Chris Redfield is going to star in the next Resident Evil 7 DLC. I don’t know how! ‘Cause I didn’t read the specifics! Cause! I haven’t come close to beating the game yet. But! Nice! However, I did cross my eyes and cut and paste the explanation, so it lies within. You’re welcome.
Irrational Games and Ken Levine, whose last great game came in 2007 (#shotsfired), has announced that they’ve rebranded themselves as Ghost Story Games. Here’s hoping they churn out something less turd-soaked than BioShock Infinite. An occasionally fun, deeply pretentious, mess of a game.
The Nintendo Switch is hitting without a Virtual Console. This doesn’t really bother me, rather it raises questions about how quickly the company is rushing the console out the door. Which also really doesn’t bother me, because I’m not getting it at launch.
Nintendo Switch is totally getting a GameCube virtual console, huh? I mean, when you have top execs from Nintendo throwing flowers at the idea, it certainly feels inevitable.
Call of Duty is doing what Battlefield did last year, folks. It’s eschewing the science-fiction, jet-pack madness for more traditional combat. Returning the series to its roots, if you will. I’m down! I’m down for it. I mean, fuck, I enjoyed the science-fiction interpretation, but I think we’re all ready to strip the series back down.
I’m excited for Destiny 2. The original was rocky out of the gate, but Bungie has more than found their footing since then. So a full, dedicated installment to learn all their lessons from developing the first? Nice.
Nintendo, in what feels like a departure to at least me, is using the Unreal Engine with Switch.
The PlayStation 4’s 4.50 firmware update is bringing the fucking fire! Specifically, for me, it’s bringing a “Boost” Mode that is going to give pre-Pro titles more processing juice to play with. Frame rate enhancement get! The update is also bringing a litany of other dope things. Finally, finally a fucking firmware update I’m excited for.
Console gaming is dead! Or, a stern nah, it ain’t. PlayStation 4 just had its best three months. Ever. Sony ain’t fucking around this generation.
