Did’ya miss me?! It’s been several weeks since I’ve had the honour of hosting WAYP, but we’re still 461 issues deep, and we haven’t missed a week. Thanks for deputising, Ramsey-san. Shall we get on with it, then?

I'll probably play some gacha games on mobile this weekend, because I've turned into a right scumbag.

Now that the Forspoken review is all wrapped up, I think it's time to unwind with some Trails of Cold Steel II. The plan was to replay the whole series before Trails into Reverie arrives in the summer, but 2023's insane release schedule is going to make that very difficult.

In addition to a game I'm playing for review, I'll be looking to continue my playthrough of Dragon Quest XI S. To my surprise, I'm enjoying it a lot. Japanese RPGs usually do nothing for me, but this one is really hitting the spot at the moment.

This weekend, I'll be locking and loading as I take on literally thousands of "zekes" in World War Z. This is a super simple game, but I can't emphasise enough the satisfaction of tackling a wave of manic zombies, especially now with the new Horde Mode XL on PS5.
Graham Banas, Reviewer
One of my all-time favorite games just so happens to have just received a remake. So yeah, I'll be playing Dead Space basically all weekend without pause. I've been waiting for this one for a long time!

Considering I loved JoyMasher's Blazing Chrome, and that Sammy described Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider as "a white-knuckle mix of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master on SEGA Genesis and Mega Man X on the Super Nintendo", I don't know why it took me 16 days to buy this early 2023 gem. I've ninja-mended my tardiness now.
Scott McCrae, Reviewer
I won't be on the PlayStation this weekend. The horror! Outside of a review I'm currently working on, my mind is occupied by Tango Gameworks' new game Hi-Fi Rush (a game which seems designed with my tastes in mind) as well as trying out GoldenEye 007 to see what the fuss is all about.
Simon Fitzgerald, Reviewer
After finishing up Ghostwire Tokyo this week, I’ll be switching things up this weekend by jumping into Life Is Strange: True Colors. I’ve played Life Is Strange and Before the Storm and really enjoyed both so I’m hoping this will be more of the same.
It turns out that Ramsey isn't the only editor who gets a big response to WAYP, as this is yet another meaty week for our regular feature. But what are you playing? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
