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!
A somewhat slow week for me but an enjoyable one all the same. I started off my week by continuing my playthrough of Save Room – an inventory management game which takes its theme from Resident Evil. You have to organise all your weapons, ammunition, health items, and grenades to fit in specific grids over the course of forty levels; something I found relaxing and satisfying doing. The full game took me just over two hours. I also continued my playthrough of Syberia – The World Before which I will be writing my review for over the weekend/next week once I have finished the story; make sure you keep an eye out for that. I finally started Scorn as I did say to myself I would play it before the end of the year. The environment and audio are outstanding but I do struggle with there being no evident story to follow. The puzzles have been complicated but I welcomed the challenges as they got my brain working. With the release of the new chapter DLC in Dead by Daylight, Forged in Fog, me and Lewis have been learning the new map and working out the best way to survive against The Knight. I currently find his minions rather annoying to go against but without them, you’re basically playing against a basic attack killer. Also not a fan of this perk which exposes you if a survivor stuns you with a pallet but I’m hoping, with time, this becomes easier to counter.
Most exciting news of this week: The new DLC for Dead by Daylight was released on Tuesday. Also, hearing the rumour that a new AAA survival horror game is in development, inspired by Dead Space and Resident Evil, has caught my attention so I’ll be keeping up to date with this when possible.
Looking forward to playing: Syberia – The World Before, Dead by Daylight, Scorn, Glass Masquerade, Bravery and Greed, and My Fantastic Ranch are all games I’ll be playing over the weekend and the following week.
Having some personal issues so back next week.
Most exciting news of this week: Nothing to report this week.
Looking forward to playing: Nothing to report this week.
I spent a lot of time with my Nintendo Switch this past week. We started the weekend by singing together with our daughter’s sleepover friend in Let’s Sing 2023 – you can read the review [HERE]. Then I moved on to playing Pokémon Violet. And let’s address the elephant in the room: yes, the performance is terrible. Yes, it’s full of weird visual bugs. But by golly, is it a lot of fun. I really didn’t vibe with Sword & Shield for some reason, then Arceus came along like a breath of fresh air but grew dull before I finished my pokédex and now this finally seems to do the open world justice. But you have to take the bad with the good. You’ll have to wait a bit longer for our review as this isn’t a short title you can knock out in a couple of days.
Most exciting news of this week: LifeisXbox is doing a Game of the Year article and we (and you) all get to vote!
Looking forward to playing: More Pokémon and also a bit of Goat Simulator 3 on Xbox!
This week I have started playing Weird West for the upcoming review. So far, all I can say is, it’s a great action adventure game sharing some similar qualities to Devil May Cry.
The rest of the week I have mainly been playing some more Assassins Creed Valhalla & finally started getting around to the new Saints Row game. I’m not very far into it, but if you want a good old laugh at some of the usual ridiculousness that is Saints Row, you’ll enjoy it.
Most exciting news of this week: New AAA Alien game in the works? Reports seem to suggest so. That’s super exciting since I love the franchise.
Looking forward to playing: More Weird West!
Not a lot of gaming from me this week, but I did play a bit of Legend of Keepers for my latest review which you can check out [HERE]. Additionally, I played a bit of GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, which has been pretty good and interesting so far. I already used 2 new guns from the DLC and saw some different game mechanics. I did also play some more Dead by Daylight, not with the new characters though.
Most exciting news of this week: Weird West got official mod support this week, one of the already available mods is a first-person camera one which left me curious.
Looking forward to playing: More GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, Dead by Daylight, and if I get another review game to play, I’ll also do that.
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!
