A Brief Hiatus

Hey folks,

I wanted to update you on the lack of content and what’s going on. Basically, I’m taking a short break, just until this weekend (hopefully.)

Update on the last Weekend Whammy

Hey folks,

Just a quick update on why there hasn’t been a written version of my previous Weekend Whammy. The plan was to transcribe my audio (with proper editing to make it work in written form) and post it up as a regular Weekend Whammy. Had I been smart I would have used some speech-to-text software while I was recording the episode to gave me a basic transcript to work from, but obviously I’m dumber than a brick with brain-damage.

February’s Free PSN Games Are Awesome

Ah, the power of free stuff. There have been some pretty amazing months on both PSN and Xbox Live Gold when it comes to freebies, all acting as a nice little bonus. But February’s line-up of free titles on PSN might be one of the strongest we’ve gotten thanks to Sony announcing a trio of kick-ass games. These will be going up on the 2nd of February, so remember to add them to your download queue even if you don’t intend on playing them just yet, that way they’ll be added to your library and you can download them whenever you want.

Cyberpunk 2077 Removed From Playstation Store, Refunds Offered

Things are going from bad to worse for CD Projekt RED (CDPR) and the highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, which for many was the biggest and most exciting launch of the year. Thanks to their success with The Witcher 3, CDPR were riding high atop a wave of love and were valued at around $8-billion, making them worth more than even Ubisoft. They were the darlings of the game industry, and somehow in less than a week they’ve burned it all to the ground.

Marvel’s Avengers Beta (Demo) Impressions

The “beta” (Read; demo) for Crystal Dynamics forthcoming Avengers game was open to everyone to play over the weekend, so I jumped in and spent some time smashing stuff as the Hulk, flying around as Iron-Man, kicking ass as Black Widow and generally avoiding playing as the annoying Kamala Khan as much as possible. With less than a month until the Avengers is out, this demo is our chance to see if we’re going to get an awesome new superhero game that can stand with Marvel’s Spider-Man and the Arkham games.

Best Games of 2020, So Far

So, we’ve managed to officially make it past the half-way points of this utterly crazy year. Putting aside all the madness, that means we’re half-way to the traditional Game of the Year lists where we can gush about the games we love, argue about what we didn’t and remind ourselves why our hobby is awesome. That’s another 6-months away though, and I’m impatient, so just like last year I’m going to do the best games of the year, so far.
