If you remember from last week there was something of a rivalry developing around the game Threes! Well this week one of those rivals lays no claim to playing it whilst the other has played a great deal. I’ll leave you to decide what that says about who is still top of the leaderboard…
It’s Stefan who has been playing “Threes! Threes! and some more Threes!” this week. When not trying to topple someone else from their perch in that game he’s played “a fair old bit of” Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. He says that’s “a good bit of fun whether it’s co-op or competitive multiplayer you’re looking for” and laments its likely long absence from Sony platforms.
Dom is the first of a number of us to have been played the recently release Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. In a nutshell, “it’s awesome!” is his opinion and he’s glad he waited until its appearance on PS4. However he does “think that Lara dies in quite a spectacular fashion a bit too often but it’s probably unavoidable when she’s constantly falling off things.”
He’s also played a bit of Need for Speed: Rivals and LEGO: Marvel Superheroes. Of the latter he says that it’s “stupidly long really, with every time I play it barely advancing the % completion. I guess that’s good value for money!”
Our next raider of definitive tombs is DanToo. “Still not a huge fan of the story; it’s so cliché and the other crew members are so bloody annoying. Looked wonderful though, and I’m currently going back through it to collect all the relics and documents. Not that keen about the multiplayer.”
He’s dabbled a bit more with Battlefield 4’s online multiplayer which has left him wondering “if [he's] bad or if the team [he's] in is always bad. Always seem to get smashed every conquest match.” The latest store update saw him picking up Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry which he’s “really enjoying” so far.
Rather self-indulgently Blair has been playing his own “game which I’m making for Uni. Over and over again. It’s not really far into development, and very much a prototype but it’s going okay I think.” Where’s the free evaluation copy for all TSA staff and readers Blair? While not playing games for Uni work or watching the “amazing” House of Cards Season 2 he’s played Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and 10 Second Ninja.
Tuffcub rounds out our list this week and is another who has been getting to know the twists and turns of
Tooms Tombs. “Lovely touch with the [REDACTED] at the end but I was starting to get bored of platforms, houses and other things which have been on the island for many many years, suddenly blowing/crumbling just as Lara reaches them. Made it feel very game-y.”
Then other than the obligatory Killzone: Shadow Fall he professes to not being sure why he’s been playing Cookie Clicker. “There appears to be no goal apart from get more cookies. I am now generating 1,405,179 cookies per second and it is starting to loose it’s appeal slightly but.. just a few more cookies.” So he’s less a big bear and more a cookie monster this week.
Also played some co-op Lego Marvel Super whatsits with industry tart, Sean Labode. Quite fun for a few hours but we got bored and decided to eat pizza and tease bearzes online instead.
I’ll leave you to make of that what you will whilst you tell us what you’ve been playing this week.
