It’s the penultimate weekend in July before the August apocalypse arrives. Seriously, if you thought that you were going to have another month to clear your backlog, then think again – the next month is looking stacked. You may want to polish up any leftovers while you still have the chance.

I’m on the biggest PlayStation VR binge I’ve been on since the headset launched. If you’re not paying attention and think Sony’s leaving its headset to wither and die without software support, then you’re dead wrong. There’s a ridiculous amount of content coming out on this thing at the moment.

I've got a lot of gaming to get through this weekend. First up, I'm still in the process of polishing off Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. Next, I'm just a tiny bit addicted to that Happy Dungeons beta. On top of that, I've got the urge to work through some more Diablo III with my very enjoyable Necromancer. And, as if all that wasn't enough, I bought Mad Max in the latest PlayStation Store sale and I'm eager to see whether it is actually as good as people say it is. I'm never going to play all of this, am I?

After a bit of downtime between reviews, I'm currently in the process of tackling two games, one of which is Supergiant's Pyre, which is a game I've been anxiously awaiting since they announced it. Suffice it to say, it's going to be a great weekend for gaming.

This weekend it'll mainly be Watch Dogs 2 for me, as I explore more outlandish things to do in San Francisco. I'll also intersperse that with some LIMBO and some Fez, as I'm looking to clear my backlog while the summer games drought goes on.

Now that I've finally finished Horizon: Zero Dawn, my attention has turned to the PlayStation Store. I have several titles sitting in my wish list, such as Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Edith Finch, and Thumper, all of them worthy of my attention. I will likely spend my weekend labouring over this decision, and end up buying nothing.
