now... Secret Saga X Wonderous Vision 5 S is coming to a new generation. and for the first time... Blenis Unrevolved: Crystal Brave, the most popular MMORPG of all time, has a new expansion pack...'

As with last year, the pisstaking is currently my favourite bit of E3 2019.

Here's Gameinformer taking some good shots at yesterday's big games and announcements, with the bit about Avengers being particularly funny.

Nobody mentioning Breath of the Wild 2 then?

Really liked the tone of that trailer. If they did the equivalent of Majora's Mask for Breath of the Wild then my god.

So the new Watch Dogs is set in London.



I hope that Camden has that pizza shop you can get a slice and free salad with garlic dressing at 3 in the morning.

We've been talking about the Direct in the Switch thread, but not much about Zelda. Hope there's more story, and maybe a slightly smaller world - ideally not reusing the landscape from BOTW.

I thought that trailer was great, in any case. The art style continues to impress, and as a lover of Zelda lore, I was excited by the prospect of them trying to destroy an ancient Ganondorf corpse - if that's what was happening.

Yeah I got silly excited at seeing Camden.

We've seen a dozen bad recreations of Central London in games, but seeing a recognisable Camden is something else.

Intrigued to see Wolfenstein Youngblood was co-developed by Arkane, who were apparently recruited to improve the level design and skills system. Arkane + Wolfenstein could be special.
