Some Video Game News!
I haven’t had much I felt like writing about this week, but it’s Friday and I want to get something up, so how about some video game news?
The biggest news this week was the announcement of Fallout 76, the newest game in the much-loved Fallout series. I’m a huge fan and am excited about this game.
Of course, I’ve also heard that it isn’t a traditional single player Fallout game. Io9 tells us that it’s going to be a survival MMORPG, which kind of sucks. I’m not sure if I’m as interested knowing there will be other people involved. Those people are weird!
The world has also been introduced to Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, which is going to be set in Ancient Greece.
I think I’m more hopeful about this one. I thoroughly enjoyed Assassin’s Creed: Origins last year, after skipping several subpar games. The Ancient Egypt setting was phenomenal.
Of course, Ancient Greece sounds a lot like Ancient Rome, of which we’ve seen a lot. Or we’ve seen some Rome, I dunno. The point is, there were plenty of other historical time period options, is what I’m saying. I’m going to remain cautiously optimistic here.
We’ll know more about both games — and hopefully plenty of others — at E3 in a couple weeks.
