Something For The Weekend – 07/07/18

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?

Let me know what you’re up to this weekend, and if you are getting some gaming in, don’t forget to take advantage of Onrush’s free weekend!

In the News This Week

Games in Review

Tuffcub described our top review this week as a “remaster no one was asking for, but has turned out to be a welcome surprise”…

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.

Next, he moved on to the Battlefield V Closed Alpha, sharing his thoughts as well as this video below.

Tef’s last preview was for the ‘wonderfully squishy’ puzzle platformer Semblance, while Jake took a look at how Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy fares on the Switch.

Wrapping up, Jason looked back over the Dark Souls series to look at what each game did best, while What We Played featured Red Faction Guerrilla, The Crew 2 & Octopath Traveller.

  1. Great win today! I’m not into football but that seemed like a good game, the pressures on now!

    • Is it coming home?

      • Hah, that’s a good way to provoke some rage in me! No, at no point has it ever been coming home since we started singing that bloody song. Football lives in Sett Blatter’s desk drawer along with massive, fat wads of cash and photos of all the footballers shagging minors and other people’s wives. It also holds weighted dice, spare ace playing cards and a giant foam hand with the middle finger up so he can grin at 24 hour news channels with the hand held high whilst in private and then carry on being a massive bellend whilst sporting a neutral and dismissive expression in public. Actually, there’s nothing sporting about him or FIFA, so it was nice to see some very good sporting behaviour in between all the outright violence on the pitch these last few weeks. Put Chumbawumba on.
