The Day Tonight presents Bravely Advancing: A Bravely Default II playthrough!
In the middle of a persistent frost, Caspius and SiliconNooB dig through an avalanche of news, finding therein not only the customary hibernal frigidity, but also a few optimistic reports which will warm the heart in anticipation of the vernal season.
Microsoft makes an about-face, Nintendo is sued, and Square Enix files trademarks which look quite similar to Compilation of Final Fantasy VII titles, causing the panel to speculate whether that suggests an intention to reimagine the entire franchise.
Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis consider Cyberpunk 2077, and take a hard-nosed look at the development of game licensing, from its origins as funding for consumer-focused quality assurance systems, to its modern incarnation as a tax on developers.
With the end of the year approaching, the rush is on for developers to delay their incomplete games and abandon their unrealisable projects, with mentions this week for Bravely Default II, Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6, Halo Infinite, Everwild, and Diablo IV.
