Weeks just keep flying by…
So let’s not waste any time! Here’s the major news in gaming for the week:
SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY
Sorry, but I’m actually really excited for this game to come out…eventually. Since the thing was revealed to us simultaneously with the Switch, E3 was the first time that we got to see anything terribly substantial revealed to us about the game.
But we did get a good look with a good twenty minutes of gameplay and a new trailer, both showcasing a lot of the cool features that will be included in the game as well as a couple worlds that we basically got to see played all the way through!
Bringing back the open-world/level design all the way from Super Mario 64, and spicing it up with new ways to get around (including taking control of s**t like dinosaurs and taxis!) this game is going to shape up to be a rousing success! But then again, Nintendo’s never been one to skimp on their Mario games.
Odyssey is set to release this October on the 27th, so shake the dust off your caps and grow out your mustaches, this is gonna be a good one!
Here’s the link to the article I wrote with all the details.
X THE XBOX
Microsoft finally revealed their mid-generation beast of a console at this year’s E3!
Although I’m not a big fan of the name, It actually looks like it’ll be pretty good. The thing is smaller and sleeker than the original Xbox One, and it even puts the size of the compact Xbox One S to shame! It’s literally the smallest thing ever, take a look:
Of course, we won’t actually know if Microsoft f****d up until November 7th, but I think that this console will hold true and maybe even blow the PS4 Pro out of the water.
GOING BACK TO THE ORIGINS
Though it wasn’t the highlight of the Ubi conference, more information about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game Origins set in ancient Egypt.
All this right here? It’s gonna be included in the Dawn of the Creed Legendary Collectors edition of the game which is going to run you about $800.
Don’t want to spend that much? Yeah, I don’t either. Which is why there are going to be multiple price points for various versions of the game ranging from the base game at $60 to versions at $70, $160, $110, and $120 each containing their own variety of extra stuff to make it worth your money.

IT’S YOUR DESTINY…2
Earlier this week, Kotaku conducted an interview with Destiny 2 director Luke Smith, who let us in on some of the details on the game, as well as some of the ideas behind the universe they’ve created.
Discussion topics ranged from Bungie not knowing exactly what the Darkness actually is, to explaining the new map features, and how the worlds are going to be a hell of a lot better in every single way from the original game.
So if you’re excited about the next chapter in this epically fun story, then check out my article right here, I go over the interview and explain everything and my opinion.
IT’S A FAR CRY…
…5. This next game in the series takes you away from the vast wilderness the previous games had you wandering through, and takes you to a more rural/suburban area conquered by a religious/militaristic cult that has Hope County locked down from any outsiders, especially the government.
You, with the help of a hired gun, pilot, and dog, will take back the county and disband the cult for good! Check out the article and the trailer here.
BEYOND WAITING FOR A SEQUEL
In addition to everything else Ubisoft revealed this past week, there was the long-awaited sequel to the hit action-adventure game, Beyond Good and Evil. Not much is known about it yet aside from that it’s going to be set in a time before the birth of the heroine of the original game. But at least we got one hell of a trailer to gawk at in the meanwhile!
Check out the trailer in the article here.
That’s the news for this week!
