Starfield – What We Know So Far About Bethesda’s Ambitious Space RPG

A Highly Anticipated Launch

Bethesda's space RPG, Starfield, is gearing up for an exclusive release on Xbox Series X, scheduled for September 6, 2023. This launch marks a significant moment for the studio, breaking a 20-year silence in new IP releases and capturing the attention of eager gamers.

Navigating Delays with Dedication

The game's journey to release has encountered delays, with its initial November 11, 2022 launch shifted to the first half of 2023. These delays are a testament to Bethesda's unwavering commitment to delivering players a polished and exceptional experience. Todd Howard, the creative director, personally conveyed his excitement and dedication through a heartfelt video message.

Early Access and Preload Opportunities

For those who can't wait for the official release, pre-order customers can enjoy early access to Starfield starting September 1, 2023. Additionally, players can preload the game on August 17 for Xbox Series X and Windows PC and on August 30 for Steam. For PC players, sufficient storage space of at least 125 GB is recommended.

Exclusivity and Platform Impact

The exclusivity of Starfield to Xbox Series X is a direct result of Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Game Studios. Upon launch, this exclusivity grants access through Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. However, the deal also means that Starfield won't be available on PS4 or PS5, a disappointment for PlayStation users.

Gameplay: A Sneak Peek into the Universe

The gameplay of Starfield was unveiled in a comprehensive 15-minute presentation during the Microsoft and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. This demo provided insights into essential elements such as combat, exploration, storytelling, character customization, and more, giving players a glimpse into the vast and captivating universe.

Beyond Our Solar System: A Cosmic Playground

Starfield's universe, known as 'The Settled Systems,' extends its boundaries beyond our Solar System, covering approximately 50 light years. With over 100 systems and 1,000 planets to explore, players can embark on an awe-inspiring journey through uncharted territory.

An Immersive Backstory

Diving into the lore, Starfield's timeline 'The Story So Far' offers a window into nearly 300 years of in-game events preceding the main storyline. This intricate narrative backdrop enriches the gaming experience, providing a sense of history and context.

Crafting a Narrative: Constellation's Tale

In 2330, Starfield's core narrative unfolds two decades after the tumultuous Colony War between the United Colonies and Freestar Collective. Players assume the roles of Constellation members, a spacefaring organization navigating the aftermath of the war. Choices made by players shape alliances and journey paths, with the main quest boasting a size 20% larger than iconic titles like Skyrim and Fallout 4.

A Fusion of Genres: Gameplay Highlights

Starfield's gameplay seamlessly blends elements from popular science-fiction titles with Bethesda's signature RPG features. This fusion offers players a range of experiences, from open exploration and decision-driven outcomes to piloting spacecraft, managing resources, crafting, constructing bases, and engaging in real-time combat.

Shaping Destiny through Dialogues

Dynamic dialogue and persuasion systems empower players to mold their journeys through skillful negotiation. Adding depth to the experience, ship customization allows players to tailor their vessels to personal preferences, enhancing the immersive gameplay.

Skills, Traits, and Crafting: Crafting the Ultimate Explorer

Crafting, research, skills, and traits play central roles, enhancing gameplay depth. These mechanics offer opportunities for gear enhancements, outpost expansion, and character modifiers that amplify role-play and replayability, allowing players to immerse themselves in the Starfield universe truly.

Powered by Innovation: The Creation Engine 2

Starfield operates on the Creation Engine 2, developed alongside the game itself. This engine represents a leap forward, paving the way for future projects like The Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda's commitment to mod support remains strong, underscoring their dedication to fostering a thriving modding community.

A Solo Adventure in a Multiplayer World

In an era dominated by multiplayer experiences, Starfield is a testament to Bethesda's dedication to delivering a single-player adventure. The game aligns with the core audience seeking immersive narratives and rich storytelling experiences.

Awaits an Uncharted Odyssey

In essence, Starfield signifies a pivotal moment for Bethesda and gamers alike. After years of development and innovation, Starfield's universe promises exploration, narrative depth, and gameplay that pushes the boundaries of traditional RPGs. As the eagerly anticipated release date of September 6 draws near, players worldwide are poised to embark on an extraordinary interstellar odyssey.

Unveiling the Mystique of “Lies of P”: A Bloodborne-Inspired Adventure

Combining the whimsy of Pinocchio with the haunting allure of Bloodborne, "Lies of P" emerges as a captivating and eerie narrative that promises a unique and compelling gaming experience. Stepping into a moody, gothic world reminiscent of FromSoftware's renowned title, the game introduces a dark, thrilling atmosphere that entices players with its enigmatic story and challenging gameplay.

