VGX : the short version.


Far and away, the most interesting thing of the night was No Man's Sky, a procedurally-generated first-person multiplayer galaxy game, complete with space combat - from the folks who made Joe Danger, of all people.

Oh, and sorry these are all GT's player - none of them have high-quality YouTube versions (yet).

Telltale Games announced two new series - Tales from the Borderlands and the rumored Game of Thrones collaboration.

Thief got a new story trailer.

The Witcher 3 got a short new trailer, showing off the titular Wild Hunt.

Tom Clancy's The Division only had a little look-how-pretty-our-engine-is trailer.

Tim Schafer showed up, and showed off a lot of Broken Age, which looks marvelous.

There was a Quantum Break "gameplay trailer" in which they showed about ten seconds of actual gameplay, and was otherwise footage from the E3 trailer.

South Park : The Stick of Truth had a cool little gameplay trailer, showing off a projectile-fart tutorial.

Titanfall showed a short trailer about its newly-revealed heavy Titan class, the Ogre - which admittedly, looks pretty cool, and later they had another little one for the agile Strider Titan, which I'll throw up in the above link, once it becomes available.

There was a decent Destiny trailer.

My personal favorite thing of the night was, of course, new footage from Techland's Dying Light, as shown by a dev.  Oh Techland.  I love you.

It was actually a relatively-shitty showing, compared to past years.  There was nothing on par with the Uncharted 2 reveal or the Dark Souls II announcement, and co-host Joel McHale did everything he could to make each and every interview as awkward as possible and ensure everyone was aware how much he loathed being a part of the evening.  Granted, No Man's Sky took us all by surprise and looks totally awesome, and I am pleased as punch at the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition - so that will, at least, brighten up my January.
