One other fantastic week has been written to the historical past books. Earlier than we write the following chapter, we have to take the weekend off, cost our batteries, and get some gaming completed. Right here’s what we’re doing this weekend.
I’m on a critical binge with the PS Vita proper now and it’s taking me again to easier occasions. Buring myself away in a nook with the likes of Murderer’s Creed Liberation, Killzone: Mercenary, and Jetpack Joyride is doing me wonders, however I’m just a little unhappy that I’m holding what is probably going the final devoted handheld PlayStation. Cell streaming is cool, however there’s simply nothing like a system that has been constructed from the bottom up for enjoying video games. I’ll be delving into extra PS Vita classics this weekend, more than likely between jobs at my desk.
I’ve dipped again into Dauntless earlier this week, and I have to admit, I’m having a tough time placing down the controller. I’ve simply racked up 10 hours already, and I’m certain the time counter will solely get larger by the point the week involves an finish. Sooner or later, I’m additionally tempted to present Hotshot Racing a strive. It’s been on my radar since final yr after Chris’s overview of the sport. Let the arcade drifting insanity start!
After coming off worse in a collision with a door body, I might be nursing my wounds with a builder’s tea and some painkillers. However once I’m not taking suggestions from Two Level Hospital, I might be beginning the third Dangaronpa. The playstyle particularly will swimsuit my encumbered state this weekend – not that I would like a lot of an excuse for this collection. However I might be dissatisfied to lastly end it.
My plan of finishing video games on the backlog earlier than beginning something new (except for overview) nonetheless stays, however this weekend is all about Returnal. Fortunately I’m not breaking my rule as it’s for overview, however as we didn’t obtain a code so that you’ll have to attend a couple of extra days for our first impressions to land whereas I soar in and provides it a go. Will it fall foul of my lack of endurance for roguelites (or roguelikes – at this level does anybody know the distinction??) or will it scratch an itch in the best way ScourgeBringer most lately did? Keep tuned to seek out out!
I enter this weekend with an itch to play, and that itch will solely be scratched by Steel Slug on the Neo Geo Mini. As unhappy because it sounds I’m having fun with my little spell again to fundamentals and I’ve missed the giddy and nostalgic feeling taking part in retro video games brings. If it’s not Steel Slug then I shall proceed my sugary siege on Sweet Crush, I don’t understand how I deal with such onerous choices.
I’ve spent the previous few days dying loads in The Lengthy Darkish on PS Plus so I’ll in all probability proceed to play that. Failure builds character, Grandma used to say, so I ought to be an honest particular person any day now.
I’ve been working by Nioh Remastered for a couple of weeks now, and I’m lastly nearing the tip! Sadly, it seems to be like I’ve fairly a methods to go if I wish to earn the platinum trophy for this one. Relying on how a few of these late-game missions go, I can completely see myself taking a break with some NieR Replicant this weekend earlier than I lose my sanity.
And that’s what we’re doing this weekend. If you wish to share what you’re doing, hit us up on the ol’ Twitter.
