Something for the Weekend – 26/11/22

Evil West Header

What’s the moniker for today? I always forget. i know there’s some kind of thing between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and is Monday really all that “Cyber” anymore when everything gets put on sale online anyway?)

While I ruminate on that, let’s carry on to our gaming news and features round up for the past week:

In the News This Week

Obviously the Black Friday sales are the biggest thing going on right this second, and we have some round ups for the major consoles. You picked anything up?

There’s good savings on some Nintendo Switch bundles, there’s a whopping £60 off on Series S consoles, and plenty of games on offer as well.

Turning to the real news:

Games in Review & Featured Articles

It’s starting to be the tail end of this year’s big release window, and we had some catch up to do this week with Tactics Ogre: Reborn and Mount & Blade II, but Evil West is another bright new release that will surely appeal to anyone with a bit of modern game design fatigue.

With the reviews in hand, we’re also starting to look to the future once more. I went hands on once again with Deliver Us Mars, and got to check out what’s stomping into the fray with the first Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters DLCSpeaking of DLC, I returned to OlliOlli World for its excellent Finding the Flowzone expansion.

Miguel checked out Amnesia: Memories and Later x Crowd, some fresh releases of these cheesy otome mysteries that are now out on Nintendo Switch.

Rounding things out as always, What We Played featured Pokémon Scarlet & Violent, God of War: Ragnarök and Modern Warfare 2.

Your Achievements

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

  • MrYd stuck an SSD into his PS5, which will make game update time much easier, and then dove into the Yuffie DLC for Final Fantasy VII Remake. He’s enjoying it, but thinks “they really did make a complete mess of the story with the remake.”
  • And willbuchanan grabbed the platinum trophies for Syberia 3 and Lego Ninjago Nindroids, moving immediately on to Lego Ninjago Shadow of Ronin. “My quest to get as many of the Lego platinum trophies as I can continues!”

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you again soon!
