In years gone by, this would be the relative calm before the storm of an E3, but as we head into the faux-E3 season next week with press conferences and streams galore, it’s this that is easily one of the biggest weeks of the year for gamers, thanks to the release of Diablo IV and Street Fighter 6.
Are you playing either of these two titans this weekend? Well, since you’re already here, why not quickly catch up on the week that was?
In the News This Week
Games in Review and Featured Articles
We’re only just getting started in our adventure through Diablo IV, but if you’re keen to find out how Street Fighter 6 has come together, then we can tell you that it’s ruddy brilliant!
And we had a couple hardware reviews as well:
We had a healthy crop of previews this week, starting off with the latest genre mashup in the SteamWorld series, the city builder mining game SteamWorld Build. I also got to hands on with the Ancient Egyptian warfare of Total War: Pharaoh, which tasks you with trying to survive or make the most of the Bronze Age Collapse.
Rounding things out for the week, What We Played featured Street Fighter 6, System Shock and Tears of the Kingdom
Here’s what you in our community have been up to this week:
- Andewww has returned to Pixeljunk Eden and still finds it to be a wonderful experience. He also continued on with Jedi: Fallen Order, which is “surprisingly good for a game by EA” who typically aren’t the best for solo gaming.
- And TSBonyman’s been enjoying Guardians of the Galaxy, even if the combat isn’t his favourite part of the game. He also dipped into the Alone in the Dark demo and found it rather underwhelming. Hopefully the full game is better.
Have a good weekend and I’ll catch you all soon!
