Despite the weather turning from sun to rain this morning, I’m sure many of you have got that Friday feeling. You know the one, where you don’t want to do any work and play games instead? Well, luckily for me, I’m currently getting to do both at once!
I can’t tell you about what I’m playing right this second, but I will reveal all in the next week or so. What I can say is that I am currently undefeated in the newly released Apex Legends Mobile. Can I keep my streak going this weekend?
Nic B swanned off to Krakow at the start of the week to attend Digital Dragons, an indie showcase where he got to play a whole bunch of stuff, including Hamster Playground, The Red Hood, Batora, Sucker for Love, Fix Fox, Pokémon Go (which wasn’t part of the event), and a game called Outcore “which I’m actually pretty psyched.”
Meanwhile, Aran finished off his playthrough of Elden Ring – “What a tough game but enjoyed it. Now I’m playing Lost Judgment and solving all the side cases and school stories.”
Miguel took a break from Elden Ring so that he could play through Deathloop and then bounce through WarioWare on Switch. The itch to play more Elden Ring is coming back though… so he’s tried to keep that urge suppressed with games like Citizen Sleeper, Seraph’s Last Stand, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising and Apex Legends!
Gamoc has been replaying the first Dying Light – “I forgot how frustrating the first few hours are until you get decent weaponry, but it’s SO good. It puts its sequel to shame.” He added to that with Conan Exiles, but (as always) now finds himself compelled to keep playing despite the excessive time demands. That and he spent a bit too long figuring out how to enable the game’s nudity, “because when your pants break mid combat your dick just flops around suddenly and it is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.”
Reu appeared to tell us that he’s restarted Dragon Quest VII on 3DS, “because I have absolutely no respect for what little time I have right now,” and Steve started on Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, which is a nice respite from his end of year marking, and working through Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong for our review. He’s also been fiddling with his new Retroid Pocket 2+.
Lastly for this week, Nick P has got started playing Evil Dead: The Game, but has been finding it a bit frustrating playing with randoms – “No one wants to actually play the objective and we all end up dying!” Alongside that, it’s been Horizon Forbidden West, Dead by Daylight, FIFA 22, and Fortnite.
