Love the artwork in the trailer, but I don't think Souls-likes are for me. I've tried DS a few times now, can't even get past the first boss.
I don't know if I ever made it to the first boss before I quit.
One thing that particularly perturbed me was I'm playing along and someone else hops into my game. That's not what I wanted in my sp game so i disconnected from the internet and continued on ... until i quit

So nevermind getting the core mechanics right, lets just show more game modes?

CoD and BF are effectively the same dish cooked by different restaurants, why shouldn't they inspire each other? There's nothing wrong with being inspired from good game mechanics, which there are a few in CoD Warzone. In fact I often wonder why games take steps backwards when well established features from a previous generation of games are removed in a sequel or new competitor. The accumulation of well regarded features and game mechanics is how you keep a games moving forward - I'm not talking about bloat, (I'm looking at you warframe) but little things like hit confirmation markers or being able to scale fences and walls of a certain height.
I actually found myself missing the lean/cover/mounting system from CoD Warzone.
Cod Warzone has no destruction. How is 2042 building and environmental/world destruction?? Is it more like Battlefield 4 or BC 2 or Battlefield V (essentially none)?

Severance. Best souls game ever before there were even souls games. Souls games should be referrer to as Blades games or something xD

The problem isn't that we spend too much on defense. Currently we spend less than half of what we did as a % of GDP than we did during the Cold War. Rather, the problem is taxation.
First we need better enforcement.
The wealthiest 1% of Americans dodge $163 billion in taxes every year, Treasury says
And we need a lot more corporate taxes.
As a share of GDP, the US has the lowest corporate taxes of the G7 nations.

Some of the dialogue from the trailer makes it sound like a sequel but the overall impression I got was remake.
Sequel is a closer description I think. They acknowledge the previous stuff happening.
Not a widely know fact is that the official canon story continued after the 3rd film in the form of the online MMO's storyline. Taken in this context, my best guess is that it's either one of those 3 options:
A: The long term effects of the continued in-Matrix war between the blue pillers ( those who wanted to stay inside and defend the Matrix despite knowing it was a deceit ) and the red pillers ( those who wanted to free people from the Matrix ), with the out-of-Matrix truce between the Machines and Zion still in effect many years down the road, so many that a new Neo and Trinity had time to emerge.
B: The war has been over for a long time, the truce failed as the Architect predicted it would and the Oracle undoubtlessly feared as reflected in the ending of the 3rd Matrix movie and the Matrix has been reset to "factory settings" for a new cycle. A new Neo and Trinity then emerged as they always do.
C: Something entirely new that Lana Wachowski thought up in the meantime and wanted to fool around with.
I'm hoping it's option A, the others would be kind of disappointing as far as I'm concerned.

I know they would have copped a lot of flak had they changed the game too much, so as a graphics and compatibility upgrade for an old game they 100% reached their goal, and then some, but it's the gameplay and feel that is just as out-of-date as the graphics, and I just couldn't get into it.
Diablo 3 runs on ultrawide just fine. As long as Diablo 4 does as well, I’m fine. I’m not buying this anyway; I tried it and didn’t feel any spark.

I remember LAN gaming with my brothers and we'd alternate between marine, alien and predator, and it was a huge amount of fun. It had so much atmosphere. AVP2 was decent enough but I didn't like the movement of the aliens anywhere near as much.
i really would love a full 2023 remake of Aliens Versus Predator 2. Game was sooo good.
