It's a cliche at this point: Every esports experience starts with you sitting in your DXRacer gaming chair, watching some Dota 2 footage in Windows Media Player, with a half-eaten pizza and several print magazines on either side. Then, a redheaded babe wearing a peaked cap and stiletto pumps rings your doorbell to deliver your VR headset.
The lowest possible rating a FIFA 18 player can have is 46 out of 100, and there are 10 players plumbing these depths. Nine of them, including Grimsby Town's Max Wright and Scunthorpe United's Leslie Sackey, are professional athletes. The tenth is a former youth goalkeeper roped in to get around an administrative loophole.
You know what time of year it is: the week in the calendar where everything goes full sports, and old favourites re-appear. FIFA 18 drops on Friday, but for nostalgics it will be the release of the Mini SNES (and Star Fox 2) that has the biggest appeal.
Beyond that, it's a bit of a quiet week. There are some major titles before Friday though: a Total Warhammer sequel, Cuphead, Ruiner, another Danganronpa game, and One Piece comes to the Switch. Here's This Week In Games.
