A little over three years ago, we were all rejoicing in the return of the PSN after that outage and here at TSA we took a look at how we’d kept our thumbs busy during that time. Aside from a few weeks off for good behaviour, I’ve been here every week since letting you know what the team’s been playing.
To celebrate WWP’s third anniversary (and not simply because it’s late and I’m knackered, honest guv. *wink*) I’ll let the team speak for themselves this week. Kicking things off is Aran:
In NBA 2K14 I demanded a trade from the Phoenix Suns due to their poor record and that they wouldn’t put me in the starting line up despite have an average of 34 points a game. I got picked up by the 76ers and we’re on a winning run.
And as for the robustly non-stick Stefan:
I’ve basically only had time for Transistor on the weekend, which was simply phenomenal, and then Driveclub early in the week. That trip was pretty cool, getting a really open behind-the-scenes look at the game.
You should read the words I wrote about them both!
Too, who I think we can promote to simply Dan by now, still sounds like he’s playing a few too many games for someone who should be busy with exams.
Not a lot from me this week as I’m still playing the exams game which really isn’t fun at all!
It’s the usual account though. I got scared on Outlast and rage quit because I was too frightened. I managed to play a handful of matches online on Call of Duty Ghosts which was great, becasue with my terrible internet I’ve been battling it out against bots for most of the week, which gets quite boring.
I’ve just pre-ordered Watch Dogs this morning too. I traded in Killzone: Shadow Fall (despite being pretty, it was nowhere near as good as 2 and 3), Rayman Legends (again not as good as Origins) and Battlefield 4 (too many connection woes) to cover the cost. Just hoping it will be as good as it sounds!
And somehow Dom is still finding time for gaming between shifts behind the bar in his pub, which sounds like the ideal location for the next TSA Beerio Kart Championship:
This week I’ve been mostly trying to tackle my backlog of games, so I’ve been playing Child Of Light on PS4 which is fantastic – the combat reminds me of Grandia 2 on the Dreamcast, which I loved – as well as Dirt Showdown and Uncharted 3 on PS3. I’m finally getting into Uncharted 3, after a couple of really good chapters I’m getting towards the finale, and while it’s not as good as Uncharted 2 it’s definitely a lot better than any number of other games!
Rounding things out this week is TSA’s resident old-timer, Peter:
I played Wolfenstein: The New Order for review. I really enjoyed it, even though it could do with a bit more polish in places. It’s a nice, speedy shooter with lovely crunchy shotguns which carries on the id Software lineage nicely.
I also played loads of FTL on iPad. I still can’t beat the final boss, even on the easiest difficulty setting, but I love the sci-fi setting and the way the systems are so well designed to work with each other.
What have you played this week?
