Yesterday, Sucker Punch revealed a cool 18 minutes game of Tsushima I was very impressed with it. This is what we gamers want, actual gameplay that gives us an insight as to what we can expect when we spent that €60 on it! Microsoft and lear a thing or two from how Sony does things!
I hate to be that guy but The Last Of Us 2 was originally delayed indefinitely for a reason. Prior to all of this, a part of me took it as them wanting to polish the game further. Yeah, we had the Covid-19 pandemic, but most game dev delayed their game for a month to two months at least, I don’t recall anyone indefinitely delaying their game indefinitely because of the pandemic. After the leak to place, next thing you know, it turns gold. Doesn’t that strike you as odd?
So it looks like we’re getting yet another souls-like game (we should really come up with a genre name for these types of games) called Mortal Shells.
So, there’s talk on the…actually I won’t lie, I saw this tweet from Chris Kohler, Feature Editor at Kotaku that made the claim that Final Fantasy 7’s boss “the Scorpion” was too challenging to deal with. I poked fun at it on Twitter but afterwards I started thinking about it more and realized that we may see an influx of this sentiment from people within the gaming industry.
So, outta nowhere, Square Enix decided to drop the demo fro Final Fantasy 7 remake and well, I have to say it’s a lot of fun.
Kindred Fates is an open-world monster battling RPG, and a love letter to the monster battle genre. While many see this game as Pokemon-inspired, my cultured eyes see an inspiration more akin to Digimon.
Word on the street has it that CD Project is planning on implementing what they’ve described to be a “wise monetization” strategy for Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer. This of course has raised the eyebrows of many gamers who obviously remember all the claims made by CD Projekt Red in terms of not participating is such business practices. Not to mention our sour history of other gaming companies unethical practices of such things. To my understanding, it seems that CD Projekt Red only spoke for the single player component of the game being monetization free, leaving the multiplayer portion up for debate.
One of the trends that I’ve noticed with games in recent months is the practices of releasing a game, wait for the reviews to come in and then completely pull a 180 that pisses off gamers by adding a feature they knew was frowned upon by the community. Call of Duty Modern Warfare is the latest example of that possible practice.
It’s been a long, and I mean, A LONG ASS TIME since I’ve been interested in a Need for Speed game, but this new installment, Need for Speed: Heat might actually be some…heat!
