New year, new episode! Or, whatever thatâ€™s supposed to say whenever a new year rolls along. Actually, welcome to season 14! News over the past few weeks, in regards to gaming anyway, has been rather slim. So, weâ€™re mostly looking at whatâ€™s to come in the year ahead. Also, this gigantic Witcher resurgence weâ€™re seeing thanks to the excellent (in my opinion) Netflix series. Itâ€™s fantastic when a video game series can get proper representation when translated to another medium. And yes, I know the showâ€™s source material is the books, but rising tide and all boats and the like – itâ€™s just good to see, really.
Itâ€™s the beginning of 2020 and Iâ€™m not sure weâ€™ve ever been this early in the year and already know for a fact that we’re getting new consoles from Microsoft and Sony THIS year. Usually we have hints and whispers, but even before this year started, we knew weâ€™d be getting them. I cannot wait to see how this plays out over the year, especially when it comes to launch dates, pricing (more than anything else), and launch exclusives. Plus all the other bells and whistles both companies will tout to get you to buy their console over the competition. Microsoft is already doing this with a massive backwards compatible campaign and not only with the games but also the controllers as well.
In the meantime, Iâ€™m probably going to do a second re-watch of the Witcher. If only for the music.
