The Inner Gamer,

337: Forza Horizon 5, Kena Bridge of Spirits and the Metaverse

December 06, 2021

Brett is very excited to talk about Forza Horizon 5 from Xbox Game Pass. It’s an open-world sandbox racing game set in Mexico that is about as perfect as a racing game can be. We also review Kena Bridge of Spirits. It’s an indie title that released earlier this year as a PS5 exclusive that looks an awful lot like a Pixar film. We also talk more on Guardians of the Galaxy and Spiderman in Marvel’s Avengers!

In the news, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally getting good reviews from Black Friday and there is a Marvel MMO in the works. We also talk about Halo Infinite XP Changes and how hackers are affecting crossplay. EA wants to make a connected Battlefield universe and they delisted Titanfall on the stores. Finally, Playstation is working on a Game Pass competitor due out in Spring 2022.

We close out the show with our discussion on the future of the metaverse. Something is coming in the future and we don’t know exactly what it is. There are crazy stories of cryptocurrency going out of control, decentralized worlds being created, virtual land selling for millions and people selling their pixel art as NFT’s. We discuss what this could mean for the future of gaming.
