Something for the Weekend – 04/07/20

Formula 1 is officially back this weekend (and just in time for the release of F1 2020 video game next week, which is a happy coincidence!). Will it be the usual tale of Mercedes leading from lights to flag? Can the Red Bulls stop spinning out all the time? Is the Ferrari really that far behind on pace? And are the “Tracing Point” cars going to steal a march on the rest of the midfield?

There’s a lot of stories that we’ve been waiting for the last four months to get the answers to, and I’m sure F1 fans will be eager to get some F1 action, any F1 action this weekend.

In the News This Week

And we have the continued fallout and action surrounding the allegations of sexual abuse that came out over the last two weeks.

Games in Review

And there was one solitary headset review:

Featured Articles

There was a good clutch of previews and features this week, and I’ll start with my own work. I spoke to People Can Fly as they revealed the second Outriders Broadcast, and dug into how this game is putting the RPG elements before the looter shooter. Great news if you found Destiny and Borderlands a bit too light in that regard.

Meanwhile Jason sampled some of the upcoming Mortal Shell, a Soulslike with a few twists of its own, and Miguel revisited Death Stranding on PC to see how it holds up away from the PS4.

Jim played The Waylanders, finding a game that wants to be a Celtic Dragon Age, before returning to The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners on PSVR, and calling it “the best PSVR game yet in 2020”. Jim then rounded out his week by relaxing and playing the space salvage sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

Finally, What We Played featured The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima and Pokémon games.

Here’s what you in our community has been up to this week:

  • TSBonyman has sunk 20 hours into The Last of Us Part II so far, calling it “awesome in every way.”
  • It was platinum time for Crazy_Del with Metro Exodus, but he’s still one trophy away from the FIFA 20 platinum. Maybe taking part in the FIFA 20 VIP Club the next few months will help him get it?
  • And MrYd has been having more misadventures in Red Dead Redemption 2 with Bob the Horse and another player. He’s also grinding his way up to level 50 in NFS: Heat, running over “endless neon flamingos” as he does so.

I hope you have a good weekend and I’ll see you on the other side!

  1. As much as I’m glad to see Ferrari suffering after getting away with cheating last year, it sucks that what’s likely to be Seb’s last season will be a damp squib…

  2. My copy of F1 2020 arrived yesterday so I had a quick go on a few tracks before the real qualifying. It seemed a bit easier to get the power down out of corners with traction control turned off than last years game.
