With everyone seemingly too busy playing Destiny to let me know that they’re playing Destiny it is a short What We Played this week. For myself, I’ve been playing Destiny and find myself agreeing with Stefan. There’s also been plenty of Warframe occupying my PS4 as usual.
Blair has found himself waiting around for some new hardware of a fairly mundane sort:
I’ve been waiting for what feels like years for my replacement PS Vita charger to arrive so I can play Velocity 2X on it… it feels as though it’ll be better on there as opposed to PS4.
I played some Destiny with Peter and Aran, and then some more with Peter and Tef. It’s so much fun in co-op, but doesn’t feel quite as fun as the similar Borderlands yet. Saying that, I’ve only played a couple of hours.
As mentioned above, Peter has also been playing Destiny, but has only got “as far as the beta had already allowed”. “t’s a lot of fun, in spite of reusing the same areas a bit too regularly and the missions feeling a little samey. The core gameplay is quite similar to Halo too so it’s great to see those PlayStation fans experiencing that style done so well for perhaps the first time.”
He’s also played “the FIFA 15 demo on both the Xbox One and PS4”. “It was initially quite disappointing because the momentum made it feel like there’s far too many frames of animation priority when I’m trying to do anything on the pitch. I’m getting used to it though, slowly”. He’s reviewing that one so hopes that it’ll click when he spends a bit more time with the game.
Contributing far more words than me to this article is Dan J:
I’ve been completely engrossed by Minecraft this week on the PS4. I hate pixel-art games usually, but Minecraft is something special. I’ve quite high up on the leaderboards which probably tells me I’ve been playing it too much. The map size is noticeably bigger in size compared to the PS3 edition, so much so I haven’t even managed to find a village yet after hours of exploration! I have, however, managed to build a village of my own including a huge farm. There was even an enemy stronghold located deep beneath my home too.
Other than that I’ve played Flockers for a review. Unfortunately it’s really sluggish on the PS4, but I imagine it’s extremely fun to play on the PC with a mouse.
I’ve also played a little of Velocity 2X. It’s bloody brilliant. Fast paced, explosive and has lots of new additions from Velocity Ultra.
Destiny has just come out too, which I haven’t played a lot of yet. I absolutely loved the Beta and just couldn’t resist buying the full game, even if I can’t afford it right now. I’m only level 3 at the moment though, and with Minecraft taking up most my time, I think I might hold off on Destiny for the time being… if I can.
Lastly I’ve had a few online matches on Call of Duty: Ghosts. I saw the season pass going for £11.99 on Twitter the other day which I thought it was too good to miss. The new maps (12 overall) are much better than the ones included in the normal game in my opinion, so I’m very satisfied with my purchase. There’s even a Predator statue in the Ruins level which I love.
Tuffcub would like you all to know that some of his gaming this week took place “whilst going up the side of an active volcano”. That was a suitably Pandoran landscape for him to be playing Borderlands 2 in. And in case that was not enough there was also “a tiny bit of Velocity x2 which I played in actual Jurassic Park”. I get the impression he’s not wandering around London this week.
Right, I’m off to play more Destiny. Have you played anything else this week?
