I’ve really been letting these Weekend Whammys slip, haven’t I? I’ll be honest, the motivation is a tad lacking at the moment. My physical health took a bit of a plummet recently, and in turn that’s smacked my mental health right in the mental balls. But never mind that because since my last Weekend Whammy there’s been loads of stuff happening, some of it good and some of it bad! I’m going to chat about just a little bit of it, so let’s chat The Last of Us 2, Sony’s PS5 and more.
Years ago I used to get excited about E3 and the myriad of game announcements that would flood from out of it. But these days it’s a little harder to get excited about the event for a variety of reasons.

Over the years its become more and more commercial with more and more stilted speeches.
When you buy a PS VR system it comes with a disc containing several demos. They’re good fun and certainly not a bad way to experience VR for the first time. But one of them caught everyone’s eye. It was titled London Heist and included fun stealth, tense shoot-outs and even a car chase where you could lean out the window while firing pistols. Now, developers London Studios have taken the ideas behind their demo and turned it into a fully-fleshed game called Blood & Truth. It might just be one of the best PS VR games yet.
Ladies, gentlemen and highly evolved chimps that have learned how to browse the Internet, welcome back to Patch Notes, the bi-weekly series where I chat about some of the gaming news that’s rocking the world! This time I’m chatting about Sony aiming to make movies based on their games, an exciting new Call of Duty, a Call of Duty in trouble and Darksiders 4.
Let me preface this rambling review of Days Gone by saying that I haven’t completed the game. Since no review code from Sony came in I went out and bought Days Gone, and so because that means I’m not on any official timescale as such I’ve just been taking my time with Days Gone. And I’ve been loving it. It’s a lengthy, sprawling game packed with content and a host of problems, but at its core is developer Brand’s obvious passion for their creation.
I failed to post a Patch Notes last week, but I’m back now! And man was there some big news over the past few weeks to talk about. I’ve picked a few topics to quickly chat about, from the PS5 being announced in surprising fashion to new Star Wars games so let’s delve into this!
Welcome back to patch notes where I selectively chat about random bits of gaming news from the past week or so. This time there’s a lot of Sony stuff, plus Borderlands looks like its making a comeback.

In a surprising twist it has been officially confirmed that Street Fighter 5 will be coming to PC and PS4 only, excluding last-gen players and Xbox owners. It was confirmed that the game is not a timed exclusive, so in theory it should not be appearing anywhere else. […]
Both Microsoft and Sony are strongly considering implementing Early Access style systems into their consoles, having been asked by numerous developers to do so.
