A very quick one for you this week as sadly only a few of us actually seem to have had much time for gaming. All I’ve managed is a couple of hours of Mass Effect 3 online at the weekend to tick off another weekend challenge.
Tuffcub has finished the “very enjoyable” DmC before moving onto the “rather good” Need For Speed: Most Wanted on his PS Vita. “It looks rather flat but it rockets about like a whippet with its bum on fire,” he said.
For some multiplayer fun this week he’s played some classic Alien Breed co-op with Alex and indulged in some good old-fashioned split-screen racing action in Blur “with hubby to decide who gets up and makes the coffee Sunday morning”.
Aran spent an entire day finishing off the campaign in Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 and coming to the conclusion that it’s “pretty good”. Asked to expand on that he said that the pacing was good and the set pieces weren’t too “in your face”.
Having begun the co-op campaign in Far Cry 3 he’s finding it “surprisingly interesting”. On top of that, if you can find a good group to play the multiplayer with it will highlight just how well it’s been done. Of course his NBA 2K13 career continues, and he’s working through the season improving both his offensive and defensive play, waiting for a big team to pick him up.
Alex has been playing Dead Space 3 – you can read his initial thoughts on the site this morning – but simply hasn’t any time for anything else.
Finally, Kris has been playing a little FIFA with friends. Rather than his usual hopeless attempt to push Brighton to be the best in the world, this time he was just generally hopeless. Despite playing for three hours with a variety of partners he failed to pick up a single win, or even score a solitary goal.
A particular low point was a 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, a performance that was even worse than the actual match earlier this season. Clearly he needs to get some practice in.
So what have you all been up to?
