I like the look of this Hello games premiere.

Edit: The Last Campfire, strange name but nice trailer.

I don't generally base a purchase on a characters gender but if it just feels like pandering it makes me less likely to buy it, those characters in the FCNW trailer looked like they'd get old fast.

I loved the Tomb Raider reboot, Horizon ZD and I'm really looking forward to TLOU2 but that's because those are games that will let you get to know the character. FCNW isn't going to do that, so much of this stuff just seems like the pitch meeting started out with "We need the character to be female" before anything else.
Aren't they the villains in Far Cry or was I just not paying attention?

You can look at it as pandering but that's also how business try and grow market share. They have men so then they try and go after women to grow their market now. I guess thats still cynical but more number cruncher cynical and they will do that same thing in all different ways that go unnoticed.

I didn't even notice that there were a lot of women in the trailers until mentioned.

Geoff just did this to troll Joel

Looked like they were the playable characters to me.
I'm 99% sure they are the villains. I have already seen people complain that they aren't the main characters and I'm sure people are complaining that they exist period. So they are damned if they do damned if they don't.

I’m not all that interested in Super Smash Brothers. But the commercials are perfect. I thought it was Animal Crossing or some s***, then Mario comes in knocking heads.

Yeah it's just not going to happen though, yeah girls like to make money on twitch by gaming in their bikini but girls in general just don't play these games. It's their (publisher) way of trying to pretend they are being socially aware while trying to bring people in but it's just not going to work.

I still remember the commercial for the original, they've always been good at marketing that series.

HMM I hope they aren't the main characters, I guess I should have paid closer attention.

Some folk here might rage and debate about it here lol
I felt bad for the guy, he's clearly socially awkward. I can see how what he said could rub some people the wrong way but getting upset over it would be a waste of energy.

Yea I've seen him compete in fighting game tourneys and he's the same in those, even when he knows most of the people.

Atlas looked like it could be a cool online game if someone at that studio knew how to animate characters, make good looking water and get the game to run at a stable framerate in a trailer lol.

Probably a create a character lead again. Lead characters are usually irrelevant with the villians over the top.

Survived By looks like something I could get behind too if it comes to console.

Edit: apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so. Their site is down.
