Good afternoon everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great week/weekend! I spent most of my gaming time over the past few days playing the Modern Warfare Campaign and I've been very impressed with what I've seen. Our review for the game is in the works however, I am delaying it a little until they can sort some of the glaring issues within multiplayer as in my opinion, its borderline unplayable at the moment! Aside from that, I've also been playing a little bit of Luigi’s Mansion which will also be getting the review treatment very soon. Its been great so far and offers very different gameplay when compared to some of the previous big Switch exclusives. I'm a little busy this week but I plan to have coverage up over the next few days and hopefully, initial thoughts for Need For Speed and Death Stranding this Friday! Moving on then, we did get a fair bit of news over the weekend including the announcements of Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4, two huge games that a lot of people are excited about. I would imagine that both of these titles will be available for next gen consoles when they release and speaking of which, I heard rumours last week that Xbox is planning to launch a contract based solution to next gen whereby gamers can pay monthly for their system and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions, sort of like we have seen with mobile phones. This could be pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing your thoughts on that idea down below! Whilst your down in the comments, let me know what you’re playing at the moment as a lot of my mates are playing all sorts of games!
