Something For The Weekend – 24/11/18

 

It feels like Black Friday has been going on forever and ever this year. Whether you got in there early or waited until the day itself, did you manage to grab any good offers?

Of course, there’s plenty of them still knocking about, so make sure to check out our Black Friday round up and see if anything a) tickles your fancy and b) is still in stock!


In the News This Week


Sunday Streaming Hour

We’re taking a weekend off from the Sunday Streaming Hour, looking to be back next weekend with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.


Games in Review

Things are starting to wind down on the reviews front, after a manic few weeks. In fact, this week’s largely been about mopping up from the start of this month.

Reviewed platform in bold.


This Week’s Features

With fewer reviews clogging things up, previews and other things got to make a bit of a comeback. I went hands on with the single player of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it’s pretty, well… ultimate!

I also then returned to Shadow of the Tomb Raider for some co-op challenge tomb adventures in The Forge, while Steve explained why we aren’t reviewing Underworld Ascendant yet, and why you should avoid the currently very broken mess of a game.

Playing With History explored the moral choices to make in the historically authentic Burden of Command, as Dom savoured the communal spirit at the latest Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest, and Jim looked back on the past 12 months of PSVR games, to pick out some of the very best.

Tuff went off to the movies to watch Ralph Breaks The Internet, and thinks it’s damn good, and finally, What We Played featured Underworld Ascendant, Destiny 2 and Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu!

Your Achievements

Who’s still being a good little cowboys? Let’s fine out:

  • Alongside a dose of Red Dead Redemption 2, gernboes finished the first season of Hitman and has been joining in with the official Sport mode races in GT Sport.
  • It’s been 3 weeks since tactical20 last turned his PS4 on, but that’s set to change when God of War eventually arrives in the post in December – Amazon free P&P is very slow.
  • MrYd thinks Red Dead Redemption 2 is getting even better, as he works his way through the game’s epilogues. He’s also waving his Move batons around in Beat Saber.
  • It’s Day 11 in The Forest for TSBonyman, and he’s hiding from some “monstrous thingies”.
  • Tony C ground through Destiny 2 to pick up Luna’s Howl and Redrix’s Broadsword.
  • And finally, aerobes finished RDR2, but has mixed feelings about it. He’s also been lucky enough not to bump into too many issues in Fallout 76, but is finding it a bit dull.

The Week Ahead

The dust is starting to settle on this year’s busiest release season, but there’s still a couple of big games to come at the end of November and into December:

  • Darksiders III – PS4, XBO, PC – 27/11
  • Spintires: Mudrunner – American Wilds Edition – Switch – 27/11
  • Artifact – PC, Mac, Linux – 28/11
  • Ark: Survival Evolved – Switch – 30/11

Enjoy the weekend and we’ll catch you next time!

  1. Even more annoying than Amazon’s tardiness, is the fact I’ve since seen God of War for the same price in loads of other places, including on the shelf in Sainsburys 10 mins ago.

    • Amazon themselves seem to have sold out of it now. Which makes it weird that it takes them that long to deliver it to you. I thought Amazon were very clever when it comes to delivering stuff? Popular things always seem to arrive quicker. I’m assuming that’s because their system says “pick 174 of those up while you’re over there” to cut down on how much wandering around the warehouse they do. I’m sure I read that the really popular stuff is kept all over the warehouse, so someone’s always walking past it.

      They do however have it available for download. Or at least a “PSN Wallet top-up for God of War 4”. Which is a £50 and a £5 PSN code. Which would have given you the game and a spare £30.

      Yeah, Amazon are weird lately.
