Time to look back on the weekend! How did Friday, Saturday, and Sunday look like for our writers? What was the biggest news from last week and what are we looking forward to? These three questions will be answered in our Eyes on the Week(end) article!
We’re curious for your opinion and played games, so be sure to share your stuff on our social media channels!
This entire weekend was spent accumulating gamerscore with Lewis on multiple ‘easy’ titles. We started up Resident Evil 2 together which is without a doubt a beautiful game, both graphically and gameplay-wise; I’d be lying if I said we haven’t both jumped at various instances. Also spent a large chunk of time rewatching Gotham because it’s such a fantastic series and I would highly recommend it to almost anyone who has Netflix.
Most exciting news of last week: Seeing that Supermassive’s The Quarry is being released onto Xbox on 10th June has got me extremely excited!
Looking forward to playing this week: Shredders (Hoping my childhood playing SSX will assist me here), Dead by Daylight, and Achievement Hunting.
I’ve always been a card game fan, so I decided to reconnect with an old beloved. Well, not that old actually. I’m talking about The Elder Scrolls: Legends. As I’m a big fan of The Elder Scrolls franchise, I remember getting super excited when they released this card game a few years ago. I wasn’t expecting there to be a lot of players left, but I never had to wait more than 30 seconds for a match. The rest of my weekend was spent with my boyfriend but also started playing No Place Like Home, a game I’m currently reviewing. Without giving away too much, I already want to tell you that I am absolutely loving this one. Definitely not a perfect game, but it sucked me in and I cannot wait to play it a lot more this week!
Most exciting news of last week: The Hogwarts Legacy trailer for sure. I’m a huge Potterhead so I’m insanely excited about this one.
Looking forward to playing this week: No Place Like Home and hopefully I have the time to dive into Tunic as well!
As per usual as of late, most of my time went into Elden Ring. I’m 50 hours in and have a LVL 105 character yet still feel like I haven’t even seen half of the game. My Switch also got a lot of attention this week, with Chocobo GP and Mario Kart 8 (new DLC) offering some nice karting for when I have a spare 5-10 minutes to burn. Then I started playing Gal Gun: Double Peace, a pervy game that I usually don’t give any attention to, but since I received a code I wanted to give it a go just to see what all the fuss is about. Turns out that getting to look at underpants is literally the only selling point of the game as the gameplay and story are nothing special. Didn’t play it during the weekend, but still wanted to highlight Shredders here because most people only started playing it now. It’s a fun snowboarding game, it’s Belgian and it’s on Xbox Game Pass, so be sure to check it out. You can read my review [HERE]
Most exciting news of last week: Mario Kart 8 DLC tracks dropped and rekindled my love for the game.
Looking forward to playing this week: More Elden Ring, to no one’s surprise. + I’ll get back into Triangle Strategy.
This weekend I only managed to get some game time in on Saturday with Elden Ring. As I’m sure you have heard already from everyone who has played it, the game is huge and I am meticulously taking my time to explore every corner of the map. With Elden Ring taking up a majority of my time, I did manage to also play some Super Mario Party on the switch with my kids. It amazes me just how bad I am at that game, with even the CPU bearing me in most games. Finally, I played some of the updated GTA V on PlayStation 5 with its fidelity mode and ray tracing. Overall the game really didn’t need another re-release in my opinion but with a super cheap launch price for the first 3 months, it was tenting to dive back in again for the 100th time. On Sunday, I spent time working on my Game jam entry so didn’t have time for anything else.
Most exciting news of last week: Watching the announcement trailer for The Quarry. A new interactive horror game from supermassive games. It has a lot of slasher movie actors in this including David Arquette & Ted Raimi.
Looking forward to playing this week: Elden Ring & finishing up my final run on Sifu
I continued playing Yakuza Like A Dragon this weekend, I’m finally at the last chapter of it. Also managed to play Tabletop Simulator with a couple of friends.
Most exciting news of last week: There’s nothing that got me extremely excited this week, but from everything that happened, I’d say that the Tekken Bloodline anime announcement got my interest.
Looking forward to playing this week: Finish Yakuza Like A Dragon and get back to Pumpkin Jack which I started a while ago, but never got to finish.
Different from the last week or two, Elden Ring only took up a small portion of the gaming that was had this weekend. Even though a lot of people have already beat it at least once, a lot haven’t so I’ll avoid detailing what I got up to. But it involved a lot of snow, invisible assassins and me breaking a giant’s lower leg. What did get the lion’s share of my time was Shredders which I played on Xbox. Being learned in the ways of SSX Tricky & SSX 3 this one is rather technical. The good kind of technical. The kind that has you reset lots as you fling your body of a mountain at dazzling speeds. Good thing I did finally start to get the hang of it.
Most exciting news of last week: Shredders launched on Thursday the 17th of March. Since I grew up playing the SSX games I naturally looked forward to this.
Looking forward to playing this week: Tiny Tina’s Wonderland. I’m a big Borderlands fan, so I’ve been looking forward to this one.
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!
