Psychonauts 2 is this year
I've seen it shown in some form so many times, I thought it was Psychonauts 3 at this point.
And that BF 2042 trailer was really hype even though I'm a singleplayer lover.
Yeah, it looked pretty ok. I'll be keeping it on my mind.
Art style of the Halo Infinite campaign looked promising, a combination of Halo 1 and Halo 3 with a modern sheen. But no gameplay shown.
Halo Infinite multiplayer, on the other hand, pained me. Zero classic Halo vibes aside from the announcer. Struck me visually as Halo 5 multiplayer with different lighting, weapons felt like they had no impact just like the flat Halo 2 Anniversary multiplayer. It really seemed like, and maybe it is actually, that the campaign and multiplayer are being built by two entirely different teams.
No Starfield gameplay, and the in-engine footage didn't even show outer space. Launching 11-11-22 though, so next year will be its proper showing.
Forza Horizon 5 looked very nice, though the things that make Horizon Horizon - super loose handling, emphasis on exploration over racing on a course - aren't my thing. Still, it did manage to tickle my fancy a little bit.
Also, is anything launching this year? Over and over, 2022, 2022, 2022, 2022, 2022...
Animal Crossing was ALMOST the game that got me to buy a Switch. That moment in time, the early days of the pandemic and all, and then the beautiful reviews of the game came along. I was honestly suddenly ready to spend hundreds of euros the next morning as I was checking the prices and the opening time of my local stores here for the following morning. Like I was under some spell. Then I finally broke free right before going to bed that night. Mainly because of the money. ':)
Switch games I own:
Paper Mario: The Origami King
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Super Mario Odyssey
Labo Vehicle Kit
New Pokémon Snap
Planning to buy when I can afford them:
Luigi's Mansion 3
Dragon Quest XI
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
Ring Fit Adventure
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
And of course, planning to buy Breath of the Wild 2 when it comes out (played BotW 1 on Wii U).
The Switch library is excellent, and I suspect Tuesday's Direct is going to give it another great boost. Skip some meals and buy it. :-)
First was good, so would play. I'm not super sold on the new party reveals yet though. Also, if this thing doesn't have Kirby DLC the way the original had DK DLC I'm going to be upset.
I doubt they'll have Nintendo characters not connected to Mario.
