A New Beginning I’m really hoping that Halo Infinite’s release date will be revealed today, since else, it’ll be pushed out until 2022. But, since there’s nothing to say about it, I’d like to remark that those eight minutes of Forza Horizon 5 were incredible.
Even though I’m not a huge fan of racing games – and will be much more interested when this technology is used to other types of games – the realism of the visuals and the quality of the open environment were astounding.
I’m not sure what the finest visuals are at the moment; I suppose it’s tough to tell during the transition to a new generation. But Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, perhaps? I found Forza Horizon 5 to be much more amazing than that, and I believe it will be a larger selling point than Halo this year, regardless of whether it is released or not. Korey
I am ecstatic. I had to write since I’m ecstatic because I just ordered a PlayStation 5 from Very this morning.
I’ve messed around a lot trying to acquire one of these consoles, and I’m overjoyed to finally be a part of the next generation.
With the console, I ordered Ratchet & Clank, Returnal, Sackboy, and Demon’s Souls, which should keep me occupied for a bit. According to the Stock Informer website, Very had them in stock for a long time before they ran out, so perhaps this is a hint that other shops will be receiving stock more frequently than they have been.
I sincerely hope the scalpers are stuck with stock they can’t sell because they’ve made it far more difficult for genuine gamers to get their hands on one of the new consoles. Mitchell
I’m a wizard So, what’s the deal with Quake?
I was a little disappointed since it was just a little resolution improvement and not a full-fledged update.
I tried it anyhow, simply to say I’d done it and maybe play a few levels for the sake of nostalgia. Ha! As expected, the first two of levels are old, eh? Still, it was a fantastic game back then, and I believe it needs to be kept alive.
So… Then why am I unable to put it down?
I’ve had a lot of fun with it so far, going through the main campaign and then the add-ons. So far, both original packs have been fantastic.
The fast-paced fighting and tactics remind me a lot of Doom 2016/Eternal, strangely enough! The speed, the mechanics, and the overall feel are all quite similar. That’s quite amazing achievement for such an ancient game.
I showed my kids the deathmatch, and despite their first squints at the sight of it, we had a great time running about with rocket launchers.
Even now, it’s a fantastic game. I’d be all for a full-fledged upgrade that made full advantage of today’s technology. Pugmartin

Streets Fighter is a fighting game set in the streets of Reading the letter about beat ’em ups and what can be done with them and their characters yesterday got me thinking of something I’ve wanted to see for a long time. It’s a wandering Street Fighter beat ’em up. The concept is that you play Ryu and travel the globe as he does in all of his narrative arcs, similar to Soulcaliber’s tale of souls and swords but with real places to visit – villages, cities, and the surrounding countryside.
There are people to meet and tasks to complete, all of which include a battle on a 2D plane, similar to a Street Fighter bout. Like a mini-boss, you might have new moves and old characters to encounter and fight. When you’re touring India, you know you’re going to run across Dhalsim, or in Ken and Guile’s case, North America. I’d want to meet ancient martial arts experts or ex-military guys who can help you practice your fireballs or Dragon Punch, and I’d like to Hadouken a cliff until it splits in two or Shoryuken a waterfall until the waters separate and all the beavers flee!
Hurricane is something I wish to do. I want to meet and beat Blanka in a rain forest, then have a coffee with him while we regain our health and have a little chit-chat. Oh, the beauty of the inbox. bent huge boy
There are no limits to the number of concessions that may be made. Unless Halo Infinite is announced differently on Wednesday, I believe Halo Infinite has been postponed. I’m not sure whether it’s because they don’t have enough time or because something is fundamentally wrong with the narrative campaign, but I’d be more concerned if it came out this year since I can only image the number of concessions, including bugs, that would be required.
At the very least, if they can get the multiplayer out this year, that’ll be something. I’d go with it and make sure the rest of the components are in order. We don’t need a Halo that’s broken or just plain awful. In recent years, we’ve had both, and it didn’t help the franchise at all.
Apart than that, I don’t think 343 will be able to survive this if things go wrong. It’s bad enough that they’re a second-rate Bungie, much alone a third-rate one. Iceman
Man, the game is done. Nice review of Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which was just as boring and useless as I had anticipated. I agree with you that, as much as I like it, Aliens is no longer relevant. Why have a game with only aliens in it, even if there are small changes, when you could create your own with far more significant distinctions amongst opponents, like you stated? For a publisher, there’s just no purpose, particularly since they have to pay for the license before they can begin.
I can only imagine that working in a survival horror film, which Alien Isolation showed can still work. That game had its flaws, but it was terrifying, something the xenomorph hasn’t been since Aliens.
You could create a more action-packed sequel and it would still be terrifying. Simply turn off the lights and restrict the ammunition, and you’re good to go. For example, Rebellion’s Aliens Versus Predator was terrifying, yet it was a straight shooter. But I don’t think anybody is willing to give it a shot anymore. This one was only created because 20th Century Fox was doing it themselves, and they are no longer in business. Mahoney
The first bug search After seeing the Aliens: Fireteam Elite review and hearing about a Marvel XCOM spin-off game, I’m not sure why we aren’t anticipating an Aliens game in the manner of XCOM.
It seems to be the ideal crucible for the story’s depth, investigation, and tension.
Games Workshop may not be pleased with this since it’s too similar to Space Hulk. Kirk, Matt
GC: That’d be incredible, given how much of Warhammer 40,000 is influenced by Aliens.

Enter The Matrix Again I heard a rumor – or more accurately, a hypothesis, since there’s no evidence – that Monolith Productions is working on a new Matrix game. They’re the same people that worked on the Shadow Of Mordor games, and they haven’t announced or done anything in the last four years. A job post that states “open world sci-fi game” is the only indication as to what they’re up to.
That might be anything, but when you consider that there’s a new Matrix film coming out soon, and WB virtually exclusively makes games based on their own IP, it’s hard to say. I believe that is quite probable. If it isn’t, it should be.
Despite all the excitement at the time, we never got a good Matrix game, and I’d love to see a contemporary take on it. Bullet time has become a video game cliché due only to that film, therefore it’s only right to return the favor and create a decent film. I enjoy the idea of an open world, particularly if you can fly or summon magical vehicles from nowhere.
To be honest, I was never sure why Neo could and couldn’t do certain things in the movies, but I enjoyed the action and would want to see it recreated in a game. Fester
also-rans in your inbox So, isn’t there going to be a Destiny 3? I suppose since it’s a game-as-a-service title, they think they can keep it going indefinitely? To be honest, it seems too complex to get into right now, but I’d be curious if they began again with a new one. Blue
GC: Bungie has growth plans that extend through 2023, so it won’t happen anytime soon.
Cloud gaming on Xbox One is undeniably cool. But, at the present, or at least the last time I tried it on my phone, I have to admit that the service is very poor, with a lot of latency. I’m not sure what frame rate it was, but it appeared to be in the negatives at times. Crispen
The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Simon Ashworth proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking, “What video game reviews have you disagreed with the most over the years?”
It may be one of ours or from somewhere else, but which one stands out as being either too severe or too forgiving to you? What grade would you have awarded the game in question, and what aspects of the review do you believe the reviewer got incorrect, and why?
In general, how reliable are the reviews you read, and how significant are they in influencing your choice to buy or play a game? What is the greatest example of a review introducing you to a game you didn’t think you’d like or guiding you away from a game you subsequently discovered was bad?
