The last week has been an incredibly busy one for the gaming journalist. Readers likely need not reminding that E3 2018 has now come and gone and our keyboards are still warm from the furious typing that followed it.

E3 2018 And Looking To The Future

This year, E3 seemed like a little less of an explosion of surprises as many games were revealed or leaked before we got to see them properly revealed. As a result, seeing them in action just seemed to have a bit less of an impact. Taking the whole of E3 into account, how did you feel about it this year? Sean takes a look at the conference as a whole and shares his thoughts.

Nintendo Takes A Small Knock After E3

Weekly News Roundup Issue #20 - Nintendo takes a hit

While on the outside, we see lavish presentations at E3. All lights, fancy talks and hopefully, not forced applause.

Weekly News Roundup Issue #20 - The Fortnite Kids of '18

In the quiet little moments among the hubbub of E3, it suddenly occurred to me just how much flak Fortnite has been receiving in the wider media.

In our coverage, we take a look at all the reasons you’ll be looking at Amazon for new computer parts if Cyberpunk is something you want to play on PC. 

House Flipper Is Deceptively Good

Weekly News Roundup Issue #20 - House Flipper

You may have seen House Flipper floating about on Steam sales pages from time to time since its recent release. You see a fairly inocuous looking title that promises the satisfaction of taking a run-down home and juicing up back to sellable glory. It would likely not appeal to the action junkies out there.
