What We’re Playing – August 2017

What We're Playing August 2017

What We’re Playing shares our most-played games for the previous weeks. Look to this monthly entry for simple recommendations.

What Dad is Playing:

Friday the 13th: The Game: I’ve stopped playing as Jason and stopped playing alone. My wife and I still play this 3-4 times per week, but we try to be counsellors only.

Dead by Daylight: We picked this up a couple of weeks ago and I can’t get enough. I play killer alone (I prefer it over Jason in F13) and play survivor with my wife.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age: I played this back on PS2 but never beat the game. I’ve restarted twice thanks to the new job system that I don’t like, but I’m still enjoying myself.

The Elder Scrolls Online: After realizing that I didn’t enjoy the new class, I thought I’d start this up again to play a sorcerer once more. I still have a few months of ESO Plus to use up before my time with ESO is over.

What the 7-year Old is Playing:

Crossout: He’s still playing Crossout for half of his game time every week. Maybe a little more. He got his first purples, two armored tracks, and he’s now grinding towards a third.

Splatoon 2: I know, it’s a PlayStation Site. What’s a Switch game doing here? When Nintendo does something as awesome as Splatoon, they deserve recognition. The game’s amazing, and both kids love it.

What the 3-year Old is Playing:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan: Big brother doesn’t play with him anymore, but he just can’t get enough TMNT. He plays multiplayer by himself so he can “eat pizza” and stays locked to only one character.

Splatoon 2: Never thought I’d see the day that he stopped playing Injustice 2, but Splatoon 2 was the kick he needed. We have two PS4s and one Switch. They argue over who gets to play Switch. All the time.
