Something for the Weekend – 03/08/19

For those thrilled by the Cricket World Cup final a few weeks ago, the start of the Ashes have been a big change of pace. The first day had drama as Australia collapsed and then salvaged a decent score, the second day had a surprisingly gritty English batting performance, but who knows what the weekend will bring?

Alternatively, if you want things that go very fast, then this weekend’s the last Formula 1 race before the summer break. The Hungaroring is pretty much unique in its nature, so it’s going to be fascinating too see who can come out on top, and if Lewis Hamilton can be kept at bay once more.

In the News This Week

Games in Review

We had some polar opposites with our crop of reviews this week:

This Week’s Features

Stepping away from the reviews, and while we didn’t have many other features this week, they were certainly… a bit different. I went hands on with Steel Circus, a game that blends the future sports fo Speedball with heroes from Overwatch or League of Legends. It’s shaping up rather nicely!

I also got to grips with the opening few beasts in Monster Hunter World: Icebornewhile Nick had fun with the classic multiplayer arena shooting of Goat of Duty.

Tuffcub swung wildly from pulling together a guide to Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes event to then putting together a list of the top 5 most f*ckable buildings in Call of Duty.

Rounding things out, What We Played featured Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Wolfenstein Youngblood and more Dandy Dungeon.
