The weekend is for probably getting to the work I didn’t get to during the week, goddammit. But some of that work is video games, so that’s something.

This week’s Cyberpunk 2077 previews got me itching to play some cyberpunk games while I wait. I never actually completed my no kill/no detection run of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, one of my favourite stealth games. While I finished Mankind Divided, I rushed it a bit. I’m wondering if it’s worth popping back into one of them this weekend.

Cyberpunk 2077 Is Complex And Overwhelming, But It Works

Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t quite click with me until I met Certo.

What about you? What are you playing?


  • Finishing off an update to my mod in Fallout 4 (with testing)
    Metro Exodus (would like to finished this before playing TLOU2)
    The Last of Us 2 (still in the Tutorial stage)

  • The Steam sale means I’ve picked up a few games I’ve been eyeing off, including Dicey Dungeons and The 8bit-style Bloodstained game. I’ll also probably cave and buy Danganronpa 3 before too long.

  • If I have the time, probably Gears of War 5. I just played Gears of War 4 this week, it was… fine. It just lacked any real excitement or depth, or payoff, or explanation for the world-building, and they really dropped the ball with JD, like at least give him a personality! I’ve heard they do some interesting things with 5’s story. I have to admit though that those robot balls crashing down and destroying everything was really cool!

    • Update: Holy crap, Gears 5 is waaaaay better than 4! I can honestly say it’s just straight up a pretty great game.

  • I have gone back to Rainbow Six Siege. The feeling of tension in this game is unmatched in any other game.
