I’m currently sat in a dark basement room playing Laser League, and it’s pretty great. There’s a lot of new things that the Roll7 guys have added to the fast-paced laser multiplayer fun, and it’s as compelling as ever. This is definitely one to pay attention to when it releases next month.
Aside from that, my gaming time has been relatively light. I also had the chance to play The Crew 2, and it’s ludicrously freeform spin on the arcade racer, put a little more time into Mario + Rabbids on Nintendo Switch, and spent last weekend playing through the turn-based mech warfare of BattleTech for our review
Also on review duty was Gamoc, who played Swords of Ditto and rather enjoyed it outside of a few odd decisions. Rise of the Tomb Raider has also been on his playlist, which is surprisingly timely, and he’s trying not to be overwhelmed by the vastness of Elite Dangerous.
Tuff’s had a tricky week of only being able to see out of one eye, but had his sight restored enough to play the Detroit: Become Human demo, which he absolutely loved. Dave also played and enjoyed it, and said it still looks really good on base PS4, poo-pooing those reports of a downgrade a few weeks back. Alongside that, it was the implausibly named Crisis on the Planet of the Apes in VR, the new Hearthstone expansion, and a game called A Robot Named Fight!
God of War was in Jake’s console, who’s been trying to wrap up some of the side missions (which he’s really enjoying), and also trying to finish off more of the challenges in Fortnite before the series ends next week. Strangely for Jim, he’s not returned to God of War since reviewing, despite always replaying the previous games right away. Instead he was feeling a bit fatigued, so played WipEout VR and For Honor to reset.
It was Pinball FX3’s The Last Jedi and Dusty Raging Fist for Ade’s reviews, as well as the start of A Way Out, which he’s been quite impressed by. Meanwhile, Steve’s found the start of Azure Saga: Pathfinder a bit slow, but it finally got its hooks into him, while he played Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers and Finn and Jake Investigations with the kids which has been “refreshingly algebraic.”
Aran popped up to tell us that he’s blasted through Star Wars Battlefront II’s campaign, finding it fun but a little short, while new boy Jason listed Divinity: Original Sin 2, Adventure Pals, Trackmania Turbo, Naruto: Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy, before questioning why anime games always have crazy names.
It’s been a busy for week for Miguel, who’s just finished up a school semester and is heading home to NYC for the summer. That said, he got to play a little bit of Occupy White Wall, which is in alpha right now.
Finally, Dom has also been playing God of War, but said he found “a boring bit in God of War last night. I am really enjoying it overall but that bit took the shine off it.” There’s also been a spot of AO International Tennis and Mario + Rabbids.
How have you been enjoying God of War and any other games your playing this week? Let us know below!
