Each week we’ll give you the low-down on the games that have been keeping the GGS Gamer staff busy on their consoles, PCs and handhelds.
Here’s what we’ve been playing this week …
- Sega Mega Drive Classics (PS4) – Felt great to revisit my childhood classics with some friends and give some couch co-op ago on Streets of Rage!
- Dark Souls Remastered (PS4) – Death to all those who stand opposed to Magnum Legenda!
- Battlefield 1 (XB1) – Seeing BFV during E3 made me want to continue this game. Plus it’s also me taking a hit at my backlog.
- BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle (PS4) – Such a fun fighter; easy to pick up and play, great a few short bursts of gaming.
- Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Currently working my way to have all the characters at level 99 and building the perfect Lucifer.
- Elder Scrolls Online (PC) – Still enjoying working my way through this game, and I’m continually amazed at how much there is to do and see in it. I can spend countless hours just running around the map without ever getting bored.
- For Honor (PC) – Okay, I was one of the worst for ripping into For Honor – making fun of its premise, ragging on it for not really having any real campaign – and of course, I did this without ever having played it. BUT… I’ve played it now – well, just the tutorial, and of course, it’s actually pretty fun. What struck me most was the attention to historical accuracy. I wrote a feature about this very subject a couple of months ago, and I think For Honor addresses this very well – it seems that we rarely get a game that offers up fun and intuitive gameplay whilst also teaching us about the 1000 year war between barbarians, knights, and samurais, and I’m looking forward to showing off my new knowledge of history at my next Historical Lover’s club. But in all seriousness, For Honor is a good bit of fun and I’m looking forward to getting a bit more involved.
- Quake Champions (PC) – I’m still terrible, but Quake’s a tough game to get good at.
- Radical Heights (PC) – Ah man, I’ve not played this enough, some really good ideas are hidden away in this game – if you’ve got a PC, give it a go before the servers up and die – RIP, Boss Key.
- Elder Scrolls Online (PS4) – Just about to begin exploring Summerset properly for a short video series we’ll be doing, should be fun – so watch out for that (yes, I’m inserting a horrible plug for our upcoming video series, I’m sorry?)
- Bless Online (PC) – Still perservering, but unfortunately starting to lose interest. Determined to get to max level though and have a look at what endgame content is on offer.
