Sure, it’s E3 next week, but that doesn’t mean we’ve downed controllers and stopped playing games. Far from it, and despite a rather barmy week of leaks and hurried news writing, we’ve played plenty of games.
Case in point, Kris played Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter for review, but while he enjoyed the cases and the narrative, he found it to be technically very poor. But you get to play as a dog, and he said “that’s pretty great.”
He also played Steppy Pants on iOS, which is a bit like QWOP or Daddy Long Legs, tapping to move each foot, one at a time, with challenging physics making it fun and interesting to play.
Tuffcub’s had friends around, so he broke out a bit of Rocket League, which is his go to party game. When they left and went home, it was back to Just Cause 3 to run around and blow stuff up!
There was a slightly tearful farewell for Geralt, as Aran played through The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine expansion, rounding off CD Projekt Red’s fantastic RPG trilogy.
Meanwhile, Jim’s finally got around to finishing off the merely “good” Assassin’s Creed: SYndicate, and is hacking and slashing his way to God of War: Ascension’s platinum trophy. He’s also been dipping into Uncharted 4’s multiplayer, but has noticed that its loot chests drop fewer cosmetic items than they once did.
Miguel wins this week, as he’s been on holiday in Japan! With all the running around and exploring he’s been doing, there’s not been much time for gaming, though he did pick up a Project Diva-esque rhythm action game called Miracle Girls Festival.
Rounding things off, my own gaming time saw me take Wales to the Euros semi finals in PES 16, before getting dumped out by Spain, losing 3-2 in the last few minutes. It was truly
heartbreaking rage inducing. I also got a few more matches in as Mei in Overwatch – I think I’m getting the hang of how to play her now! – and powered up my PS Vita for the first time in a couple of months, in order to play SteamWorld Heist, which is lovely really rather good!
Now it’s over to you. What have you played and achieved this week?
