While the PC version of Yakuza 0 took up the majority of my month, I did find time to investigate a couple of games with the potential to become major timesinks in the not-too-distant future. The first is Quake Champions, id’s attempt to dress up an old-school arena shooter in a more modern hero shooter’s clothes.
I’m enjoying it a lot. Despite offering different characters with unique skills and stats, this is still an arena shooter at its core. You speed around maps, picking up weapons, ammo, and armor, and blasting people to death in frantic firefights.
The second is Total War: Warhammer, which I’ve been meaning to play for years. I’ve started a campaign as the Dwarfs, and it’s been enjoyably relaxing, although my kingdom is already overspending and on the verge of a riot.
