Is Lego Skywalker actually coming this year....? I've had it on order with best buy since June of 2020

Lighter914d ago

Ikr? Downvoted for telling the truth though.

Anomander14d ago

I sure hope so! I have been looking forward to that game for awhile!

My_Name_is_Earl15d ago

I still can't believe Plague Tale Requiem is coming to Gamepass day 1!

Magog14d ago

What's so hard to believe? The same company developed their flight sim game.

My_Name_is_Earl14d ago

For starters they don't own the company nor do they own the game nor is it being published by them so there's that.

sparky7714d ago

Getting 3rd party games Day 1 is the best, even surpasses having timed exclusives for me.

againx1314d ago

absolutely. day 1 games regardless where they come from is the best value

My_Name_is_Earl14d ago

Unless it's an indie game, timed exclusivity is anti consumer plain and simple.

Reason I excuse indies is because usually that comes with financial or marketing backing which indies need.

There's zero excuse for a company to pay a AAA publisher to delay a game for just their competitors customers!

Microsoft bought out the developer.

My_Name_is_Earl14d ago

No they didn't. Asobo are free agents

gravedigger13d ago (Edited 13d ago )

Shhhh, you know that Xbox fans ignoring that or they think 3rd party publisher acquisition and locking ( which means, Xbox fans, that games won't come to any other console ) games from other platforms is the SAME as TIMED ( which means, Xbox fans that game will appear sooner or later on your platform ) exclusivity. Xbox fans are trying to spin everything.

A lot of third party multiplatform on this list? Microsoft doesn't have anything that's a first party AAA exclusive in Early 22 or spring 22. Stalker was suppose to come out in early 22 but now we have to wait almost a year for that and that's a 3 month time exclusive.

sparky7714d ago

To be fair Sony didn't have any first party games for the second half of 2021 yet MS had like 5. And so far it looks to be a repeat this year as well.

Tacoboto14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

Iki Island was just an expansion, but it was a decent length. Death Stranding also had its Director's Cut. So Sony wasn't bone-dry, but their holiday was outshined by Infinite and Horizon 5 (which got announced only at E3). Plus the other XGS titles

Hopefully both give us more surprise announcements mid-year that still make '22.

Shadowsteal14d ago

"To be fair" Playstation had exclusive games/content to play all year.

Returnal
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Deathloop
Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut
Death Stranding: Director's Cut
Final Fantasy 7: Intergrade

vs.

Microsoft Flight Simulator
Forza Horizon 5
Halo: Infinite

sparky7714d ago

@Shadowsteal
If you really want to do list then at least make them accurate:

Microsoft Flight Simulator
Forza Horizon 5
Halo: Infinite
SOT: A Pirates Lide
The Artful Escape
Sable
The Ascent
The Gunk

I could keep going but I don't want to embarrass you more.

Shadowsteal14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

@Sparky

I didn't include indies. All you're doing is adding Indies to bloat your list. Playstation had exclusive indies too...

So all I missed was the DLC for SOT.

sparky7714d ago

@Shadowsteal
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Returnal

Are both Indies on the same scope as games like The Gunk and The Ascent.

alb189914d ago

Yep, I think we need time to play what have been released.

My_Name_is_Earl14d ago

I didn't include indies...includes Kena and Returnal... Uh... What?

Keep embarrassing yourself, Xbox fan. Those games AREN'T exclusives

Btw. Ascent is rated for PS4/PS5.

Claiming that Returnal is an indie game and putting it in the same basket with Gunk and Ascent? Are you, Xbox fan, so damn obtuse?

Zhipp14d ago

God of war is most likely 2nd half

@CaptainHenry CrossFire X is out in about a month, and I bet Remedy are going to do an awesome job on it.

@sparky I agree, it looks like we are set for a direct copy of last year really.

CaptainHenry91614d ago

I tried out the Crossfire open beta last summer with my brother. I thought the beta was ok, but nothing spectacular.

Orchard14d ago

@Captain The campaign is different from the MP beta, basically entirely different - it's not even built on the same engine. It's being developed by Remedy and supposedly has more of the 'Remedy special abilities' that their games have. For example, you can slow time like in Max Payne.

I have very high hopes on Remedy making a great FPS experience.

Fishy Fingers14d ago

I wouldnt get your hopes up too much, all the single player previews have not suggested it's anything special.

Orchard14d ago

@Fishy I expect it to be better than CODV & BF2042, but worse than Halo.

So that's not a bad spot to land in. Some of the gameplay elements sound interesting/unique.

i need amicia and hugo again

zacfoldor14d ago

I actually wrote up a Switch wishlist earlier, haven't made one yet for other consoles, but I'll post the Switch one. My Switch 2022 WISH LIST:

1. Persona 4 Golden
2. Silksong
3. Metroid Prime Remake
4. BotW2
5. Kirby and the Forgotten Land
6. XBC3
7. Fire Emblem remaster or preferably a new one
8. WWHD + TP
9. Bayonetta 3
10. Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp
11. Triangle Strategy

Shadowsteal14d ago

This isn't really a wishlist. It's practically the entire 2022 lineup.

jznrpg14d ago

Persona 4 Golden on the Vita was awesome . My hopes is that they totally remake it for current generations as a port to Switch won’t change anything .

Yui_Suzumiya14d ago

There's a rumor of Persona 3 Portable coming to Switch!

phoenixwing14d ago

New fire emblem and xbc would be awesome surprise announcements for this year. Even though I don't like Nintendo practices their games usually deliver fun experiences
