The initial batch of PlayStation VR Bundles went up for pre-order aaaaand they sold out; get ready for hyper-inflated eBay listings. Indie phenomenon Punch Club sold 330,000 copies, but was also illegally downloaded 1.6 million times; 1 our of 5 ain't bad? Pirates, man. And Resident Evil celebrated its 20th anniversary on March 22; the game that's still the crown holder of the Best Jump Scare of All Time (hint: dog scene.)
What are you playing this weekend?

This weekend will see me continuing an annual tradition I have on this site by reviewing Out of the Park Baseball '17. I don't think I've ever reviewed an entry in this series lower than an 8 out of 10. While I'm not normally that good at sports simulators—or sports in general—the series has always been top notch. I'm expecting the same this year. Beyond that, I'm also working on a preview for Portal Knights, as it's currently on Steam Early Access. So far it's not too bad; kind of like mixing an RPG with some Minecraft elements.

I'm wrapping up my review for Hyrule Warriors Legends, so I'll be getting a lot of that in. I'm also still pushing my new PC with the majority of my Steam library. So far it's handling everything without breaking a sweat. With the new Doom coming out in a few months, I think it's time to play through Doom 3 again, BFG Edition or otherwise. I know Doom 3 wasn't everybody's cup of tea, but I have a lot of fond memories of that game and the many times it made me jump and panic.

With The Division behind me, I'm going to be digging into Quantum Break this weekend. I'm going in blind as I've tried to ignore everything written about the game; I wanted to go in with a clean slate. So far I'm actually impressed with what I have played. The mix of guns and time travel powers is a big change from most other games on the market. I'm also hoping to dig into Day of the Tentacle Remastered this weekend. The original is rightly considered one of the best adventure games ever created. I'm interested in seeing if the game holds up.

I'm taking down the Mechanist and his tin-can army of jerk-faced robots in Fallout 4: Automatron. Sure, I'll spend time assembling my own robo-companion too, but, given the option, I'll probably just mesh together a Fallout version of Ava from Ex Machina. Y'know. For science. Is it totally weird that I just named my robot Alicia Vikander? Then there's Catlateral Damage sitting on my—oh, nope, the cat just knocked it off the shelf. So, that should be fun, running around the house, throwing left kitty hooks and right kitty hooks at everything, letting my owner come home to the aftermath of a feline destruction derby. I'll be reviewing both games for the PS4, and helping my six-year-old through the trickier parts of Fez in between.
