It’s been a long week. For some of us anyway. Here, we are tired of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and ready for spring to come.
Mother Nature has been teasing us for the past few weeks. Yesterday was the worst teasing ever. At my forest neck, it’s 67 degrees. Tonight? We are expecting up to 4 inches of snow. I will need to cover the daffodils that have bloomed early.
Because the weather never seems to know what it wants to do, most of us here at VG247 plan to stay indoors and play video games.
Last week, it was all about the Elden Ring. This week, we’re not obsessed with it because only one of us is working on it.
Here’s what we plan to do over the weekend.
Dom Peppiatt, Feature Editor – Destiny 2: The Witch Queen
Have you ever poked deep into the chamber of a grenade launcher and heard the satisfying cry of a parasite leaving the chamber at 300mph? Have you ever, somehow, launched a stream of water or wasps (or wasps, or something) at someone trying to hunt down their damn best friend in the middle of a fight guns? I’m going to assume that, no, you don’t. But do you want to? OH that’s right.
You may have seen a lot about Fate 2 over the past few weeks – I’ve been rambling enthusiastically about how this is one of the best FPS campaigns in years – but guncraft is something I haven’t read too much into since Bungie launched its latest expansion. It’s back to the OG Destiny level, in my head; focus less on your abilities and more on the steel (or scarab) in your hand. A new theme built around alchemy symbols, insect parts, and alien bios has come out strong this season and so I’ll be spending my downtime over the weekend. this to unlock more stupid guns to do stupid things, thank you very much.
Kelsey Raynor, Instructor – Elden Ring
I’ll be spending more time this weekend trying to make more progress in Elden Ring. Although, I doubt I’ll make much progress in that time, but let’s be honest.
It took me a while to get over the initial frustration of constantly dying and losing my Runes, but after a small respite and some hype from friends, I jumped in and beat a some bosses. Some have help, some solo, and all of them are incredibly rewarding (in terms of dopamine and Runes anyway).
I put aside my terrible dodging and dodging, choosing instead to explore and play with magic. Now, it’s safe to say that I’m completely obsessed with the world of The Lands Between, and I’m determined to become Lord Elden. That probably won’t happen this weekend. Maybe next month or so, if I’m lucky. It will be worth it.
Tom Orry, Editor-in-Chief – Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Switch
I played a bit of Kirby’s first 3D outing – Kirby and the Forgotten Land – and it was just a great time. I can’t say much at this stage, but it’s another game of the genre: “I didn’t know I wanted that game, but I’m really glad it exists.”
These days, the Switch has certainly been around for a bit, being extremely underpowered on paper (although now with a gorgeous OLED display if you buy a new model) compared to its competitors, but that’s it. didn’t stop Nintendo from making some beautiful products. Kirby and the Forgotten Land is such a game, its colorful world and innovative design easily make up for the lack of horsepower. It was a pleasure.
Stay tuned for the full review as the March 25 release date approaches.
That’s it for us. What field are you planning to get into? Play a little bit of Elden Ring or something else? Let us know!
