Uncertain year
Thanks for all the content of the Christmas and New Year GC. Given the situation, I hope you and all your readers have good content. I wasn’t sure what would come out next year / this year, so I was particularly interested in the 2021 preview. But to be honest, I still don’t know what’s going on. As you said, many of these games will be delayed many times, and perhaps most publishers will have no idea how things will eventually rock.

However, looking at the list, the most popular ones seem to be Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Resident Evil Village, Gotham Knights, and Hogwarts Legacy. Halo Infinite, Gran Turismo 7, Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 is similar, but all three have delays written from the beginning.

So what does that mean for 2021? Will we see more games or fewer games than last year? Probably about the same, but I’m sure that everything that started in the last nine months isn’t super fast, so it’s big when everything that was produced before the coronavirus is finished and finished. I have a problem.

Celebration game
I was recently lent a copy of The Last Of Us Part 2 by the principal of the school I work for and enjoyed it during the festival.

As someone who has been playing video games for many years, it does something I’ve found that all great games do, it makes me think about the game even if I’m not playing it. Movies and TV are mostly on one side so far because I’m so invested in games and want to see them before doing anything else.

The criticism leveled in the game is that combat doesn’t have as subtle nuances as storytelling, which made me think about setting difficulty in both the game and the general public. I’ve played The Last Of Us Part 2 on Survivor Difficulty, but I value the level design and enemy artificial intelligence much higher than lower difficulty because it’s impossible to just blow up the level. I was able to do.

I feel the same for uncharted games on the mainline, which are all completed on crash difficulty. All of these turned out to be fascinating tasks that required careful thinking and strategy in this difficulty setting.

The experience of playing The Last Of Us 2 on Survivor difficulty is sometimes incredibly tense and reminds me of my favorite game of all time, Resident Evil 4. I thought this could be an interesting hot topic. What difficulty setting do you usually play a game with and change the difficulty level to make which game feel like a completely different experience?

I’ve just read the article on generational games and was surprised to see The Last Of Us Part 2 omitted, but your goal is not to have multiple similar games, but as many different types as possible. I thought it was to include the game of. For example, I have Uncharted 4, but I don’t have The Last of Us 2, but I have Bloodborne, but I don’t have Dark Souls 3.

Thanks to GC and all the readers who contributed the article during the festival. I read great books every day and always seek mature and diverse opinions.

GC: It was always my second favorite game last year, so it was always difficult to make it into the top 20 of the generation.

Flat circle
Happy New Year to GC and all its readers and contributors. This is 2021! Hope you all had a good time during Christmas and enjoyed a lot of game time? Your feature / game articles during the Crimbo celebration were also highly appreciated GC, thank you! (Also, it was really nice to see the opening of PlayStation 5s in the Zoom / Facetime video of my family and friends. I saw my grandchildren and friends’ kids opening a new console on a big day and they A clue I was going to get it!)

To be fair, can’t I really see this year getting so big in the game news compared to last year? What if no new console has been released (except Playdate) and no one follows the mistakes of CD Projekt Red this year?

My biggest surprise during the holiday season was playing Super Star Wars on PlayStation 4. I was able to buy it at PSN for half the price of £ 3.99. The game was originally released on the 16-bit SNES in 1992, so I didn’t know how time would pass. I had it at that time, but nothing has changed. This 2015 port is still solid. (We have prepared some cheats from YouTube!)

Given the age of over 28 years, we really need to understand what Lucasarts achieved at the time. It was the most advanced at the time. Flying the X-Wing over the Death Star, Luke’s Landspeeder over Tatooine, and towards the Mode 7 Sandcrawler, the score was like returning to the cinema. Also. I completely forgot that the original publisher was JVC. How have the times changed?

GC: Learning from the mistakes of the past is not the strength of most video game companies. There is no guarantee that Cyberpunk 2077 will change anything.

Second chance
That is, 2020 and 2020 Part 2: The blockade counterattack ends. This isn’t the place to complain about the wider issues of the world, but obviously this isn’t all suitable for video games either. Games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Avengers are almost over before the coronavirus and are still a nightmare at launch, so now everyone has to create them while working from home. Imagine a game like that.

