Okay, so at what point does the next-gen become current-gen? Because, obviously both the new Xbox and new Playstation are out and while you can’t buy them easily they technically are the current-gen now, aren’t they? And the PS4 and the Xbox One are last-gen, surely? And yet…I still find myself using the term “next-gen” when talking about the PS5 and Series X/S. And lots of articles on the web still use the term as well. So that’s my question of the week folks: is it current-gen or next-gen? What are we living in!? I’M SO CONFUSED!
Somewhere in the middle of all the news about next-gen, COVID, the election in America, lockdowns in the UK and everything else I think I just switched off. I didn’t want to write a Weekend Whammy because I didn’t know what to say. I should talk about a […]
The first thing on the agenda this week is a little bit of site maintenance news. Normally I put the the donation box on the bottom of the page, but this week it’s up top. I know, Know. I don’t want to come across like a clingy ex. The reason its up here is because in the next few weeks this site’s annual running costs will be, totalling just under £300. It’s not a lot of cash in the grand scheme, but as most of you already know I don’t work due to my Cystic Fibrosis and I don’t run this site for profit outside of the occasional sponsored post. So if you can afford to chuck a few coins toward keeping WGB going, I’d appreciate it greatly. If you can’t afford to then I understand perfectly. Maybe considering sacrificing a family member on my behalf? I won’t judge.
Today, my fellow squishy beings, is my birthday. Therefore I will be requiring you all to worship my divine brilliance for at least five minutes before you read the rest of this week’s Weekend Whammy. Start worshipping. Done? Alright, we can get on with this, then. Joking aside, as always I hope you’re all keeping well, staying safe and getting to play loads of games. On this Weekend Whammy I’m going to tackling Insomniac’s announcement that they’ve recast Spider-Man. I’ll also be talking about what I’m playing and planning on review. So let’s do this!
Welcome back to the Weekend Whammy! As always and forever, I’m the idiot running this little Internet asylum and the Weekend Whammy is where I chat about…er, anything, really. But this week it’s very much gaming related stuff because loads of exciting things have happened. So lets jump into it, shall we?
Hello! I’m back again with another Weekend Whammy. There was some big news that came out in the past few weeks, and I’m excited to talk about them! The lid has been lifted on the Xbox Series X and Series S, so there’s loads to talk about there, and Nvidia announced their new 3000 series graphics cards, too. Let’s get into it?
Hello, friends! Well, my day didn’t exactly get off to a great start. I loaded my doggo (Laoch, the white German Shepard) into the car and headed out to a lovely woodland walk. But just a few minutes in we walked straight into a group of irate wasps that seemed to have been riled up by somebody or something ahead of us. Whatever the cause, one wasp, in particular, did not like the look of my face, so it hammered into the side of my cheek at full speed and rammed its stinger home. I had to yank the little bastard off, which left the stinger in. After that, I unleashed a string of expletives so loud and descriptive that I’m fairly sure sweet old ladies all the way in Australia held their hands to their mouths and said, “oh, my!” After that, I had to carefully get a wasp off my dog’s head where it was trying to burrow into his hair. So yup, that wasn’t the best start to my day.
Welcome back to another Weekend Whammy! And this one is even on the weekend! On this week’s dose of nonsense I’m going to talk lock down, the Horizon: Zero Dawn PC port being a bit rough, Ghost of Tsushima being awesome and skateboarding in Death Stranding.
It’s time for another Weekend Whammy my friends, and this week I’m going to be talking about Death Stranding, Destroy All Humans! and Ubisoft’s implosion. I mean, I will be if I can get my head on straight. With some of the restrictions lifting my youngest niece was able to come around and stay for the night. And for the next night. And the night after that. And then another one, just to be sure. I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again. Man, that kid can talk!
Fear not, dear reader, for I have returned to guide you unto the shining light of excellence that is ME! Thou shall bask in my brilliance and my all-round awewsomeness at doing the video games. Seriously, though, welcome back guys and gals. It’s time for more random chatter. This week I’m talking about sushi, rising game prices and probably more sushi.
