It’s Saturday morning, and GameSkinny’s Weekend Download is back again.
Here’s most of everything we published this week in one easy to digest roundup, including the official Borderlands 3 release date, that Borderlands: The Handsom Collection is F2P this weekend, tons of Outward and Risk of Rain 2 coverage, Nintendo Labo, and a lot more reviews than we’ve done in a while.
As usual, we’ve added links in case you find a headline that tickles your fancy and want to read more. We’ve also broken things down by category to make it easy to find what you’re looking for. And finally, we’ve left out posts that are now meaningless because the event or sale has already ended.
Sit back. Relax. Enjoy.
