[Let’s Talk] What are you playing? – December 2021
Posted on December 4, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk
A new month rolled right on this week. Now that we’re in December, we want to know what you’ve been playing.
We’ve seen a number of big releases over the past month or so, including Pokemon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl, Shin Megami Tensei V, Blue Reflection: Second Light, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Death’s Door. There have even been things like the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC and Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda.
So what have you been playing as of late? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.
Highlights from last week’s topic: The Game Awards 2021 hopes and dreams
Nintendo doesn’t have much presence at the awards, but I can see them making a few announcements.
I think the big N will have a Splatoon 3 teaser to start ramping up excitement for the game, since it’ll probably launch in the Spring/Summer like past entries. Sega might also do the same with Sonic Frontiers since they’ve been radio silent on the game. Other than that, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is in a similar situation, and could also do with a signal boost.
I’m going to be bold and take a big guess: At the game awards, to celebrate Metroid Dread at least getting nominated, they show a full trailer for Metroid Prime 4, with real gameplay. Otherwise, the rest s anyone’s guess.
Metroid Dread winning GotY is a long shot, but it would be amazing if it did, though I think RE Village will win.
But all I’m really watching the VGA for are the trailers and reveals.
When it comes to Nintendo, something Zelda or Mario related is always a safe bet, but Metroid Prime 4 is the only in development game that we haven’t seen any on, so that’s my pick for “dreams”, and I “hope” The actual awards part of the show doesn’t drag on like it normally does, I hate those those “interview” segments that they do.
The one dream I have would be an announcement for a sequel to Astral Chain.
Seems like the right place for that.
I’d love a short trailer and a title for the sequel to Breath of the Wild, doesn’t seem out of question.
Maybe something Metroid, it seems like the year for that and there’s some hype around. I doubt Dread has any chance for GOTY, but it’s cool they noticed it at all.
And of course I thank all the writers and journalists who will report on that stuff so I don’t have to watch that joke of a “ceremony” myself.
