Something For The Weekend – 09/12/17

Awards & Experiences

Both the Game Awards 2017 and PlayStation Experience have now come and gone, and it feels like this year’s video game season is truly coming to an end. How has gaming in 2017 been for you? From Breath of the Wild to Cuphead, it certainly feels like one of the strongest and most diverse years we’ve had for a while.

In the News This Week

Games in Review

It’s been quite a high scoring week for the reviews:

This Week’s Features

Moving on to the previews, Tef had a look at Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, and although he admitted he was a total novice when it comes to the series, he felt there was something special there. Sticking with the Final Fantasy theme, Dom spoke to Naoki Yoshida about FF XIV and how the MMO is coming along.

Although “it might not be earth shattering or genre-defining, it’s full of ambition and is shaping up to be an impressive debut” says Tef when describing Phantom 8’s first game, Past CureHe also had a gander at Code Vein, Bandai Namco Entertainment’s take on their own version of Dark Souls.

Lastly, Jim checked in with Hachette’s Assassin’s Creed: The Official Collection’s latest figurines to let you know what he thinks, as What We Played included Doom VFR, Wolfenstein 2 & Destiny 2: Curse Of Osiris.
