This Week’s Features
While it was a bit quiet for the reviews, it certainly wasn’t the same for the previews, with Stefan kicking off the week with a look at BattleTech: Heavy Metal, which adds eight new mechs to do battle with.
Elsewhere, Jim looked at RAN: Lost Islands, a battle-royale featuring a “fictional showdown between the Ming Dynasty, Japanese Shogunate, and European Empire”, as Dom looked at the classic beat ’em up, Streets of Rage 4.
As always, we rounded out the week with What We Played, featuring Death Stranding, Granblue Fantasy and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
It looks like it was a quiet week for the community:
- MrYd finished of God of War, but was more impressed by Hitman 2. In the sales, he picked up the enjoyable Little Nightmares, before he returned to his staple diet of Firewall, Honor & Duty, and PvZ.
- TSBonyman is finding Bioshock Infinite a bit tiresome, although the DLC has spieced it up a bit, and was disappointed to find his local retailer was sold out for The Outer Worlds!
