GameSkinny’s Weekend Download is back to bring you the week that was here on the site.
Here’s most of everything we published this week in one easy to digest roundup. While we didn’t cover everything, we did report on when the PlayStation 5 won’t be releasing, all (new) things Persona 5S, more Magic: The Gathering, Mortal Kombat 11 (although our review is still pending), Dark Devotion, World War Z, and, of all things, Minecraft.
Sit back. Relax. Enjoy. It’s the weekend. What else are you gonna’ do? Play video games?
