Happy Sunday, and Happy New Year gamers. It’s that time of the day, for the first time this year, that we take a look at the biggest news of the day. We’re two days into 2022 but that hasn’t stopped the news from flowing.
From rumours that GoldenEye 007 might be making its way over to Xbox to ConcernedApe showing us a tiny bit more of Haunted Chocolatier, there’s plenty to go through this Sunday. Let’s get into it.
ConcernedApe Celebrates 2022 With New Haunted Chocolatier Screenshots
Let’s start this roundup off in the best possible way – with another quick peek at ConcernedApe’s Haunted Chocolatier. The recently revealed but already long-awaited next game from Stardew Valley’s creator is likely still a ways off, but these two new screenshots should satiate your appetite for a little longer. The screenshots show a garden sat atop a school bus, while the other shows a frozen manor with gargoyles. Intriguing, but we’re going to have to demand we get to play this game now, thanks.

That’s pretty impressive considering Ratchet is from 2012 and Wipeout is from all the way back in 2008. Grab your Scorpion Flail and get back in there gladiator.

Speaking of games from long ago – GoldenEye 007. An achievement list for the Rare classic has recently popped up, sparking rumours that it’s coming to Xbox sometime soon. If you’re not sure why that’s a big deal, consider that Nintendo owns the licence to GoldenEye and hasn’t really done anything with it for the past decade and that it’s one of the most renowned first-person shooters out there. Oh, also the pause menu music is an absolute bop.
