Weekly Round-Up Wednesday - 23rd November 2022

I've just started to check out a point 'n' click adventure called Kapia

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Wednesday to update readers on what I've been playing during the week (this also includes games on my "Pile of Shame"). The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Battlefield 2042

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 100%

Season 3 has just been released but I haven't had a chance to play it yet. Not sure what to think about them introducing a bunch of railguns to the game or the smart shotgun but hopefully they're not too OP (they definitely sound like it). I'm definitely getting comfortable with using Irish though as he's such a good specialist on Breakthrough. The ability to stop grenades from blowing up around you is a lifesaver, especially on Breakthrough maps where chokepoints are more pronounced than they are on Conquest maps. Really good on offense when capping a point with lots of smoke grenades or on defence.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 100%

I've been playing a bit of Civ VI recently. I haven't actually played as one of the new leaders as part of the recently released Leader Pass but I'm currently playing a team game with my wife against Nzinga Mbande of Kongo and we're struggling to keep up with the opposing civs although we're currently doing alright in terms of Diplomatic Victory. I picked Random Leader and ended up with the Ottomans which is definitely not a civ that I'd normally pick (since they favour Domination victories). However, just before we finished our most recent session, the AI decided to declare war so I'm going to give it my best shot to take over Brazil's capital.

I have generously received a review key for a point 'n' click adventure called Kapia from developers 2FOR2 (thanks again for providing the key). I've only had a quick look at the game so far and it looks promising. While I think the bloom is a bit overdone (at least in this first room), the graphics are quite gorgeous and I love the retrofuturistic styling that has been applied to everything. The camera angles take a bit of getting used to as well as it sometimes shifts when you least expect it and I'm still getting used to the fact there is no ability to manually save the game (it seems to automatically do so, although there are obviously checkpoints as when I returned to the game after quitting, it didn't save right after the last action I made).

The story is intriguing though and I'm keen to learn more about this world. Stay tuned and hopefully I can get a review out in the near future.
