Hello my wonderful wolfy friends the weekend has come and gone yet again in a blur of drunken memories, knocked over bins and pitiful sobbing. This week I’m chatting a little about Borderland 3 again, the Nintendo Switch Lite and Link’s Awakening.
It was 2012 when the last proper Borderlands game was launched, and during that time Gearbox Software seemed to think that they didn’t need to make another game in the franchise. And yet here we are some seven years later with Borderlands 3 having finally become a reality. There’s a lot of hype about this one and for good reason: like it did with so many other people Borderlands 2 sucked me into its looting and shooting and over the course of the seven years I’ve completed the game numerous times over. I’ve hunted down the rarest gear, shot the biggest enemies and consistently laughed at Handsome Jack’s antics.
It’s not the weekend! And do you know what that means, my friends? That’s right, it’s time for another Weekend Whammy because as we all know I have no concept of punctuality or time in general. It’s a flaw. But anyway, this week we’re chatting about the UK […]
The Xbox has been hurting when it comes to exclusive games while the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch have been busy putting out strong titles that could only be played on their respective platforms. Gears of War 4 should have been the return of one of Xbox’s biggest franchises, but The Coalition were put in a difficult position having to take over something with such a strong legacy. What they created was good. It wasn’t great, though. It didn’t match the original trilogy. Now The Coalition are back and they’ve tossed away the “of War” part. Gears 5 is looking to bring the series back properly.
It’s another Weekend Whammy! It’s not the weekend? Ah, fuck it. It’s a Weekday Whammy, then, I guess. Anyway, this week I’m talking about Gears of War, lovely Playstation artwork and the potential brilliance of mobile broadband!
Although it’s a massive cliche to say so, playing Decay of Logos was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The thing about a rollercoaster, though, is that you have to go up as much as you go down. Things must balance out. Decay of Logos, however, was like a rollercoaster that somehow defied the very laws of physics by having a lot more down than it did up. It’s easily the most annoying and downright infuriating game I’ve played this year. At one point I spent nearly 30-minutes yelling at an Elk, calling it all sorts of horrific names. I finished the game eventually, but I’m not sure if it was worth it.
Another weekend has passed into the annals of history, as time marches toward its inevitable violent conclusion. And on that happy note it’s time for another Weekend Whammy! Huzzah! Buckle up meat bags, because this week I’m taking more about Control, Luigi’s Mansion, Aquaman and Decay of Logos.
When it comes to monitors if you have the cash then you can pretty much have it all, but at the lower end of the scale it becomes a case of picking and choosing what you really want. Do you desire those extra pixels? Or do you favour a high refresh rate? A fast response time, or vibrant colours capable of searing your eyeballs? In this case Cello, who have begun bringing their products to the UK, reckon you might like as many frames per second as you can handle and 32″ of screen to go with it. Let’s check out the snappily named Cello W3203SH
Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure is another of those Kickstarter success stories that I love to hear about. It was Kickstarted back in 2016 and developed by a small team of three people from Transylvania, and is yet another example of how not every game needs to be aimed at the broadest audience possible. Gibbous knows what it is and who its for. But is it actually any good?
Right, onto the Weekend Whammy. Hello again my friends, another week has somehow slipped by like a ninja in the night, so let’s jump into it.
