PC Gaming Show Is Full of Cool E3 2019 Games Youve Never

first_imgStay on target With so many video games being announced all at once, at E3 most folks paying attention tend to gravitate toward the heavy hitters, the known qualities, the big franchises. Microsoft may have technically showcased 60 games at its press conference, but pretty much everyone walked away talking about the same small handful of hits like Halo Infinite, Gears of War 5, the next gen Xbox Project Scarlett, and Cyberpunk 2077 now featuring Keanu Reeves. What makes the annual PC Gaming Show so cool then is that without a major first-party publisher skewing the agenda and focus, this scrappy little event can pretty much purely focus on intriguing indie games, games that remind you that PC gaming’s legacy isn’t just shooters but also niche strategy games and sims, weird and small games you’ve never heard of but you definitely should know about. And we saw a lovely amount of those games at this year’s show.That’s not to say there weren’t any big games on display. We got new looks at Borderlands 3, Shenmue 3, Baldur’s Gate 3, Warframe updates, Vampires: The Masquerades Bloodlines 2, Vermintide 2, and Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from the original creator of Assassin’s Creed. But even these big games have a kind of quirky humility that fit with open-source platform spirit of the show.AdChoices广告And some powers behind the scenes definitely had an agenda. While not every game shown is coming to the Epic Games Store (a sponsor for the event) a lot of them are, showing you just how quickly the new store is gobbling into the competition. Beyond games we got also ads for PC gaming gear like premium gamer chairs and Samsung’s curved 240Hz G-Sync gaming monitor.But the heart of the show was just the tons of cool little games revealed for the first time that are now instantly on my radar. Maneater is an open-world RPG about playing as a shark. Griftlands (great name) is a new deckbuilding roguelike from Klei. That chibi Conan Chop Chop April Fools joke is a real game now. Planet Zoo has you caring from animals in the stars. Telling Lies is shaping up to be an excellent Her Story follow-up. Auto Chess is the hot new mod of Dota, itself already a mod. Starmancer is sci-fi Dwarf Fortress, which should excite anyone who already knows what that all means.Per Aspera has you terraforming Mars for humanity. Chivalry 2 has more medieval melee combat. Evil Genius 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the super villain simulator. Zombie Army 4: Dear War is pretty self-explanatory. Cris Tales, Valfaris, Genesis Noir, and Mosaic are gorgeous-looking JRPG homages, 2D shoot ‘em ups, stylish adventures, and contemporary social thrillers, respectively. And those are only the games we can remember!So throw out your consoles. If the PC Gaming Show is anything to go by, a good rig is all you need for nonstop fun and varied gaming experiences. Although let’s be real a lot of these games will also randomly show up on Nintendo Switch.
