Immortal: Phoenix Rising might be the highlight for me tonight. What a gorgeous looking game.
Still most looking forward to Watch Dogs Legion, although I feel like they've been covering the same base concept (that of recruiting any NPC you find around London) ever since it was revealed and not a whole lot else.
- Scott Pilgrim is my second favourite beat em up, only recently surpassed by River City Girls. I still have it installed on my PS3 so I wasn't in the situation of many of being unable to even get hold of it anymore, but I am still jumping at the chance to play it again - especially as I never played the DLCs and can have it portably on Switch! - R6 Siege is my main online multiplayer game that I play with friends so it's great to get confirmation of a free upgrade on PS5. In general the ongoing support just continues to be excellent. - Riders Republic is absolutely a Steep sequel (you can see Steep assets everywhere in it) expanded to more than just winter extreme sports, and I absolutely loved Steep - I've played it for hundreds of hours. The vastly expanded multiplayer sounds great, especially with the downhill battle royale style elimination race thing. It definitely looks to be leaning into the chaotic side of Steep, which means I'll probably miss the slower, isolated, man-on-a-mountain peaceful side of that game, but I don't think it'll be lacking given everything else. That's day one for me. - I'm pretty excited for Watch Dogs Legion given the London setting, and the central character-swapping mechanic is still sounding very cool to me. I don't care about Aiden though having not played the previous games.

It's the same studio (Ubisoft Annecy) and the snowboarding/skiing/paragliding/wingsuiting/rocket suit all look identical to Steep, plus it has the same Red Bull and X Games collaboration. I think we may as well consider it a sequel in all but name.
