Formula 1 heads to Abu Dhabi for the season finale, and although both the drivers and constructors championships have been wrapped up by Mercedes, there’s still lots to play for with Racing Point, Mclaren, (and to a lesser extent) Renault vying for third place.

Elsewhere, it’s been a big week in the games industry, not just with the Game Awards, but also with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. Have you picked up the long-awaited game, and if so, what are your first thoughts?

  1. No, I’ve not picked up Cyberpunk 2077, as I had felt seriously let down by CDPR with The Witcher 3 back then. I had played that game for months, and in the end (spoiler alert) everybody died and the hero committed suicide, because I had not taken part in a snowball fight. For me, the story is important in a game, and if that gets utter rubbish, it’s just not for me. And, I can totally enjoy a bad ending, but causality is key here, not like that. Maybe, I’ll pick probably overhyped Cyberpunk up from the bargain bin later on.
