How the heck does Sammy come up with a new intro for these articles every week? Your humble and temporary host has only penned these talking points a handful of times and he's already out of ideas. If Overlord Barker was here he'd probably just write something about tennis, so we may as well run with that.

So... That tennis, eh? Strawberries and cream and... Annoyingly posh people. Why do the players have to grunt like that? Why do they need a child to bring them a towel every 20 seconds? What a dumb sport.

Who needs Wimbledon when you've got Evo 2017? I'll be watching the world's best Tekken and Street Fighter players batter each other this weekend, all while mindlessly slaughtering enemies in Diablo III and grinding for precious license points in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

With the first player-run event for the PS4 version of Elite Dangerous kicking off over the weekend, I’ve spent the past week kitting out my Cobra MKIII ready for Deep Recon X’s ‘A Grand Day Out’. With over 11 million credits dropped on upgrades for my ship, I’ll be heading out with other players on a multi-week cruise to take in various galactic tourist sites.

When I’m not spending hours jumping through hyperspace. I’ll be alternating between playing SMITE and watching it, as I cheer on Obey Alliance in the SMITE Summer Finals.

I'm determined that this weekend will be the one where I dodge roll back into Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's been far, far too long. I must also remember to avoid photo mode, or I'll make no progress at all (but will have some lovely landscape shots).

So not much for me this weekend as I am busy packing up for a vacation this week.  I might sneak a few rounds of Call of Duty Black Ops III though.


With our plans out of the way, it's your turn. As always, let us know what you plan on playing this weekend in the comments section below.
