Eyes on the Week (8th-12th April)

Eyes on the Week (8th-12th April)

It’s 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!


Although it’s been a usual week, it’s felt quite unusual in terms of gaming as I’ve changed my games (mostly) once again. I’ve had the urge to get into a First-Person Shooter for quite some time now and decided to take the rather large leap back into Overwatch 2. I placed in Silver V for my placement matches (W4, L6 – Support) which I was extremely upset about so I decided to play unranked instead with Lewis where the games went MUCH better. I got more comfortable with Kiriko and Illari while also continuing to play Moira – I’ve needed to expand on my support picks for some time. I might try competitive in Season 10 but only if I feel up to it as it was pretty damn stressful and infuriating, to say the least.

SMITE has also won my attention back with a few games for the last couple of nights, enough to keep me entertained but not overdo it in case I lose my enjoyment of the game again. I’ve only played Arena and mainly support Gods (Khepri, Aphrodite, Yemoja etc.) but I’ve had some entertaining games. I wish I could play ADC Gods but I don’t think it will happen; I tried but I think I’ll stick to what I know and where I feel useful.

House Flipper has taken every creative ounce of strength from my mind which is making it harder to play. I have been doing houses in bits to split up the gameplay. I arrange what rooms I will include, decorate them, and then come off to think of a theme to work towards. As I’ve taken a break from Dreamlight Valley for a similar reason, I’m afraid the same fate will meet House Flipper but we’ll see. I still have another 30 houses to sell out of 50 so it will take significant time either way.

I returned to an easy game I enjoyed but took a small break from – Guazu: The Rescue. I finished the first 20 levels and got 3 stars on each one. Now I have to wait for the next title update to get back to jumping around like a loony fox.

An unexpected game took my fancy this week in L.A. Noire which I’ve been meaning to play for some time. Although I played it on Xbox 360, I never got to experience the complete edition but with this version, I get to play the DLC cases I originally missed out on. I’m just about reaching the end of the Traffic desk and will move on to Homicide and Vice over the weekend. If one game deserves a sequel or remake, L.A. Noire should be highly considered, in my opinion.

Most interesting news of this week: Pre-orders for the SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition start on the 15th of April and yes, I’m eyeing up that ultimate edition… Also, House Flipper 2 was released yesterday but I intend to finish the first one before I consider the next one.

Looking forward to playing: I’m honestly not sure. This is forever changing depending on my mood so it’s almost certain to change no matter what I write here.


I’m madly, deeply, stupidly in love with Invector again. Invector Rhythm Galaxy is the follow-up to Avicii Invector but now with 40 various artists; I’m just head-over-heels in love with the game again. It’s all I can think about and all I want to play. This with a SUBPAC on and my Ambilight TV is pretty much the definition of heaven for me. I’ll have a review up soon! Until then, here is some GAMEPLAY!

I’ve also finished writing my review for Let’s! Revolution! which you can check [HERE]. It’s a roguelike game inspired by Minesweeper that is pretty addictive and I found myself playing it for a few weeks after getting the review code.

Lastly, I played a few rounds of Buckshot Roulette. A cheap PC game about playing Russian roulette with a creepy opponent. It kinda gives off Inscryption vibes, but the gameplay isn’t as deep. Basically, you try not to shoot yourself but the enemy and you have some items that help even the odds. I’d link to a gameplay clip of mine, but somehow the game always records with a stutter. Might do a tidbit review on it too!

Most interesting news of this week: The III showcase was yesterday with 30 announcements over 45 minutes. a nice new option for indies to showcase their games. but feels a bit too gated off still.

Looking forward to playing: Invector, obviously!!


It’s been a busy week on all fronts for me, but definitely a good kind of busy. Last Friday I flew out to Manchester and then travelled to Liverpool to join my Final Fantasy XIV free company yearly meetup. It had been since 2022 that I travelled to see such a big group of friends all in one place, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I even managed to complete the hot sauce challenge someone was holding.

