One other weird week of 2022 within the bag. I’m not saying this has been a foul 12 months, however oof, it’s been the most. What occurred this week? Goodness gracious. A hacker acquired maintain of footage of Rockstar’s in-development recreation and printed it on-line. Logitech is making a Steam Deck competitor. And apparently it’s time to revisit Cyberpunk 2077? Like I stated, weird week.
The GTA VI leak was a doozy by itself, however I used to be a bit disheartened to see how crucial everybody was of it. In case you wanted to listen to it from me: There’s (most likely) nothing improper with Grand Theft Auto VI, primarily based on the footage. Video games don’t appear like video games till just about launch time. That’s why recreation publishers pay third-party filmmakers to make cinematic trailers for video games in improvement. I’d be a hypocrite if I dissed pre-launch speculative criticism, however I don’t need anybody to write down GTA VI off as a result of they noticed a model of it they had been by no means supposed to see.
The opposite stuff that occurred this week feels virtually fluffy and lightweight by comparability. Logitech’s handheld looks as if it might need some good guts, and it’ll run Recreation Move and GeForce Now proper out of the field. Additionally, it appears the Cyberpunk Netflix promoting blitz labored, as 1000’s of gamers are both returning to the sport or making an attempt it for the primary time. I maintain listening to that it’s good now, however since my points with the sport weren’t solely with the bugs and glitches, I’m not keen to speculate any extra time in it.
In private information, I’m going to spend your entire weekend taking part in the early entry model of Slime Rancher 2. I’ve been ready for this jiggly, candy-bright sim recreation because it was introduced final 12 months. I say with no disgrace that I put a whole lot of hours into the unique, and I need to escape to its less complicated world once more. If anybody wants me, I might be vacuuming up glad, smiling jelly creatures and harvesting their droppings for money.
