Long weekend of gaming
October 26, 2014
So after a few gym sessions last week, yoga this morning, I deserve some gaming time, and I’ve a few new varied titles to play with… including my back catalogue, I’ve been ticking off Watch Dogs missions.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Learn the story behind Borderlands 2’s villain, Handsome Jack, and his ascendance to power in this new game in the Borderlands series. Taking place between the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, the Pre-Sequel gives you a bunch of new gameplay featuring the genre fusion of shooter and RPG gameplay. Metacritic 76
Leave defenders in your dust or control the ball like the world’s top soccer players. Competitors tear into action with improved balance, cuts and closer touches when in possession, giving greater responsiveness and personality to the game’s superstars. Experience enhanced control as you keep the ball in a sprint or when searching for an opening in those close-touch situations

Ardent fans of the Fifa football games know two things to be true whenever the latest instalment arrives. It will be mostly the same game as before, and it will also be the best football simulation ever. EA Sports, much like Apple with its iDevices, has found a winning formula, and it is reluctant to do more than drip feed us tiny changes every year.
Super Time Force
Super Time Force is a frantic, hyper-action videogame filled with total mayhem, total madness and total non-stop shooty-shooty-bam-bam destruction. And yet, it also has super sweet, soothing, perhaps even sublime, moments of sloooow motion. Every level in Super Time Force contains 3 mysterious inter-dimensional objects called Shards, which can be used to control the flow of time, slowing it down like velvety smooth molasses, allowing players to unleash a truly heroic level of dodging, weaving, sniping and precision acrobatics Metacritic 81
Jef Leppard FTW!
And the one I’m looking forward to the most; from Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil, and published by Bethesda
The Evil Within
While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a menacing and powerful force. After witnessing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a daunting journey to unravel that which is behind this evil force. Metacritic No score yet
This game as the feel of early Resident Evil titles, and even looks Capcom, through an HD filter. I’m not a big horror fan, this is bringing back a lot of the excitement of the ’90’s 🙂
