That’s the Game Developers Conference over and done with for another year, the video games already swept out from the Moscone Center into the street to make room for… a Salesforce convention? Exciting times in sunny San Francisco, no doubt. Our roving reporters still have plent to write up and share from the conference, mind, so do keep an eye on our GDC 2018 tag. Or the website. We’ll post them on the website. In the usual way. This website here. Okay. Bye.
What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!
Alec: I intend to keep on demanding that random internet strangers bring me that horizon. I am very conscious that it is a matter of most likely days before Sea of Thieves‘ weird shortage of substance outstays its welcome and I make it take a long walk off a short plank, but I fully intend to immerse myself in its jolly ambience for every moment until that happens.
Alice: I’d like to check out Plunkbat’s 8-player squad event mode with the laaaaaaaads but I’m not sure I can round up a full eight. Hmm! If not, it’ll probably be on the sofa, continuing to prove my merit as a wrestledad in Yakuza 6 and finishing cleaning up Lovecraftian messes in Bloodborne. I’m still so delighted by the game’s turn in the middle when you realise what seemed terrible before barely even registers as a problem.
Brendan: I’m looking forward to more time with the Boys in Final Fantasy XV, even though it’s probably a terrible, terrible game. I don’t know why but it might be that after 4 days of schmoozing at GDC I crave the artificial comfort of NPC mates with excellent fashion sense and nothing else. You can have too much of humans sometimes.
Graham:Graham is fired.
John:John is fired.
Katharine:Katharine is away, getting married – not a firing offence. Congratulations!
Matt:Matthew is on holiday – nnnot a firing offence? Ah, I’m going soft in my old age.
