Hello everyone, it has been awhile.
The team here at OnlySP has been working extremely hard over the past few weeks to get this restructure plan for the site up and running, and I have to say, I’m mightly impressed with what we’ve been pumping out. Our Trello board is filled with pending articles for you to read, something I haven’t seen in a while and we’ve got a ton of new games to cover over the next few weeks that you’ll see reviews and expanded coverage for.
For the first time in a long time, I’m actually really excited for the future of OnlySP and where we are headed. The content that I’m reading is interesting and fun to read, and our hope is that you all find it interesting as well. To start off the month today, we’ve already shared our top 10 single player games to look out for this month and a narrative analysis for Event. We’ve got a lot more content to share with you at the start of this month, including a narrative analysis on Virginia, editorials about some of this year’s hottest games, a massive new interview for The Soul Keeper and it’s prequel VR game, and a slew of reviews.
We’re still working out more of our expanded coverage on the games we are playing so give us some time to really find our groove there, and of course, if you have something you’d like to see covered, please feel free to email us or leave a comment anywhere on the site. If you want our opinion on something in a game that you’ve recently played, let us know because we’d love to talk to you about it.
I can’t say too much more about what we have planned for the next few weeks, but we think you’ll like what we’ve cooked up.
PERSONAL GAMING UPDATE
It has been a rather busy start to the semester for me this year at college. I’ve already had a few exams, written a 25 page paper for a website analysis, working on a website for a professor, joined a bowling league and for the third year in a row I’ve put together an Italian dinner fundraiser for my fraternity here on campus. That’s not to mention how much time I’ve been spending on the site.
As you’ve probably already guessed, yes, I’m still playing a lot of Rainbow Six Siege. My friend and I religiously play the game during weeknights once we’ve completed all of our school work. I seriously recommend you try it out if you haven’t yet, just make sure you have friends to play with. Seriously, no match is ever the same and it’s one of the most intense FPS games I’ve ever played. Ubisoft has been doing an adamant job supporting the game, and I’m really interested to see where they take the game next after the last expansion launches later this year.
One of the most surprising things about the game, however, is its rising player counts. You don’t normally see a game (unless it’s Minecraft) continue to increase in player count so long after its release, but the word of mouth marketing for Siege is extremely strong and something I would love to investigate more.
Other than that, I played through a good bit for Forza Horizon 3 and very much enjoyed it. I’m a pretty big fan of racing games, but I haven’t played one in a while that really captured my attention. I was hoping the latest Need for Speed would do that, but the cheesy story cinematics killed it for me really quick. And, if there’s one racing series I’d really like to see return…that would be Midnight Club. I still remember just sitting on the menu screen in my room to listen to the game’s awesome menu music (video at the bottom for nostalgia reasons).
I also just received a review copy for a game that starts with a G and ends with a 4…so I’m going to go start that now. See you next week.
Yup, it’s time to do a giveaway again! We’re giving away a PC copy of Virginia this week. Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter, good luck!
