This Week’s Features

Looking at the features, Tef had a look at what the Mormo’s Curse update brings to The Swords of Ditto, whether on PS4, PC or on the freshly released Switch version, and also checked out Catherine: Full Body, which goes beyond the usual remaster standards and brings with it new story lines and puzzles.

Overpass sounds a bit like the Dakar Rally with a touch of Spintires, while Dom shared his thoughts on why he’s already super excited for the Playdate handheld.

Last up, What We Played made its 400th appearance, and featured Dauntless, Destiny 2 & A Plague Tale: Innocence.
