Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 15
Posted by Sammy Barker
Let the cops chase us around
Time flies when you’re having fun. It doesn’t feel like a day since we started our ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ series, but it’s been almost eight months. While the past few editions have been a teensy bit slow due to the sunny summer weeks, though, we suspect that proceedings are about to get a smidgen more exciting, as the release calendar begins to refill with hotly anticipated games. Let's get started, shall we?

What am I playing this weekend? I suppose I can say that Ellen Page is in it, but I should probably stop before I get gagged by Sony’s very best ninjas. Elsewhere, I’m quite curious about that Flashback remake, but I’m not expecting it to be very good. We’ll see...

I've fallen passionately in love with Dragon's Crown and its stunning art direction, so I'll be spending my weekend wrapped in its silky embrace. When I'm not delving into the depths of picturesque dungeons, I'll be trying to advance through Grand Theft Auto Online, although I'm a little bit disappointed by the lack of co-op content that's available at launch.

With some patience, I was eventually able to get some time with Grand Theft Auto Online the other night, and it was fantastic fun. If the servers hold, that'll be my obsession over the weekend.
Ben Potter, Video Editor
I’ll probably be spending time with Grand Theft Auto Online's character creation suite this weekend, as I'm consistently kicked back to single player and my character deleted. Here's hoping that the servers are a little more stable this weekend.

I'm taking a leisurely 500 mile round-trip drive to Dorset this weekend, so it's portable gaming at service stations all the way for me. Thank goodness for PSone games on the PlayStation Vita, because I'll happily reminisce about the heyday glory period of Psygnosis, and take a break from the M5 by zipping around steeply banked tracks in anti-gravity WipEout races. Roads? Where we're going, we don't need flat, straight roads.

My aim for this weekend is to bite off a large portion of Dishonored as a ninja. That all-stealth Trophy would look good in my digital cabinet, so I’m steeling myself for a torrent of rage quits as I slowly traipse through Dunwall.

I didn't manage to get much time to play any games this week, so I'm hoping to get reacquainted with Grand Theft Auto V over the coming days. I've currently completed 30 per cent of the campaign, but, to be honest, I enjoy exploring the streets more than the missions.
