How About a Big, Extended Look at Hogwarts Legacy?
It’s the last day of my vacation and I’ve got to go back to work tomorrow. Ain’t that a drag? Well over the weekend, to raise my spirits, we got this extra-long visit to Hogwarts Legacy, a video game I am very much looking forward to in a couple of months. Hopefully it plays well on the Playstation 4 because I haven’t yet splurged on the hard-to-find PS5 just yet. We see a lot and learn a lot in this video, if you fancy a watch.
The create-a-wizard looks amazing. Lots of options, so that’s good. The common rooms and the castle look great, full of NPCs doing their own thing. That’s neat. We won’t be getting Bully-esque classes, like I wanted. I can live with that. There will be a day/night cycle, that’s cool. Yeah, this is a really good look at the game. And, hopefully, all of these things can be approved upon in a hopeful sequel.
First we need to find out if it plays OK on the PS4, pretty please.
Hogwarts Legacy comes out on Feb. 10.
Our Biggest Look Yet at Hogwarts Legacy!
In the end, I’m probably gonna buy and play Hogwarts Legacy. I love open world RPGs, I love create-a-character stuff and I still love the Wizarding World. It may have all been created by a terrible TERF, but being able to create my own wizard and send them wandering around a fully realized Hogwarts? This is gonna be too good to pass up.
Playstation and the game developers released this huge look at the game yesterday and every single thing in this video is exactly what I want to hear.
Create-a-character looks great. We’ve got a ton of outfit choices as well. I’m shocked that the game will diverge on which house you get to join, that’s insane. Are there going to be four different games? Surely the game changes depending on your House, right?! The wand fighting looks cool and fluid. The world looks huge and open worldy. The classroom stuff looks straight out of Bully, which is exactly what I want.
This game looks great and now I’m very excited to play. This is gonna be a helluva year for video games! Hogwarts Legacy is due out at the end of the year, but there’s a good chance it’ll get delayed — which I have no problem with! We’ve waited this long, I’m more than willing to keep waiting if they need to make the game more perfect.
6 Things I Want to See in Hogwarts Legacy
I have not yet decided if I’m going to buy the recently announced video game Hogwarts Legacy, based on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I have been looking forward to this game since it leaked a couple years ago, but writer JK Rowling has proven herself to be a horrendous transphobe.
So at the very least, for now, I can speculate on what I’d like to see in a single player Wizarding World RPG.
I don’t have any real excuse to hide behind in wanting to play this game, like supporting the developers or death of the author. I just really love single player RPGs and I love the Harry Potter books/world. So for me, it’s going to be a matter of deciding between how much I want to play this game vs. how little I want to support anything in Rowling’s world, because of her toxic views against trans people. It’s a decision a lot of fans have been grappling with for years, and when Hogwarts Legacy comes out, it’s a decision I will have to make.
So join me after the jump for six things I hope to see in the game…things I may decide to never experience.Read the rest of this entry
A Whole Buncha Playstation 5 News and Trailers!
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!
