During the big Xbox Games event today, Obsidian Entertainment announced the new Avowed.

This game is set in the same world as Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2.  It is looking like Obsidian's take on Bethesda's Elder Scrolls game.  Since their take on the Fallout Games (both Fallout: New Vegas and Outer Worlds) were better than Bethesda's latest entries in Fallout, here's hoping they have a good go at beating them on Skyrim.

This and Everwild were the games that caught my attention the most during the showcase. That magic animation was NEAT

In both.  Everwild evoked a dance and music sort of magic and Avowed seemed to be a cross between Skyrim and Dr. Strange.

The magic seal on the arm looks sick! But I have yet to wait for a game that capitalizes on magic and lore. It's a dream for me as an author to establish a hard magic system in the likes of Wheel of Time or Mistborne.

We're so damn lucky we get to make it in an era where we get to play games in highly competent graphics that even our own imagination couldn't handle as kids! Press F for our fallen gamers who didn't make it. May they respawn soon.

The nice thing with Avowed on magic systems, at least, is that they have to pretty sizble games already out there. (Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2).  This going to be a game world with a lot of lore.  While, I've spent countless hours in the Baldur's Gate-style games, I've had a harder time returning to it and staying focused.  Not a knock on Pillars at all, as it is more of a time thing.  I will be completing both Pillars games though before Avowed comes out, so I have a deeper appreciation for the world I'll be playing in.

Not familiar with these games though. I really tend to stick with the mainstream games before. Since I didn't have great control over my gaming habits during my teenage years, I deliberately chose not buy any console games or a gaming PC. (It's for my sake as well as the electric bill, LOL).

The game that got me really pulled into RPGs was Kingdom Hearts. And I'm still aching to play the latest game. 🤪

      I always love playing video games that offer the player the ability to make their own decisions like the customization of their character’s appearance and skills. I especially love it when that choosability extends to romancing different characters. The best example I can think of right now is the video-game series called Mass Effect. I loved romancing Kaiden Alenko during the third game, and a fun fact is the face model for this character is an openly gay man. It’s a shame the player couldn’t romance him in the first game of trilogy if they played as a male Shepard. Rumors have been spreading that a remastered version of the trilogy is in the works. If that’s true, I hope they allow male Shepard to romance Kaiden at the very beginning because there is direct evidence that shows Kaiden and another character Ashley Williams could’ve been romanced regardless of Shepard’s gender.
      I’m really looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077 when it’s released on November. From what I watched and read, the game will allow players to romance characters of the same gender. You’re even allowed to choose who your character hookups with at the beginning of the game haha. I’m in desperate need for a video game that allows the player to have an in-depth, gay romance since other games that have this feature that I’ve played didn’t satisfy my romantic itch. Mass Effect as well as the Dragon Age series are great examples of romance done right, with other games like Fallout 4 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey feeling like it was more of an afterthought than an integral part of the game.
      Do you know of any video-game romances that you remembered and loved, particularly in the LGBT department?

      So one of Microsoft's oldest living franchise, Microsoft Flight Simulator, released a new version today.  And can I just say... whoa.
      When I save I live in NY, people always assume this:

      But the city is small rancid pimple on the State of New York.  Here's a shot, from 6600 feet up, about halfway between home and where I went to school.

      So much farm country.  And that huge body of water on the top of the picture is Lake Ontario.  The visuals in this game (at this distance) are crazy insane.  They don't look as good when you try to zoom.. but for flight... it looks like you are looking out of  plane window.
      It's included in Game Pass.  Game Pass is $1 for 30 days to try out.  Just saying.

      I'm definitely liking the interaction between the characters.
      And I know Rocksteady has been doing great with games. (Batman Arkham series)

      This trailer looks interesting.
      The gameplay looks pretty nice.  They didn't tag platforms on this, which is a bit suspicious.  They better not make it exclusive somewhere...

      Wow!  This is coming to all systems in 2021.
