Well, this is it, then: the start of silly season. You better hope your backlog has been appropriately cleared, because there are a lot of games coming out over the next eight weeks, and regardless of which ones you choose, you’re going to need a lot of free time to play them all.

I’ll be patiently waiting for the Gran Turismo Sport demo to start by continuing my careers in MLB The Show 17, FIFA 17, and… Madden NFL 18. That’s right, I’ve actually upgraded one of my sports games since last WAYP, so I’m looking forward to correcting the New York Giants’ woeful form by playing on Rookie.

What a packed weekend of gaming this could turn out to be. I'll be diving into a number of different titles time permitting, including Middle-earth: Shadow of War, FIFA 18, and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. As if that wasn't enough, Gundam Versus and Battle Chasers: Nightwar are also on the agenda. This year really has been crazy for good games, hasn't it? RPGs, football, and Gundam all in one weekend, what more could I ask for?

This weekend I'm still in the depths of despair as I aim to finish of Danganronpa V3. I have a lot of theories about where it's going, so I'm interested to see if I'm right. My predictions so far are about 0 for 6 so I'm not holding my breath.

I'll be donning an eye patch and crawling around in the arid plains of Afghanistan as I take Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for a spin. Having played practically zero Metal Gear Solid, I'm not expecting to understand what's going on. I'm simply in for some stealthy action and Japanese quirkiness.

So it's October again, and that means two things: World Series and Hallowe'en. So I will be playing MLB The Show 17 and Castlevania Bloodlines to get into the October mood.
