We’re already one month into 2023, but with eleven months still to go, we thought now would be a good time to look ahead to what’s shaping up to be a surprisingly busy year in video games. While there are plenty of titles that will likely get delayed into 2024 or beyond, even the first half of 2023 is full of titles Sean and Jonathan are both extremely excited for, from the Resident Evil 4 remake to Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, to the June triptych of Diablo IV, Street Fighter 6, and Final Fantasy XVI. And of course, Nintendo has The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, a direct follow-up to one of the most acclaimed games of our lifetime, coming in May. There’s plenty to preview here, and going through it all leaves us very excited for the year in gaming ahead of us. We also discuss the reveal of James Gunn’s plans for the new DC movie and TV universe, and whether or not the new creative leadership’s efforts seem like enough to right the long-sinking ship.
