Something for the Weekend – 16/03/19

Grand Slam

It’s probably one of the best weekends we’ve had in a while for watching sports, with the Six Nations coming down to the wire for Ireland, Wales and England today, and the F1 season kicking off Down Under!

Anyway, let’s have a look back over the past seven days here on TSA!


In the News This Week


Games in Review

Tef shared some thoughts on The Division 2 ahead of the full review that should land next week, but check out the rest of the reviews below:

This Week’s Features

Jim kicked off the previews this week with a look at Pagan Online. He called it “a solid dungeon crawler” as he spoke to Lead Game Designer, Emil Esov, about what you can expect from the game.

Meanwhile, Thomas ventured into the open world, cooperative survival RPG that is Outward. As he says in his preview, this isn’t a game for the causal players – the punishing difficulty combined with the death mechanics create a ‘brutal’ experience.

Wrapping up, Tef practised his aim in Snooker 19, while Jim took a nostalgic look back at Warhawk, and what it meant for the PS3 multiplayer community.

Finally, What We Played featured DMC 5, One Piece, and The Division 2.

  1. I thought I did mention the name of the mobile game I’m playing, it’s Alto’s Adventure, it’s free, and really simple, but looks beautiful and is addictive. And there’s already a sequel, which I’ve not tried yet.

    • My bad, must have missed it! I’ll give it a go, thanks
