Legendary Pressure
Now we know that the next Legend of Zelda will be called Tears of the Kingdom. Nintendo clearly had no interest in showing details about the game, just providing a name and release date. I’m sure there’s still a chance it’ll be postponed again, but if Nintendo hasn’t earned people’s trust so far, I don’t know what to say.

However, when the game reaches that date, it will be over six years since Breath of the Wild, and everyone assumed it was a Majora’s Mask-style sequel that reused most of its predecessor’s assets. What used to take a long time. Many of the worlds look the same, but it also looks like they’ve added a whole new floating world on top of it. Or at least that’s my interpretation of what we’re seeing.

It’s basically impossible to judge at this point, but if there’s a question of whether the game is worth the wait. Did you just add magical abilities to Breath of the Wild? I can’t believe it’s that simple, until I get more information.

If this is the longest gap between Zelda games, it will put even more pressure on a game that is already looking to follow up what many consider to be one of the greatest games ever. That being said, it’s hard to understand how anything works by then.

Sounds good
I wrote this early on, before Nintendo and Sony were arguably smashed during their respective streams, but my preferred reveal is a more in-depth look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, when Nintendo Revealing what’s planned for the next Mario game, Bluepoint Games will show you their next project (Bloodborne 2, please collaborate with FromSoftware). .

Of these four, I think Breath of the Wild 2 is probably the only one we’ll see, but it doesn’t give anything substantial in terms of how close it is to completion, so I’m assuming it will. It will be in the second half of next year. Feel free to mock my prediction GC when it was confirmed that he will be released on March 21st, coinciding with the release of PlayStation VR2. No doubt 19 other games will fail on the 21st as well. Because, as we know, companies have a habit of setting terrible release dates.

GC: Bluepoint and Bloodborne 2 were big hits, but none of these predictions were ridiculous. I’m surprised Astro Bot hasn’t been mentioned again recently.

Here are today’s Nintendo Direct predictions. Let’s see how many you can get right…

  • Metroid Prime Remastered (scheduled for late January 2023)
  • Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD Combo Pack (December 2022)
  • Advance Wars scheduled for February 2023
  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2’s official name has been announced (and everyone thinks it’s a nuff)
  • Hollow Knight: Silksong Shown in Summer ’23 Ambiguous Release
  • Splatoon 3 DLC details
  • All Smash Bros. DLC Passes added in expansion packs
  • New Donkey Kong game revealed

Was I close too?

GC: Hmmm…

affordable size
Needless to say, I couldn’t agree more Sandwick Recent Articles About the length of the game and the time it takes to make the game. If I wanted a game I could spend my life on for a month, I’d play a role-playing game, but why does it take him nearly 20 hours to complete a first-person shooter despite having no story? mosquito. I wrote that sentence thinking of Halo Infinite’s campaign, but even Doom Eternal is guilty of this.

But I’ve noticed a new trend in the platform genre where you can finish games quickly and buy cheaply. I love a good platformer so I hope this continues. , leading to a sequel. We’re not just talking about Crash Bandicoot 4.

Thanks to the remake of SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom, we’re getting a sequel in just two years! The price covers the bite-sized experience.

no sales
tired of looking Ubisoft raises game prices, basically ensuring that everyone else does the same. £70 for a new game is absurd and you’ll have trouble understanding who’s going to pay for it on day one.

Like it or not, moves like this will only push more people into the arms of Game Pass. It makes no sense to buy the game any other way. Not for me anyway. I can’t afford to pay him more than twice a year that kind of money. Especially for Ubisoft games.

Also, I agree 100% with those who think Skull and Bones doesn’t look good. The concept sounded boring and pointless when they announced it, and while it looked just like the first trailer, now the gameplay footage looks just as bad. , I was shocked to pay 70 pounds. I’m far from spending money, so I can’t tell you.

