What Are You Playing This Weekend

Wow, it's crazy to think that we're closing in on Issue 500 (!) of our What Are You Playing This Weekend? series. Well, we say that, but then you Google how many weeks are in a year, and it turns out that 40 weeks equates to over nine whole months. So, in reality, we're not that close at all.

Still, it'll be something to celebrate, and there are plenty of games releasing in the meantime!

I'm still coming down off reviewing both Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, so I think I'll relax with a bit more of The Witcher 3 over the weekend. I'm really looking forward to playing the absolutely incredible Hearts of Stone expansion again.

I'm begrudgingly trying to muster up the courage to continue on with Death Stranding this weekend. But with Lightfall just over a month away, the distant planets of Destiny 2 are seeming more and more appealing.

Oh no! Have we lost Sammy to Genshin Impact? I haven’t gone that rabbit hole yet, but I am spiralling down into the fighting genre. I still can’t land a decent combo to save my controller from button smashing but I am going to give the Breakers Collection a go.

Thanks to 75% off M2's PS4 Namco Museum Archives Vol 2 in last week's PS Store January Sale, I'm playing NES ports of Pac-Land and Rolling Thunder. Also, that man is playing Galaga. Thought we wouldn't notice, but we did.

After a mishap revolving around losing a charger last week, I popped in my unopened copy of Gran Turismo 7 that's been sitting here since August. Safe to say I'm now obsessed with the high stakes racing and low stakes sitting in a café and reading about the world's first cloned horse.

Otherwise, I'm playing something for review this weekend that's hush-hush.

We've had our say, so now it's your turn. As always, tell us all about your weekend gaming plans in the comments section below.
