Good thing we are starting on April 4th, because we do not have to deal with all the terrible April Fool’s Jokes that gaming companies try to pull every year. Seriously, there is absolutely no creativity anymore from the social media managers trying to get a cheap laugh with clearly obvious bait. Fortunately, the two games we are mentioning this week are very real.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
The LEGO games are normally known for being pretty linear. There is nothing more you want out of a block-building game than being told what to do with those blocks. Maybe that’s why Minecraft was so popular? Anyway, unlike the most recent Skywalker Saga in the movies, we do not have to play that at all if we do not want to. Let us be honest, we would only play the Force Awaken’s part of the game if it were a complete parody of the movies that we will not mention here.
Each episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will take a couple of hours if you are not a completionist. If you are a completionist who wants to 100% the game and get every collectible or discover every LEGO puzzle the game inevitably offers, then more power to you. As you progress through the game’s story, you will get to explore more planets in the game.
Despite this being a LEGO game, it has some pretty crisp graphics. The LEGOs themselves look so real as if you were holding them in your hand. Fans of Star Wars, LEGO, and not the most recent Star Wars trilogy should pick up LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on the PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on April 5th, 2022.
Godfall, the game that Sony was pushing as its next big thing. Now, it is going to show up on the competing console because that makes sense. Godfall looked so promising, but it was one of the lowest-rated PlayStation 5 exclusives. In fact, it was one of the lowest-rated PlayStation games in general. Maybe the April Fool was Sony saying “Haha, JK, we always meant to release Godfall on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
Want to rub more salt into the wounds of those who took sides in the current generation console war? Godfall will have exclusive enhancements specific to the Xbox Series X such as Dolby Vision and a Variable Refresh Rate; the latter the PS5 does not even support. Not only that, but let us make it somehow worse: Godfall’s Xbox version will cost less than the PS5 price. Let us just hope there’s crossplay so there can be an increase in players. Godfall comes out on April 7th for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
