Season 16, Episode 35

Lowered Expectations…

Things seem lite. I feel like we should be talking about new games released or just around the corner to do so, but nothing stands out. There’s God Of War in November and your usual Call Of Duty.

Let me take a moment to talk about Call Of Duty. That franchise doesn’t even make a blip on my radar anymore. It was the quietest of blips before since I’d stopped playing the games, but even more so now I just…forget about it. OR, rather than forget, it’s just a part of life now. Routine. Every year we get a new CoD. Every year around the same exact time we get a new one. And there’s been so many now it just rolls into itself over and over again and it feels like the passing of time. You don’t notice it anymore. It just happens. But that’s just me, probably. I doubt it feels that way for fans of the franchise.

Anyway, there’s other games on the horizon but not much being said. Scorn is out now but the reviews are all over the place and it’s a pretty short experience. Gotham Knights releases soon and…I don’t know where I am with that game. It doesn’t look fun and for all the stuff I have read that says not to compare it to the Arkham series – that’ll be tough for me, I think. Maybe. Sonic Frontiers is on my radar but, like, at a discount whenever that may happen. There’s probably a Nintendo Switch title or two getting some big releases that have fallen off my radar or don’t seem to be as big as they once were when announced.

It just feels lite to me. Maybe not to you, however. I guess it all depends on what you like and what you’re looking forward to. I hope your horizon looks a bit brighter than mine at the moment – game wise anyway.

Sure would be a lot brighter if we have a brand new Splinter Cell. Ubisoft, we’ve been waiting 3,336 days for a new Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, or VR exclusive).
