There’s been a small break in the release schedule since Red Dead Redemption 2 released, allowing us all to conquer the Wild West as competent cowboy Arthur Morgan. And while Spyro: Reignited Trilogy and Fallout 76 linger tantalisingly on the horizon, you’ve still got a little more time to embed yourself in Saint Denis and its surroundings.

Yeah, more Red Dead Redemption 2 for me. I'm still barely halfway, even though I feel like I've been playing for an eternity now. I'm loving every minute, though – this is a wonderful game.

I need to completely finish Dragon Quest XI before it gets swallowed up by the backlog void. I was so close to doing everything there is to do, but all those massive open world games got in the way. I'm looking forward to getting back to it, though – I think Dragon Quest may still be my personal favourite game of the year.

The dream is to go big on Red Dead Redemption 2 this weekend, with as much of my spare time spent with Arthur Morgan as possible. Having said that, it'll be hard for me to ignore the glitz and glamour of Tetris Effect, a game I'm equally itching to play. A main course of shootouts and riding across the American plains with a side dish of dropping rhythmically charged glitter-blocks sounds ideal.

While I assume everyone is still on the Red Dead train, I am on a Final Fantasy Frenzy, who knows why. Therefore, after work, I will be flip-flopping between World of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy 8, where we all know the real meat does not lie in the combat nor Squall’s endless ellipsis, but Triple Triad!

As I surpass a grand total of 100 hours spent with Red Dead Redemption 2, it feels like the story is finally beginning to wind down. But, while the story may almost be over, my total progress is sitting at a paltry 54 per cent. This weekend I'll be working on getting that number as high as possible before the Spyro Reignited Trilogy releases next week.

With Tetris Effect in the process of installing this very moment, I plan to spend a lot of time with that game for the weekend, as I've been hotly anticipating it for quite some time now. I'll also likely spend some time with Call of Duty and take advantage of the weekend event for that. Beyond that who knows. Maybe some hockey?

I'm going to read the retro sections in the final issues of both GamesMaster and gamesTM. After that I'll play games relating to features like The Retro Guide to Scrolling Beat-'Em-Ups and Game Changers: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, particularly as a thank you to gamesTM for all 206 entertaining and informative magazines in my collection.

I'll once again be trucking my way through Red Dead Redemption 2 this weekend. I've only just reached the game's halfway mark in Chapter 4, so I've still got a ridiculous amount of stuff left to do. Maybe I'll actually get around to playing another game next year.

This week has consisted mostly of World of Final Fantasy on PS4 following the Maxima upgrade. It’s aided in giving an already commendable game even more of an edge. That aside I’ve merely hopped between ARK and Steins;Gate 0. Been too busy revelling in the excitement the numerous big releases of next week has wrought.

I’m now officially 50 per cent through Red Dead Redemption 2 and still loving every second, between my time in the Wild West though I’ve been playing Moonlighter, which is a charming and unique take on the action adventure genre.

Since for the next few weeks I will be out of town my Nintendo Switch will be getting a lot of play time. With the likes of Diablo III, Mutant Football League Dynasty Edition, and Arena of Valor at least I will be getting some gaming in.
