Something for the Weekend – 31/10/20

Let’s start the previews with Stefan unboxing our Xbox Series X and sharing his thoughts on the “obelisk”. It looks better in the flesh don’t you think? [It’s not fleshy – Ed.]

Meanwhile, Jim shared his first PS5 experience with Astro’s Playroom, which he said does a marvellous job of “easing you into the PS5 ecosystem while celebrating the PlayStation’s long legacy”.

From the current generation, Stefan looked at Season 7 of Apex Legions. Aside from a new map, this season also adds a new vehicle, the hovercar, and a new legend to play, making it one of the biggest updates yet.

And as we’re bracing ourselves for a second lockdown, Tom shared how Dark Souls, Twitch, and Discord helped him survive the first one.

Last up, What We Played included Watch Dogs Legion, Little Hope & Yakuza Like a Dragon.
