The latest boxed video game software charts have come through for the largest gaming market in Europe, the United Kingdom. There were a few new entries this week in the top ten and they are Dead Island 2 which entered at No.1, Minecraft Legends which is at No.2, and Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp at No.3. Interestingly, Minecraft Legends sold the most amount of boxed copies on the Nintendo Switch family of systems, shifting 76% of copies on the platform, though it should be noted it is also on Game Pass. Here’s the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending 22nd April, 2023:
“Just missing out on second place is Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp on Nintendo Switch (although the game is No.2 in the Single Format Charts). This game was destined to be a tough sell. It’s the first game in the series for 15 years. It was initially due early last year, but was postponed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. When it finally has arrived, it’s launched into a tough market, and just a few weeks before the big new Nintendo game (The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom). As a result, it’s no surprise it hasn’t done huge figures, but it has found an audience following positive reviews last week.”Games Industry

Dead Island 2 is a good game, it’s just not very lengthy. The campaign has 26 missions, im on 22 and it just released Friday. I hope they increase the level cap with an expansion or a free update, because level 30 seems kinda low for a game with Rpg elements. Even the rare or superior weapons don’t have low RNG, i get top tier weapons really easy and end up scraping them for materials because the inventory and stash is very small when you consider how many loot drops their are.
I’ve seen YouTube tutorials for affective exp and money exploits, what’s the point when even playing naturally it’s not even difficult. It has no difficulty, but unless the nerf the enemy mobs Dead Island 2 is a cakewalk.
There are people who have a life and don’t play a game 24/7. For those players it takes half a year to finish the game.
