What are you playing?
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’re playing this week …
- Final Fantasy XIV (PS4): Best finish up the main scenario before Shadowbringers comes out! If you’re on Moogle, you should add me! I’m Kanem Argentum.
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch): Practising with our new boy Joker! He is really cool especially when his rebellion gauge powers up and you unleash your Persona, Arsene!
- Persona 5 (PS4): Smash brought me back here.
- Dark Sector (PS3): In my quest to replay most of my PS3 backlog because Sony decided to brick my fat PS3 a few years ago (and blocked the option to salvage my data), I decided to replay this underrated gem. Sure, it’s a bit rough around the edges and most people probably never heard of it, but it’s a sleeper gem.
- Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor Overclocked (3DS): Still not done. Got my ass handed to me by Beelzebub. More grinding to go!
- Final Fantasy XIII (XB1): I’m savoring every second of this game. Still my favorite Final Fantasy title.
- Warhammer: Chaosbane 2nd Closed Beta (XB1X): Played through the second closed beta for a preview piece, and got to try out the Dwarf Slayer and Wood Elf Archer. Could it be a replacement for Diablo 3? We will have to wait and see.
- Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: (XB1X): Finishing off bits and bobs that I missed during levelling whilst exploring the end game content. I really enjoy this game, just wish matchmaking was 1000% faster.
- World of Warcraft: (PC): Partook of the new mini-raid Crucible of Storms. Some really fun boss mechanics, just a shame that it’s all set in a dank dark cave as the scenery is very lacklustre.
- Imperator Rome (PC): We’ll have a review up for this on Thursday but I can tell you that I’ve been leading an incredibly unsuccessful campaign that’s seen Londinium fall about seven times since I’ve played, I wonder if I could make Rome fall in a day?
- Hitman 2 (XB1): I’m still struggling to claim a Silent Assassin on Hantu Port, if only blowing people up wasn’t so much fun.
- Stellaris: Console Edition (PS4): This feels like my new World of Warcraft. Of course, it’s nothing like World of Warcraft other than I spend far too much of my time playing it. Considering how put off I was by the insane amount of menus when I first switched it on, I’m honestly shocked I’ve put so many hours into it.
