Naughty Dog: Deathloop, It Takes Two and Fortnite are the favourite games of 2021

With the end of this year, the annual list of 2021 favourite games returns from Naughty Dog team members, who admit that “ 2021 has been a great year, both as developers and as players! “. The team certainly needs no introduction. This is the developer who created the Uncharted sagas and The Last of Us, two of the most prolific and popular in the modern landscape of action adventures.

What are, however, the titles that have conquered the minds behind one of the reference studios of the videogame world? The site page starts immediately with a big surprise, that is Bugsnax! Loved by Deputy Director Christian Girling and his daughter who says, “ This was a unique and fantastic game that managed to bring me and my 7 year old daughter together. We worked together and took turns. The different insects and all their special strengths and weaknesses made the game a truly addicting adventure / puzzle. #WouldBuyAgain “.

Death loop also managed to win over very important people with game directors Matthew Gallant, Kurt Margenau and development director Waylon Brinck appointing Deathloop! The comments are very enthusiastic and say: “ Setting up an immersive sim in a time loop was a brilliant idea. Each space visited and revisited becomes richer as you acquire new tools, new information and new things to appreciate thanks to the environmental narrative “. Or again: ” The breath of fresh air from the universe is what really caught me, at a time when so many games feel like ‘more of the same “.

Game director Anthony Newman is betting on Fortnite, admitting that: “ When I started working on this multiplayer project, I had a very superficial opinion of Fortnite as something that was a mere toy for teenagers, a fad that was popular only thanks to Drake. How wrong I was! Fortnite is truly inspiring! “

Not least is It Takes Two, the recent winner of the Best Game of the Year award at The Game Awards 2021. It was chosen by Rochelle Snyder, Senior Communication Manager of Naughty Dog, who defined it as a sort of “ gift ” for her family. “ We spent hours on the couch laughing, planning, and occasionally giving directions to each other. What a gift Hazelight Studios has given us, absolutely superb “.

Continuing on the page we then find Frostpunk, and the last chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology, House of Ashes. Finally, we find Metroid Dread, praised by Wasim Khan, director of character technology, who wrote: “ Metroid Dread blows you away with its satisfying gameplay and dark atmosphere, all while telling an extremely engaging story. “

The last game on the list is Returnal, which has come into the good graces of deputy director Arne Meyer and Jeremy Yates, the animation director who crown it game of the year, commenting: ” A wonderful mix of beauty and horror, Returnal has created a world in which I lost myself. for countless hours during 2021. It was a masterpiece in design efficiency and created a truly addicting gameplay loop that made my heart pound and sweat my hands. “

Naughty Dog concludes by wishing all of us happy holidays and thanking all the fellow developers who have made this 2021 so video game exciting. What were, however, your favourite titles of this last year?

Lego celebrates bricks tomorrow will be world day

Tomorrow will be World Lego Day. As a symbolic date, the day on which the first patent relating to the legendary colored bricks was filed by Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, son of Ole, the founder of the company. The patent was filed on January 28, 1958, to be precise, but it is interesting to observe that the Lego brand already existed for more than 20 years. Ole Kirk Christiansen, in fact, was a carpenter who had named his handcrafted wooden toy store as such. “Lego” comes from a typical Danish phrase, namely “Leg Godt”, which roughly means “play well”.

1958 was the decisive year for Lego: the company, which in the meantime had evolved and expanded and had begun to adopt plastic as a raw material alongside wood, took five years to find the right combination of materials, molds, and measures of the interlocking system of the bricks to guarantee the right compromise between usability, stability, and versatility.

Lego has always had an extremely high standard of quality: tolerances are practically zero and systems to make sure that each brick is exactly as expected are very sophisticated. This obsession with quality has been one of the winning elements that have allowed the group to establish itself on the market, even at the expense of objectively not exactly popular prices: how many times have you found a defective or missing piece in a pack? We bet the vast majority of you enthusiasts will answer “zero”.

