What I'm Playing
I recently played the new God of War for PS4. I wasn’t a huge fan of the previous titles. They were largely monster-grinders and although there were puzzles the games lacked depth. The latest instalment however has depth in abundance. In fact the story — one of a man and his son building a relationship — is surprisingly nuanced and charming. While the game remains extremely violent, it’s the interactions between the characters that will really make you smile.
Additionally to God of War I’m still playing Elder Scrolls Online (also on PS4), though less frequently at the moment. There’s new content due soon so I expect my interest to pick up again.
I’ve also just started to play Conan Exiles; a game that gained a certain amount of notoriety for it’s anatomically correct player avatars. From the developers:
The game is part action-adventure, part survival game, and part Minecraft. You start with nothing and gather resources to craft shelter and equipment which lets you craft better equipment and enables you to go on ever more daring adventures. It’s got a huge open world which tweaks my Skyrim-esque exploration enjoyment and while it’s penis-physics (yeah that’s a thing) are a little silly I’m really enjoying the game.
