PS3A PlayTime: 29th Apr-5th May 2013
If you bet that this week Majiesto has been playing Soul Sacrifice, MitchJay92 has been playing every Persona game ever made, and I’ve been playing BioShock Infinite and Final Fantasy XIII, then I have very good news: you win! Yes, like the ever-predictable people that we are, we’ve been playing those same games yet again. But there’s always next week, right?
For the past two weeks you’ve been reading about me playing the Soul Sacrifice demo and waiting for the game to come out. Well, I can firmly say that it’s been worth the wait. I’m absolutely loving Soul Sacrifice. It’s essentially Monster Hunter for Vita, if you’re into those types of games. Soul Sacrifice is good for both when you only want to spend a couple of minutes in a mission or want to delve into the game for hours.
I’ve been playing Persona 4 Arena a lot (more than is probably healthy) and have been highly enjoying it, as you can read in our review! I’ve also been playing Persona 3 Portable and a bit of Persona 4. It’s possible I fell inside a Persona-shaped hole without any means to escape. Other than Persona, I’ve been playing Siren Blood Curse, The Unfinished Swan, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Injustice: Gods Among Us and Thomas Was Alone. The camera angles in Siren make it difficult, as well as the intense darkness, but I’m enjoying it and it’s quite creepy! Been loving The Unfinished Swan and Thomas Is Alone hugely too; both are well worth checking out!
Sadly there’s not much new to report this week, as I’ve mainly been continuing with my ongoing playthroughs of BioShock Infinite on PC and Final Fantasy XIII on PS3. Irrational’s masterpiece really does keep getting better and better, and every time I replay FFXIII I’m reminded why it’s one of my favourite games of all time. I know that’s a somewhat controversial opinion, but there’s just something about it that I absolutely love. I also grabbed Spec Ops: The Line during a sale on Steam, and in just half an hour of play time I’ve already started to see a little of why Majiesto raved about it so much last year.
