How’s it going everybody, Adrian Simple here from thegamingobserver.com and welcome to your daily gaming update for Tuesday, January 21st. Let’s get started.

HUGE Destiny 2 puzzle solved by community

Alright so over the past week Destiny 2 players have been working together to solve a major community puzzle. It’s pretty complicated so I’ll try and explain it the best I can here. Essentially there is an area in the game called the Corridors of Time. It is a labrynth, and each room of the labrynth has six doors that are portals to a different room. Now, if you follow a specific order of going through those doors, you eventually come to a special room that has a large symbol in the middle of it, surrounded by rings of other hexagonal symbols. Here’s the catch – different players were seeing different symbols in that room. And so over multiple days people have been submitting their emblems all over the internet which has now been collected into an absolutely ginormous map, you’ve got to see it I have it linked on the website. The thing is massive, and it was all put together by analyzing community-submitted screenshots of their games, its crazy what they’ve done. Anyway, you follow that map and it brings you to some special loot which apparently people aren’t all that excited about, but certainly the journey to get there was quite the experience. I love seeing how games can bring people together like this, so cheers to Bungie for making it happen so often.

Dragon Ball Z takes #1 in the UK physical charts

I haven’t done this in a while, but every now and then on the show here I like to cover the weekly UK physical sales data, because usually there is something interesting to talk about. And this week is particularly interesting, because of the launch of the new Dragon Ball Z, which takes the #1 spot for last week. This beat out Modern Warfare, FIFA 20, Star Wars Jedi, and GTA V, all of which have been taking turns with #1 over the course of the last few months. Here’s an even weirder thing, a bunch of 3DS games went on sale in the UK last week, so games like WarioWare went from spot #827 to #5 because a particular retailer had it dirt cheap. Things like this happened with a few other games as well. Anyway, super interesting, and we’ll definitely see it return to normal next week, though I’m interested in seeing if Dragon Ball will have any legs.

Dying Light 2 delayed with no target date

My friends it is game delay season, with Dying Light 2 now being pushed from Spring 2020 to an unannounced date. Techland didn’t say much on top of that, with a pretty boilerpate message being sent on Twitter, but it’s definitely interesting to see. There must be something about coming back from the holidays and realizing just how little time you have left to develop a game, considering how many others have been significantly delayed at this point.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair getting a demo. Play it!

Listen up, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is going to be getting a demo. You’ve heard me rave about this game on the show, and you owe it to yourself to at least play the demo. It arrives on Steam this Thursday, on the PS4 and the Switch next Thursday, and we don’t yet know when for the Xbox. This was the first game I ever got a review copy for, and I could not have been happier with another game marking that milestone. Give it a try if you’re hesistant about buying it.

Ok folks that’s all for today, thank you so much for tuning in. As you know I am here every Monday-Friday with the news, which means I’ll be back tomorrow, and until then…happy gaming everyone.
