Tom S and Marsh discuss the underwhelming goon-kicking reward loop of Dying Light 2, the high-calibre clobbering but confusing structure of Sifu, and the many ways of being stuck in Expeditions: Rome.

  • Dying Light 2: Staaaaaay Human is an expansive parkour game with comically wonko interpersonal drama and surprisingly crap combat.
  • Hybrid tactics/strategy RPG Expeditions: Rome is many games in one, and some are good!
  • Not actually going to link the studio’s new endeavour, because blockchain is for chumps.
  • Kung-fu roguelike Sifu brilliantly captures the choreographed man-punching of martial arts movies. More will be said upon this matter in due course!
  • If you want to be reminded why the past is bad and should be left alone: Bloodborne PSX is a supremely impressive attempt to recreate Bloodborne within the limitations of old hardware that also make it extraordinarily annoying to experience.
