Something for the Weekend – 18/07/20

It’s the third weekend of the first triple header of Formula 1 races, with the now very closed off F1 circus visiting the classic Hungaroring. It’s almost certain to be a pair of Mercs at the front (though the predicted rain could throw some mild surprises there), but it’s much more interesting behind them. Will Red Bull be able to push them a bit harder this weekend? Will the “Tracing Point” finally realise its true potential? Will Lando pull off any more final lap heroics?

There’s plenty of big new games for non-sporting fans to dig into this week as well. If you’re needing a break from Animal Crossing, you might be eyeing up Paper Mario: The Origami King, and with The Last of Us Part II’s release a month in the past now, I’m sure many will have picked up the last great PS4 exclusive, Ghost of Tsushima. We’ve got reviews of both for you to check out.

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

  • Crazy_Del completed Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, but has put his hunt for the platinum trophy temporarily on hold to dive into Ghost of Tsushima for the first time. “I have spent more time on photomode than playing the game itself,” he said.
  • It’s been more The Last of Us Part II for ron_mcphatty, who’s now heading into the same, but different second half of the game.
  • Andrewww has been under the weather this week – fingers crossed it’s not Covid! – but at least he’s now feeling a bit better and can get back to some TLOU2.
  • Aside from his usual Red Dead adventures, MrYd decided to give Erica another go and seems to be kind of enjoying it? He’s not been enjoying the collectables in NFS: Heat, though.
  • And tactical20 has been enjoying the first half hour or so of Paper Mario: The Origami King.

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

  1. Just got my results, it’s not Covid, just an unspectacular summer flu… so, no excuse then to stay home for 2 weeks and catch up with gaming, but I’m quite happy about that. Stay healthy, everyone..!

    • Good news, phew! Enjoy the brief weekend gaming before work mate!

    • Glad to hear you’re alright. I guess you can celebrate the news with some gaming anyway? ;)

      • Thanks. I actually got next week off, but not for gaming, I’ll go for some walks in the Alps, would’ve been a shame had I needed to cancel that. But before that, I’m playing some more TLOU2 – just played the museums part, loved it! So, I’m still nowhere, I really take my time with this game… :-)
