Finally! The countdown to Next-Gen is over as we usher in the month of November. Apart from being the month of my birth, this November will be special as it will oversee a leap in gaming with the release of both the Xbox Series X and the PS5. And, despite Cyberpunk 2077 being delayed (YET AGAIN!!!), this month will have some excellent titles to make these new machines sing. Here are our picks for the best games releasing this month:
Ubisoft's much loved cyber action-adventure series is prepping its third entry for release. Watch Dogs: Legion will be one of the final triple-A games to release before the onslaught of Next-Gen hype. Now the questions is, should you pick it up on the 29th or wait for that new shiny gaming box to play it on? Here's the review roundup:
If you are into the whole cyberpunk aesthetics and setting, then I have some great news for you. Not only do you have the awesome looking Cyberpunk 2077 to look forward to in November, but much earlier you can slash away as a deadly cyber ninja parkour assassin in GhostRunner. So, is this game a good opening act? Or are we better off waiting it out for November 19? Here's the review roundup:
When the news broke that the Animaniacs will be rebooted for today's generation, a lot of the old generation worried that the show would be mellowed out to match the more political correct world of today. Well, if the series' return being on the more 'grown-up' streaming service HULU wasn't evidence enough that this will not be so, its latest bonkers trailer definitely drives the point home.
Since we first learnt of Raya and the Last Dragon, and had it listed as one of our most anticipated animated films of 2020, a lot had happened. The film got 2 delays, a change of lead voices actress, 2 additional directors, and the arrival of a tiny little global pandemic to top it all off. Now set for a March 2021 release, I was eager to learn more before we close 2020's chapter. Thankfully, Disney answered my prayers with the release of a new teaser trailer and must admit...March 2021 is too far away.
If you grew up watching a lot (and I mean...A LOT) of Disney/Pixar animated films, you would take away many life lessons the films often display. One, in particular, is that life itself is unpredictable, ironically a lesson that Pixar themselves had to face themselves this year thanks to COVID-19 and the uncertainty over the release of their latest film SOUL. Until this yesterday evening that is, as Disney has decided on a final release date of December 25th, and celebrated with a new trailer.
