apparently no one at the company told my studio that this was real so there was a bunch of slack activity advising everyone to delete these emails and report them as suspicious phishing attempts

Just watched a trailer for a game called Weird West, which is an isometric action-rpg in a Wild West setting that contains heavy elements of the supernatural.

Not to be confused with previously-released Hard West, a turn-based strategy game in a Wild West setting that contains heavy elements of the supernatural.

Nor to be confused with newly-announced Evil West, a third-person shooter/character action game in a Wild West setting that contains heavy elements of the supernatural.

Same, tbh the only thing that’s really making me go WhiteGuyBlinking.gif is that all three games are just “___ West” like bro, put in some effort

One of those is directed by a former Arkane employee. That’s the one I will definitely play.

Edit: Weird West is the one. Raphaël Colantonio is on the job this time.

People are still trying to capitalize on the hypothetical coolness of the Dark Tower and Deadlands, that neither The Dark Tower or Deadlands could actually express in practice.

Maybe one of them will pull it off someday!

I’m obsessed with What Is Going On With DokeV

Only game promo media I’ve seen in recent memory that is totally bewildering

I keep coming back to how obscenely expensive it looks

My understanding is that children want to watch/play media with avatars that appear a few years older than they are, but by that metric the kids who would potentially play this game would rather have an animal avatar.

is this just like, a social sandbox MMO? a battle royale explicitly for kids? not sure what’s happening and I know it’ll never be for me

It’s actually not an MMO anymore, it’s like a monster hunter/Pokémon mashup. Note the ghostbusters packs and summoning/transformation sequences.

I love all the lil guys

hmm i dont like this

I think it looks very fun but also that any kid playing a game about playing imaginatively outside should probably do that at least 2-3x as much as the video game
