It’s just 6 degrees outside up here in the north, so I’m calling it. We’ve skipped past autumn and this is now winter. That just means we must stay indoors and bask in the heat of our PS5 exhaust fans. I’ve personally been warming myself up by playing Scarlet Nexus, which is probably the most enjoyable anime-styled game I’ve played in a long while. I’ve also made a start with Age of Empires 4, while continuing to play the very end of Final Fantasy 7 Remake which just seems interminably long. I have enjoyed it, but I can’t quite seem to bring myself to finish the thing.
Nic B surprises no one by playing Pokémon Go. He has however also played a cute monochrome photography game called Toem, which was a fun little romp. Our other single game gamer, Tuffcub, has also broken out of his gaming habits, getting to start playing and reviewing the totally spooky The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes.
Aran has been busy being an intergalactic busybody in Mass Effect Legendary Edition. He’s pottering around in ME2 still, scanning planets, doing side quests, and gearing up for the game’s final mission.
Gareth played Far Cry 6 and has tried to play Diablo 2 Resurrected, but had to continue with an offline character instead as he hadn’t been able to get into servers since Sunday night. That was until a recent patch, which means that even when he manages to get into a server, the play button wouldn’t work so he still couldn’t play. Sounds pretty rubbish, but thankfully it’s been patched again and that issue is now fixed. Quite the rollercoaster of emotions for Diablo fans.
Miguel’s played a bit of Fortnite, an old-school shmup Gleylancer that just got re-released, and a bit of Minecraft with some pals that bought a server.
Reuben has meanwhile been on a war path this week with Metroid Dread before some idiot spoiled it for him, but he’s now finished and said it’s “INCREDIBLE”. Also, he’s been catching up on games that he missed with some Dead by Daylight and Donut County filling in the rest of his non-streaming time.
It was a week of prep for Steve, who’s been deciding what horror games he wants to play for Halloween this year, while also working his way through Psychonauts 2.
And finally we come to Tef. He’s been diving into Back 4 Blood with Nick P to help with his review, but it’s giving them a right kicking with its difficulty. Aside from that, he’s played more Metroid Dread since our review, and just started on another review that he (unfortunately) can’t tell you about just yet.
But now it’s time to shift gears and ask you what you have played?
