It’s been a busy week, so I’m sure plenty of you will be in need of this gaming round-up!

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

MrYd has finished a second playthrough of Scarlet Nexus, which remains one of his top two RPGs of the year. He continued on with the Mafia remake and has continued to enjoy PS Plus game First Class Trouble, which is apparently doing a good job of tapping into the PS5 accolades system. Oh, and he explored that Skyrim anniversary update a bit too.

hornet1990 has been giving his 14-year-old PSP some attention, finding that the battery life manages to still hold a charge! That’s let him enjoy Outrun: Coast 2 Coast, NHL 07 and Retro City Rampage DX on it.

willbuchanan has been mopping up some collectables in Need for Speed Heat, but he’s been struggling with flu. Get well soon!

And TSBonyman has stuck with his usual of No Man’s Sky and Dreams, while also rewatching one of his favourite sitcoms, Community.

That’s it for this week’s gaming round-up. Have a fun weekend, and we’ll catch you again soon.
