Summer Skin Fest!

Good on Geoff for landing that Elden Ring trailer. Maybe Bandai Namco was privy in to what was going on at the Xbox+Bethesda show as well as Summer Game Fest and thought, "Oh, we can just own this whole day and probably the next too."

That Metal Slug Tactics game is something I didn't knew I wanted to see happen.

Good presentation. The winner for me? Metal Slug Tactics. Elder Ring is another Demon/Dark Souls. And while I love those games, they are really over doing them. And shout out to the new Black Ops Zombies mode coming next week. Zombies definitely saved the multiplayer in that game.

@av_gamer: Is the 5-6 year gap between 3 and elden ring really over doing it? Sekiro was 2 years ago (almost 3 by the time elden ring is out) but for many it didn't scratch quite the same itch. It's not like they're an annual franchise that never tries anything new.

I loved Danny's excitement. And who would've thought Metal Slug Tactics would out-surprise an Elden Ring trailer?!?!

Salt and Sacrifice and Metal Slug Tactics look super dope.

And Elden Ring, of course.

Quick straw poll: Now that they are up and running, who here is conflicted over the idea of wanting to watch all these 'E3' streams twice, once with GB's commentary and then once with Nextlander's?

I sincerely hope that the reason Jeff G has referenced the Jeff Goldblum secret ending to The Lost World on PS1 on both this and the Bombcast is because I wrote an email about it. I think about it way too often to be considered a healthy person.

I’m happy about Elden Ring, Endless Dungeon, and Back 4 Blood, but that Weezer performance wipes out all the combined goodwill from those. Woof.

I mean I'm going to do it but it is going to take me a while. Only so much time in the day and I usually watch the show without commentary once first and then with Giant Bomb talking over it. So now I'd be watching the same show 3 times. Dunno if I will do it for every single thing next week. But I plan on trying.

@ithas2besaidkvo: I did not really feel conflicted about it. Granted, yes I would love to see them all talk in the same "room" and all, who doesn't? But I still want to hear their takes so I will make the time to do so. I mean, I'm somehow able to get through all their GOTY stuff, this is about the same length in comparison to me.

Edit: Hell yeah, Metal Gear Tactics amiright?

i like how jeff's radio segment duty is just one of those things we all know about, and barely think about as giantbombers but i swear in 10 years i've never once heard it in the real world and at this point, could be just be a running gag and id have no idea

At least when you are watching other reactions / watching this one after other ones, there is a bunch of things you can just skip over. Unless you really love Wheezer of course.

Elden Ring looks fun, there is definitely some animation skeleton hold-over from Sekiro there, combined with Souls elements and what seems like more RPG build variety. I liked Sekiro but the melding of math and action is what makes the Souls games for me. Looking forward to seeing what they do with possibly more open environments.

Metal Slug Tactics got me so excited, the peanut butter (Metal Slug) and chocolate (SRPG) they have combined are two of my favorite things. Seems like a yummy combo to me!!!

I'm also totally down for a Salt and Sanctuary follow-up, that's a great game.

I really enjoyed this show on the whole, more cool stuff than I had expected!

Personally I'm super happy because I usually like to watch these shows at least twice anyway - now I can do it with different commentary on each one.

Had a lot of fun in the livestream thanks guys. The show itself felt really slow and bloated with skins, celebrities and other nonsense, but there were a couple cool games shown that I'm interested in seeing more of.

@moda: I mean, in his defense, I don't have many positives to say about the stuff that was shown either. Sometimes it's just not your cup of tea.

Glad people got some of what they wanted, but Chicory was the best looking thing in that show to me, so I'm happy it's already out.

Technically not a new game but Demon Souls remake is not a year old.

Apparently Will Smith is working on that Anacrusis game. You know, that alien Left 4 Dead-alike that looked really way too early to be shown?

Oh man, Jason talking about his son seeing the new Ratchet and Clank on the cross-media bar but having to tell him he can't play it cause it's not out made me realize I had never thought of that aspect of the lives of people in game journalism. Like, sure, as a kid you might get access to a lot of games day 1, but that sensation of the game being in your house but you can't touch it would drive a young me crazy... It'd be like when I saw the N64 hidden in my parents bedroom when I was a kid a month before Christmas. Just a lot more of the time.

Danny, I too would like a a Cú Chulainn/Cúchulainn game! The Irish epic tales of the Ulster Cycle have been overlooked way too long and would make for the basis of great games.

For those that don't know, the ancient Irish were badass mother ______ers! And, Cúchulainn was one of the more well know characters - he is like Achilles and Beowulf. Cú Chulainn owned a supernatural spear Gae bulga ("spear of mortal pain/death"). The spear itself was made from the bones of a sea monster and you had to throw it "...from the fork of the toes. It entered a man's body with a single wound, like a javelin, then opened into thirty barbs. Only by cutting away the flesh could it be taken from a man's body." So a spear made from sea monster bones that when thrown it sprang open with barbs that so mutilated that person body....nice.
