It’s the weekend ya’ll! South Africa is going through some strange things recently and we all must be on edge especially around a kilogram of polony or as it is supposed to be called, bologna. I know, language is confusing. Also, that VAT increase is going to hit us all a little in the pocket and it’s unclear how it will affect games moving forward. Also, Cape Town hasn’t seen that much rain yet, huh? Phew, our fair country is going through some weird and wacky times. It’s a good thing we got games to distract us from the pesky outside world otherwise we’d all go crazy.
This week was an eventful one in your lovely home for gaming. For reviews this week, Dawid didn’t enjoy his time in the Bravo Team, but he did enjoy in the handheld Wipeout Pure. Paul did some anime things in Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, Garth didn’t tear up some pavement in Gravel and Zain was doing some Frantics. I did a very long piece about why Japanese games are perceived as “weird”, Garth took a closer look at the 4X genre and why it can be fun, Timoteo looked at how mental health and art are connected to games and the Burning Question asked which game tested your sanity.
And now, for the winner of our final Switch game during Switch month. The winner of the lovely Super Mario Odyssey is none other than:
Congratulations to Monique for winning this amazing prize! We’ll be in contact to get your prize to you and you can expect to hunt down some moons in no time.
Thank you to Nintendo South Africa for sponsoring Switch Month! You guys are awesome!
March is coming along and most of the big titles are only coming during the tail end of the month, so we’re going to be waiting for just a little bit before the juicy stuff is upon us. You can count on us being there when it does. For now, keep your head above water, or if you’re in Cape Town, in water, and game on. Make sure to interact with us in the comments and on all the social media, we’re always hanging around and ready for a chat.
Free Games Vrydag returns next week! We know many of you are yet to win something, but maybe next week will be your deliverance.
