Our Week in Games – Week 125

Our Week in Games – Week 125

While we here at Reticule Towers have had a snoozy week, the world has gone wild with plucky Redditors taking on the Wall Street giants (and Robinhood) over shares in GameStop. It is a bonkers situation to see this bricks and mortar shop dominate the business and financial news the world over, but is a sign of how technology and improved communication tools can have a tangible effect on the real world.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Verdict

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Verdict

As the years have gone by, Ubisoft have worked to evolve and iterate the Assassin’s Creed formula, moving away from the city games to vast open world RPGs. There have been self-inflicted wounds along the journey with an unhealthy corporate culture leading to a large restructure in their editorial teams in the summer, but ultimately Valhalla was delivered in time for the launch of the new console generation and it’s a brilliant piece of work.

Thoughts on the PlayStation 5

It’s been a little over a week since I picked up my PlayStation 5 from GAME, and I thank my lucky stars I was able to get an in-store pre-order without having to rely on delivery services.

Unfortunately, but also predictably, Freedom Fighters was no longer compatible with my machine.

So it was something of a delight when IO unexpectedly dropped the game on digital stores last week. I had a bunch of other titles lined up to play, but I just couldn’t stop myself from diving back in to see if the game I’d fell so in love with as a kid was just as I remembered it.

The Outer Worlds – The Verdict

The Outer Worlds – The Verdict

If we did classic scores rather than Verdict’s, The Outer Worlds would have been given that classic 7/10 score. A rating which indicates a game is well rounded and generally pretty good, without being outstanding. You know, something you might pick up when it’s on offer. Funnily enough, The Outer Worlds has just landed on Steam and GOG after a year of Epic exclusivity with a two week 50% off deal, and for £24.99, I’d suggest it’s something worth your while picking up.
