Horizon Forbidden West is delayed until 2022, Half Life 2 Remaster appears in SteamDB, and Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water coming to multiple platforms on 28 Oct 2021.

Horizon Forbidden West Delayed

Horizon Forbidden West, one of the highly anticipated games of 2021, has been met with a bit of disappointing news. The game has been delayed until 2022, which has left many fans eagerly awaiting its release. However, this delay is not without its reasons. The developers at Guerrilla Games want to ensure that the game is polished to perfection before it reaches the hands of players, which is a commendable decision.

We have discussed this topic in previous episodes, highlighting the importance of allowing developers the necessary time to refine their games. In an industry that often pushes for quick turnarounds and release dates, it is a breath of fresh air to see developers prioritizing quality over punctuality. This delay shows their commitment to delivering an exceptional gaming experience.

But what does this mean for those who haven't experienced the original game yet? Well, this delay provides them with the perfect opportunity to dive into Horizon Zero Dawn, the first installment in the series. Even though Horizon Zero Dawn was released during the PlayStation 4 era, its visual beauty and engaging gameplay still hold up to this day. In fact, the game has recently been made available on PC, expanding its reach to an even wider audience.

Speaking from personal experience, I can attest to the greatness of Horizon Zero Dawn. I was completely captivated by its immersive open-world environment, fascinating storyline, and challenging combat. So much so that I earned the Platinum Trophy on the original PlayStation 4 version. Every second spent playing Horizon Zero Dawn was an absolute delight, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a thrilling gaming experience.

Half Life 2 Remaster

In other gaming news, Half Life 2 Remaster has caught the attention of the gaming community. The Steam Database recently revealed indications of a remastered version of the beloved game. Half Life 2 holds a special place in the hearts of gamers, including myself. I remember playing it when I was a teenager, around 17 years ago. It was a groundbreaking game that pushed the boundaries of storytelling and gameplay mechanics.

Half Life and Half Life 2 are regarded as iconic titles in the world of gaming, and many fans have longed for the release of Half Life 3. While a remaster doesn't necessarily fulfill that desire, it's still an exciting prospect to revisit Half Life 2 with improved graphics and possibly enhanced gameplay. Only time will tell if this news holds true, but for now, it has ignited a spark of hope among Half Life enthusiasts.

Fatal Frame MoBW

Lastly, we have news concerning Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. This game, which was previously exclusive to Nintendo platforms, is now making its way to PC, Xbox, and PlayStation on October 28, 2021. This announcement comes alongside a trailer showcasing the newer version of the game, featuring higher resolution visuals and potentially other enhancements.

Fatal Frame has always been known for its chilling atmosphere and unique gameplay mechanics centered around capturing ghosts with a camera. With this remaster, players on various platforms will have the opportunity to experience the haunting tale of Maiden of Black Water. As a PlayStation 5 owner, I am particularly excited to play this game during the Halloween season, as it promises to deliver a spooky and thrilling experience.

In conclusion, while the delay of Horizon Forbidden West may have disappointed fans eagerly awaiting its release, it demonstrates the developer's commitment to delivering a polished and exceptional game. This delay also provides an opportunity for newcomers to immerse themselves in the first installment, Horizon Zero Dawn, which is a highly recommended experience. Additionally, the potential remaster of Half Life 2 and the upcoming release of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water on multiple platforms offer exciting prospects for gamers. The future of gaming seems bright, filled with captivating experiences for players across different platforms.
