Death Stranding: Director's Cut

The long awaited Death Stranding arrived yesterday, marking the first game from Hideo Kojima since his split from Konami in 2015. We’ve all read the reviews, but how are our readers finding it?

In the News This Week

Here’s this weeks reviews, with some good ‘uns and some not-so-good ‘uns:

This Week’s Features

Kicking off the Features, TSA’s Game of the Month for October went to The Outer Worlds, but notable mentions were also given to Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Modern Warfare. Sticking with The Outer Worlds, Aran collected together a tongue-in-cheek look at what settlements would look like if game publishers ran them.

Looking at the previews, the RTS Kingdom Under Fire II impressed Dave, as Jim looks ahead to the latest season for For Honor, which adds a new character and map. Meanwhile, Nic went hands on with Shenmue III, and asked that all important question: is it worth the wait?

Last up, What We Played featured Red Dead Redemption 2, Nioh 2 & Tuffcub checking in from his annual Hawaii holiday (I’m not jealous, honest…)

  1. MrY??

    Hmm, that actually makes me sound all mysterious. I like it and it’s a lot better than some of the things I’ve been called online when people have failed to pronounce MrYd properly.

    • MrY Happy belated birthday you mysterious bastard xD

      • Thanks, I guess. Not so sure about the bastard bit, but never mind.

    • Oops!

      • Don’t worry. I have a cunning plan ;)
