Going swimming is out of the question with how bloody cold it is right now, so over the weekend I'll be having a virtual dip instead.
Most of my weekend is going to be devoted towards two games, both of which are dropping about the same time. Maneater, aka. Shark RPG, is a game I've been looking forward to playing through for a while. But along the same time, there's also Minecraft Dungeons. Both should be entertaining in their own ways, but I'm especially keen to see how Maneater holds up towards the end game.
Out of all the games this year, Maneater has been close to the top of my list. It just sounds like a winner: you play a shark, looking for revenge on a bounty hunter who killed your shark mother and taking out your anger on humans along the way. Unsurprisingly, flying through the air and snatching an unsuspecting tourist's arm is pretty entertaining.
Another title that I'm interested in checking out - and we'll be doing that later today on stream - is Amazon's Crucible. I've heard absolutely no buzz about the game whatsoever, including nothing from Amazon themselves. That's generally never a good sign, especially when you think about the long, long time that Crucible has been in development. That aside, I'm also wondering what it'll be like to play in Australia. Games like these can often be a really crappy experience if you're not in Europe or the United States, since the developers often tend to focus on their largest playerbases if the game doesn't take off.
Amazon's in-house developers are about to launch their first blockbuster game. It's not the MMO you're probably thinking of, but a free-to-play shooter called Crucible, a game that looks awfully inspired by every popular multiplayer game from the last few years.
So, a hell of a lot to playthrough this weekend. I'll probably also continue rolling with Lonely Mountains: Downhill on the Switch, which has been scratching that Tribes itch nicely.
What are you playing this weekend?