An Unconventional Fusion

The amalgamation of Pinocchio and Bloodborne might seem unconventional, but precisely, this audacious blend sets "Lies of P" apart. The game's somber tone, blood-soaked landscapes, and unmistakable echoes of Bloodborne's style immediately capture attention, infusing a sense of curiosity and intrigue into the narrative. This fusion defies the norm while showcasing the game's innovative vision.

Familiar Yet Novel

Gaming enthusiasts recently had the chance to delve into the opening stages of "Lies of P," offering a tantalizing glimpse into its world and mechanics. The parallels with Bloodborne are palpable, from the atmospheric soundscape to the item pickup cues. However, rather than being derivative, these similarities feel like a nod to a beloved title while maintaining a unique identity.

A Grim Twist on Pinocchio

At the heart of "Lies of P" lies a somber reimagination of Carlo Collodi's classic tale. Unlike the heartwarming Disney version, this rendition transforms Pinocchio into a stoic, wooden figure navigating a world wrought with darkness. The once joyful narrative transforms into a tale of survival, where characters are preoccupied with staying alive rather than breaking into song.

A Gruesome Journey

Venturing into the game's opening stages, players awaken Pinocchio in the desolate city of Krat. Here, the remnants of humanity are under a puppet frenzy orchestrated by the enigmatic Mr. Geppetto. The streets are a gruesome tableau of death, as humans lie strewn across the ground, victims of the puppet onslaught. Amidst the brutality, a certain macabre beauty emerges, brought to life by the game's captivating art direction.

Deception and Divergence

While the opening demo offers only a taste of the narrative, it hints at the complex web of lies that Pinocchio must navigate. The choice-based gameplay introduces the concept of Pinocchio's lies affecting the unfolding story, with decisions resonating beyond face value. A simple lie triggers a mechanical response, alluding to a branching narrative that captivates players' curiosity.

Echoes of Bloodborne in Gameplay

The "Lies of P" gameplay mechanics draw clear inspiration from Bloodborne, featuring high-stakes, high-reward dynamics that encourage strategic aggression. Similarly, the combat style emphasizes the "fight or die" mentality, rewarding offensive maneuvers while punishing cautious play. Weapon styles mirror the Path of the Cricket, Bastard, and Sweeper, each representing unique attributes and scaling.


"Lies of P" presents an intriguing and audacious blend of Pinocchio's tale and Bloodborne's essence. With its eerie ambiance, narrative complexity, and gameplay inspired by a beloved classic, the game stands as a testament to the power of creative fusion in gaming. As players eagerly anticipate the full unveiling of the experience, "Lies of P" promises to unravel a mystery that could captivate both Pinocchio and Bloodborne fans alike.

Top Video Games That Killed Their Franchise

Let's look closely at video game franchises and the instances where things didn't quite go as planned. We'll be exploring those moments where a much-loved series took a bit of a detour and the impact that had on fans. From poor design choices to misguided sequels, these games are cautionary tales in the gaming industry. Let's take a closer look at these unfortunate entries and their impact on the legacy of their franchises.

Deus Ex: Invisible War - A Stealth Misstep

Deus Ex: Invisible War failed to live up to the expectations set by its predecessor. The game needed innovation, streamlined mechanics, and a storyline that disappointed fans. This lackluster entry tarnished the once-beloved cyberpunk franchise, and subsequent attempts to revive the series struggled to recapture its former glory.

Duke Nukem Forever - A Long Overdue Disaster

Duke Nukem Forever holds the dubious distinction of being one of the most infamous examples of a game stuck in development hell. Outdated gameplay mechanics, crude humor that felt out of touch, and a lack of innovation resulted in a game that fell far short of its predecessors. Duke Nukem Forever proved that even legendary franchises can stumble and struggle to adapt to changing times.

Mass Effect: Andromeda - A Galactic Letdown

Technical issues, poor facial animations, and a lackluster storyline overshadowed the game's potential. The once-revered franchise suffered a significant blow as Andromeda failed to capture the magic and impact of its predecessors. Despite subsequent updates and patches, the damage to the franchise's reputation was already done.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) - Speeding into Disaster

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) marked a low point in the iconic blue Hedgehog's gaming career. Numerous glitches, inconsistent controls, and a convoluted storyline plagued the game. Fans and critics panned the game, tarnishing the franchise's reputation for years. Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is a cautionary tale of rushing a game's development and failing to meet expectations.

