I was expecting this month to be an expensive one in terms of games, but since most of the reviews for the big releases were kind of meh and Crackdown 3 was good enough to come out on game pass. I made the decision that I wasn’t going to pay full whack for any of them. I sort of feel as if I’m being steadily skilled out of Apex Legends, so I’m back on Destiny 2 with the season of the drifter starting this week.
I’m finding the new gambit mode okay. I don’t think it has the initial impact of the original gambit mode, but I do appreciate the one and done aspect to it. Definitely feels busier and more compact and the primeval becomes more of a tug of war battle with the opposing team. I felt with regular gambit it had become a game where people knew exactly how to melt the primeval within seconds. Don’t think I’m strong enough to take the Trials Gambit mode but so far Destiny 2 is my ‘career game’ of choice.
Also really digging the story behind the update about gambit being a means for Guardians to flirt with darkness rather than light. They don’t need to go all in and explaing gambit with lore, but I do love it and it does pave the way forward to a more interesting incarnation of Destiny 3 - whatever that will end up being.
Also purchased Ape Out for the Switch. I like the aesthetic most of all, it is the most striking element of it. A kind of jazz fused splatter punk version of Hot Line Miami. It’s okay to kill the people around you because they are doing experiments on you!
Other than that, I’m just biding my time until Sekiro. I don’t need to see anything else about that game to know it’s going to be a doozy. And I do not say doozy lightly.
