Games Inbox: Getting ready for Google Stadia, Metal Gear reboot, and Fortnite Chapter 2 apathy

Will you be giving it a go?
The Wednesday Inbox works out how to get an even cheaper Switch Lite at Tesco, as one reader wishes GTA V had a VR mode.

The oncoming storm
So Google Stadia is out in just a couple of weeks, eh? I imagine that means that YouTube in particular is going to be crawling with ads for it, so that we’ll look back on these days of saying, ‘Why isn’t there any marketing for it?’ with a kind of fondness. Jokes aside though, as someone that was initially very keen to hear about it I find myself strangely unexcited for the whole thing.
My interest was piqued when I thought, as many seemed to, that it was going to be the Netflix of gaming. While in fact the main idea is that you buy games for regular prices and stream them instead of owning them. There is some kind of streaming service coming next year, which is maybe closer to what I imagined, but that’s not what’s going to be out next month.
I’m still in two minds about whether to give it a go and funnily enough one thing that puts me off is the way Google has quietly discontinued their Daydream VR headset. Never heard of it? Well, it’s because Google put no effort into selling it and gave up after a couple of years, which they have a long history of doing with new ventures and which is almost certainly going to be the fate of Stadia if it’s not an instant hit.
Personally I think they’re going to be pretty easily outmanoeuvred by Microsoft and Sony. Their only hope is some important exclusive games, but I’m still not seeing any sign of that.


Never again
Knowing that Konami make more money now than when they still employed Hideo Kojima is some heartbreaking stuff. I know his stuff always overrun and I guess it was never Call Of Duty levels of importance but to me it was always my favourite franchise and now I’m faced with the situation where the only thing worse than the knowledge of there never being a new Metal Gear is the thought that there might be.
It’s pointless to make another with Kojima and yet I’m sure at some point someone is going to suggest a reboot. That will be a day almost as bad as when they cancelled P.T. and all but gave up on gaming completely.
At this point I wish Konami would just sell off its games to someone else. Nintendo would definitely make a good Castlevania and I’m sure plenty of indies could manage a good Silent Hill. But there is no Metal Gear without Kojima and I hope against hope that someone at Konami realises that.


Exclusive enhancement
So here’s a weird little wrinkle to the usual withheld content/timed exclusive shenanigans. Apparently The Outer World is enhanced on Xbox One X but not on PS4 Pro, and it’s a purposeful thing that the publisher has confirmed . I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that one before. Maybe it’ll be a new trend going into the next generation?
It does seem pretty pointless to me though. Especially with a game that’s not a graphical powerhouse and never likely to scrub up to anything special, graphically speaking. It almost seems petty not to just treat both consoles the same, for something you’ll probably need Digital Foundry to even notice the difference.
Oh well, I guess that’s a better outcome than stuff people actually do care about, but the lengths company will go to in order to con you into buying a specific version are just getting silly.
GC: It’s probably because Microsoft bought the developer, even though the game was started before the acquisition and is multiformat. It is an odd one though.

Youth games
Those readers were right, the Fortnite reboot was enough to get me to try it again and… I lasted about 20 minutes before I got bored and switched it off. Don’t get me wrong, Fortnite is a fine game and I’d much rather kids were playing this than FIFA or Call Of Duty, but I’ve never liked the building stuff and find the combat to be pretty woolly an unexciting.
It’s okay, but it’s obvious the real appeal is just as a social network for tweens and young teenagers, who are more interested in chatting amongst themselves, swapping memes, and arguing over which is the best skin. And that’s fine, it’s harmless and as I watch my nephews playing it I feel no urge to sue Epic Games for making it too addictive.
But it holds no interest for me and the only adults I know that play it semi-regularly don’t play any other games. I’d like to detail their complex and revealing reasons for doing so but actually it’s just because it’s free. You know, except for all the battle passes.

Extra savings
Regarding the Switch Lite Tesco £199 deal, I did a bit of shopping yesterday and spent £30 on groceries. With my receipt I got another coupon giving £20 off electrical and gaming purchases over £150.
I don’t know if you only get the voucher with a minimum spend but worth asking at the customer service desk.


GTA V has been out for many years and with the big differences between the current and last generation version of GTA V I am wondering if we will ever see Rockstar add some updates to it to allow the VR headset to be used with the game and if possible some newer features. Particularly the view types and a first person view on foot or in the car with the VR headset.
It would be a good update for the game and one that I feel is very long overdue. Although we are looking at the PlayStation 5 very soon, perhaps Rockstar can implement VR support for the PlayStation 5 and Grand Theft Auto VI right of the bat, when it is eventually developed and released. Maybe some online features for the PlayStation 5 VR headset when it’s eventually released, so people will have a reason to get PlayStation VR. It does feel like a disappointment that Grand Theft Auto V didn’t get VR support and hopefully in Grand Theft Auto VI this will happen on the PlayStation 5.
Also, with the Rockstar Editor on GTA V perhaps on GTA VI this could be expanded to allow the use of a VR headset and allow better interactions with the menus and gameplay so that GTA VI will have a lot to offer and will surpass GTA V?
Have Rockstar and Sony had negotiations over PlayStation VR or has this simply never been on the table to discuss?

GC: Rockstar can use VR if they want, they already have with the L.A. Noire spin-off.


Dave’s Island
What with Mario being a common name in Italy I wonder if that has any affect on how the games sell over there?
For example, would any UK readers be put off buying critically acclaimed games if they were called Super Keith 64, Super Keith Odyssey, or Keith & Trevor: Superstar Saga?

GC: We were always told that Yoshi is the diminutive of Yoshihito, and so it’s the equivalent of calling your main character Dave. We’re not actually sure that’s true though.

Ancillary reality
I can certainly see the appeal of VR but I don’t know if there’s ever before been hardware so dependent on how gaming fits into your life. I’ve had PlayStation VR for nearly a year now and it feels like such an effort to bother playing that I’ve only played the Tetris Effect demo, the first three levels of Astro Bot, the X-Wing demo, and a couple of the demos in the starter pack thing that comes with it.
I have Rez Infinite, Resident Evil 7, and Tethered to try as well but it’s the hardware and the relative inconvenience that’s the problem. I cut myself off enough playing a standard console nowadays, so to add another layer to that feels like a step too far. It’s literally at the stage where I have to have a day off in the house on my own with no non-VR games on the go for me to consider playing it.
That’s such a seldom occurrence that I feel like the only benefit of me getting one last year was to satisfy my curiosity after everyone talking as though you’re literally pulled into a new world.
That felt like hyperbole but maybe that’s because I have a barely detectable squint and this might mean I don’t feel the benefit of 3D movies. That makes sense to me – I certainly wasn’t blown away by the 3D on the 3DS either. Although I can definitely detect the 3D and depth in VR, I feel like I must be missing the full effect.
I appreciate people look to get different things out of different games but I’ve never quite seen that apply so much to hardware before this. Even if it did make me feel fully immersed, until it becomes the norm for every household member to sit with a big plastic blindfold and earphones on all the time, I’m not sure this hardware is for me.

I’m currently playing Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair on the Switch. I can’t believe that one of the tonics is actually named Broken Joy-Con. The irony!

This week’s Hot Topic
The subject for this weekend’s Inbox was suggested by reader Onibee, who asks what classic video game would you most like to see get a remake?
Remakes – as opposed to remasters, which merely increase the resolution and make other minor improvements – are becoming increasingly commonplace, with the recent Zelda: Link’s Awakening , the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake , and news that Bluepoint are working on a major new remake for Sony .
So what other game would you like to see get the treatment and why? Who would you like to develop it and what changes would you like to see in terms of graphics and gameplay?
