We have now had another run of the annual big corporate gives us trailers events and, of course, Baldur’s Gate 3 won game of the year, good for them! However there were also plenty of new games shown off, and while most didn’t interest me too much there were a couple I wanted to discuss. As always, if you want a full rundown be sure to check the official catalogued stream which will give every new announcement.
Firstly was the announcement of a brand new game from Daniel Mullins which came as a huge surprise, and in fact it wasn’t just that but was also a sequel for Pony Island, which I adored! Pony Island 2: Panda Circus will seemingly see us taking on a bit more of an Eastern styled retro game this time and will be seeing us bargaining for our soul by playing an old arcade cabinet… classic stuff. I’m hyped as hell for it and the fact we haven’t got a release date yet makes me sad, hopefully not too long!
Second was a surprise announcement from Capcom, a new Monster Hunter game! This one is being released in 2025 and will see more big monster slaying and silly as hell armor. I also get Final Fantasy vibes for some reason, maybe it’s just a Japanese open world game thing. Regardless more info for the game will come next year, so stay tuned.
Finally, the last game I want to talk about is perhaps the most intriguing. It’s a brand new game from Hello Games, the creators of No Man’s Sky. This new game is called ‘Light No Fire’ and is a fantasy open-world RPG with a procedurally generated planet, similar to how Minecraft works. This is an interesting prospect as the idea of taking the core type of gameplay from No Man’s Sky and putting it into a Fantasy setting already makes me very interested. Of course this may just be wild speculation as it may turn out to be a dumpster fire on release just like No Man’s Sky was, but I still have a large amount of hope. Could this be the next big RPG? Guess we will just have to wait and see.
And that’s all the games I wanted to talk about today. As I said, not too much else to talk about aside from maybe the Warframe update release date but I’ll just talk about that next week. Regardless I hope you all enjoyed the event, see you next week!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
