Time to look back on the week we’ve just had! What did the weekdays look like for our writers? What was the biggest news from the week? and what are we looking forward to playing during the upcoming weekend? Our Eyes on the Week article will answer all three of these questions!
We’re curious about your opinion and played games, so be sure to share your stuff on our social media channels!
This past week, I’ve played multiple games. I started off with White Day: A Labyrinth Named School which I have recently reviewed; you can read it [HERE] if you would like. A remake of the original from 2001 which I think is a great addition to the horror genre for those interested. Next, I went back and completed the game Charon’s Staircase after I had finished the main story and my review which, again, can be read [HERE] if you wouldn’t mind taking the time. My next review title which I’m currently playing is called Super Woden GP which reminds me of Art of Rally to a degree so that will be my main focus. Me and Lewis also returned to Among Us as I purchased the next cube to complete. Nothing to do with the fact it had a cat ears cosmetic. Finally, how could I forget Dead by Daylight as we’ve been addicted lately. I managed to finally finish my first rift which I’m super happy about but now I have to wait 45 days until the next one – that’s next year! Looks like it’s all about previous tomes and prestiging now.
Most exciting news of this week: You can now vote in multiple different categories for The Game Awards so make sure you have your say! Also, make sure to check out the Black Friday Sale on Xbox!
Looking forward to playing: Super Woden GP, Dead by Daylight, Syberia – The World Before and whatever else appeals to me.
What a week it has been! So many great games released recently! Xbox might not have a big name for the Holiday but Somerville and Pentiment are straight-up LifeisXbox-recommended games. and what about the Vampire survivors… how addictive can a game actually be?!
Most exciting news of this week: While Playstation increased the price Xbox is actually lowering the price for the Xbox Series S!
Looking forward to playing: Gungrave G.O.R.E.
I finally sat down long enough to beat A Plague Tale Requiem and was happily surprised by the ending, there are some pretty amazing setpiece action moments that really blew my mind. Other than that I started playing the Belgian typing game Outshine and that also managed to leave a positive impression on me. The only game in my review backlog that keeps getting shoved aside is Bayonetta 3, somehow it’s just not doing it for me and it’s hard to figure out why. I loved the first game and this is more of the same…
Most exciting news of this week: The Game Awards nominees, what a predictable lineup. I really wish they looked away from the AAA industry long enough to see more indies or smaller titles.
Looking forward to playing: I should really just make myself play through Bayonetta 3. It’s not a bad game by any means, I just never find the “urge” to play.
This week I have piled on many hours in Assassins Creed Valhalla since I managed to pick up a copy brand new for £5! I haven’t touched an Assassin’s Creed game since Black Flag, and I have to say I am hooked! The combat, levelling up & environments are all fantastic & the graphics are pretty decent. However I do miss the boat combat from Black Flag, but raiding is a good alternative.
I also decided to go back & finish RYSE Son of Rome this week by Crytek. I guess I am in one of those moods when I am just loving games set in early AD.
Apart from this, I have mainly been working on bringing a community of game developers together to work on a collection of games that are coming this December.
Most exciting news of this week: Hearing more details about Project Keystone has been exciting. I love handhelds even if it is just for cloud gaming.
Looking forward to playing: More Assassins Creed Valhalla.
After a while, since I started it, I’ve finally managed to finish GTA IV‘s campaign again! Now I have to play through its DLCs and I’m interested to see how they are after all these years of curiosity.
I’ve finished The Spectrum Retreat and I’ve got to say that both its story and puzzles were nice to experience. I’ve also played Legend of Keepers for an upcoming review and it’s been a pretty interesting management game so far. Finally, I played a bit of Dead by Daylight.
Most exciting news of this week: I guess the nominations for The Game Awards being revealed were interesting, even though they don’t feel right.
Looking forward to playing: GTA IV’s DLCs, Dead by Daylight, and Legend of Keepers.
Hello, I’m Victoria. I’m from the UK and have been playing video games for as long as I can remember; back on DreamCast. I’ve pretty much fallen for Xbox since I was around eight years old and remember BioShock being my first game on the Xbox360. Although I find it thoroughly enjoyable to not only experience gameplay, I also find comfort in getting lost and engrossed in the online worlds that sometimes differ greatly from what we know. Another side of my Xbox passion would be achievement hunting and gamerscore. I thrive when I hear the little sound of one popping up on the screen and I’m always finding ways to work on my backlog when possible. Horror is my favourite genre so if you have any recommendations, don’t be afraid to send them my way!
