I can’t see many of us getting much gaming done today, thanks to the British Grand Prix, Wimbledon and of course, the England–Sweden game. Even if you’ve got absolutely no interest in sports, maybe you’re having a BBQ to enjoy this fine weather, or perhaps you’re celebrating Pride?

This Week’s Features
It was a fairly quiet week all round, but Teflon got us started with a look at Jump Force, a 3v3 tag team fighting game that features famous manga heroes and villains battling it out, although it sounds like it needs a fair bit of work before it’s release. Staying with the anime theme, he also played My Hero One’s Justice, another 3D battler, however this one sounds like it has far more promise.
Let’s check in with the community this week:
- tactical20 picked up Mass Effect Andromeda for just a fiver this week and is enjoying it so far.
- Black Ops III wasn’t TSBonyman’s cup of tea, so he went back to the “beautiful game” that is No Man’s Sky.
- hornet1990 is struggling through the ‘dire’ CoD:Infinite Warfare, declaring he’s done “with anything by Infinity Ward and future based CoDs in general”!
- Crazy_Del nabbed the platinum for The Crew 2 in under 30hrs, and also for Burly Men at Sea.
- MrYd tried out the PS+ games, and also made the mistake of trying Skyrim VR in this heat!
- Andrewww played some HZD and Elite Dangerous.
- Ron_mcphatty played the “gorgeous” Gravity Rush 2, and wonders if anyone has played EverSpace which is currently on sale?
- And last up, gernboes got back into GR Wildlands with some work colleagues, and started his own cocaine business in GTA V!
