Something for the Weekend – 13/02/21

The opening round of the Six Nations certainly delivered last weekend, complete with red cards and that win from Scotland which went into the history books. As an England fan I’ll be hoping today’s game against Italy goes much more smoothly, and I’m sure everyone is excited to see which France shows up against Ireland later.

Anyway, enough rugby chit-chat, let’s recap this past week of video gaming news on TSA!

In the News This Week

Games in Review

It was another strong week with some decent review scores:

And we had a couple of hardware reviews looking at HyperX’s new products too:

Swiftly moving onto the previews, Dom hit it off with the ‘intoxicating and inviting’ demo for Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield. Emma, meanwhile, dove beneath the surface of Subnautica: Below Zeroas Reuben went hands on with Bravely Default II and shared his first thoughts, and Tef went hands on with the upcoming closed beta for Roller Champions.

Sticking with Reuben, he also examined the journey Street Fighter V has been on since its rocky release, and asks if it’s worth playing in 2021.

Elsewhere, Alan spoke to Corina Boettger, the voice actor for Paimon in Genshin Impact, and Marcus ranked every Ratchet & Clank game from worst to best.

Wrapping up the week, What We Played featured Destruction AllStars, Bravely Default II & Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

  1. Out of curiosity, what happened to the headphones giveaway? Wasn’t the draw supposed to be Monday just gone?

    • Closed at 11:59PM on Tuesday. So I guess someone got told they’d won on Wednesday, and has 3 working days to respond. Which would make tomorrow. Or next Thursday if they don’t respond and someone else gets a chance at winning.

      I’m just assuming I didn’t win. Again. Not surprising, since the odds of me winning were about 0.5%
