The arrival of two new Evercade cartridges has kept me busy, but I've also been dropping back onto some Mega Drive classics thanks to the fact that we're slowly but surely adding gameplay footage to our 'Best Games' guides, starting with the Mega Drive. I'm also still dipping in and out of Radiant Silvergun on Switch – it's one of my all-time favourite games, and being able to play it on the go is a real boon.

This weekend I’m going to spend a bit more time with Bitfans’ new horror game Donum for the Spectrum 128k. I’m a huge fan of first-person adventure games, and with the horror element, this looks like it ticks all the right boxes for me. Currently, I don’t have a 128k handy, so I’ll be playing it via an emulator. I’ll also be checking out the demo for Heartworm on Steam too, which is described as “a retro suburban gothic survival horror/adventure game.” I’ve seen gifs of it retweeted into my Twitter feed a lot lately, and it looks extremely evocative of some of my favourite PlayStation titles.

The Mega Drive Mini 2 is still front and centre in my living room and there are still a lot of gameplay videos to make on that front. Might be impossible to cover them all before the Astro City Mini V arrives as soon as next week but I will surely try.
On the subject of minis, I discovered I am terrible at playing Arkanoid and its sequels with the paddle controller on the Taito EGRET II Mini, so I’m putting the effort into improving that. That’s old age for you.
Elsewhere, it's just Dreamcast as usual. Still having a ton of fun playing Air Force Delta but I sense I will be back to GameCube promptly, because I have unfinished campaigns in both Battalion Wars and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
So, what are you playing this weekend? Let us know with a comment below!
