The Formula 1 season effectively got under way this week with the first round of testing and I was hoping we would see a closer battle for the championship, but it already looks like Mercedes are comfortably ahead of everyone else with some ingenious technical innovations. Still, it looks like there could be a closer battle for the remaining spot on the podium, or is that just my wishful thinking?
Anyway, let’s get started with this week’s round-up!

And from the miscellaneous reviews:
With so many reviews, it’s not surprising there wasn’t much on the preview front. Still, Jim had a look at two new Operators for Rainbow Six Siege: Void Edge – Oryx, with his ‘Remah Dash’, and Iana, with her ‘Gemini Replicator’ decoy gadget.
Here’s what you’ve been up to this week:
- TSBonyman has been continuing to explore in No Mans Sky, while also unleashing his creative side in Dreams.
- As Crazy_Del nears the Just Cause 4 platinum, he’s also picked up Darksiders and Hunt: Showdown – if you fancy teaming up, let him know!
- And last up, MrYd wrapped up replaying the Uncharted trilogy, while also dabbling in Dreams and The Division 2, which has pleasantly surprised him.
Well there we have it, enjoy your weekend’s and I’ll be back soon!
