With the final month of the year almost upon us, the PS4 Attitude team have been playing a selection of 2015’s best games, including Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Star Wars: Battlefront and Tearaway Unfolded.
I left Fallout 4 in the shelter this week, since I had very little gaming time available. Why does available time matter in making this decision? Because when you’re faced with personal progression through an amazing new universe that you know is going to last a very long time, versus levelling up quickly in a multiplayer environment so you don’t get left behind – like the one in Star Wars: Battlefront – you choose the latter.
So that’s what I did. I grabbed my blaster/sabre/implosion bomb (or whatever your favourite weapon of choice is – there are lots), and headed into match after match until I ran out of time. While SW:B doesn’t quite capture me in the way MP gaming in The Last of Us or Destiny does, the time sure passes quickly, and it’s a lot of fun.
The adventures of Vault Boy will continue, but Fallout deserves my full attention, whereas SW:B needs almost no investment. In the battle of Star Wars versus Fallout, how much available time I have determines the winner.
I spent more time this week with Resident Evil: Revelations 2. While I’m enjoying it so far, it just doesn’t have the same feel as the original Revelations did. I’m not a fan of switching back and forth between characters all the time, either. Maybe it’s better with co-op, though. It’s definitely still a solid game, and I’ll likely finish it sometime; I guess I was just expecting something more improved.
I continued to play Zen Pinball 2 on my Vita, homing in on better records and increasing my Pro/Team Scores. I still have a long ways to go before I’m at the top of my friends list, however. But no matter. I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of the game, especially since Zen Studios continues to put out quality content on a regular basis.
This week I’ve been playing more Persona 4: Dancing All Night, with roughly 55 hours clocked in and counting! All the DLC seems to be out now too, and I’m loving the new songs and Hatsune Miku’s appearance. Also on Vita, I’ve played some Superbeat: Xonic and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f 2nd, so it’s clear that my love for rhythm games is as prevalent as ever!
Otherwise I’ve been playing and enjoying Black Ops 3, Dragon Quest Heroes, Tearaway Unfolded (which I loved on Vita), Mortal Kombat X and Rayman Legends. As far as I know, there aren’t any new games coming out for the rest of the year that I’m interested in on Sony consoles, but I look forward to the sales and seeing if there’s anything I haven’t already played!
