I’m that kind of videogame person that’s used to expecting exciting things showing off in a global event like Summer Game Fest 2023. However, when this didn’t happen I feel like betrayed. Am I saying that last night SGF was one of the dullest show I’ve seen in the last four years? Yes, that’s right.

Obviousily, Lies of P is based on Pinocchio fairy tail.
Secondly, Alan Wake II revelead a short yet intense gameplay trailer where Saga, Alan Wake II’s second main character, who was coming through a scary investigation in a wood…
