“Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. For the first time, experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.”

Looks awesome…Way better than the FB movies, at any rate.

…I might finally break down and buy a PS5…I probably wont…but I did get registered for a chance to eventually purchase one, on the official PlayStation website…So, we’ll see if I ever actually do receive the invitation.

I doubt any of my PCs will play this…Yes…I really am that far out of date, hardware wise…though…maybe my new Macintosh will…Hmmmm…[I just hate running heavy demanding software on compact machines, however…I’m convinced it burns them up faster.]

Wonder if it will have Mods.

Nintendo WON’T Censor This Very NSFW Anime Game!…

“Nintendo won’t censor ‘Massage Freaks’ on Nintendo Switch! This very NSFW anime game allows you to massage a variety of ‘tense’ anime girls in time to the music. It even features an extra spicy mode that allows for you to COMPLETELY relax these young ladies. Remember when Nintendo censored EVERYTHING? Yeah, those days are long gone…”

SNES, N64, Game Cube…and every main version of Game Boy put out…I own one of each of these…So, I’m no stranger to Nintendo…But I quickly became a Playstation gamer, when Sony entered the market.

A large part of the reason, is because Nintendo was always a bit too “Fisher Price” for me…and the sterile, never offensive simplicity of everything they put out, always kind of left me feeling…ummm…insulted, in a way…Because you felt kind of like you were being shoehorned into playing little/young kids games.

There was still a lot of great stuff…I just didn’t feel like it was functioning on my intellectual level.

I know things have changed a lot with consoles…They’re not the closed platforms they used to be…It’s still weird to know Nintendo is doing this.

How Elder Scrolls-like The Wayward Realms will change RPG games…

“The creators of the Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall talk AI procedural generation and fast travel in their massively ambitious open-world RPG game

Sometimes there’s a videogame project so ambitious that it’s hard to imagine how it could become a reality within today’s industry. Back in 1996, for instance, we’d never have believed that an open-world RPG with multiple continents and thousands of cities was possible, yet Julian Le Fay, Todd Howard, Ted Peterson, and the rest of the Bethesda class of ’95 did just that with The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, expanding our understanding of the genre and all that was possible within it.

26 years on, several Bethesda alumni including Le Fay and Peterson have reunited at OnceLost Games to work on something they hope will once again shake up the RPG discourse.

Their game, The Wayward Realms, will have certain similarities to Daggerfall. Set across a vast archipelago, it too will use procedural generation to create hundreds of cities nestled in diverse environments whose architecture and topographies reflect their place in the world. The map itself will be handcrafted, but much within will be procedural…”

I didn’t even quote the good parts…This sounds fantastic!…Sounds like it’s going to eclipse The Elder Scrolls.

“Preface
This document contains all (or nearly all) of the publicly known lore of the world of The Wayward Realms. It will continue to be updated (provided we remember to do so) until I set aside some time to get a proper wiki up and running (I’ll get around to it sooner or later). For legal reasons I will preface the document with this: This document contains some naughty imagery. This game is planned to release with an 18+/M for mature rating, and while there will be no explicit content in the game, there will be nudity, and there is nudity in this doc. Please do not read this document if you are under 18, or whatever the legal age is in your country. If you insist on reading it anyway, get a trusted adult to cover your eyes when there’s a naughty image on the screen. Thank you for reading this preface, and welcome to the world of The Wayward Realms.”

Square Enix Scrapes Western Games Off the Bottom of Its Shoes…

“Square Enix is getting out of publishing western style video games. They’ve sold their Western gaming division to Embracer — the same company that bought Dark Horse Comics for $300 million. Why? Marvel’s Avengers cost them MILLIONS. So it’s likely Final Fantasy remakes and Kingdom Hearts sequels from here on out. Then we talk about Yuji Naka slamming Square Enix and blaming them for the disaster that was Balan Wonderworld.”

Yes, they have a website!

This game is the spiritual successor to Daggerfall.

If you do a search on this blog, you’ll find two or three more posts dedicated directly to Daggerfall, right in this series…including to a free version of the game…Though, you’ll have to do some work, learning and patching to get it to work.
