With no Six Nations, Formula 1 or Formula E this weekend, I’m a bit of a loss of what to do. Perhaps I’ll jump into The Division 2’s free Open Beta this weekend? I never played the first game, but I might see if I can convince some friends to download it and give it a whirl.

This Week’s Features
With a fairly busy week for the reviews, there wasn’t much space for the previews.
Nic explored the open world of One Piece: World Seeker, which could be a major milestone not just for the series, but anime games in general he writes. Maybe…
Meanwhile, Tef had a look at Judgement, a fully dubbed spin-off from the Yakuza series. Here, you take on the role of a private investigator, searching your environment for clues and interrogating suspects on the hunt for truth.
Last up, What We Played featured Anthem, Trials Rising & PSVR.
Time to see what the community have been playing this past week:
- Another week, another platinum for Crazy_Del, who added Vikings to his haul, and almost got the one for Soul Calibur V 7 years after starting the game!
- MrYd also had a busy trophy hunting week, adding Far Cry 3 Remastered and Chromagun VR to his cabinet.
- In between playing Steep with his kids, Andrewww also spent time with the “masterpiece” that is Q*bert, and enjoyed some laughs in Rayman Legends.
- JR. got stuck into AC Odyssey’s DLC, but wasn’t too happy with the forced decisions.
- doomsday619 had a lucky week, winning Honor and Duty: D-Day, and Dick Wilde 2.
- And finally, Eldave0 bought Anthem and is really enjoying the solo play.
