Something for the Weekend – 25/04/20

So, I’ve checked my calendar, consulted my star charts and asked Siri, and it’s apparently the weekend now. That means it’s time to down tools and look back on the last seven days in video games with our weekly round-up.

In the News This Week

Games in Review

We had some great games in for review this week with a mixture of the old and the new. Anything you think you’ll be checking out?

And Dom tapped his fingers all over a keyboard for review as well:

Outside of the review train, Jason hopped aboard the preview train to tell us about the unique roguelike card-battling of Monster Train.

Meanwhile, Miguel went hands on to unbox the Azur Lane: Crosswave Limited Edition, full of goodies for fans of the boat-girl series.

And rounding out a week that’s been light on features, What We Played featured Moving Out, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Your Achievements

Heading into the weekend, you’ve already got a ton of gaming under your belts:

  • Crazy_Del has been playing DiRT this week, which has proven a bit too tricky for him to handle with his choice of car. Alongside that, he’s started Shadows Awakening, and is loving Predator: Hunting Grounds.
  • TSBonyman has been splitting his time between Dreams and a blast from the past with Half-Life 2 on PlayStation 3!
  • Not to be outdone, ron_mcphatty’s been playing the original Half-Life on Steam… but is thinking he might cough up for the Black Mesa remake. He’s also been loving the awful story mode from Need for Speed: Payback.
  • And finally, Andrewww has been continuing on with The Division 2 as he preps for a trip to New York. Aside from that it’s been couch co-op with the kids in Star Wars Battlefront (the 2015 one), Plants. vs. Zombies (which was quickly deleted), Resogun and Rayman Legends.

That’s it for this week. Stay safe and healthy, wash your hands, and we’ll see you again soon.
