Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 513 1

The floodgates have opened, and some of 2024's major games have begun spilling out. We imagine a lot of people will be taking on Tekken 8 or sunning themselves in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth's Honolulu. Whether you're jumping into a brand new release or delving deep into the backlog, there's no shortage of games. Here's what the team is up to this time.

Aaron Bayne

A new weekend, a new season of Diablo IV. I'll be grinding away with Season of the Construct with my brand new Sorcerer. I'm going for a pyro build, and I'm already the best part of the way to level 50, so hopefully I'll be set up for some more endgame content after this weekend.

Jaimie Ditchfield

It's finally time! I'll be ordering myself a classic Hawaiian pizza from Dominoes, putting my legs up, and immersing myself in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. The last two entries have been among my favourites, so I hope this one delivers!

Jamie O'Neill

Last weekend I returned to 1999 by starting Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, yet while I expected a quick arcade blast, after ten hours of exploration playtime I've only just left Coruscant, so I'd misinterpreted Big Ape Productions' design focus on its PS1 game.

Liam Croft

I'm on review duty this weekend with Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden. I can't say anything about it for a few weeks, but I'm playing it and that's what you asked!

Stephen Tailby

I'm on a bit of a retro kick at the moment. I have so many modern games I've yet to even start, but I'm feeling the pull of old favourites, like Burnout 3: Takedown — which is still superb, by the way.

That's it from us, but what about you? What's on the agenda this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.
