Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 515 1

Well, this is something we didn't quite expect: everyone is obsessed with Helldivers 2. Seriously, if you'd told me even three days ago it'd outmuscle Suicide Squad, I never would have believed you. And yet, here we are.

Aaron Bayne

I'm squadding up this weekend in Helldivers 2, which has already proven itself to be a lot of fun. It's absolute carnage and is at its best when everything goes wrong for you.

Jamie O'Neill

While I'm intrigued to check out February's version 1.000.006 update to see if there are bug fixes and less glitches, and despite my curiosity following my Mini Review last year, I'm only slightly motivated to play Flashback 2 again.

Khayl Adam

Like many, I plan to spend the weekend dropping into the galaxy’s most hostile alien worlds in Helldivers 2. It really is a lot of fun, provided you can get a game, and I already have my eye on a few choices of kit I want to work towards. Higher difficulties really demand focus and coordination, and it’s dangerously easy to get sucked back into another mission.

Robert Ramsey

Time permitting, I'm going to try and play some Helldivers 2 this weekend, to see what all the fuss is about. I haven't stumbled upon a truly great co-op game since Monster Hunter World, so I'm hoping this one hits!

Sammy Barker

Everyone else is saying the same thing, so what the heck, huh? I might give this Helldivers 2 thing a go.

Stephen Tailby

I'm once again on review duties, so I'll be focusing on that this weekend. However, I might try to find some time for Helldivers 2, something I've been really looking forward to playing.

That's a lot of Helldivers 2, folks! But are you doing your part, or are you busy playing something else? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
