Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom has been waiting for some time and unfortunately even more waiting time has been added. Fortunately, there are also positive messages in this N8W8: lots of presents in demo form, for example.
It’s December 15th. Today in 1989 Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened Star Tours, today in 2004 the Efteling opened the Little Match Girl (yep…) and today in 1973 the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the list of mental abnormalities. Yes, beat that today! De Wacht will inspire you with this well-stocked N8W8. Welcome!
New game called Afterparty revealed
The Guard was already on a train full of drunken Christmas party visitors, so it seems that the developer of Oxenfree has picked just the right time to unveil his new game: Afterparty. Night School Studio makes this point-and-click adventure about two friends who must avoid going to hell by playing a drinking game with the devil. The more they drink the better. Always great when games can represent real life so realistically, don’t you think? This drinking game is expected in 2019.
Ni No Kuni postponed to March
Ni No Kuni’s sequel, Revenant Kingdom, has been delayed. It won’t be January: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be in stores on March 23. A bit of a shame to wait any longer, but rather a game with the finishing touches than one that has been released full of stress, with all the consequences that entails, right?
Steep: Road to the Olympics winners get to the Olympics
Remember Steep, that realistic, beautiful winter sports game? Well, hopefully you still play it and you are good at it, because if you participate in the Road to the Olympics promotion you could just win a trip to the Olympic Games PyeongChang 2018. You have to play the latest expansion of the game for that. Check this website for more information.
Yay, a new trailer for Metal Gear Survive
In the new single-player of Metal Gear Survive you have to fight hard. But there’s more, and you’ll see a little more of that in the new trailer:
New Deadpool 2 movie poster
One of the funniest superheroes, Deadpool, returns. Last month, Deadpool picked up Bob Ross’s brush for the teaser and now the new movie poster is out with yet another reference to something from the olden days:
New Monster Hunter World trailer full of cute creatures
The Guard has yet to recover from the sheer number of cute creatures in the new Star Wars, but there’s no time for that! A trailer of Monster Hunter Worldinjustice has appeared that shows more of the Palico buddies. And they are very funny. January 26th, Monster Hunter World will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a later PC release.
Company of Heroes 2 is free with Humble
It’s Christmas so we want presents! We get that today from Humble, because they are giving away free Steam keys for the RTS Company of Heroes 2. Completely free, forever yours! Check it out here.
Holiday event Fortnite live
Gifts, because Fortnite is in the party mood too. There is a special event in PvE Save the World mode, more of which you can see in the trailer.
A new Star Citizen update is out
How do you make sure that an object in a game moves realistically? In the new update of Star Citizen, in which the developers go all out on how to make this game look as realistic as possible
The trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 is here
Telltale has announced that the final episode of the second season of Minecraft: Story Mode will be called Above and Beyond and will be released on December 19. The Guard won’t spoil what it’s about. The trailer does give you a bit more guidance:
A Destiny 2 comic is coming!
Comics are great and Destiny 2 gets one, Bungie writes in a blog post. The comic is called Fall of Osiris and is created by Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl). The comic book will be made available digitally for free on Bungie’s website. When exactly is still unknown. What has been announced is that The Dawning will start on December 19 and will continue until January 9. The Dawning is the winter wonderland for The Farm and The Tower, where you can have snowball fights. If you know the Guard a little bit, then you know what she’s thinking about now …
Release date for Neverwinter Sword of Chult on console
The Sword of Chult expansion has been out on PC for a while, but the consoles have yet to come. Hence, developer Cryptic Studios has been working hard on this release on consoles, which will eventually come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 9th. In Chult, you’ll join five other players in a Skirmish called The Merchant Prince’s Folly, where you can expect new enemies, locations and a completely customized PVP.
Adventure Time gets new game in 2018
Cartoon Network’s animated series Adventure Time will be discontinued, but not before another game is released. In 2018, our heroes board a pirate ship after the Land of Ooo gets frozen. Could you get as drunk in it as you did in Sea of Thieves? Think about that for a while, because the game won’t be released until the spring of 2018.
Free Paris Mission Hitman
Another Christmas present then? Starting today, all gamers who boot Hitman on their PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can enjoy the Paris Mission, plus a free Prologue Mission. Claim the Paris mission before January 5th, otherwise it will go back to full price.
So, surely the Guard isn’t Sinterklaas ?! Time to work, go to school and countdown hard, because the weekend is just around the corner. Have fun with the porgs and have a nice day today!
