Hello everyone, it’s been another decent week of gaming. As always, I’ll get to what I’ve been up to, but first I would like to get to some random gaming news out there. Basically, I wanted to make a comment about several news outlets talking about Bethesda possibly releasing The Elder Scrolls VI in 2019. No, just no. Sorry, but this one isn’t happening. The Elder Scrolls games are pretty massive, it’s unrealistic to think that unless it’s already been worked on for a few years that it’ll be ready to release in either 2019 or 2020. As far as I know, development of The Elder Scrolls VI hasn’t even started yet. And I’m still expecting Starfield to release before that anyways. Now, if someone was to say that Starfield was going to come out in 2019 OR 2020, then yes…I could see that being a possibility. But as for The Elder Scrolls VI – I just don’t think it’s coming anytime soon. If anything, I would say that it probably depends on when Starfield releases. If Starfield releases in late 2019, then I believe that The Elder Scrolls VI would probably release in 2021. I’d realistically expect it to be close to the launch window of the next generation of consoles. But honestly, that’s me guessing. Anyways, with that out of the way…here are the games that I’ve been playing.
So starting off with something that I’ve been messing around with for a bit, I had been trying out the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch. I honestly had tried this out before on the PlayStation 4, but found it to be frustratingly difficult. It honestly still feels hard on the Nintendo Switch. I can’t really remember much about the Crash Bandicoot series back on the original PlayStation. I don’t really remember much of the first and second games, but, I at least remember Crash Bandicoot: Warped. I’ll probably make another comment on this one in the future after I’ve had a chance to play them all, but as for now, I’ll just say that these games are pretty dang hard.
So outside of that, I was playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch. I’m honestly mostly unfamiliar with this port. I have heard that it’s not the greatest, with some recurring problems that had never been patched. So, I’ll probably write something more about this one when I can. I’ve put in a substantial amount of time thus far, and…I’ve honestly found it to be okay. It isn’t perfect by any means, but, at least it works…for the most part. See, I’ve had it crash on me on multiple occasions – this is something that I find incredibly irritating. I believe that there is no excuse for games crashing on consoles, it’s frustrating and annoying. The game is mostly fine, it’s Skyrim. But, yeah…it’s not a perfect port.
So, that about does it. Oh…before I forget, I wanted to also mention that I was just going to call my Monday update posts something generic and boring from now on. I know…I know, it’s not fun. But hey, something simple still gets the message across…right? Yeah, I’m sure it does. So really that’s it for now. I’ll probably write more about Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch in the future. As for now, that’s really all I had to say. Anyways, I hope what I had to say was worthwhile. And I will get back here as soon as I can. Thank you and have a great week.
