Gosh! It’s Friday again already? In the never-ending whirlwind of life, it’s nice to discover you’re back on the welcoming shore of a fresh, untouched weekend, ready to spend as much of it as possible in your pyjamas. I’ve been having a hectic time of it the last week, but that hasn’t stopped me playing Biomutant for review, as well as some excellent Monster Hunter Rise with the two Nic(k)s. I’ve also dipped into Knights of San Francisco, Returnal and Overwatch too.
Steve has played the fan-service-full Star Wars Pinball VR on Quest “which is cool” – though, the Steam release is apparently “borked”. He continues, “I have also been working through the fantastic Resident Evil Village. I love that it feels like a first person version of 4 rather than retreading the style of 7. Deliberately playing it in small doses like a luxury food that you don’t want to stuff all in one go.
“To cleanse the palate after the bloody delights of Ethan Winters’ adventures I have returned to Infamous 2 via PSNow. The streaming holds up pretty well as long as I avoid times when the kids are hammering the bandwidth. Finally, I’ve dabbled with some retro stuff as I check out my pile of consoles that I’m getting rid of to get a shiny Quest 2.”
Nic B has played RE Village from start to finish. He says, “It’s an excellent game, with all the right hallmarks of RE4, which is the unequivocally best game in the franchise. I’m also approaching the lofty goal of Rank 20 in Pokémon Go’s PvP, and have been playing [embargoed] for [redacted]. Review to come!” Tuffcub has of course been playing Destiny 2, despite the new season bringing a bunch of problems with it.
Gareth has played Hood: Outlaws and Legends for review, Marvel’s Avengers for fun, and Prototype for nostalgia. “I loved Prototype and its sequel on PS3 so I picked the PS4 ‘remasters’ up on sale. They look exactly the same, but higher resolution and smoother. Still fun though. I want Prototype 3.”
Nick P’s week has been dominated by Mass Effect Legendary Edition which you can read the review in progress of here. “I also may have started playing Fortnite, for my sins. And I maybe possibly might be enjoying it.” Meanwhile Miguel has been doing more Nier Replicant, a bunch of Apex Legends, and played “a very silly” indie game called Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion.
Finally, Tef has mostly been playing Returnal, and trying to figure out what he needs to do to get to the secret ending. He also continued his irregular Halo 2 co-op play through, saying, “Some of those missions feel really looooooooooooong”
Now, what have you played?
