You know those weeks when you feel like you’ve played a lot but in reality, you’ve only played a lot of one game? That’s me this week; I’ve barely had time for LittleBigPlanet 3, and have mostly been focusing on Far Cry 4 for our review. I’ve also lacked time for the Binding of Isaac which has been sorely disappointing.
Oh, I got a dog too and so far all he does is sleep, walk, and go to the toilet. It’s an early review at the moment – I’ve heard that he has up to fifteen years of gameplay left in him – but I’m tentatively scoring him 8/10 because when he does wake up he can be a lot of fun despite the repetitive mechanics.
Tuffcub is enjoying GTA V on PS4, describing it as “lovely”, meanwhile he’s playing more Destiny and enjoying the “tweaks and improvements” which the latest patch has brought. On Vita, he’s gone for Borderlands 2, Minutes, and Tiny Troopers. Oh, and he’s also been playing even “more Destiny”.
Also lovely, as described by Teflon, is LittleBigPlanet 3. It’s buggy, though, as you might have seen from our stream. Beyond that, there has been “the wintry wartime strategising of Company of Heroes 2, the usual bouts of Destiny, a little dabbling with Driveclub and the chaotic mischief of Far Cry 4.”
I’ve also been setting up my fourth PS4 – well, kind of fourth – sticking a 2TB drive in there, getting in a muddle because of not having the right OS install file (I swear the full sized installer is only ~900MB and not ~200MB because it has The Playroom bundled in), and then slowly but surely installing all the games I own and getting them patched up.
He’s actually lying about it being his fourth PS4, by the way. But that’s just a technicality, and it’s a story for another time unfortunately. Still, it sounds like a bit of a pain, doesn’t it?
Peter played the Mario Kart 8 DLC with me and Tef. “t’s quite a lot of stuff for not very much money and the new tracks are – for the most part – great additions. I really like the concept and simplicity of the Excitebike track too.” If you’re not sure what that means, basically it’s quite a simple track but it’s randomly generated in terms of ramps and obstacles each time. Have a look at the trailer below.
He’s also fallen for Far Cry 4’s “open world madness”. “I’ve been distracted by exploration, side quests and other general messing about, rather than getting on with the story in a timely fashion. It’s ace though, if a little unfair about its animal attacks. I mean, those bastard eagles… what is their problem?”
Moving on to another game, he said, “It’s gorgeous, massive and just as much fun as always.” Can you guess what he’s talking about here? Of course, it’s GTA V, which he streamed for us earlier this week and wrote a little bit about too. “We’re going to get some beautiful screenshots from it now there’s the first person view and all the new lighting and textures.”
Aran has spent a startling 28 hours (later) in Shadow of Mordor. More impressively, he actually managed to squeeze some NBA 2K15 in too. He’s now in the starting lineup for the Atlanta Hawks, which isn’t bad for a rookie season. Apparently.
What has been served up on your gaming platters this week?
