As I write this I’m watching my 7-year old niece racing around in Forza Horizon 4 using my Logitech steering wheel. She’s just done about a dozen donuts while trying to run over a deer, loudly complaining that they always manage to jump out of her way. A few minutes earlier she screamed at the GPS for telling her to turn right before yelling again because she missed the turn. She’s been cackling like a witch pretty much the entire time, though, so at least she’s having fun. At least, I think she’s having fun. That maniacal laugh is kind of concerning. Maybe I should take her to a vet or something.
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!
It has been a bit since my last Weekend Whammy, but the simple truth is that there isn’t much to talk about when you’ve basically been hiding underneath a massive blanket for two weeks, only emerging to eat Haribo and hiss at the sun. Yup, being in lockdown is a bit on the boring side. It does, however, leave a lot of time for playing games, reading books and watching movies, so that’s cool. This week we’re going to chat about Half-Life: Alyx, the new PS5 controller and The Last of Us 2 being delayed!
