Something For The Weekend – 20/10/18


We’ve only a handful of days until one of the most anticipated games this year – that’s right, Just Dance 2019 is arriving this week! Surely Rockstar are taking a massive gamble in releasing their game on the same day?!

Speaking of Rockstar, let’s start the news with the ongoing 100 hour working week saga.

This Week’s Features

From the previews, Stefan had an in depth look at Battlefield V’s single player, focusing on how DICE are telling the stories from WW2.  He also spoke to Franchise Design Director Daniel Berlin about the community, the live Tides of War service, and more. You can check out his Hands On video below.

Moving from WW2 to WW1 now, Ade’s Playing With History series looked at 11-11 Memories Retold, and he also posed questions to the Creative Director about the game’s impressionist art style.

Last up, guest writer Thom Hughes wrote about the Yakuza series and the focus on the inhabitants of Kamurocho.

Elsewhere, What We Played featured Black Ops 4, Starlink: Battle For Atlas & SoulCalibur VI.

Your Achievements

Let’s see what happened this week for our TSA’ers:

  • Crazy_Del smashed the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Platinum in about 80hrs.
  • However tactical20 isn’t as impressed with Odyssey, saying it already feels “like a chore”
  • JR. got the platinums for Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Spider-Man, and then wrote about his ‘raunchy’ experiences in Odyssey.
  • MrYd dabbled in a bit of NFS Payback, Firewall, The Persistence, and Accounting+.
  • TSBonyman was struck down by man flu (as has GeneralJeeb), but No Mans Sky and the Astro Bot PSVR demo got him through the week.
  • And last up, aerobes has spent time nurturing his young Italian side in PES 2019.
