BIG NEWS OF THE WEEK
Death Stranding actor accidentally reveals sequel is in the works
There was absolutely no word at all that a sequel to Death Stranding was in the works. The first game arrived in 2019 to a very divisive response, but still became one of the biggest selling games of that year, not to mention one of the most talked-about.
Cut to this week, and Death Stranding's lead performer Norman Reedus was chatting to Leo, and revealed that "We just started the second one."
This came as a bit of a shock to fans of the game, and considering that they've just started, it is probably fair to say that we won't see a sequel for at least another two to three years.
The game's director Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to react to Reedus' revelation, and while he didn't exactly confirm it as fact, he did playfully, positively respond...

DEAL OF THE WEEK
Guardians of the Galaxy
One of the most purely fun games of recent years, this completely original take on the much-loved Marvel property has very little in common with the big screen adaptation, and a lot more in common with the likes of Tomb Raider and Uncharted.
Guardians of the Galaxy is available for PS4 in Smyths Toy Store marked down from €69.99 to €34.99.
