Games in Review

Sony’s hot streak continued, with Jim saying Naughty Dog “have truly surpassed themselves yet again” for The Last of Us Part II. That was far from the only thing in review this week, though.

With such a busy week in the gaming world, it wasn’t surprising that there wasn’t much time for anything else.

Still, Steve managed to squeeze in a look at The Girl of Glass: A Summer Bird’s Tale, a game that merges ‘point and click adventure and turn-based JRPG combat’. The other preview came from Thomas, who went hands on with Curse of the Dead Gods, an enjoyable roguelite that’s currently in Early Access.

Last up, What We Played featured Disintegration, Bioshock Collection & The Last of Us Part II.
