Weekly Digest #0

All the nonsense I didn't make into a video, tweet, or blog post. Delivered Every Sunday because you and I both need something to de stress us before leveling up for the next week.

🕹️ The Console War Rages On

  1. Nintendo continues to be Nintendo as they shoot down another one of Bloomberg's Report about the rumored 4K Switch. I forgot Zynga still existed honestly. (Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-09-29/nintendo-switch-4k-developers-make-games-for-nonexistent-console)
  2. Scarlett Nexus has been stated to release on Xbox Game Pass. I played this game and it was really good. Review coming in the following weeks. (Source: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-09-30-scarlet-nexus-coming-to-xbox-game-pass-today)

🎮 Where's My Controller?

  1. I completely forgot to renew my Final Fantasy XIV Subscription.
  2. I've decided to give the Tales Of Alieter Series a shot. It was on sale on the Switch and I decided to pick up a copy. It seems different than other JRPGs I've played.
  3. Eastward came out a few weeks ago, and though I picked it up, I haven't played it.
  4. The 2.5D Racing Game I previewed a while back recently got a pretty huge update. Not only does the graphics look much better, but more content has been added to its demo. I'll be doing a preview video for this next week. (Source: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1594060/Victory_Heat_Rally/)

📝I don't know what a pen looks like.

  1. I walked though a few of my older reviews. I have reviews in progress for Astral Chain, River City Girls, and Destroy All Humans. A couple of em were pretty far along, but I haven't written much on these in a long time.
  2. I have a couple pieces about SimCity 2013 that I'll be compiling into a longer analysis on the success and failures of SimCity 2013 as it relates to the Sims franchise and what it meant for the video game industry.
