We’ve hit peak gaming release time now, and Assassin’s Creed is already here to steal all your time, though if you haven’t finished Origins, God of War, Spider-Man or Horizon: Zero Dawn then you’re not allowed to buy it. Or so I’m told.
I have been playing Disgaea 1 Complete on the Switch which has been awesome to return to, as well as more Forza Horizon 4. Besides that I got to play an early build of Beacon which is looking super promising and I’ve started on Space Hulk: Tactics for a review next week.
Aran has played more Metal Max Xeno and some Jurassic World Evolution, both of which seem to be going well. “In MMX I finally got through a tunnel that had all sorts of ridiculously powered enemies that could wipe my team out in seconds. While in JWE I’m onto the third island and only a few guests have been killed. Success I’d say”. It’s also his birthday today, so happy birthday Aran!
Steve has had a relatively quiet week in the build up to his birthday, which is also today! Happy birthday Steve! He’s played a chunk of Insomnia: The Ark for review but is waiting on a patch to fix some language problems (the maps are in Russian). He’s also managed a fair bit of Dragon Quest VIII which is apparently properly opening up now; “I imagine it was hugely impressive back in the day”. Aside from those he finished up Little Dragon Cafe and looked at the start of Giana Sisters on PS4.
Gareth has played Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for review and nothing else. He did play some Spelltower on his phone, but that’s all. Proof that Assassin’s Creed is going to destroy your time/life. Miguel has been playing more Forza Horizon 4, and also giving that new Nintendo phone game Dragalia Lost a whirl. Ade meanwhile polished off Fossil Hunters and Stay for review. He’s also agonisingly close to getting a platinum in Onrush – if only he could pull off a vomit comet!
Jason has been as busy as ever, playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, saying that “even 10 minutes in you can tell is an incredible game”. He’s also reviewed Mega Man 11 and Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story “which is a very fun little distraction from the over bearing AAA”. He’s now starting on Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption, and giving Dead By Daylight a go too. Somehow he’s also found time to play the new Eternal campaign and is blitzing through that and messing about with the new cards.
Last, but not least, Tef spent most of last weekend playing Super Mario Party and did enjoy it despite its flaws. His gaming time aside from that has been a touch limited, but while flicking through his PS4’s menus, he found The Swindle and gave his favourite heist ’em up a quick play.
That’s it from us, what have you played?
