We’re in the thick of it now. There’s practically a major new game release every week through until the holidays, so you better be prepared for the onslaught – and the insane expenditure, of course. Much of our team is on assignment at the moment, and if they’re not, you can guarantee they're doing thumb exercises ahead of the workout that's about to come.

I’ll putting my foot down in Gran Turismo Sport all weekend, as I work my way closer to a full review. I’ve no idea how some sites managed to score it so quickly – actually I do, but I’ll remain professional and refrain from comment.

There are a lot of good games I'd like to play this weekend, but my duties as a Professional Video Game Critic demand that I get stuck into ELEX, which is... Well, it's not great. And by not great, I mean it's the jankiest mess that I've slogged through in a long time.

After a stretch of playing quite a lot less than I'd like, I think I wanna put some time aside this weekend to sit down with Rainbow Six: Siege again. Sprinkle in some spooky movies and apple cider, and it makes for the perfect fall.

I’ve been trying to get to grips with Gran Turismo Sport over the last couple of days; I’m not usually one for online play, so this has come as a bit of a learning curve. Other than that, I might finally find some time to start the story mode of FIFA 18

With my PlayStation VR arriving just yesterday, I'll be leaving this reality for the virtual one all weekend. PlayStation VR Worlds, Gran Turismo Sport, Batman: Arkham VR, and Rez Infinite are the first games on the agenda. Maybe Middle-earth: Shadow of War or South Park: The Stick of Truth will get a look in at some point – maybe when I come back down to Earth?

This weekend will be one fraught with conflict as I face off against a swathe of heroic combatants to bring you the Push Square verdict on Brawlhalla. Once I’ve had my fill of free-to-play fisticuffs, I’ll hunker down to continue my slow and haphazard play through of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

So since October is the month of Hallowe'en, I will be getting into the mood by playing Resident Evil 4 on the Wii which I think is the best version [It is! - Ed], as well as some Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the PSone.


What will be keeping your fingers busy this weekend? Are you playing South Park? Are you awaiting Assassin's Creed? Or are you just damn well working through that backlog again? Let us know below.
