Games Inbox: Call Of Duty: War Zone impressions, Nintendo Direct predictions, and the end of E3

Call Of Duty: Warzone – have you played it yet? (pic: Activision)



The Thursday Inbox is excited to find out more about Lego Super Mario , as one reader creates his own solution to Joy-Con drift.

First day’s Duty So I had a good three hours on Call Of Duty: Warzone last night and I have to say it seems pretty good. I’m not surprised, as Blackout was better than I thought too, but I would agree with most of what GC wrote in their first impressions . There’s actually a decent amount of new ideas at work and I like the Gulag, the tickets to revive dead players, and the push to have 200 players at once.



The way they’ve handled killstreaks is good too and probably the best way to do it. My problem is that the graphics are a bit meh, and it’s really just a lot of grey looking buildings and landscapes. I know it’s Call Of Duty, so Fortnite style cartoon stuff is not going to happen (nor do I want it) but it does all seem a bit uninspiring to look at.



I like Plunder as well though, as something a bit different, and the whole thing seems surprisingly non-exploitive. Although being able to import your loadout from the main game is a bit cheeky and clearly meant to annoy people playing for free into buying the full game. Other than that though I like it and I can see myself playing it for a long time to come. Hoppfen



The day the hype died I suppose it was inevitable, especially as Los Angeles has already declared a state of emergency, but I’m really sad to see E3 cancelled, especially as I have severe doubts about it ever come back in the way it used to be. I will never understand the hatred some gamers seem to have for E3, which as far as I can tell is driven purely by resentment at not being able to go there personally.



Apart from the benefit of keeping the wheels of gaming turning, as described in GC’s story about indie developers networking, E3 creates something close to a level playing field for the whole industry. Everyone knows they have to put on their best show (literally) and that they’re be competing with the best in gaming for the spotlight.



Now everything’s going to be spread out in terms of when the reveals are and the bloat that will no doubt accompany the announcements. I know I don’t want to watch a three hour long reveal of the next Activision game, filled with paid-off YouTubers pretending it’s the next big thing, when I know it would’ve just got a five minute overview at Microsoft’s E3 conference.



Smaller companies, that can’t afford to put on their own shows, will now get lost in the shuffle. Consider how fewer people will tune in to an Atlus livestream, for example, compared to if Persona 6, or whatever, was announced on stage at a Sony conference. E3 was the most popular single topic on Twitch last year so why some people have it in for it I will never know. But it’s gone now and I can only hope it’ll be back. I miss the hype already.

The big game So finally we get a Nintendo Direct at the end of the month, assuming the rumours are true . I’m fascinated to know whether we’ll ever get an explanation for the secrecy but I’m willing to bet we won’t, and they’ll carry on as if not having a release schedule for six months is normal.



But what will they reveal? I’m guessing Metroid Prime Trilogy and maybe another Wii U port like Super Mario 3D World. But beyond that it’s very difficult to say. I do agree that Splatoon 3 is likely but I notice it’s still in the Japanese top 10, so maybe they’ll give it another couple of years yet.



My hope is a brand new franchise, like Splatoon or ARMS. I had hoped that Nintendo would make at least one per year but that hasn’t happened yet, as good as their other stuff has been. But I don’t think there’s anything obvious now to be the ‘big game’ for 2020 so I hope it’s something new (and please don’t be yet another lame attempt to reboot Star Fox). Jimpack

Nintendo Swig So Nintendo has asked that the lawsuit be dropped in the issue of Joy-Con drift, which has rightly been rejected. The arrogance to try and hide this issue is astounding. I am on my third pair of Joy-Cons and still had to go down another route to play the Switch.



Now I have my Switch rig I have never been happier. It still cost a bundle, but if my Pro Controller breaks it is still cheaper. Come on Nintendo, keep it real and admit that Switch owners need compensation. Here’s a picture of my Switch rig. I call it the Swig and it’s the only way to play the best console on the market.

