And so it began, the season of despair. The season of broken piggy banks and neglected relationships. The season of AAA video game releases. Destiny 2 came, stayed and comes again in 2 weeks when the PC version releases and I finally get my hands on it. The EA Sports shit is out, Xbox finally had 2 releases with Forza 7 and Cuphead. Fine, Cuphead isn’t exactly AAA – fine, it isn’t at all, but hey, at least an Xbox exclusive that isn’t a racing game, and speaking of indies: this week has seen the gates of indie-halla open on the Switch with Golf Story and Ports of Oxenfree, Stardew Valley, Volgarr, Axiom Verge and more. Sounds great so far, but brace yourselves, because it only just begun.
This month will see Super Mario Odyssey, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Microtransactions and bad PR, The Evil Within 2, WWE 2k18, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Elex, Gran Turismo Sport, Just Dance 2018, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Fire Emblem Warriors and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.
I hate October.
But what is everyone playing over the weekend?
Thomas: Golf Story, Stardew Valley, Fifa 18, maybe some more Zelda. Right now the Switch is my #1 played console, which is something I would have never expected to say a year ago.
Scroo: So pretty much the same as last week for me. Divinity OS-2 and Hob plus more Vermintide.
Greywolfe: winding down stories. just got four or so more to fill in the entire book. it's been a blast, so far. i finally [and eventually] picked up space quest 5, properly. i only remember very small pieces of this, so it's going to be...interesting going back and seeing it again. i'm about half way through dream daddy - doing proper runs with proper outcomes, instead of just doing one to see what the game has in store and i'm enjoying it immensely. not every run is "my cup of tea," but it's interesting to see the little stories they've woven around each character. lastly, i'm going to seriously pick up kyrandia 2 and finish it off. i meant to do something about it all week and then didn't :P
AJ: Another World and Forza 6.
Cody: I'm hooked on dat Fornite Battle Royale
