WAYP What Are You Playing 1

We truly are in the doldrums, folks, because this week was a real stinker of nothingness for virtually the entire gaming industry. Yes, we got the shock news that Embracer has acquired Square Enix's western studios first thing on Monday, but beyond that... Nada. Let's play some games, eh?

I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to games and try things I'd never usually play. That quest has brought me, somehow, to Kingdom Hearts 3. The story's an absolute stinker, but so much of the gameplay is surprisingly superb.

I did indeed finish Lost in Random last weekend (good game, I recommend it), so now I'm making my third attempt at trying to get into Hollow Knight. Wish me luck!

After an ungodly grind I am finally free from the additive grips of the Apex Legends Season 12 Battle Pass — ready to start it all again this coming Tuesday. However, for the weekend, I’ll likely try and revive my Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut playthrough, which means walking through cinematic vistas slowly and using photo mode a whole lot.

With never my mind on where I was, or what I was doing, I'll cast my thoughts back to the N64 in 1999 via the PS4 remaster of Star Wars Episode I: Racer, even though it's no longer May the Fourth.

Quite an eclectic selection this week, presumably because we're all digging into our backlogs a bit right now. What are you playing this weekend? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
