I think it's hard to make a good Mythos game, but this trailer looks at least as if this game has a fighting chance there.

You are spot-on, not the easiest realm to spring a new game from, but I'm wishing them all the best.

I don't think so. It's from Cyanide.

The really funny thing is, that it originally was announced to be developed by Frogware. At some point Focus Home Interactive gave it to Cyanide without explanation. It seems, Frogware and Cyanide had some divergences, because Frogware now has another publisher: Bigben Interactive, a main competitor to Focus. And Bigben bought Cyanide, the main developer for Focus, some weeks ago. And is also publisher for Frogware's open world adventure The Sinking City, that is based on Cthulhu/Lovecraft, too.

What kind of crazy nonsense is this? Seems Focus Home lost on both ends.

I'm an easy sell for this kind of thing. So long as they keep the atmosphere thick and don't jerk me around with impossible combat/puzzles for too long in any given scene, I can forgive a lot.

Agreed. For me, it's pretty hard to mess this up, get the vibes right, have a dependable save system, and I'll likely toss money at it.

Well considering it's the only game from E3 I've seen so far that's actually getting released in 2018…

I do hope it's good though. I'm a big fan of Lovecraft.

So you don't trust Assassin's Creed and Fallout to be released in October and November?

I think we already know the general opinion of Fallout.

I wasn't aware the new AC game was being released this year. That seems like an awful quick turnaround from AC Origins. Makes me wonder if perhaps it was originally being developed as an expansion.

Its been in development since Origins, in parallel with it, seems like they do that a lot and can often release games almost yearly.. though they have said earlier that they would stop doing that (lol) but made an exception here..

I bet that's pretty convenient practice, some shared assets etc, lots of good problem solving communication between the studios etc. It's also a bit boring because the graphics and "feel" can perhaps be a bit too similar, i guess i dont mind it too much here since i really like the graphics/feel etc.

Lately, graphics appear not to be as sharp as they could be. Vampyr, that stuff.

Uninspired use of colours, green saturated, looks like generic work.

AC Greece or whatever name is already 3 years in development. No, it wasn't an expansion - ACO got two expansions, both are meaty. Neither expansion can be completed in one afternoon like Doom or other 50 gigs on HDD/SSD id tech games.
