We’re talking about Hitman at the following link.

I’ve done a rant before about award shows where video games are concerned.

I like them. Especially where they are currently in how they’re done. But it could always be better. I’ve made the connection before that the large numbers of people watching are mostly doing it for the new reveals of games. So more of those and on a bigger scale of game brings in more viewership and that brings in more ad revenue. This is why in a near 3 hour show there’s only about 30 minutes of actually giving out awards. I’d love to see the numbers of a regular awards presentation with NO new games revealed.

That’s probably called the BAFTA’s.

 

We’ve got this one in the bag at the following link.

I want to say oh, how the mighty have fallen, but I don’t know that it really applies when talking about Bethesda and what they have with Fallout 76.

It feels like an outlier. Something in an alternate timeline, like the Elseworlds series from DC. Sort of a…what if, scenario. They experimented and it didn’t really work. I mean, it’s early, but I think it’s safe to say whatever they have done here did not work at all. And it isn’t helping matters with the whole canvas bag fiasco, either.

But still, I think they can and will wright the ship. Hell, they could easily get the heat off of them and drop more info on Elder Scrolls 6. Sure, there will be squinty eyes that question the motive, but they’ll have WAY more talk about what’s going on there than with Fallout 76.

The other way will be when they announce another Fallout game and get back to form. It would help as well to admit the experiment was a mistake, but I doubt they’ll ever do that.
