I'm seeing Dishonored but no mention of TEW2. Is it confirmed anywhere?

Edit: OOPS, HERE WE GO!

They're seemingly showing the gamescom demo...

Stream was cutting up, but I managed to see the upgrade screen...

RE4 style contextual melee and slo-mo abilities... Not sure how I feel about that.

I want that cat!!!

I haven't finished watching it but I have opinions on this thing. Specifically on Tatiana, but I got work to do. It'll all have to wait.

Sebastian talks to save kitty. Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami officially have competition for GOTY.

After thinking on it a while, It seems fine, could be a lot of fun.

The only thing disappointing in that video is them saying the majority of the game takes place in Union. I was hoping there'd be multiple open areas, but I guess the whole game is just Union Streets and Union buildings.

I don't intend to use the upgrade screen so I can't pretend things like slow motion or RE4 melee really bother me. In fact it's great that when they decided to include features like that that they didn't force them at a base level. A lot of people struggle to aim and I think things like that could really help ease people into the game. That's the huge benefit of an upgrade system, that it can open up a game to wider audience without affecting people that are interested in a more deprived experience.

Visually it looked better or maybe this was just a better video of the visuals but headshots are definitely less good and that's a let down. I guessing all the head goo and parts covering things was a potential cause of slowdown, I remember you could cause a crash in TEW1 by exploding too many heads. Even though it was the same area again they don't need to show much more gameplay to me, I'm sold. Nice to see more gunplay though and also how quickly you get the bow, bodes well for the game when it gives you all the mechanics up front.

So apparently the Haunted are still the Haunted (though I might still call them New Haunted for a bit until I adjust), but the crazier mutations of some of them are called Hysterics.

When you first enter the hub world, apparently 15-18 side quests available at the start they also mention, more become available later but around that many in the first slice.

I'll do a full analysis in a bit.
