It was a lot quieter compared to last week for the previews, with Stefan first having a look at Paper Mario: The Origami King which continues to build upon its predecessors, as you can see in his video below.
After that, he went eyes on with Dontnod’s latest narrative adventure game, Twin Mirror. With overall improvements being made, he says it’s one for “fans of Life Is Strange to keep an eye on”.
Last up, What We Played featured Ghost of Tsushima, Paper Mario & Destiny 2.
Here’s what our community has been up to this week:
- It was 4 platinum’s this week for Crazy Del, who added FIFA, DiRT Rally 2.0, Daymare 1998, and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered to his collection!
- TLOU2 is still occupying loads of you, with TSBonyman, ron_mcphatty, and Andrewww enjoying it.
- And last up, MrYd continued his adventures with Bob in Red Dead 2, finished off NFS:Heat, and is looking forward to a weekend away!
