Comments

Nothing of any real interest for me this week. And the games on sale this week after last week's gargantuan sale pale by comparison. Thanks to it, I'm playing through the likes of Axiom Verge at the moment, which is a terrific game.

I'm in the same boat myself, a week ago I picked up Axiom Verge (and I couldn't agree more, it is a terrific game), L.A. Noire and RE Revelations 2 in that great sale so I think I'm good...for now...

This weekend I'll be finishing off Xenoblade 2, playing some Stardew, and hopefully finishing Mario + Rabbids.
