OnlySP Week in Review + Giveaway – May 3rd

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for our Week in Review! A trend we began last week was giving out a free game for your participation in our Week in Review and that will continue on thanks to your participation last week. This week, we’re giving you a chance to win an advanced copy of Lemma, an upcoming first person parkour puzzle game releasing on May 12th. Justin provided a First Look video for the game here, so be sure to check it out and enter in the Raffle Copter widget below for a chance to win!

OnlySP Update

I’ve finally finished my Sophomore semester of college and boy has it gone by fast! I really don’t feel ready to be a Junior in college already, but I guess I don’t really have a choice do I? I’ve also just changed my major from Business Management and Administration to Multimedia Journalism, so I’ll be learning a whole lot more about what I’ve been doing for the past six years now and I’m really excited about it.

With a Mutlimedia Journalism major, I won’t be just learning about writing, but also video content production, newspaper/ magazine editing skills and even some broadcasting skills, so that’s pretty exciting for me. I’m interested to see where this new direction takes me, and if its increases my enjoyment in what I’ve been practicing for the better part of six years now.

It’s pretty amazing to go back and read articles that I wrote when I first started out, to what I’m able to write now. I’m not perfect by any means, but if you saw my writing from my days back at TitanReviews, you’d have a good laugh. I’d share it here for you to see for yourself, but I’ll save myself the embarrassment.

In terms of what’s been going on with OnlySP this past week, not much. We just finished up a site meeting which was very productive in setting up the Summer Giveaway event and another project we have in the works that we can’t talk about yet. This week, however, will be filled with content for you to check out. Our interviews are returning this month, and tomorrow (Monday) we’ll be revealing the first entry for May. We have an interview scheduled for every week this month, with most of June already filled up as well. We should have the first real details on quite a few of these titles and if you ask me, they’re all very interesting games you might not have heard about yet.

We’re also sending two writers (Tripp and Cedric), maybe three (Nick P), to E3 2015 this June, so planning is underway for their coverage as well. While we sent someone to E3 the first year the site was active, it wasn’t particularly planned out and that writer’s coverage was severely lacking when they returned. That won’t happen this year.

Personal Gaming Update

As most of you know, I was pretty busy with finishing up my semester for school over the past week and preparing to move into my new living location, so I haven’t had much time to play my huge backlog of video games. With the little amount of time I did have, I have begun my playthrough of Sunset Overdrive. I love the look of the game, and the characters, but I’ve found the gameplay a little repetitive and boring. I’m not too far into the game yet, but I’m not as impressed and engaged with it as many other fans were. Maybe it’s just not my style of game anymore.

I’ve just ordered a 15ft HDMI cable so I can connect my computer to my TV in my room and use Steam’s Big Picture mode. I’m not a big keyboard and mouse player, so I’ve found a way to connect my PS4 controller to my computer and play games that way. Once I have the cable installed I plan to begin a playthrough of The Banner Saga and Republique Remastered. I also dabbled with some Homeworld this week and I love the heck out of it. I’m not sure how I never played the game before now, but boy did I miss out on a game that I would have been too addicted to when I was younger…maybe it’s a good thing I never played it.

We still don’t have a review copy of The Witcher 3, and according to our PR rep, we, and every other site that doesn’t have a debug PS4 unit, will not have a code until “just before” the launch of The Witcher 3. Having said that, don’t expect us to have a full review of the game up on release day. We will be uploading plenty of gameplay footage to the Youtube channel for you to check out and providing First Impressions on the game in written form.

If you haven’t check out our streaming schedule, Justin will also be livestreaming The Witcher 2 on the 14th of May and will continue to livestream the game until he completes it. We’ll see what we can do in terms of giveaway supplies for that event, but I’m not making any promises.

  1. College seems to be just as fun as it is stressful, but it’s good to hear that you’re doing a decent job of balancing OnlySP with college.

    1. Haha balancing is half the job ;P

  2. Nick, congrats on doing so well with OSP. I remember when there were only a small handful of us and now you’ve grown much larger. People are dying for games that are only single player and you’re filling that need by giving us the information that is tough to find anywhere else.
    I am looking forward to The Witcher 3 this month and am staying busy with State of Decay for the XBO.

  3. Quite a few of us are grabbing Witcher 3 on launch. I myself have the full collector’s edition for PC arriving on launch day. So, I’m sure we will have footage and thoughts from multiple angles on that one.

  4. I have Witcher 3 preordered and ready to go!

    But otherwise have been busy writing, doing some uni work when I get the chance and playing the lovely ‘Life is Strange’, which is a contender for my game of the year so far. Just picked up the new Assassin’s Creed China as well so looking forward to playing through that!

  5. Played Resident Evil: Revelations 2 split screen with my friend and I was kind of disappointed with a few things in the game. The first thing I didn’t like was large black borders on the sides of the screen while playing split screen co-op. This was also present in RE5. Second thing was that achievements wouldn’t unlock for player two.
    You mentioned a long HDMI cable for your computer, that reminds me that I need to get an adapter for my PS4 so I can use my PC monitor because it doesn’t have an HDMI port, but I also need something for my sound.
    I would like to get The Witcher 3 for PC, but I’m pretty sure my PC couldn’t handle it, so maybe PS4 or XB1. I guess I’ll wait for the reviews to come in before getting it, but I’m sure it’s going to be a masterpiece. :P

    1. I’m right there with you, my PC isn’t up to something like the witcher. I’ll likely get it on PS4, but part of me always wants to hold out for a while and play it when my PC has been upgraded :-)

    2. To use my monitor as a screen for my PS4 I bought an HDMI to VGA converter. You can find a little plug in adapter on Amazon for as little as 3 bucks.

  6. My week this week I started Dragon Age Origins (backlog game, but wanted to fill in my “Dragon Age Tapestry” before diving into Inquisition), and I’m putting in some time with Freedom Wars on my vita. I want to play Shovel Knight next, but I try my best to practice gaming bigamy so as to not forget what I’m doing and drop good games. :-)
