Something for the Weekend – 02/03/24

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Sephiroth header

It’s been another brutal week in the video games industry. Sure, there’s been massive highlights like the launch of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, but the crushing wave of layoffs and redundancies that is sweeping across the games industry has hit Sony, EA, Deck Nine and more. The only glimmer of hope is seeing developers potentially being spun off into independence instead of closed down.

It was all about reviews this week:

We did feature a solitary preview though, of the quirky strategy game Unicorn Overlordbefore rounding out the week with What We Played, featuring Helldivers 2, Crisis Core and (of course) a ton of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Your Achievements

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

  • TSBonyman has continued chipping away at Elden Ring, doing a bunch of side quests and clearing the underground locations, before gaining access to Leyndell.
  • And MrYd’s efforts to clear some backlog went poorly. He had a lot of fun with Helldivers 2, played some Diablo 4, and got in a lot of time with Granblue Fantasy Relink, so the only backlog clearing he actually managed was half of A Plague Tale: Requiem. He’s also swanned off to a big fancy IMAX screen to watch Dune Part 2. Lovely!

That’s the round up for this week. We’ll be back on Monday for more gaming bits and bobs. See you then!