Due to their extremely versatile nature, in which very few are the limits beyond the player’s imagination, Legos have become a fundamental part of popular culture that goes far beyond the “children’s toy” context in which they were born. We’ve done everything with it – working table lamps, covers, and even complete computer cases, customizable mechanical keyboards, and even a 1:1 scale reproduction of a Bugatti Chiron and a Lamborghini Sìan.

In fact, we could say that recognizing and satisfying slightly more grown-up fans has been one of the key factors that have allowed the company to grow further over the past few years. We could identify at least three key initiatives in this sense:

  • The development of sets specifically aimed at adults: made not necessarily to play with, but to be displayed as an ornament, carefully choosing the subjects and dimensions based on popular cultural trends with the reference target. Let’s think, for example, of the Architecture line (the Eiffel Tower even exceeds 10,000 pieces), of the very recent Botanical Collection, or of the iconic car and vehicle models such as the Bugatti Chiron, the Porsche 911 Gt3 RS, the Vespa or the Fiat 500.
  • Partnerships with brands and franchises are super popular and appreciated in popular culture and beyond. From here were born strands such as Lego Star Wars (especially the huge and very expensive Ultimate Collector Series), Lego Harry Potter, and the most famous vehicles in the history of cinema (from the legendary DeLorean in Back to the Future to Dom Toretto’s Dodge Charger in Fast & Furious, passing through the Ecto-1 of the Ghostbusters and the Tumbler of Batman).
  • Engage the community with the Lego Ideas initiative, where the most interesting projects of ordinary enthusiasts are transformed into real and mass-produced sets. Absolute masterpieces have come from here, including the reproduction of the typewriter, the house of Mom I Lost the Plane, the NASA Apollo Saturn V rocket, and the Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.
  • And then of course there are all the parallel initiatives that expand the brand into other contexts, especially the cinematographic/television one (The Lego Movie is particularly appreciated!), video game (the very recent success of the Lego Star Wars saga).

In short, the advance of the Danish bricks seems intent on anything but stopping. And what better way to celebrate them than building a beautiful set? We already have a precise plan:

The Last of Us Remake Game Can Be Played For Free, It's Really Easy!

Taking advantage of the hype of The Last of Us series that is currently busy on HBO, Sony is giving fans the opportunity to play The Last of Us Remake game for free. However, there are several conditions that gamers must pass.

Previously, The Last of Us series made the game more widely known. After getting the praise, many fans then returned to playing the game to repeat the hype and storyline of the zombie series.

Quoted Game Byte, Sunday (22/1/2023), Sony then offered a free trial for The Last of Us: Part 1. The original game was released for PS3 in 2013 before being remastered for PS4 in 2014.

For some games, this apocalyptic classic from Naughty Dog is considered one of the best games of all time. However, to play The Last of Us: Part 1 for free, there are conditions that must be met.

You must subscribe to PlayStation Plus at the Premium tier. Unfortunately, just subscribing to the Essential or Extra tier won’t give you access to the trial (demo).

That said, The Last of Us: Remastered was offered at a basic subscription level in October 2019. Additionally, it is also part of the PlayStation Plus Collection on PlayStation 5.

The trial of The Last of Us remake will be playable for two hours. During that time, you will have access to the entire game. However, that won’t be enough to finish the game, so of course it’s called a trial.

In part 1, it might take you around 15 to 20+ hours to finish the story. But, even so, you will still be able to get a trophy if you successfully complete the game completely. How do you want to try?

Cinematic League of Legends 2023 Flooded with Blasphemy

It has been a tradition since 2018 for Riot Games to release a cinematic video to open the new season of the game League of Legends.

To the extent that many fans have been waiting for this video because of the excellent visual quality of the CG, music, and storytelling.

However, this year it seems that Riot Games have disappointed many fans because the cinematic video for Season 2023 did not meet many people’s expectations.

The reason is that in this year’s cinematic video, Riot Games only displays cinematics from the LoL map, namely Summoner’s Rift with only background music and dubbing.

Even though the visuals are still very good, the cinematic this time feels empty because there is no story-telling and action from Champions as usual in previous cinematic videos.

As a result, because it received a lot of criticism, Riot Games provided clarification. They stated that this happened because there were unexpected conditions that forced them to find alternatives to make videos this year.
