    Found it ridiculous how Quantum Break was skipping E3 again, and ditto for the the dubious choice of not debuting Scalebound gameplay there; a Kamiya game would make much more sense for the nonsensical spectacle that is E3, moreso than something like Sea of Thieves which would feel more at home at a European/PC-focused tradeshow like Gamescom.

    Excellent MS have a much better line-up of 1st party titles then Sony at the minute. Sony seem to be sitting on there hands.

    After a great E3 I’m looking forward to seeing gameplay for Crackdown and Scalebound.

    Scalebound and Crackdown. Now, that’s what I want to see! I wonder if they still have the plans for the Quantum Break TV show or they are just going to release a regular game, either way it’s from Remedy and I liked Alan Wake and Max Payne so odds are good this will be at least decent.

    Remedy takes forever with there games but there usually very good.
