A load of new games in the Black Friday offers.
New game pickups
- Path of Exile Shadow Stalker Pack (PC)
- Battle Chasers: Nightwar (PS4)
- Dragon Age: Inquisition Game of the Year Edition (PS4)
- Starlink Starter Pack and a couple of ship packs (Xbox & Switch)
- Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (Xbox)
- Batman: Arkham Knight Premium Edition (PS4)
- What Remains of Edith Finch (PS4)
- Brothers: a Tale of two Sons (PS4)
What should have been a quiet month went a little bit crazy during Black Friday deals with some unplanned purchases. I have purchased Starlink Starter pack for Xbox One and Switch! With two of the exclusive ships packs (Scramble & Cerberus). I don’t necessarily want to spend on a full set or anything but quite like the look of the game and the concept. A game up until now I took no interest in.
I also picked up Battle Chasers and Dragon Age: Inquisition Game of the Year Edition as they were under £15 for both in a pre-Black Friday PSN promotion (and no I didn’t want the other games in the THQ Nordic PlayStation Humble Bundle). I thought Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration for £9 was exceptional value and too good to pass up.
Having got into Path of Exile I also purchased some stash and currency tabs. And just today took advantage of some of the cheap prices in the PSN Flash Sale after Cyber Monday to pick up Arkham Knight, What Remains of Edith Finch and Brothers. I owned Arkham Knight on disc when it first came out but sold it on when I barely had a chance to play it and realised there would be a complete version at some point. Under ten pounds for the Premium edition is a bargain.
Been playing (Grouvee Link)
- World of Warcraft including the WoW Classic Blizzcon demo
- Path of Exile
Spent a few hours playing the WoW Classic demo. Really interesting seeing the vanilla experience. Very stark contrast to what current WoW is. Combat is much slower paced, stacking skills and buffs etc as you wait for hits to land. In fact everything much slower; movement, questing and levelling too. I only played from The Burning Crusade so not sure if I’ll play this, but was really fun to play.
As noted in a recent blog post I’ve picked up Path of Exile again. Put about 15 hours or so into the Delve season, but holding off for the new season now. And finally I’ve been playing a lot of Tetris on the Game Boy. That game never gets old.
For the third month in a row, no games completed or abandoned…woops. WoW, playing with retro games and now PoE are to blame for that.
Updates & Up next
A few minor edits to the site, although the main one being changing ‘shelved’ to ‘abandoned’ on relevant pages – including this one.
With Christmas looming a number of games I would love to play. That said with my Game Pass subscription expiring soon I’m going to prioritise completing Rage if I can.
