MOOD SWINGS
By JAY TEE

MOOD SWINGS?

Besides being the obvious side effect to a hormonal outburst, ‘Mood Swings’ is an editorial crafted by our editor Jay Tee, alongside contributions from the JTGA team. It’s like a series of extended tweets, ranting or raving about something terrible / great that has happened in the world of gaming.

It’s a collection of random musings designed to provide a snapshot of what we’re doing, things you should be excited for, and stuff to avoid as you navigate the choppy waters of this wonderfully unpredictable hobby.

Anything, from reactions to a new game announcement, surprising breaking news, to our cat just nibbled our thumb sticks, can be found here. Each “Mood Swing” will be tagged with either a green, yellow, or red Tarp badge. This represents a visual indicator of our reaction.

NAILED IT - The return of the Settlers would normally be big enough news to get me excited, but a collection of the first seven games, AND a shadow drop of the first title available right now… Well done Ubisoft. They clearly have great reverence for this series, and confirmation of a current gen sequel is a clear statement of intent. This seemed to be coming from a genuine place of love. Plus, withholding the reveal for Gamescom was a smart play; this is exactly the kind of thing that would get buried in the noise of E3. - JAY TEE

Ubisoft announced something without a cringe inducing pratfall or forced emotion. Yay!

THE FINAL FRONTIER - I’m a huge fan of Housemarque games. Dead Nation, Resogun, Alienation… all instant classics for me, with countless hours invested. Stormdivers is a clear departure for them: a multiplayer battle royale. You can see touchstones to their previous work; their environmental / weather effects are best in the biz, but I’m worried. Housemarque themselves have admitted that this radical departure is in response to the tepid commercial figures for their last couple of releases. Here’s hoping this isn’t an ‘all or bust’ deal… - JAY TEE

HERE’S MY NOPE CARD - The Gamescom episode of Inside Xbox wasn’t very good. It really wasn’t. We got a release date for the Master Chief Collection being added to Game Pass, but we already knew it was coming at E3. A press release would have sufficed. Then they recapped all the recent Game Pass games that have already come out. Without announcing new ones. It was a compilation of stilted interviews, flubbed auto cue’s, and constant bundle advertising. NO-ONE watching that show didn’t already have an Xbox! Dreadful! - JAY TEE

THE SETTLERS HISTORY COLLECTION (PC)

Vague screenshots aside, I have high hopes for this. I love the tech design in the reveal trailer from Gamescom. I so want this to be a hit!

Stop. Cutting. To Bundles. Seriously. Why?!
