This week is nearly done, and with it comes another weekend to fill with as much stuff as possible. It’s been another packed week here at TSA towers though which started with the recording of the Pubcast and hasn’t let up since. I’ve been playing My Hero One’s Justice and having a lot of fun with it, while dipping back into Starlink and Into The Breach. I’m also enjoying Call of Duty far more than I expected to, even though I don’t think I’m much cop at the actual shooting stuff. I am however pretty good at the sneaking around thing, so making it into the top ten on Blackout has started to be a regular occurrence.
Ade has unsurprisingly been playing an awful lot of Red Dead Redemption 2, and handed it an incredible 10/10. “It’s very very good but is also massive and took over my life for a little bit there. I was genuinely surprised today to realise that I don’t actually know how to ride a horse.” Tackling an equally massive game, Aran managed a spot more AC Odyssey; “I’m 17 hours and I’m still exploring the North West area of the map. It’s huge and packed with stuff to do.”
Steve has mainly been playing through Lego: DC Super-Villains for review. “Came at a perfect time with half-term, so Xander and I have been being bad. Other than that, more lecture writing and teaching has only left time to have a nostalgic look at the PS One Spyro games on Vita in preparation for the remasters. Still fighting the urge to grab RDR2 despite my lack of time, so we’ll see how that goes. My willpower is generally an easy boss to conquer.”
Miguel’s week has been a little stacked with college work, but he squeezed a quick Forza Horizon 4 session in and also started messing with Gal Metal on Switch for review, before streaming some Swedish robot action with Tef in Generation Zero. Jim played a ton of For Honor’s new Marching Fire expansion. “Continues to be my favourite fighting (probably of all time, now that I think about it)”. He also playing some GRIP and fired up Until Dawn.
Gareth upgraded his gaming set-up this week and got a Switch and a PS4 Pro despite some kind of super-flu taking over his body. This meant he has used an eclectic mix of games with which to comfort himself: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Cities: Skylines, Batman Arkham Knight, Dead Rising 4, Onrush, Stardew Valley, Dead Cells, Mario Kart 8 and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. “Not much to say about these, except that Zelda is a uniquely captivating game that I keep having to take breaks from because I keep dying so much.” Oh, and he squeezed in some Spider-Man DLC for an impressions piece coming next week and Shadows Awakening for review.
Jason polished off Starlink and played a lot more of Into The Breach. “I dipped into SkyScrappers on Switch which is a fun little multiplayer title. Mostly I’ve been playing through Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey though, it’s such a brilliant open world game that it suits staying up with the new baby perfectly.” Meanwhile Tuffcub is sunning himself but has been playing AC Liberation, FF X2, and Another World – all on Vita.
Even though he didn’t review it, Tef’s also had Red Dead Redemption 2 consume part of his life. There were the fun and frolicks of capture going a bit wonky for our video review chat, before he then streamed a good chunk of the start of the game last night. Outside of that, he played some Black Ops 4 while waiting for RDR2 to install, Cities: Skylines for the Industries expansion, Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS, streamed Generation Zero with Miguel, and a spot, a tiny little spot of Destiny 2.
Aaand just before the weekend, and RDR2 takes over your life, what have you been playing?