Swig doesn’t sound quite so marketable (pic: GTH)



Thin edge of the wedge I’m disappointed in Sony: if I’d known Horizon Zero Dawn would come out on PC over three years after its original release date, I never would have bought a PlayStation 4 in the first place. I mean, it’s like when I realised that you can keep milk outside when it’s frosty and I threw my freezer away.



Now every year in February (roughly, sub-zero dates vary and are often scheduled close to each other) I can have a bowl of Nesquik cereal in the morning before I sail to work and I appreciate it so much more because I haven’t wasted any money on frivolous electrics. Magnumstache



GC: We’re not sure what the sarcasm is in aid of. Do you think that all future PC ports will only ever be three years after the original release?



Catching up I went to turn off the Xbox 360 last night and tripped and fell onto the button (I did not angrily press it in a rage quit on FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage, no, that certainly wasn’t the reason), cracking it. I have had the console since 2006 and I didn’t even realise it was hollow?! The console still turns on and off, just looks a bit silly now.



I am one of the people in the boat of not being affected by the game drought we are in. It has helped me make some progress on the Xbox 360 games in the hope that I can finally remove the console from under my TV.



Bugbear’s (spiritual) predecessor to Wreckfest is still good to play and the graphics hold up well. Before this I played and completed a couple more older games, namely Bionic Commando: Rearmed, which was pretty average, and The Saboteur. I can’t believe I had overlooked The Saboteur for so long. The whole of Paris being in black and white prior to liberating an area is well done, plus attempting to play stealthily and then giving up and going in all guns blazing didn’t seem to get tiresome for me.



Inboxer Steve called for this to be remade recently and I would have to agree with his view (and that of Split/Second being remade as well).



Next up: Brian Lara Cricket 2007 – although I will likely end up playing today’s release of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps. NatorDom PS: Reggie Fils-Aimé has joined GameStop’s board of directors this week. Hopefully his appointment will help them turn their fortunes around.



A Link to the cinema I’d love a Zelda movie and I really think it could work well. It’s probably the only major Nintendo franchise that would work in live action and, as the reader said, at heart it’s a fairly straightforward fantasy world.



I’m one of those that is always against the games having too much story, especially if it takes up time with cut scenes and the like. But with a movie you can do much as you like with that and I’ll be perfectly happy. Although I’m already cringing about the ‘jokes’ they’ll make about whether Link is a mute or not. Gonch

Building to an announcement I was so happy to see that Lego Mario tease, even if I don’t know what it going to be released. I suppose the license with K’Nex must have expired.



Inspired by this, here’s a suggestion for a Hot Topic: What would be your dream gaming toy collaboration and product?



Honestly, I’m struggling to figure out how to word that correctly, but as examples based entirely upon this deal: Lego Zelda? Lego Metroid? Lego Bayonetta?!



I’m getting too excited now, and I don’t even know what’s happening. Joseph Dowland



That Lego Mario video teaser looks like the Switch has been slotted through Mario (if you look you can see the edge between his legs) and his eyes, mouth and screen on his chest is the actual Nintendo Switch screen.



Also looks like Lego Duplo, so maybe aimed at the younger gamers?



I’ve no idea what it could be though, but you can bet it’s something nobody expected. Anon



GC: Look for some more information this afternoon.



Inbox also-rans There are three free games on Epic Games Store on PC from today for the next week, they are: A Short Hike, Anodyne 2: Return To Dust, and Mutazione. Looking forward to trying A Short Hike as I have heard good things about it. Andrew J.



I know this comes up every now and again but why is the comments section filled with such angry, angry people? Is it anxiety over the coronavirus or something that they feel the only way they can express themselves is by being publicly upset about video game news? Gifford



This week’s Hot Topic Last week was the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation 2’s first release, so for this weekend’s Inbox we want to hear your memories of Sony’s second console.



Did you own a PlayStation 2 at the time and if so what did you think of it? What games did you own and play, and which were your favourites? Have you played any of them recently and how do you think they hold up?



What do you think is the legacy of the PlayStation 2 and what should it be best remembered for? How would you rate it compared to other PlayStation consoles and do you think it deserves to be the best-selling format of all time?
