It’s been a busy week on my end, with a number of game events that included a first real look at the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport. It’s sure to bring GT fans a lot of what they want from a new GT game, which is basically more GT, but it’s not the series revolution that some might have been hoping for. Aside from that, I’ve spent most of my time with Total War: Warhammer, hammering my way through hordes of Orcs, undead and the legions of Chaos, on my way to reviewing the game. It’s very good, and a perfect match between two venerable franchises, with plenty of room to grow over the coming months and years.
Normally, when I write up a What We Played, Jim ends up going last, but I figure it’s about time that we shake things up. He’s been playing Uncharted 4 quite a bit, and has been diving into the multiplayer on a near daily basis. After grabbing the platinum trophy for The Witcher 3 last week, he’s been ploughing through the Hearts of Stone DLC in preparation for Blood and Wine, which is out at the end of the month. There was also the not inconsiderable matter of reviewing Homefront: The Revolution, which held promise but ultimately disappointed.
Dave‘s also busied himself with reviews, though some of these are yet to be published. He thoroughly enjoyed Doom, giving it a glowing 9/10, but has now started on the Far Harbor DLC for Fallout 4… unfortunately, he says he’s “majorly messed up” and that “the outcome of it all was somewhat depressing”. Want to know what he did? You’ll find out next week.
You can find out right now what Dom thought of all things Fire Emblem, though. This morning saw the third and final review for Fire Emblem Fates, as he shared his thoughts on the Conquest side to the triple release game. That’s not all, as Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE also has plenty of Fire Emblem in it alongside Shin Megami Tensei, and he’s previewed that game.
Finally, we turn to Aran and Tuffcub. They’ve reviewed Shadwen and Shadow of the Beast, respectively, but both have also been playing Uncharted 4. It took a while to grow on Tuffcub, who dislike the start but quickly fell for it after that, while Aran is also a while a way from finishing it, but already says it’s “turning into the perfect ending to the series.”
But how about you? What have you been up to in the world of gaming this week?
