This Week’s Features
With so many reviews, and with it being the tail end of the year, it wasn’t quite as busy a week in terms of other features. Jason had a robot-bashing good time in Override: Mech City Brawl, while I went hands on with the Fallout 76 BETA, to see if it’s SPECIAL.
With just 20 games on the PlayStation Classic, we then put our heads together for a sum total of 13 seconds to come up with 10 games that are missing from the machine.
Finally What We Played featured Red Dead Redemption 2, Taiko no Tatsujin and Fallout 76.
Let’s find out just how many of you have been pretend cowboys this past week:
- Del’s been knee deep in Red Dead Redemption 2 and he’s absolutely loving it, having just reached Chapter 5.
- TSBonyman’s having fun in the water of No Man’s Sky’s now The Abyss update.
- MrYd’s reached Chapter 4 of RDR2, but is now having to spend a weekend 40 miles away from the game. At least he’s also spending time away from the Tetris Effect demo, which he found rather disappointing.
- Tactical20’s still only on Chapter 2, and he has no idea what he’s doing!
- Aerobes is one of those that found Red Dead a bit boring, so he’s passed it on to his son after 6 hours.
- Ron’s not even that far, he’s still in Chapter 1!
- Most impressively, badger has actually completed RDR2.
- Eldave0 finished a playthrough of Resident Evil 4 before turning to his Switch to play a bit of Golf Story, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 200cc, and put in a few hours with a friend on Diablo 3.
