It was 20 degrees yesterday and sunny. I had my shorts on. Today there’s torrential rain and the wind is trying to remove every leaf from every tree and put it inside my house. This is less good. Still, the horrible weather means you can’t feel bad about staying inside all day playing computer games, so there’s always that. I’ve started playing Starlink: Battle For Atlas for review as well as SoulCalibur VI, and it seems like I’ve spent about a fortnight surrounded by cardboard thanks to the Labo Vehicle Kit. Fortunately, it’s a ton of foldable fun!
Aran has played a more Jurassic World Evolution, but got a bit bored so he sent it back to Boomerang. He also reviewed the decidedly average Metal Max Xeno. Jason played Friday the 13th, “which was empty and not good”. He also played The World Ends With You, which he still absolutely loves. It’s all about historical smooshing and petting animals really though “Most of my time has been spent with Kassandra in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, kicking people off things and making friends with wolves.”
Tuffcub has played Destiny 2, the Strange Brigade DLC with Ade, and Earth Wars, which is apparently a very odd Japanese side scrolling hack and slash game. Speaking of Ade, he is playing some new tables of Pinball FX 3 for review, though sadly as the tables were released the other day, all of his high scores have been well and truly smashed. “I played some Strange Brigade DLC with TC, which was a lot of fun. The more I play Strange Brigade, the more I like it – it’s a straightforward team shooter and its simplicity is all part of the charm.”
Miguel has spent this week playing Forza Horizon 4, saying it’s “the most addictive game I’ve touched all year”. He’s also played The World Ends With You on Switch and wished he was playing it on DS instead. He’s also tucked into some more Marble It Up! Gareth is still on that assassin game: “I’ve played some more Odyssey and that’s all. It continues to be delightfully kick-people-off-roofsy.” Quite.
Steve’s week has been fairly light on the games front. He’s played some more DQVIII and a couple of things for review, but he’s not had much time aside from that thanks to it being the start of term and preparing to teach seminars.
And finally, Tef’s been a busy bee, playing something he can’t talk about until next week, banging drums in Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! on Switch, rolling around in Katamari Damacy Reroll, and spending the rest of his time just driving around the wonderful Forza Horizon 4. All of that is going to be put to one side as he gets cracking on our Black Ops 4 review this weekend.
Now then, what have you played?
