It’s with great sadness that we’re coming to the last four day week in what feels like forever. The Spring Bank Holiday is behind us, and we have to wait until the very end of August, some three long months, before we get the next one. However will we survive?
I’m sure playing games will remain the answer and I’ve been diving in and out of a whole host of games lately, including the Company of Heroes 3 console release, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader’s beta, Total War: Pharaoh, SteamWorld Build and getting some cheeky looks at games we’ll all be hearing plenty more about in the next few weeks.
Nic B played “An absolute tonne of Zelda” and has now beaten the game, but is also “wondering what to do with all of this free time as I wait for FF16 to come out later this month…”
Meanwhile, Aran finished off the main campaign for Gears 5 and enjoyed his time with it enough to roll straight into the DLC Hivebusters campaign. He’s also started Fall of Porcupine for review, for which Gamoc quipped he should use a quill when it comes time to write it up.
Speaking of Gamoc, he traded in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor which allowed him to grab Dead Island 2 for £2. “It’s interesting how good it is, and that it’s better than Dying Light 2,” he said. Then again, he rates it behind the original Dead Island and Dying Light. He also played a little bit of Beat Saber in PSVR 2.
Steve had a relatively quiet week, spending most of his time with the System Shock remake, “which is the best way to play this classic game but may prove frustrating for those used to more forgiving modern design choices.” He also dipped into a few shrines in Tears of the Kingdom and played through the wonderful Planet of Lana – the music is now the soundtrack for marking and writing.
And finally we come to Mr. Nick P, who’s able to reveal that the last fortnight of gaming has been all about Street Fighter 6 for our review. “It’s the first game I’ve given a 10 and is fully deserved! I might not play anything else now!”
Now then, what have you been playing?
