Some people would call this News I suppose. For me, it really is just whatever grabs my fancy, and probably not the most timely of announcements. So Bits of Interest it is 🙂
Another Wednesday, another round-up on things I am looking forward to! Last week, the Kickstarter for a fun game idea called Shelfie Stacker got bumped for PAX 2020 news. Today, PAX merch is available to order. I didn’t want to push talking about Shelfie Stacker again, so today I talk about two things that are making me spend my money!
So, a very short one today. Wednesdays I talk about things I am looking forward to, usually games on Kickstarter. Yesterday, PAX Aus 2020 was officially postponed until 2021. But that doesn’t mean that I still can’t be looking forward to PAX! I wrote this thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and thought I would float a way of celebrating PAX online this year. Glad it was only Tuesday because PAX Online 2020 is real.
So the PlayStation 5 was revealed this morning (Australian time). I got out of bed early and enjoyed the reveal. There is a lot to be excited about, even if not a lot of concrete information came out.
But the information that was revealed is pretty impressive – and divisive. So as no one else on the internet has given their two cents on the topic, I thought today I would give my thoughts on the PlayStation 5 reveal.
So the one Kickstarter project I was interested in this week, I can’t back. Delivery restrictions – they don’t send to Australia. But an old favourite is also coming to Switch this week. How to choose what to write about?
As the meme says – why not both? The Messenger looks like a brain busting puzzle time, and Burnout Paradise is coming to Switch for driving mayhem!
Bringing out a game with multiple themes can be a mixed blessing. The same game over and over again makes people gloss over it, but Love Letter usually tries to add new twists to the game. Now Z-Man Games has announced Infinity Gauntlet, but I think it changes the game so much I don’t know if the ‘A Love Letter Game’ will help or hurt this release.
