The pages of Tuesday’s letter are surprised that EA has changed its mind about single-player games.

Sonic Frontier’s launch is imminent, but I can’t imagine it breaking the market. Sonic the hedgehog cycle. I’ve seen developers say it’s not like Breath of the Wild from Zelda. So backtracking a few days before release is a bit worrying.
I’m against takeovers in general, but I hope someone buys both Sega And Konami (yes, I know Sega is owned by another company and Konami makes a lot of money with Jim or something). Both are sitting on a pile of great retro games and characters and doing nothing at all.
Who would be willing to bet that Nintendo could create a great Sonic game on its first attempt if it acquired Sega?
I know that won’t happen, but I feel like it’s our only hope at the moment. We’ll get back to you soon on what to expect.
Two unlikely options
am i the only one who didn’t think about it metal gear solid 3 remake story Makes sense? Was it someone hacking their own YouTube channel and it was something I had never heard of before, or did someone else upload a tech demo they made and it turned out to be a teaser for their game? Pretending to be? Both sound unlikely.
However, I have to say that I’m leaning a bit towards not being a hack. I think this developer I’ve never heard of did their own marketing and completely screwed it up and removed it all when they noticed. So… I guess we’ll see some announcements at The Game Awards?
I still wish Castlevania was revamped, but they’re doing this all backwards. Also, why Metal Gear Solid 3? why not start from scratch?
GC: We didn’t understand it either.
one by one
So one of the big mysteries in gaming at the moment is why Sony hasn’t announced anything new in years, and what exactly are we waiting for? Of course, we don’t know the answer to that, but as an example, it’s now blatantly clear that they’re working on a new Uncharted.
So why didn’t Sony announce it by the time the movie came out? Or at least when it hit streaming? Again, I don’t know the answer, but I think the most important question is: are we going to announce all the unknown games at once, or one at a time?
Given how many there must be at this point, you might think they’re building up for a massive explosion, but that doesn’t seem to be the current publisher fad. I think there are two, maybe some smaller ones in the next State of Play. It’s likely to be a big announcement at The Game Awards, which will continue for the next few months.

It’s interesting to see EA looking to expand beyond just a FIFA company (or EA Sports FC next year). I’m not sure why they changed their minds about single player games. All I saw was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but I didn’t expect it to be that big. Anyway, I enjoyed it and it seems to have woken up someone at EA. I’m here.
If all three of these Marvel games are primarily single-player, that’s certainly a turnaround for the company, and hopefully other companies will follow suit. Great single-player games always sell as long as they’re released at the right time of the year and aren’t too competitive. Multiplayer games have so many hurdles that they can never find an audience.
I think it says a lot that, traditionally, publishers make all-or-nothing bets instead of low-risk, medium-reward bets.
Anyway, I’m curious to see what the third game will be. It’s the Fantastic Four, and previous rumors that it was Amy Hennig’s new game make me wonder if their wires were crossed at some point.
mini open break
I get open world fatigue pretty often and take a break from them. . I really enjoyed exploring downtown Seattle in The Last Of Us Part 2 and the mini open world section of Metro Exodus.
The latest is A Plague Tale: Requiem, which has islands to explore and is probably my favorite part of the game, and I wish the game had more environmental puzzles. I can’t think of any other game in my head, albeit with this kind of section.
Over the weekend, I completed a Game Pass game called Tinykin. For those who don’t know, it looks like a Pikmin clone from your screenshots, but it’s more of a 3D platformer/collecting game. You play as a small child scaled down to miniatures. Honey I Shrink the Kids Style. You have to explore huge levels, which are rooms in a house, and collect objects to solve puzzles. The platforming mechanics felt a little strange at first, but after about 10 minutes of playing, it quickly clicked.
This is a game that I highly recommend to fans of 3D platformers looking for a great chilled game to play as it doesn’t have many ways to challenge it. Finding all Tinykin creatures, completing puzzles, and collecting pollen shards is extremely difficult. The only frustration I had was having to wait for Tinkykin to move objects around in the level.
Considerable distances had to be covered, which sometimes took a long time. Not a Game of the Year contender for me, as I’ve seen some people say so, but it’s definitely worth playing, and he’s only 6-7 hours long. It is. This was also the first full game I played with Steam Deck via Xbox Cloud Gaming and it worked really well.
Now Playing: Grid Legends (PS5) and Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters (PC)

Dear Gaming Gods, I never asked for Inbox Magic. so farRealize this.
I am very sad to hear that Reiko Kodama passed away at such a young age. Could it be cancer? I’m so surprised Sega stayed in the news for so long. Was she under the assumption that there were no Western fans of her work?
It’s really been a long time since we’ve gotten at least the Skies Of Arcadia port to Switch, if not the new console. I know you can.
Sega is really bad when it comes to preserving their legacy.Konami is mostly bad.
I know I can only speak for myself, but I would have bought it yesterday.
GC: They didn’t say why she died.
Run Inbox too
I understand it’s a busy time (it’s only going to get busier), but any chance of a Star Ocean or Victoria 3 review?
GC: Star Ocean should be there soon, probably even today. However, I’ll have to check for the Victoria 3.
It’s probably too late for Halloween (unless it pops up before you receive it), but would you like to review Saturnalia? I definitely want to pay a relatively low asking price!

GC: this is it’s never too lateExcept for the case of
hot topic of the week
This weekend’s Inbox theme was inspired by our readers, Rackam. Rackam is the oldest video game hardware you still use?
Most retro games are relatively easy to play on at least some modern devices. How long have you been using it and is it still working as well as it did in the original state?
Do you want to play your old games on the original hardware, or do you want to play everything on the same machine? If you’re simply using an older generation console, why haven’t you upgraded yet? Thinking of upgrading?
