Sorry I didn’t get this posted up yesterday! In just over a week I’ll be bogged down with finals and finishing up my Sophomore semester of college and moving on from my business management degree to multimedia journalism. Figured I might as well get a degree in that, considering that’s what I’m already doing.

So last night when I was supposed to be writing this up for all you lovely readers, I was actually busy studying for once. Shocker, right?

Looking back at last week, it was a relatively quiet week for gaming announcements, that is, until Star Wars: Battlefront’s Friday reveal which has provoked a lot of discussion, cynicism and hype all at the same time.

Personally, I’m super excited to play DICE’s version of a modern Star Wars: Battlefront. I have my doubts about DICE, but in regards to being burned by Battlefield 3 and 4, I really didn’t lose too much faith in the company. There were a lot of problems with Battlefield 4, and it took the company much too long to fix them, but what’s there is a good game and I expect nothing less for Battlefront. I also don’t have time to wait around for a game to start working correctly, so if I can’t play it like it’s supposed to be played I move onto something else.

One of the perks of being a gaming journalist I suppose.

I can certainly understand many people’s concerns though, but as the developers have said, give them a chance to show you what they’ve been working on before making a final judgment. We as gamers fail to see the whole picture sometimes and pass judgment much too early without having a full set of details to work with.

As I mentioned in my latest short form editorial though, no space battles is kind of an interesting thing to not include in a Star Wars: Battlefront game. So if you want to be angry about something regarding Star Wars: Battlefront, there’s your gunpowder.

Anyways, in terms of gaming I was able to finish the main story-line for Dragon Age: Inquisition this weekend. Apparently I only had the final mission to do, and boy is that ending disappointing or what? Actually, in my honest opinion, the whole main story-line was really boring and I could have gone through the entire game without playing it and been fine. That has me a tad worried for whatever they’re working on for the next Mass Effect, but that’s a topic for a later time.

Other than that, I haven’t gotten much else done in terms of gaming. I’m currently in the process of reviewing a new trade-in service called LeapTrade so I will have a copy of Sunset Overdrive arriving later this week and will jump into that for the first time. Oh, and I have been playing Mortal Kombat X, but I’m a noob so there’s not much to talk about there. Game plays quite a bit differently than Killer Instinct on the Xbox One to say the least (lol).

So, single players, what have you been up to gaming wise over the last week? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to OnlySP for all the latest single player gaming news.

  1. I’m currently in a two week university break, so I am catching up on some oldies. WIth all the recent news in regards to the new Deus Ex, I decided to finally start Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Cyberpunk is one of my favourite genres and I have had Deus Ex sitting on my shelf for far to long! The graphics have not aged well, but the gameplay is still fun with varied routes to follow through a level. I have also being playing some Driveclub, which honestly, one of the least interesting racers I have ever played, absolutely no character or excitement, which racers such as Forza or Need For Speed have.

    In my spare time I have been working on a small indie studio, helping set it up as a business and organize some projects. It has been one of the most exciting things I have done recently, besides starting at OnlySP or course :P
