The good, the bad and the ugly of the past week – 11 March 2016

Somebody decided to finally turn off the rain. Is that the sun I see? Hello old friend, I’ve not seen you all week!

Best Stories

Alessandro and I have not been able to shut up about Overwatch, so seeing Blizzard’s shooter get an official release date made us super happy. It was first leaked, and later confirmed that it would be releasing on May 24th. Hey, that’s just two days before my birthday… WINK WINK.

How far would you go to get a game you desperately wanted? Would you drive long distances to get your hands on it? These two would, and they did.

I love me some Hearthstone, but I utterly detest building decks. Thankfully, Blizzard have a solution. They’re introducing Deck Recipes to the game, which is perfect for people like me who just want to klap some cards.

Worst Stories

I would not say no to a remake of the very first Metal Gear Solid. There was one in the works actually… unofficially. Did Konami interfere? We don’t know, but the fan-made Metal Gear Solid remake has been cancelled. Snake? SNAAAAAAAAAKE???

It’s never nice hearing that a game has been cancelled, and that a studio may be closing down too. That happened this week though. Fables Legends got canned, and their makers, Lionhead, may be shutting down.

People are loving The Division so far. You know what they all hate though? People who decide to break out into infinite exercise regimes in the middle of doorways.

Lastly, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is out today on Xbox One. The PC version however, has been delayed. I’m literally crying right now. Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
