It’s a testament to how many awesome games have been released over the last few months that, despite having a busy week, the PS4 Attitude team still found some time for Destiny, Dragon Quest Heroes, Mad Max, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Until Dawn and more.
Destiny stole all of my gaming time again this week, and also frustrated me somewhat. A special timed event was in play, thanks to Halloween and the Day of the Dead (it seems), and while the purple candles that adorned The Tower looked nice, the rewards were largely unavailable due to complexity and prerequisites. So, fun enough, but not a great week for rewards unless you have all the right pieces in place already, or unless you’re able to spend ages in the game (I’m not right now). Still, I had some great Crucible matches, so that’s a good thing. There’s a chance I’ll diversify my gaming portfolio soon, so look out for some non-Destiny updates.
I had an extremely busy week, so I wasn’t able to play as much as I’d like. I did start my playthrough of Resident Evil: Revelations, however, and am enjoying it quite a lot so far. It is very much a throwback to the classic era of Resident Evil gameplay, but with the updated control system. The episodic nature of it is a bit weird, I’ll admit, but it’s nice to play as multiple characters throughout. I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to get to Revelations 2 this week, but I’m looking forward to it, if it’s anything like the first.
This week I’ve been playing Dragon Quest Heroes, DmC: Devil May Cry, Rocket League and a whole lot of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which currently stands as my game of the year. I love Persona, I love rhythm, and so the game is a dream for me and I’ve almost clocked in 50 hours already, as well as having the platinum! I’ve also played a bit of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as I plan to pick up Black Ops 3 soon. Meanwhile, I’ve been really put off Fallout 4 by the reports of some pretty bad bugs, so I’d rather wait for those to be sorted first.
Outlast has had a lot of play time too; I’ve made a lot of progress and it’s become less scary, but it’s still so tense! I’m really enjoying it and have the DLC ready to go too, so I’m interested to see how Outlast 2 will turn out. There aren’t a lot of big games coming out for the rest of the year that I’m truly excited about, but Sword Art Online: Lost Song releases this week and I’ve been waiting for that one for a long time.
Like the rest of the team, I also had a busy week, but managed to make some progress on Mad Max (still great fun), Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward (hugely excited for tomorrow’s new content!), and Persona 4: Dancing All Night (read my review here). However, the main game I played was actually Until Dawn, which I’ve been meaning to return to for a couple of months, ever since I completed my first playthrough. I’m currently on track to keep everyone alive, as well as find all of the collectibles, so hopefully I’ll be able to unlock the platinum trophy very soon.
