While we here at Operation Rainfall love covering the latest in gaming news and sharing our reviews of titles new and classic, we also just enjoy playing games in our downtime. So with that, sit back, relax, and check out what the oprainfall gaming crew have been up to this week!
So this week I spent most of my time on review work and Final Fantasy XIV, but there have been a couple additions, as well. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is stupidly fun, especially as four-player couch co-op. I haven’t checked out online, nor have I been able to play the six-player co-op, but oh man, just playing with my family in the living room not only felt great, but was also incredibly nostalgic. I’ve always been a huge Turtles fan, and I loved the old arcade titles, as well as the home console versions (Turtles in Time is the best, I will take no questions). Shredder’s Revenge was like picking up the controller and jumping back in as if no time had passed. It’s such a great game. The modern updates with ninjutsu, the additional characters, and the music all make for an awesome gaming experience and I cannot emphasize enough how much everyone should give it a shot. If you have Xbox GamePass you can play it immediately without a financial commitment, but honestly this game is well-worth your money.
My other gaming venture this week has been getting back into the Dance Dance Revolution grind. After backing up our old hard drives and memory cards, we hooked up the PlayStation 2, loaded up the hard drive with just about every version of DDR we own, dragged out the Cobalt Flux, and just … danced. It’s been a really awesome experience getting back into a game I once played extensively back in high school and college. It’s also been a potent reminder that I’m not 20 anymore! But like Shredder’s Revenge, it’s also a huge nostalgia bomb. So many of these songs defined my life for almost a decade, and even though my footing isn’t remotely as strong as it once was, I am grateful for the chance to get back on the dance pad and give it a go. – Leah
