As we head into the long weekend, I’ve got just enough willpower to pass along what the TSA writing team have been playing this past week. At least, those who could rouse themselves long enough to tell me through Slack!
Dave is one of those who’s been playing Far Cry 5 an awful lot, managing to complete it in relatively short order, while breaking out his 3DS to play Detective Pikachu on the flights to and from Warsaw. He’s been out in Poland to see a brace of indie video games that you’ll be hearing about soon. He also completed his annual run of Streets of Rage 2.
Aran’s been keeping himself busy with our upcoming review of Extinction and has reached the final palace of Persona 5, while Steve and the family have been overcoming a nasty bug and kept their gaming to a relative minimum. They still managed to co-op their way to the platinum trophy in Knack, which his son really liked, he finished Beast Quest for review and killed time on Dead Nation for PS Vita.
It’s still Assassin’s Creed Origins for Ade, who ponders whether or not Pharaoh Akhenaten could possibly have imagined his life would be the source for a video game some three thousand years later… and that he’d be an undead Pharaoh to beat in it. Such deep philosophical thoughts can take a back seat for Adventure Pals though, which lets your pet giraffe fly using “tongue propulsion”.
Jim (kind of) crossed NieR: Automata off his backlog list, having reached his first ending in the game. He’s compelled to go back and discover more of the full story though. He’s also been completely sucked into Rainbow Six Siege and fired up his PS3 to play some Condemned 2.
Miguel started sneaking and never stopped in Never Stop Sneaking on Switch, but also delved back into a bit more of Yakuza 6 and has been playing the new Atelier game for review.
Lastly, Dom and I banded together to play Sea of Thieves in the run up to our review, I teamed up with Gamoc for our Far Cry 5 review over the weekend, and I also joined forces with randoms to get our Vermintide 2 review done and dusted.
Now then, what have you played?
