This week in gaming, aka TWIG, shines a light on the top stories in gaming land of the past week.
To celebrate the Division beta (which has ended, lol) and the upcoming release (March 8), I want to share this video with you. It’s entertaining and gives you some information about the game, which is amazing!
Here you go!
Have you ever played Rocket League? I’m sure you have, because it’s one of the most popular console (and PC) games of the moment. It’s a great game and I had lots of fun playing it, but there is a dark side to the moon as well..
PlayStation has a great line-up heading towards us. The following games are the ones I’m really looking forward to!
November is near and it brings a lot of great games to look forward to! Here are the most anticipated ones.
A new CTB review! No bullsh*t, but to the point. Here we go!
Rocket League is an entertaining game. It requires some getting into, but after a few matches, you have the feel and can estimate where the ball lands and have a feel for the field. There are multiple modi, be them offline or online. You can play in duels (1 vs 1), doubles (2 vs 2), 3 vs 3, or 4 vs 4 (that one being insane, as there are eight cars chasing a ball). Offline has an exhibition mode and a season mode which allow you to start your dream as a Rocket League pro. Online has unranked and ranked matches, the ranked matches great for practicing against other players, generally a lot better than the AI. As soon as you start playing ranked matches, you have to brace yourself, because there are a lot of good players out there, but becoming better means you should have less trouble with owning them (you’ll even start trying tricks). Having a good, communicating team helps as well. The game also lets you customize your cars with different colours, stickers, wheels, boost types, and even hats and antennas (driving around with a sombrero and a flag is pretty funny). Besides these options, you can also view your (in-depth) stats and the stats of your friends. I often had matchmaking, lag, and connectivity problems, but with some patience, that’s okay. You’ll have the game up and running and joined a match rather fast, so that adds to the fun. I can be fanatical, which sometimes caused anger and irritation when I was losing (which didn’t happen very often, of course..) but that’s a personal issue. Playing with friends is great fun, especially when everybody wants to win. Overall a great game, but it does get a little boring when you’ve played multiple matches, even though there are enough different game types.
+ Lots of fun because it’s simple and gameplay is fast
+ Multiple game types, offline and online
+ High replay value, stays fun
– Connectivity issues
– Having a bad, not communicating team influences the whole game
– Gets boring after playing multiple matches
Rocket Leagues scores a..
