To get it out of the way, we’ve all been playing Apex Legends this week, so if you were hoping that we’d stop talking about it for five minutes, you’ve clicked on the wrong article. I myself have snuck a few rounds in every night, managing to grab a win yesterday after my squad came second or third on a few occasions. It’s a very, very good game.
But that’s not all everyone else has been playing. Aran supplemented his time in it with the continually entertaining Yakuza Kiwami 2, while Nick’s been playing an ungodly amount of Civilization VI. Nick’s good at Apex though, while Jason is bad, so he quickly went back to finishihng off Kingdom Hearts III, which he called “an incredible game”.
Steve’s also on the Kingdom Hearts III train, which he thinks is fun and looks great, but does little to advance the series – “it’s more Spyro than Resi 2” – he’s happy, nonetheless. Then he went and broke his brain learning machine coding in True: learn(), which is apparently a game.
It was Kingdom Hearts III for Jim as well, who’s been handling our review, and you can read his early impressions here. Aside from that it was a single round of Apex Legends, the long process of re-downloading Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Beat Saber on Expert+ difficulty.
Ade has continued his journey through The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and has played Dragons Dawn of New Riders for review. “One was excellent and the other a bit meh,” he said. He’s also loving the latest free levels for Overcooked 2.
Steadfastly refusing (until he eventually gave in) to try Apex Legends, Gamoc instead played Shadows Awakening for review and Red Dead Redemption 2. Poor design choices and finicky mechanics make him hope Rockstar really improve and modernise their game design philosophy.
Nic B is back on the Persona 5 train, after a month of not playing it, while Miguel played Wargroove, Yakuza Kiwami, Oniken and the first few minutes of Final Fantasy XIV on a new trial account. He also “tried a bit of Apex Legends and I was feelin’ it, hoping to play more soon.” Good lad.
And so we come to The Division 2. Some of us have dipped into the beta that started yesterday. Here are their thoughts:
Tom: “The Division 2 beta is dull”
Dom: “I played The Division 2 last night – enjoyed it!”
Tuffcub: “I have played Destiny 2.”
What have you played?
