      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: A Space for the Unbound, GoldenEye 007, Final Fantasy VII

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: A Space for the Unbound, GoldenEye 007, Final Fantasy VII

      The longest January in the history of January is finally done. 2023 can finally be set in motion, and we can shift gears to what might be the longest February. In any case, time never stands still with all things retro, and we’ve been treated to some awesomely cool new things this time.

      While we mainly talk about the highly retro side of gaming, we tend to forget that the 90s will fall under that category nowadays. We’ve been drawing inspiration from the most old-school things, and they do help inspire us with newer creative ideas.

      We also like to reminisce on simpler times back when life was much slower and in a good way. We also want to recognize greatness and show appreciation through something nice. Let’s talk about that.

      A Space for the Unbound

      First up, we have to game the looks and feels retro but is newer than your average modern title. We’re talking about A Space for the Unbound. It’s a gorgeous pixel art experience brought to us by Mojiken Studios and produced by Toge Productions. Released in January of this year, the plot of this pixel art masterpiece revolves around teenagers Atma and Ryan and is set very nicely in the late 90s’.

      It takes us on a journey to Indonesia but highlights all of the elements one would find in your favorite Japanese anime. With a compelling story and a gorgeous art style, you’ll likely pick this up if you like slower, less action-packed, slice-of-life titles that add a little bit of the supernatural.

      It’s always nice to unwind now and then, right? So if you’re keen on developing and reliving that feeling of youthful exuberance, then it’s best to check out A Space for the Unbound on your favorite console.


      GoldenEye 007 

      We all love a thrilling action movie, especially if it came from a few decades ago. I’m sure they just hit differently and in more ways than one.

      While the James Bond franchise has been around for the longest time and has yet to wrap things up, we can’t deny how one particular installment made a considerable mark in gaming. Yes, I’m talking about GoldenEye 007.

      The pioneer of competitive first-person shooters. According to many, the Nintendo64 catalog has been on switch online for a while now, and GoldenEye 007 has been a Nintendo fan favorite since it gained popularity way back. Since Nintendo teased it in September last year, everyone’s been waiting. Thankfully the wait is up. Just before January ended, GoldenEye 007 for Switch online came to be. Complete with its glorious full multiplayer expansion.

      Yes, it’s here, and all the now grownup fans can relive its classic competitive PVP whenever they wish whether it’s on the go or your gorgeous widescreen. GoldenEye 007 experience is here, and it’s here to stay. Given that news update, we hope you’re all shaken and not stirred.


      Final Fantasy VII

      Lastly, here is some nice feel-good news, especially if you live in Japan. We all know Final Fantasy and how massive of a franchise. With 15 major titles so far, a variety of spinoffs, and a critically acclaimed MMORPG, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn’t at least heard about it. That being said, we can’t deny that the seventh installment had the most significant impact on mainstream gaming.

      We love our Cloud, our Aerith, and our Sephiroth. With a movie, a remake, and copious amounts of fan art, we can’t deny how massive final Fantasy VII is. So huge that it got its official day. Yes, you heard it. Japan’s anniversary association has officially declared January 31st as the final fantasy VII day.

      While we’re not too keen on the details, like whether or not you don’t have to come in for work, it’s nice that a game with such a legacy now has its place in history. Imagine if you just so happen to be playing Final Fantasy on Final Fantasy VII day, that could be quite the epic story many years from now. An epic story that could be told by the grandkids. Gather around to play final fantasy 30 or 25 at least.

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Chocobo GP, Rainbow Billy & Jack Axe

      Hey Everyone, this is your weekly gaming news!

      We've got a mix of features this week that you should explore for yourself! Three words for this first game: racing, final fantasy, and Switch. The title is Chocobo GP .It's a card game that looks quite a lot like Mario Kart but includes characters from across the Final Fantasy series. Other characters confirmed for the game are Sharoma and Vivi. A lot of the courses will be Final Fantasy inspired and very fitting, as you will be competing against other Final Fantasy characters. You can do this either offline or online like Mario Kart. You will use abilities to knock other racers out in the hopes to reach the finish line first. Now i know it has a lot of similarities to Mario Kart but in Chocobo GP, online tournaments are possible! Competitions with as many as 64 players can happen, the assumption is that these 64 racers will be split into eight groups of eight, with the winners qualifying for an eight person final. No specific date of release for Chocobo GP, only that it's coming to Switch by 2022.

      From one colorful feature to the next ,this is Rainbow Billy The Curse of the Leviathan, a universal coming of age story that explores very relatable themes like empathy compassion inclusion and self-identity. Hopepunk is the exact opposite of Grimdark. Hope Punk games like Rainbow Billy restore faith in the goodness of humanity and send a message that everything is going to be okay. You'll play Rainbow Billy, a fisherman who was out fishing when the evil leviathan cast a spell that washes away all color from the world of imagination. Billy, together with his rainbow-powered fishing boat, try to restore color to the world in a non-violent and empathetic way. Combat in this game equates to dialogue with different creatures. It can appear as a pong-style minigame, where specific symbols have to be hit to create your argument. Winning the creature is over means your team grows with more members to help you save other creatures and restore the world's color. You'll have 60 creatures to collect that vary from cats. walruses, and even unicorns. Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan is now available on PS4 XBox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
