In this week’s Podcast, Ethan rejoins the show to recap on the Nintendo Direct which took place on the 09/04/2019, to discuss the recent news of Telltale apparently being revived, Sony’s apparent list for the Tokyo Games Show, Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure Announcement, and Ikumi Nakamura leaving Zenimax Studios.
Nintendo Direct Recap
Kicking us off for our leading topic this week, the guys recap on Nintendo’s latest Direct which featured everything from Overwatch coming to Nintendo Switch, SNES games FINALLY making an appearance, Terry Bogard joins Smash Ultimate and a bunch of new Indies coming to the system.
Telltale Games Revived
Following this, Andrew discusses the announcement that Telltale Games is apparently being resurrected by a company called LCG Entertainment. Don’t worry if you have never heard of them, we haven’t either! This LCG Entertainment will apparently be completing the projects Telltale abandoned when they closed down and will be bringing on a heap of old names from Telltale. Details relating to this story are very vague and we speculated on what or why LCG would bring Telltale back.
Sony at TGS 2019
Anthony then discusses a list of games Sony would be showing at the Tokyo Games Show as well as what we are most looking forward to during the event. What were some of your predictions from the Tokyo Games Show?
Cyberpunk 2077 FPS only
Next up, CD Projekt Red has decided to remove all Third Person Cutscenes from Cyberpunk 2077 and make the entire game in First Person. There has been a lot of backlash with this decision due to the character customisation option in-game. Players will barely be able to see their custom made characters throughout the game unless they look in mirrors or reflective items in-game.
Ring Fit Adventure
Following this, Ethan discusses the latest device from Nintendo set to revolutionise how you get fit and play Video Games. The Ring Fit Adventure looks like something you would expect to see coming from Nintendo, featuring a resistance type ring device that you work out with as well as a leg band that measures your movements. We discuss our thoughts on the device, possible names for it and much more.
Ikumi Nakamura Departs Zenimax
And lastly, Taylor discusses Ikumi Nakamura leaving her position at Zenimax studios and her statements to the sudden decision. We discuss why she potentially left her position at the studio and what her future may hold in Video Games.
