The weekend is finally here, and we at MenStuff have a duty to suggest some video game indulgence – so we’ve picked three standout titles that are worth checking out if you’re in for some couch-action to round-off your week.
THE LAST OF US: REMASTERED (PS4)
The undisputed Game of the Year for 2013 has been remastered and touched-up during its jump from the PS3 to the PS4, and for the fact that you’re given the chance to play an enhanced version of a game touted as one of the best video games ever made, it’s a pretty damn safe bet to pick up The Last of Us Remastered.
The world of The Last of Us sees a viral outbreak that has caused modern society to become an overgrown mess, as nature reclaims the land and civilisation has fallen to desperation. Players will take on the role of Joel, as he has to escort a young girl named Ellie to a particular quarantined zone, using stealth, hand-to-hand combat and firearms to fight through the zombie-like creatures and hostile humans that await.
SNIPER ELITE 3
Sniper Elite 3 is set several years prior to the events of Sniper Elite V2, following the exploits of Office of Strategic Services officer Karl Fairburne as he participates in the North African conflict during World War II, in which he learns of a secret wonder weapon programme by the Nazi forces.
Like its predecessor, Sniper Elite 3 requires you to stealth your way through missions, picking off enemies and avoiding being spotted. The ultra-violent X-ray bullet-cam returns, showing you your shots tearing through your enemy’s flesh and smashing their bones.
The fan-favourite racing franchise of GRID has often fallen into the background behind the bigger names in the genre, namely, Gran Turismo and Forza, but GRID has something special about it that has generated a cult-like following.
GRID Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game – focusing on touring cars and street racing with realistic handling and a solid sense of speed.
The game also features the return of in-car view that was removed from Grid 2 and changed handling with 100 routes across 22 locations
