.Did you ever try Woah Dave!?
I’ve heard the name but didn’t know what it was. Just saw it’s available on 3DS (as I don’t have a PC) so will put it on my wish list. Thanks!

I reckon about £6.99 on Switch - the Nintendo equivalent of free!

Woah Dave! was free on PS+ (PS4/Vita) a few years back. It’s quite cool I think.

Sea of Thieves' mega update is out this week but other than that I'm not really fussed by anything this week. Not sure there's much for me until Rage 2, which isnt a problem. Being a pirate with a bit of Spider-Man inbetween will keep me going until May 14th.

Thanks Leon! There it was in my library. It is very good and is definitely a one more go type game. Very similar to Super Crate Box in single player at least.

There's an Arcade Archives release of Ninja Gaiden out on Switch tomorrow. Which is my birthday so I have the perfect excuse to treat myself!

I want Rage 2, but I don't full price want it. I do have $77 in credit at a game shop down in Mississauga though... hmmst. Lemme finish Ys VIII and decide after that. I'm tempted to go to Yakuza 0 (half done, been a year since last played) or Dawn of Sorrow next.

I'm reasonably confident Rage 2 will go cheap very quick so I'll wait.

Bethesda games do tend to drop quick, especially their FPS games but I am more than happy to buy it and trade it in when i'm done.

I want Rage 2, since I actually liked Rage 1 more than I thought I would, but I need make sure my PC can run the thing on a decent level first!
I'm hoping the game is "Rage but better" and not just different type of FPS with the name Rage slapped on it.

Rage 2 ain't doing so hot in reviews. It's got a 73 on Metacritic (4.4 user score), and a 62% positive "Mixed" score on Steam.

There appears to be *some* review bombing because it has Denuvo or something, but there's also plenty of reviews complaining it's plagued with bugs and kind of boring, even when it works.

I'd definitely wait for the inevitable sale... WTF is going on with Bethesda these days?

I’m not sure if I missed something but Fallout 76 aside I think Bethesda have been relatively consistent.

Although aggregate scores aren’t stellar some of the Rage 2 reviews have been individually favourable like the IGN review. I wouldnt write them off just yet.

73% isn't bad by any means!

Fallout 4 was also garbage, unless you like the building stuff mode. The Elder Scrolls mobile game was trash. Fallout Shelter had exploitative microtransactions. The Elder Scrolls tabletop game literally copy/pasted a D&D campaign and changed a few words. Wolfenstein 2 had tons of issues at launch including balancing issues with the difficulty settings.

It's not just Fallout 76.

Possible a slightly harsh assessment of Bethesda maybe?

Average review scores and player sentiment towards franchises such as Fallout, Doom, Elder Scrolls, Prey, Dishonored, Evil Within, even Rage, are no less than good in general, and significantly more positive than that in some cases. I'd argue in the spectrum of publishers the Bethesda quality bar is consistently one of the highest, and a quick glance at Metacritic would bear that out. Not the definitive yardstick by any stretch but a yardstick all the same.

Fallout 76 was a huge fumble, handled terribly. But the table top game will have very little to do with the video game division, Fallout Shelter is free-to-play mobile game designed for micro-transactions, and Wolf 2 is a very highly rated game that I'm not sure can be placed in any 'Video Game Disasters' list.

Not saying Bethesda are perfect, but perhaps not quite that bad Mr Isopod!

Just offering a more 'glass half full' perspective ;)

Slay the Spire PS4??!!

There goes next week :?


Everybody’s Golf PSVR... bound to be an upgrade option if you already have it, though running around that stupid island in VR might be too much to take.

Team Sonic Racing is getting some glowing reviews, and is only £29.99 full price.

Very tempted...

I've read some places saying that it's a step back from transformed in some areas, but aye, sounds good enough to me. I'm gonna buy it.
