By the looks of it, Bungie is already working to make sure that the game’s frontloaded with content. In a report from Polygon, Bungie has a full month of stuff planned for players. Two raids debut this month: Leviathan on Wednesday and then Trails of the Nine about a week and a half later. Friday sees Baro, I mean… Xur… return with rare weaponry. October has more in store from Bungie, including a prestiged raid and the Iron Banner from the original’s Crucible.
Yakuza Kiwami is this year’s second release from the series. Sega started the year in North America with the release of Yakuza 0, a prequel to the main events of the series. Several months later, Yakuza Kiwami, the remake of the first game in the series, has been localized and released as well. If you’ve listened to our podcast at all, I’m not shy about calling Yakuza 0 my game of the year. It was, without a doubt, an amazing experience. It serves as the baseline for my view of the entire series, and how the other games are constructed. And if the game is any indication, then Kiwami is good.
Patch 1.32 is out for Horizon: Zero Dawn and that means players can make gameplay easier. An earlier patch gave players the option to make the game harder, forcing them to use their wits against tougher, more intelligent enemies. The new patch gives players the option to soften up the combat, focusing on Aloy’s quest to find out more about herself instead.
