Weekly Recap May 20th: Sega Reviving Old IPs, Destiny 2 Gameplay Revealed
Weekly Recap
(Last Updated On: May 20, 2017)

The big news of the week was that Activision Blizzard unveiled the official gameplay for Destiny 2. It wasn’t nothing too special, but it did give fans something to sink their teeth into. It was also revealed that the game won’t be launching on Steam.

Throughout the week Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has been slowly building feedback from the audience in a rather negative way. There’s been a lot of ill feelings toward the rise in SJW and third-wave feminism across entertainment media, and there’s an unfortunate swell around the topic over Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Hopefully it’s not as bad as we’ve seen and things will peter out. And Sega will be reviving their old IPs over the next three years, and gamers excited. These stories and more in this May 20th, 2017 edition of the Weekly Recap.

 


Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Campaign Could Be SJW Heaven

One half of the writer team for DICE’s upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is a full-blown SJW, and the upcoming game could be another SJW wet dream. New information from EA also seems to point to the game being centered toward SJWs. New highlights for the upcoming Alpha 3.0 of Star Citizen were spotlighted in the new Around The Verse video from RSI, including the new procedural breathing and the new CQC takedowns. Dynasty Warriors 9 will support the PS4 Pro, and it’s confirmed to run at 4K and 30fps. And the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games will be leaving digital storefronts due to the BBC license expiring from the publishers who distributed the game.

 


Sega Reviving Old Ips

Sega announced that they could be reviving their old IPs up through 2020, but no one has any idea what this actually means and if that means we’ll see remakes or re-releases. More SJW news… this time the Blank Panther & The Crew ended up getting axed by Marvel after releasing just two issues. The series will run up until it completes its six issue arc. We’ve got a review of Lego City Undercover for the Nintendo Switch; the new Sonic Forces will let you create your own Sonic abomination as the hero of the story. And more feminist propaganda gets thoroughly debunked.

 


Ubisoft Announces Far Cry 5 And The Crew 2

Ubisoft rolled out announcements for The Crew 2 and for Far Cry 5, but both were met with less than enthused responses from the gaming audience. Speaking of Ubisoft, they also announced that South Park: The Fractured But Whole has a release date set for October 17th on home consoles and PC. A demo for ARMS is available to download right now, and there will be some test fire launches for the game at the end of May and the beginning of June. And The Witcher is getting a Netflix show based on the novel… and sadly CD Projekt Red won’t have anything to do with the series.

 


Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Possible Feminist Angle Keeps Fans On Edge

The latest trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 hasn’t quite gone over as well as DICE and Electronic arts have given up some of the game to Lucasfilm and Motive in terms of the story campaign mode, and a lot of fans are getting somewhat disgruntled at what they perceive to be a feminist, SJW agenda. Owlboy managed to really win over gamers when it first launched on Steam, but now Nintendo Switch owners will soon get to play the game. Activision and Blizzard also announced that Destiny 2 will not be coming to Steam when it launches on PC, but will instead launch exclusively on Blizzard’s own launcher. And Rising Storm 2: Vietnam will officially launch on PC on May 30th at the end of the month.

    Skimmed through that Skyrim mod lawsuit thing. Sounds like some woman plagiarized everyone and then got upset when MxR reviewed her plagiarization, so she slapped him with a lawsuit. Sounds like a hypocritical attention seeker. What a pain up the ass.

    • Pretty much. It’s a lot of drama being fueled by someone looking to get a fat pay day from not really doing anything noteworthy.

  • Bitterbear

    Let’s see if Sega is going to go the Zootopia route with Altered Beasts. It would be so much better than the god-awful grimdark bio-weapon PS2 version.

  • I’m still hoping for Sega to bring back some of their 80s/90s arcade IPs: After Burner, Hang-On, OutRun, Daytona USA, Sega Rally, etc. etc.

    Can you imagine a modern HD Hang-On where you race licensed motorcycles on courses based on real world roads? Or a new OutRun where you drive the latest and most powerful Ferrari models? Or a new After Burner where you fly the newest fighter jets on the planet?

    I’d be interested in any of those. And seeing as a Ridge Racer game once had the Hornet stock car from Daytona USA, maybe another Sega/Namco crossover is in order? Give an F-14 Tomcat in the new After Burner a special black paint scheme to celebrate Ace Combat returning to Osea? Have the Su-37 “Terminator” with a special color scheme based on Yellow Squadron?

    • I’d buy remakes of those games in a heartbeat, so long as they don’t fill them up with multiplayer microtransactions and split-off DLC packs for the single-player.
