It’s the end of yet another rather manic E3 week, filled with press conferences and announcements, tons of opinionated shouting into the aether of the internet, and the odd little tidbit of news that followed.
Miguel and Jim have both been over in LA and you can expect to see more of their thoughts and impressions filtering out over the next week or two. What I can tell you is that, in addition to Sniper Elite VR, Zombie Army 4, Spiritfarer and Forza Horizon 4’s Lego Speed Champions DLC, Miguel’s been hands on with Final Fantasy VII and John Wick Hex. They’ve both also seen Cyberpunk and a bunch of other things, so yeah, you’ll definitely want to check in on those!
Those of us back in the UK have been busily hammering away on keyboards, more frantically than when you get a tricky word in Typing of the Dead. When not on the E3 news beat, I’ve been killing time with Apex Legends’ season ending event and tapping buttons to the beat to Crypt of the NecroDancer, which I picked up in the sale while waiting for its Legend of Zelda-themed Cadence of Hyrule spin-off to release. Speaking of which, I’ve now moved on to start my adventure into Cadence of Hyrule!
Steve, meanwhile, has nabbed himself the platinum trophy in A Plague Tale: Innocence, which he reckons is the best new IP since Horizon Zero Dawn! He’s also continued playing that secret game of his and started on Darksiders III.
Tuffcub’s been finding the new content in Destiny 2 to be a bit buggy, but there’s no such complaints from Jake, who’s been loving the royal theme of the Season of Opulence and the raid-inspired Menageries mode. Then there’s the raid itself:
The Crown of Sorrows is a very good looking bit of content with a good pairing mechanic which isn’t too easy to get to grips with. Plus the actual weapons and armour throughout the content look insanely beautiful, and aren’t just rehashed designs of other weapons like Bungie normally do!
Jason’s been face first into some VR games including the “fantastic dungeon crawler” VR Dungeon Knight and Superhot VR.
Meanwhile Nick has been playing more of Days Gone, and is starting to actually enjoy it a little bit. Alongside that, there’s been the new Ground War mode for Black Ops 4 Blackout, Mortal Kombat 11, Crackdown 3 and Burnout Paradise!
Finally, Dom has played a bit of Steamworld Quest, a touch of Tales from the Borderlands, and The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr… you know, when he’s not been watching E3 streams!
Now then, how have you kept yourselves occupied through the E3 week?