Cry Another Day
The announcement of GoldenEye 007 has been in the cards for years, with Microsoft and Nintendo sleeping together and the achievement name for the Xbox version being leaked and denied in constant leaks. You didn’t have to attend Her Majesty’s Secret Service to see this. one coming. But reading the press release, my heart sank. As such, the game is set to release on both Xbox and Switch, but only his Xbox version has a framerate boost, and online multiplayer is included only in his Switch version.

It seems that these will simply be emulated versions of the original. This could mean that there is no updated control scheme (along with frame rate improvements, the only thing I feel this game needs to be really well received by modern audiences is 1 ), no real graphical improvements. Accomplished in emulator only. This means that you can see all of your opponent’s screens while playing.

It’s probably not a big deal, but it was nice to see and I can’t imagine playing a handheld on the Switch looking at only a quarter of the screen. The fact is that you are not even allowed to own it and Nintendo can pull it out whenever they want. This is unprecedented in this digital age.

The puzzling part is that the full HD remake (remastered?) was almost finished, even though it wasn’t released during the Xbox 360 era. It is not clear who is responsible for this situation. Doesn’t Nintendo want the Switch version to look inferior to the Xbox version? Has there been some sort of rights issue from the Bond licensee that the game can be released as-is without editing? Is an ominous executive stroking a cat while he’s at it behind all this?

I actually played the original on the original hardware only a few years ago, and I’m still really happy that this was finally released in some form after the initial tweaking period was over. The game deserves to be better. All the details are yet to be confirmed, so they may be flying guns now, but the whole affair looks more like Johnny English than James Bond.

slow to change
Some people say Nintendo’s sequels aren’t groundbreaking, and Pikmin 2 and 3 were both prime examples of that. They’re good games, but the difference is in the Splatoon levels that are insignificant. It’s nice to know that Pikmin 4 seems to be trying something a little different.

I’m still not convinced it’s more than just slightly changed camera angles, but there are some attempts at least to avoid making the same game four times in a row.

quick flight
As someone who attended Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, I wasn’t sure how much the seemingly mundane experience would resonate with me, so I was pleasantly surprised at how engrossing and relaxing the whole event was. Even if played, say 30 minutes at a time. I enjoy spending time getting used to the more hands-on and esoteric mechanics of aviation simulation.

It can’t be overemphasized that even two years after its introduction, Microsoft Flight Simulation is still a stunningly impressive technical achievement, both visually and in terms of attention to detail. Since recently resuming my Game Pass subscription, I’ve been working on some more, and nothing surprises me how accurately some of the places in the world I’ve traveled are depicted here. Never. Being able to fly over the streets was an amazing accommodation.

I’m looking forward to new content being released later in the year, but I’d also like to enjoy the quirkier, arcade side of the series, like Forza Horizon in the Forza Motorsport series. Recent Hot Wheels DLC for Forza Horizon 5. Think Pilotwings-esque missions. Perhaps even a few After Burner/Ace Combat/Desert Strike nods. A fun and playful mode banquet to let your creativity shine. I think that will lead this series to new success!

Run Inbox too
Watched cartoons (Cuphead and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners) from games to Netflix. Cuphead feels too modern for what he’s supposed to be from the ’40s, so he could only do one. Cyberpunk is very anime and reminds me of Ghost in the Shell. I see it

GoldenEye 007 is coming to Switch and Xbox Game Pass! This is ridiculous, fantastic, brilliant, and spectacularly great news. great stuff.

hot topic of the week
This weekend’s inbox theme was suggested by reader Gooch, What’s your favorite fantasy video game?

For the sake of clarity, I mean anything with at least a vaguely Tolkien-esque feel, prevalent in low-fantasy settings such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, and thus not necessarily orcs or elves. No need to include it. that.

How appealing do you find this kind of fantasy setting to be? And does it influence the games you’re interested in, regardless of gameplay? What more do you think this concept can do? What next-gen fantasy game are you most looking forward to?
