Here we are again, it’s been another week, and loads of stuff has happened or is about to happen in the real world. The UK Eurovision entrant had her mic nicked, and now everyone is gearing up for the royal wedding – which will presumably have slightly better security. There’s also been lots of game playing going on, and in my case I’ve been returning to Hyrule Warriors for its outing on the Switch, as well as half enjoying State of Decay 2. Besides that I’ve made a start on Smoke & Sacrifice for a future review, and played a spot of Redout as well.
Jake was first this week and it’s just been Destiny 2. “I’m genuinely hating the grind but I’m liking the side weapon quests and things. I’ve been so busy lately so I’m hoping to game some more and write more from next week.” Tuffcub is allowed to tell you he’s been playing Detroit: Become Human, and that’s about it. The review will be coming sometime soon!
Gareth has been playing with Conan Exiles. “It’s a survival game, but occasionally your dick flops out. I also finally managed to stop messing around with Nemesis system in Shadow of War long enough to progress to the final part of the game, the Shadow War. AKA, the “this is where it is most obvious our microtransactions have negatively affected our game” part. It’s fine right now whilst I have spare orcs and Mirian but once it runs out I can see it being a bit frustrating.”
Jason finished the Ratchet and Clank remake which just made him wish 2 and 3 were done too. He’s also been playing a lot of Dead Cells, which is coming to Switch in August and “it’s going to be soooooo good there”. Miguel has played Omensight for review and absolutely loved it. He also played Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time for review aaaandd uh… WANTED to love it. “I’ve also been playing Steamworld Heist on the Switch and it is easily my favorite 2018 Game From 2016. I also played a quick couple rounds of Fortnite cause I wanted to see Thanos, but alas, he had already returned to his homeworld by the time I logged in.”
Aran played a little bit of Aragami which is a “decent stealth game”. Jim meanwhile has been dabbling with some Fortnite and it’s very slowly starting to grow on him. He’s also decided to pack in Elite Dangerous which is a “fascinating game but requires hours to perform the most basic of tasks”. He also finished Outlast 2 which was good but seemingly way, way too long. Dave has played a fair chunk of Monument Valley 2 with a family relative, “well, she played it and I made sure she didn’t get horribly stuck and/or stressed out”. He’s also played through a reasonable chunk of Dark Souls Remastered for a future piece.
Steve has played a little bit of Cultist Simulator, had some ‘topical’ fun playing the forgotten Rage, and also wasted an evening on 999 Vidas and King Oddball, “neither are that great but they were distracting enough for free”. He’s still waiting on God of War from some inconsiderate slowpoke – that would be me – and has bought a cheap copy of Crash Trilogy “so that’ll take up some swearing until Kratos can get his Norse on”.
Ade has finished Horizan Zero Dawn “and, quite frankly, I don’t know what to do with this Aloy shaped hole in my life. An incredible story, with such expertly executed plot reveals, twists and turns that, like the very best of page turning novels, kept me sat in front of my TV for its final few hours as I just had to know what happened next. After boring me into oblivion with all those turgid Killzones, Guerrilla Games have blown me away and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. You can’t see me but I’m saluting Guerrilla games – which is making it extraordinarily difficult to type at the same time”.
Finally, Tef played Destiny 2, some State of Decay 2 with me, some racing games from Milestone, a spot of The Crew 2, and has jetted off somewhere to play even more.
Now, what have you played?
