This week’s Xbox Developer Direct show was about to get exactly as boring as I thought it would be – which, to be fair, they warned me about beforehand. But then, in the middle of the show, they had to ditch one of the most delightful games I’ve seen in a long time. Hi-Fi Rush looks like the kind of action game I’d love, but I realized how much I wanted it as soon as I got it on my greedy mitts. That’s the best kind of surprise – and now I want more like it.

Funnily enough, it seemed that the other game that made a big impression this week was an old one: Goldeneye 007, which brought its aging self to Game Pass and Switch. I’m teasing, but it’s nice to see an older but iconic game brought to modern consoles without the need for a remake of bells and whistles. Those are nice if we can get them – and I will devour Dead Space if I have the chance – but no one has the time or money to recreate it all.

In a slightly more wistful tone, Neil Druckmann said in an interview that Naughty Dog isn’t interested in making more Uncharted games and probably won’t make The Last of Us Part 3 either. The latter is fine with me, because I was pleased with how part 2 ended. However, I miss the action and whimsy of Uncharted. I wanted to see where it would go starring Chloe or Nate’s daughter Cassie. And The Last of Us is hardly dead, like HBO just signed the show for a second season.

Personally, I went from being inactive with one game a week to having all games thrown into my lap. I’ve already published my review-in-progress of Forspoken – and I want to finish and review the game, out of respect for the developers if nothing else. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to find the time to do that with Fire Emblem Engage, Dead Space and Hi-Fi Rush all vying for my attention. It’s nice to be spoiled for choice.
