Something For The Weekend – 25/11/17

The day after...

How is everyone’s wallets doing after yesterday’s Black Friday? I picked up a TV, and a few other bits and pieces to get a head start on my Christmas shopping. There’s still plenty of deals floating around though, with most sales set to go on until the middle of next week!

In the News This Week

Games in Review

“If you like charming platformers then Wuppo may just be for you” says Aran, while Jim describes Hand of Fate 2 “as a great sequel and perfect for anyone wanting the thrills of an RPG”.

This Week’s Features

As Dom says, “it’s been a phenomenal year for the Nintendo Switch”, and his early impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 indicate that that’s not going to change soon. Fans of the original Secret of Mana will be pleased to hear that the remake (headed to PS4, Vita and PC) is shaping up quite nicely too.

And lastly, Ade reflected on his time in ancient Egypt with a look at Assassin’s Creed Origins, and asks the question: where to next?

What We Played came a little later than usual, but featured Skyrim VR, Destiny 2 and Black Friday deal hunting.

Your Achievements

Let’s check in with what people have been up to over the past week:

  • Tony earnt himself the Destiny 2 platinum and asked, “How does one play Black Friday?” which ron_mcphatty explained as opening billions of tabs and hitting F5 an awful lot. Ron side-graded to a new PS4 Slim in the sales
  • JR. left the longest comment of all time, but seems to be enjoying AC Origins and Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds.
  • Steelhead liked what he saw from the Overwatch free weekend, so ended up buying it.
  • MrYd just managed to get the last trophy from Marvel Heroes Omega before it get shut down.
  • TSBonyman sunk 23 hours into Skyrim VR, or as he put it, almost as much time as he spent with PSVR in total over the last few months!

    I forgot to comment on what we played so I’ll comment here. Today’s my birthday. I went to watch Injustice League today. Also I treated myself to CoD WW2 yesterday which I’m surprised I like. I haven’t played much today though. I think I overdone the chocolates…

        Thanks birthday wishes.

        lol Justpiss League. I thought it was good not great. It went on for a bit. It tried to be funny at times which is was a quick snigger now and again. Nothing like Thor Raggyback, that was OTT with comedy. I would maybe just a bit interesting…

        Cheers buddy SP only so far. I’m not really q fan MP of most games. I will try it but doubt I’ll fall in love with it. I never know really. Maybe because I’m playing it One X and it looks so damn sexy on it.

        Cheers buddy.
        See Ron’s reply above. It’s alright for a quick fix of superheroes I think.
        You are a beast with your games. Too good. If that’s possible…
        I guessed up you were a little bit inebriated ;-D
