It’s been a relatively subdued week in video games, as the fallout from the flood of Me Too allegations over the last fortnight has continued to be felt. The positive from all of this is that it does actually feel like change is coming, with companies standing up for what’s right.
As for actual gaming… well, I’ve been slowly chipping away at The Last of Us Part II, just taking my time. Alongside that, I can’t really say much about what else I’ve been playing. Maybe I can let you in on that next week? Hmm?
Someone who can say what he’s been playing is Aran, who’s now permitted to reveal that he’s reviewing Ghost of Tsushima. If he wanted to, he’d also be allowed to show you the menu screen. If you want more than that, you’ll just have to wait!
Jake popped by to say that he’s gone all the way back to 1996 to play Pokémon Blue on his custom backlit Game Boy Color! This became a source of envy for Nic.
Nic was also envious of having time to actually play video games. “I snuck an hour here and there into TLOU2 and Magic Arena, but real life is somehow managing to get in the way again.”
It was more of the “incredible” Control for Steve, who’s biding his time waiting for his PC upgrade parts to turn up. He also downloaded Medievil for gaming with his kids.
Another non-gamer has been Nick, who’s been “playing” something called Getting Ready To Move House. He called it “an interesting, stressful and expensive experience.”
Drea had her hands full managing a café in Pokémon Café Mix (convincing Steve to download the game), while Tom was reviewing SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, and Jason got his hands on a preview build of the upcoming Soulslike Mortal Shell.
And finally for quite a quiet week, Dom has been carrying on with his adventures in The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor, while also dabbling with Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Oh, and he’s been playing some Wave Break and Crayta on Stadia.
Now then, what have you been playing this past week?
