What a week it’s been! At the top of everyone’s gaming week has probably been the PlayStation 5 reveal, though the appearance of The Last of Us Part II reviews has probably made for the perfect comedown this morning. Personally, I think the PS5 looks amazing, but it’s ridiculously big, and won’t fit in the already-large TV cabinet we have. That won’t stop me getting one, though!
I’ve been playing a load of Disintegration this week, and enjoying its unique charms quite a lot, while also taking some time with comfort gaming of the highest order by sinking back into Borderlands 2. Other than that, it’s actually been a relatively quiet week.
Nic B has pretty much exclusively been playing The Outer Worlds on Switch, saying “Great game; terrible port” – catch our review of that here. Tuffcub meanwhile has continued to bore us silly with Destiny 2, but wait! He says “it’s fun again! Yay! The new season is much better than the last one.” He also played Medieval, but called it a “terribly dated game.”
Aran played Jet Lancer for review; “a fun shoot em up, and I’m making my way through the BioShock Collection on Switch for review too. I’ve enjoyed experiencing the series again having not played the games since they originally released.”
Jason has been playing a lot of Valorant, “which is a really good PvP shooter that feels a little barebones. I’ve also been playing more Terraria, and foolishly downloaded Destiny 2 again.” Good timing, since it’s apparently good again.
Jim found himself getting to that time when he needs a kart racing fix. “Having rapidly fell of Mario Kart Tour I decided to give the KartRider: Drift beta a spin on Xbox One having thoroughly enjoyed my time with KartRider: Rush+. Drift excels at being a fun and fast racer I can pick up and play in small bursts between tasks or to get me fired up before moving onto a bigger, chunkier game. I really looking forward to full release.” I guess he also played The Last of Us Part II, and kind of liked it.
Nick P has still only been playing Desperados 3, telling us “It’s a big game,” and giving it plenty of praise in his review.
Reuben has been working his way through sampling the delights on the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality on Itch.io, “finally experiencing fantastic titles like Minit and Celeste for the first time. I’ve been enjoying those indies so much in fact, that I’ve barely played Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition (which is awesome by the way and contains so many QoL changes I didn’t know I wanted).”
Finally, Tef has also been playing some of The Last of Us Part II, putting together the video to go with Jim’s words, murdering a few video game dogs in the process. He feels a bit bad about this.
What about you? Did you play games, or just watch videos of games you can maybe play next year?
