🕹ī¸ The Console War Rages On

  1. 'Wu-Tang Clan' Action-RPG is currently in development at Microsoft. This is actually a really solid idea. It will be great to see what the developers can do with the the hip-hop act especially since they will also be providing the soundtrack for the game. (Source)
  2. Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp has been delayed from its December 3rd, 2021 release date to Spring 2022. Nintendo says its to add additional polish to the game. I fully endorse and support this. I am huge fan of Advance Wars and I hope they take their time to make a really great solid game. (Source)
  3. Age of Empires IV launched this week. (Steam)
  4. Two Lara Croft Games are coming to the Nintendo Switch, 2010's Guardian of Light and 2014's Temple of Osiris. Both being developed by Feral Interactive. (Source)
  5. Pikmin Bloom, a Pokemon Go style app from Niantic + Nintendo.  (Source)

✨ Going to Events Spiritually

  1. Steam Halloween Sale is going on from 28th October, to the 1st November. There's a few decent deals to be had. I recommend BlazBlue Collection (Steam) and Terraria (Steam) - Not horror themed games, but I spent literally thousands of hours in Terraria, and I'm a big fan of BlazBlue & Guilty Gear.
  2. Facebook, Inc. changes its name to Meta, Inc. Because that's what was wrong with Facebook - its name. (Source)
  3. Blizzard will absorb Vicarious Visions (Developer of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2, developer on Diablo 2: Resurrected) into its own - most likely becoming an office of Blizzard. (Source)

🎮 Where's My Controller?

  1. Now that I've completed Metroid Dread, and Cyberpunk 2077, what should I play next? I am debating picking back up Yakuza 0, as I completed up to Chapter 4 earlier this year. However, I am considering playing Tales of Arise as well.
  2. I also tried speedrunning Metroid Dread, and I can't even get the first sequence break. So there's that.
  3. Still haven't decided what my next game will be.

đŸŽĩ Turn it up to 11!

  1. This Hibari theme from River City Girls always get me hyped! (YouTube)

📝I don't know what a pen looks like.

  1. I'm up to almost 5,000 words in my River City Girls review and I'm still not done. What a life!
  2. While I've been torn about what next I should play, I've been hard at work creating content for both YouTube and TikTok.
