Weekend Hot Topic, part 1: Next gen sequels

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider – does Lara must loosen up? (pic: Sq. Enix)

Readers talk about what they’d prefer to see from the sequels to their favorite franchises, from Ultimate Fantasy to The Legend Of Zelda.

The topic for this week’s Sizzling Matter was impressed by Grackle, who requested what you need to see from the subsequent sequel in your favorite franchise. It doesn’t matter whether or not the sequel has been introduced already however we need to know what you’d do to enhance your favorite sport.

In virtually each case the reply was to return to fundamentals, with readers nervous that too many franchises have overpassed what they was.

New Raider
There already is a brand new Tomb Raider in growth so I actually hope they will get again to the roots of the sequence and away from the thought of Lara as some kind of Arnie like killing machine. The fight was all the time the least vital factor within the unique video games and but within the reboot trilogy it’s virtually the one factor you do.

Perhaps folks haven’t received the persistence for old style puzzles and platforming anymore, however they have to be capable of make some sort of twist on it. Mario nonetheless sells so why is making an adult-orientated platformer so troublesome? Ever since Prince Of Persia disappeared and Murderer’s Creed gave up on the parkour no one tries anymore and that’s an actual disgrace.

Additionally, for god’s sake give Lara some sort of character, apart from whiny psychopath. Make her the James Bond fashion quipster of the early video games and provides her a correct unhealthy man who’s not an fool. On their very own deserves the reboots are okay however they’re virtually nothing like Tomb Raider and I believe that’s why they misplaced focus and the final one particularly appeared so aimless.

The Zelda of Legend
My hope for the subsequent Zelda, since we principally know nothing about it’s that we lastly get an opportunity to manage Zelda herself and that she’s not an absolute wimp. I realise that’s unlikely given her characterisation within the final sport, and the truth that she’ll most likely have the identical (horrible) voice actress however the franchise is called after her, it’s lengthy overdue that she really had one thing to do in them.

I like the concept that you’ll be controlling her on the bottom and Hyperlink within the sky, however I do not know if that’s doubtless because it’s probably not hinted at by the trailer. Enjoying as Zelda may give entry to extra magic talents than Hyperlink typically has, particularly in fight, and will permit you to play a unique sort of character to what the video games normally have.

I’d additionally prefer to see larger and higher dungeons come again, as many followers would, and a bit extra characterisation for Ganon or whoever the unhealthy man is. The sport doesn’t should far more story however some sort of motivation and character for whoever you’re preventing would assist. I felt that was the one essential downside with Breath Of The Wild, past the boss battles typically being poor.

My hope is that we get a Star Wars video games the place the gunplay is sweet, only for as soon as. Nearly every part else from the films has been good in a single sport or one other from lightsabre fight to spaceships however I’ve by no means actually appreciated the gunfights in any of the video games, together with Battlefront.

For motion pictures which might be recognized for his or her ‘pew-pew’ motion it’s all the time weirdly limp and unexciting within the video games. I performed that Republic Commando remaster lately, with the reminiscence that it had been one of many higher ones, and it was simply terrible.

I don’t know who could be greatest at it, given DICE have tried and Treyarch are unavailable however I’ve hassle imagining Ubisoft are going to be those to crack it. Perhaps if it was the Rainbow Six Siege guys however it’s not, it’s the those that did The Division who’re… okay, I suppose? My hopes are low.

Paper Fables
So far as new upgrades for an present franchise go I believe Nintendo wants to rent Moonsprout Video games, makers of Bug Fables, to make the subsequent Paper Mario.

The role-playing components are incredible, the artwork fashion is a real homage, and the soundtrack is past nice.

The factor is although, I need the weather of their fight within the subsequent Paper Mario. To begin with, three members of the social gathering (sport changer), the power to offer one character’s flip to a different, and a fast method to swap your social gathering in the midst of fight. Slick, efficient, intelligent.

Nintendo rent this workforce and provides us an important (non-gimmicky) Paper Mario sport.

Enjoyable Fantasy
My large hope for Ultimate Fantasy sooner or later is that it follows the instance of Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake and return to annoying characters and incomprehensible tales that take themselves far too significantly. Because the reader earlier within the week mentioned it was such a aid to seek out that the remake received all that stuff proper. What offers me hope is that it wasn’t actually as a result of unique sport, the place the script was fairly unhealthy, however extra the following spin-offs and simply this being a contemporary sport with larger manufacturing values.

I actually appreciated it and I hope that Ultimate Fantasy 16 is taking notes. It doesn’t should have the identical fight or something, simply make it enjoyable and never with any silly guidelines that make it overcomplicated. My largest concern although is the story as a result of they’ve already described it as being influenced by Sport of Thrones and Western fantasy, which already has me worrying about an excessive amount of grimdark.

That’s probably not what I need from my anime role-playing sport with strolling cacti and moogles in it. I’d a lot want Sq. Enix create a brand new franchise to inform extra severe tales, they’ve accomplished that loads of instances up to now, and simply make Ultimate Fantasy a enjoyable romp prefer it was. We’ll see I suppose, I get the sensation it’s not popping out anytime quickly.

Actual Fighter
I do know some folks will get on at me for this however I hope that Road Fighter 6 strikes away from the cartoon fashion graphics of the final two video games and tries to be slightly extra severe. I’m not asking for it to be a Mortal Kombat clone however I’d like to see one thing with tremendous easy animation however as in the event that they had been actual folks and never cartoons.

Perhaps that’s what it’s all the time been to some folks, with all of the anime affect, however I all the time imagined the unique video games wanting practical as soon as the tech was higher.

Make or break
I simply hope that Microsoft is ready to get issues again on monitor with Halo Infinite as a result of if it’s one other dud I’m simply accomplished with the sequence. The primary two video games had been principally my introduction to sport, undoubtedly multiplayer gaming, and I keep in mind being actually into the continued story whereas Bungie will nonetheless engaged on it. Then they left and every part simply grew to become loads much less particular.

The annoying factor is that what to do appears fairly apparent to me. What made the primary Halo so superb unique is that it was this large open world sandbox, when issues like that didn’t actually exist. In fact, it was really actually small and the entire thing was only a intelligent phantasm largely however these days we will do it correctly, with big open world areas and superb physics and destruction results.

And but they already appear actually iffy on whether or not Halo Infinite is open world or not. A bit. Generally, appears to be the reply. I suppose like one thing like the brand new God Of Battle? Nothing I’ve seen to date appears like I’d think about a subsequent gen Halo. However then it’s nonetheless an Xbox One sport in order that’s an issue as nicely.

I’m nervous that the entire thing appears to be half-assed and but they’re speaking about it as if it’s one thing that everybody is wanting forwards to. Which isn’t my expertise from any of my gaming mates. In the event that they handle to show this round and make a great sport out of it I’m going to be very stunned.
