Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I’ve started playing Fitness Boxing and I also bought Ring Fit Adventure, both for Nintendo Switch. I’m really enjoying Fitness Boxing‘s workouts, which are motivational, brief, and set to music like Carly Rae Jepsen, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson. I’m replaying the story mode of both GTA V and Watch Dogs 2 after trying out GTA Online and realizing how much of a grind it is to make money through its businesses, such as gunrunning and selling vehicles. I also started Neo Cab, which has been racking up accolades.
We heard Neo Cab is a finalist in this year's Mobile Games Awards… “Best Storytelling” and, uhhh… “Game of the Year”?! 🙇♀️

Bayonetta and Vanquish Remastered
Bayonetta and Vanquish are both getting 4K remastered versions for PS4 and Xbox One. I’ve played a few hours of Vanquish (it’s available on Steam) and it’s a very fun shooter best known for its “rocket slide” mechanic, where you basically zoom really fast along the ground, kind of like Iron Man. I’m looking forward to playing the remaster. The remastered Bayonetta and Vanquish will release on February 18, 2020.
BioShock Game in Development
The next BioShock game is being developed by Cloud Chamber, a new studio from publisher 2K Games. However, the game is “several years” away.
As of December 10, Minecraft on PS4 has cross-platform play.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a card-battler game in the Elder Scrolls franchise, has ceased development and canceled its console launch. Its online and single-player modes are still playable, though.
It looks like Sony and Activision have been hinting at a new Crash Bandicoot game. More possible news on this may be available after PlayStation’s final State of Play this year on December 10 and The Game Awards on December 12.
The creator of the Danganronpa series has a new upcoming mystery game announced, titled Death Come True. No release date has been announced yet.
