So, Nintendo Switch owners, what games are you looking forward to in 2022?
The Nintendo Switch was launched in March 2017, and the system has since made a huge impact on the gaming industry. While last year’s handheld Switch did not offer much in terms of games, 2018’s Nintendo Switch Online service has given the Switch a new lease on life with hundreds of classic Nintendo games on the eShop, including the likes of Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong Country, Earthbound, Star Fox 64, etc. But how many of these are confirmed for the Nintendo Switch’s second year of life?
Nintendo’s new Switch is still months away, but that doesn’t stop us from thinking about what new games it’ll get in the interim. We’ve already come up with some of the most anticipated Switch games of the next year, so what are the others? Nintendo’s got some big ideas for its upcoming hybrid console.

As one reader repeats Super Mario 64, the Monday Inbox expresses concern that PlayStation enthusiasts are more prone to rage than any other.

Switching to the next year With Microsoft and Sony preparing their holiday displays, I’m more interested in learning about Nintendo’s plans for the near future. Despite having the OLED model and specialized titles like as Advance Wars, their only truly huge games are Metroid Dread and the Pokémon Diamond/Pearl remakes, so they’re in for another quiet Christmas.
But what happens next? We first heard about Pokémon Legends: Arceus in January, and that was the end of it. Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 is set to release later this year, although it has already been postponed and has no set release date. It’s the same with Splatoon 3, about which we haven’t heard anything since its announcement. There’s also Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonneta 3, both of which were announced years ago but have yet to be released — and aren’t even guaranteed for next year.
As for what could come out that hasn’t been verified, the new Donkey Kong game rumors looked plausible, but they totally disregarded the anniversary, so it’s almost hard to predict. Other than that, the Super Mario team hasn’t done anything in a while, so it seems like an easy route to take.
The problem with Nintendo is that you never know when they’ll make an announcement. Sony and Microsoft seldom go more than a few months without a show, while Nintendo went two years without a Direct. Will it ever be the same? Onibee PS: How about an update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons? That game has been abandoned, and it’s really insane.
The Fans’ Battle Why is it that you only hear about PlayStation fans going insane from online trolls? This recent instance, in which a man was doxed for saying the new PlayStation 5 model was worse, is the latest in a long series of events, although I don’t recall ever hearing anything comparable from Xbox enthusiasts.
I would have assumed that being behind would have distracted them, but evidently not. Is it simply that they’re accustomed to being behind and PlayStation fans aren’t, so any notion that the PlayStation 5 could win them over makes them laugh?
Nintendo fans are well-acquainted with ups and downs, and they don’t seem to mind. I don’t recall things being this terrible in the Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3 battle, when Xbox was in the lead for the most of the time. Have fans just become more irrational, or are modern social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit making it easier for them to get agitated? Jared
What’s the difference between original and best? With all of the hype around Red Dead Redemption 2, how do people feel about the original game? I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption 2, although I understand why other people did not. In my view, the original game had a far better narrative and gameplay. Andrew J. is a member of the Andrew J. PS: I’m thinking about getting a buddy an Xbox gift card or a digital Xbox game; do you know whether a physical gift card can be purchased online? Is it possible for me to have a digital gift card or a digital game delivered on a certain date? So I can place an order now and it will be delivered the next day. You may buy Amazon gift cards ahead of time and have them delivered on their birthday or other special occasion.
GC: Amazon, GAME, and probably others have them, so it’s simply a matter of obtaining them on the correct day.

