Stefan reports that he “cleft” his way through the last few missions of Saints Row IV with TSA regular Bunimomike. Though it does sound like it was more dragging than cleaving, he felt it necessary to say that it was a good laugh “even if it dragged on a little”. At least I’m assuming he’s talking about the game and not about gaming with Mike…
Other than that he’s carried on where he left off with Watch Dogs last week, e.g., he’s still mainly “titting around” in the game.
Disappointingly, getting a road vehicle on the back of a boat just sees it fall off once the boat is moving. Physics simulations still have a depressingly long way to go in games.
And I don’t know if he’s passing comment on the game’s loading time or something as he wanted to mention that he’s also finished reading a book, Leviathan Wakes. I remember reading John Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes years ago, is this a sequel? Anyway, he reckons it’s a good book and for those who don’t like reading it’s being made into a TV show.
Dom reviewed Soul Sacrifice Delta for us this week calling it “a great update to a good game”. After impulse buying Watch Dogs at it’s midnight launch he’s enjoying it more than he thought he would despite not being exactly overwhelmed.
His son has finally managed to help dear old Dad through the tougher spots of The LEGO Movie game:
My son who was super excited [spoiler alert] to discover a spider robot boss towards the end, as they’re two of his favourite things!
If bosses are one of his favourite things already he should have little trouble climbing the corporate ladder. Dan (formerly of the Too variety) is the next to be less than whelmed by Watch Dogs only managing to utter a fairly unconvincing “it’s okay”.
While he doesn’t mention anything about the physics of boat decks he does say the the driving is “terrible”. “It’s too clunky, and every camera angle hurts my eyes.” He adds that luckily the combat and hacking are better, particularly the focus ability which he’s “loving”.
Bravada is “a fun little game that does suffer from a bit of repetitiveness” but is still worth a look for being a bit different says Aran. Meanwhile, Concursion, which you’ll be able to read about more fully next week is “a mash up of all the things and it can be amazing and frustrating at the same time”.
He’s also been playing some of FIFA 14’s World Cup Ultimate Team where having made the mistake of picking a team to represent England he is now struggling to get out of the group stages. Maybe FIFA’s more realistic than I give it credit for.
Peter is another psyching himself up for the World Cup with FIFA 14:
It’s great that it’s all free, even though it is quite obviously trying to funnel you into buying more FUT card packs. The gameplay is slightly tweaked too, so crosses seem harder to get away with and tackles are a little more tricky to time. Welbeck scored a screamer from about 30 yards out, in case anyone wants to have a little wager on England’s first scorer next week.
Given what the United fans I know have to say about Welbeck that’s not a bet I’d place. Still at least Peter’s also found the time to go and play among real stars not simply overpaid pig’s bladder kickers…
I’ve played a bit more Eve. Still not enough to really know what’s going on but enough that I space-murdered a fool for trying to steal my salvage. I, of course, immediately felt like Captain Mal. I got a new ship as well, it was a gift for delivering documents or something, I’m not really sure. I do tend to just fly around looking at nebulas, rather than actually trying to understand what’s really going on.
A busy week hasn’t left me much gaming time so for a change I’ve hardly played any Warframe. I have taken a Hornet out for a quick spin in Star Citizen’s Arena Commander though. Very, very pretty. Work also means I’m going to be effectively missing out on E3 so I’m thinking next weekend will be all about the trailers and catching up with all the show’s news here on TSA.
Have you played much this week?
