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.

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.

That sure is the logo alright

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.

Hogwarts Students Were Doin’ It, and You Know It!

Let me lay some truth on you people: the students at Hogwarts, definitely the older ones, were knocking boots all up and down that castle. Maybe not Harry and his pals, because they had other stuff to do, but what about the rest of those 15, 16 and 17-year-olds who weren’t saving the world every week or hopelessly pining after their best friend or their best friend’s sister?

I mean, c’mon, the dormitories were co-ed!

This revelation comes from the boys and girls of Not Literally, I think. At least that’s the name of the person who uploaded it to Youtube.

Alas, if only you could apparate within Hogwarts’ walls.

Thanks to Topless Robot for the find.
