Respawn’s first Star Wars game has arrived! EA and Respawn have released their single-player story following Cal after Order 66 was executed. The game is a good combination of Dark Souls and Uncharted despite some flaws around the edges. We also revisit more of Luigi’s Mansion 3 and talk about the complexity behind the boss battles.
In the news, Pokemon Sword and Shield is suffering from a lot of controvery including what is called “Dexit.” Despite this, it sold 6 million copies. Valve announced Half-Life: Alyx for VR systems and Tesla announces Cybertruck. Cybertruck also may appear within Cyberpunk 2077. We’ll see!
