Thumbstick Tuesday

Thumbstick Tuesday – 22nd November 2022

Welcome to our Thumbstick Tuesday on 22nd November 2022. How was your week?

Again this week we’ve been playing a good variety of games. Ben has been piling hours into Football Manager 23, Brian cleared Strider on the PS4, and Martin has mostly played Ghostwire Tokyo.

We’re also adding something new this week thanks to a suggestion from Brian. We’re going to be adding “Games we’ve purchased” into this article each week.

What have you been playing? Let us know in the comments section.

Ben

Ben has been a bit quiet with the variety of games this week although he managed to pump a ton of hours into FM23.

  • Played
    • PC
      • Football Manager 2023
    • Nintendo Switch
      • Pokémon Violet
  • Purchased
    • Nintendo Switch
      • Pokémon Violet

Ben’s highlight this week is Pokémon Violet which is the latest in the Pokémon series of games.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are the first open-world RPGs in the Pokémon series. As you enjoy the hallmarks of the series—meeting, teaming up with, battling, training, and trading Pokémon—you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a newly evolved adventure.

 

Brian

Brian has played a decent variety of games this week, as well as bought a few new ones for his collection including a classic from the Philips CD-i!

Brian’s highlight this week is starting The Chant on PS5. We were kindly given a key for this for review so that is currently in the works.

A single-player, third person horror action-adventure game set on a remote spiritual island retreat. To survive you must craft, fight, and escape the psychedelic horrors set loose when a spiritual ritual goes wrong and awakens a dimension of cosmic terror.

 

Martin

This week Martin mostly played Ghostwire: Tokyo on his PC and Steam Deck. Of course, it wouldn’t be Martin without playing something else.

Martin’s highlight this week is Ghostwire: Tokyo. It’s a fairly new game that was developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda.

Tokyo’s population has vanished, and deadly supernatural forces prowl the streets. Use an arsenal of elemental abilities to unravel the truth behind the disappearance and save Tokyo.