I’m predicting more delays, more bugs, and perhaps fewer games overall. Conversely, we hope to increase the chances that older games, such as Among Us, that were overlooked when they first appeared will be in the limelight again. I don’t know what that will be (for some reason, I don’t think this will be a great opportunity for Nioh’s great success), but among us, a “new” game comes out without actually coming out new. It proves that it may come.

Corps of complaints
I have to give up on Christmas and admit that I played Watch Dogs Legion. I know the game isn’t very impressive, but I really like Watch Dogs 2 and I think it’s okay because the London setting will be a place I once knew, not another American city. I did.

Needless to say, the Ubisoft version of London isn’t real. It may look like that, but I feel like I’m trying to recreate British culture just by having a vague explanation rather than actually experiencing it.

But what really upset me was that the game wasn’t played as much as the second game. Hacking is stunning, there aren’t really any suitable puzzles, and nothing requires real effort or thought to defeat. Watch Dogs 2 was a really good game with a decent story and real characters, rather than the randomized stats passed in Legion. It’s a real step down in my opinion, and probably the end of the series.

Like a game
I ended up seeing the whole Mandalorian at Christmas, and now I understand why people are said to be so perfect in turning it into a game. Especially in the second season, it is organized exactly like a video game. Visit here to get this game, run someone’s fetch quest and get vague clues about where to go next. I’ve never seen a movie / TV show influenced by video games since the badly underrated Edge of Tomorrow.

I’m sure everyone is imagining a big big budget game. That’s great, but ironically, it’s kind of like an ori, but it’s perfect for a fairly low-tech Metroidvania with a different visual style.

It was also great to see so many references to Star Wars stuff that only exists in the game, from the Easter eggs of the Clear Dragon to the cutscenes of the Dark Force that are part of the documentary! I really liked Fallen Order and Squadrons, so I hope EA can take advantage of this unexpected Star Wars renaissance.

Cross generation sound
Can anyone recommend a good headset that works on both PlayStation 4 and 5? My PlayStation 4 headset broke and I don’t own a PlayStation 5 yet, but I would like to get a headset that I can use when I do.

GC: The Turtle Beach Stealth line turned out to be suitable for generational use, but it doesn’t seem to be in stock at this time.

Mobile extra
After freeing up a lot of space from my phone, I was able to download and update Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, which I didn’t actually play (for strange reasons, to reach the Hong Kong Play Store. It took almost 3 years).

Given that the mobile version is free to play, I have to say that it contains a surprising amount of content. Indeed, there are regular freemium metaphors such as waiting (or paying) for unlocking, and multiple ways to encourage you to spend real money.

However, there are some things that you really need to add in your mainline game. These are in the mobile version.

1. Full (optional) touch screen control. The switch allows you to use the touch screen only for entering text, but imagine the efficiency of the touch screen when playing in handheld mode.

2. Appropriate sense of progress. There are special daily goals, character leveling, and non-player character leveling that make the mainline game more structured.

3. Flexible inventory. You can hold far more items, fish, etc. before it fills up. In that case, the item will be sold immediately, without worrying that the Nook shop is open.

4. A random player will appear. You can set prices by exchanging gifts or buying and selling things at virtual stalls.

We hope Nintendo will incorporate these into the New Horizons update. After all, we paid the full amount for it!

Also run inbox
Are you wondering if you played Hivebusters? In fact, I thought it was a lot better than Gears 5. It was even more impressive because I could beat it in about 3 hours.

GC: DLC? No, I’ve heard good things, but I didn’t have a chance.

I have to ask this every year, but when do the top 20 readers run in their inbox? This is one of my favorite parts of GC and I don’t want to miss it.

GC: As always, it will be the last week of January.

This week’s hot topic
As the first hot topic of the new year, the choice of inbox subject for this weekend is very clear. Which game are you most looking forward to in 2021?

If you’re not sure what’s coming out, you can find a list of upcoming titles in the 2021 preview. You can suggest other games, but only if you have a good reason to expect them to be released this year (and therefore no halves). -Life 3 or Elder Scrolls 6).

Why are you so excited about your pick and think it will be a big hit? What other video game releases and events are you looking forward to in 2021? Do you think this year will be a good year for the whole game?
