Something for the Weekend – 13/10/19

With Typhoon Hagibis throwing a spanner in the works for both the Rugby World Cup and Formula 1, I’m sure you’re looking for something else to occupy your time, and it’s the perfect excuse to catch up on your backlog or maybe try out one of the latest releases. Obviously the safety of everyone is paramount, but there’s been a lot of chat about the contingency planning (or lack of).

Here at TSA Towers, it was an exceptionally busy week, from the PS5 reveal to the plethora of reviews, so let’s get started!

In the News This Week

Games in Review

As I said, it was an absolute monster week for the reviews, I don’t think we’ve had this many in quite some time!

This Week’s Features

With a whopping 15 reviews this week, it won’t come as a surprise to you that there was only time to squeeze in one preview! Stefan took a look at Star Renegades, which is a game that’s a mix of genres yet is “shaping up to be an indie highlight for next year.” He also spoke to Mike Bithell about the making of John Wick Hexwhile Jim dug into just what it is that’s made Ghost Recon Breakpoint a disappointment.

Other than that, What We Played featured Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Borderlands 3.
