Thumbstick Tuesday – 7th March 2023

Welcome to our Thumbstick Tuesday on 7th March 2023. This week we welcome a new team member to the site. That team member is Ar! She has been writing for various sites for years and has worked with Ben, Brian, and Martin previously. She’s hopped on over to us to fill some of her spare time. So let’s welcome Ar in the comments or on our Twitter!

Martin’s highlight this week is Sons of the Forest. It’s the sequel to the absolutely cracking game titled The Forest. It is also just as fun!

Sent to find a missing billionaire on a remote island, you find yourself in a cannibal-infested hellscape.

Craft, build, and struggle to survive, alone or with friends, in this terrifying new open-world survival horror simulator.


Again, welcome to Ar to the team! Ar has been playing a new game that was recently released to Xbox Game Pass, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.

Of course Ar’s highlight this week is Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.

From the depths of darkness, a dragon soars. 184 AD, Later Han Dynasty China. The land is overcome by chaos and destruction. The imperial dynasty that prospered for many years is now about to collapse.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is a dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.
