What We Played #438 – Vanquish, Two Point Hospital & Lair of the Clockwork God

Another week is in the bag, and it’s been remaster heaven for me as I got to play Devil May Cry 3 SE and the Bayonetta & Vanquish 10 Year Anniversary Bundle. Besides that, I still like Stadia, but is it because I have Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to play on it? Quite possibly. I’ve also played Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, because I’ve finally burnt myself out on Iceborne. At least until they add some more monsters.

Finally we’ve had a second play-through of The Lego Movie Videogame, as my youngest has now discovered the joy of Lego games. I’m preparing myself for a lot more Lego in the coming months.

Steve has played and platinumed Earthlock and spent time with Pandaball for review. “It’s football and pandas mixed together so what could go wrong?” Tune in next week to find out!

For some reason Miguel just got extremely into Fortnite in the last 3 or so days, despite being over the age of fourteen. “I really liked what I saw of the whole rebooted Chapter 2 thing last year, but never actually played the game much. I got back into as season 1 was wrapping up, breezed through to rank 20 in one night, and then this morning I bought the Battle Pass for season 2 and played til rank 10 on there!” Beyond that he’s been playing more Rune Factory 4, some Under Night In-Birth EXE: Late cl-r, as well as the Double Dragon & Kunio-kun Retro Brawler Bundle. Finally he’s been going heavy on some Japanese mobile games “because I have no self control”.

Aran has been playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. “A Star Wars game that plays a bit like a Souls title? It works well. The first time you cross a Purge Trooper is damned tough.” He’s also playing Bloodroots for review, so more on that next week.

It turns out that Jason has been playing a lot of VR this week, mostly VR Dungeon Knight and Robo Recall, “both of which are almost therapeutic in their brilliant design and satisfying combat.”

Lastly for this week, Tef’s been playing Two Point Hospital on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 for our console review, and dove into Lair of the Clockwork God from Dan Marshall (The Swindle) and his occasional creative partner Ben Ward. This time around they’re blending their traditional LucasArts style adventuring with modern indie platforming. The review embargo lifts at 6PM, so Tef can’t tell you that it’s really good and funny until then.

Now then, what have you been playing this week?

  1. Back into NMS (as if i ever left) for the living ship update and i’ve returned to creating stuff in Dreams.

  2. Getting closer to Just Cause 4 Plattinum. Picked up a copy of Darksiders and did one mission and then picked up Hunt Showdown and cannot stop playing this awesome multiplayer game!!! Lol
    Looking for players with this game Hunt Showdown as it is hard for me to get all 5 characters to level them up to 50.

  3. More of a quick playthrough of the remastered Uncharteds. Can’t be arsed getting all those collectibles. But now I’m on to number 2, and I forgot how much of an improvement over the first it was.

    Plus lots of Dreams. My main problem is I get distracted by all the things others have made. And it does far too many things, so it’ll be about 5 years before I actually make something complete. (Just discovered you can make rain out of a single line!)

    And then The Division 2. For whatever reason, it’s a lot better than the first. On to the strongholds now, which are lots of fun. And by Ubisoft standards, the map is nice and free of icons. Which means there’s only about 500 of them.

  4. Besides binge watching season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I mostly played Division 2. It’s more of the same, of course, but it’s good.
