So the good news is we are getting an E3 this year! Yes it is going to be all "digital" but lets be honest with ourselves, for 99.99% of us it was anyway! The bad news is Sony is still going to do their own thing at some other time. It really is too bad and while I can understand it from a meat space perspective (huge expense) if everyone else is going all digital why not ditch that single player and go multiplayer in the game you were already playing!??! I am sure there are fees that would have to pay but if you have the worlds attention for a few days, capitalize on that!
Three weeks ago I said I had beaten the final boss in Dragon Quest XI S and wasn't going back in time. I was/am an idiot. I had to go back in time to actually beat the real final boss and while I did accomplish that task, my new goal is get all the characters to level 99. Once I do that I will stop playing...I swear.
There are absolutely no "new" games out this week but there is one that launched late last year on the Switch and PC and is now coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. Lets take a look at it.
Yes I know I am breaking my rule but this is only a few months between platforms and different platforms. The others below, well some are 24 years old so they almost qualify to be a member of 2old2play on their own.
Super Meat Boy Forever
Release Date: April 16th, 2021
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
Super Meat Boy was a great indie platformer...actually still is. Super Meat Boy forever kind of landed with a "meh". I can kind of see why. Originally it was designed as a mobile only game so it had an auto run component...makes sense on mobile. On PC and console however...well...that's 1/3 of the Run, Jump, Duck components of all platformers. The engineering gods gave us thumbsticks for a reason! Let us use them dammit!
