PS3A PlayTime: 15th-21st Apr 2013
This week, DolphGB got sucked even further into the intriguing world of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, Majiesto prepared himself for the arrival of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita with its super-sized demo, MitchJay92 realised that Persona isn’t the only videogame franchise that exists, and I took a trip into the clouds with the incredible BioShock Infinite.
I have spent the entire week playing Virtue’s Last Reward on the Vita. I have bought other games to play, including the much-lauded Guacamelee, but they haven’t had a look in. And I really wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. You see, the nature of VLR is that you can’t talk to anyone about the game unless they have completed all 40+ hours. The only person I know on the team that has managed that is Stefhutch, and we’ve had a short chat about it, but he really can’t tell me anything until I complete it too. Oh, Virtue’s Last Reward – you are a little minx.
I didn’t spend much time on my PS3 at all this week, unfortunately. I did, however, get to dabble with the Soul Sacrifice demo on the Vita, and it is glorious. It’s the perfect example of how a demo should be, as it’s basically the entire first chapter of the game. Most importantly, it’s gotten me very excited for Soul Sacrifice’s release next week. Can’t wait!
As Injustice: Gods Among Us released on Friday, I’ve been playing that a lot. The story was satisfying and so is the combat, but as a Catwoman player I feel like I have no chance online from the Superman and Deathstroke spammers I keep getting paired with. I’ve also been playing Persona 4: Golden (of course, but I thought I’d give Yu a chance to rest from being my weekly PlayTime avatar) and Persona 3 Portable. Been enjoying Sonic Generations, Dead or Alive 5 and Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi. I watched the entire Persona 4 Animation and hope that the third box makes its way to Europe soon, as it looks stunning on Blu-ray.
In the last couple of days I finally started a proper playthrough of BioShock Infinite, which continues to amaze. Columbia could well be the most absorbing game world I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit, with a level of detail that is absolutely insane. Between combing each area for loot and stopping to admire the scenery, I’m progressing at a ridiculously slow pace – despite having played it for several hours, I’ve only just met Elizabeth! As well as Infinite, I’ve also been playing Dead or Alive 5 Plus (just for a change), and returned to an old save file on Dragon Age: Origins, which I’ve been playing on and off for the last few months.
