I think Astro’s Playroom will be a one-time packaged game. I’m wrong.
Given that the PS5 has attracted the famous Spider-Man Miles Morales and Demon Soul, it is very surprising that PS5 is my favorite startup game. I think it would be a trick to make some harsh sounds in the DualSense speakers, and then turn the controller to move the robot’s head left and right. What I got was a wonderful ode to PlayStation and the best example of the future of video games.
There is no doubt that Astro’s Playroom is Sony’s original presentation of PS5 to the public and the public at this year’s event, if not for Covid-19. It is the perfect showcase title, which can be played immediately (in terms of ease of playback and loading speed), full of creativity, and enjoyment. What’s not so obvious is how Astro’s Playroom integrates into the nostalgia of PlayStation with such a firm attitude, you can’t help but believe that the development team can survive and make Sony feel excited.
Each new area in each area of the game will bring you a feast for the senses. Whether it’s the tactile raindrops felt through DualSense, the subtle bow-shaped aiming due to the controller gyroscope, or the pressure and squeeze of the R2 trigger when the robot arm crushes a hard trophy, I have never felt more Great sense of connection with games outside of virtual reality. DualSense made me very excited about PS5, even before I played any game with better graphics on the system.
The other side of Astro Playroom, and the real reason I like it, is its many tributes to the history of PlayStation. Hidden around the world are collectibles, which often unlock PlayStation hardware models that have been placed in huge museums over the years. But even better is the cute little robot performing famous games. Everything from Vib Ribbon to Days Gone is played here. When I play each track, it gives me great excitement. Some people may see it as a basic level of fan service, but I don’t care. I love it.
Whenever I encounter a new reenactment, my son will ask this question and I will explain that it feels like giving him a crash course in the past game. And if the game ends in a more suitable ending throughout the upcoming console generation, I will be shocked. The only drawback of Astro’s Playroom is that everything is over, except for a few hours later, I missed some missed collections and speed runs. If Sony feels there is more to add, I will pay more.
If you tell me in early 2020 that my favorite release will be a cute robot game that comes with every PS5, then I will laugh (at least for a short time internally), but in the end there is almost no record of 2020 Year’s activity scale. I’m not sure if I will say whether Astro’s Playroom is worth buying a PS5, but it will make you feel happier about buying a PS5.
Splatoon 2 – Nintendo Switch
I know it only appeared a few years ago, but this year I bought it on my son’s birthday, and it has been a feature of my house ever since. I just dabble myself, but I mainly want to speak up about the incredible soundtrack. I’m sure that the children once said that this is definitely a knock on the door. This is also the best game for kids (and adults) who want the feel of a shooter without the usual violence.
The whole thing is a classic Nintendo, he never simply follows the trend, but goes his own way. Grab the controller, and you will be welcomed by a control scheme that doesn’t match your brain’s rigid expectations of third-person shooters, but ultimately becomes an ideal choice for inkjet games.
Ring Fit Adventure – Nintendo Switch
Like many people, I used lock-in earlier this year to try to be healthy. I first purchased “Ring Fit Adventure”, which is probably the best peripheral game ever (and I own Samba De Amigo and SEGA Bass Fishing on Dreamcast). Enhancing fitness is nothing new. In fact, Ring Fit was not even released in 2020, but Nintendo affirmed it. I feel like I’m taking a risk and I must squat to defeat Drago. I finally found that my time was too short and switched to YouTube fitness videos, and Lockdown One was over, and the school running took over my scheduled fitness time. It’s fair to say that I have been in poor health over the past few months, but in about 10 weeks I have never become healthier or crave a hard plastic ring into my non-existent abdomen.
Ori and the will of the elf – Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch
To be fair, I also mentioned another game released in 2020. If it weren’t for Astro’s Playroom, Ori and Wisps’s wills might get my game of the year. I have rarely played games that feel so right.
Ori is very happy, and the new mechanics introduced in this sequel are excellent. Well, the team at Moon Studio took another gorgeous and emotional adventure. I think Ori did not get the honor it deserves because it is a “Xbox” series product, so if you can, please try it and the original product. I think you will not regret it.
We will post a selection of individual employees next week, so please come back for more information.
