Weekend Whammy: Next-gen Consoles Prices & Coronavirus


Hello dear readers, you have entered a world of magic, of love, of unending beauty, of…uh, stuff. Yes, it’s time for a another Weekend Whammy that isn’t remotely near a weekend! YEAH! This week, there’s no damn games! But there is some stuff to talk about in regards to the next-gen consoles, their costs and their power Oh, and the Coronavirus. That as well.

It’s still pretty slow in terms of the games coming out, so I’ve just got one review: Corruption 2029. Luckily it’s a pretty good little turn-based tactical whatsyamacallit that offers up the tension of XCOM in a much leaner (and cheaper) package. Some people might be put off by the lack of content outside of the core gameplay loop, but I like these kinds of small games that focus on doing one or two things very well. As much as I love modern triple-A titles, they are often so big and bloated in terms of mechanics that they don’t do any one thing particularly well.

But I do have a new game in for review by the name of Bloodroots, a pretty cool looking top-down brawler. Oh, and the main character is called Mr. Wolf, so obviously I have to check that out. Based on the trailer it looks like it could be a lot of fun, with the emphasis being on using things in the environment as weapons.
