So Far This Week: 6/20/17

First off, welcome to Pixlbot’s new way to deliver news! On a set Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday schedule, “So Far This Week”, “The Mid Week Update”, and “Weekly Wrap-up” will deliver what we thought was the most interesting news of the week so far. Sometimes there might be tons, sometimes just a bit. But lets get started.

FINAL FANTASY XV – Episode Prompto hits the game June 27th.

Taking place about mid-way through the game, Episode Prompto will tell the story of what exactly happened while he was separated. With the below quote being the info we’ve been given, I can’t wait to finally play as the character that seemed to get the most development in the entire game.

“Separated from the group and alone in the arctic, Prompto fights to discover the truth of his origin. Take down enemies with bazookas, ride the snowmobile, and snap selfies along the way!”

Now please, just make me care about Lady Lunafreya?

Detroit: Become Human not hitting the great lake shores until 2018.

In a GameSpot interview, director David Cage has confirmed that the game will not be making a 2017 launch, and instead will hit in 2018. He goes on to state that ” he wants the player to be Detroit’s co-writer, co-director, and co-star to how real-world issues, including terrorism, affected the game’s story.” You can read the entire GameSpot interview here.

Personally, the more polish the better.

Updated Stability, JoyCon location tools, new Splatoon 2 icons for profiles, the ability to add 3DS and Wii U friends via the Switch, the ability to plug a pro controller directly into the USB of the dock, and more.

You can find the entire changelog here, but personally, this feels like a step in the right direction.

Dream Daddy announcement reveal

Published by the Game Grumps (who also provide voices for the game) and written by Vernon Shaw (of Hot Pepper Gaming fame), Dream Daddy is..well let me let them explain it:
“Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is a game where you play as a Dad and your goal is to meet and romance other hot Dads. Are you ready? Hi ready, I’m Dad.”

It sounds super weird and kinky, but the actual game looks to be about real love and supporting different gameplay playstyles. I dunno about you guys, but I’m excited.
