Naruto comes to Fortnite, Sony gets a massive wake up call as PlayStation is Hacked, Twitch comes to Nintendo Switch and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl leaks early.
🕹️ The Console War Rages On
- Shin Megami Tensi V Releases. It had a surprising well response from gamers.
- Naruto x Fortnite set to release on November 16th, 2021. (Source)
- Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl leaks early. Gamers have begun picking apart the game's source code to see what changes where made. There is still the possibility of a Day 1 patch from Nintendo and The Pokemon Company (Source)
- Nintendo has detailed the Day One patch for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. It has a ton of stuff that is included in the Day one patch more so than most people would expect. It seems to a lot of content was kept back for the Day one patch, just in case it leaked - I guess. (Source)
- Steam has delayed the Steam Deck by two months. Most likely due to ongoing shortages and shipping issues currently being felt world wide. (Source)
- Twitch has been added to Nintendo Switch. About time honestly. (Source)
- PlayStation 5 has been hacked. Two mainstays of the console hacking community have managed to access both the PS5 Debug settings and extracted console keys from the the PS5 code. While this is very early to even begin thinking about emulation, this is a step in that direction. (Source 1, Source 2)
✨ Going to Events Spiritually
- There wasn't much that happened this week.
🎮 Where's My Controller?
- I picked up Shin Megami Tensi V, its been going well so far. Its been officially added to my backlog. (Not my review backlog, my play log)
- I am still continuing with Blue Reflection, as I want to play Blue Reflection: Second Light. I'm a little over half way done.
- I picked up AoEIV, and I've been enjoying the main campaigns, but I can't help feel like its a missed oppourtunity going back to the Age of Empires 2 campaigns, and not trying for something a bit modern. However, there are more that I still have to play.
🎵 Turn it up to 11!
- Have you heard the entire OST for Thunder Force IV? Honestly one of the best old school sound tracks. I have two favourite tracks, but I think you'll enjoy this one: "Thunder Force IV OST 09 - Attack Sharply". (YouTube)
📝I don't know what a pen looks like.
- The article draft for River City Girls review has been completed. It will go up this week. I have to convert it to a script.
- The Cyberpunk article hasn't started but I have my thoughts down. This won't be a review of the game itself, though I'll talk about the game play elements, I'll be focusing more on the story.
