Launching quietly Features for Good Readers As usual, I believe the PlayStation 5 one made some valid points, but it also served as a reminder that Far Cry 6 exists and will be released shortly. Is it just me, or has there been almost no buzz about this thus far? I’ve seen a lot of cut sequences with Giancarlo Esposito’s character, but very little gameplay. I’m not saying it isn’t out there, but I haven’t seen it in regular advertisements, which I find strange. Is Ubisoft under the impression that it won’t be a big hit? They’re typically huge sellers, right?
Normally, I’d think that implies they’re concealing something, but I imagine the game is just utilizing Far Cry 5’s visuals with a few tweaks. I’m guessing it also plays the same, which isn’t a complaint, but it does make me wonder why they aren’t showing off as much as they usually do.
Psychonauts 2 has had a similar experience. I would never have known the game existed if it weren’t for GC and other reviews. Microsoft is always eager to throw money about, but when it comes to anything essential, such as marketing a niche game for which they went to the bother of purchasing the creator, it all becomes too much. Marketing is a complete sham. Cubby
Large-scale design So my PlayStation 5 arrived this morning, and I’ve just just started setting it up; I know it’s all about the games, and the console’s appearance is secondary.
However, it is larger than I anticipated, and I am not really like of the design. I’d rather have another dark box than this.
Saturday’s Reader’s Feature on Horizon Zero Dawn piqued my attention as well.
But I disagree; Horizon Zero Dawn is one of my favorite PlayStation 4 games, and I don’t see how anybody could label it a poor game. It’s one thing to say, “I didn’t like this game for these reasons,” and quite another to say, “I didn’t like this game because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’t like it because I didn’ I understand that Reader’s Features is just one person’s viewpoint, but I still disagree.

Crashes are required. Racing games seem to have grown associated with pushing the limits of each console generation’s visuals. However, as games like Forza and Gran Turismo get more realistic in terms of vehicle models and surroundings, it becomes more startling and upsetting when you crash into a barrier at high speeds and your speedometer drops to zero.
I’ve been playing Burnout Paradise Remastered on the Nintendo Switch after finishing it on the Xbox 360, and the crashes are still as thrilling as ever. I never got around to playing any of Criterion’s Need For Speed games, but it’s unfortunate that EA has essentially killed the Burnout brand, a once-great series.
Do you have any clue what Criterion is up to next? saylow ttfp (gamertag) Currently playing: Ring Fit Adventure with Burnout Paradise Remastered
GC: Criterion is working on a new Need For Speed game that is being kept a secret. Although, considering that Burnout never featured any actual vehicles, the accident problems you mention are most likely due to limitations imposed by car manufacturers.

Go straight to the end. RE: Friday’s two Psychonauts letters @Augy: Psychonauts is playable on the PlayStation 5, but only as a backwards compatible game. I’ve been enjoying it on my PlayStation 5, and it’s fantastic.
Mark Fitz (Mark Fitz): When it comes to playing the original, I’d definitely start with 2. There is an introductory scene that repeats all of the events from the original and VR games, so there are no problems there. You may always go back to play 1 as a prologue if you truly like 2 (I am – especially now that the game has really opened up). Matt (the fleeing one)
Call Bethesda, E.T. I’m not sure whether the absence of aliens in Starfield is because there will be a major revelation regarding them or if they are just not there. Making a sci-fi game where everyone is human seems like a waste to me, so I’m hoping there’s some sort of smart concept behind it all.
My assumption is that they’ll take a similar approach to The Expanse, where there are no real aliens but you can see alien technology and the remnants of a galaxy-spanning civilization. That’s all great for a program with a limited budget for VFX, but I still believe it’s a pity for a game. Also, I just realized that The Expanse’s treatment of aliens is essentially a mix between Halo and Mass Effect.
Given how long they’ve been working on it, I’m going to say I have faith in Bethesda for the time being, and I’m really shocked we received an update out of nowhere on Friday, so maybe there will be more. Keef
Never forget about review ratings and whether or not you agree with them. After playing critically acclaimed games like Red Dead Redemption, The Witcher 3, and even Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I’ve tried and failed to play them again, where all of their flaws, from wishy-washy controls to degradable weapons to horribly convoluted menus and inventories, have become a barrier to my enjoyment.
Is that to say I’d reduce their original 8/9 ratings to a 6? No, because these works of entertainment left an indelible impact on my mind and heart at the time of their performance, from great writing and unforgettable casts of people to wonderfully realized worlds to explore and get lost in. These games snatched you from the start and demanded 200+ hours of your time when you couldn’t put them down, when you had to get up early, and when you weren’t playing. And a game like that stays with you for a long time.
As I previously stated, after attempting to replay them with varying degrees of success and seeing and being irritated by niggles that were forgivable during the initial playthrough, I would and have recommended them to friends, family, and strangers, because, like me, their first playthrough will be spent marveling at the sheer scale and enjoyment garnered from said games, and hopefully give them some great grins.
My buddies and I still talk about Red Dead or Breath Of The Wild, and my nephew and I sometimes play a literal (nice-smelling cardboard-card) game of Gwent from The Witcher. There will be memories that last a lifetime. bent huge boy
Jeff’s conclusion Jeff Goldblum is one of my favorite actors. Have you ever seen the hidden ending of Jurassic Park: The Lost World on PlayStation 1, when he advises the player to switch off the game and attempt to meet someone of the opposite sex? ANON

Dinosaurs to unwind with I really enjoyed your Jurassic World Evolution 2 conversation with Jeff! He’s one of my favorite performers and a wonderful person. I like his candor in the interview, as well as his real passion for the Jurassic series as a whole and the character he portrays, despite the fact that he isn’t a huge gamer. Fantastic!
When the first Evolution game was launched, it was okay, but it had several major problems, such as micromanaging the dinosaurs’ food and their extremely short lifespans in the cages. However, after many fixes, upgrades, and more material, the most recent iteration is fantastic. The sandbox mode is one of my favorites; it’s like a gorgeous theme park with dinosaurs, and it’s a really peaceful way to pass the time.
So, I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel, which will be released later this year, as well as the new Marvel’s Midnight Sons game, which you also previewed last week. These may be the games that persuade me to upgrade to the next generation. Which is odd, since neither is likely to be labeled as a AAA title, yet they’re both more intriguing to me than another first-person shooter or racing game. Brando PS: I’ve written in previously, but I believe I’ve been a daily reader for well over 20 years, thanks to GC and Digi! It’s more likely to be around 25. Is there anybody who can beat that? If that’s the case, you’re going to irritate the pig…
GC: To be honest, there wasn’t much of an interview since we had to submit our questions ahead of time, and the publisher opted out of the more intriguing ones. We still had a great time since Jeff Goldblum was so delightful.
also-rans in your inbox In response to Matt’s Amiga remark on Thursday. Hunter was a fantastic game, and I agree that it was far ahead of its time! Sir, you’ve made an excellent decision. Simon
You should be proud of yourself for exposing yourself to criticism over the weekend. GC, this is a hot topic. That’s something I didn’t expect other sites to do, and I welcomed your feedback on whether the reader had a valid argument. It’s also encouraging to see Red Dead Redemption 2 receiving some attention. That is a game I despise. Pocorny
The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Ishi proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking, “How much do you really play video games at the moment?”
How much time do you spend playing games on a typical week, ignoring time spent reading about them or watching others play? Is there a regular pattern or time of day when you play games, or does it rely on whether or not anything new has come out?
Do you play on a regular basis, and does it change depending on the time of year or other factors? How has the amount of time you spend playing changed as you’ve gotten older?