keeping an eye on the tea leaves It’s just four days before Sony’s presentation. I have a hunch the first game will be a next-gen GTA 5 with additional content for the PlayStation 5 and a release date that is 30 days before the Xbox Series X. Horizon Forbidden West is likely to get a new trailer.
I also believe that Call Of Duty: Vanguard will be presented in more depth, with more multiplayer and confirmation that DLC will be available for 30 days on PlayStation, and that they will conclude with the new God Of War, which will be revealed in its first ever video.
I also believe that with the Xbox Series X showcasing its racing game, Gran Turismo 7 will be shown in all of its splendor. Only time will tell whether the visuals can compete with Xbox. If I’m fortunate, a new Spider-Man or a new game will be on display. Let’s have a look and see if I’m correct. David
The truth about the conclusion I just stumbled upon your Far Cry 5 and its conclusion post.
I agree with you and disagree with you.
It is, without a doubt, the worst possible conclusion for a game like Far Cry 5. All of our time in Hope County was for nothing. While it’s heartbreaking to watch some of our friends die, others survive and return in Far Cry: New Dawn.
Every ending, on the other hand, is a fresh beginning, and that is where Far Cry: New Dawn begins.
Far Cry: New Dawn’s conclusion, in my view, is the true Far Cry 5 ending. Pierre
4 the earnings RE: The cost of Horizon Forbidden West. So I believe the aspect of Sony’s pricing approach that irritates me is that it seems to be greedy. Sony is on fire; console and software sales are higher than they’ve ever been, and as they enter a new generation, they’re continuing to rake in billions from PSN purchases.
It was bad enough that they charged more for PlayStation 5 titles, but now their complex upgrade process and exorbitant pricing for Horizon Forbidden West feel retrograde to me.
As shown by messages to your Inbox, it seems that they have people emotionally involved in their games and believe that they can charge excessively high rates or ‘twice’ for a game and that gamers would really defend them.
I can’t criticize their business plan since they’re on track to dominate another generation, but it’s one of the main reasons I’m debating whether or not to purchase a PlayStation 5.
They’re also almost hard to get by. DarKerR is a character in the game DarKerR (gamertag)
Taking advantage of the situation I’m a little behind on last week’s Hot Topic because, well, I didn’t have time. Between his bed and ours, I’ve gotten one to two hours each night since my son was born 18 months ago. I said a few weeks ago that I was itching to play Psychonauts 2 – I’ve played for three hours so far, which isn’t terrible.
I’ve become a phone gamer more out of need than anything else. Civilization 6 has been replaced by Polytopia, while action games have been replaced by Carpet Bomber.

After 20 years, it’s been two decades. It’s been almost a year since I last played Super Mario 64. So it’s no surprise that returning to this pioneering game evoked strong feelings of nostalgia. What I wasn’t expecting was how well this game has aged, both visually and in terms of gameplay.
Sure, the camera’s limits and annoyances have grown more apparent with time, and Mario’s motions are no longer as accurate and sensitive as they were in 1996/7, and some of the levels’ mission structure is a bit too basic for my tastes.
The interconnected beauty of Princess Peach’s palace, the clarity of vision and creativity in the various realms, and the game’s inherently entertaining and intuitive nature continue to surprise me.
I can’t wait to show my nephews and niece Super Mario 64 and explain how influential it was in the development of 3D games as we know them today! Energized Gamer
also-rans in your inbox Based on what Johnny Silverhand told me, I’m kicking myself for not saving Takemura in Cyberpunk 2077. It reminds me of the way Shadow was saved in Final Fantasy 6. The voice acting is excellent. TommyFatFingers
I’m not sure whether Far Cry 5’s conclusion is my least favorite of all time, but I thought it was cruel of Ubisoft to style a guy like Jared Leto and then refuse to let me kill him. ANON
Andee in the Inbox made a good point regarding the classic Japanese film Hausu (House). It’s a huge understatement to say it’s “out there.” It’s well worth your time to watch. Chevrolet Malibu (PSN ID)
GC: After hearing about it, we’ve made plans to watch it this weekend.
With Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 shortages and rumors of shortages till 2023, this seems more like a mid-generation update like PS4 Pro, and we’d be better off waiting a few years for PlayStation 6 and Xbox Triangle Cos Sin or whatever they call it. MRHBK
GC: Continued shortages will simply prolong the wait for the next generation (if there is one). You may have to wait until 2028 to hear anything about the PlayStation 6.
The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Cubby proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking, “What has been your favorite Achievement or Trophy to earn in a video game?”
It doesn’t matter whether they were tough or not; which one did you like the most and which one did you think was especially well designed or just had a clever name or concept? What is the key to a successful accomplishment, and which developers excel at it the most?
What motivates you to strive for accomplishments, and how much work have you ever put into achieving one?
