Sony held a big Playstation 5 event yesterday and revealed all sorts of information. First up, the actual console will be released in mid-November. The main console will be $500, while a version that ditches the disc drive and is digital only will be $400. Either way, I’m not buying a console at launch, so I’m not worried.
Beyond that news, we got a ton of new video game trailers and peeks!
The biggest news is that the Hogwarts Legacy game has finally been revealed! There was a short, blurry video leaked a couple years ago that alerted people to the game, but now we’ve got a full trailer! With gameplay!
Granted, JK Rowling is a pretty rotten person these days for her anti-trans opinions. She’s bad news. So this will be one of those situations where we have to decide for ourselves how willing we are to separate a work from the author. I don’t think Rowling had anything to do with this game, but she’s definitely going to make royalties off the license. So you’ll have to decide for yourselves.
Personally, I’m probably in. An epic RPG where you create your own wizard and send them through Hogwarts? All this needs to be is Bully from Rockstar set in the Wizarding World and it’ll be a masterpiece.
Next up, how about a gameplay trailer for the Spider-Man: Miles Morales game?!
Looks like an excellent amount of more Spidey gameplay to me! I think they could have found a better villain than the Tinkerer, but who am I to judge? This one should be really fun.
Want to know what’s also fun? Apparently both Hogwarts Legacy and Miles Morales will be available on the PS4, which I currently own. I won’t even need to buy a PS5!
Next up is a teaser for God of War: Ragnarok. The first reboot God of War game was a masterpiece, so I’m sure this sequel will be just as amazing, if not moreso.
Strange that they’re already going with Ragnarok for the second game. What’ll they call the third?
Lastly we have Final Fantasy 16! How exciting. It’s hard to even remember that the Final Fantasy series is still ongoing. I enjoyed FF15, so surely 16 will be fun!
Looks fun, at least. The graphics definitely look amazing. Might I need a PS5 for this one?
Anyway, that’s all the games that were revealed/teased yesterday that I care about! Some are coming to PS4 and that will be good enough for me. I’ll get a PS5 eventually. All of these games have me excited!
There’s just not much else going on for entertainment these days. No more movies. No more comics. A lot of video games are getting delayed, along with some TV shows. How about some trailers for a couple of video games that just released.
First up is the latest trailer for the Final Fantasy 7 remake! I’ve read online that this trailer is full of SPOILERS, so watch at your own risk.
I’ve decided to hold off on getting this remake. The reviews are positive, and I am looking forward to the game, but I don’t know if I want to pay the full $60 for just the opening chapter when there is no promise of any future chapters. We’ll see how desperate I get for new video games…
Then we’ve got the Resident Evil 3 remake, because the only thing coming out these days is remakes of classic games, I guess…
This also looks pretty good. I was a big, big Resident Evil fan back when I had the original Playstation. It was one of my major franchises. But for some reason, I have held off on getting these remakes. I’m not sure why. They’re supposed to be really good. And perhaps I’ll, again, get desperate enough for new games to try them out. Maybe I’ll wait for Resident Evil 3 to also go on sale and then play them both back-to-back? Could be fun!
Plans have been in place to remake RPG classic Final Fantasy 7 for awhile now, with no signs of it actually happening. But developers released a nifty new cinematic trailer last week, so at least that’s something!
The trailer promises more information next month. We’ll see what happens! I’m all for having this remade. Maybe this time I’ll better understand the story and what’s going on…
I finally beat Final Fantasy 9 last month after roughly 13 years. It was an unremarkable experience. Not 13 continuous years of trying, mind you. I borrowed the game from a friend way back in my college days, but the first disc was scratched and the game crashed only an hour or so into it. I didn’t try again until last summer when Final Fantasy 9 was released on Steam.
I played for a bit last summer, but gave up out of general boredom. Thankfully, the gaming spirit grabbed me again this winter and I powered through the rest of Final Fantasy 9, finally sending Zidane and company up against the evil Kuja to save…I wanna say Gaia? Was that the name of their planet? Anyway, I beat the game, recaptured my lost youth and now I’m gonna talk about it!
A trailer came out this weekend for the remake of Final Fantasy VII, something long since desired by the gaming community. It’s a pretty cool trailer.
Me, personally, I’m kind of excited. Not googily eyed excited, but I imagine I’ll play it and relive some fun memories. I played the first one back in the day, on the good old Playstation 1. Those were good times. If I remember correctly, I played it entirely with a strategy guide, step-by-step, page-by-page. I have no idea why I wanted to play it that way though. Must have been a fool.
Also, word has it that this remake will be episodic, which is weird, but then perhaps this remake is going to be too huge to be one game all at once.
