The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is an amazing game, but it has one glaring issue – its predecessor. Fans are eager for a new entry in the series that can finally put Link’s adventure to rest. So will Nintendo be able to deliver on these expectations?
Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 is a game that has been in development for a long time. It is expected to release in 2021, but there is no official release date yet.

There are no guarantees. That news concerning Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 patents was strange to say the least. Not the powers themselves, which are intriguing, but Nintendo’s belief that it can patent falling out of the sky? And it seems that it has?! They wouldn’t be on that site if they hadn’t been given permission, right?
Aside from the legal wrangling, I’m curious as to whether the game will really be released next year. It wasn’t at The Game Awards, as many expected (in fact, nothing from Nintendo was, which was concerning), and we haven’t heard anything since June, with no effort to reassure us that 2022 is still a possibility.
I’m skeptical, and I’m even more skeptical about Metroid Prime 4’s release next year. Surely, like the majority of The Game Awards games, they could have achieved some form of pre-rendered logo trailer? We didn’t receive even that, so I’m guessing it’ll be 2023 at the earliest. Nofleck
Nintendo has a habit of collecting. I’m presently playing Far Cry 6, and I had the audacity to leap from a building today, literally plummeting through the air, and headshot a FND guard on the way down. Clearly infringement of a patent for a game that has yet to be released.
Is Nintendo going to come after me?
What a bunch of nonsense. Razzledazzle
GC: We’re very confident you’re owed £1,000,000 by Nintendo now.
The worm is caught by the early bird. With considerable curiosity, I read Peter Molyneux’s NFT piece. It’s hard to imagine someone spent £670,000 for what is essentially a piece of fictitious crap. As far as I can tell, the wealth production theories underlying NFTs aren’t very novel, since the goal is to build a wholly false market, then dress it up to appeal to people’s more venal side. In a Ponzi scheme, the expenditures of the early investors are compensated many times over by subsequent investors.
This would be fantastic if the supply of new investors were limitless; after all, everyone earns money. In actuality, the supply of new investors dries up, and subsequent holders of the alleged asset are unable to find a buyer, causing the market to collapse and them to lose a significant amount of money.
To be honest, I have no issue with folks who are aware of the hazards but choose to invest nevertheless since it is a risk they are willing to accept, but they are seldom the ones who get injured. However, it is completely unacceptable for companies like Ubisoft to introduce the notion into popular gaming, since they are essentially preying on the stupid and naive.
To sum up, I wholeheartedly support Metro’s vehement opposition to the whole NFT paradigm in gaming. A. John

Statistics during the year I checked my Nintendo Year in Review on the website, and nothing strikes out as particularly noteworthy. Rocket League ended up being my most played game, owing to the first months when I ‘found’ it was free to play and got completely hooked with it.
It begs the question: why does the Switch UI only display such hazy information while everything is plainly documented, including whether you’re playing docked or handheld? saylow ttfp (gamertag) Currently, I’m on the lookout for an Xbox Series X.
What an eventful year it’s been (pic: ttfp saylow)
Finish the battle I really liked the new GamesMaster TV program, and I hope there will be more in the future. With shows like Playing with Power and Console Wars, there have been some very intriguing gaming shows recently. It’s encouraging to see television networks treat the medium with respect, since many people have more than a passing interest in it.
I know it’s a little out of date, but if you haven’t watched The King of Kong, I strongly suggest it. Which is based on the efforts of a few of players to stay on top of the Donkey Kong high score league table.
However, a third pillar to the hit Netflix series The Toys That Made Us and The Films That Made Us is something I’d really want to see. There are no awards for guessing what they might title it, but Pac-Man, Street Fighter 2, and Final Fantasy 7 would be entertaining to see.
So, Inbox Magic, go on and do your thing. highway 77
There’s only one mode to rule them all. So, like many others, I thought the graphics in The Matrix Awakens Unreal 5 demo were stunning, and no doubt talented developers will optimize the engine’s performance as they gain experience with it, potentially alleviating my concerns, but I actually hope we don’t get games with that level of graphical detail because… it’s too much for the hardware to render at 60fps.
To be clear, I wouldn’t avoid a game just because it ‘only’ ran at 30fps (I’m presently playing Persona 5 Royal), but I would be hesitant to play one that requires twitch gaming, such as first-person shooters or fast-paced action games.
I’m reminded of Simundo’s Inbox letter from a few weeks ago, in which he indicated, maybe jokingly, that he would wait for the PS5 Pro since it would be the time at which you wouldn’t have to choose between performance mode (60fps with excellent visuals) and quality mode (aka 30fps with phenomenal graphics).
That’s one possibility: the current quality and performance modes would be combined, but I believe the more likely scenario is that the developers would use the PS5 Pro’s increased power to create even better graphics, which you’d be able to access if you dropped down to the new super-duper quality mode’s 30 frames per second, and the cycle would start all over again.
When I become King of the World, my first rule will be to restrict quality modes, requiring all devs to work at 60 frames per second and squeeze out as much graphical glory as possible. After all, it’s impossible to overlook graphical embellishments you’ve never seen before. Bull Meestah
GC: You have our sword, but we worry you are correct in your assessment of performance mode’s permanence.
Presents that arrive early According to Commodore Fan, the free game on Epic Games Store from 4pm on Thursday, December 16th is said to be Shenmue 3. GOG is also planning a giveaway on December 23rd, 27th, and 3rd.
On December 13, they had a giveaway for Shadow Tactics: Blades Of The Shogun, which I reported about earlier in the week. I wish GameCentral and all of its readers a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Andrew J. is a member of the Andrew J.

Optional weapon The epilogue of Return of the Jedi is beginning to irritate me a little. To get light in Selene’s horrific existential conundrum, you mean I have to battle that jerk three times?!
Thankfully, the gameplay is fantastic and very addicting; otherwise, after 60 or so hours of play, I would have felt compelled to go on!
Returnal’s gunplay is very enjoyable, thundering, and gratifying. Since Vanquish and Binary Domain, this game has had the tightest, most complete shooting mechanics I’ve seen in a third-person shooter.
The weapon roster’s balance is likewise flawless, with no weapon becoming outdated in the long term. I’m now attempting to ‘get gud’ with the Coilspine, with the intention of obliterating several bosses with the simple Sidearm — although with some delectable qualities.
If you don’t mind, GC, I have a quick question for you: what are your favorite weapons and weapon loadouts in the game? Electropylon + Plyon Web, Hollowseeker + Waves + Potal Beam/Turret, Dreadbound + Enlarging Shards, and Thermogenic Launcher + Full Auto are among my favorites.
Horizontal/Vertical Barrage, Trackerswarm, Doombringer, and Tendrilpod are my top favorites among the Alt Fire options. Energized Gamer
GC: We like the Hollowseeker, but it doesn’t inflict enough damage, thus the Dreadbound has to win.
also-rans in your inbox In answer to the gentleman who inquired if the Switch OLED is worth purchasing due to the absence of impending releases, I would reply that it most certainly is. If you’ve just now discovered the Switch after it’s been available for over five years. You definitely still have a lot of material to play. Get a Switch and glance backwards instead of forwards.
