Something for the Weekend – 24/10/20

The Falconeer

Another week down, and another week closer to the next-gen consoles we’ve been waiting all of 2020 for. I’m sure some people are getting itchy fingers and thumbs just thinking about it, but personally I’m just getting a little antsy waiting to get stuck into reviewing them!

As always, it was the next-gen machines that dominated the headlines, but we can throw in some rather odd brand partnerships as well.

In the News This Week

And in weird and totally unnecessary partnerships:

Games in Review

We raced through a bunch of game reviews this week, and were clearly quite impressed with a number of them.

And we reviewed a headset that comes with a prancing horse on the front:

After that metric ton of reviews, I got to look at some upcoming games that deserve some attention. A little bit ahead of the spookiest day of the year I played the creepy and deeply atmospheric Little Nightmares II, and I also got to spend a few hours colonising Mars in Per Aspera.

I also backed up Thomas’ preview of The Falconeer. He tried the game out on PC, while I soared through the skies on Xbox One X. It’s one of the much hyped next-gen launch games, especially as it’s set to push the Xbox Series X to 120Hz at lovely high resolutions, thanks to its gorgeous and stylised art direction.

Finally, What We Played included Genshin Impact, Transformers Battlegrounds and Mario Kart Live.

Your Achievements

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

  • willbuchanan sntched the Pic a Pix Classic platinum yesterday and rounded off the Reignited trilogy with the Spyro 3 platinum as well. He’s now starting A Winter’s Daydream while daydreaming about what his next “proper” game will be.
  • Also grabbing platinum trophies was Crazy_Del (as usual). It was PGA Tour 2K21 this week, but he’s well on the way to the Star Wars Squadron one as well, having rounded out all the online trophies from that game. Next up are Astro Bot Rescue Mission VR.
  • hornet1990 has only just figured out that you can fast travel while mounted and craft your own fast travel packs in Horizon Zero Dawn. He’s at 56% complete after 40 hours, but I’m sure the last 44% won’t take him quite so long!
  • MrYd was annoyed by halloween bobbins in Red Dead Redemption 2, has continued to enjoy Genshin Impact and a little Rogue Company, and been playing lots and lots of Star Wars Squadrons.
  • And having returned from holiday, Andrewww is quarantining at home. His internet’s down though, so he’s been playing The Last of Us Part II and revisiting The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion on PS3 to play with his son.

Have a good weekend (and wrap up warm if you’re going out) and we’ll see you on the other side!
