Is it the weekend yet? Looks like it is to me. That’s a good thing, because I’ve a bit of sleep to catch up on…
So it’s been a bit of a busy one for me, and there’s one game I’ve played that will have to stay a secret for the time being, but I sunk some time into Battlefield 1 over the weekend and played some more of Titanfall 2, in the run up to our review at the start of the week. There was also some dabbling with Sports Bar VR and I kind of enjoyed playing a bit of Rhythm Paradise Megamix, even if it’s not actually all that rhythmically complex.
But I wasn’t the one to review Rhythm Paradise, that was Dave, who found time to do that and continue trying to take over the world in Civilization VI, before jetting of to Mexico of all places! He has some ‘mooning to do.
Steve’s been busying himself with finishing the “sublime” Ori, as well as working on Darkest Dungeon and Exile’s End for review. He’s also become a bit obsessed with Dead Island Retro Revenge and kicked off a playthrough of Doom – a game I really need to find time to play soon.
Another Id property was on the cards for Tuffcub, who played a little of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, got through the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands and popped in to check out Destiny a few times. I’m guessing this was to check out the new Halloween stuff, which is why Jake made sure to visit it in his own very busy week.
If there’s one person you can trust to brighten up What We Played with Japanese games, it’s Miguel, and he doesn’t disappoint this week, except that there’s more of a horror slant to suit this time of year. There was the Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel DLC, as well as Yomawari: Night Alone, but the tone was lightened when he dipped back into Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies and put some time into Blazblue Central Fiction.
The only horror show in Kris‘ gaming is going to be the acting performances of sports stars, as he carried on playing The Journey in FIFA 17. He rather likes it, but says the story is pretty light and that the story beats are too obviously telegraphed.
Finally for this week, we have Aran – Dom and Jim’s gaming will have to wait for another time. He’s also gone footballin’ mad, playing Football Manager 17 for our review. Pixel Gear on PSVR was another review, but he got to escape those duties for Sports Bar VR over the weekend – “a stupidly fun time,” he calls it – and finally, he’s just driving around getting collectibles in Mafia III.
But how about you? What have you played this past week?
