Looking around for what to review, and my eyes kept focusing on my PlayStation 5. OK, it was because I just wanted to kick back and play games, but while I am trying to write up PC guides, I thought why not review this console? So after a film review that wasn’t a review, welcome to a console review that isn’t quite a review either!
Board games have a category called Gateway Games. These are light, easy to learn games that introduce new players to mechanics used in heavier games. Immortals: Fenyx Rising is the closest I have seen to a gateway video game, a great introduction to open-world exploration RPGs. This accessibility does have a cost for experienced players though.
Tomorrow I am reviewing Cyberpunk 2077. I am eager to share my thoughts on the game, and my adventures in Night City. But to say that there has been a lot of controversy and attention to things surrounding the game would be an understatement. Some of this is deserved, but not everything the headlines say I believe is completely true. Buckle in though – this is a long read!
When I saw the Bugsnax trailer in the PS5 showcase earlier this year, I was intrigued. While I haven’t played Octodad, Young Horses previous game, I am aware of its almost cult status. And getting the game included with PlayStation Plus meant that I just had to play it! What did I think? Well, that’s what the review is for!
The good part about being on holidays – I have time to rest and play games! The better part is I have time to write about them! Reviews are back, and hopefully will remain a weekly feature again
I’ve talked about it long enough, and here it is – my review of The Outer Worlds. I don’t go deep into gameplay, but I have a bit to say about the Switch port – mainly I don’t seem to have the same problems others have. I suspect it’s my SD card? I talk about it in the review.
Have a great weekend everyone!
So I didn’t get to play much Outer Worlds this week, so that review is still a little ways away. But I did pick up a new game for the Switch on sale. It won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy playing Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack and/or Page One but don’t like playing online, then The Card may be a game for you.
It does give The Game a run for its money as the worst searchable game title though! Seriously, who thought that finding The Card Switch would show this title?
