Ultimate Gaming Newsletter: February 2nd, 2022

January has come to an end and we’re winding up for a February full of fun remasters and games that have been in development since we were still bottle-feeding. Life is Strange is a game series that has messed people up so much emotionally that there are countless coping threads on Reddit. Everyone has a character in Life is Strange that speaks to them on a personal level.

News for Dying Light 2 came out two presidents ago, and we thought the world would end before its development process saw as much controversy as Activision Blizzard’s. Fortunately. Dying Light 2 is just around the corner and we can’t wait to get into some human-on-human-on-zombie violence.

Life is Strange Remastered Collection

Life is Strange, from the same people who brought you a spiky-haired cross-dressing man with a big sword, brings you remastered visuals for a game that already hurts our feelings. After we’re done crying after returning to Arcadia Bay through two award-winning titles, we can appreciate the fact that Life is Strange Remastered Collection brought us:

  • Better character animation so we can truly immerse ourselves in sadness
  • Updated puzzles so we can take a break from the sadness
  • Upgrades to the lightning so we can see the sadness even more
  • A bonus episode that will surely make us rethink all our life choices

Seriously, the graphics are what make this remaster even more exciting. More expressive animations, better lip-syncing, and improved hair physics in the big cry game? Sign us up.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human

Dying Light 2 was revealed in 2018, and there was so much promise. We were so hyped for the game, only for them to tell us absolutely nothing while getting embroiled in controversies. Now, Dying Light 2 Stay Human has a release date, and it’s right around the corner.

We’re finally going to parkour through a city where we get to smash the skulls of other people as much as we are zombie skulls. The world is ever-changing, and your experience will depend largely on decisions you make throughout the game.

What’s even cooler is we’re going to have even more opportunities for The Office-style parkour as it the moves will expand to include things, we didn’t even know the human body could do.

Dying Light 2 will also feature vehicles again as the original did in the later parts of the game, but it won’t be the core of the game.

Life is Strange Remastered Collection cries its way onto the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on February 1 with Dying Light 2 Stay Human parkouring its way onto the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC three days later on February 4.
