Friday has arrived, bringing with it a fresh End of the Week recap here at Prima Games! If you’re unfamiliar with our End of the Week recaps, they’re a type of feature we publish every Friday as a way to help readers navigate through all of the content posted to the site during the week.

No excess scrolling or searching required. We also have a Staff Chat section at the bottom of our recap where you can get to know the Prima Games team a bit better. And if you use Twitch, we regularly do a Twitch livestream on Fridays starting at 5:30 p.m. (EST) to 6:30 p.m. (EST) over on twitch.tv/primagames.

With that out of the way, let’s jump in and take a look at all of the content posted to Prima Games during the week of November 1 through November 5.

The Animal Crossing 2.0 update is finally out! What do you think of the new content so far?

I haven't played it! Sorry haha, Animal Crossing just isn't really my thing.

Thoughts on the new Elden Ring gameplay that was shown?

I haven't watched it! Sorry haha, Elden Ring Just isn't really my thing. For real though, I'm not super interested in it although I'll likely check it out eventually. Just haven't gotten to it yet. 

How do you feel about Crystal Dynamics reversing the decision to have paid consumables in Marvel’s Avengers?

It's pretty silly it was a thing they tried in the first place, although after the financial reports from Square Enix it isn't super surprising they (royal they) felt the need to try it out. 

Any new game releases you’re looking forward to in November or December? 

Well, SMT V was The Game For Me this year, so now that I'm knee-deep in that I'm pretty stoked. Aside from that it's all about Endwalker, baby. 

Favorite piece(s) on the site this week, and why?

I love that we can just publish a Kirby-themed gift guide and nobody can do anything about it. 

Playing any fun games over the weekend? 

Yeah! I'll be really diving into Blue Reflection: Second Light over the weekend for a review. Gust games realy speak to me on some level, you feel me? 

Are there any TV, movie, anime, or music recommendations that you’d like to share? 

Y'all the Chucky show rules. I finally have something to talk about here! Of course ya gotta watch Curse and Cult of Chucky to get the most out of it. Chucky lore, yo. 

Bonus question, who are your favorite characters and Villagers in Animal Crossing? 

I like K.K. which is probably a lame answer but hey, not a regular player!

The Animal Crossing 2.0 update is finally out! What do you think of the new content so far?

 It's pretty solid. A lot fo quality of life updates that are much appreciated. Still digging through it all but it's nice to have a reason o come back. 

Thoughts on the new Elden Ring gameplay that was shown?

 I've never finished a From Software game and idk if Elden Ring will be the one that I do finish. I'll probably give it a try because it does look unique. 

How do you feel about Crystal Dynamics reversing the decision to have paid consumables in Marvel’s Avengers?

 The problem with Marvel's Avengers isn't its microtransactions so I'm more annoyed that this is what the conversation around that game has become, Destiny 2 has had similar stuff for a while, but you don't see people complaining about that. 

Any new game releases you’re looking forward to in November or December? 

 Halo Infinite and Battlefield are going to be more popcorn flick multiplayer games which I'm excited for. 

Favorite piece(s) on the site this week, and why?

 Honestly just all of the Animal Crossing guides, it's been a busy week for that. 

Playing any fun games over the weekend? 

 Going to hop into Forza Horizon 5 and check it out, but other than that probably just more Animal Crossing. 

Are there any TV, movie, anime, or music recommendations that you’d like to share? 

 Since it's Christmas season now, legally you should only be listening to Jimmy eat World's cover of Last Christmas 

Bonus question, who are your favorite characters and Villagers in Animal Crossing? 

 Audie is my favorite Animal crossing villager and my homie for life.

The Animal Crossing 2.0 update is finally out! What do you think of the new content so far?

I think it's awesome, there's a lot to play around with and keep busy with. I'm kind of sad this will be the last major content update for Animal Crossing, but it's nice to see how much they've added either way! 

Thoughts on the new Elden Ring gameplay that was shown?

It looks like a FromSoftware game, that's for sure. I do think visually the game looks impressive, and there's a lot to do when it comes to combat. I'm even more looking forward to getting to play the full game after seeing the latest footage shown.

How do you feel about Crystal Dynamics reversing the decision to have paid consumables in Marvel’s Avengers?

I think it's awesome when developers listen to player feedback and take action. A lot of people weren't happy with the paid boosts, and while Crystal Dynamics could have easily ignored those complaints, they actually said we hear you we've removed them. 

Any new game releases you’re looking forward to in November or December? 

Forza Horizon 5 is on the list, also looking forward to Halo Infinite.

Favorite piece(s) on the site this week, and why?

Loved the review from Lucas for Shin Megami Tensei V, and all of Jesse's guides for ACNH

Playing any fun games over the weekend? 

I'll be getting back into Animal Crossing, always Tetris, and I might also play a bit more Hades. I got back into it after taking a trip and playing quite a bit of it while on the plane.

Are there any TV, movie, anime, or music recommendations that you’d like to share? 

I got the chance to see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings not too long ago and it quickly became my favorite Marvel movie. It's really good and I highly recommend checking it out. 

Bonus question, who are your favorite characters and Villagers in Animal Crossing? 

I really love Blathers and his hatred for bugs, as for my favorite Villagers hmm... I'll list both ones I have and don't have... probably Ankha, Bob, Chrissy, Merry, and Raymond.
