Happy Vrydag everyone! Today has basically been dominated by Kratos since it’s officially God of War day. I will unfortunately not be joining in on the fun since my copy is sitting somewhere in a warehouse in Cape Town and I’ll only get it when it’s most convenient. I think a lot of us are cursing couriers and retailers today. But the game will eventually be in our hands and then we can finally experience what all the hubbub is about. Unless you don’t own a PS4, then whoops, that’s a bit of a bummer. The temptation must be quite strong today to sell your kidneys and/or first born children.
We were quite busy this week bringing you some of the best exclusive content that your eyes can want. For reviews, Charlie gave God of War a perfect score, one of the few on the site, Dawid was being drunk in Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Zain blasted into the past with Burger Time DELUXE and also explored a magical kingdom in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom. I illustrated the magic of gaming soundtracks and Timoteo took us on memory lane again with how Nintendo saved the world. The Burning Question this week asked how you feel about paid DLC and Dawid showed us his favourite fictional race tracks.
And now, the winner of Pokken Tournament DX, a game that can be unfortunately misinterpreted if you’re Afrikaans, is none other than the gorgeous:
Congratulation to George for winning this fantastic prize. We’ll be in touch with you soon to get your prize to you so that you can punch some Pikachus.
Thanks to Nintendo South Africa for sponsoring this week’s prize.
We’ll come off the God of War high soon enough, but right now let’s take a moment to celebrate a game that has managed to blast through all expectations to become something special. We don’t often get that. In other news, it seems that the Battle Royale craze is reaching some kind of tipping point and you bet that we’ll be seeing the popular mode a lot more in the future. I already warned of the dangers of this phenomenon, but all we can really do is ride this wave wherever it goes. Just be prepared to go looting in houses far more often than you initially thought.
Free Games Vrydag returns next week! Again, it’s been pretty difficult to secure a God of War prize for you beautiful people, but we’ll still be giving away stuff whenever we can. Next week you get to play with kittens.