Star Wars: Battlefront II (2017) - A Dark Side Loot Box Fiasco

Star Wars: Battlefront II faced widespread backlash upon its release due to its implementation of controversial loot box mechanics. Including pay-to-win elements and a heavily criticized progression system led to a massive outcry from the gaming community. The hostile reception dealt a significant blow to the franchise, forcing developers to reevaluate their approach and make substantial changes to salvage the game's reputation.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 - A Failed Grind

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 aimed to revive the beloved skateboarding franchise but fell flat. Feedback from fans was awful due to low-quality graphics, repetitive gameplay, and a need for new ideas. The game lacked the polish and creativity of its predecessors, ultimately contributing to the franchise's decline. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 serves as a reminder that even legendary franchises can stumble when they fail to adapt to changing trends and player expectations.

Bottom Line

These unfortunate examples demonstrate video game franchises' challenges when attempting to meet high expectations and adapt to evolving industry trends. Whether it's a lack of innovation, technical issues, or misguided design choices, these games ultimately contributed to the decline of once-beloved franchises.

However, they also serve as valuable lessons for developers and players, highlighting the importance of careful planning, creativity, and a deep understanding of what makes a franchise successful. As we look to the future, let's hope developers take these cautionary tales to heart, ensuring that beloved franchises can thrive and evolve for years.

The Best and Worst Games of 2023 So Far

We're just about halfway through 2023, and it's already been a massive year for gaming. Some majorly hyped titles have met expectations, while others still need to deliver.

A Plague Tale: Requiem

Undoubtedly, A Plague Tale: Requiem is one of the best games of 2023 so far. This follow-up to the highly acclaimed A Plague Tale: Innocence returns us to the sad and rat-infested realm of Amicia and Hugo. Requiem, the sequel to the first game, takes the siblings' struggle for survival to new heights in 14th-century France. Several years have passed since their initial journey.

Requiem delivers an emotional, action-packed story combined with improved gameplay and visuals. The lighting, textures, and animations are incredibly detailed and immersive. Stealth gameplay with swarms of rats requires intelligent resource management. For fans of narrative-driven adventure games, A Plague Tale: Requiem is a must-play.

Elden Ring

FromSoftware's punishing yet rewarding action RPG Elden Ring has already cemented itself as a game of the year contender in 2023. This expansive dark fantasy title transports players to the realm of the Lands Between. It allows you to explore its secrets at your own pace.

With its sprawling open world, unique characters, thrilling boss fights, and customization options, Elden Ring offers incredible replayability. Once you overcome its steep initial learning curve, you'll be unable to take your eyes off its addictive gameplay loop and cryptic lore. The game Elden Ring is a remarkable example of intricate world-building and intense combat.

God of War Ragnarök

Santa Monica Studio's God of War Ragnarök has set a new bar for storytelling and spectacle in adventure games. This sequel concludes Kratos and Atreus' Norse saga epically with show-stopping set-pieces and impactful narrative payoffs.

Ragnarök doubles down on the series' signature axe-throwing combat while expanding the RPG mechanics. Along with the heartfelt dynamic between Kratos and Atreus, it's easy to get invested in their final confrontation against Norse gods like Thor and Odin. God of War Ragnarök will be a watershed moment for cinematic gaming.

Hogwarts Legacy

Now on to some of 2023's biggest gaming disappointments so far. Hogwarts Legacy stands out as one of the most controversial and unsatisfying titles. The Harry Potter prequel RPG had high fan expectations but was ultimately bogged down by repetitive gameplay, bugs, and a lack of magic.

While exploring the castle and Hogwarts grounds was novel initially, the mission structure became predictable and bland. The combat and RPG systems also needed more depth to sustain interest in the campaign. For an RPG set in such an imaginative universe, Hogwarts Legacy failed to deliver an engaging adventure worthy of the Harry Potter name.

Overwatch 2

Blizzard's switch from the original Overwatch to the free-to-play Overwatch 2 has been full of issues. Aside from server problems and launch woes, the transition to 5v5 gameplay has been widely divisive in the Overwatch community.

By lowering team sizes, removing stuns, and reworking heroes, Overwatch 2 encourages more of a chaotic deathmatch style over the strategic team play that defined its predecessor. On top of that, the overbearing monetization scheme and painfully slow battle pass progress have left many players disillusioned with the sequel. Overwatch 2 still shows promise, but Blizzard has much more work.

Bottom Line

While there's still plenty more gaming excitement and disappointments in 2023, these have been clear standouts. We'll have to see what's in store for the rest of the year!
