Starfield’s Hype, Death Stranding 2’s Rewrite, and Gaming’s AI Impact
Welcome back to another episode of the Monkey Nut Punch podcast!
We're kicking off today's show with some exciting news from the gaming world. First up, we're talking about Bethesda's highly anticipated project, "Starfield." IGN's early review has fans buzzing with excitement, but we're also reminding listeners about the cautionary tales of "No Man's Sky" and "Cyberpunk 2077."
Next, we're diving into the world of Hideo Kojima and the rewrite of "Death Stranding 2" due to the pandemic's impact. We'll discuss the original theme of connection and what we can expect from the sequel's characters.
We're also discussing the Xbox Game Pass and its impact on day one game releases. Has the service's convenience and affordability diminished the excitement of day one releases? We'll be exploring this question in-depth.
In other news, rumors are swirling about a "Quake 2" remaster reveal at QuakeCon 2023. We'll be discussing the potential multi-platform release and the speculation about a new Quake game being developed by id Software and MachineGames.
We'll also be talking about the recent surge in PC graphics card prices due to the AI boom. After the impact of cryptocurrency mining and NFT trends, the AI industry's demand is making it harder for regular consumers to acquire these cards.
Next, we'll be delving into the rumors surrounding "Assassin’s Creed Red." The game is rumored to feature a female shinobi and an African male samurai, potentially based on the historical figure Yasuke. We'll be discussing the mixed fan reactions to this news.
Finally, we'll be discussing some fun and quirky gaming news. We've got a tiny Galaga cabinet with a comically large joystick, and a new game called "Turbo Outrun Reimagined" that's a nostalgic nod to the classic "Turbo Outrun" game.
So buckle up, listeners, as we dive into these exciting topics and more on today's episode of the Gaming Face Punch podcast
