Weekend Weekly Gaming of May 19, 2018
Burnout Revenge (XB1 via Backwards compatibility): When the game was announced as being backwards compatible, I was excited since Fast RMX and Split Second revived my itch for arcade racers. While the Forza Horizon series mixes arcade with sim, I still miss the craziness of pure fun arcade action. This will be my most played game this upcoming weekend.
Yooka Laylee (NS): After playing the game, I’m having a blast collecting notes, I mean “pagies.” I am starting to see why the game got mixed reactions. I will continue to move on, but while it does feel like Banjo Kazooie, it’s not. Or to put it another way, it’s fun but it feels like its relying too much on me to remember their previous games.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4): Honestly, I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. I bought this game on Black Friday, still sealed, and was thinking about giving it a go, but now a Nintendo Switch version is coming out soon. I prefer Nintendo systems for platform games because of preference. I’m debating whether to finally play it or trade it in for the upcoming Switch version.
Safe House (PC) – I will be playing this upcoming game about building and managing a safe house for spies, followed by a review.
Path of Exile: Flashback (PC) – I’ll be finishing leveling to 35 of my character to get the promotional free mystery box.
Fire Emblem Heroes (Android) – As usual, leveling my random heroes. This weekend there is a Grand Conquest that I’ll be doing.
