I have only played one game for the past week, and that’s Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I enjoyed it very much. I also enjoyed the fact that I live in a 400 year old building which stays relatively cool alllllll day. I did go outside a couple of times, but there was some kind of death ball in the sky which I didn’t like very much, so I went back into my ancient hobbit hole and didn’t come back out.
Everyone else has been deciding whether or not to avoid the sun, with Steve also choosing to hide away. He got the platinum for Detroit: Become Human and 99 Vidas, before beginning the “fun but slightly janky” Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. He put some time into Cricket 19 for an upcoming review, which you might see around the start of the Ashes.
Staying true to his roots, Tuffcub has been playing Destiny 2, but behold! He also played WipEout on PSVR! Aran, on the other hand, has played nothing (this isn’t what we have not played Aran) as he’s been away from home; “even though I have my Switch I haven’t used it once because of work business.”
Nick P is still playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, “getting reps as I plough through the Infinity Trials.” He’s also been looking after my dinos (I assume he means he’s been playing Jurassic Park Evolution, not suddenly turned into TSA’s own John Hammond), hating Killsquad and starting Wolfenstein Youngblood, which incidentally made him feel sick. “Bethesda shooters have a habit of doing this to me,” he lamented.
Ade is also still playing, and very much enjoying, Spider-Man, while Thomas has been diving back into The Witcher 3 ahead of the Netflix TV show’s release this year and finally forced himself to start playing Red Dead Redemption 2. You’re going to have to force yourself to complete it too, mate, rather than get annoyed about accidentally pissing everyone else off like I did.
JC – that’s Jason Coles, not Jesus Christ – has played some more Destiny 2, and lots of the Iron Banner specifically, a bit of Minecraft, and loads of Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada, “because it’s excellent.” Miguel meanwhile has given back in to his vice and started playing the English version of Fate/Grand Order – “the mobile game that may or may not have consumed 2 years of my life during college.” He’s also been playing a bit more Tekken 7 and practicing combos.
Giving himself a bit of a breather before the third instalment, Jim has wrapped up Shenmue II, while dipping into Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled to ensure that he finishes the Grand Prix season in the top 5% of players and managed to secure himself a nice new kart.
Last and always least, Tef has begun his journey into Monster Hunter: World, because he wants to have a foggy idea of how to play it properly. So, you might think that he’d just hop in, pick a stock character model and run a few quests, right? Wrong. Instead he spent a good half hour in yesterday’s sweltering heat painstakingly going through all the options to make his character look minutely different to one of the presets. Good.
Aside from that, it’s been just a tiny bit of Super Mario Maker 2, intense regret at missing last week’s final Splatoon 2 Splatfest, and waiting for Fire Emblem: Three Houses to unlock.
Now then, what have you played? Or are you in fact a puddle of former-human goop on the floor now? One bubble for yes, two for no.
