Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 502 1

The big new release this weekend is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but it feels like interest in the franchise is at an all-time low, doesn’t it? That doesn’t exactly mean the title will be flop – far from it – but we’re not exactly expecting to see it pop up too frequently in this week’s WAYP.

Aaron Bayne

I'll be continuing on with Control this weekend, with some hellish slaying on the side in Diablo IV.

Jade Sayers

This weekend I will be playing copious amounts of Marvel's Spider-Man 2. I’ve got way too distracted by side missions and clearing up each district so I’m determined to focus on the main missions. We’ll see how that goes though!

Jaimie Ditchfield

This weekend will see me returning to Japan in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name. As someone who has explored Kiryu's adventures multiple times in the past, this one has me excited, and I can't wait to try the trial version of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth once I hit the credits.

Jamie O'Neill

Following buying Revita as an Essential Picks bargain blaster last weekend, I'll take a swing at another 2023 2D platformer (£8.39 deal), Bat Boy, which has souped up 8-bit graphics that have become popular in modern retro games.

Khayl Adam

Once again I'm on the review train, after wrapping that up I’m hoping to get a bit further into Alan Wake 2. I'm constantly finding myself lost and stuck on puzzles, and only playing for an hour or so a night hasn’t been ideal, but the story is really starting to pick up now!

Sammy Barker

I still technically don't have access to a television, so it'll be more mobile games for me this weekend. I'll probably continue trying to catch up in Genshin Impact.

Scott McCrae

I'm in the home stretch of review season now, where I'll finally be able to talk about what I'm playing again next week! Aside from that, just more The Binding of Isaac Repentance.

Robert Ramsey

I'll be giving the Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising beta a shot while reviewing a couple of very anime games that I can't talk about just yet. Nothing like a big weeb weekend!

So, that's what we're playing this weekend, but what about the rest of you. As always, let us know in the comments section below.
