Happy Friday guys. To celebrate the best day of the week, we’ve got a little treat for you – that’s right, it’s time to round up the best weekly features at TheGamer.
This week, we cover a variety of topics, from Square Enix’s NFT sale, a unique experience with a brand new gaming PC, and an interview with one of the creators behind a full-blown fangame. Sonic’s ambitions.
Sonic Storm Interview: Azura Hardware on Creating 3D Love Letters for Generation 5
Let’s start with something that would make anyone calling Sonic bad eat those words. News editor Issy van der Velde interviewed Azura Hardware, the developer behind Sonic Storm, a fan-made game that’s taking the Internet by storm (pun intended) by combining Jet Set Radio and Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s rare to see a fangame so positively received by both gamers and creators, but as Azura Hardware says, “I think the position we’re in right now is perfect. Sega allows fan games to exist, and even acknowledging or including fan creativity in the celebrations is in itself great, as long as no one pokes the bear.”
Be quiet about JK Rowling
Speaking of eating those words – this is JK Rowling, someone who should absolutely do it. In this feature, editor-in-chief Stacey Henley argues that we need to stop talking about Rowling and her paradoxical opinions, stop giving her a foundation and stop making her a martyr. Apparently Warner Bros. We’re trying to distance ourselves from her, so it’s about time we did the same.
Square Enix didn’t think the game would be more fun and that would scare us
Sorry, but the next feature is not an active topic either. Here we have editor Jade King about key features in discussion Square Enix’s recent open enrollment that it’s interested in the metaverse, NFTs, and believe that few gamers are “playing for fun”. As Jade correctly pointed out, it’s a mess and a worrisome sign for the future of Square Enix and its games. Let’s hope the next Kingdom Hearts doesn’t have the NFT Keyblade.
I have a new gaming computer and the first game I played was Terraria
Yes, it’s studio stupidity, have fun. Next, we have expert Harry Alston tell us all about New gaming PC and the first game he played on it was Terraria. Harry argues that we all have a comfortable game that settles us in something new, and that’s Terraria for both him and his brother. Have your healthy dose of the week.
Pokemon The Movie: I Choose You Neutered Ash’s Origin Story
Finally, let’s have some comfort food of our own – Pokemon movie guru and feature editor Eric Switzer puts out a review of each Pokemon movie every week, and he finally hit reboot generation. The bad news, though, is that it’s largely a collection of the best moments from the anime without any of the episodes having the context that helps make them so powerful. It also gets negative points for making Pikachu talk. Total.
Forza Horizon 5 addresses you by name on your Microsoft account, but for some transgender players, that has unintended consequences.
