What are you playing this weekend?
With Melbourne still on lockdown and much of the gaming world on hiatus as E3 2021 rolls around, the weekend is a good time to check in with some of the smaller parts of the gaming world.
I have constantly worked my way through SERIOUS this week the HEXEN-Inspired retro shooter that I streamed last week. Zack didn’t have the best time with the latest Realms 3D shooter. It’s in early access and there are certainly some pacing issues, but the experience is authentic enough that it made me think about revisiting some of the other work of 3D Realms. I also had my eye on Peach recently, with Nightdive Studios due to remaster soon, and I never managed to play the Shadow Man remaster.
But one game officially released this week and something very popular in my house: card games.
I spent a lot of time with Griftlands last year during the lockdown, after it launched in Early Access. I always intended to write about it but never made it, but I still remember introducing it to friends and family Kill the arrow so many.
This week, full Griftlands the campaign is finally available. It was a cracker of a game in its earlier form, as most Klei games are, and the deck building elements are sturdy enough without having some of the inconsistency issues you can sometimes run into with. Kill the arrow. (It’s very easy to build a completely synergy-free deck in Arrow if you don’t know what you are doing – Griftlands gives you more leeway in this regard.)
I can’t wait, a year later, to finally see where the campaign is going. And you, what are you playing this weekend?