In terms of games, I played more Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, going on a big crafting spree and gearing up to fight Ganondorf. I’m now stood at the precipes of the final boss arena, ready to dive in. I’ll do it any day now… I also played more Final Fantasy XIV, mainly focussing on the Castrum Marinarum extreme trial to get the final Gwiber to drop so I can get the big “Landerwaffe” robotic jet dragon mount. Which I got after way too many attempts. (my loot rolls are terrible)

In Honkai Star Rail I finally managed to get some progress in Acheron’s gear situation, resulting in only really needing some good boots for her until I’m done building her. Gallagher has also been kitted out with a pretty snazzy set, and Luocha is in a good spot too. I think I might just get on top of stuff before Jingliu’s rerun begins next week. It’ll be all hands on deck to bring her home then. I’m liking my odds, but that’s how anyone at the roulette table likes their odds.

Most interesting news of this week:  I’ve got nothing that others haven’t said already.

Looking forward to playing: I need to get back into Dragon’s Dogma 2 once work calms down a bit. And getting my Divinity Original Sin 2 group back together would be great too.


Hello readers, it’s been a while, but I’ve actually had some time to play some games this week! First up, South Park: Snow Day has been my main focus over the last week, and the review is very close to completion. Keep your eyes peeled for that dropping next week though.

The rest of my week has been consumed by Diablo 4 which is now on Game Pass & Content Warning on PC. If you aren’t aware of either of these two, I’ll assume you live under a rock. But that’s okay.

Diablo 4 has been every bit as addictive as its older brother Diablo 3. I’ve very much been enjoying playing as the Necromancer and completing all of the seasonal content. So far I’m level 60 and I’ve played for about 4 days. I think I’m doing pretty well overall, and for the love of everything hellish, can we talk about those cutscenes? Magnificent!

Content Warning was already on my radar but when they shadow-dropped it and made it free for 24 hours, I just had to grab it. If you are a fan of Lethal Company like me, you’ll appreciate the direction of Content Warning. Essentially you play survivors in the new world who want to go viral on spook tube. It’s basically YouTube but for horror enthusiasts. You and your friends go down to the old world, film something scary, retreat and then upload the footage in the hopes of going viral and making that sweet ad revenue. The concept is great, it’s short, sweet and to the point. The camera you use in the game actually records footage from the game and once it’s been uploaded you can actually save it to your PC for sharing on social media and with friends. It’s great. There are tons of customisable features, such as your character’s face, and also the equipment you bring along. I highly recommend it.

Most interesting news of this week: Is there any? Dead Space 2 remake gossip I guess.

Looking forward to playing: Diablo 4.


This week I finally finished playing my second playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077 and my first playthrough of its DLC Phantom Liberty. Buying the DLC was definitely worth it, as it adds a very good story and a bunch of new content. I did the exact same ending of my first playthrough because I couldn’t make myself make different decisions 😅 but it was worth it.

Also played a little bit of Slay the SpireDarkest Dungeon and Heart & Slash

Most interesting news of this week: Slay the Spire 2 being announced.

Looking forward to playing: Not sure what game I’ll be playing next yet, but I think it’ll be Starfield.


Something I neglected to mention last week, as I didn’t know if I’d be able to play it with regularity, is that I started The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. I enjoyed the Phoenix Wright trilogy immensely, same goes for most of the games that came later. I am so glad that this is still the case with this one.

Beyond that, I got a new game for review just a couple of days ago. I expect to have my thoughts on it already published by next week so you’ll be able to read about it in length. Though for those who enjoy a mystery and some speculation, I have already shared some of my thoughts on this game before…

Most interesting news of this week: Ubisoft announced Star Wars Outlaws merely two days ago and the discourse around the game has been primarily negative. The community has put an outcry against the game’s price, the pre-order bonuses, the price of the special editions, the fact that those editions come with DLC on release, the always-online requirement… In short, the community has grown beyond tired of these practices and they have no qualms in voicing it all out. Let’s hope some relevant people are listening.

Looking forward to playing: I’m making great progress with The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, so more of that! And some more of the Mystery Game!
