This Week’s Features
Following on from our written Super Mario Maker 2 review, I followed up with a video looking at The Good, The Bad & The… Luigi?
Jim went web-slinging in Spider-Man: Far From Home, finding a VR experience that we really want turned into a full game, while Miguel wasn’t so much swinging through the city, as levelling when looking at the BattleTech: Urban Warfare expansion.
We trawled the internet to discover just what fans want added to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and there was a look at how Nintendo are teaching Luigi some new gooey tricks in Luigi’s Mansion 3.
Rounding things up, What We Played featured Judgment, Crash Team Racing & Super Mario Maker 2.
It’s another pretty quiet week in the What We Played comments section.
