The Fun Forecast: 2nd-9th April

The Fun Forecast: 2nd-9th April
Greetings minion. I am Michael Fish from the 1970s. I have absorbed the soul of my body double, the so-called ‘Alternate Michael Fish from the 1970s’, and this is the Fun Forecast.

There’s a gradual spread of balls across all regions, flurries of both pinballs and devilish baseballs, while a Tetris block weather warning has been issued across all 3DS units.

Greetings friends. I am Alternate Michael Fish from the 1970s. In the past week Slightly Fuzzy John Kettley travelled back in time to warn me what I would become, and the havoc I would wreak on my fellow Weathermen. Here is this week’s Fun Forecast.

Fun Forecast: 19th - 26th March
My name is Slightly Fuzzy John Kettley. I’m sad to report that Bill Giles from the Mid-90s has fallen in battle. I am the new leader of the resistance. There is no fate but what we make, and this is the Fun Forecast.

It’s a quiet week on the primary download front, despite an exciting flurry of Sine Mora on XBLA and the faint guff of Rayman 3 HD crossing over the channel from France.

We will defeat the evil magical tyrant from the 1970s who has poisoned this land, or we will die trying. To the trees!

The Fun Forecast: 12th-18th March
I am Michael Fish from the 1970s and I am magnanimous in victory. Lay down your weapons.

This week there are brief flurries of robots over Playstation and Xbox download services, alongside a strong downpour of Journey – so don’t go out without an umbrella or weak human emotions.

Bill Giles from the mid-90s will no longer trouble this glorious new era with base accusations of black magic. Onwards!

The Fun Forecast: 5th-12th March
Hello! My name is Bill Giles from the mid-90s, and here’s this week’s Fun Forecast. This week a swirling natural disaster is approaching XBLA in the form of I Am Alive, while a warm front means Trine 2 will land on the Playstation Store like a fine drizzle. That’s about it from me but, finally, it must be said that I (and many of my peers) are of the conviction that Michael Fish from the 1970s IS an evil magician. Let him do his very worst. We’re not afraid anymore Michael.

The Fun Forecast: 13th-20th February

“Hello there. I’m Michael Fish from 1987, and here’s this week’s Fun Forecast.

There are various exciting downloadable titles coming in from the West, on all major console platforms.

Earlier on today a woman phoned the BBC and said she’d heard there was a Mass Effect 3 demo on the way to PSN and XBL.

Well, if you’re watching, don’t worry. There isn’t.”
