[Let’s Talk] What are you playing? – January 2023
Posted on January 7, 2023 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk
A new month (and a new year!) started up this week. Now that we’re in January, we want to know what you’ve been playing.
While game releases have slowed down overall, there’s still a ton to play. We saw a bunch of new indie games come out at the end of December, including Sports Story. Now’s also not a bad time to catch up on your backlog. No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.
Actually, it’d be nice to see some of Nintendo’s smaller IPs start to fill up the Switch scene. Like Rhythm Heaven/Fever, Style Savvy/Boutique, Dillon’s Rolling Western, Steel Diver, Pushmo, Tank Troopers, Ever Oasis, Nintendo Remix.
Yeah, basically 3DS games for the Switch.
Metroid Prime 4. I want news from the game that isn’t a PNG logo or articles about people joining the development team or not showing progress for the past 5 1/2 years. I don’t care whether it comes out or get’s cancelled at this point, I just want closure so that I can move on.
From Nintendo I already got 3 games to look forward to (Zelda TotK, FE Engaged and Pikmin 4), plus what they have yet to announce.
From MS I hope Starfield, Redfall and Forza come out this year, that GamePass keeps going strong, that the stick if showing games coming out within a year at E3, and that the Activision Blizzard King soap opera ends.
From Sony… I just hope they finally announce a new game since they didn’t do it in 2022 (a remake or remaster is not a new game) and hopefully that they show more respect towards their consumers.
Overall, I hope it’s the last year’s we crossgen games so that PS5/Series can stand on their own two legs. I hope we get games polished at launch and not hot messes. And, finally that the games earn the prices they are asking of us.
Happy 2023, y’all! And happy gaming!!
From Nintendo I’d like to see some good 3D platformers.
From others I’d like to see some good 3D platformers releasing on Switch.
A physical release for Tinykin too.
And ports of the other Dark Souls games from Bandai Namco.
