PS3A PlayTime: 25th-31st Mar 2013
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the PS3A team’s most played game of last week was the incredible BioShock Infinite. If you’re yet to pick up Irrational Games’ masterpiece, we seriously suggest you correct this error in your life! Other games that got some play time this week were The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Lumines: Electronic Symphony and Persona 4: Golden.
In the last week I’ve focused on the agonising decision of which title to award my Editor’s Choice gong in the PS3 Attitude Awards. In addition, I have (of course) continued my assault on Lumines: Electronic Symphony. I also did a massive Spring Clean in the review room. I’ve pulled together two huge prize packs from the promo drawers, so look out for a Twitter-based competition real soon. Let’s just say that now would be a good time to make sure you’re following me, @DolphGB, on Twitter right now. In addition to the prizes, I found a whole raft of ‘retro’ titles to play through again, so expect some blasts from the past over the next few weeks.
I picked up BioShock Infinite this week, but since I’ve never played any of the BioShock games before (SHOCKER!), I’m starting from the beginning with the original. Thankfully it’s included with the PS3 version of Infinite, and with BioShock 2 previously available as part of the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, I have all my bases covered. It’s going to be one Big Daddy of a week!
Like the broken record I am, I’ve been playing loads of Persona 4: Golden again! Absolutely loving it. Also been playing SSX and BioShock Infinite but neither are defeating the Persona 4 addiction I have going on. Bought Persona 1,2 and 3 so expect more Persona next week! Also watching the animation, so it’s quite the Persona overload.
The good (read: awesome) news this week is that my Alienware Aurora finally arrived after weeks of waiting! The bad news is that I haven’t been able to use it quite as much as I would have liked, because I caught a flu bug a few days ago and even now am still trying to get rid of it. I still have tons of music, emails and other files to transfer from my old laptop, but I have at least been able to try out a few games, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Rage, and the newly released BioShock Infinite, all of which run like an absolute dream. Who needs PS4, eh?
