Something for the Weekend – 07/12/19

After a week away, Something for the Weekend is back to round up all of this week’s video game news and happenings.

But where was it last weekend? Well let me explain: I went away for the weekend, sensibly leaving my laptop and any possibility of work at home, and asked Dom to cover for my turn on the round up…. but then Dom was poorly, Gaz secretly went and did it anyway, and I was happily queueing up for Space Mountain! Sorry, Hyperspace Mountain.

It’s a classic mix up, and apologies to Gaz for not getting his round up published last weekend, but you can still find it here.

In the News This Week

Games in Review

Outside of Mosaic’s release, this week’s clutch of reviews was largely about catching up on games from the last month or so.

This Week’s Features

It’s been a slow week for features, starting off with Game of the Month for November (which obviously went to Death Stranding). Later on, Miguel checked out the Game Tengoku CruisinMix Special Paradise Box Edition from Limited Run Games, and that was about it!

What We Played rounded things out as usual, featuring Pokémon Sword & Shield, Audica and Halo: Reach.

Your Achievements

Checking in with you guys, and the only one piping up with actual gaming was MrYd. He’s had a bad old time with his internet (so couldn’t get the 7GB update for Battlefield V to download in a speedy fashion). Still, he tried MXGP from PS+ for a few minutes, settled in for some of Kingdom Hearts 3’s overly long cutscenes, and then got some actual gaming in with PvZ: Battle for Neighborville.

The Week Ahead

I think it’s safe to say that there’s not a huge amount happening next week, but there might be some interesting things, for PC players in particular.t
