Welcome folks, and happy “60th Anniversary of a bear going supersonic” week!

In March 1962, the US Air Force wanted to test ejection capsules for their spanking new supersonic B-58 bombers, and crash test dummies hadn’t been invented yet. Instead, they sent up 6 bears and a chimpanzee to be yeeted at Mach 2. Most of the animals survived their landings, but all were subject to autopsy later, to check for internal injuries. Science! You may all play a game where it’s best not to think about where everything came from.

The pace picks up again this week. There’s some games with hype that fans have been waiting for.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is an action-RPG in the Borderlands universe. It’s framed as a game within a game, opening the door for the trademark Borderlands metajokes. Mechanically, it’s the same smooth, shoot’n’loot gameplay. All the signs are pointing to a return to form for Gearbox. The real proof will be in the multiplayer launch!

GhostWire: Tokyo could be the last Bethesda game to come out on a PlayStation. By the devs of Evil Within, it’s a first-person action-adventure where you wander around a haunted city, doing hand gestures to cast spells at supernatural foes. So it’s kinda like Dr Strange meets Ghostbusters, but set in Tokyo. The karate magic effects look cool, but how fiddly would they be in first person?

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is Kirby’s first 3D game and the first really big Switch game for 2022. It’s the patented Nintendo formula: a colourful world with jaunty music, filled with collectibles, puzzles, and activities. On top of Kirby’s usual powerups is the new mouthful mode, where Kirby can swallow and become even larger objects, like a car or vending machine. This looks solid.

It’s the Switch’s week this week. Kirby and the Forgotten Land just has that happy Nintendo joy-sheen on it, and I don’t want to say anything bad about it, lest Kirby eats me. GOTW.

Comments

Thanks for the usual excellent write up. Ill be adding Ghostwire to the list of games I might play when I am done with Elden Ring.

Kirby will get some love from my daughter as soon as the school year ends. As for me, Rune Factory 5 might eventually make it into my library.

Does Pokemon Legends: Arceus not count as the first big Switch game of 2022?

True, but Kirby is REALLY big

Keen for a few things there! Kirby looks very cool, and I'm interested in Rune Factory 5 but still have Rune Factory 4 in the backlog so I'll hold off for now.
