htxt.africast – 2022 is a weird year for gaming

Between the recent delays of Redfall and Starfield, crypto running many parts of the industry, E3 being cancelled, Elden Ring and more, 2022 is shaping up to be one of the weirdest years on the books for gaming, so let’s talk about it in the latest africast.

Before that we have to talk news starting with a trailer for the third volume of Love Death + Robots and its upcoming release. The anthology series has impressed so far and we’re looking forward to a third instalment, especially with the trailer showing us some exciting but familiar ideas.

Then there’s Facebook which can’t stay out of the news as it’s being sued in Kenya over working conditions for moderators. This continues its long line of lawsuits for shocking treatment of people who have to moderate the content on its platform.

Lastly it’s another walking headline in the form of Elon Musk and his continued misadventures in acquiring Twitter. With involvement of governmental bodies and Musk himself expressing doubt, we’ll have to keep waiting to see how this unfolds.

Back to our main topic and Bethesda’s big announcement of delaying Redfall and Starfield has us thinking back over what has happened in 2022 so far and what we’re likely to see before the year ends. Elden Ring is still so dominant after all these months and we highly suspect that its only real rival – God of War Ragnarök – will also be delayed into 2023.

With only Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as the big name releases, the second half of 2022 may not be as exciting as the last few months have been.
