Something for the Weekend – 10/06/23

Final Fantasy Rebirth Header

It might not have quite the same feel as the E3 weekends of old, but this weekend still feels pretty darn close thanks to the press conferences and streams we’ve been able to enjoy this week. Things kicked off with the Summer Games Fest; tonight there’s the Future Games Show, and tomorrow we have the Xbox Showcase to look forward to, plus Ubisoft on Monday too!

What’s been the highlight for you so far, and is there anything you’re particularly hoping for?

While it was quiet on the review front, it was not the same for the previews. Stefan found that RoboCop: Rogue City has potential to be a surprisingly good movie adaptation, and went hands on with Gangs of Sherwood; a game that blends Warhammer: Vermintide and Devil May Cry, topping it off with a Robin Hood theme.

Elsewhere, Dom took a deep dive into Madden 24, including a look at their new SAPIEN technology that will be making its way to EA FC and other sports titles later this year. Furthermore, he spoke to NFL player Kenneth Boatright and streamer Issac ‘Spade’ Etheridge to learn more about the game and community.
