American Gaming News for 24 Nov 2022
^Stay tuned after the ads for our summary of CD Projekt RED’s livestream, and our view on why The Witcher 3 deserves a next-gen upgrade. The fabled next-gen upgrade for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt... was announced all the way back when we first got our hands on the new consoles, so it’s been a long time coming. It’s no surprise that it’s taken this long though, given that the firm found itself embroiled in controversy following the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which arrived in such a shoddy state on consoles that Sony infamously pulled it from sale on PS4. Well, months of regular updates and a DLC announcement later, the Cyberpunk 2077 redemption arc is in full swing, and it seems that CD Projekt RED are determined to win back all that goodwill that they originally earned...

It's September 13, and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is just over 24 hours away from revealing its big plans for the future. It'll be a night of celebrities, game announcements, and an infamous afterparty full... of alcohol, confetti, and blaring music. It'll take over Twitter, and leave more than a few people nursing headaches the following day. But today, instead of focusing on his big night, studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama is sitting in a conference room talking about why he loves Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Call of Duty has a lot of problems. Even in the last seven days, documents have been published that show the close link the series has with the US armed forces, suggesting the game is a big,... military-industrial psyop designed to rescue the image of the US war machine and drive recruitment to its ranks. As if that’s not bad enough, the single-player portions of the games often whitewash US war crimes and paint other nation states as the aggressors in order to make the yoke of American imperial oppression look… well, less oppressive. So, to say I’m a ‘guilty CoD player’ is putting it mildly. Working this job means that I feel obliged to play the new games in the series every year – how else are we supposed to capitalise on all those lovely clicks? –...

The press release, which is via Business Wire, states, “This is the highest global sales level for any software on any Nintendo platform within the first three days.” That’s a huge feat for Nintendo, and for the Pokemon franchise on a whole. Since its conception in 1996, mainline Pokemon video games...
If you’re even tangentially into Star Wars, you know the score by now: Andor is hot shit. I mean that in the good way, not in the Bantha poodoo way. After Rise of Skywalker went to great pains... to cure me of the disease that is my long-held Star Wars fanaticism, Andor is finally providing me with something exciting enough to reinvigorate my interest in this universe – and so naturally, my thoughts now turn to how what Andor presents could be plied in the world of video games. Andor is about fighting facism, really. Star Wars has always had this weird problem of being a fun and fanciful space opera for kids while also having one of its key factions plainly inspired by the Nazis – so the villains simultaneously have to be space opera silly, the types who can get battered by...
