Something for the Weekend – 27/07/19

From record-breaking heat to weather warnings and huge thunderstorms, it’s been a topsy-turvy week for British weather! I’m certainly glad to see a return to more subdued temperatures though; the heat was starting to take its toll.

In the News This Week

Games in Review

I’m pretty sure this is the first time there’s been a review of a desk on TSA! But by all accounts, Jim says it’s a game-changer:

This Week’s Features

It was another muted week for the previews as the summer draught draws on, but Stefan looked at Dragon Quest XI S for Nintendo Switch, which builds upon previous Dragon Quest games and adds polish to this ‘fantastic RPG’. He also looked at Oninaki, an action-RPG that comes from the makers of I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear.

Last up, Nick looked at Killsquad, a dungeon-crawler-come-MOBA that was not what he expected to be playing, while What We Played included Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 & Dandy Dungeon.

  1. My days were changed a little while back and i can’t keep track of the days anymore so i keep missing the weekly WWP! xD
    Anyway, i played some God Of War which is good so far but it feels very different – more like playing an Uncharted/TLoU game than a GOW game.
    And in Dreams, i’ve continued my gravitational lightshow shenanigans, made some more muzaks and have conducted some successful experiments with a brand new idea for my next project.
