And a glorious new weekend is upon us. The major new releases have dried up after the Q1 rush and it’s become the perfect time to get tucked into the backlog or replay some gems before the E3 2019 madness rolls around.

These last few weeks haven't been totally devoid of new games to play though, what with the likes of Phoenix Wright, Dangerous Driving, Tropico 6, The Division 2, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. There shouldn't be something for every in that little lot.

So then, onto the important stuff, the weekend's gaming plans...

Jon: I’ve borrowed a copy of Detroit: Become Human so I’m going to give that try, for my sins. David Cage games haven’t really resonated for me outside of Heavy Rain, a game which was very much of its time. Detroit: Become Human, at the very least, looks absolutely gorgeous though, so I’m keen to have a quick blast through the story and see if it weaves an enticing tale of downtrodden androids. I’m also pretty excited to see just how good Detroit can look with the power of a high-end PC behind it when it arrives later this year. I never thought we’d see the day where it would come to PC but it should one hell of a looker.

Other than that, I’ve got a fairly blank slate. I’ll no doubt tuck into a bit more of Battlefield V. It’s my between-games comfort food at the moment. DICE continues to add just enough to keep me hooked and busy, and I’ve actually found the Firestorm battle royale mode to be an impressive beast. It’s not without its fair share of problems but it certainly feels like it’s its own thing.

What are your gaming plans for this weekend? Snagged any new bargains in the Spring Sales? Let us know below!

Well, I finished Detroit and boy is that a bad game in terms of the overall themes it presents. Still, it's enjoyable enough just looking at this sci-fi near-future world they've created and getting glimpse at what may be in 20 years time. The race analogy is just flat out awful though lol.


Ended up dumping a lot of time into BFV Firestorm as well. Still think that's the best battle royale around right now, although I get the impression not many people are playing it.

David Cage wouldnt know subtlety if it hit him in the face. He was laughed out of the movie industry but is praised in games. Anyone who loves his games have not played indigo prophesy/fahrenheit.

It's quite painful at times. It's all very surface-level stuff and it never really feels like it goes further than an androids=black people theme that honestly feels a bit offensive in its simplicity.

Graphically and somewhat technologically the game is really well put together, but my f*cking god is that story a trash fire. It's no wonder David got laughed out of the movie industry, and I genuinely don't know anyone who thinks his games storywise are unironically any good. That being said they often are fun though for what the game is.
Honestly while going through Detroit I felt like David was next to me hitting me over the head every 5 minutes while yelling "Get it?"

those two are most likely best strategy games released recently

Looks like there's no problem at all at 1080p everything maxed out =). Never really bothered to check at what fps but i can say i never even noticed a tiny little bit of any fps drop or lag... Maybe gsync helps but yeah, dont really care what fps is on SP games as long as it is perfectly smooth =D
