Something for the Easter Weekend – 03/04/21

It’s the extra-long Easter Bank holiday right now, and I hope you all have big plans for maxing and relaxing, whether that’s staying home with a video game or seven, or getting some light outdoorsing in.

It’s also my duty to notify you that, much like in The Purge films, we are less than 24 hours away from legally being able to hunt eggs in all their sizes and gorge ourselves on increasingly paper thin chocolate. Not only that, but we’re about 48 hours away from your local supermarket calling open season on their remaining easter egg stock, slashing the prices ridiculously low in comparison to the last couple of weeks.

In the News This Week

There’s now a bunch of Easter game sales on:

And we have a heads up about April’s bundled subscription games:

Games in Review

We had a relatively concise set of game reviews this week, and we’re just starting to dive into Outriders.

Featured Articles

We had a glut of surprising news stories on Thursday morning, so we compiled them all into a round up of 8 totally believable headlines from the morning of April 1st, 2021. OK then…

Kicking things off for the features, Steve played some NieR Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139…, already calling this the new best way to play this cult classic.

Follow on from its recent new-gen upgrade, Jim opined that Crash Bandicoot 4 is a must-play platformer on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S (if it wasn’t already!). Meanwhile, Emma continued to dive into Hitman 3 and how you can be an Agent of Chaos Theory.

Dom was convinced to try out EVE Online, to see how easy it is to get into the game in 2021, so many years after the MMO started, while Miguel called Bravery Network Online a “stylish, streamlined competitive team battler”, and I went hands on with the Knockout City cross-play beta.

And finally, What We Played featured Outriders, Evil Genius 2 and Monster Hunter Rise.
