"Some is good. More is better." Liam's philosophy on turrets will surely go down in history as one of the more memorable gaming quotes, rubbing shoulders with Fallout's "War... War never changes," and Sam's "Not all people on Xbox Live are arses." I'll have to take your word for it, Sam. Would you like to see Liam's turret farm in action? Well, you'll have to wait. Now is not the time for such things.
Will the plucky Yorkshireman rise to the challenge, like the delicious puddings his clansmen are known for? Or will he land just shy of the target, like a wet teabag flicked at the bin with a lack of force? If we all make an effort to harangue the poor bloke we might get to see him be crowned The King of Halo.
Mr. Wing has been busy with Overwatch in the meantime, along with Liam, James and Sam. The fearsome foursome attempted the Halloween horde mode but didn't have much luck. Sam and Plas kept at it, undeterred, long into the night, managing not only to beat it on normal with the objective taking no damage, but also on hard.
What a shot, indeed. Take a look.
At the end of the match, all of the votes went to... drum roll, please... Sam! This happened twice (three times actually, the third just wasn't captured. Ed.), with Sam even voting for himself. He was just that good.
Now, time for the big news.
"Well, looks like the new Red Dead is about to be announced based on their website and all the social media accounts."
Correct, Timmeh! BAMozzy was feeling it too, "As a Map leaked months ago and was rumoured to be revealed at E3 and a few other events since then, I would be surprised if a new Read Dead game wasn't announced in the near future..."
Yes, Rockstar have announced Red Dead Redemption 2. Follow the link to watch the trailer.
It's very exciting but, as you can see, some folks are unaware of the whole story (as such they are placed on the Naughty List, and banned from social encounters until this less-than-satisfactory situation is remedied). Admittedly, that shouldn't be too much of a problem if my prediction is right. I'm saying prequel. That voice near the end sounds a lot like Dutch to me. John Marston used to run with Dutch's Gang and was known for robbing banks, amongst other things. It could be the wild west equivalent of GTA V's heists. Hopefully we won't have to wait a year this time, Rockstar.
That other big news story was of course the unveiling of the Nintendo Switch, which prompted Rodent and Plas to simultaneously chime, "It looks pretty interesting," and Heavyarms_Kai to exclaim, "If nothing else it could become the definitive gaming tablet."
That almost sounds like a compliment.
If Nintendo price it right, JohnBhoy is game, citing certain exclusives and the nifty looking console itself as his reasons. Liam is of a similar frame of mind, but may hang back to see if "an XL version" rears its head, after being burned one too many times by previous Nintendo hardware.
ImmaturityRules feels it looks like a Wii U, but does acknowledge:
"The tablet looks a lot sleeker than the clunky Wii U gamepad, and a Micro SD slot plus heavy Virtual Console support would make it a Nintendo fan's wet dream."
Sam is decidedly less of an initial fan, opining, "I didn't like the trailer to be honest. Whilst focusing on Skyrim shows off third-party support, why would you lead with a game that most people played five years ago? And people will have had the remaster for months come March, so they'll be late again."
He went on to criticise the fact that, "Some of the situations to take it out in seemed a stretch as well." Before finally letting loose on the tech; "On the hardware itself, I think the stand and controllers look pretty ugly, whilst the screen is fine."
Of course, our Deputy Editor has been a little busy with PSVR this week, trying to turn over as many pieces as possible. Take a look at the various experiences in VR Worlds, before getting the verdict on arcade shooter Super Stardust Ultra VR, and finally settling down for a good old fashioned on-rails horror shooter with Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. I have to say the latter sounds absolutely terrifying, but very addictive.
Keep an eye out for a Quickie on EVE: Gunjack tomorrow (Sunday), as well as much more PSVR content to come.
Well, looks like it's tanks o'clock! Rodent can take on all comers in World of Tanks and not even break a sweat. Have a look.
That would have been my personal Clip of the Week, had it not been for Liam's barrage of turrets that I mentioned in the intro. It was worth the wait.
There's just something so satisfying about seeing automated turrets shred your enemies to pieces.
That's almost it for this week, but we leave you with Born Unto Trouble, from Red Dead Redemption.
