Noobtoob's Week in Gaming: 30/07/18
  • Remember the other week when I didn't actually play anything all week?  Basically that.

    Did download Titanfall 2 after it was on the Xbox sale for £5 - that just seems too good to miss - but have yet to play it, obviously.  There is actually some very good deals to be had in that sale (particularly if you, say, had only just joined the current gen of consoles and had missed out on a lot of major game releases over the last 4 and a bit years...).

    OK, that's it from me.
  • Titanfall 2 has a really good campaign. I thought multiplayer was fun too but it's only hardcore players that play it so if you try it, expect to have a k:d ratio of about 1:100 every match. It's super fast and deadly and skill-based. I never got anywhere close to good at it.

    I played nothing.
  • Resident Evil 7 - Finished it, played through it again, now ready for Madhouse. It's a lot of fun. Nowhere near as long as recent RE games though. Beating it under 4 hours was a breeze.

    That's about it this week. I went out and bought a proper gaming pc over the weekend so maybe now I can play all those games I've been buying on Steam all these years. Or just use it for PornHub like everyone else.


  • Resident Evil 7 - Did Madhouse and all the collectables. Just a few miscellaneous trophies to get now.
     

    No Man's Sky - Bought it for $15 to try the NEXT patch, to see if the game was any good now. I never played the original release, but if this is the result of 2 more years work, it must have been really shit back then. I'm finding it a combination of boredom and frustration. This is the kind of game I imagine depressed accountants play, the kind of people who thought Minecraft had too much action and needed more resource management. 

    Border Break - This is a free to play game on the Japanese PSN store. I played a bit of it, and it seems OK. Very B-grade and clunky. It's basically a power armour game, similar to Warframe in concept but miles behind in execution, you pick a pilot and armour, then you can join in online 4v4 battles (mainly king of the hill type stuff) or you can play through the story mode.


    Kingdom Come Deliverance - Played a few more hours. It's starting to grow on me and become more enjoyable.I like that levelling up skills allows the player to feel the difference, and feel their character getting better. I also like they are increased by using them, rather than just by levelling them with xp or whatever. I finally levelled my strength enough now that I can wear all my armour and shit without being overburdened.
