Games Awards, VR Showcase and Pokemon gets patched
The 2022 Game awards will be held on Friday December 9 at 10.30am – 1.30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. There are 31 award categories including Game of the Year, Best Indie, Most Anticipated Game, Innovation in Accessibility and Best Art Direction.
In addition to this there is the game awards future class, ‘50 inspiring individuals who represent the bright, bold and inclusive future of video games’.
Composer Maize Wallen and designer Chantal Ryan are two Australians that have been included in the 2022 Game Awards Future class list.
Chantal Ryan is the Director of the game development studio ‘We have always lived in the Forest’ and produces ‘experimental narrative games and systems built upon disruptive language technologies’.
Maize Wallen has produced audio for games such as God Fall, Receiver 2, Wayward Strand and Cosmic Express. Their focus is 3D spatialised audio and dynamic music.
A whopping 1GB patch was made available on the 1st of December – Nintendo’s support website stating that the patch includes season 1 of ranked battles, fixing an issue that caused music to not play correctly during the elite four and top champion battle and lastly, other select bug fixes.
They have also acknowledged that many players may encounter issues that affect the games performance. Given that this has been the buggiest pokemon game ever released, this is an understatement.
